{lia&zain} married! – 8.30.14 – grand rapids wedding photographer

Hello all! And happy evening! I was begging and pleading with the sky today to hold back the projected all day thunderstorms so Lia and Zain’s outdoor wedding wasn’t washed out – and oh happy day the skies stayed clear! There was lots of wind though… lots and LOTS of wind. But it didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits and Lia and Zain’s beautiful ceremony went perfectly at Aquinas. We then moved out to the McKay Ballroom for their beautiful reception! lzbloglogo-1001 lzbloglogo-1002 lzbloglogo-1003 lzbloglogo-1004 lzbloglogo-1005 lzbloglogo-1006 lzbloglogo-1007 lzbloglogo-1008 lzbloglogo-1009 lzbloglogo-1010 lzbloglogo-1011 lzbloglogo-1012 lzbloglogo-1013 lzbloglogo-1014 lzbloglogo-1015 lzbloglogo-1016 lzbloglogo-1017 lzbloglogo-1018 lzbloglogo-1019 lzbloglogo-1020 lzbloglogo-1021 lzbloglogo-1022 lzbloglogo-1023 lzbloglogo-1024 lzbloglogo-1025 lzbloglogo-1026 lzbloglogo-1027 lzbloglogo-1028 lzbloglogo-1029 lzbloglogo-1030 lzbloglogo-1031 lzbloglogo-1032 lzbloglogo-1033 lzbloglogo-1034 lzbloglogo-1035 lzbloglogo-1036 lzbloglogo-1037 lzbloglogo-1039 lzbloglogo-1040 lzbloglogo-1041

Hello again all! What a perfect evening to photograph this little peanut again :D You may remember her from her previous posts as just born and her newborn official shoot. There is definitely a lot more to her now! Although I keep on remarking how tiny she still is… but so infinitely cute! I just couldn’t stop giggling today which made her giggle more…. then me some more. Such an expressive little baby! Enjoy a little more Alice in your lives :)

{hannah&travis} married! – 8.16.14 – kalamazoo wedding photographer

Halfway over with August and still have plenty of weddings to shoot for the year :D Hannah and Travis were so much fun to work with at their beautiful wedding today. I think my favorite part was when we got to portraits of just the two of them and Travis spoke out so sweetly “I married my best friend!!” and they shared the sweetest moment together. Today was filled with cowboy boots, birds, teal, bow ties, and laughter… and it was amazing. (also, enjoy the small levitation gif!) htbloglogo-1001 htbloglogo-1002 htbloglogo-1003 htbloglogo-1004 htbloglogo-1005 htbloglogo-1006 htbloglogo-1007 htbloglogo-1008 htbloglogo-1009 htbloglogo-1010 htbloglogo-1011 htbloglogo-1012 htbloglogo-1013 htbloglogo-1014 htbloglogo-1015 htbloglogo-1016 htbloglogo-1017 htbloglogo-1018 htbloglogo-1019 htbloglogo-1020 htbloglogo-1021 htbloglogo-1022 htbloglogo-1023 htbloglogo-1024 htbloglogo-1025 htbloglogo-1026 htbloglogo-1027 htbloglogo-1028 htbloglogo-1029 htbloglogo-1030 htbloglogo-1031

{andrea&kyler} married! – 8.8.14 – ann arbor wedding photographer

I don’t think I’ve ever had so much fun at a wedding… so much fun that I had to post my sneak today because I almost immediately fell asleep as soon as I got home! Kyler and Andrea have been Paul and I’s friends for a very long time (Paul and Kyle go back all the way to City High :D) and I was over the moon when they asked me to shoot their wedding. We had a great time all the way back in November for their engagement shoot, and I KNEW that the big day was going to be even better. It’s not every day you get a wedding with an amazing location, a live band, a best man ROCKING out his speech and late night pizza to keep those guests dancing!

{lia&zain} engaged! – 8.5.14 – grand rapids engagement photographer

I get to work with the most beautiful people ever! Seriously, every shot of Lia and Zain tonight was amazing :D We walked and talked around downtown G.R. about houses, jobs, and their wedding in about three and a half weeks. And oh.mi.goodness THANKFULLY the predicted on and off again rain/thunderstorms didn’t cramp our style… I mean the sun even peeked out at the end for some amazing flairs! ( And I was all excited to use my new clear umbrella. Darn! ;P) Anyway, please enjoy their sneak!

August! August is here! Wait… it’s already August? Wow this summer is flying by fast! It only seemed like yesterday when I was meeting Jeni and Kyle about their warm summer wedding back when the roads were covered in ice and snow ruled all. Even their engagement session was so cold and that was in April when it was supposed to be getting warmer! Anyway, Jeni and Kyle had a beautiful wedding over at Thornapple Covenant Church and a roof raising party at Deer Run Golf Club. I’m so glad that the weather stayed perfect for these two to even complete the day in some fun relaxing sun setting photographs. Enjoy!
