Katie + Matt

Wedding  |  Bay City, MI  |  June 2017

These two  ❤  Let’s just start by saying that when one of your second shooters calls you to shoot her wedding you get a little bit giddy! I was so honored that Katie wanted me to be a part of her big day especially since I know how well she understands all the ins and outs of a wedding day (and is a fabulous second to work with on all fronts).  She and Matt are an infinite amount of fun – as was their wedding party – and despite some touch and go weather, they were both calm and clearly enjoying themselves throughout the day.  The morning was full of beautiful details, sweet gestures, and funny moments that really set the tone for the rest of the day, and I hope for the rest of Matt and Katie’s marriage.  I could go on and on about this couple and what a blast their wedding was, but perhaps it’s better to just let the pictures speak for themselves.  Congrats and much love to the new Mr. and Mrs.

Nick & Carrie

Wedding  |  Mount Pleasant, MI  |  June 2016

Though almost all weddings are wonderful and a blessing to be a part of, this particular day was especially sweet for me. The weather was beautiful (if a little hot), the details and decor were lovely, the guests and bridal party were lively and fun, but the real joy I found in this day was watching one of my oldest college friends marry the love of his life.  I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and watching this couple grow in their relationship from the beginning, and I am so very happy that they’re ready to take on this new life adventure together.  These two laugh often both at and with one another; a sure sign that they have a long and very happy future ahead. I, for one, am excited to see what that future may hold!

Congratulations and thank you for trusting me to be a part of such a beautiful celebration! ❤IMG_0907_blog-1_blog

Summer & Joe

Wedding  |  Mount Pleasant, MI  |  May 2015

Tradition says that rain on the day of a wedding is a good omen — depending on the source, it’s said to be a sign of fertility, renewal, and unity…which is all well and good, unless you’re having an outdoor ceremony in a location without a lot of indoor options.  I have to give this couple props though!  Despite the constant state of drizzle outside, both Summer and Joe were calm and rolled with the last minute changes and adaptations to their plans.  Not that I’m particularly surprised — you may recognize these two from their engagement session last summer — this couple is so grounded in their love for one another. Gorgeous details, an energetic wedding party, and a happy crowd of family and friends helped make the day perfectly lovely despite the weather.  I think it’s an even better omen that we were rewarded at the end of the evening with a gorgeous spread of sunset colors.  Congratulations and here’s to many anniversaries (rainy and otherwise)!
