Couples Photo Shoot

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.

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!
