Christy and Kevin’s fall Stony Creek engagement session happened on truly the perfect day in the park! The leaves were vibrant, the weather perfect, and the good spots weren’t too busy yet because of our timing!
Christy and Kevin brought their sweet pup to start the session. I adore having dogs at sessions and usually like to start with them so they can get their 15 minutes of fame and then go on a walk or go home.
Fall Stony Creek engagement session is really popular – there are so many spots in the park you can use and it gives one of the best fall vibes in the metro area. Christy and Kevin really wanted to take advantage of the colors and vibe for their engagement session. I especially loved how they brought along some champagne for a splash and a toast. You are totally always welcome to do that too – I’ll even coach you through how to open and spray it.

I absolutely love Deanna and Amanda’s fall Nichol’s Arboretum engagement session. These two are so full of joy! Despite having a little rain during their session, these two trusted me and we got the session in anyways!
Nichol’s Arboretum is a very large park in Ann Arbor, but there’s great spots right near the parking lot, just past the peony garden. There are some lovely pines there as well as great fall color.
A great place to pair with a fall Nichol’s Arboretum engagement session is Nickel’s Arcade, especially if there’s some type of rain since it’s covered. This is what we did for Amanda and Deanna’s session, which helped us skirt the rain a bit as well.
Amanda and Deanna are both nurses, which is how they met. They are so much fun to be around and just so kinda and welcoming. Not to mention just SO EASY to photograph! The laughs and joy are all 100% genuine which is how I like it.

I have so much I could say about Kirstin and Mike’s fall Gallup Park engagement session. Firstly, these two are just so so so much fun. We laughed SO much at this engagement session. I can totally see why they are together and why I want to hang out with them all the time.
Gallup Park engagement sessions are just some of my favorite in Ann Arbor. I know everyone goes for the Arb and that’s fine, but I prefer not to hike it in so much. I love the Arb, it’s great but for those of us who want to spend more time photographing and talking and less time hiking, a Gallup Park engagement session is where it’s at. It’s also less busy than the Arb and has this little nature area that I love to use too.
Kirstin and Mike nailed the joy of an engagement session. Truly exuberant. 11/10 would recommend not taking yourself or the session too seriously and just having a blast. The photos will take care of themselves.

Last September, I had the most perfect golden hour Stony Creek Metropark engagement session with Kylie and Jared – and their pup Brody!
I always encourage couples to bring their pups (if they wish) because they’re family. I know that when we got engagement – and wedding – photos, I really regretted not including our dog Nora. I know it can be super stressful to bring a fury friend, but I promise I’ll send you some great tips to make it a successful session. There hasn’t been a dog I haven’t gotten to cooperate for a few images.
Stony Creek Metropark is popular – for a reason! And I think once you scroll through these engagement photos, you’ll see why: literally the most perfect golden hour.
A lot of couples want a fall engagement session, but I’ll let you in on a little secret – late September is not fall but it’s usually the most gorgeous time to shoot. The weather hasn’t turn cold and rainy, all the greens are still kicking, and the sunsets are usually AH-MAZING. Don’t overlook September as a wonderful time for a session, y’all, especially for a perfect golden hour Stony Creek Metropark engagement.
Kylie and Jared met through mutual friends at a “Beer Olympics.” Sounds fun right? Jared offered Kylie some water and the rest is history. These foodies enjoy walking Brody, traveling, and spending time on the water. Their August 2022 wedding is going to be so much fun – I can’t wait to shoot their wedding!

Mike and Sarah’s fall Law Quad engagement session at the University of Michigan took place on what I think was the PERFECT fall day – not too warm and not too cold, with a lovely golden hour light.
Mike is a University of Michigan alum now and these two spent a lot of time around the campus during his time there so naturally they decided on using this gorgeous part of campus for their engagement session.
These two met in high school but didn’t start dating until college. Apparently they both liked each other way back when but didn’t put two and two together until later!
A fall Law Quad engagement session wouldn’t be complete without that perfect golden light tiptoeing across the buildings. The Law Quad is lovely in any season, but man, in the fall, campus just shines. It’s one of my favorite places to shoot at the University of Michigan, see this session as well. It’s popular for a reason!
For part two of our session, we went to Nichol’s Arborteum. Mike and Sarah enjoy hikes and hammocking, so naturally Nichol’s made sense. They took me to the far reaches of the arborteum and we ended our session in a lovely field of grass. I love Nichol’s Arborteum, but man it can be a hike back!
Can’t wait to share more of these two. Their fall wedding was just so GOOD!

I had the best time with Jalen and Maria at their golden hour Stony Creek engagement session. These two were truly so much fun – I laughed a lot which always makes my job so fun!
These two met working at Emagine Theaters and their first date was to a cider mill. They fell in love with Stony Creek engagement session photos online and actually found me that way! They felt it was the perfect place to document this chapter because they love nature walks – and movies, which makes sense based on where they met. We talked a lot about Hamilton during their session!
Golden hour Stony Creek engagement sessions are really popular, and for good reason. It’s really quite gorgeous in any season, including summer! The tall pine trees look perfect at just about any time of day and the open field is perfect for golden hour. It can get pretty busy with photographers on the weekend so I actually prefer to come during the week so as not to make my clients nervous with so many people around. You don’t believe how popular this spot is until you see all of the people with cameras around! See more Stony Creek engagement sessions here.
I’m so excited for Jalen and Maria’s wedding! I know it’s going to be such a fun event to be a part of.
