Eric and Kayla were definitely the most joyfilled couple ever! Each one was BEAMING at every moment of the day. At one point I was asking them to both do a more serious face and it lasted like a half second before the burst out laughing.
This was my first wedding at the new Tabor Hill venue and oh my goodness… it’s gorgeous!
While this wedding was SO EASY because everyone was so happy, it was CHALLENGING because it was 30 something degrees. Kayla didn’t want to bring her ceremony inside (which I 100% approve of). I would have done the same thing! However it literally hailed on us during the ceremony! created some epic pictures and memories, but challenging as I tried to keep my lenses clean and dry! I will never forget this amazing day. I love when brides and grooms are this in-love and I love when they are just there to have the best of time with their best of friends.

It was so fun shooting a Grand Rapids wedding. Grand Rapids isn’t that far from me, but I tend to book weddings mostly in my tiny corner of Michigan. Luke and McKenzies wedding was at Saint Andrews Cathedral and reception at Thousand Oaks Golf club. Their whole family and friends were high energy and full of love. What a beautiful day it was!

I’ve been watching photographer promo videos on Youtube for over a year now. I got tired of just watching and I sent an email off to an old friend. Josh Spear gladly accepted my request to create my own promotional video. After a vision meeting, we came up with a great plan. The August night of the shoot final arrived and it was windy, overcast and there was a chill in the air.
To be honest, I was disappointed that I wouldn’t get that sunny glory I always dream of for photos. But we couldn’t really reschedule at that point. We started at Greenbush and the clouds continued. We headed to the dunes next. We hiked the backside of the dune and the very second we got to the peak THE SUN CAME TO GREET US! Josh and I looked at each other and both BEAMED. It was every visual artist’s dream. That warm glow stayed and the night finished with a soft, pastel pink sunset. To say it was a dream would be an understatement.
A HUGE THANK YOU to Josh for helping me fulfill a dream of mine.

It's taken me way too long to blog this gorgeous 12 Corners Vineyard wedding. Hannah & Abdullah were the sweetest, most genuine, beautiful couple! And I'm always so pleased to work alongside 1928 Planning Co. They make weddings smooth and seamless! Read More
As you might have read in my previous post, it poured on Chris and Flory's wedding day. Chris had proposed to Flory on Silver Beach overlooking the pier. And it has been a very special place for them for a long time! Beach pictures were so important to them and they didn't get to have those on their wedding day. I was feeling quite empathetic because if it had rained on my wedding day, I would have been devastated! I quickly offered to do a quick make up session so they could have their dream beach pictures. So this is our post wedding session, we had a blast! Read More
I have never met such troopers! Chris & Flory were in good spirits the whole day despite the fact that their wedding day came with lots of rain and freezing cold temperatures. Getting married in April is risky business in Michigan. They didn't get the Silver Beach pictures they were hoping for, but the rain let up just enough to give us a small window for outdoor pictures. I loved getting to know these two over the last year. WHAT A BEAUTIFUL COUPLE! Inside and out. SERIOUSLY. There was so much love every where they went. Read More
