Is there a more perfect beginning to a photo session than making breakfast foods and cuddling on your own couch with your animals together?? I’m pretty sure there is not, and I cannot tell you how thrilled I was when Michael&Alyssa suggested that’s where we start.

These two are so special to Drew and I. Not only are they truly beautiful humans through and through, they are also dear friends. When we had to move unexpectedly last year, Alyssa is one of the first neighbors that we met who made us feel right at home. We loved spending time together on our cozy Grand Rapids porch just chatting and laughing for hours. It wasn’t long after our move that we noticed she was spending an awful lot of time with a handsome man named Michael, who had quite the sparkle in his eye whenever he looked at her. :)

So needless to say, when these two lovebirds eventually (inevitably) got engaged, we were OVER the moon excited that they asked us to capture these lovely moments for them. And of course… we had to end our session with a few snuggles on the porch where it all began.

M&A - you two are the real deal and then some. It’s beautiful and encouraging to see how you light up when you’re together, and that this kind of love exists in the world.

All of our love!
