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.

Mallory & Patrick’s Blush, Cream & Navy Wedding

I have been looking forward to photographing Mallory and Pat’s wedding since last fall when I first met them. The second we met on that Lake Superior beach for their engagement session, I knew that they were going to be two of the most fun-loving, kind and special clients I’ve ever had the pleasure of serving. They share a love that’s so honest, fun and real that it just makes you happy to be in their presence. From the start of their engagement session to the end, they were laughing the whole time. Their wedding day was no different.
