60+ Degrees In February?! A Styled Bridal Shoot | Alyssia Booth's Candid & Studio | Lansing Mi

This week we had insanely beautiful weather! 60+ degrees, blue skies and sunshine... completely out of place for the mitten state. Usually I’m freezing and wrapped in 3 sweaters and a coat this time of year with a hot mug of cocoa or tea. This past Sunday though I got together for a shoot *outdoors* with four gorgeous models and a group of awesome photographers! The Scott Sunken Gardens (our chosen location) was green and coming back to life, covered in sunshine, and birds were singing.  A few clouds dotted the sky, but otherwise it was a vision of spring!

Marisa & Garrett 10.23.15 | Wedding at the Lawton Heritage Community Center | Kalamazoo Mi

"When he proposed, we were up north visiting his family in Traverse City. I knew something was up because the whole drive north, he was fidgety and staring at me. We went to his childhood home, and talked with his father and stepmother for an hour or so and then he got very impatient and stated we needed to leave to visit his mother. (She wasn't supposed to even be out of work for another hour). I thought he was being ridiculous, but I went along with him and headed outside. It was raining and he turned and asked me to walk with him. I remember looking at him like he was crazy and asked him if I could put my things in the car so they wouldn't get wet. He tossed my phone in his pocket and asked again if I would walk with him. I agreed and in my cloth shoes he led me to this gorgeous tree on his dad's property. He looked at me, and started it with "You know I love you, right?" I responded that I loved him too, and he said "I want to spend the rest of my life with you." Figuring out what he was doing must have fried my brain because I responded with, I love you too. (Again). 
He got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. I said yes, and he tried to put the ring on the wrong hand, hahaha.
We went and told his family and I called all of mine. It was a really unforgettable night." ~Marisa

Marisa & Garrett's Engagement Photo Shoot | Alyssia Booth's Candid & Studio | Kalamazoo, Michigan

This Friday I have the honor of photographying this beautiful couple's wedding! I can't wait! 

Marisa + Garrett's Engagement Photo Shoot | Kalamazoo | Alyssia Booth's Candid & Studio

A perfect pair, this is how Marisa and Garrett found each other (in her words)...  "He met me at my absolute worst, lol. It was a 8am Monday morning computer business class in January of 2013. I noticed his tattoos. He was one row ahead of me, several people down. I must not have had my glasses on because I was squinting trying to see what his ink was. He went home and told his then roommate there was a girl staring/glaring at him, hahaha. 
It turned out that he was really terrible at computers and that is what I'm getting my degree in. I offered to help him in class and shortly after he called and asked if I could help outside of class. I went over to his house that day, and I think we've seen each other every day since."

The above photos are on a little island in the middle of a wide river. Marisa and Garrett were brave enough to venture out to it for a few photos! We all got a bit damp... and had a lot of laughs!

JJ + Julianna | Secret Ninja Proposal | Alyssia Booth's Candid & Studio | Okemos Mi Photographer

This summer I found a beautiful field of purple wild flowers. It was a perfect location for a dreamy romantic proposal. I sent out a few messages and found a couple of willing models! 

JJ and Julianna had perfect chemistry right from the start, and amazing acting skills. It was like they'd known each other forever, they were THAT convincing.

Engagement | JJ&J | Alyssia Booth's Candid & Studio | Lansing Mi |  Couples Photographer

While I was doing photograhy, my sister, Kristina, was shooting a Love Story and Announcement Video.
When we shared the photographs and videos, JJ and Julianna's friends and family were very surprised! They had missed that little faux engagement note! Both models got an insane amount of congratulations and comments, a few OMG notes, and some panicked emails from family. It was hilarious and a lot of fun!

Paul proposed to Lauren on a dock (pictured), overlooking a Higgins Lake sunset. It took place during a weeklong trip that his family arranges every July. It was their last night before they were supposed to head back to Lansing. The sunset was perfect that evening...
