Picnic and some vino! Cheryl and Marcus

Grand Rapids Wedding Photography
Spring Grove Park
Engagement Session

Congratulations to Cheryl and Marcus!! What an amazing and sweet couple! They met their last year of college through mutual friends. Many friends had graduated, so Cheryl and Marcus started spending more time together. After being chased by Marcus for almost a year, they graduated and did the long distance thing for a couple years.  Marcus lived in Ohio and Indiana to pursue his teaching career, and Cheryl stayed in Michigan and started working in Grand Rapids. After almost two years, he realized he couldn't stand being without her everyday and moved to Grand Rapids. He proposed at a friend's cottage up north last May. He asked her to come sit on the dock and started talking about how they had been together for five years... and then he pulled a ring out of his pocket.

I am honored to document their story. For this engagement session, at Spring Grove Park, in Grandville, the light was so beautiful!! You know I like the sun flare. I couldn't stop shooting, which made it very difficult to cull and edit this session! Marcus is actually a wine rep, so they had a little vino while the sun was setting. Beautiful day, beautiful people. I love my job.

I cannot wait to photograph this wedding in June!! Stay tuned.

Here is a sneak peek. Enjoy!
