Amy + Steven were married last weekend on April 27th, 2019. The day started with Amy and her bridesmaids getting ready at the City Flats Hotel in Grand Rapids. Steven and the groomsmen were getting ready just 5 minutes away at his apartment. Their wedding ceremony was held at St. Mary’s church in Grand Rapids. Following the ceremony, we took a party bus limo around downtown Grand Rapids, making stops at the Blue Bridge for a few photos (one with the drone), the Grand Rapids Art Museum, and the Love sculpture for an epic wedding party photo that looks like a magazine cover (someone publish it!). We jumped back on the party bus to head over to the Bissell Tree House for the reception. Check out a few highlights from their special day!
Katharine and Collin met me in Townsend Park in Cannonsburg for their late fall engagement session. A light snowfall halfway through the shoot was a huge bonus! These two were naturals and really didn’t need much direction from me. Check out a few highlights from the session..
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.
Tom and Kelly were married last weekend in Holland, MI. Kelly and her bridesmaids got ready in a beautiful home on Lake Michigan. For their first look, Tom arrived at the house and stood on a deck facing the lake, waiting for Kelly. We then headed out for the barn ceremony in Holland. Kelly came down the aisle riding sidesaddle on Charley the horse. After the ceremony, we all headed up to the loft of the barn for the reception where everyone took part in dancing and celebrating their love!
Darian and Americo met me on the Kalamazoo Mall for their engagement session, we walked around town and headed over to a few abandoned buildings to finish up the shoot. These two are getting married next August in Holland, MI. The ceremony will be held at a really cool little place called Morningside Park, which looks awesome for photos. We’ll then head over to Baker Lofts in Holland for the wedding reception. So Glad you two asked me to be your wedding photographer!
What a fun spring wedding here in Grand Rapids, Michigan! There are so many amazing churches with tall cathedral ceilings and beautiful stained glass windows. The Bride and Groom were really fun to work with and gave us plenty of great photo opportunities throughout the day, including an amazing bubble exit from the tall wooden church doors, out into the streets of Grand Rapids. We then walked with the wedding party down the streets, stopping throughout the city for photos. We wrapped up the night with dinner, cake cutting, champaign toasts, and dancing at The Courtyard by Marriott for the reception.
