Taylor + Amanda’s Surprise Proposal – Old Barn Farm – Centreville, MI

November 1, 2019

Some thoughts from Tina… Surprise Proposal sessions are all about capturing the moment in the greatest degree of authenticity possible. It is organic and 90-95 percent unposed. They are meant to be the unfolding of events as they transpire, telling the unique story of two people who love one another. They are a token of […]

True to most Northern Indiana winter photography sessions, the temps were low, the breeze was blowing, and the snow was freely falling. It was beautiful. The fresh blanket of white crunched beneath […]
