Up in SW Michigan this weekend for an engagement session in Grand Rapids tonight and a wedding in South Haven tomorrow! I'm staying in Holland (thanks to the wonderful @tori_ewald) so I couldn't help but swing by Pillar Church! Can't wait to photograph @sarahneil93 & Justin's wedding here in July!
This is why I love my job. I can speak from experience that your wedding day goes by so fast that your memories are a blur, so I take everything in on your wedding day with extra intentionality. In a photo like this, I hope to bring the emotion and the memories flooding back, allowing you to relive your day over and over. So you can always remember that just married feeling.
In case you missed it, Hannah & Vilppu's garden inspired backyard wedding is on the blog! Link in profile. (See some of my favorites in my story!)
A pretty accurate depiction of Hannah & Vilppu's personalities.
I would say that Bailey is the happiest bride I've ever seen, but truth be told, she may just be the happiest person I've ever seen. These two radiative joy and love and generosity, and it was so good to be able to serve a couple that's always serving other people. I sent off their gallery this morning and I'm *still* not done gushing over her flowers!
I have such a soft spot for bride & groom portraits that I usually choose them for sneak peeks, but I just love the way this colorful bridal party came together! The bride's mom actually made those tulle bridesmaid skirts (and the bridal gown!) for this backyard wedding. Such a sweet day!! #vilyoumarryme
He loves his first coffee of the day. I love being outside. We love mornings together.
