I was introduced to Colleen a little over 5 years ago. Steven was working on my computer and  sheepishly mentioned this girl he knew who really loved photography and it might be neat if we met. I wondered if this girl was his girlfriend or just a girl he had a crush on, but I didn’t want to ask since I didn’t know Steve that well at the time. He knew how much she absolutely loved photography and gave her  our business card .Colleen reached out to us and we met and hit it off pretty much immediately. I asked if Steve was her boyfriend and she said she had just recently met him 🙂 She is now our office manager and many of you might recognize her because she is one of our second shooters!

Their relationship IS  the old cliche; the hop in my scotch, the toast to my jam, the icing on my cake. They are the happiest, most genuine, wonderful couples I know. They uplift each other, and support each others dreams. They call each other best friends, and there is no mistaking that they are the kind of couple you look at and say, wow, they are perfect for each other in every way. Your wedding ceremony was the utmost perfection of your love. You both aren’t afraid to show your emotions and you embrace the moment like no other. I love you both and wish you many more days of silliness and laughter and love!

{Pam and Scott} Happily Ever After

September 12th, 2014

I have said that there have been some brides that are completely laid-back, but Pam, you, by far, are my most laid-back bride! You two had such a wonderful, go-with-the-flow personality that made photographing the two of you so easy. One of the best highlights of the day was going to Mr. Freeze after the […]

I have said that there have been some brides that are completely laid-back, but Pam, you, by far, are my most laid-back bride! You two had such a wonderful, go-with-the-flow personality that made photographing the two of you so easy. One of the best highlights of the day was going to Mr. Freeze after the ceremony. Some of the groomsmen took it into their own hands to rearrange the Mr. Freeze sign out front. It was hilarious!  Once the reception started, the dance floor was packed and the night went too fast . You two are quite perfect for each other. Pam, you are beautiful.

Alysha and Josh both live here in Toledo, but the location of their beautiful wedding was Traverse City, MI! I love northern Michigan so when I heard that Alysha and Josh wanted me to photograph their day I was more than excited!! Both the ceremony and reception were on top of a hill on a golf course overlooking Torch Lake. Yeah, awesome!!!  You might think that you are seeing double of the groom and that’s because you are!!  Josh has an identical twin and let me tell you, it was confusing for a while.  🙂  This wedding complete with pictures in the woods and by Lake Michigan, a smores bar, sky lanterns and a beautiful and sweet love for each other, Josh and Alysha had a perfect wedding day and one that I was honored to photograph!

These two… Allyson and Dustin…such a beautiful and sweet couple.  After photographing their engagement I couldn’t wait for their Napoleon, Ohio wedding!  The reception was at a venue I had never been to, The Armory, and it was amazing!  The decor, areas to get ready, large hall for the party, was amazing and a perfect spot for Allyson and Dustin.  We also photographed in downtown Grand Rapids with the VERY LARGE but SUPER fun bridal party.  Allyson, every detail was perfect and your smile was so infectious and lovely all day long.  Wishing you both all the best from JEM!!
