Daniel & McKenzie | Armada Valentine’s Day Couple Session

This February I decided to do a giveaway where one lucky couple got to win a Valentine’s Day couple session with me! I partnered up with a local makeup artist, Shelly, who owns Bulletproof Makeup Artistry. I also received fresh chocolate-covered strawberries from Becky’s Baked Bootique that the couple could enjoy during the shoot. The winners were Daniel and McKenzie Luker. I was so excited for them to participate in this fun, festive shoot!

We held the photo shoot at Blake’s Orchard and Cider Mill in Armada. It was the perfect spot for this Valentine’s Day couple session! There were so many beautiful spots at Blake’s, this cider mill is always decorated the best! Before the shoot, McKenzie got her makeup done by Shelly, and I was able to capture some photos of the process. Shelly has been doing makeup professionally for 9 years now, and she loves helping women feel beautiful for their special events. She decided to do a soft glam look on McKenzie, and she looked stunning!

We then made our way over to Blake’s to meet up with McKenzie’s husband Daniel. They have been married for three years, and they are such a cute couple! We had so much fun shooting at this cider mill, we even opened a bottle of sparkling cider for a little extra excitement! We then made our way inside and enjoyed the most delightful soft pretzel appetizer and soups at Blake’s Tasting Room. I highly recommend going to Blake’s to experience a fun and romantic date night! I hope you all enjoy these sweet and charming Valentine’s Day photos!
