NICHOLE & RANDY, ARBORETUM ENGAGEMENT SESSION


Nichole and I have been talking for quite some time over the location and style of the engagement photo shoot. She really wanted to do it somewhere in woods. It was also in the middle of blossoming season, so I suggested the Leila Arboretum in Battle Creek. It couldn't have work better for us! That place offer both. You walk in between pine trees and suddenly there is a row of pink trees ahead of you. What a gorgeous place...


They drove about 3 hours down and what mature nature planned for us wasn't expected at all! Nichole was getting hair and makeup done (kudos to Design 1 Salon in Portage - doesn't Nichole looks absolutely stunning with that loose braid and bold lips?!) and we were texting back and forth, because the thunderstorms were in the forecast later that evening (yes - golden hour time!). Since we didn't want to do this shoot indoors, we had to reschedule it for earlier that day. Luckily, we didn't have a drop of rain and sun even showed up at the very end of our beautiful day together.

The arboretum was in full bloom. Everywhere! We couldn't decide on where to start:). Randy and Nicole brought their two pups, who actually met for the very first time. They were not thrilled about it, but at least they seemed to tolerate each other! LOL! We were trying to put them together in the picture and for most part, they were up for it. When the finally had enough, we went on with some more engagement pictures. Randy just looks at her with such loving eyes... You can tell he absolutely adores her! I found myself smiling while editing this session!


And how did the humans actually decide to get hitched? Nichole shares their proposal story...
