Brandon and Caitlin have a love story that could be the plot of one of those romance novel you read while laying on the beach in the summer. They both grew up around Lake Linden MI, went to school together and were great friends. While initially their paths diverged, over time they found themselves together – at last!

Although they initially planned to have their engagement pictures in the fall, life happened and we ended up bumping the session back to December. I was a bit worried that everyone would end up with red noses and cold toes, even packing extra travel Kleenex in my bag just in case. However, the mild 2020 winter sent good weather our way. We ended up with a crisp but sunny afternoon spent exploring among the pines.

Caitlin and Brandon love to spend time outside and with their family – including their two children, who they brought along to their engagement session at School Forest in Lake Linden, MI. While I encourage couples to bring an extra person to keep an eye on the kids so they don’t feel like they need to watch them every minute, I love when couples bring their kids with them!

Just like the engagement session is a time for the couple to get to know us and become comfortable, it helps children warm up to us as well!

Brandon and Caitlin will marry at School Forest next summer and we loved doing their engagement session here. We spent time getting a feel for the property and talking through their wedding plans. It’s always a bonus for us when we have the opportunity to visit the location with the engaged couple. From seeing the getting ready space to the ceremony location, it’s going to be beautiful!

I was so glad to find a patch of snow to make Caitlin’s ring really pop! There wasn’t much on the ground but we made it work.

Brandon and Caitlin – your Lake Linden MI engagement session was a blast! Thank you for choosing Rob and I to be a part of your special day. We can’t wait for summer to be here so we can celebrate your love story fully!
