Malia & William’s Engagement Session!

April 3, 2014

“If you can make a woman laugh, you can make her do anything.” -Marilyn Monroe


So, last January [2013, when we had pretty much no snow, and it was warm enough to not wear jackets for outdoor portraits], I photographed Megan and Cam’s wedding down in Indy [don’t remember/just want to reminisce? CLICK HERE].  Well, this year I get to photograph Megan’s sister Malia’s wedding in Kalamazoo, Michigan!

It’s pretty awesome to photograph a wedding where a past bride is one of the guests, but to hang out and photograph this family again [plus William’s family, of course], is going to be sooo fabulous!

Malia, William and I hopped around South Bend for their engagement portraits a couple weeks ago, and while it was a bit chilly, their images turned out AWESOME!  If I were to sum up their engagement session into one word it would be: laughey [apparently that’s not a real word, but I’m making it a word].  William is so sweet on Malia, and just makes her laugh and laugh.  I loved it.

You both are lovely!  I so enjoyed photographing you [first engagement session of 2014!].  Looking forward to your wedding this summer!
