Christina + Luke: A snowy farm engagement
If you're from Michigan or pretty much anywhere in the mid-west, you know this winter has been brutally cold. West Michigan has been hit particularly hard with a lot of ice and snow in a short amount of time.

Kelsey and Alex's wedding was literally a fairytale. Their colorful details and abundant love will go down as one of my favorite weddings of all time. Oh and the light! That gorgeous light we got to play in all day long!

Katelin and Tom’s gorgeous Wildwood Family Farms wedding is officially on the blog! This was my first time at this stunning venue and it was definitely not a disappointment. The beautiful gardens and rustic details throughout were put together with such vision and love.
Wedding planning can be fun, exciting, stressful, overwhelming and about a million other adjectives. There are over an abundance of vendors out there, especially here in West Michigan and that doesn’t exclude photographers. The good news? You have options! The bad news? The process of narrowing down that one photographer you must have on your […]
You’ve got the ring, you set the date, you booked the venue, you booked the photographer (hopefully it’s me! 😉) and now it’s time for your engagement session! Why is an engagement session important? I absolutely LOVE doing engagement sessions. I love spending those 90 or so minutes with you walking and talking, finding amazing […]
I’ve probably said this more than once, but 2019 was full of friends tying the knot. It has been such an exciting year watching some of the best people I know have the happiest times of their lives! When Pagiel + Zach asked me to photograph their wedding day, I would be lying if I […]
Ah, I just adore this girl! Ryanne and I have been riding buddies for many years and I swear we’ve been talking about her wedding day since we met. When Stephen finally proposed on Mary’s Bridge at Neuschwanstein Castle, I was so dang stoked for them! Ryanne was a gorgeous bride. Seeing the pure joy […]
Krystin and Luke’s October may have been a windy, chilly day but the sunshine couldn’t have been more welcomed. Their ceremony took place at the beautiful St. Isidore in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Following a lovely full mass, we made our way to the amazing Aquinas College for bridal party photos. It was cold, it was […]
Christina and Lucas’ October wedding is finally here! The day started at St. Michael’s Church in Coopersville. The girls got ready in the classroom where Christina teaches. A discreet first look between Christina and her father was super sweet! They had a beautiful Catholic service, making their union official, surrounded by so many close friends […]
Enjoy some of my favorites from Joni + Mike’s September wedding at Stonewater Country Club! Joni was a stunning bride in her gorgeous dress. Mike’s reaction at their first look was one of my favorites of 2019! I mean, just check out that excitement on his face! We had a blast spending the day with […]
I shoot a lot of weddings so I meet a lot of people and experience some great love stories. Brandy and Matt’s wedding day was no exception but I knew from the moment I met them last year, they would be one of my favorite couples to work with for 2019, maybe even of all […]
Melanie and Mark’s August wedding at Wildwood Family Farm in Alto Michigan was more perfect than words can describe. The weather was absolutely amazing, the most ideal temp, which is really unheard of for August in Michigan. I’m always preparing for 90s and humid as heck. This was my second time at Wildwood this year […]
Isn’t this girl just absolutely STUNNING?! I couldn’t agree more. I had such a fun evening with Jessa, her mom and Jessa’s boyfriend. We played with horses, strolled around downtown Grand Rapids and laughed a TON. Jessa’s sister even helped out with a phone call of jokes to break the ice. My other passion in […]
