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…
Rachel and Adam are getting married next September in Muskegon, Michigan. I get really excited about photographing west coast Michigan weddings. Anywhere from Southwest Michigan to Northern Michigan is just loaded with beautiful scenery and awesome people like these two! They decided to have their engagement photos taken at the Kitchel/Lindquist/Hartger Dunes Preserve and The Northshore Marina in Grand Haven, Michigan. The Marina is at the mouth of the Grand River as it pours into Lake Michigan. We had beautiful fall weather with some really chilly winds! The sunset on the pier was a huge highlight! Speaking of highlights, here’s a few of my favorites from the shoot.
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!
What a great time with this family at the Rocky Gap Park Beach in Benton Harbor. Lake Michigan was looking beautiful and so was this huge family!
