Jennie & Jordan | WMU Kalamazoo Wedding

This day and this couple, so much goodness. I have had the pleasure of photographing two other couple’s in this circle of family and I was so thrilled to see them all at Jennie and Jordan’s wedding this past weekend. Jennie and Jordan have such a joy for life and love for one another, I’m so grateful I was there to be a part of it. The whole day was full of sweet moments a few of my favorites that come to mind…

\\When taking Jennie to the first look she was all but sprinting, I had to tell her to slow down so I could get in place, she was pretty excited to see her honey!

\\Jordan has some pretty remarkable Zoolander modeling poses, we all enjoyed that revelation.

\\The sweet flower girl got ahold of the mic during toasts and was so heartbroken to find out she wasn’t going to be able to MC the rest of the evening. It was adorable.

Now for some pretty pictures of people in love.


I cannot get over how cute these are. Grandma’s giggle was intoxicating!

Last shot of the night a double exposure!
Congrats Jennie and Jordan! I’m so happy for you both and can’t wait to share all your images with you!
