Chelsea + Jesse | Engagement September 7th, 2017

I have a seasonal campsite, and that's where I know Randy...my neighbor!

Well...he happens to know Chelsea who happens to know Jesse...

See where I'm going with this!? haha

That is how I was introduced to Chelsea, who was about to have major surgery.

There was just something about her, as the weeks went by...

I made sure to check in with her every once in a while like we were old friends!

I love doing that though! I want my brides to feel special, appreciated, and well cared for!

I know if I were a bride, I would want that too! <3

Weeks and even months go by...we're still chatting and she is healing...

Both her and Jesse decide to book with me!!!!

(GAAAAH....Secretly does happy dance!! Okay....fine I think the neighbors saw me!!!)

We met at a Panera one day and talked about their love for music, how they value the photos and video the most, and how they are throwing one helluva party!

(Cause...oh yeah...they also booked my A-MAZING videographer friend Brandon Reeves)

with Escovision

Originally, we had planned to meet at Belle Isle and roam for their engagement session, but it was crazy windy, and raining (Pre-Irma) so we scratched that idea and waited in the car.

Scratching our heads, all of us frantically on Google looking for something that would fit their personality, Jesse comes up with Trappers Alley in Greektown...which is like DUH! So perfect, because every time they happen to be in Detroit, they stop here, get food and go to a little bakery!!

Bella is Jesse's daughter, and I love that she came along with us as well. We were like best friends by the time we all crammed into their car waiting for the rain to chill out! Wait till you see the love Chelsea has for Bella. Like no joke, looking at those photos, tears came to my eyes. Just the way she grips Chelsea, you can see all the love she has for her! I LOVE their close bond, and you can tell Chelsea is going to be the most PERFECT Mom, I just know it!!

I cannot wait for their wedding in March! I'm so ready to see how this party turns out!
