Sneak Peek: Tory & Krysten

July 16, 2016

I could NOT believe how gorgeous a day it was (and by gorgeous I mean not ungodly hot and humid!). And I'm so glad we found ourselves some awesome willow trees for Tory and Krysten's portraits this past weekend. These two are crazy in love and I can't wait to get into the for real editing, but for now, just a quick sneak for those who can't wait quite that long!

Mike & Autumn: A Colorful Wedding (Grand Rapids Wedding Photographer)

June 4, 2016

Time to FINALLY blog the very first wedding of my regular wedding season this year. WAYYY back in June, Mike and Autumn were married at the always beautiful Fredrick Meijer Gardens. This venue is amazing because even if the weather isn't 100% cooperative (it wasn't!), there are still so many awesome locations to photograph!

Though we were able to get Mike and Autumn outside for quite a few photos beforehand, including an adorable first look, we were able to retire to the greenhouses for most of the other shots when the rain started sprinkling in the area. The colors are so amazing, especially on cloudy days like this so I'm not mad about it.

It was a bit sad that the wedding couldn't take place at the beautiful waterfall ceremony location, but Mike, Autumn and I were able to get out there for a few shots before the reception started, so again, not mad about it ;) It was a pleasure to work with Mike's family again, as I first met this crew back in October last year when he's sister, Adrianna, married Scott at the Bay Pointe Inn. It was great to see this fun group of people again!
