Downtown Grand Rapids Engagement
When Annie and Zach contacted me for their engagement session, I was thrilled to capture their love story in one of the most beautiful cities in Michigan. Downtown Grand Rapids offers endless possibilities for engagement photography, and we utilized two of the most popular locations in the area.
Our first stop was Riverside Park, which is located just a short 10-minute drive from downtown Grand Rapids. Riverside Park is known for its beautiful fall colors and stunning views of the Grand River. The park’s walking trails and footbridge provided the perfect backdrop for Annie and Zach’s romantic moments. We captured some beautiful shots of them walking hand in hand and enjoying the peaceful surroundings.
As a wedding photographer, I love using natural light to capture the essence of my couple’s love story. The golden hour light was perfect for this session, and the soft and warm tones of the setting sun complemented Annie and Zach’s style and personalities. We explored the park, capturing their love story as they laughed and enjoyed each other’s company.
After capturing some beautiful shots in Riverside Park, we headed to one of my favorite parking garages located in downtown Grand Rapids. This parking garage is not your typical one – it offers stunning views of downtown buildings and allows for what feels like complete privacy. We had the whole top floor to ourselves, and I was able to capture some incredible urban shots of Annie and Zach with the some of the city skyline as their backdrop.
The parking garage allowed us to get creative with our photography, and we captured some unique shots that showcased Annie and Zach’s personalities and love for each other. They were comfortable in front of the camera, and their chemistry was evident in every shot we took. From romantic moments to playful interactions, their love story was captured in a beautiful and authentic way.
I am thrilled to photograph Annie and Zach’s wedding day at The Goei Center next year. The Goei Center is a beautiful wedding venue located in downtown Grand Rapids, and it’s the perfect location for couples who want a classic and elegant wedding. The venue’s history and charm make it a unique and memorable place for a wedding, and I know Annie and Zach will have an unforgettable celebration. Make sure to check back here for their wedding blog!
