michigan engagement photos by meg van kampen

It's absolutely surreal to finally share our engagement photos with everyone. Our wedding photographer Meg Van Kampen spent a full day with us helping to crate the perfect session just for us. Both Kyle and I were quite nervous as it really was our first time in front of the camera.  It was such a good learning experience and was a great first exercise as a bride to really let go and trust my highly talented professional. It takes a team. 

We started the day out at Aquinas College in East Grand Rapids, Michigan (Kyle's hometown). Meeting Meg just before noon, we were blessed with some really wonderful light, which you'll see in the images below is Meg's forte as a natural light photographer. Just...beyond. After the college we reconvened at a beach just north of Holland, Michigan on the shore of Lake Michigan. I was hesitant to do a beach engagement session (I couldn't tell you why exactly) but obviously you can't go wrong with a Lake Michigan sunset. 

For details on our outfit visit my good friend Jessica's blog as she really helped us create a mood board for the engagement session. I def recommend working with a friend or family member to plan and buy outfits - it takes SO much pressure off the day if you're confident and feeling good.

Christmas Card! 

Jessica also did a recap of the engagement photos. It's so interesting seeing which photos were her favorite. Thanks to Meg for making this such a fun and successful session.
