francesca + daniel

These two and their family and friends were so much overflowing with joy and love for one another. Daniel and Francesca went all-out with their fairytale-inspired wedding, and I will say it was a lot of fun shooting the sunlight falling on their lovely little princessly and princely details. In addition, I was truly honored to spend the day with two people so humble, generous, and positively radiant with joy.

See for yourself!

sasha + sam

I am convinced that no one has ever been so accommodating and helpful to their wedding photographer as these two kind souls were for me. I knew Sasha and Sam were kind souls since I photographed their engagement pictures, but it struck me when, on their wedding day, the very first thing Sasha said when I walked into the salon where she got ready was, “did you get something to eat?”

In addition to the kindness they offered me there was so much efficiency in their scheduling and coordinating to make things easy for me and their other vendors, but still with so much readiness and ease for when things inevitably didn’t go as planned. They were excited to have my creativity present, open to ideas, but also brought their own ideas in order for us to collaborate together. All of this made the atmosphere an absolute piece of cake to work in; and that’s not to mention the stunning decorations, lovely shooting locations, and the bridal party who just felt like friends to me!

Best of all, they and their friends and family all shared such a profoundly honest and generous love for one another, that they welcome me into readily. What a dream.

Congratulations to these ones! These two have been through thick and thin together, and it was such an honor to be around to celebrate the union best friends to one another, and to preserve these memories for them and their families. Jess and Kevin were a couple of the most easygoing people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with, while simultaneously knowing how to freaking party. What a riot!

rebecca + kwasi

I’ve known Rebecca and her family for several years, so being a part of her day with Kwasi was a special one for me. There is something so rare and beautiful about witnessing a union like this through the eyes of a camera lens; every little moment, every expression, every detail, every laugh.

What an honor it was to walk with these two beautiful, sincere, intelligent, selfless, and hardworking souls as they bonded their lives and cultures together. I only hope these pictures could do them justice.

Kindness shines from the eyes of these two. I was blessed to be able to work with these two for their engagement pictures, and I’m so thankful for their flexibility and patience when unexpected changes came along.

Their wedding day was about as perfect as it comes in Michigan’s springtime; they were wed in a small chapel at their dear Portage Lake Bible Camp, and the comfort and joy of this day felt amplified by the rustic cabin vibes, the bright lake, and and the many twinkle lights at their reception.

I am so thankful to have photographed the deep love that surrounded Wendy and Andrew on this lovely day.

It was chilly outside. But so much warmth, joy, and gratitude emanated from William, Julia, and their family and friends on the day of their beautiful autumn wedding.
Low light, bright souls.

Enjoy the smiles and electric energy of these two. So happy for them and their profoundly lovely and sincere love for one another.

It can be surprisingly fun to improvise with a bride and groom when a downpour comes along on their wedding day. I was so glad Alison and Chris remained positive and excited all day, despite the abysmally wet weather! I'm always thankful for clients who won't let anything discourage their special day, because what matters is that they're together and celebrating their beautiful union!

Everything about this day was the simplest sort of elegant, organic, and honest. Such an absolute dream to photograph all the lovely details!

I'm so thankful, also, to have been able to shoot with Stephaney and John before for their engagement, and when they adopted their beautiful puppy Kai (I'm sure you'll see some of the snaps from that session soon too)! Glad for their kind hearts and modesty, for the ways the serve others generously, and for their artistic taste; I'm so humbled to have been able to photograph this beautiful day!

Wow. You couldn't ask for a more beautiful day to get married. This is a wedding I love looking back through; even though a few things didn't go as planned, the celebration went on, and the memories are gold.

I had the joy of photographing Steph and Trevor's engagement photos earlier on, so I got to experience the dynamic of their steady, devoted, and joyful love even before their wedding day. All the more exciting, then, to enter into this beautiful day with them. Everything about this day was full of fun, organic warmth and beauty—from the venue and the photo locations, down to the wildflower inspired florals and the place settings. The only thing missing was their dear pup, Rowdy!

erica + isaac

These two fought hard to get here. They traveled miles, crossed borders, and faced literal hurricanes in their journey to this day. And what a day it was. Charged with praise and gratitude for making it safely back to Michigan through the gales of hurricane Harvey. But they did it. Erica and Isaac are dang married! And what a celebration! It was a clear, beautiful day, brimming with laughter and the joy of a family all in one place; so vibrant with Venezuelan music, bright colors, and some seriously passionate jamming out.

Ladies and gents, Erica and Isaac.
