For Charlie + Wren's engagement session, we strolled around downtown Grand Rapids, then caught a glorious sunset on the shores of Lake Michigan at Kirk Park. These photos are full of warm sun and joyful love; keep an eye out especially for Wren's ring -- Charlie created it himself, and it is stunning!

I've been friends with Charlie for several years, and met his delightful lady Wren last fall. It was instantly evident the love and care they have for each other, and when they got engaged and asked me to photograph their wedding, I could not have been more excited. Charlie and Wren are kind, genuine, truly themselves, and love each other in a way that is inspirational and beautiful. I'm so blessed to know people like these and to be able to celebrate the art of their love.
