It’s October and usually by this time photographers are burnt out and pushing through. Going through the motions, just getting the job done as best as they can. But man, Anne and Geneva were freaking inspiring. They put up with my endless word vomit of random directions and prompts and made everything their own. There’s […]
Detroit was home. It was where she had grown up, started out on her own, and first fell in love with the boy who she had never dreamed would enter her life. She took him home to her family and they would spend the long weekends trying out local eateries, listening to live concerts, and […]
It started out as a casual swipe right on her phone, something she barely thought anything of at the time. It wasn’t until they decided to meet up at the zoo to get to know each other that Jenni realized there was something different about this man she met on a dating app. His charm, humor, candor, and determination had her wishing the day would never end, and he felt the same way. They turned what was supposed to be a short date to the zoo turned into what Jenni still coins as “the best date day ever.” As laughter and endless banter rang through the trees of the rainforest, they planned a trip for mini golf immediately after their walk through the zoo ended. Mini golf turned into dinner, which turned to dessert. And as sun finally set and their first day in each other’s lives came to the end, they both knew- this was different. Immediately the next morning, Jenni called her Mom up and told her all about the man she swore she would someday marry.
Flash forward to a home and a life built around each other. Jenni and Kurt have turned into each others cheerleaders, motivators, and best friends. There was just two things missing – a diamond and a puppy. One early evening, Kurt showed up with both in hand and a question that Jenni had been waiting to hear since that first date in the zoo.
We thought it was only appropriate that Lylah joined us on the adventure to celebrate Jenni and Kurt’s engagement, and oh my gosh my heart almost died. Jenni and Kurt, thank you for letting me swoon all over your adorable Australian Shepherd all evening and exploring downtown with me! Counting down until next year when I can see all your precious faces again! xx- M
It was on a Thursday when he had the feeling that this might be it. The gorgeous brown-eyed girl was sitting next to him on a couch, sipping a margarita as they agreed to start dating. He had never met someone who complimented his character so perfectly – her straightforward personality harmonized with his dreamer’s soul, while her bubbly laugh rang through the room as Brandon’s witty humor entered the smooth cadence of conversation. After that night, they were inseparable.
Through the next half-decade, Kristina and Brandon did the seemingly impossible. As they both encouraged and pushed each other through college and full-time jobs, they started a family. When it seemed that all odds were against them, they made it work. They became stronger. They fell even deeper in love. And on a Monday, just as fireworks framed the Fort Wayne skyline, Brandon fell on one knee and asked Kristina to be his bride.
Exactly five years after they sipped margaritas on the couch, on a Wednesday, they became husband and wife. Family and friends surrounded them, sipped champagne, and made heartwarming speeches about the love that Kristina and Brandon share. Kristina and Brandon – documenting your day was the greatest joy, and I can’t wait to see all the adventures life has for you. You are a true power couple and the most perfect match – xx, M&M
