Dan, Lily, and Alex | Mini-Portrait Shoot

Lily's birthday was a few weeks ago and she wanted to do a photoshoot with her husband Dan and her puppy to celebrate! It was a photoshoot that was personal and special to them because it was in their home. We all know a home is full of memories, so I'm glad that I had an opportunity to capture a special memory. Alex was adopted a year ago and this is also Lily and Dan's first house together. After taking some photos in their home, we went to a park close to home to take a photo there as well. We ended our photoshoot outside their home. Happy Birthday to Lily and Happy Adoption day to Alex!  

Amy & Travis | Engagement

Another wonderful morning with a great couple! Amy and Travis were so fun to be with and we loved walking around Lily Park on this beautiful day. Abben loved talking computers and engineering with Travis. We started off walking the trails and ended in a beautiful lake area with a long winding bridge. Travis picked some daisies in a field for Amy, what a gentlemen! We are shooting their wedding later this year so we are excited to see them again. 

Chelsea & Aaron Engagement Shoot

We loved being with Chelsea and Aaron. They met in InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, an organization that Abben and I are both involved in. Chelsea is now on staff with InterVarsity while Aaron spends the day crunching numbers as a Certified Public Accountant. We loved getting to know them through our photoshoot and hearing more of their story. We originally planned to be in the law quad at The University of Michigan but when we arrived the whole place was shut down for reconstruction until December! Come on U of M, you need to send out more email updates! But Chelsea and Aaron were so flexible and were open to walking around campus and just exploring. We could tell just from this that the most important thing for them was just to be with each other, what they originally planned didn't bother them a bit. So we explore!

We found an adorable fenced off area but the fence was so low we just took that as a suggestion to keep out. We climbed over the fence to get to this area that had gorgeous flowers and huge oak trees. After our risky endeavor, we continued to walk around and found interesting art work that we tried to analyze but with no luck. We ended our time in the quad drinking hypothetical coffee. We had a great time and we are exited to shoot their wedding in a few weeks!  

Rosemarie and Aaron | Engagement Photography

We're especially excited to share these photos since Rosemarie and Aaron are Abben's community group leaders at Grace Ann Arbor. We are so excited to take their engagement photos as well as shoot their wedding in a few weeks. They both are so fun to hang out with and we loved walking through Lillie Park in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The weather was gorgeous and the sunset was beautiful. Congratulations to you both and can't wait to be with you on your special day!
