Riverside Park Engagement

Grand Rapids, MI

Congratulations to Kristyn and Adam! These two met working together at Meijer. They'd been together for about five years when Adam surprised her with the proposal. They were hanging out with family, when in walks her nephew, wearing a shirt that says, "Will you be my uncle?", and "Will you be my aunt?".  Her sister was videotaping the whole thing.

The wedding will be at Sunnybrook Country Club in Grandville this fall, so stay tuned!

We had a glorious fall day, in June, for this session at Riverside. It was breezy and beautiful, strolling around, talking about plans, honeymoons, and Zach Galifianakis (did you see that movie? "Masterminds"-- with the engagement session!? Loved it. I want to pose a couple like that sometime just for fun).

I can't wait for this wedding! Enjoy the preview!

Grand Rapids Art Museum Wedding

Wedding at the GRAM
Grand Rapids, MI

Congratulations Hahyoon and Andrew! This cute couple, with their cute families, cute friends, just cut cute cute. The day was so fun with warm smiling faces all around.

These two met through church while they were in college. They knew each other two years before they actually started dating. After about four years together, they started planning a wedding. Andrew surprised Hahyoon at home one day when he wasn't supposed to be there, with a ring! It was private, quiet, and perfect. They celebrated with wine and string cheese.

Some plans changed for us on the big day, due to a boisterous parade right where the ceremony was supposed to be- with loud generators- so we all adjusted to a new plan, still at the GRAM, which was truly amazing. Nothing could spoil the bigger meaning of this day for Hahyoon and Andrew.

What a beautiful day to celebrate! I am honored that I got to document it. Enjoy the preview!

Founders Brewing Engagement

Grand Rapids, MI
Engagement Session

Congratulations Caitlin and Tara! Their first date was actually at Founders! So, it worked out that we ended up here because of the rain. It was nice, rainy romantic, and as always-great craft beer. These ladies are oh-so-super cute. I loved this session.

They met through work and were together for two years before Caitlin proposed, at the Detroit Zoo, under all the Christmas lights. I know, right?! How beautiful. What's even sweeter is that Tara was planning on proposing as well, and had a ring for Caitlin at home!

We are all excited for their wedding in October of 2018! I photographed Caitlin's sister's wedding.
