One of the very first thoughts I had when we packed our gear away at the end of their ridiculous dance party celebration of a night (after contemplating how sore I would be the next day from full day of photography + dancing like a crazed woman) was, “How on earth am I gonna come up with the right words when I blog this day?!” Seriously. That is not a lie. I...

We met Michael&Alaina a few weekends ago for coffee at Lantern (duh, because obviously I’m obsessed) and a short photo session around town. We laughed, SO much, and I absolutely cannot wait for their wedding in just a few short weeks! They are a freakin’ dream to photograph. I mean, it’s not common you pick up your camera and your subjects are...

It’s up for debate since Drew and I haven’t chatted it over together, but I think it should go on record that this is some of, if not the, best work we’ve done yet. I am incredibly proud of these images. And you should know – it was these two people that we have to thank for this fact. They planned the most beautiful, meaning-filled day &ndash...

This day was a genuine riot from start to finish. Not only did these two (and their entire bridal party!) look as classy as it comes, they were relaxed, excited, and just flat out ready to celebrate. I loved watching them interact with each other all day. You can see how comfortable they are together, how much they respect and admire one another. Oh, and how much fun...

Today – I introduce you to our wonderful new friends Ed&Jacqui. I feel like I say this every time, but I want you all to know how much I mean it when I say – these two are seriously awesome. Outside of a couple short phone calls, and a chilly March engagement session, we really didn’t get the chance to know Ed&Jacqui a whole lot before their...

I’ve been so excited to share these photos with you all. I got an email from Kris not too long ago letting me know he’d like to surprise his bride of 3 years with a photo session together, and I squealed with excitement. Seriously. I did that. Like a teenager. You see – not only are they fabulously in love and dang good looking, they are very dear...

Of all the great things I could say about my time knowing this lady and calling her friend, one of the greatest would be that Christopher is the man she’s gonna call husband in just over a month :) You’ll see it in these pictures… he adores her. They are truly and completely perfect for each other. High school sweethearts, at that. I cannot wait to...

Well, we’re moving right onto our next August wedding today, and I have been itching to share some of these images with you since the moment they were captured! It was just one of those days where several images made me do a happy dance on spot because I just knew they were gonna be special.

And these two. Alex&Kate. They are truly special. Well before even their engagement they dealt with a lotta life. Many scary and beyond stressful times amidst the joy of their sweet love. And you can see it all when you see them together. The way that Alex can bring Kate immediate peace and calm with his words, the way he looks at her. The way Kate trusts him...

This was our first wedding of this wedding season, and boy oh BOY were we anxiously anticipating it! I met Mary as a bridesmaid on an absolutely perrrrfect wedding day last summer, and luckily for me, she actually thought I wasn’t completely weird and booked us for her wedding! Not sure I’ve mentioned before how much I love when former bridesmaids...

...speaking of Michigan summers, I got to kick my summer off with an engagement session for an old high school friend and her wonderful man on Memorial Day weekend in Grand Haven! How perfect is that?! Meet Matt&Erin. I really, really like these two. From the moment we started taking photos, they were laughing and full of joy. Whether that was from the nervousness...

...while there is much I could say to tell of their love, my favorite part of the story was hearing Tara talk about how surely and lovingly Jamie stepped into the role of not only lover to Tara, but also a father figure to Tara’s daughter, Claudia. He knew when he stepped into the commitment of this relationship, it was a two for one kinda deal. Which not only was...
