I didn’t meet Rob until our (SUPER FREEZING COLD) engagement session just before this past Christmas, but it didn’t take long to see how wonderful these two are for each other. He brings a strong and peaceful presence to her bubbly joy, and those things combined are perfect. And it’s quite apparent how crazy they are for each other, as you’ll see...

Future brides and grooms of the world: if it rains on your wedding day, and your photographer asks if you’d like to go adventure out in anyway, say yes and make them as thrilled as Nate&Sara made us! Also – umbrellas and romance in the rain? Can’t. Be. Beat.

These two shared such a lovely and peaceful day celebrating their marriage...

The first moment I pointed my camera at these two for our engagement session (a weirdly cold May day – thanks, Michigan ;)), I was just floored by their love and admiration for each other. The images below will speak more than my words could ever could about this fact, so I’ll just let you see for yourself. It’s beautiful. And I basically cried a few...

...despite the energy of Grand Haven summer, I really think the epicenter of fun and celebration was happening with these two and their wedding day. Holy smokes, so much laughter. Rachel was smiling (and squealing with joy) from the moment she arrived at the church, and it didn’t subside even a little. Sean and his (awesome) groomsmen arrived and quickly jumped...

As great at the weather, the campus, and the perfectly lush gardens they got married in were though, what made the day special to us were these two people. I went to high school with Erin, and there's just something so amazing about seeing an old friend who you've always thought was the bees knees so darn happy. Matt – the way you look at Erin is priceless...

Today, you get the total joy of peeking into Chris&Heidi’s wonderful wedding day. Boy oh boy, they are really something. I’ve known Heidi for a while now, and though, until recently, we didn’t know each other that well, I have always been touched by her genuine spirit and loving personality. So when she emailed me with some seriously kind words...

We just had the best time with Sean&Rachel. As if it’s not obvious from these photos, we laughed basically 90% of our time together. These two have an infectious energy (and overall goofiness!) about them. It’s absolutely the best. They make it so easy to be around them – there’s just no possible way to not smile and laugh. So at the end of...

Meet Matt&Michele! Their wedding will be ending our wedding season this year, and I think it will be just perfect. Before this session we had only Skyped, and you really wouldn’t have guessed it. They were so delightfully comfortable with my camera alllll up in their space, and we laughed like old friends. :) Honestly, I think it has everything to do with how...

This beautiful wedding I get to share with you all today marks our very first wedding of the 2014 wedding season. And I have to tell you, I can’t imagine a better wedding to start the year with. Ceremony held at the incredible St. Clement Parish, followed by the brunch to end all brunches at the Dunlays On Clark Wine Bar just up the road – all in the...

It’s not too often I get to photograph just one person for an entire session, but I’ve gotta tell ya – I love it. There’s something really special about getting to dedicate a large portion of time to focus on capturing one person. To specifically set out to tell of what makes them special – their features, their quirks, their passions, just...

This wedding marked the end of our 2013 wedding season – and what a wild and beautiful ride it was. We learned so much. Sometimes, the learning was overwhelming. Often, I wanted to did cry my eyes out, while Drew acted as my rock. Owning a business is far more difficult that I even imagined, and when you hold it all pretty personally – even harder...

In honor of this crazy gorgeous season, how about a couple people who make it even better looking’? Eh? :) Nate&Sara will be getting married next July, and I fully expect their wedding day to be filled with even more joy and laugher than this session. Together, their silliness and joy is absolutely contagious. I was smiling for at least the next hour straight...
