Everything about Mariah and Josh’s wedding was absolutely gorgeous. Also, I’m just going to put it out there….. I personally think September is the absolutely IDEAL month to hold a wedding in Michigan. The temperature is usually perfect, the skies are usually beautiful, and all of the summer flowers tend to still be in bloom. […]

Verdonis/Harris Catering and Event Center Wedding – Muskegon, Michigan – September 28, 2019

Last winter, I got a phone call from my brother’s sister-in-law, who was planning a destination wedding in North Carolina. My sister-in-law had recommended me to her, since they didn’t know who any of the photographers in that area were, and I happily agreed to photograph her wedding! Then, about a month later, I got […]

A Matter of Taste at Tapawingo Wedding Photographer – September 21, 2019 – Ellsworth, Michigan

For this wedding, I was hired to do a bit of a “mini” type package, for about 3 hours. Although I do normally only book full day weddings, I am happy to fit in the occasional shorter package on Friday, Sunday, and the rare date that I still have open within 3 months of the […]

Sojourn Lakeside Resort Wedding Photographer – Gaylord, Michigan – September 7, 2019

Oh this wedding. This had to be one of my most memorable weddings of all time! It seems like all summer it kept raining on the weekends and this particular weekend was no exception! This isn’t a huge deal for anyone that has an indoor wedding venue, but it certainly presents some challenges when you […]

I try to squeeze in at least a couple of trips to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan at least a couple of times a year, so I was so excited to book this one at Pinewood Lodge! Au Train is just a short drive away from Munising and Pictured Rocks so there are lots of […]

Pinewood Lodge Resort Intimate Destination Wedding in Au Train, Michigan – July 27, 2019

I was so excited to do this wedding after meeting this lovely couple earlier in the spring to do their engagement photos! After dealing with rain a couple of weekends prior, it was great to have a nice sunny day for a wedding! The Watermark Country Club turned out to be a beautiful reception venue! […]

Watermark Country Club Wedding – Grand Rapids Michigan Wedding Photography

So I had heard about these gardens from other photographers, so I was super excited when Arianna and Devin let me know they wanted to do their engagement session there as soon as the spring blooms started! Plus, with both of them having different outfits to change into, they were able to get a great […]

Michigan State University Horticulture Gardens Engagement Session – May, 2019

It seems like it was only yesterday that I was photographing Jamelah and Terry’s wedding in Lansing, but it was actually 6 months ago. Where does the time go? Nonetheless, I loved getting to work with the two of them and their little family! I had a little bit of fun too near the end […]
