{malinda&chad} vows renewed! – 1.31.15 – zeeland wedding photographer

Hello again everyone!


MUCH has happened in the past few weeks since my last post… mainly – Paul and I are moving to NYC! No worries to MI brides though, we will be back many times for weddings and events so please don’t be afraid to ask if we’re available :D


Next in the news! This gorgeous couple’s wedding vows were today and we had the honor of photographing it. It’s always lovely to meet new couples and Malinda and Chad were no different. Their renewed vows were so special and so very heartfelt in the intimate setting of the church and with the friends and family that had attended. Also, we had maybe about 45 minutes scheduled for shots around Zeeland and I wanted more like 3 hours. Around every corner I kept finding new and interesting perspectives, and they were just so giggly and cute that I never wanted to stop!  Here they are a year(ish) later ready to start their new lives again! (For more information to those that don’t know – they had been apart because Malinda was in the Army, and wanted a refresh on everything because they could finally be together again. I think that’s so sweet!) Picture time!

{congratulations.2014} – 1.6.15 – west michigan wedding photographer

A little late for my year end post this year and I’m sorry! I took a few weeks off after completing my end of the season editing for the holiday this year, and it was so incredibly lovely. 2014. What. A. Year. We traveled a lot again (this year to Nashville again, a trip off to Seattle, and some fun in Chicago!) and kept a little more to home. I didn’t second shoot for any fabulous photographers in the area, but I look forward to shooting more with my colleagues this year! 2014 was also full of personal growth, some really fantastic ups, and some extremely unwanted downs. I’ve made some beautiful lifelong relationships with my couples and I really hope that 2015 will be just as amazing. I have attached the sneak post for each of the 20 weddings underneath if you’d like to see more from their wedding day!

As usual I had so many shoots I have to do an abridged wedding version of this post. But here’s a shout out to all the families, engaged couples, and little babies that I got the chance to meet too! Reflecting is one of my most favorite things to do and it was wonderful to leaf through all my shoots while compiling this post! Good luck with the new year to you all!
