Sneak Peek: Jason & Krystal (Northern Michigan Wedding Photographer)

October 21, 2017

The last wedding of the year is always a little bittersweet. It's over for another year, and since I sincerely love shooting weddings, it's always a little sad. But this is also the time in photographer land that everyone starts getting a little worn out. And I am definitely that. But as I told Krystal last week, I wanted to go out on a high note with their wedding, and I think we can call it mission: accomplished. Check out this quick sneak and watch for more in the near future!

Josiah & Amber: A Sweet Summer Wedding (Southwest Michigan Wedding Photographer)

September 16, 2017



This summer has been a dream. Not hot, never too cold (except for that random week in August!), but on the weekend of Josiah and Amber's wedding, whoa! It reached the mid to high eighties on a week you would expect cool breezes and sweaters. But we made the most of it. Not one thing could faze this calm and collected couple. Not that there was much to faze them in the first place. The day was gorgeous (despite the heat), the guests were plentiful and the food was delicious.

And all the photos! We had so much time for photos, I could have swooned (or maybe that was from the heat ;). Both Josiah and Amber were up for anything and we were able to explore quite a few outdoorsy spots at Rush Lake Memories.

Most importantly, these two made their wedding day about each other, their families, and God. They made sure to praise God in all things on their wedding day. It was a pleasure to work with such a kind and fun couple and I wish them the very best in their life in the future. And now...
