St. Mary Catholic Church & Ballroom at Mckay Wedding | Katy & Bobby

It was a cold and dreary day, but that didn’t stop Katy & Bobby from having the time of their lives! This wedding was such a dream for me, because not only do I love a good Catholic wedding, it was at the stunning Ballroom at Mckay right downtown Grand Rapids! Add on the bride and groom’s large and loving families, and it’s the recipe for a perfect wedding day!

Grand Ravines October Engagement | Colbie and Jake

It has certainly been a crazy year to say the least! But I am SO excited to finally get back to shooting weddings! Colbie and Jake are getting married this weekend so it’s time to share their Grand Ravines October engagement session! We almost postponed this session due to impending rain and dark clouds (you know how I love my sunshine!) but we decided to give it a try anyway and see how far into the session we’d get before we got wet. I am SO glad we didn’t try to reschedule because I had an AWESOME time with these two!

West Lake Nature Preserve Engagement | Maggie and Jake

2020 rolls on with another wedding this weekend! Maggie and Jake are from Kalamazoo so this West Lake Nature Preserve engagement session was perfect for them! It was a rainy day so we weren’t sure how the weather would hold out, but the clouds parted and we decided to give it a go! The only downside was we were basically shooting in a swamp in the entire time haha! But Maggie and Jake still smiled and laughed even though our feet were absolutely soaked! They did a great job of hiding the fact that we took home half the water in our shoes!

For real, your pets are always welcome at my sessions. I love it!

I’m obsessed with cats, the color purple, and weddings! I absolutely love photographing weddings, and I love having fun with it. I know that having your photos taken isn’t the most exciting thing, but it’s my main focus to make sure you have fun every step of the way! Easy, natural posing, and a lot of awkward jokes help me to get the true happy in-love best version of you!
