Kalamazoo Engagement Photography | Bre and Luke

Luke and Bre met through mutual friends. After a night of conversation and a few beers at a local pub, Bre being the nice girl she is offered to drive Luke and his friend home since they lived along the way. As they pulled up to the house Luke’s friend climbed out of the car leaving Bre and Luke alone for a moment. Luke thanked Bre for the ride home, shook her hand and in what was a moment of courage pulled her in and stole a kiss.

I admit, when they shared their story I couldn’t help but laugh, especially because Luke is a pretty funny guy. On the drive home I couldn’t help but think of the movie “We Bought a Zoo” in the movie Benjamin Mee says “Sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it.” So Luke, kudos to you because those twenty seconds snagged you a pretty amazing girl!

I have known Bre for years, she is kind, compassionate to others and beautiful inside-out. It makes me so happy to see how Luke cares for Bre and I am so happy to be capturing their wedding this summer.
