A crisp autumn morning, one of my favorite locations, AND a stylish couple! What more could I ask for? This couple brings a small town sort of kindness the type that reminds me of being back home, where everyone calls you hun and waves when driving by. When they asked me to photograph their 2016 wedding I was elated. Just from hearing Jessica rave about the details, décor and location is making me really impatient and so excited for their amazing day!

Ryan and Hannah beam with love for each other. We met on a warm fall evening at a gorgeous Michigan park. Normally being November we are knee high in snow by now! Mother nature has been more kind than usual, giving us the perfect day for a stellar engagement session. Ryan has a deep love for insanely adorable daughter, Emma. She joined Hanna and Ryan in their engagement photos, as she is a part of their love for one and other. I had so much fun photographing this fun family!

When I received an email from Elizabeth asking if I would photograph her and Kody's engagement photos I was thrilled! This adorable young couple were the perfect match for a downtown engagement session. If anyone has been to downtown Grand Rapids you'll know just how busy it is. Even though the bustling sounds of the city Kody and Elizabeth's love was louder! The weather ideal, a soft lit evening set the light hearted mood for this adventurous couple. These two truly seem like soul mates, such a treat to photograph. It is an honor to be a part of their wedding. Their 1920's inspired wedding will be nothing short of fabulous, I can hardly wait to photograph it!

These two are the definition of fun! The looks they give one another! Their love shines when they are together. I was honored to have this session be one of my first engagement sessions. Michigan winters can be bone chilling but John and Tiffany's love warms my heart right up! The winter of 2013 was cold to say the least, the snow sparkling in the sunlight made up for any amount of chilly temperatures. Tiffany had requested we meet at her Grandparents house, where she holds precious family memories. The stories she told us about the long nights spent ice fishing with not just a few loved ones, dozens really were amazing to hear! This tight knit family is truly an amazing one, love is their foundation. I've had the honor of knowing them most of my life. Photographing Tiffany and John's love in their engagement session and their gorgeous country wedding, was such a fun time!
Young, fun, and so in love, describes this little family. Tommy and Hannah began their relationship as high school sweethearts! Being able to watch them grow as a couple has been quite the gift. Their love is in fact undeniable. They came to me requesting their son, Tristan be featured in their engagement photos, something I always think is a great idea! Their little guy's innocents shines through in his photographs, there's no doubt about that. We spent the warm autumn afternoon chasing him around the park, laughing and exploring. The amount of love this couple has for their son is on display nonstop. I love it! This little family will always have a place in my heart. Just getting to witness Tommy and Hannah wed was amazing, getting to be part of their big day was even better! Family and close friends were all in attendance at their stunning rustic wedding.
