We spent the whole day with these two before their Engagement Session in Houghton Michigan and it was far from boring! We scouted locations, saw where he proposed, had some delicious beer and pizza and tons of great laughs! When they first asked if I would travel up to Houghton Michigan I was like HECK YES! Justin and I LOVE the Northwoods & Lake Superior, and reason to head that way with a great couple I jump on it!
These two met at college in Houghton, and this college sounded like the coolest ever! They had beach parties, a engineering building that was built in the wrong direction (ironic?), it kind of looked like Yale, and an awesome husky statue in the middle! We were hoping to get some traditional pasties but of course doing shoots on Sunday’s has it’s draw backs – the go to place was closed. So we went to the second best thing – PIZZA and BEER! This was the last thing we did together with this couple before embarking on their super fun engagement session, where we went to Lake Superior, where he proposed, danced in the woods, ran in a parking lot, and climbed down a sand dune.
It is really hard for me to find the right words to describe this session because it was so much fun! These kinds of sessions are what happens when a couple trusts their photographer, takes that photographer to awesome locations and are up for taking their shoes off and walking in the wet sand. These are my kind of people!
