In March I kicked off the 2019 wedding season with Jasmine and Deion’s special day! It was a beautiful sunny (yet cold) early spring day and the whole wedding party was willing to brave the cold air to take some photos outside. Their ceremony was held at Kentwood Community Church and the reception at the beautiful Stonewater Country Club. It was my first time at Stonewater Country club and I always enjoy seeing new wedding locations around my own city! Congratulations Jasmine and Deion, thanks for letting me be a part of your wedding - enjoy this preview of your photos!
On a rainy Saturday I drove down to Indiana with an assistant to photograph Heather and Dale's wedding. I don't often work with an assistant but knowing we didn't have a lot of time for pictures on this day I was very thankful Dale and Heather had asked for two photographers! Despite the bad weather the wedding party were in good spirits and the tent kept everyone dry during the ceremony. Their reception was at a cool old courthouse downtown within walking distance of the backyard wedding - plus the rain stopped long enough for a few photos outside before the reception started. Enjoy this preview of some of my favorites!
A couple weeks ago on a beautiful summer Saturday in Northern Michigan I had the pleasure of photographing Megan and Kahler's wedding. They both attended Grand Valley which was where we took their engagement photos, but these high school sweethearts chose to return to their home town for their wedding. The ceremony and reception were at a venue on the shore of Lake Huron which made an awesome backdrop and despite a forecast of rain it stayed dry the entire day. Plus, the bridal party all knew each other and wanted to have fun when taking photos which always makes my job easier :) Here are some of my favorites from Megan and Kahler's special day!
Last Friday I had the privilege of meeting Mady and Nick and photographing their intimate courthouse wedding in South Haven (so intimate that I was asked to sign the marriage license as a witness). These two live out of state and wanted a cute lakeside town for their wedding which they were keeping secret from everyone. I love that they still wanted photos despite keeping the rest of the wedding small and am amazed that they managed to keep this wedding secret for months from everyone they know! Mady and Nick were so much fun and more then willing to brave the cold and the wind of southwest Michigan for some great photo spots - I just wish I could have seen the reactions of their friends and family when they surprised them with these pictures :) Here are some of my favorites from their wedding day.
Zach's sister is a good friend of mine and Stephanie works for the same company I do so when I was asked to photograph their intimate wedding ceremony I happily agreed. Although our first attempt to take photos at a park was quickly stopped by swarms of mosquito's the wedding party were good sports and we managed to find some good locations outside the church for photos. Zach and Stephanie had punch and cake then a bonfire (which I didn't photograph) rather than a traditional reception, but it was clear they are loved by many friends and family! Here are some of my favorite images from their wedding.
Last weekend I had the opportunity to photograph Jess and Jason's wedding at the Grand Rapids Children's Museum. It was such a fun and unique setting for a wedding and aside from dancing the guests had access to all the exhibits at the museum and everyone seemed to have a great time. Enjoy this preview of some of my favorite pictures of their special day!
