Married: Anna + Jeff

Where do I even begin? I was so excited when Anna called to tell me she was engaged, and that she wanted ME to take the photos! We were friends from college, but hadn’t seen each other in ages. I was so honored and of course said YES!

This day was absoltuely stunning. They held their whole wedding at the beautiful Frederick Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Anna is from the Grand Rapids area, and Jeff is from Kansas City, so they had to do long distance for quite awhile. It was SO beautiful to witness them finally making their lives one and starting off their new lives together.

These two were naturals in front of the camera. Their chemistry was spectacular, and their love for each other was so genuine. I am so floored to be able to finally share these images with you.

Anna & Jeff, it was a privilege to photograph your perfect day. You are both loved by so many! Cheers!

 

Married: Ben + Sarah

Ben & Sarah were married at Missio Dei in Lakeview. The whole wedding was so sweet and creative. Every aspect was styled by Sarah, and a ton of teamwork went into every last detail. It truly was a labor of love!

These two are not only amazing friends, but such a beautiful couple. My husband and I are blessed to call them friends.

We love you both so much!

Enjoy!

 

Married: Maggie + Marcus

Photographing this wedding was a dream. Maggie is one of my nearest and dearest friends and the whole wedding was incredibly beautiful. The whole thing took place on her grandparents property in Streator, Illinois, and her whole family came together to make the whole thing so special. The whole day was so full of love and beauty.

Congratulations again, sweet friends!

W: Jen & Taijuan!

It was such an honor to photograph Jennifer & Taijuan’s wedding. These two were absolutely adorable, and it was evident in everything they did how much fun they had together.

One of the beautiful things about what I do is the opportunity I have to get to know my clients! Jennifer and I would always end up meeting for longer than we’d planned because long after wedding gab we would just keep talking! I can say I walked away with a dear friend and am honored I got to photograph their beautiful day! Their wedding was so classic and full of excitement, and I loved the personality and joy that surrounded every little moment. Congratulations, again!

W: Kim & Evan!

Kimberly & Evan’s wedding was full of class and beautiful summer colors. These two were not only amazing to work with, but I had such a fun time getting to know them while I worked with them in the months before their wedding. Their gorgeous downtown event put our beautiful city on display, and I loved being able to capture all of the little details and hard work Kimberly put into it!

Her shoes sparkled! How fun!

These portraits of Kimberly are some of my favorite from the entire day- I could not get enough of the window light and that amazing veil!

Kimberly’s family was full of so much personality- I couldn’t post just one!

Both Kimberly and Evan’s joy shone through in every moment of their wedding day- it was such a pleasure to capture it!

I loved Kimberly’s ring- so beautiful and so unique!

The view was to die for!

Kimberly’s whole family had flown in from China, and the goodbyes at the end were probably one of my favorites moments of the evening. Her grandfather was so excited for them, and their entire family was so supportive. I loved being able to witness all of the joy and excitement surrounding their marriage!

Congrats again, you two! It was a sincere pleasure to be a part of your big day!
