I texted Amanda a couple hours before our scheduled session and told her it looked like it was going to be raining. I gave her the choice to reschedule or proceed with our scheduled time. She choose to keep the session even if it meant it might be raining. I love these types of brave and bold clients! Seriously the best. Well it rained… I mean poured for the first 20 minutes. The pictures don’t do the amount of rain justice. Then we decided to drive down to New Buffalo Beach. The clouds parted, the sun peaked through, a rainbow appeared. It was magical, beautiful and inspiring. Guys, great risk, great reward. The next day I found out a tornado had touched down during this storm about 45 minutes away from us in South Bend! So crazy! Enjoy these!Read More

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.

W + C were the easiest and sweetest couple I've photographed in a long time! In just the 45 minutes I spent with them I can see they are tender hearted and passionately in love!
Guy and Jamie's Texas wedding was incredible. We experienced tears, laughter, raindrops the size of Kentucky, rainbows and sunshine that burst through the moment the bride came down the aisle. These two people have hearts of gold. And I don't know if there are two people more happy to be together forever.
