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!

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!
