Alexi and Dave | Engel Farms Lawrence, Michigan

This was one of those amazing days that every time I look at the pictures I wish we could do it all again.  Alexi and Dave are a beautiful, sweet, and fun couple that was an absolute delight to work with.  Everything was so beautifully planned and though we had a bit of a rain scare at the beginning it all worked out perfectly in the end. This was my first time shooting at Engel Farms in Lawrence, Michigan and I can’t say enough about this wonderful location. I can’t wait to go back! Here are a handful of my favorites from Alexi and Dave’s day.

I love it when it rains just as I’m leaving. <3 Congrats Alexi and Dave! I wish you both all the best of life and love together!!


Special thanks to the amazing team at Engel Farms that made the day run so smoothly! And to my second shooter for the day Matt Pratt!
