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
There was an insane amount of joy overflowing the whole day of Brian + Savannah’s wedding at Blissful Barn in Three Oaks, Michigan. Everything was so beautiful despite the spurts of rain and tornado warnings!

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.

I haven’t done anything like this personal on my website before, but I’ve read that if your bucket list public or on display you are more likely to achieve your goals. I sat down recently to write down my New Year’s resolutions, but I ended up creating a 30 Before 30 Bucket List. Seeing that I have just over a year and half to accomplish these things, I tried to keep them relatively attainable both budget wise and timeline wise. I’m pairing them with personal pictures from our east coast road trip because, ya know, I’m a photographer.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!

Don + Taylor hired me to photograph their small ceremony on the beach along with their wedding portraits. Doing these little weddings is so refreshing and I just love getting to be a part of them.Read More
