Candice + Jeff

I met these two one day at a Brewery in Baroda, Michigan. They live in Chicago and I live in Grand Rapids, so we met up in the middle near where they will be getting married. Last weekend I drove to their house, photographed their full family [dogs, hah] and we walked around the city… Read More

Lauren + Jacob

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.

Fine Art / Macy / Pointe

My love for fine-art photography is massive. But it is much different than commercial or documentary (wedding) photography.

Since graduating KCADĀ it is crucial for me to use and exercise what I learned in graduate… Read More

Lil’ Shephard

Throughout my time photographing, I have been able to watch families grow and capture them from the beginning of their existence. Cody and Kristen were a couple that I began to photograph when I initially moved to Grand Rapids. I photographed their engagements, wedding, and then Kristen and I became extremely close. After this, Kristen… Read More
