A Beach Engagement

October 24, 2012


This is one of my favorite photos from a recent engagement shoot along the shore of Lake Michigan near Manistee. This young man proposed to this beautiful young lady on this beach in northern Michigan at about 1:00 in the morning on St. Patrick’s Day this year. I imagine it was an odd sight for the local police officer who happened to be driving by at that time and who just had to stop and question the suspicious couple. Well, we revisited the “scene of the crime” one evening in late August, hoping to take advantage of one of Lake Michigan’s gorgeous sunsets. Unfortunately, it was a dreary rainy day. Fortunately, the rain stopped in time so I was able to do the shoot, but alas, no sunset pics. However, I must admit the gray skies turned out to be an awesome backdrop. This young couple was so much fun to work with and were willing to try anything I suggested, even getting “down and dirty” in the wet sand. Congratulations to Paul and Casey. Looking forward to photographing their wedding in May 2013!
