Downtown Flushing, Michigan Engagement Pictures
She had me at the words, "I think I'll be wearing a blush tulle skirt." When Marita, Kirt, and I sat down to chat about some ideas for their engagement session I was doing a happy dance as Marita told me about their outfit choices! I feel like day-to-day you wear what you need for work or for comfort, but there aren't many opportunities to really rock a blush tulle skirt. I always want my couples to feel like themselves in their engagement portraits, but in my opinion there is no such thing as too dressed up when it comes to the engagement session!
Marita and Kirt did an amazing job with coordinating the colors of both their outfits - how handsome is Kirt in his grey suit jacket and purple shirt!? - but I think my favorite part of the session was Marita and Kirt's fun attitude! Their laughter and easy-going nature made it so easy to work with them and a joy to photograph!
Marita and Kirt - I can not WAIT for your wedding later this year and I want to say a heart-felt congratulations again on being engaged!!
Marita loves tea and had a favorite little coffee shop in downtown Flushing called The Elbow Room where her and Kirt shared a couple coffee drinks before we ventured into the cute little downtown square!
I love all of these little moments where Marita and Kirt would just make each other laugh!
Marita and Kirt decided to walk around downtown Flushing and were grinning and having so much fun the whole time!
I think long, flowy skirts and dresses look amazing on camera because they bring extra movement to the photos - especially when your fiancé decides to twirl and dance around with you!
Marita you really are just so beautiful!
From James Bond to Don Draper, men look most striking in a well-tailored suit. Kirt's solid shades of gray and chambray blue are such a strong compliment to Marita's outfit!
Marita and Kirt then decided to casually explore the Flushing Nature Trail with it's beautiful green trees and winding river and the evening light was dreamy, golden, and gorgeous for photos!
I just love the way these two look at each other! So much love!
As we walked around the nature trail, I told Marita and Kirt, "You know, with the river, tall trees, and everything it looks like you guys could be in Colorado not Michigan!"
Congratulations you guys!! I'm so excited for you both!
