When they asked me to photograph their engagement session I was completely honored and excited. We started at the Amway Grand Plaza and ended up at Fredrick Meijer Gardens.

The thing I like about couples like this? They’re down for whatever I throw at them. “Hey guys, get in the elevator, make out for a second, then hit the doors.” 😉

We did make our way to the JW Marriott lobby for a few shots as well.

Disclaimer: If you’re going to shoot at the gardens you must be patient as it is a popular spot for locals and tourists alike. No worries, though. We were able to avoid the crowds at the perfect times.

Engaged couples continue to be some of my favorite subjects to photograph and this stunning couple didn’t disappoint. It’s an honor to have some of the most beautiful clients. Clients who are willing to go the extra mile with me to shoot at beautiful locations and try new things. I wish these two the very best in everything that comes their way and also I CANNOT wait for their wedding this fall.

What are your favorite photos from this session? Do you prefer the city feel of downtown Grand Rapids or do you like the Gardens more?
