Bay City Engagement Session
This Bay City engagement session was taken in every Mid-Michigan wedding photographer’s favorite season! In downtown Bay City, I found the perfect backdrop for fall engagement photos- a wall with colored leaves of the wild vine.
Aileen & John
To begin with, Aileen and John were so pleasant to work with the whole time! In fact, this might be one of my favorite Bay City engagement sessions! The reason is that I absolutely love how much John makes Aileen laugh (like A LOT). They enjoyed being in each other’s presence and everything felt so effortless and authentic.
Coffee Shop Engagement
Before every engagement session, I would ask my couples to complete an Engagement Session Questionnaire. It allows me to get to know them better. Most importantly, it helps me to create a one-of-a-kind and meaningful engagement session experience for each couple. It turns out that Harless + Hugh Coffee is their favorite spot to spend time on the weekends. As you can see, these warm, artistic and fun-loving coffee shop engagement photos are so Aileen-and-John!
For coffee lovers, if you happen to be around the area, don’t forget to stop by and grab some coffee to brighten your day! You will definitely fall in love with their modern, organic and minimalistic decor around the cozy open space.
Another thing that I love about photographing in downtown Bay City is the variety of colorful walls! Everywhere you go is a vibrant and interesting backdrop for creative images. Pick one that coordinates the couple’s outfit and style.
Kind Words From The Couple
“Chinling took our engagement photos this past fall. I have never had professional photos taken before so I was a little nervous it would be awkward. In reality, we had so much fun and our photos turned out beautifully! Chinling is such a talented photographer and makes you feel at ease throughout the shoot. She is clearly a people person with a great sense of humor and a good eye. I would recommend her to anyone!” -Aileen A.
