Portrait Archives - Grand Rapids Wedding Photographer

Few things could be more romantic than a “just married” portrait session in a Michigan summer lavender field. We have had our eye on Shades of Lavender Farm near Kalamazoo, Michigan and this was the perfect opportunity to explore it. The lavender field was just starting to bloom which was the perfect setting for two […]

West Michigan Engagement Session Locations

Belle Isle Detroit engagement sessions are some of our favorites. It’s truly a magical place. On Belle Isle, summer comes in her own time. She drifts in on a spring wind over the Detroit River, wakening with a soft warmth that washes over everything and takes root with weeds and grasses in the cracks of […]

You might think that a desert-inspired engagement session would involve a cruel sun beating down with its harsh rays, searing sands, and the air heavy with heat.

Grand Haven Beach Engagement Pictures

We always have fun on shoots but we weren’t expecting just how much Molly and Steve’s Grand Haven Beach engagement pictures would be. First off, they brought their adorable French Bulldog, Leo. He stole our heart and reminded us of our favorite Frenchie, Wentz, from Taylor and Ricky’s Holland beach engagement. Leo did so well […]

In Michigan, there is a turning point in the weather when something in the air changes from winter to spring. It’s hard to describe exactly what changes. Maybe it is the sunshine or the slightly warmer weather, but something just feels…different. Everything feels more alive, more vibrant, and more exciting, like the feeling when something […]

Le Bon Macaron Engagement

After our honeymoon in Paris, we love all thing French and Parisian. When we learned that Lindsay and Johnny wanted to do their engagement session at Le Bon Macaron in Grand Rapids, to say we were excited was an understatement. Oddly, Le Bon Macaron wasn’t on our radar until Lindsay brought it up. However, it […]

The venue is so beautiful yet versatile for almost any shoot, from the most elegant wedding to Yennie and Khanh’s warm and cozy engagement session. When we met with Yennie, she wanted to do her engagement pictures […]
