Last post for the week!! I cannot stop thinking about how much these past few shoots were and I’m so excited to post these last set of sneak images for the week. Chelsea and Ben (oh and Rudy their ((if I remember right)) 10+ yr old pup!) were SO much fun to walk around and photograph. Rudy was seriously one of the best dogs I’ve ever gotten the pleasure to photograph, as he was such a good sitter and * usually * looked at the camera without any help! It almost felt like it was a Rudy shoot for the first half until we all realized …. oh right we’re not doing this for you little dog! Chelsea and Ben were just fantastic and just so relaxed it made the session feel like it was over so quickly (in reality I think we talked so much it extended to almost three hours… whoops!). We started out at the blue pedestrian bridge (their ceremony space this July – Uhhhhh AMAZING) and we walked almost all the way back around and ended in the space below 131 with some dreamy golden hour light. I am so excited to shoot their wedding this July and you’ll soon see why in these images! (also, be on the lookout for them in GIF form doing the wave… because it’s going to be totally awesome)
Oooh you all, I’ve been SO excited and waiting in such anticipation to share this wedding with you ALL week and I finally get to! Genny and Tim started my wedding season off with one of the most perfect weddings ever! The weather was sunny and warm, the light in their venue was GLOWING, and they and their friends and family were fantastic and fun.
Genny and Tim were so much fun during their engagement session, Paul and I just knew that the wedding was definitely going to follow suit. Both their ceremony and reception were held at one of my favoritest places ever – The Cheney Place downtown Grand Rapids. If you’ve never been here, let me just tell you, I could probably shoot their for 40 hours and STILL have stuff that I haven’t gotten yet. The mix of old warehouse with classic vintage furniture are to die for, and as I previously stated the large windows let in the most gorgeous diffused light. Genny and Tim’s styling matched up perfectly with the whole feel of their space and their travel theme added another touch of vintage flair. It’s not often we have a couple so laid back that they talk to each other in person before the first look (okay she was still in normal clothes, but still!!) and it set such a relaxed ‘chill’ tone for the whole day. I think I said how amazing everything was about one billion times plus one, but seriously, take a look for yourself!
