Groom Details Checklist | Grand Rapids Weddings

My husband once described my photos as “where it’s all about the bride and the groom is just a prop.” But let’s face it, put a group of guys together dressed in sharp suits, it’s pretty hard to ignore! A few weeks ago I shared my list of items for brides to remember on the morning of their wedding, and this week, it’s the guys’ turn! It won’t be as heavy, but here is my Groom details checklist!

Wedding Day Magazine Spring/Summer 2021 Cover Shoot

Back in November, I got a random Instagram message from a florist that I had never worked with before, asking me to take part in a styled session. I was super skeptical because a) I didn’t know this florist and b) the session was like 2 days away! Is this a scam? Am I going to get murdered?? Well, I took a chance and agreed to participate in the Holiday Glam styled session with Alex Nazar Floral and Brittany from 1945 Event Co. I am SO glad I took that chance, because then Brittany asked me to take part in today’s blog post, for the Wedding Day magazine Spring/Summer 2021 cover shoot!!

Fetzer Center March Wedding | Maggie & Jake

Today’s blog post is about Maggie & Jake’s Fetzer Center March wedding on the campus of Western Michigan University! The last wedding I posted, I mentioned how it was the last “normal” wedding. Maggie & Jake got married on March 13, 2020 – also known as Pi Day! It was at this point, we were cautiously proceeding with no clue what was about to happen. The campus already had closed down because there was a couple of cases, but we were still on to get these two married, thank goodness!

40th Anniversary Session | Larry & Teresa

I know the title of today’s post is laid out the same way as all of my other ones, but for this 40th anniversary session, it was a little weird to type out “Larry & Teresa” – because this anniversary session is of my parents! We (try to) have Sunday dinner together with my immediate family every week, and the first weekend in May, it happened to coincide with their anniversary, so my mom called me up and wanted to do something a little special! Of course I had to jump on board!

Meet Jessie

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!
