Troy + Kali -Engaged! {West Michigan Wedding Photography}

I had a FAB session with Troy and Kali last week downtown Rockford.   As I type this I can see leaves flying past my window on this blustery day in Michigan.  The sad part is that this happens every fall.  Just a day or two of high winds in October and it’s so long to our beautiful autumn leaves.   The season offered us one last hoorah last friday with warm temps, sunshine and blue skies. The golden leaves were absolutely radiant and made the perfect backdrop for their engagement session.

This session aged me a little.  I’ve known Troy since he was …maybe 7? I did his senior photos just …umm…9 years ago (YIKES!).  It took everything in me to keep from saying “Wow Troy, You’re all grown up, aren’t ya?”  ….Actually, I might have said that (sorry, Troy).  I’ve had a few brides where I’ve done their senior photos & then their weddings but Troy is the first guy!!!  (I’m just a little excited about that). He tolerated family photos when he was a kid, cooperated perfectly during his senior photos and he was amazing during the engagement session…and the wedding is just around the corner!

Anyway, they were a blast to work with and as with all of my couples I just loved the chance to spend time walking and talking, stopping for photos here and there.  Watching them settle in together, hold hands, laughing and seeing the sweet smile that Kali puts on Troy’s face made my job of photographing this beautiful couple that much easier.

Troy & Kali – I can’t wait for your wedding! 🙂

FANTASTIC photos!! Kal was so excited when she called and ask me to get to my email ASAP. I was delighted to see the results of all your efforts. Both kids look so relaxed and nonchalant, not all posed and unrealistic. We appreciate your skills in capturing the true essence of their relationship in your magical art, Kal & Troy’s feelings for each other were truly exhibited.

I called Kali’s Dad right away so he could view the photos and all he could say was “Gorgeous, she is just gorgeous.”. With the distance in miles between us all, we don’t get to see each other as much as we want so your photos are our surrogate.

I can’t wait to get my own piece of your art depicting my beautiful daugher and handsome future son-in-law!

Congratulations to Kal & Troy one more time!

Let’s stay positive that June 18, 2011 will be another photogenic day in Spring Lake.

Thanks!!! They were so great to work with! I was 8 years old when I met Melissa in 3rd grade, that was just 31 years ago! 😉

Terri, these are fantastic. But, you have a lot of help in that this couple is so great looking and so much in love. You can see it in their eyes and every movement that you captured so well in still photography. I too can’t wait to see the wedding pics and glad you are a part of it too. I’ve know you since you were what? 7?

Terri you very creatively captured Troy and Kali looking like they’re really having fun! The colors and great lighting from the gorgeous fall day combined with fabulously fun poses and beautiful settings in downtown Rockford made for so many breathtaking photos. I am so grateful the weather provided such a wonderful window for you and the kids to shine!

Absolutely LOVE the pics! Terri, our little Troy IS all grown up! I am absolutely thrilled that you get to be a part of this along with our family – both because of our friendship and history, and because you do AMAZING work! I can’t wait for the wedding, but mostly for the addition to our family! 🙂
