Megan and Steve have the sweetest ring origin story I’ve ever heard. Steve custom designed Megan’s engagement ring with a blue stone that came from a ring grandmother gave her in high school. Surrounding the blue stone, are gems from Megan’s mother’s wedding ring. If that’s not the sweetest thing you’ve ever heard then I don’t know what is! Not only was Megan’s ring so thoughtfully designed by Steve, but Megan also had their photo prop custom made! It is the coordinates of their first date.
While Megan and Steve are so adorable and thoughtful with each other, they are also so much fun to be around. They are sassy, a little bit sarcastic, and totally match my own sense of humor. I had such a blast with them on this shoot and their location choice ended up being exactly what they wanted. Rochester Hills Municipal Park has an array of spots within it that are the perfect blend of nature and greenery without being in the middle of nowhere. Truly the best location ever for this charming picnic engagement.
Quick PSA to all future brides: you don’t need neutral colored nails for your engagement photoshoot! When Megan was getting a manicure before the shoot, she picked out a super cute and bright pink nail polish. Her technician told her she should really choose something more neutral or else the photographer would hate her! I was cracking up when she told me this story and wanted to publicly let everyone know if bright pink is what you want, then you get it girl! Let your personality shine!
Cheers to Megan and Steve! Can’t wait to see you two get married!
