grand rapids park engagement
 

trust. ive said it once and ill say it a million times. couples who trust their photographer are literally the best. i told these two to meet me at a local grand rapids park. however, after driving to said park, me, being the weirdo that i am, found cooler run down janky places along the way that i liked better. so i called them up, sent them a pin and said to meet me on the side of the road. and what did they do…they just said ok!

we did make it to the park, but there is a special place in my heart for discolored walls, chain link fences, and overgrown weeds and i am grateful for people like kaitlyn and jack who go with my vision. just wait till you see their Camp Blodgett wedding…coming soon :)

 
heritage prairie farm vintage bohemian wedding
 

 sarah + rick | elburn, illinois

this Heritage Prairie Farm Rustic Vintage Wedding was a special one for me.  I was sarahs studio assistant when I was living in chicago and she is an amazingly talented family photographer so the pressure was on!  one of my favorite things about sarah is she is so thoughtful.  when it came time for my birthday or christmas I always knew I was in for a treat.  not only are her gifts so incredibly meaningful, her gift wrapping is impeccable as well, and let me tell you, I am a sucker for good packaging! so I basically knew for a fact her wedding details were going to be nothing short of amazing and that they were!

sarah and rick dated for a longgg time before rick popped the question. we always joke that it took him long enough, but nothing could be more perfect on their wedding day.  from the personalized rustic invitations to the vintage china table settings, there was nothing missing from this intimate barn wedding.  

I am always so grateful clients that turn into friends, but there is something special about friends who turn into clients.

ps please all take a second and swoon over the back of sarahs dress.  I mean come onnn!!

pps if you are in the chicago area and in the market for some studio family photos, check out sarahs studio: Wildwood Photography

second shooter: the amazingggg Alexa from Alexa Ray Studio

venue: Heritage Prairie Farm

 

 
holland sand dune woodsy engagement
 

cory + britt | Norton Shores, Michigan

who doesnt want to get cute and snuggling in the middle of the forest surrounded by beautiful white sand dunes?!  I know I do!  there is something so freaking cool about michigan and the midwest that is like no other place in the united states.  there are hidden gems all around and little oasis' around every corner.  britt and cory suggested this outdoorsy adventure and I am so gald they did.  it was nice to get out in the fresh air and go for a little hike.
