Best of 2018: Weddings & Love Stories

It’s hard to believe that it’s the middle of November and I’m already assembling a “Best of” post for 2018. Seriously, where did this year go?! 2018 was filled with so many special memories and blessings for me, both personally and professionally.

I invite you to grab a cup of your favorite beverage, sit back and enjoy this collection of all of the beautiful people (inside and out) that I got to photograph this year!

Katie & Caleb’s Lakeside Destination Wedding

Katie and Caleb are this wonderfully kind and thoughtful couple who reached out to me this past summer about photographing their destination wedding in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. At the time, they were living out near Tacoma, Washington, where Caleb was stationed with the Army. They had been dating for nearly a decade, and they were making plans to finally tie the knot in their home state of Michigan.

Kimberly & Ian’s Elegant Lakeside Wedding

Kimberly and Ian are seriously such an adorable couple. The hashtag #relationshipgoals just has to have something to do with them! Even though they’ve been together for 10 years, they look like two kids who just fell madly in love. I absolutely could not get enough of their complete adoration and respect for each other. It was such an honor to have the opportunity to get to know them and be a part of this chapter in their epic love story.
