Winter Engagement Session – Grand Haven’s Rosy Mound Park
We tried a few dates for this engagement photo session in Grand Haven’s Rosy Mound Nature Preserve and needed to postpone a couple of times. Winter photo sessions are nice but if it’s -7 out, no one is going to be smiling for long.
So on one of the final few days where it still looked like winter, we met a couple of hours before sunset and gave it a go. The sun was shining beautifully and the temps were around 30 degrees. It was simply perfect and these two were great sports about our winter trek. If you have ever been to Rosy Mound you know how beautiful it is. There are a few trails on the flat areas, but mostly there is an enormous amount of steps that take you up and over a dune to get to the shore of Lake Michigan.
We started out doing some classic portraits in the flat areas and then we started our journey to the shore. We got there just was the sun was setting and were able to capture a beautiful silhouette of the loving couple. Thank you both for allowing me the pleasure of capturing some of the love you share. I look forward to your wedding in June!
