Jeff and Jordan | Fall Engagement Session | Drayton Plains Nature Center | Waterford, Michigan

FILED IN: Engagement

Jeff and Jordan like to take things slow. They dated for 3 years before they introduced each other to family {that takes some willpower!} and have been together for 5 years now. Like my husband and I, they also are taking their engagement nice and slow! They booked me last year for their fall 2019 wedding and we were finally able to execute their amazing engagement session!

When clients book with me one of the benefits is an engagement session {or family session!} style guide which walks them through everything from coordinating outfits to prop suggestions to location ideas. I LOVE when clients have somewhere that’s personal and unique to them to use as a location. In Jeff and Jordan’s case, it was the nature center that is behind their house.

To fully understand and appreciate how sentimental this location is to Jeff and Jordan, but especially to Jeff, it helps to know that they are currently living in {and renovating!} the home that Jeff grew up in. Not only is it the home that Jeff was raised in though, it’s also the home that his father was raised in! Isn’t that incredible?? What a legacy! As we were walking through the nature center they would stop and point out trees that Jeff used to climb as a child and the paths that he would run around and play with the neighbor kids on. That same path will be one where Jeff and Jordan take their own children to explore and there is something so powerful in that tradition.

Jeff and Jordan,

It was such a treat for me to get to explore one of your favorite places with you. I can’t wait to celebrate your wedding day with you and help you expand on this amazing legacy you’ve already created.
