PERSONAL

I knew Genna and Nolan in high school. If you would have asked me who was “most likely to get married” it would be them. If you would have asked me who was “most likely to become a Grand Rapids engagement photographer” I would have hoped it’d be me! Well I guess we both won because these two are finally tying the knot and I get to capture it! We picked an absolute perfect day for doing photos, and it was so fun catching up.

The Session

Genna and Nolan weren’t too sure where they wanted to do their photos. Understandable since there are so many amazing places! I asked them if they’d be willing to come up to Grand Rapids from Kalamazoo. They were totally down and we picked Provin Trails! This park is massive and full of amazing spots for photos. Plus it’s dog friendly, a plus for their sweet pup! When we first got there we walked into the park a bit before getting some photos with them and their furry family member. Once we got some good photos with Oliver he hung out in the car for a  little bit. Don’t worry, the air was on and he was jamming to his favorite music!

We walked a bit more and really got to go to the best places in the park. I was so happy they trusted me to be creative and pick some good spots. It’s been a fun season of life for me to see people I know getting married. In fact, most of my weddings for next year are friends! It makes my job super fun and easy because I already know so much about them! I think knowing your photographer can really help you open up and be more comfortable!

I’m so excited to get to work with these two in January! They will be my first wedding for next year and I’m pumped! And if you need a Grand Rapids engagement photographer hit me up! Booking season is right around the corner!

One of the best things about having friends who are also photographers is getting to do fun little projects! This shoot was basically me just tagging along with Sydney Marie Photography while she worked with my other friend Chloee for a shoot. It was so refreshing not having to create images for anyone but myself and it’s something I definitely want to make time for more this year. I played around with some editing and focus that I don’t normally do and I’ll be honest I LOVE it! Y’all might see some more grainy black and whites this year. Anyway, here are some of my favorites!

Winnie and Eric are adventurers through and through! They met at MSU and wanted to go back to the place that held so many memories for their engagement photos. When Winnie told me how much time they spent hanging out on parking garages I knew we were going to get along (it was my favorite high school activity in Kalamazoo). During our time together we walked a big chunk of Michigan State campus, might have only slightly trespassed, and got some awesome shots on their bikes. Biking is another huge part of their love, I mean they spent months biking out to California and back. I’m so happy I was able to capture them in their element and will have these photos as they enter this exciting chapter of their lives together.

Jade and Kevin wanted a mix of modern and elegant for their spring engagement photos! These two are tying the knot in October and this session got me so excited to work with them. Initially worried about not being comfortable in front of the camera, they warmed right up and were a dream to photograph. It’s always the people who are worried that seem to do the best! The GRAM provided a neutral and modern backdrop that they really wanted, it’s one of my favorite places to photograph in Downtown Grand Rapids. For the second half of the session we went to Riverside park, a gorgeous a huge park that offers a ton of variety for photos. I’m so happy with these and cannot wait to work with Jade and Kevin later this year!

Emily and Ang have quite the epic love story, and while I won’t give it all away (that’s for their wedding blog post) the emotions and connection these two have is electric. After 10 years of growth, thousands of miles apart, and lots of love, these two are tying the knot! This session was quite unique because this session was photographed 4 days before their wedding! With Ang flying in from Australia it made the schedule a bit tight, but that just means I get to spend a whole week with them. So be on the lookout for their wedding photos coming super soon! In the meantime, enjoy this sweet engagement session at PJ Hoffmaster State Park, and how cute is their sweet pup?! LGBTQ Same Sex Engagement Session Grand Rapids Michigan Photographer LGBTQ Same Sex Engagement Session Grand Rapids Michigan Photographer LGBTQ Same Sex Engagement Session Grand Rapids Michigan Photographer LGBTQ Same Sex Engagement Session Grand Rapids Michigan Photographer LGBTQ Same Sex Engagement Session Grand Rapids Michigan Photographer LGBTQ Same Sex Engagement Session Grand Rapids Michigan Photographer LGBTQ Same Sex Engagement Session Grand Rapids Michigan Photographer LGBTQ Same Sex Engagement Session Grand Rapids Michigan Photographer LGBTQ Same Sex Engagement Session Grand Rapids Michigan Photographer LGBTQ Same Sex Engagement Session Grand Rapids Michigan Photographer LGBTQ Same Sex Engagement Session Grand Rapids Michigan Photographer LGBTQ Same Sex Engagement Session Grand Rapids Michigan Photographer LGBTQ Same Sex Engagement Session Grand Rapids Michigan Photographer LGBTQ Same Sex Engagement Session Grand Rapids Michigan Photographer LGBTQ Same Sex Engagement Session Grand Rapids Michigan Photographer

This little snuggly guy made a surprise entrance into this world and has been stealing hearts ever since. Melissa and Matt welcomed Rowan who was a champion eater, breather, and everything else he needed to be doing while in the NICU. His stay didn’t last long and he was able to be home for his first Christmas, something his parents wanted very much. He’s got a little bit of daddy in him but looks like his momma in most ways. Rowan was such a champ during photos and I’m so grateful I was able to do this session. Especially since I have a track record of mom’s going into labor the same weekend we plan on doing maternity photos haha! I’m so thankful for them allowing me to document this exciting new chapter in their lives!

When it’s super cold a blustery but you want a cozy green engagement shoot in Grand Rapids, you go to Meijer Gardens! Ashley and Josh are getting married here next June and wanted to get snuggly here for their engagement photos too! The lovely thing at MG is that there are tons of rooms filled with so much variety of plants and flowers. They have a large tropical room, cacti, victorian, and even had their holiday display up. It gets pretty busy but we went early and missed some of the crowds!

After being inside we trekked through the freshly fallen snow and went out to the spot where their ceremony will take place. I loved being able to be in that space with them as they get excited about their wedding. Ashley went to Kendall and is now an art educator and her sweet personality is so perfectly matched! Josh was actually the one who reached out to me and I absolutely LOVE when grooms are a huge part of the planning process! His organized and cheerful personality is such a perfect compliment to Ashley!

Needless to say these two were a blast to work with and I’m beyond excited to shoot their intimate wedding in just a few short months! Next time there just won’t be any snow 😉

This sweet couple contacted me to do their engagement photos and I was pumped! Their love story centers around Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, MI so we trekked through campus at sunset on the most perfect fall day. Their sweet pup tagged along and we actually managed to get her to cooperate a little! I’m so bummed that I can’t photograph their wedding but I know it’ll be the most perfect celebration! We had tons of fun and I’m so excited to watch them grow through marriage.

Lindsey and Nick wanted a quick mini session with their sweet pups for a Christmas Card photo! These two braved the cold, rather fashionably I might add, and we snagged some great ones. The energy they all had made it super easy to work with them and I love anytime I get to hang out with furry friends too! I think they probably had a tough choice picking just one for their card.

Mycah and Kyle radiate joy and love. From the minute I met them their connection was obvious and I was so excited that they were down to get cold and snowy and hang out at the tree farm! I’d been wanting to do a tree farm session forever, especially with Michigan snow that makes it so perfect! These two are tying the knot next October and I’m especially pumped because Mycah is my best friend’s twin! So now that we’ve officially met and worked together I can say that all the good things I heard about these two are totally true. Kyle’s rugged personality matches Mycah’s sweet  disposition and I am so excited to watch them walk down the aisle. All I have to say is these two made the bitter cold totally worth it!
