jen & jeff {engaged}

It's a rainy October day here in Michigan, but it was also a rainy October day a couple weeks ago when I shot Jen & Jeff's engagement session @ Calvin College. So, in honor of the rainy weather, and the two of them... I have a little rainy preview for you all!

Normally, I would reschedule on a rainy day. However, Jen and Jeff are currently in a long-distance engagement while Jeff works in Minnesota. So we had to coordinate a date when we were all in the same city! I actually quickly found out that Jeff was a longtime friend of Keith, whose wedding I was shooting the next day... which is why Jeff was in town! Perfect! (FYI... I'll be posting Meghan & Keith's wedding preview next week!). All three of us were willing to continue with the session, so instead of rescheduling, we pressed on!

Jen and Jeff were so wonderful!! The both of them just have contagious, happy personalities - and they are so in love! It was a joy trekking around the nature preserve with them! The trees were just starting to change color, so we tried to take advantage of that when we could. Jen confessed that she always wanted an autumn wedding, but since she also has a passion for teaching, she quickly realized that planning a fall wedding during the schoolyear would not be too possible. Instead, she planned fall engagement pictures and is planning a July wedding! Despite the rainy weather, the both of them were in great spirits and we were able to get some fun, loving shots!

Thanks for spending the cold, rainy evening with me, Jen & Jeff! You two were troopers and I hope you love how the pictures turned out! Best wishes in all the planning! I can't wait to see you both again! Enjoy the preview!

As we walked deeper into the woods, we ditched the umbrella and they braved the raindrops!

Bling bling. Her ring was beautiful! Jeff did an awesome job ;)

The rain paused for a bit to allow us to go out into the open area... and we were so excited about all the color we found!

Mmm... red berries, autumn leaves, and love... good combo for a picture :)
