The summer and fall are perfect times to update your family photos. I could not imagine living in a better place than Michigan to take photographs. The Michigan lakeshore holds a special place in my heart and whenever families or couples would like to head to any of the beautiful beaches for their sessions I get so excited. The Roan family chose Grand Haven to update their family photos with their newest addition to their family. The cuteness was on overload and I definitely got in my baby fix with Baby Emery.

I knew from the moment I met with Emma and Sheldon last summer that they were the most joyful couple in all of West Michigan. Their images reflect just that. The joy that they share when with each other is contagious. Sheldon is patience and thoughtful; but he is also fiercely in love with Emma and adores everything about her. Emma is stunning and her joy beams from her constant smile and laughter.
I was so blessed to capture their intimate wedding in Hudsonville, MI at the Old Wooden Barn. We had access to many beautiful locations on their property, and to be honest, the perfect sunset and weather added to the amazing portraits for this wedding. There are many barn wedding venues in Grand Rapids, MI but I have to see I think the Old Wooden Barn may be one of my favorites. I am so happy that the warm summer is hear because it adds amazing sunsets and light throughout the summer wedding season.
Thank you to all of Emma and Sheldon's friends and family that welcomed me upon arrival and treated me like family throughout the day. As a photographer, it means the world when guests spark up a conversation and thank me for being apart of the day. I hope you enjoy some of my favorite images from Emma and Sheldon's day. Cheers!
I am still booking for fall 2019 dates and all of 2020 please inquire above if you are still looking for a wedding photographer. I would love to talk to you about making your wedding day the most special day of your life and watching your vision come true behind my lens.
Alice and Joe were wed in Holland, MI during Tulip Time which is one of the most beautiful times in the city. Tulip Time is celebrated in May every year and during this celebration the citizens of Holland celebrate their rich heritage in Dutch traditions.
Alice and Joe were marred the Central Park Chapel on the south end of Lake Macatawa and celebrated their reception at City Flats Hotel in downtown. We enjoyed a fun intimate wedding with all their friends that love dancing.
I hope you two are loving married life and thank you for including me in your beautiful wedding day.
When I met with Jon and Taylor last summer to take their engagement photos I instantly got excited for their April wedding. As we began our appointment we sipped on Bell's Oberon and began constructing their wedding timeline. Jon informed me that his large family was Catholic and Polish... suddenly their was a sparkle in my eye! I come from a very large Catholic, and Polish family and I already knew what those adjectives meant... lots of fun!
As I pulled into St. Robert's in Ada, Mi and was greeted by family and friends I instantly felt at home. As their Catholic Mass concluded their were many hugs and loud conversation in the vestibule. I knew that once we arrived at Noto's to begin their reception, their would be the best celebration waiting for us. Jon and Taylor had a stunning 5 tiered wedding cake and decedent dinner for their guests.
During their reception the drinks flowed and we partook in the Polish Grand March - which I had only ever seen at one other wedding. Needless to say Jon and Taylor's wedding was full of family, laughter and fun. As you enjoy some of my favorite images you will notice that the smiles don't leave their faces from the moment I arrive and well after I left. Also, thank you to all their family and friends that welcomed me and made sure that I didn't leave without a hug. Cheers Jon and Taylor and I hope you are loving married life!
