October 5, 2018 Melanie and Nate had the most gorgeous day on a Friday afternoon. It rained a little bit but we took full advantage of the weather. The morning started off at the Amway Grand and shifted to Grand Rapids at the Bob. Everything was so perfect on their special day, and I couldn’t… Read More
I met these two on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Both of these two are such kind hearted spirits who honestly did any thing I told them to do (lol). Their wedding is next year and I cannot wait to see them on their big day.
These troopers met me at 7:45 / 8:00 in the morning on a Sunday at a recent Bride and Groom’s home. Luckily we got the most beautiful sunrise, got photobombed by a friend’s horse, and got some seriously stunner images of these two (and a truck). Next year these two are getting married in the… Read More
September 29, 2018 This wedding was so near and dear to my heart. I met Jess in 2012 at Grand Valley State University. The moment I met her I wanted to be her friend. We had met in some advertising classes, and typically I just went to class, did my work, and didn’t socialize. Jess… Read More

Took some photographs of a girl I love the most.
Grand Rapids, MI. Blaire emailed me as soon as Spencer and her got engaged. I cried. I was ecstatic. The end. (haha) but for real, these two were a trip and I made them do so many awkward things and they did them with stride. Literally, look at Spencer’s face in most of the exciting… Read More
August 18, 2018 Maddie and Phil had one of the most chill, amazing wedding days. The weather was beautiful, and their friends and family were so supportive. These two were so much fun to be around, and their love for one another (and their dogs) was quite contagious. I have way too many favorite images… Read More
Oh dogs. Last week I was able to photograph Dana and Luke and their beautiful dog; Hurley. These puppy parents are incredible. As Hurley is facing health issues and undergoing treatment, they have never left his side and are sticking with him through the battle. Sometimes pet owners give up and get a new dog…… Read More
August 4, 2018 Lauren and Jacob embody the idea of the perfect couple. This couple was so genuinely excited to get married. They met in middle school, and became high school sweethearts. The day went beyond smooth and was filled with so much emotion. Weddings like this just make me exhale joy. From the kick-butt… Read More
Angie and Joel and I met on a Monday evening at the beach. We got to know one another, I made them do some ridiculous stuff, and we chatted about random life events. This year for some reason my December is incredibly busy. The weekend of NYE I have three different weddings, and am SO… Read More

July 21, 2018 Alex & Kate I met Alex a year or two back because we had both worked at the same gym. I always heard about a “Kate” gal, but never met her until later on. One day Alex came up to me in the gym and told me about his plans to propose… Read More
My love for fine-art photography is massive. But it is much different than commercial or documentary (wedding) photography. From the end of July until further notice I have set many dates aside to do more stylized shoots with concept. Since graduating KCAD it is crucial for me to use and exercise what I learned in graduate… Read More
June 30, 2018. Meagan and Zach got married at the Wildwood Manor House in Toledo, Ohio. This place was rich in history and absolutely stunning to walk through. We took advantage of the scenery and used the manor as much as possible for portraits and details. The day was a hot one, but the party… Read More
