A His and Hers Engagment Session


A His and Hers Engagment Session

An outdoor engagement session-

from the forest to the city streets

   Meet Marisa and Craig- the most adorable couple that have nothing in common.
   Ok, that’s a total lie. But if you ask them strictly how they feel about the outdoors, well, then, it’s partially true. haha
   As we all know, relationships are about sacrifices and getting outside of our comfort zones, or for Marisa getting outside, like really outside....  Craig loves the outdoors. He’s happy in the woods. Actually- if he had his way we would have photographed this whole thing outdoors in the middle of winter, but... time wouldn’t allow us to do that, since we are photographing their wedding in a few short months! Marisa, who told us the woods was NOT her thing, trusted me though when I told her it would be worth the struggle to get some amazing shots... while also making her future hubby pretty happy.
   He was pretty impressed with her as she trudged through tall, picky grass, laid with bugs, and sat down right in the middle of the dirty woods. So when we switched things up and went downtown, Marisa was in her element and we looked for Craig to found that common ground. Spinning around the city streets in her dress and dancing, Craig held her hand the whole way.
   Their chemistry together is adorable. They connect on a level where it doesn’t matter if their interests clash... because they have everything else to offer each other, like love, respect, friendship, and a bond I know is unbreakable and meant to be.
   Learn from them. Love each other. Accept others differences and tightly embrace what brings you together.

Fairytale Wedding by Port Huron, MI Wedding Photographer ajbc photography

Audrey and Adam.
A young couple who came to us with the most easy going of attitudes. They were getting married and needed it captured beautifully. End of story. They told us the theme was fairytale, and we thought to ourselves, "That's cute. But like most couples, aren't all weddings meant to be like a fairytale?"
Whoa. I will fully admit we were wrong and 100% underestimated the amazingness of their Fairytale (and yes I capitalized it bc it was THAT legit!)
We walked in to an explosion of magic everywhere. Every Disney fairytale you've ever heard about was there, all hand made and put together by the bride and her mom. 
Take a look!


Even when you stepped away from the reception hall, reality was still graced with that magical feeling. True, beautiful emotions were floating around as everyone scrambled to get ready and hug one last time before entering the ceremony. 


When we had just 1 hour to break away and get outside we took them to a local place we had found that looked as though it jumped out of the pages of a fairytale written 100 years ago. The vines, stained glass, and old bricks were just what we needed to make their story that much more real.

Back at the reception we watched them start their new lives together. Love literally bounced all around that room. It was so strong and true I'm not sure how we all didn't cry. The whole day was truly touching and I'm SO glad we were a part of it.

Whimsical and Mysterious Family Shoot by Port Huron Family Photographer AJBC Photography

#1 This family is ridiculously good looking. 
#2 They rock those black leather jackets like nobodies business.
#3 They are the sweetest people 
#4 Meet Jen, my Professional Hair and Makeup Artist from Inspire Hair Studio. This is the friendly, beautiful face that makes YOU look gorgeous when you book with me! 

When I really think about it, I've known Jen for 10 years. Wow! It all started because in high school her sister had the most rockin' hair and I had to know where to she went to get it cut. 
After never getting what I asked for elsewhere, I decided to try out Jen and I have NEVER even thought about looking back. She is an artist with scissors. 

When I started getting more custom with all of my shoots I decided to add a Hair and Makeup Artist to my team, and that choice was obvious. Boom, Jen jumped on board and now we're working on several different projects together!

But I'm not here to talk about me... I want to share with you how we got here, to this session!

(Can we just take a moment to talk about how STUNNING they both look above!) 

Over time I've gotten to know her family too. They were actually some of the first clients that believed in me when I first started AJBC Photography. During our first session their son was still all wobbly while running around. Fast forward to now and the kids were like little models! 

(and let's take another moment to talk about how cute these kids are!!)

If you're wondering where the scene came from, it all developed right in Jen's head. One day she got ahold of me with this "dark" but pretty vision of shooting at night with lights. 
I took that vision and added in some smoke, pops of blue, and we were both pretty excited about it. So excited that Jen actually painted her living room to match. haha! 

I'm so lucky to have Jen as a friend, and an amazing hairdresser for myself, and a fabulous team member to work with!! haha Her family is ridiculously lucky to have her as such a smokin hot wife (yeah, I said it) and such an involved mom. But she's pretty lucky to have these cuties too, and I'm SO happy I was able to bring her vision to life with her and capture her and her family in such a unique way.

A snowy engagement session by AJBC Photography Port Huron Couple and Wedding Photographer


A snowy engagement session by AJBC Photography Port Huron Couple and Wedding Photographer

These two! Oh my gosh... these two! <3 Meet Jen and Zack, the worlds cutest couple. 
A little history- I remember Zack as being my friend's little brother, not a grown up man ready to get married to this gorgeous fiancé that has eyes that would make any woman jealous!
They asked me to come out to their house for this session and I am beyond happy they did. The views were out of this world. The back of their house faces the closest thing that us Port Huron kids are going to get to mountains. And with 80+ acres being theirs, they are 100% tucked away back in their own little world. 
Barns, bows, and fur babies- their place was perfect for what their vision was together. 
Jen also asked for snow, and whoa, did she get it. We probably got a good 6 inches dumped on us right before their shoot and it made for the perfect backdrop. Not to mention the sun was out and they were able to get some shots in without their winter wear. 
Aside from all that, I still can't get over how cute they are together and how easy this session was. They interacted and I just shot. Ok, maybe there was a bit more to it, but that's what it felt like.
