Darren + Careta | Downtown Grand Rapids Engagement Photos Session
Hey everyone sorry for not posting in a while! But at least I’m back with one fab session, featuring this stunning couple Darren and Careta.
Location: The always good to me Downtown Grand Rapids.
Working with these two was such a joy. At first ( like most people), they were a tad bit camera shy. However, with some encouragement and laughter they were pros by the end. I can’t get over how much Darren makes Careta smile from a joke to just a simple touch. The love that these two have for one another puts a giant smile on my face. (Speaking of smile wait until you see Careta’s smile.) Hopefully, you to will be able to look though these images and get the same “awww” and mushy feeling that I had.
Downtown Grand Rapids was beautiful and worked magic for us.
From the city scape to the beautiful midday lighting. I’m more than grateful for the time I was able to share day with such a kind and loving couple in such a great city.
The goal I have when working with photographing couples is documenting their love story. I want to see the two of you connect and react to one another, laugh, dance and just being yourselves with one another. And I truly believe, that Darren + Careta’s session reflects that!
So if you plan on getting your engagement, wedding or even family photo taken anytime soon remember to relax and be yourselves. It isn’t not all about the location, or the clothes think of those as an added bonus. What it really comes down to in the end is capturing your love, happiness and personality through film.
How about some fantastic advice from the love birds:
“Regardless of what life brings or throws your way it is very important to remember that marriage is for the other person not yourself. When you have an understanding of wanting to make the other person happy then everything else will fall into place. Life is too short to hold on to the negatives. Live love and forgive so that you can live life to the fullest!”
