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 :)

farm at dover wisconsin bohemian wedding

Dover, Wisconsin | Katrina + Addison

the perfect dress. the perfect shoes. the perfect bouquet. the perfect couple

everything about katrina and addisons farm at dover wisconsin bohemian wedding was infused with them.  from the location, to her dress, to their ceremony, to their reception...each detail had meaning and purpose.  they both have an amazing heart for the lord and it was so evident throughout their day and relationship.

before they got married, katrina was living and working in south africa as a teacher for a local school and now they are both there serving and working together.  just to show you how big of a heart these two have, they just adopted two young kids who needed a family not a year after they have been married.  its not often you find two people as special as these ones.

ps can we just swoon over katrinas stunning sequin bohemian bhldn dress.  it might be my favorite ever!

downtown chicago spring engagement

chicago, illinois | Amy + Ray

these are my chicago city dwelling friends everyone. 

when an engagement shoot is basically just hanging out with your friends for the day, adventureing through downtown, im into it.  exploring new back alleys in a city you've been to a million times is the most inspiring.  these two inspire me.  wait till you see amys vision for her michigan bohemian backyard camp forest wedding.  yes. it will be all those things and more. 

let the countdown begin.

baker lofts holland michigan wedding

gabrielle + hunter | holland, michigan 


this baker loft wedding in holland michigan was full of those.

as a photographer I get to share many moments with couples that no one else gets to see or experience.  moments that the bride and groom may not have even noticed themselves. hunter mouthing "you look beautiful" to his bride as she waits to be given away by her father. or him sitting on the edge of the back seat trying to be as close to gabrielle in the front seat as he can as I drive them around for portraits.

I will never take these flashes in time for granted.  its not the wedding days I remember but the moments shared with my couples on the best day of their lives.
