Beth + Ray | Lake Michigan Sunset Engagement Shoot | New Buffalo, MI

May 31, 2023

Breaking the normal routine is one of the healthiest things one can do in this current day. So many of us live lives that are so repetitive that we become unaware of how our days become weeks and our weeks become years, only to suddenly wake up one day to realize the rut we find ourselves in. But every once a while, something or someone comes along that shakes up the status quo and brings something unique or special back into our lives. Beth and Ray’s sunset engagement shoot was that moment for us, and we are excited to share it with you as well!

From their story of meeting years earlier, to a thrill-packed proposal, we spent the evening learning” the story of Beth and Ray.” By the end of the evening, we couldn’t help but notice that these two just “work” in a way that some people only dream of. Combine their sweet spirits with the fun-loving energy that their dog, “Ralph” brought to the evening, and this session felt like it had leapt out of the screen of a hallmark movie. Although their wedding will be taking place in Virginia, Beth and Ray both felt that the beaches of Southwest Michigan were the perfect place for their engagement shoot as the route between Chicago and Michigan was a well-worn path for their family’s trips.

Beth and Ray, it was such a fun evening getting to know you and the story of how you two came together! We so often already know all of these fun little stories by the time we meet our couples in person, but hearing it firsthand in person was such a welcome change to the “normal” for us. Your Virginia wedding is going to be utterly stunning, and we are honored to have been a part of your journey towards becoming husband and wife!

All our best!
