Holly & Alan’s Engagement Session

March 19, 2012

I’d been chatting with Holly and Alan’s wedding planner, Abby, for a week or so before I finally got to meet the adorable couple. After dinner and chatting at Panera the couple told me they had one more photographer to meet but if I could give them one week to decide, they would let me know their decision. I agreed on the one week and expected to hear something from them the following Monday but instead, Abby emailed only a few days later, stating that I should receive the retainer fee for their wedding soon. Before the week was up they had booked their May wedding with me and we’d settled on a date to shoot their engagement session.

I met Holly and Alan for their engagement session at Green Turtle Bay in Grand Rivers and after shooting there for the an hour, we moved down the road to Lighthouse Landing for the second hour. From the booking meeting, I knew that Alan was the goofy one who can make anyone crack a smile but always had Holly laughing while Holly was the sweet girl-next-door who found her love for hockey and bourbon through Alan. Together, they are absolutely perfect for each other and they both kept me on my toes with interesting conversation during their session.

I simply cannot wait for their wedding at The Purple Toad Winery….not only is it going to be beautiful, but from what I know about the couple, it’s going to be a blast!
