Brittany + Matt | Downtown Marquette Engagement

It may be cliché, but there is NO doubt that the love of these two incredible human beings is contagious. Throughout our session, they couldn’t keep their hands – or lips – off of each other! It was so clear to see how very deeply and honestly they care for each other, and how true and unique their love story is.

One thing that spoke to me during our time together was Matt’s adoration for his gorgeous and kind fiancé Brittany. Though she told him she wasn’t interested in dating him many years ago and seemingly moved on, he remained committed to the thought of spending his life with her by his side. When the time was right, they found each other again and quickly realized that their relationship was meant to be. As he proudly put it with the most genuine smile, “My long-game is strong.” I guess it’s true for these two that the best things in life are worth waiting for.

Brittany and Matt admitted to me that they like to do things a little differently. Their Halloween-themed wedding will feature a color palette of black, deep burgundy and gold, and will highlight their “rocker” personalities. We sought to make their engagement session fit that mold, going for an industrial feel in Downtown Marquette.

It was a joy to photograph them and spend a gorgeous UP afternoon together. The final images make me SO excited to join them in October as they celebrate their wedding.
