Mike & danielle

Mike and Danielle are seriously the sweetest couple and you could feel the love in the air throughout their entire session. Did I mention that they are also both therapists?? How cute!! When we were thinking on where to have their engagement session, the perfect place came to mind which were the Ledges at Grand Ledge and Fitzgerald Park in Lansing, Michigan.

It was such a beautiful fall day surrounded by all of the fall foliage. Throughout my sessions with couples, I will normally show what some of the photos are looking like on the back of my camera. It's always so interesting to see how my couples react to them. I will always remember how happy Mike was after seeing all the photos. Normally the guys don't care as much about the photos, but since Mike is already such a happy guy, seeing his reaction was priceless. It definitely made the session go even better because they KNEW they looked good after seeing a couple of photos.

Although this location is beautiful as is, I was mostly excited to take photos at the actual ledges in the park. However, my favorite photos ended up being on the dock with all of the fall foliage in the background. The photos came out so well and I couldn't have been more thrilled.

Mike and Danielle were such an amazing couple to be around and they were so kind. It makes me so incredibly grateful to meet so many new people and be able to work with such amazing couples.

Photos By Gayle does more than just take photos of people. Rather, it is capturing moments of LOVE and HAPPINESS. Singing to the skies, dancing in a field, smiles that hurt because they’re so big. There is nothing else I would rather be doing than photographing these unique details that make you and your significant other a couple.
