On location at The Law Quad in Ann Arbor Michigan Alora Rachelle Photography captured this gorgeous engagement shoot. Ashleigh and Charles looked like naturals in front of the camera, you would never know it was their first time in front of the camera together. The shoot took place at the University of Michigan with its beautiful gothic-style buildings not to be outdone by the picturesque pine trees and colorful leaves. But the love between the couple is what truly shines in these photos. Take a look and the undeniable tenderness these two share and tell us if you don't get pulled into their gentle chemistry.
How He Asked
On the night Charles proposed Ashleigh was working late. He decided to cook dinner to set the proposal atmosphere. He used their daughter, Layla, to propose by dressing her in a onesie asking will you marry us. Ashleigh came home and walked over and picked up Layla and started to read her onesie. Not long after Charles was on his knee waiting with a gorgeous ring. Ahh swoon. Too romantic right? This was a dream engagement waiting to happen.
They were a little nervous to take engagement photos because they have never been photographed together. You can't tell because my approach to photography is so natural. I like to shoot a couple so that you can't help but fall in love with them as they are. It was important to me that we have fun. It makes me so happy to hear my clients say "Oh it's over already? This was so much fun." When that happens I know that I have officially done my job and we have become friends.
