A Family Through The Years // 2016 – 2019

I've had the distinct honor of taking photos for the Van Drunen family at their house every spring starting in 2016. Completely undirected - Rachel, Lucas, Asher, Iris and Juniper have let me into their home and try my best to document life as it's happening. In 2016 there were only two kiddos - and…

The Children’s Home Project in Honduras // April 2019

If there is one gift that carrying a camera has given to me - it's the introduction to the community of The Children's Home Project in Honduras. No matter how hard I try - my time spent there has broke open and changed my heart forever. I've met some of my best friends - the…

Downtown Grand Rapids Engagement Session

Lauren and Lucas are the kind of people who when they get in front of a camera, their nervousness translates to the cutest most authentic reactions with each other. They were constantly holding hands, bumping into each other and wrapping each other in big giant hugs. My favorite thing about documenting couples is seeing the…

Silver Lake Sand Dunes Engagement Session

Laura and Austin picked me up in Austin's amazing giant red truck and I squeezed between their two daughters (greyhounds) named Sasha and Rita. We had the most incredible night at Silver Lake Sand Dunes. It was the kind of summer night that you knew you had to cherish because fall was right around the…

Orchard Lake Country Club Wedding

Paige and Taylor treated me with the kind of love and kindness that you treat someone you've known your whole life. Their wedding day was a celebration of love and selflessness and I've never seen two people truly move together as a team quite like these two. I told Paige's Dad that I felt like…

2018 in Photographs

I don’t even know if the world looks at these blog posts anymore - but I know that I do. Every year I take a week to sit at my computer, go through every shoot I did in the year, think that my work is amazing, think that my work is garbage, slam my computer…

Camp Blodgett Weekend Wedding on Lake Michigan // Mary & Chris

Chris and Mary are the perfect example of what can happen when you decide to make a wedding your own. Who says you can't spend all weekend sleeping in cabins with your closest friends and family? Who says that instead of waking up at 8:00am for hair and makeup, you can spend your wedding morning…

The Masonic Wedding // Detroit, MI

Valerie and Kile's day was an overflow of emotions and unique style. I feel so lucky to have been a part of this day - and highly recommend that you watch the wedding film that Clark Motion Picture Co made. He is one man with multiple cameras who won't force you to stage anything about…

Luna GR // Grand Rapids, MI Wedding

Laura and Tyler's wedding at Luna in Grand Rapids was the perfect example of how a wedding can be simple but yet still one thousand percent meaningful. Their day was shorter than most, focusing on the parts that mattered to them, and I met them in a parking lot before they saw each other for…

New Mexico Museum of Art Wedding // Santa Fe, New Mexico

Casey and Chris asked me to join them in Santa Fe (one of their favorite cities) for one of the most special weddings I've ever documented. Immediately following their ceremony, the couple, along with everyone in attendance paraded through the Santa Fe downtown square to music. Everyone cheered for them, sang to them and took…
