THE BLOG

Always so fun to get to know my wedding clients better before their big day. Engagement sessions play a big part in getting to know each other better and how we work together. I so enjoyed getting to know Jessica and Dexter better during while taking their MSU campus engagement photos. The couple told many great stories of their time here. It was a fun day chatting about beer and television, my two most favorite things after my kiddos and photography. I can’t wait for the wedding! So thankful you found me Jessica and Dexter!

This was a amazingly fun wedding to be a part of! Emily and Nate are both incredibly cool people and they put on an lovely Goei Center wedding. The details of the day were personal , sweet and beautifully done. The special first look included a surprise serenade to the bride, not a dry eye in the house.  I LOVED their table cards and decor details. They had the ever awesome Cakabakery for their sweets table and the super duper amazing AB for the days music. And if all this wasn’t enough she stunned us all in her gorgeous BHLDN dress…it was magical. Can we do it again Emily and Nate?!?

This beautiful fur wrap was found the day before the wedding. It belongs to the Bride’s grandmother and matched her gown perfectly and was a welcome addition on the very chill snowy day. 002_goei-center-wedding003_goei-center-wedding004_goei-center-wedding005_goei-center-wedding006_goei-center-wedding007_goei-center-wedding

This was such a delightful event to cover! Anna’s Bat Mitzvah was held at Temple Emanuel in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The service was not to be photographed so you won’t see any of that here… I was able to film it and that was fun! Here are some of the portraits of the day and the fun party that followed. Anna is big into theater and stared in many roles already, her party reflected her love of  the stage. It was a blast! Congrats again to Anna, you did an amazing job!

Had a lovely time downtown Grand Rapids this brisk fall afternoon capturing Shelby and Kyle’s engagement photos. I’m excited to work with them again this coming June for their English Inn wedding! Here are a few favorites from their session.
