janelle + cody :: engagement

at the time, they weren’t looking for each other. they were single and having fun. i love how cody worded it when he was telling me the story, saying he would have never guessed he would meet a girl and fall in love at that time in his life. he was just hanging out with the guys and having fun and then bam, there’s janelle. its been about two and a half years and their ready to tie the knot in only a few short weeks!!! they’ve been busy working on their house, they also went the remodeling route which is very fun but also a wee bit stressful. cody seems to be handling it well though. he likes to fix things. in the past its been jet skies and motorcycles but now he’s turned to houses. and janelle is right there helping him … or more so keeping him company while he does so. she was very quick to tell me that he has a garage full of ‘stuff’ i believe she called it … waiting to be worked on. so he keeps himself busy.

if i remember right, janelle and i had some sort of english class together and i loved talking to her about her twin sisters. i was always fascinated by multiples, probably because i grew up obsessed and watching mary-kate and ashley olsen. YUP. i just admitted that. janelle used to always tell me that everyone thought they were triplets because the 3 of them are so close in age, and that’s what started out our daily conversations and she was always so sweet and i loved having class with her. we waved to one another in the hall and kept to ourselves until english class would role around again and then of course i would start chatting her ear off. pretty sure i looked for anyone that would listen to me talk. and janelle was that girl that i loved talking to and i was SO HAPPY when she emailed me even before she was engaged to tell me she had to have me. how flattering, and how much i love hearing from old friends from high school. i couldn’t wait to catch up and talk her ear off again. we actually didn’t talk about this at all at our session janelle, so you’ll have to tell me if i’m way off. lol. its been awhile.

there are so many of my favorites from this session that are laughing moments. and these are not fake laughs people, real genuine laughs. janelle and cody are so cute together and so comfortable with one another it shows. which is good … because you have to be in order to get married. they have fun and laugh with one another and i really enjoyed photographing them. it was a breeze. it wasn’t the best weather out but we made due and had fun capturing these two in this so called thing michigan has been giving us called ‘winter’. our boots were wet but we were laughing and even had a few deer run by us [and scare the crap out of me]. hope you enjoy looking at these lovelies. they will be hitched april 27. <3
