Grand Haven, Michigan | Alternative Engagement in the Woods | Alex + Matt

I can’t tell you how much I love Alex and Matt. These two are a hoot and a half, and I can’t wait for their wedding next year.

I met Alex a little over a year ago; we worked together and instantly hit it off. I’ve asked her before to help me with an idea I had for underwater pictures and she asked me if I would shoot her wedding when Matt asked her.

Of course, I asked Alex again if she and Matt would help me with some unconventional ideas for couple pictures when he was home for two weeks from the Army. I think it was the little push to get Matt to ask Alex to marry him. A few days before the session Alex texted me and asked if we could move the time up a bit of the session, because Matt had to go get something. She even texted me that she hoped it was a ring, and sure enough he asked her to marry him right before the session, so I was the second to know (the first was her mom!)

These are just a few of my favorite images from our session in the woods. It was such an honor to capture their engagement pictures right after Matt popped the question.
