Kalamazoo Engagement Photography | Alexa and Nate

I really enjoy getting to know each couple, their story and all the little details. When we were planning Alexa and Nate’s shoot, they had a fabulous location selected at Kirklin Farms in Kalamazoo. We were able to cruise around on our little golf cart (still filled with vegetables and gardening tools), set up a sweet picnic in the field and enjoy some apple pie moonshine!! Yes. Apple Pie Moonshine!

Having a little picnic in the field with a few of their favorite drinks. Alexa’s dad is in the process of starting his own moonshine distillery, JVA Distillery. This concoction is Apple Pie Moonshine, absolutely delish!!┬áNate’s grandmother’s ring has been given to Alexa as her engagement ring, his grandparents met in Japan during the Korean War. The blanket and the picnic basket were also items that once belonged to their grandparents, I just love how all these little details came together. It was a really special session.
