Emma Rose and Bryce got engaged over Easter weekend and are currently planning a winter wedding at Our Lady of Good Counsel in Plymouth, Michigan! Winter weddings are just stunning and I cannot wait to see what Emma Rose and Bryce design for their special day! We met for their engagement photos at the cutest, historic grounds nestled in the outskirts of Oakland, Michigan. Emma Rose and Bryce love history and beautiful structures with a story, so Cranberry Lake Farm was a perfect fit. I love that we had the opportunity to meet in person before their wedding day. It is so valuable to me as a photographer, I could have talked with them all evening!
Emma Rose and Bryce met through a mutual friend and were close friends for a year before they dated. Over that year, their intentional friendship developed into a dating relationship where they felt the Lord calling them to marriage. Bryce proposed to Emma Rose with the most beautiful sapphire ring, it is stunningly unique and unlike anything I have seen! Emma Rose told Bryce that she wanted something different than a classic diamond and left the rest up to him! You will see below that Bryce did an amazing job with his selection, he has a great eye and it is the perfect fit for Emma Rose’s personality.
Emma Rose and Bryce are so grounded in their faith, with wisdom far beyond their years. I was so inspired by how serious they are taking the commitment of marriage and how their faith matters most over anything else. Emma Rose has such a lovely, calming presence about her along with a sparkle for adventure in her eye. Her heart for ministry and service is amazing and I know she will do incredible things for others, she has already! Bryce is such a genuine and caring man who has nothing but respect and admiration for his beautiful bride-to-be! He looks at Emma Rose in such a loving way and you can how much he cherishes her, it is beautiful!
Enjoy some of my favorites from their session, we lucked out with the most amazing light! During the session, we all said that the light was straight out of the movie, Pride and Prejudice! Emma Rose and Bryce, thank you for having me along for your wedding photo journey, I cannot wait to capture your wedding day this coming winter! It will be the most beautiful day!
