i’ve heard a lot of stories of how the couple met. and i love every single one. but i would never forget stephanie & ryan’s. they were sooo meant to be together. growing up in the northern peninsula of michigan, he was recruited down to grand valley as a cross country runner. he obviously has mad skills. ryan roomed with one guy and met his girlfriend named stephanie. he then roomed with a different guy in college, and met his ‘new’ girlfriend … stephanie … finally when she figured it out … it wasn’t all these other guys she was suppose to be with, but the one right under her nose the whole time … ryan.
they plan to get married over labor day weekend next year and i couldn’t be more thrilled to head up to northern michigan and capture their wedding day. this girl is organized, maybe even more than me and i loved all her fun props she brought to their engagement shoot. we moved spots a lot and finished right before the storm came. i even had the honor of meeting their cute dog who is not a small dog like they described him to be. poor koda. he did so good though with a sign around his neck. wasn’t sure what his mom was doing to him though.
these two are total wine-o’s too so we had to have a glass of wine to celebrate the engagement … yes yes, they poured me one too. so i was drinking while shooting … don’t worry. this won’t happen again. they forced me to. peer pressure ;)
happy tuesday. enjoy.
isn’t stephanie going to be a GORGEOUSSSS BRIDE?! can’t wait ;)
