Grand Rapids, MI
Congratulations to Jessica and Shane! What an amazingly sweet couple. They were such troopers, to want to be in the frigid, frigid cold for this session. Brrr.
The two met as co-workers years ago. They had to keep their relationship a secret because they were working together- even from best friends. It all sounds very sneaky and romantic. Years later, Jess and Shane found themselves building a house in Muskegon. They were on a walk by the lake one day, when Shane stopped at a gazebo and proposed. The proposal was caught on film, by someone working on the house with them. Sneaky sneaky.
Both Jess and Shane were all smiles at this session. I know they were just trying to stay warm, but I love how connected they were, and very natural. We shot downtown Grand Rapids, starting at the famous Blue Bridge. Then we strolled through the snow to warm up with some coffee, and stopped by the skating rink at Rosa Parks Circle. It was a beautiful night.
I love their story and I am very grateful that they chose me to capture it!! I can't wait for this wedding in September. Stay tuned...
