Gretchen + Ryan | Engagement | Saint Joseph, MI

Sometimes, plans change, but that's not always a bad thing. Although the phrase "Plan B" has always had a slightly negative connotation in the English language, we often found that Plan B isn't always a bad thing. As a matter of act, some of our favorite sessions this year have been "Plan B," either because of scheduling or weather issues. When we think of the fact that Gretchen and Ryan were able to have their engagement shoot at their venue where they will get married three months from now, we think Plan B feels way more poetic and romantic than our first options!

We could instantly tell that Gretchen and Ryan perfectly personify our love of "joy" in our photos after only the first 2-3 minutes of their engagement shoot. Ryan's quick wit and personality instantly brought out the laughs in a way that made our job of capturing these two that much easier! Although their day at Etre was full of big decisions for their wedding in a few months, Gretchen seemed to leave all of that behind and enjoy a few free minutes with the man who will be saying "I do" in the same yard just three months from now!

Gretchen and Ryan, thank you so much for giving us something to forward to in November! After spending just a short mini session with you two, we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that your wedding is going to be one of the highlights of our fall! Not only were you two so fun to meet in person, but you naturally radiant that fun in your photos! Enjoy the next three month as you come into the home stretch of planning and preparing, we'll see you soon!

All our best!
