Troy and Chelsea rock. These two are so much fun and it’s completely obvious that they are perfect for each other. Chelsea is absolutely beautiful, with a personality to match. She’s reminds me of myself: a huge outgoing goofball. Troy on the other hand reminds me of Paul, my hubby. Paul is the logical to my impulsive. Troy and Chelsea are like that. Which means that I totally get them!

They decided to photograph their engagement session at Van Hoosen Farm, in Rochester, Michigan. If you haven’t been there before, it’s a gorgeous location, complete with a museum and some neat buildings from the 1800’s. Here’s a description of the farm from the Van Hoosen website:

The Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm is a complex of historical buildings that represents an early Midwestern settlement. Located in Stoney Creek Village, the Van Hoosen Farm represents five generations of the Taylor-Van Hoosen families and the lives of these family members. Your visit allows you to tour the 1840 Van Hoosen Farmhouse, 1850 Red House, 1927 Dairy Barn (adaptively reused to house exhibits, classrooms, videos and archives) and the 1848 Schoolhouse. In addition, the museum is surrounded by 16 acres of gardens and grounds, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

But back to Troy and Chelsea…We met up on Monday afternoon to photograph their engagement session. The weather was perfect and Troy and Chelsea were naturals. We photographed them all around Van Hoosen Farm and made sure to get the barn picture that Chelsea had envisioned, along with a bunch more that we just came up with on the fly. I’ll say congratulations to them now, seeing as how they just got married over the weekend at Goodells County Park  (yeah, they had their e-session a month before their wedding), but that blog post is for another day. All I can say is that Chelsea looked absolutely stunning and Troy looked so handsome!
