Steve and Caitlin | Chilly Beach Engagement Session | Saugatuck Dunes State Park

FILED IN: Engagement

I cannot begin to tell you how excited I was to see these two beautiful faces. Photographing couples who are so obviously head-over-heels in love with each other is one of the only times in my life where I can say I truly lose track of time. This was no exception. I put my phone away as we hiked through the woods to arrive at the lakeshore and when I pulled my phone back out again at the end, I realized nearly two hours had passed!

We weren’t only posing and taking photo {two hours would be a LONG time for that haha}. We were getting to know each other even more and having difficult discussions about what could be to come for their July wedding. These two have been together for 7 years and like many of my couples, they absolutely have invested in their wedding and they want all of their dreams to come true. That goes without saying. But one thing that also holds true is the resounding consensus that at the end of the day all that matters is being married.

Ten years from now they won’t be dwelling on whether they could only have 50 guests or even if they had to make a decision to postpone. Ten years from now they will be celebrating the last decade spent together, raising a family, excelling in their careers, creating priceless memories together. They will be celebrating the hard work and dedication it takes to wake up each and every day saying “I still choose you”. And for this, my friends, we will all be celebrating with you.

Steve and Caitlin,

Thank you for choosing me {see what I did there?! haha!} to help you document your memories. I can’t wait to watch you commit to one another, whether it’s in July or December, in front of 50 or 250. I will be here cheering you on and supporting you.
