Earlier this month we had the absolute honor of photographing our lovely new friends Larry&Lauren’s wedding, and boy… did we leave with a full heart! Drew actually grew up going to church with Lauren when they were very wee ones. (And I’ve seen photos… YEESH were they cute.) Through the means of facebook, Lauren happened to notice that Drew...

They put the people around them at ease. Individually, and even more so when they’re together. They listen to your every word and care about each one. They will do anything to help you at any time that is humanly possible. They will make you laugh, and laugh when you’re funny as well. :) They have phenomenal taste in, oh, everything in life. They have, share...

Curtis&Jillian have been a total dream to work, and it’s been so much fun to be with them for every step of this season leading up to their beautiful wedding day! Curtis is a friend from our college days, and we were totally stoked when he contacted me about hiding around a corner in a sweet little coffee shop to document his proposal to Jillian. These two are...

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...

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...

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...

I have been just so darn excited to share this day with you. And mostly not for the usual reasons. I mean, don’t get me wrong – it was a beautiful fall day, with a ceremony in the amazing Cathedral of St. Andrew, and, just when we thought we were going to get rained out of our adventures around the lovely Fredrick Meijer Gardens… no rain! Perfect. But...
