Joe and Kristen

Karina and I were so blessed to meet Kristin and Joe today for their engagement shoot. Engagement shoots are much more than just pictures for us, because we use this time to get to know the couple. A wedding is such a personal event, where you are surrounded by your closest friends and family. If we can be comfortable with the couple before that day arrives, It’s a better experience for everyone.

Joe is so full of energy and wit. He’s constanly smiling and making her smile. Kristin is peaceful and thoughtful. His constant companion.

One of the really interesting things about their wedding is that it’s so similar to Jeremy and Julianna’s wedding. Just like Jeremy and Julianna, they’re doing a winter engagement shoot in Chicago, the ceremony will be in Spring Arbor Free Methodist Church and the reception will be at the Armory Arts building in Jackson. We must attract a very specific customer.

They get a lot of admiration from us for braving the cold and snow so well. Kristin was wearing heels throughout the shoot, and we had to walk through a lot of snow and slush. Their bravery payed off. You can feel the energy and affection they have for each other through the photos.
