Brent and Taylor | Elegant Downtown Engagement Session | Ah-Nab-Awen Park and Brewery Vivant | Grand Rapids, Michigan

FILED IN: Engagement

It’s not often that I get to say I knew before the bride when she was going to be engaged! Taylor and I have a mutual friend named Kaitlyn. I have photographed Kaitlyn’s family numerous times and even was the photographer for her brother-in-law’s wedding this year! When Kaitlyn approached me about gifting an engagement session to her friends Brent and Taylor I was so honored. This is one of the highest compliments someone could give me and it’s an incredible gift if I dare say so myself. When I found out later that Taylor wasn’t quite engaged yet I was even more excited that she already knew she wanted ME to be her engagement photographer! Fast forward a bit and Brent and Taylor are engaged and planning a beautiful wedding in Traverse City next summer. It’s going to be such a magical day!

Brent and Taylor live in downtown Grand Rapids {or TownTown Rapids as my two year old calls it} and if you follow me at all you know that my family is obsessed with this little big city of ours. I was seriously thrilled when Taylor and I realized that we love a lot of the same places in the city and even more so when she said she wanted to use those places during their session! We started the afternoon out at Ah-Nab-Awen Park, which has one of my favorite views of the city. We walked around a bit and explored before heading over to Brewery Vivant. The brewery holds a special place in their hearts because it’s where they fell in love over beer and pretzels with beer cheese. It’s also where Brent officially asked Taylor to be his girlfriend. Cue the happy tears!

Brent and Taylor,

You are such a beautiful couple and I’m truly excited for where this journey will take you together. Thank you for trusting me to document this momentous time in your lives!
