Valentine’s Day in Grand Rapids this year was classic: cold and snowy. In the week leading up to Lindsay and Aaron’s session, Grant and I were a bit apprehensive about having a muddy field to work with, but the cold front came just in time. We woke up that morning to a beautiful blanket of snow covering everything. It was a perfect, romantic winter engagement session.
From the snowy farmland we warmed up in our cars and drove downtown for some shots by the ice rink in Rosa Parks Circle.
We ended the session in the lower level of the Amway Grand Plaza, where Aaron proposed to Lindsay. He had arranged for a string quartet to play outside, but bad weather forced them indoors near this stone waterfall. The thought that went into the proposal was so sweet, and it was fun to do some portraits in a place that was so special to them.
Lindsay and Aaron, thanks again for spending your Valentine’s Day with us! We really enjoyed getting to know you more as we visited places that are important to both of you. We’re looking forward to the wedding in August!
