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.

Stanley | A Companion Farewell | Marquette, Michigan

Stanley, a 14 year old Yorkie Poo, was a faithful and loving friend to Alyssa and her family for the better part of her life. On September 2, 2016, the Erspamers bid farewell to their longtime canine pal. I was fortunate enough to capture Stan’s last evening with his caregivers in some of his favorite locals, doing what he loved to do most. There were so many snuggles, kisses and loving interactions between the playful pooch and the people he loved most on this final night.
