I am so excited to show you our engagement photos! We had such blast with our photographer Cassie from Holen Photography!
We had such a hard time figuring out where to take them because I wanted to avoid any places we got our senior photos done.
Our hometown is really close to Lake Michigan, so we decided to go there! The water along with the park was perfect. Our favorite color is blue, so everything just fit together great.
I got this dress last year on super-clearance from Loft. It was before we got engaged, but I really loved it and thought it would be great for the next summer. Great thinking on my part right?
I feel like kissing photos are kind of awkward, but this was the really good one.
This dress has blue undertones so my little sister helped us pick out a shirt for Matt. She was really helpful, and I think our outfits look great together!
We had lots of fun taking these photos as you can see!
Cassie made us feel so comfortable! She had the best pose ideas, and we are having a hard time picking one for our save the dates.
I couldn’t be happier to be marrying this amazing man. He and I may have our struggles like any relationship, but he’s my best friend. I’d rather be having hard times with him than having it super easy going with someone else.
Isn’t my ring gorgeous? Matt did such a great job picking out the ring, and Cassie did an amazing job photographing it!

If you’re in Wisconsin or Northern Illinois, check Cassie out! We’re getting married next October, and Cassie has been such a great help. I haven’t started the day of coordination, but she’s already had great ideas that have made me less stressed out.
Tips for Engagement Photos
- Pick outfits that are comfortable: You don’t have to look super dressed up if you don’t want to, and you should be comfortable taking them!
- Pick a place that either has meaning or that you might go yourself: We weren’t sure where to go, but figured that we had lived by Lake Michigan our whole lives so why not go there?
- You don’t need a theme: Matt and I do a lot of things together, but we honestly didn’t put a lot of thought into our photos. But Matt and I like to wing things sometimes, and it turned out great.
- Have fun: Don’t put a lot of pressure on this photo shoot. It’s about you and your partner’s love. It’s not about getting the perfect shot for a magazine, rather something that shows how in love you are!
This is a weird question, but how interested in a love story/ engagement story post are you?
