Break out your tissues people! While I appreciate so many moments of the weddings I am privileged to capture, it isn’t often that my emotions are affected by what’s going on. There were just so many beautiful moments during Katherine and Tim’s wedding, it was hard not to get caught up in the joy that filled the day. I’ve realized more and more, that what makes me feel like I’ve accomplished a job well done at the end of a wedding day is not that I came up with some amazing pose, but I feel accomplished if I was able to artfully capture real and raw emotion. That being said, I feel pretty accomplished looking at the images from Katherine and Tim’s wedding and here’s just a small sampling.
I love this next photo and I didn’t realize it at the moment I took it, but on the right, you can see Tim’s dad is there, in this moment and in this prayer.
I was so excited to kick off the 2012 wedding season and to do it with such a fun couple. I loved the amount of raw emotion that went on the entire day, from sweet moments between Jessica and her dad to the giddiness in both the bride and the groom moments before the ceremony. One of the sweetest moments had to have been during the maid of honor’s toast. Jessica’s sister Jackie was describing Jessica’s initial hesitation to date Ryan because she was terrified that she could possibly lose her best friend in Ryan. You can’t help but smile looking at these photos and realizing how incredibly happy these two are to spend the rest of their life with their best friend. Congrats guys!

Usually when I arrive on someone’s wedding day and ask the bride how she’s feeling, it’s answered with some sort of hope about the day running smoothly. When I got to Nika’s parents’ house and found her already in her … Continue reading →
Something new for me at Amanda and Justin’s wedding was not actually meeting them face to face until two days before their big day (or at least I couldn’t remember which couple they were at a wedding show). I like … Continue reading →
It might be because I made some of the best memories of my childhood there, but I think there is something almost magical about northern Michigan. Ever since our first meeting, I had been looking forward to Rachel and David’s … Continue reading →
There was so much I loved about Nikki and Shaun’s wedding. Nikki is an art teacher and did such an amazing job hand-making many different parts of her wedding. She had a fantastic vision and did a wonderful job making … Continue reading →
Sometimes I’m taken aback by the fact that I am not only invited to document one of the most intimate and personal days of a couple’s life, but just to even witness that day is an incredibly special thing. Sure, … Continue reading →
Something that I love about each one of my brides is that they all have such different taste. It makes my job so exciting to see the same event done in so many different ways and executed beautifully each time. … Continue reading →
