Jennifer & Chuck Engagement

posted on: April 5, 2006

Aside from looking like supermodels, this is one amazing couple. Jennifer & Chuck hired me before meeting face-to-face because we live on opposite sides of the state, so we decided to combine our first meeting and engagement session all into one. Little did I know how close to them I would feel by the end of the day. I had ambitions to shoot early in the morning before they went to church but there were a lot of natural factors against us like really blinding sun, harsh wind, and biting cold. I suggested we meet at the Starbucks in Downtown Rochester and coincidentally, that happened to be one of the places that Jennifer & Chuck used to frequent when they lived in the area! You can tell the first shot above was from the cafe because of the signature hanging lights. I'd like to thank the artist who created the mural on the wall, because it made an awesome backdrop.

They wanted to show me the church where they were getting married, which happened to be the church that Chuck's family has attended for generations, yet no one from his family had been married there yet- he would be the first. The Historic Trinity Lutheran was even more beautiful on the inside than it's towering exterior. I had never been to a Lutheran service before, so it took me a while to get the hang of things, but Jennifer got to hear me sing a few hymns when I was able to keep up! It's been a long time since I've been sitting in the congregation of a church! Usually I'm in the choir loft. ;-)

After church we decided to grab a bite to eat in Greektown- since they don't get a whole lot of Greek food on their side of the state! With full tummies and a bit of coffee to warm us up before braving the cold again, we were able to grab some of the best shots of the day downtown. I have to give a big thank you to Chuck who was watching my back and my camera bag while suspicious characters were snooping around. Without getting too personal, let me just say that Jennifer & Chuck are amazing people with so much depth and emotion.. I get teary just thinking about all of the wonderful and tragic memories they shared with me. I can't wait for their wedding day- it will be amazing.

  1. Hi Anne! Found your blog through OSP. Amazing pictures! Loved the slideshow! We're practically neighbors. OK, maybe not right next door (I'm in Grand Rapids area), but it's nice to find other Michiganders on OSP.
