Emily & Josh’s Winter Wedding in Marquette

Though most Upper Peninsula residents have some level of appreciation for the snow, the recreation opportunities it affords, and the season of winter in general (it does take over our region for nearly 5 months after all!), not everyone is willing to schedule their wedding in a month where the average temperature is 20 degrees. Saying “I do” at the beginning of January in this Northern town takes a special, adventurous and incredibly close couple who is prepared to put their relationship first, make decisions that suit them, and who isn’t afraid of the challenges life may present them. Emily and Josh were one of the bold couples who exchanged their vows in the midst of a U.P. winter this year, and I am incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to photograph their special day.

Erica & Grant’s Copper Harbor Wedding

I feel incredibly blessed to have had the opportunity to serve dozens of couples on their wedding days, all with a unique story and special place in my heart. Erica and Grant’s kind-hearted and happy-go-lucky personalities made my photographer heart soar. I try to make sure my clients feel loved and taken care of all day, but I left the evening of their wedding, I felt like I was the one who was cared for! I just adore these two and their welcoming, loving selves.

Jenny & Ben’s Adventurous Wedding in Marquette

Several years ago, Ben met Jenny when they were both working on a Marquette, Michigan beach. Ben was a park patrol officer, Jenny a lifeguard for the city. They hit it off instantly and have enjoyed a relationship filled with love, laughter and adventure ever since that day.

Fast forward to August of 2019 when they were married along the shores of the same Great Lake where their love story began. Surrounded by their closest friends and family, these two recited their own heartfelt vows during a ceremony officiated by a lifelong friend of the bride, underneath a stunning white arch that was hand-crafted by the groom.

Our New Home | Lifestyle Family Photography Session

This summer has been crazy busy. Between photographing a half dozen weddings, raising two little kiddos, working full time, Rick changing jobs and all of the other things life has thrown at us, for some crazy reason, we decided to sell our home and buy a new one. We’re definitely insane, right?

Despite all of the stress buying, selling and moving caused us over the past few months, it was so worth it. We finally feel settled in our new Negaunee home and are loving making new memories in this special place.
