Allegan, Michigan | Michigan Fall Engagement | Markie + Tyler


“Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.”

Markie and Tyler were so much fun during their engagement session in Allegan. We started off at their home they just purchased and made our way to downtown Allegan. I loved how important it was to both Markie and Tyler to capture their love in front of their home. Bonus points for how beautiful their house is, I love Victorian style homes and that blue matched perfectly with their outfits! Just being around these two you can feel how in love they are.  

I asked Markie how they met and their engagement story, it’s too great not to share:

"Tyler and I first met five years ago at a bible study for young adults; we even had a number of mutual friends and acquaintances. Tyler proposed to me on July 1st of this year, about a week after moving into our new home.  We still had lots of unpacking and decorating to do and we were both working a lot overtime. We had just gotten home from work and were eating a quick Arby's dinner when Tyler announced (with a mouthful of beef and cheddar) that "we should just get married!' I wasn't sure at first if he was being serious, so I just laughed. Then, he put his sandwich down and got down on one knee and asked. I said yes! We got the ring a week later. It was a strange proposal for us since I am usually the spontaneous one and Tyler is more easy-going and doesn't like surprises. He likes to take his time and doesn't usually blurt ideas, or in this case proposals, out. But it was so fun and in the moment. Neither of us would change it for the world."

Congrats again Markie and Tyler, I can't wait for your September wedding next year!
