All this cold weather and ice has me thinking about summer weddings and the sun. Being a wedding photographer in Grand Rapids, Michigan is slightly gloomy from November through March. Days are short, cloudy and very snowy. I am a summer girl so I am counting down the days until April when the sun peaks out a little more.
Today I decided to share Alyse and Steven on the blog. They tied the knot together last August in Bay City, Michigan. We spent the morning together at Salon Nuveau in the downtown area of Bay City before the ceremony. Alyse and Steven have a large friend group and their bridal party was full of life as they supported Alyse and Steven throughout the day. Alyse and Steven celebrated the night with meaningful toasts, great drinks and tons of dancing at Lumber Barons for their reception. I can't wait for more couples to get married this year and would love to connect with you if you are recently engaged.
If you are still searching for your wedding day photographer please consider me! I love having fun but also being professional and organized to help you day go smoothly. I value couples uniqueness and telling their story. I enjoy natural posing and allowing you and your sweetie to interact naturally through prompts and movement that will surely make you roar with laughter. If you are interested, you can inquiry about your wedding day above under "Inquiries" Cheers!
Engagement session is upon us and many couples are buying rings, planning proposals and wondering how they are going to select the ideal venue to say, "I do." A photographer should be one of the first things that you are considering. When seeking a photographer it is important to keep in mind what parts of your wedding day you would like to have photographed.
You should also think about your timeline, if you would like a first look with your fiancé and approximately what your budget will be. All of these things will give you a clear idea of your expectations and also what kind of experience you are looking for a photographer to give you on your special day. I also always connect with my couples in person or over video chat first. We get a time to drink coffee and talk about your vision for your day. It is important for me to connect on a personal level and hear what your specific needs are and what is important to you. As a potential client, I always want my couples to feel really good about choosing me for their special day and feel comfortable asking any questions they may have.
I am finally getting caught up on blogging some of my sessions from this summer and fall. Sheldon and Emma are high school sweethearts and will be getting married this upcoming year in Hudsonville, MI. Their engagement session was full of laughs and they naturally just fell into each other's arms during our session and made my job so easy! We started their engagement in downtown Holland, MI to get a few formal images and then chased the sun to a local Lake Michigan beach for a breathtaking few and a beach to ourselves.
Sheldon and Emma were up for anything to be able to get amazing images, which is a photographer's dream. When I suggested getting into the 30 degree water they agreed! We all got into the water and captured beautiful images as the sunset over Lake Michigan. I can't wait to capture Emma and Sheldon's wedding this summer and be by their side as they say I do.
If you are recently engaged I would love to connect with you and find time to get together and talk about your special day.
