There is something so magical about this time of year – holiday decorations, lights at every turn, and a chill in the air that makes people want to snuggle in close. We spent an afternoon getting to know Doug and Cindy as we explored downtown Howell, MI, and found some of those cozy corners of the city.
As a photographer, I love being able to capture sweet memories for my couples – But it is truly the couples who make the photos come alive as their love shines through. Just look at the way Cindy’s eyes light up when she looks at her husband to be —
Doug and Cindy met at Eastern Michigan University in the Dietetics program, and have been together for four years. When I asked Doug why he wanted to marry Cindy, he told me:
“Cindy is the first person that I’ve dated that really challenges me. She pushes me to be a better person, and makes life more interesting.”
And Cindy replied:
“Our personalities compliment each other. I tend to be a high-stress person and Doug is low stress, and we balance each other out. He inspires confidence in me, and even encouraged me to go back to school to become a PA.”
These two are nothing short of a perfectly balanced couple. Their love is clear to anyone they meet, and their friends have expressed pure happiness for them as they get ready to take this next step in marriage.
Doug and Cindy, we are honored to be part of this special season in your lives. We look forward to celebrating with you on your wedding day in June!
