~Kaley & DJ~

Kaley contacted me last winter about shooting engagement photos for her and her fiance, DJ.  We had big plans of shooting the couple ice skating together on a frozen pond...how romantic!!  I was so excited because I knew we could have a lot of fun with it.  Well, Michigan weather foiled our plan, as we had an unseasonable warm snap.  We would have been swimming in that pond rather than skating on top of it.

So, we decided to postpone the shoot until things warmed up and things got a little greener outside.  Of course, the day of our rescheduled shoot, it was cold and drizzly.  Thank you once again, Michigan weather.

Eventually, all the planets aligned, and we were finally able to get together and shoot some engagement pictures!!  We met at Stoney Creek Metro Park, and it was a beautiful day (when Michigan weather cooperates, it sure can be wonderful).

Kaley & DJ were so great to work with...they were up for anything!  And while we were unable to use the original ice skating idea, we were still able to do some fun and unique things with their session.  Not to mention, we captured some fantastic images of this truly beautiful couple!    

DJ + Kaley

i just adored kaley's outfit and accessories.  she has such a great sense of style.  in fact,
kaley is the founder of what to wear & how to wear it, a fashion blog helping us all find our inner fashionista!
of course, DJ was looking very stylish as well.  :)

who doesn't love balloons?!

* the bling *

remember when i said they were up for anything??  HA!
there is a story behind this...you see, kaley & dj first met at a "mustache bash."

for those of you who have never heard of a mustache bash, this is a party where the guys
grow out their facial hair beforehand, and then shave it into funny mustaches for the party.
we thought it would be hilarious to incorporate this into their engagement photos.  :)
i love how completely serious they are in this photo, despite the crazy 'staches on their faces.

now for some individual shots.  the handsome DJ...

...and the lovely Kaley.


Kaley & DJ will be having a destination wedding in 2011!!  Congrats to you both on your engagement, and best wishes on your upcoming wedding!!
