Jordan + Claire // The Arb, Ann Arbor Engagement Session

With Jordan + Claire's wedding weekend coming up, I thought it would be fun to feature some of their engagement session photos up on the blog today. I met Claire early last year, when I photographed her brother and sister-in-laws Detroit wedding. She was a bridesmaid in their wedding, and we instantly connected. I can't tell you how thrilled I was when she contacted me a few months later, newly engaged, and ready to start planning her own wedding! 

I met up with Jordan + Claire on a summer morning, at Nichols Arboretum, the location of their first date. Being that this spot was sentimental to them both, I thought it would be the perfect location for their session. All the while it was fun reminiscing about their first date, and they shared stories of their adventure in The Arb. Afterwards we strolled through some their favorite spots in Ann Arbor, around U of M's campus, which is also sentimental, to Claire and her family especially. I'm so looking forward to their wedding day, and capturing even more of Claire's infectious laugh and smile, that Jordan brings out in her in such a perfect way. They are the sweetest couple, and I know their wedding day will be just as amazing. Stay tuned to my facebook page to catch their sneak preview following the wedding. Enjoy! :)

 

Lindsey + Ron // An Ann Arbor, Michigan Fall Engagement Session

It's happening. The weather has cooled down considerably and fall is in the air! Even though it's not officially fall yet, Mother Nature has her own set of plans, and the colors are changing faster than ever! Every year around this time, I get nostalgic. Out of no where I start to remember all of the fall sessions I had the year prior, and start to anticipate the sessions coming in. I met with Lindsey + Ron on a beautiful, fall day in Ann Arbor last year. Everything about that day was perfect. The weather, the temperature, the colors were all on point. There's something truly magical about this time of year here in Michigan. Engagement sessions are great, because it allows me to really get to know my couples, and vice versa. After being together for many years, they're both right where they want to be, and have hit this huge milestone in their lives. Be sure to scroll through for a glimpse at Lindsey's humor about it. ;)

Since this weekend is their wedding weekend, and honestly, who would have thought we would have this much fall color already, I thought it only fitting to showcase their engagement session. Stay tuned to my facebook page Lia Giannotti Photography, to check out their wedding sneak preview coming soon! Happy early fall everyone! <3
