Portrait session with Amanda

Amanda contacted us about doing a session so that she could give pictures to her boyfriend Adam which happened to be a good friend of mine!

Adam moved up to Grand Rapids so I just assumed she lived up there and said I wouldn’t mind coming up to do the session there so she wouldn’t have to drive and because GR has some great places to shoot…

She ended up being from kalamazoo, so I felt kind of stupid for making her drive all the way up there but it was worth it =)

We started over on Hall street so if you recognize this dumpster, sorry for invading your turf! =)

Found this awesomely unstable bridge and after a verbal liability agreement we got a couple great shots!
