Derek + Sam // Peacock themed colors and fall goodness! // Kalamazoo Engagement Photographer

Derek and Sam are from Iowa so they made the trip over here to get their engagement photos done. Luckily, all our schedules work out perfectly for them to show up right near the end of the best part of fall. It wasn’t cold here yet and still had some awesome color on the trees. We spent all day shooting and all went out to Carrabas afterwards and I ate until I couldn’t move any longer. Thats the perfect end to a long day. :)

I’ve also turned sam into an Etsy addict! :) She bought some amazingly cute headbands for the shoot and I think is planning a sort of peacock themed wedding. I literally squealed hearing her ideas and seeing a picture of her dress. I think it will rival hopes dress even!

They bought an engagement book and guest book to go along with their photos so I thought this would be the best way to show off all their best pictures. :) I haven’t designed the guest book yet, but that will come soon.

We also tried our hand at video. We have not had time to put it together yet since we are still crazy busy but I’m really excited for it. It seriously makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside watching them talk about each other. It’s great to shoot couples who really have the love and they are just super cute together. I’m basically extremely excited to trek to Iowa for their wedding day. :) Seriously people….the LOVE!!! look at it! :)

Bottom left photo is one of the etsy headbands! The fabric roses were so amazing. I learned how to make them a few months back but mine are not as awesome as these at all, haha

Thanks for sticking it through the day with us guys, it was a long shoot but I think very worth it! Soooo Soo Excited for your wedding!!

NOTE: These are the images for the album design, so the middle is the cut of the spread which is why some of the white lines don’t match up. I’m not lazy or overlooking it, it’s just because the cut. Don’t judge. :)
