What can I say about Anastasia and Craig? First of all, I was VERY excited to meet them for their session. Anastasia was very eager to get the session in when we realized our idea (sunflowers!) may only be possible for another week or so at that point. So within a week of first talking to her, we were meeting up. She and Craig are so lovey and cute together. Their photos were very candid and full of really bright and silly smiles. After our sunflower photos, we went to Rosy Mound in West Olive, which is a place Anastasia said she has known for a long time she would want to do engagement photos someday. I hadn't been there myself in years so since we were having a good time together, being silly, following turkeys and talking about our cats, we decided to make the hike to Lake Michigan through the woods at Rosy.
On a gorgeous evening like it was, despite the sweat, it was well worth the hike. Some of our favorite shots came from that leg of our session and even if we ended up shooting a lot later than planned, nobody was sorry about it.
These two are getting married next August and I pretty much can't wait to work with them again!!!
