Jan & Michaela in Love & Arrest in America

I couldn’t be happier for this couple who came to visit us ALL THE WAY FROM GERMANY for their engagement shoot! We are also ecstatic to be attending and photographing their wedding in Germany. Jan & Michaela are both police officers in Dusseldorf Germany and met through their department, now they are to be wed on June 20th, 2015 in Alfhausen & Ibbenburen. My husband Greg met Jan when they were in high school and he was in Germany for an exchange program, since then Greg had gone back a few times and Jan continues to come to the United States because their police departments have partnerships with New Ulm, Minnesota’s police department…what a small world!!! Thank you both for giving me this amazing opportunity and being such a fun couple to capture!!! We simply cannot wait for June!!!
