Congratulations Elaina + Jon! These two love birds were married on June 14, 2019. We started by getting ready at the WMU Fetzer Center, which has a pretty cool suite for the bridesmaids. After the finishing touches, Elaina and Jon decided to do a first look out on the beautiful back deck of the Fetzer Center. We then headed over to the Donald E. Overlander bandshell in Portage, MI for their ceremony. After taking bridal party photos around the park and more on WMU campus, we headed back over to the Fetzer Center for the reception. Check out some highlights from their evening…
Lindsey & Tim! Wow, I love your natural interaction with each other and how these photos turned out! Tim grew up down the street from Rawson’s King Mill County Park, so it just seemed like a great idea to shoot there, and I’m sure glad we did! These two will be getting married next October at the Blue Heron Barn in Kalamazoo. Can’t wait to photograph their wedding! Check out a few highlights from their engagement session…
Katharine & Collin were married on May 25th, 2019 at the Plainfield Christian Church in Belmont, MI. After the ceremony, we headed over to the Revel Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan. A light breeze and the bride’s long veil made for some great portraits. Check out a few highlights from their evening!
Natalie & Bill were married in Panama City Beach, Florida back on May 8, 2018. I wasn’t able to go with them to photograph the ceremony but I did have the honor of capturing their wedding reception which was held on December 8, 2018 at the Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan in Kalamazoo. Here’s just a few highlights from the evening. Congrats you two!
It was such an honor to photograph Greg and João's wedding on Friday. What a fun wedding and stunning ceremony! The event was held at The Jolly Pumpkin on Old Mission Peninsula in Traverse City, MI. The Grand Traverse Bay provided an amazing back drop for the ceremony while they stood on a grassy hill to say, "I do" in front of their closest friends and family. The reception was filled with love, laughter, smiling faces, and lots of dancing. I'm so lucky to be a wedding photographer and to witness once in a lifetime moments like these!
These two! This is why I'm a wedding photographer... We're counting down the days until they say "I Do". Their wedding day is just a week away so here's a little summary of their engagement photos. All images are captured on the campus of Western Michigan University. We started at Heritage Hall, formerly East Hall, where we played around with photos on the steps, at the tall columns of the building, and overlooking Kalamazoo. Then we moved to the front of the building in the tall grass and eventually across the road to Vandercook Hall, one of my favorite buildings in Kalamazoo. It's so beautiful with all the ivy covering the face of the historic building. See for yourself!
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.
