MCKAY TOWER WEDDING

Grand Rapids, MI
Fountain Street Church
McKay Ballroom, McKay Tower

Congratulations Zac and Elyse! These two are hilarious. They keep me on my toes. The very first time I met them, I knew their sense of humor would bring some fun to their engagement and wedding photos.

These two actually met through Tinder. They were laughing together for two years before Zac proposed, on Maui. His brother lives there, and when they were visiting, he popped the question at sunset. What’s funny is that it had rained the whole trip EXCEPT for that time when Zac proposed. That’s a pretty clear sign, I’d say.

The big day was full of laughter as well. The day started at Hampton Inn and Suites, then on to the ceremony at Fountain Street Church, and the reception at MacKay Ballroom. It was a beautiful March wedding in Michigan! We were grateful for some sun and it felt so good to have some time downtown with the bridal party! Zac and Elyse even snuck away for a few breathers with beautiful scenery along the way.

Mr. and Mrs., thank you so much for choosing me to document your story. Please enjoy the preview:

Senior Portraits Allen Park- Libby

Allen Park, MI

Congratulations Libby!! This gorgeous gal is my family! She is actually coming out to my neck of the woods in August to attend Grand Valley and I couldn’t be happier to celebrate with her, or feed her when she gets sick of Ramen noodles. She plans on going into nursing, and I know she will be amazing and that is a perfect path for her.

We are so proud of you, Libby. This year she had to have some serious strength and determination for overcoming surgeries and getting back on her feet. She is just as lovely on the inside as she is on the outside.
Love you Libby!

Some of these locations are sentimental and meaningful, and I love that we got to include them into her portraits. These are just a few favorites of mine from our session:
