Can’t decide between WMU campus and Van Buren State Park? Let’s do both! We started on the campus of Western Michigan University at Heritage Hall with a few fun shots in front of the building, we even had time for a quick aerial shot. We then crossed the street to Vandercook Hall (one of my favorite buildings on campus) for some really cool images of the ivy covered brick walls. We also made a quick stop at the fountains behind Miller Auditorium before heading out to Van Buren State Park for sunset on the dunes over Lake Michigan. Also, I may or may not have led them down the wrong path and up a large, unnecessary dune, in the dark, on the way out…as we were eaten alive by mosquitos… Check out the awesome stuff we got!
Melissa and Evan met up with me in Grand Rapids for their engagement photos. We started out in Rosa Parks Circle, made our way to the Grand Rapids Art Museum, The Love sculpture, the Grand River, and finally The Blue Bridge. I’ll be photographing their wedding in March of 2020 in Kalamazoo at the Country Club. Check out a few highlights from their engagement session!
Julie and Cole couldn’t decide on how they wanted their engagement photos to look, so we scheduled two sessions! Their first session was in the Fall on the Kalamazoo Mall, just a bit different than this second session out on the frozen pier of South Haven. Julie and Cole’s wedding is in September with the ceremony at Trinity Lutheran Church in Kalamazoo and the reception at Cityscape on the Kalamazoo Mall. Here’s some of the results from our cold day in February on Lake Michigan…
Wow! It was absolutely freezing during this engagement session, but these two didn’t let that keep them from having a blast! One of the best problems to have on a shoot is when you have a hard time getting photos of them not cracking up! I couldn’t help but to smile along with them as I edited the images from this day. Candiance and Allyn were quite refreshing to work with and I really look forward to capturing their wedding day in August at Res-Les Farms in Southwest Michigan.
I met up with Paige and Jake last weekend for their engagement photos in Grand Rapids. We started out at the steps of the Grand Rapids Public Library then headed over to the Fountain Street Church. We spent a little time at the GRAM, Rosa Parks Circle, and the Amway Grand, then crossed the Grand River to the Gerald R. Ford Museum. I had a bit of a drone malfunction (worn out lightening cable) so I’m a little bummed we didn’t get a cool shot on the bridge but we ended up with some great material from the ground level.
These two are getting married next October at The Henderson Castle in Kalamazoo. Check out a few highlights from their engagement session.
Sara & Kevin met up with me for their engagement photos at Milham Park in Kalamazoo after the first good snow fall in Southwest Michigan a couple weeks ago. It gets a little cold but I love winter sessions like this! These two are getting married next October. Here’s a few highlights from the session. Congrats you two!
I met up with Julie & Cole on the last weekend in October for their Fall engagement session on Kalamazoo Mall Dr. We spent some time in the beautiful brick road ally next to Gazelle Sports and the ally behind Something’s Brewing coffee shop. We then explored a bit around the Kalamazoo Valley Museum and ended up under an amazing canopy of string lights behind Monaco Bay! These two will be getting married next September at the Trinity Lutheran Church downtown Kalamazoo, then heading over to Cityscape for their reception. Here’s a few highlights from their engagement photos.
On a cold fall day, Tricia, Josh, and I met up at the beautiful Asylum Lake Preserve for their engagement photos. We found some great fall colors out in the grass prairie and on the trails! These two are getting married next May at Kanley Chapel at Western Michigan University with their reception at The Gilmore Theatre. I’m so glad they asked me to be their wedding photographer! Here’s a few highlights from their session…
