They drove all the way to GR from the east side of the state where they live (and will be getting married) so I made sure to find them some awesome locations. We stayed at B Thome Orchard for the first half of the session, for a little country feel, and then headed to downtown Grand Rapids for the city side (country boy, city girl, love it!). Alyssa wanted a fountain, so we made sure to swing by the GVSU downtown campus for a couple cool shots there, and then found a way into the garden hidden behind the building! I've been wanting to get in there for years! Thanks for helping out, you two!
Skylar and Alyssa will be married at the end of next August, so you'll see their smiling faces again in no time. For now, enjoy their awesome engagement session!

|^Barn and truck, the only place we used twice that day!|
|^Alyssa loved the water wall at the GRAM. Me too!|
|^There's still a little country, even in the city! Love this shot.|
|^Golden hour fountain shot :-)|
|^Took a similar shot of Skylar's cousin, Ryan, and his fiance over three years ago :-)|
