baker lofts holland michigan wedding
 

gabrielle + hunter | holland, michigan 

moments.

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.

...like hunter mouthing "you look beautiful" to his bride as she waits to be given away by her father. or him sitting in my car 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.

Florals - Picket Fence Flowers

Cupcakes (the best ive ever had btw) - The Cakabakery

Venue - Baker Lofts

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!!

sundance studios intimate outdoor diy wedding
 

britt + cory | St. Joseph, michigan

Sundance Studios vintage wedding event space in benton harbor, mi.  can we just talk about them for a minute.  I had the privilege to get married at their other venue, The Blue Dress Barn, and they are the most amazingly talented people I have ever met.  Last year was the first year the space was open and it was so fun following along with their renovations.  I could not recommend them enough.  ok no more gushing. promise...

ok maybe some gushing about britt and cory.  

I went to college with these two and it has been so fun watching their story evolve.  I talked a little bit about it when I blogged their engagement session here, but long story short they are two of the most kind hearted people I have ever met.  they invest in people so well and I admire that about them.

their intimate diy wedding is one i could relive over and over again.  all of the details, from corys leather tie, to the wooden blocks to hold the rings, to the table numbers were all handmade by cory himself.  but my all time favorite part with working with couples like these two is knowing that long after the wedding is over and the photographs are delivered i will still get to call them friends.  if you want that relationship then i want to work with you!

eric + ana | marquette, michigan

these two are my kind of people.  I mean come on...anna should basically just be a model.  I could shoot these two all day.  they are so in love with each other it just pours out of them. I had the insane privilege to second shoot alongside one of the best, jess hunter on this one. if you havent seen her work you totally need to. she is so incredibly talented and it was such a joy working with her! 

if you are feeling that edgy moody vibe im all yours! I could get use to doing more weddings like these!
