parker+lindsay engagement {love.on.the.lakeshore}

i first met lindsay when she was a bridesmaid in a friend's wedding last winter. it was a beautiful february day in michigan with a wedding party that was kind enough to brave the cold for some outdoor shots. well...i have to say, for me it is a really special compliment when a former bridesmaid or groomsman in a wedding i shot asks me to be a part of their very own wedding. i was thrilled when lindsay first contacted me and it was great to hear how her and parker's love story has played out. parker just graduated from the naval academy...yeah, talk about awesome! and even though he didn't bring along a uniform for our engagement session, i could tell that this was a guy who could command a room. my hope was that by the end of our session, his smiles might start to come naturally - parker, you'll have to tell me if i succeeded, haha!

thanks for a great morning on the lakeshore my friends - trust me, this coming year will fly by! can't wait for your wedding day*
