Shannon & Ross | Grand Rapids Public Museum Wedding

Shannon and Ross were wed this past weekend at the Grand Rapids Public Museum downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan. In the middle of an epic heatwave and in between epic thunderstorms they said I do and had an amazing party to follow. We had to quickly escape the impending storm right after the first look but we got some beautiful images right before and even a few with the rain. Thankfully the GRPM is not short on wonderful spots for photos and we had a great time exploring the museum and taking their portraits. Here are a handful of my favorites so far, can’t wait to share the full gallery but hope you enjoy these for now.

Congrats Shannon and Ross!  SSDGM!
