Lots of weddings this year! I still even have six more to go, which is awesome and insane! I shot a wedding today in Grand Rapids and let’s just say they chose the most beautiful perfect day ever! It was clear and sunny, mid seventies and like I said, absolutely gorgeous (just like them!). It was super fun working with them and their wedding party and although we hit a few snags in the park it all worked out great in the end. Of course the end meaning an absolutely breathtaking sun setting portrait time ;) But anyway – on to the photos!



p.s. I’m loving this new camera :) May just have to save for one for Paul!

It was looming rain all day, forecast  for all week. It was even hailing as we were driving up to the house! Thankfully it subsided and we caught some beautiful photos of these two in some incredible evening light. I love it when everything goes so well :D

Can’t wait to show you more! I will definitely have time for some blogging this winter and I just can’t wait… Although be prepared for a whole ton of posts! Probably one each day for a while :) Gives me something to do during those chilly months. Like I said – Can’t wait!

Shot a senior session tonight! I was glad that it was a little overcast – but did the sun have to make the sunset look so pretty tonight!? Anyway, it was fun trying to get him to smile different ways (sometimes with senior guys it takes a little convincing :P) Anyway, I think it went pretty well! I’m so happy we found a beautiful spiral staircase to shoot with right at the end of the session… I MAY have to use it more next time I’m shooting in Holland!


Anyway – picture time!!



Now to enjoy some dinner, with a side of more editing! :D

I’ve been shooting tons of creative and beautiful thank-you’s recently! Remember – schedule a time during your reception to take some creative sunset (or sparkler!) thank-you’s! They tend to be some of my most favorite photos of the day because of the lighting, but mostly because everything else important is finished and you can get something a little more relaxed while people are partying it up :) I actually composed a GIF for this one that I was quite proud of :D



Feel free to let me know what you think! (Or if you have idea’s for one you’d like to do yourself :P)

Shot two weddings so far this September and still have one to go! Usually I don’t book very many weddings in the fall, but there is exceptions every year. :) I actually love shooting in the fall weather (well… it still TECHNICALLY is summer…) so I’m super excited about all of my fall weddings this year. So sit back and enjoy the exciting fun (crazy fun!) day this couple had. And Leah, YOU’RE MARRIED!!! Woo! :D


Time to rest for a couple of weeks… Oh, and have a birthday! :D Have I mentioned I love September yet? Because I do!

I shot a fabulous wedding today :) It was jam packed of so much fun and enjoyment that it almost passed by too quickly! Anyway, I’m anxious to post these pictures, so I’ll be quiet now and let you see!


And oh yea, Mike is an amazing drummer!


I’m also excited to post what I shot yesterday… But you’ll have to stay tuned in for that one ;) Have a great night!
