camp blodgett beach wedding

west olive, michigan | kaitlyn + jack

there is nothing better than a western michigan summer sunset on your wedding day. really any day for that matter but especially on your wedding day. kaitlyn and jack had the most…and I mean the most perfect weather for their camp blodgett beach wedding.

they kept it simple with their closest friends and family surrounding them for their ceremony on the deck of camp blodgett overlooking the beach. after some photos in the beautiful sun, they took it inside for toasts and dinner. the camps dinner area has surrounding windows so the whole time you can check out the captivating dunes and water. after dinner and dessert they headed back out onto the deck for some dancing under the twinkle lights. you could smell the cool breeze coming off lake michigan as they danced the night away.

and you bet your bottom dollar we snuck away to the beach for some sunset photos. isnt kaitlyns renee austin dress absolutely stunning. the way it was swept up with the breeze during the whole day was amazeballs!

massachusetts berkshire estates intimate mountain wedding

shelburne falls, massachusetts | rivka + aaron

ive said it a million times but it is such a blessing and privilege to photograph my friends. I ran track in college with Rivka (and I use the term ran very loosely because you would often times find us in the bathroom hiding during the warm up…sorry coach bowman) and also had the joy of being her roommate for a season. if you know Rivka you know how infectious her personality is and how she has a deep love for people. my favorite thing about Rivka so far, has been watching her be loved so passionately by Aaron. she is a strong independent woman, but lets him love and lead her in the best way. the way aaron broke down when he saw her walking down the aisle and was so giddy to give her a hug melted my heart.

Rivka is a meticulous planner. No detail went unnoticed for her berkshire estate mountain wedding. she found an estate with a perfect mountain view, designed the most stunning dress (yes, she designed her dress), and planned the most perfect and intimate ceremony…yes i cried ok.

the eastern detroit downtown warehouse wedding

detroit, michigan | lauren + matthew

the eastern detroit near downtown detroits eastern market is an industrial wedding photographers dream. A warehouse with open ceiling and exposed brick walls cant be beat. not only that but laurens decor vision was absolutely on point. from the matte black goblets, to the pampas grass center pieces, to the beautiful copper arbor, laurens florist, detroit design co, absolutely killed her vision. if you want to know how to kill some industrial, yet soft reception decor, first hire detroit design co, and then check out laurens designs. her dress was stunning as well. the scallop lace details on the sleeves were so perfectly intricate, and her wedding dress even had a detachable skirt….i mean come on people!!

I may be a little bit biased because matthew is my cousin, but the whole day was so stunning and even with the rain we were able to get some pretty awesome downtown detroit portraits. if you missed their engagement session, check it out because its probably my favorite.

midwest wedding at morton arboretum

lisle, illinois | karlee + mark

this year went so fast! traveling all over the midwest, photographing weddings while learning the ropes at being a new mom looks a little different these days. who knew you would need to schedule in time to pump at a wedding. all of my couples have been so chill and understanding and I couldnt have asked for anything more!

speaking of chill…that defines karlee and mark (on top of ridiculously ridiculously good looking). karlee was dying to have an outdoor ceremony, and if you have seen morton arboretum you totally understand why, but the forecast had other plans. the park ranger (yes they have a park ranger) insisted we move it inside and thank goodness we did because the sky opened as soon as karlee walked down the aisle.

if i could bottle up the way mark looked at karlee i would. he would steal hand kisses and just hold her whenever he got the urge. it was presh.

luckily the rain stopped at soon as the ceremony was over and we were able to get some amazing couples portraits throughout the arboretum.
