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!

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 :)
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!)
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!
One last thing! You’ll notice that they had us host a photobooth! Free downloads are available here!
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!
