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

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
June 16, 2019 Nicholle and Ted got married a few weeks back and I can’t get over how perfect their day [and sunset] was. The entire day was filled with laughter, fun photographs, and genuine emotions. These two were so fun to be around, and their images definitely show it. I have a bad habit… Read More
June 9, 2018 Katie + Kenzie After working in the wedding industry for awhile, it’s safe to say that most of us get numb to emotions on wedding days. I realize emotions are a huge part of the day, and it is my job to capture them, but typically I do not get emotional myself.… Read More
June 8, 2018 Rach and Jake Rach and I have known each other for a bit over two years. She works at a salon (Launch Salon) in Grand Rapids, and the owner and I have had some history. Therefore, I was adopted into their family, as Rach was mine (not literally.. but a business family,… Read More

June 3, 2018 I didn’t know these four when we met up, but I’m glad I got to meet them. I only take a handful of families during my year because my schedule is incredibly packed. This family was full of joy, life, and a puppy (equivalent, lol). Here are some of my favorites.
I photographed this family last Friday ❤ Adam and Lauren were a bride and groom of mine several years back – and I kind of hoped they would have adopted me as their own by now because they are the coolest people I’ve ever met. Finn doesn’t know he’s basically stuck with me forever. I… Read More
