Makayla & Zach // Grand Haven Engagement

Makayla & Zach // Grand Haven Engagement

Introducing Makayla & Zach! These two make such an awesome couple and we had such a great time capturing their Grand Haven engagement session. There was so much love and happiness in the air! We are so excited to share more of their photos with you.

We captured a variety of pictures around Grand Haven and the Lake Michigan dunes. We started in a breathtaking wooded area with some cool steps that made for a wonderful photo op! The photos continued around the dunes and all along the shore. Each location we took photos at was more romantic than the last! This spot was perfect for Makayla & Zach. It was a gorgeous day, and we were so thankful the weather cooperated! It’d been raining all day, but the sun popped out right before we started. The temperature wasn’t too hot, and the sky was beautiful.

Our fun-filled day was complete with some outfit changes to switch things up! We always love when our couples have great outfits that complement each other. One fun thing about this photoshoot was that we also got our workout in! We did a lot of walking and hiking to get those perfect views for our couple… so worth it! The beauty of Lake Michigan looked stunning in the background of our stylish couple.

Makayla & Zach’s Grand Haven engagement session was so romantic and joyful. We can’t wait to see these two this October for their wedding in Fremont! Until then… happy planning!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

MeMe & David // Cincinnati Engagement

MeMe & David // Cincinnati Engagement

Meet MeMe & David! Their Cincinnati engagement session was wonderful. We love our hometown, but it’s always a pleasure when we get an opportunity to take photos of our couples in different destinations! The love between MeMe & David is so genuine and sweet, and they were a joy to photograph. We’re so excited to share more of their session…

We met these two in downtown Cincinnati and started our session there. Cincinnati has so many cute, quaint photo spots! The buildings were so gorgeous and the trees were bright green and flowers were in bloom. We then traveled to one of their favorite breweries, where we of course had to get some beer. We snapped some photos of them and their drinks around the facility, and even got to photograph them in the basement of the brewery!

After, we went over to Ault Park, which holds a special place in their hearts… David proposed here! We had some fun and recreated their proposal for a few photos. The park was gorgeous, so we walked around and took many more photos of our couple! The sun was shining and the sky was beautiful, making for a perfect photo day.

MeMe & David’s Cincinnati engagement was a treat, and we feel so honored to work with them. We can’t wait for their wedding this fall! Until then, happy planning!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

Natalie & Josh // Cleveland Ohio Engagement

Natalie & Josh // Cleveland Ohio Engagement

Meet Natalie & Josh! We met up with these two Buckeye fans in Cleveland Ohio for their super sweet engagement session. We loved getting to photograph these two and we can’t wait to have them in front of our cameras next year at their wedding. Read on for more details from their session and see all of their photos!

We started off by the beautiful lake for photos along the shoreline. Lakewood Park was so beautiful and had so many locations to photograph with! There were tree lined paths by the water and a new addition to the park called the “solstice steps”, which are essentially really awesome large stairs over looking the water of lake Erie. After taking some photos on the water front, we headed into the park to capture the last of the fall colors for the season! It was sunny out so everything glowed so warmly.

It was pretty windy during their session. It was a chilly fall day near the lake, so the winds were strong, but we made it work! We found locations that made for some magic photos! Of course, it wouldn’t be a Cleveland engagement session with taking a photo with the “Cleveland” sign with the city skyline in the background! It was awesome. Near the end of their session, these two Ohio State fans changed into some Buckeye jerseys, then into some comfy Buckeye clothes! We love when we get to photograph our couples with things or places that mean so much to them. Being fans of Ohio State University is something these two share, so we just we had to photograph this!

We loved photographing Natalie and Josh in their home town! We can’t wait to see what they have planned for their wedding next year – We have a feeling that it’s gonna be pretty awesome. Happy planning!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

Erin & Nathan // Pigeon Forge Tennessee Wedding

Erin & Nathan // Pigeon Forge Tennessee Wedding

Meet Erin & Nathan! These two got married in Tennessee up in the great Smokey Mountains – Yes, it was an absolute dream. It was beyond worth the drive from Fort Wayne to photograph these two’s Pigeon Forge Tennessee wedding. Read on to learn more about Erin and Nathan and see our favorite wedding photos…

When we got the call from Erin to capture her and Nathan’s wedding, we were stoked! Fun fact, we captured both Nathan’s sister’s wedding and Nathan’s brother’s wedding (CLICK ME). So when we got the call to photograph Erin and Nathan’s wedding, we were so happy! Now all three Pritchard sibling weddings have been photographed by us. It just feels.. complete! Which is yet another reason we loved this wedding. It was so great seeing the Pritchard family again and meet Erin’s family too.

Erin and Nathan were originally going to have a destination wedding, but, as you may have guessed, COVID changed plans. Erin and Nathan decided to get married a little closer to home, but also wanted gorgeous scenery. The Smokey Mountains are just that! On the morning of the wedding, everyone got ready at Parkside Resorts, a stunning mountain cabin resort. (We loved them so much that we even booked one for our family vacation next year!) We’ll let the pictures do the talking for how gorgeous they are…

The wedding ceremony and reception took place at Mountain Mist Farms, a mountain top farm venue with views of the Great Smokey Mountains. Just steps below the barn, there was Erin and Nathan got married right as the sun began to set over the mountains – It was quite literally picture perfect! After the ceremony, we took family photos with the remainder of the sunlight, then took some portraits of the newly weds. The mountains for so dreamy to photograph in and so different from the cornfields we’re used to in Indiana.

The reception was awesome! Twinkly white lights hung from the ceiling, delicious foods were served, and yes, there were some hilarious toasts given. The night was filled with love, laughter, and you guessed it, dancing! Instead of serving traditional wedding cake, the sweet treat at the end of the night were pies.

Capturing Erin and Nathan’s wedding was so sweet. Having worked with this family so much, the whole day was just easy going and fun. We could not have asked for better weather or better people to photograph. Thank you guys for choosing us to capture your special day in Pigeon Forge Tennessee. We wish you two nothing but love and happiness with your new lives as newly weds. Best of luck to the both of you!!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

Hannah is a meteorologist and Rod is a news producer. We loved capturing this sweet Louisville engagement session… Read on to learn more about Hannah and Rod and see some of our favorite photos from their sweet session with us!

Wow. Where do we begin? First of all, Hannah and Rod were a dream to work with. They were so funny and easy going. They were up for anything we wanted to try and made everything work so nicely. Seriously, we can’t talk highly enough about these two. Chemistry, love, and easy going attitudes are how to make magic during an engagement session, and Hannah and Rod had all of that and more.

Although it was a bit of a drive to Louisville, we could not have asked for a prettier city to photograph in and explore. Hannah and Rod brought us to some beautiful spots, including a stunning park full of fall color. We also could not have asked for better weather. It was a sunny day with wispy clouds and a stunning sunset at the end of it. At the end of the session, we headed to the riverwalk area for some epic photos with the water, the bridge, and the sunset! You can see some photos of Hannah and Rod with the beautiful sunset below!

Hannah and Rod will be getting married in Fort Wayne next year at The Charles. We seriously can’t wait to see these two again and see what magic they’ll create on their wedding day. We loved exploring Hannah and Rod’s hometown. This Louisville engagement was one for the books! We’ll see you guys soon. Until then, happy planning!

It was so awesome of them to make this special trip just for us! Read on for more about Olivia and Vince and see some of our favorite photos from this sweet Purdue engagement session…

Olivia and Vince met at Purdue University, so naturally, that’s where we had to photograph their engagement session! They were so sweet with each other (so much chemistry and laughs with these two). We went to all the fun spots on campus: Purdue’s Engineering fountain, the Bell Tower, and of course the big Purdue university sign! We even photographed Olivia and Vince at their favorite bar, Harry’s Chocolate Shop! It was perfectly vintage and awesome in every way. At the end of the session, we found a really cool alley nearby with murals painted on every wall. This is where we finished out their engagement session! It was a great end to a great session with two great people.

We loved capturing this fun Purdue Engagement session! Lucky for us, we get to see these guys again soon at Mackenzie and Logan’s wedding in November – Olivia is her maid of honor!! We can’t wait to see you guys again and photograph your wedding. Until then, happy planning!
