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.

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.
