Ruth + Daniel | Engagement | Warren Dunes State Park | New Buffalo, MI

June 8, 2022

As the storm clouds rolled in and their wedding day quickly approached, the four of us looked over our calendars to figure out a back-up date for Ruth and Daniel’s engagement shoot. The beach had always been a major part of their life, and we were all determined to make their dream of a “beach engagement shoot” at Warren Dunes a reality. One evening in particular stood out as the perfect intersection of our schedules, and after a quick prayer that the rain would stay away, we finalized that evening as our last chance to get their engagement photos done before their wedding later on this month.

Ruth and Daniel are two of the most fun, laid-back people we have spent the evening with so far this year, to the point that if they were nervous about the rain, we couldn’t tell in the days leading us to their shoot. Thankfully, the skies were all clear, and Ruth and Daniel capitalized on the evening in every way possible. Their fun-loving personalities were the perfect contrast with their stunning outfits, and each photo made us feel like we were on a GQ shoot. However, our favorite part of the night by far was the laughter that we got to share with these two. Ruth and Daniel are truly enjoying every moment of being engaged, and we can tell that after they are married, the fun will have just begun for them!

Ruth and Daniel, you two are absolutely stunning! We couldn’t imagine a more fun-filled evening, which just makes us more excited for your wedding later this month! You two literally invite others into your fun with your smiles and we feel like we have known you for years. Enjoy the last few weeks of being engaged, because we will soon be laughing and celebrating with you at your wedding!

All our best!
