Ringo and Jillian’s wedding at Windmill Island in Holland Michigan could not have been more fun, mostly because the two of them are simply wonderful people who know how to have a good… no make that a GREAT time! What a celebration! Ringo and Jillian traveled all the way from the Phillipeans to tie the knot on Windmill Island in Holland Michigan and these are just a few of my favorite wedding photos from their day!

Ringo and Jillian also rented the photo booth for their reception and their guests took full advantage of it all night long… It was hard to tell who had more fun, the kids or the adults! Between the dancing, the sparklers, and the photo booth it was one unforgettable night! Congratulations to the happy couple! We had a great time and are so glad we could be a part of your wonderful celebration!

Just a few of my favorites from an incredibly beautiful wedding we shot last fall in Chicago. Bridal party photos were done at North Avenue Beach and Union Station prior to the wedding ceremony at Saint Alphonsus Catholic Church. There’s so much I love from this wedding and I

Work should’t be this much fun… but it is! I had a chance to hang out with the Luther family last fall and we took some pictures pictures in the studio and then out in grand mere were the fall colors were still beautiful. We kept the pictures short and sweet in each location partly because it was cold out but also because lets face it kids don’t have much attention span and we we try to work WITH that as opposed to combatting it. All in all I think we got some great shots and Emily couldn’t possibly be any cuter!

Just found these awesome silhouette engagement photos we did last year while digging through my computer for something else… I loved this engagement shoot! We were way out in the dunes in Grand Mere Michigan with all this camping gear and ended up shooting all sorts of stuff in the dark! We actually hiked out there just before the sun began to set and set up a whole bunch of different pictures but these are a few of my favorites! There’s just something fun about a beautiful silhouette! I wish I could take credit for the cool props but that was the brides idea… she’s another photographer (an awesome one) and she’s just really creative like that! It’s always great when a couple brings their own ideas to

a shoot and we can go to a location that other people have been to and still find a way to make the shot personal! It doesn’t always take a whole lot of thought or creativity either, just tie the locations to places that mean something to you, or incorporate an activity that you love, or come up with your own twist on a shot or location you love! The more fun you have with it the better the pictures will be! Oh but a word to the wise… if you’re going to bring a ton of camping gear out into the middle of the dunes and build a camp fire, and then hike back in total darkness… bring extra help, preferably someone really strong who doesn’t mind climbing giant sand hills blind while carrying rope, sleeping bags, lanterns, firewood, an axe, coffee mugs, and… I can’t remember all the other stuff we brought!! Thank goodness for Uncle Danny!

One of the wedding trends we saw a lot more of this past year were Paper Lanterns being lit and set off after wedding receptions. While it’s obviously a breath taking thing to behold, especially if you’ve never witnessed dozens of paper lanterns drifting up the into the night there are a couple of very important things to keep in mind. First, these things are weather dependent!! They just won’t fill with hot air if there’s much more than a gentle breeze so be prepared to scratch the idea if the weather isn’t

co-operating. Second they are a FIRE HAZARD!!! Check which way the wind is blowing and be considerate, no one wants a flaming lantern to land on a building or get caught in a tree like they did at this wedding reception! =) Also, be sure to check with the venue where you’re getting married if you want to set these things off, some venue’s will allow it while others do not or simply cannot due to certain town/county restrictions. Finally, remember these things end up in other peoples back yards, in farm fields, and in lakes, there are sky lanterns that are completely biodegradable and then there are those that aren’t if at all possible, try to find sky lanterns that won’t cause a problem down the road for someone else! Obviously if everything works out like it did at this Willow Harbor Wedding you’re going to have a great time and we’re going to capture some incredible pictures but you might want to come prepared with a back up plan like sparklers… Just in Case!! =)

This is one of my favorite shots from Brent & Amanda’s winter engagement shoot which we shot in an apple orchard of all places! Talk about a beautiful location for some winter photos, we certainly got lucky having some of the apples and leaves still on the trees! I can’t wait to post more from this fun portrait session on the farm! A couple quick tips for those of you considering a winter engagement session: look for colorful locations, prioritize your favorite spots first, warm up frequently, and a cute coat goes a long way in making any winter session a success!

    Winter Engagement Photos | Chicago IL - […] Winter engagement sessions can be a lot of fun, but when you have a winter as cold and brutal as the one we’ve had in Chicago this year it makes it a bit of a challenge to find that “perfect time” to take your engagement photos. Some times you just have to GO FOR IT, and thats exactly what Bryan & Stephani did, we braved the frigid temperatures and brutal lakefront wind chill, and ended up with some beautiful pictures… and ok maybe a little frost bite? But hey it was for a great cause and in the end it just makes it all that much more memorable! […]

A couple quick tips for getting great shots of little kids at the studio. First, timing is everything, it’s best to schedule your pictures for a time when your kids aren’t normally hungry or tired. You know your kids best and we’re flexible so we will rely on you for what time you think will work best. Once here it helps to HAVE HELP!! An extra set of hands goes a long way when you’re trying to photograph more than one child,

especially if the kids are mobil and love to explore new places. Finally we’re not above bribery, bring snacks, a favorite toy, or some sort of noise maker you think might help grab your childs attention at a key moment for a picture. Of course the best laid plans rarely go as planned so be prepared for that possibility as well and rest assured, if we need to reschedule we certainly can! =)

This past fall we had the opportunity to photograph one of the newest venues in the area, Hidden Vineyards Wedding Barn. This rustic barn is set out in the countryside overlooking a small lake and the vineyards. The beautiful setting is just the beginning though, this newly renovated barn features a huge bridal suite, an area for the groomsmen to get ready, a large deck for guests to mingle and plenty of space for guests to have a great time! We’re definitely looking forward to shooting out here for years to come!

Another wonderful barn wedding at the Blue Dress Barn in Southwest Michigan. Trish and Adam had the perfect summer day for a wedding at the Blue Dress Barn, the weather co-operated, and every detail was picture perfect thanks to Element Event Design. We love shooting here because no two barn weddings are ever the same, whether it’s the layout or the decorations, or the way the grounds have changed over time this is truly a great place to get married if you’re looking for something rustic and unique!

One question I’m asked all the time is “where should we take our pictures?” People know they want to do pictures outdoors but aren’t sure WHERE to do them. The beach is an obvious choice but what if you want to mix things up? My suggestion for picking a great location for family pictures is to look for places that are flexible! What makes a location flexible you ask… Room to roam

so we can take advantage of whatever the light is doing, different structures like bridges or boardwalks can be great for photos as well! I love fields with tall grasses, forests, old buildings, big barns… the more you have to work with the better! Ultimately you want to look for diversity so we have options, this is especially important when shooting little kids who have short attention spans. Some of our favorite pictures happen in between locations as kids burn off energy, have fun, and just explore!

What a great barn for a wedding reception, the Blueberry Dune Farm has a great barn and tent set up for wedding receptions and we were lucky enough to be there to celebrate with Mike & Leah! At the end of the night we snuck out for a few minutes and got some really beautiful photos around the farm in the moon light as the mist rolled in! What an awesome way to end a great day!

The Felt Mansion in Saugatuck, Michigan is a photographers dream! With Ted and Sarah, we found endless creative opportunities for great shots throughout the historic mansion and elegant gardens. Bridal prep was in the impressive master suite, dinner was upstairs and many of our best bridal party photos were done in the surrounding gardens or utilizing the beautiful architecture.


The combination of a fantastic venue and wonderful people made for a truly memorable event. Congratulation to the bride and groom!

We had our photo booth out at Millcreek Barns tonight to help celebrate Ashley and Jakes wedding! What a beautiful night for a wedding reception out at the barn! We were able to tie in the brides lace & burlap theme with our bunting and use the outside of the barn as a backdrop.

I know we all probably have the same reaction when we see this for the first time but don’t worry the chair was OK!!! =)

Even the little kids were having a blast! I just wish I had had more time to do some more pictures myself! It was so great to meet you and your work is beyond excellent! Wish we could do it over again.

The groom waits alone in the rain on Michiana Shores Beach while his bride makes her way towards him for the Reveal on their wedding day. This popular wedding day tradition is sometimes called a “Reveal” or “First Look” and it’s a great way to capture some truly special moments between a bride and groom. Congratulations to Brooke & Joel! Thanks for braving the weather and allowing me to capture this moment for you!

While tradition might scare some couples away from a wedding day reveal there are several reasons it’s worth considering. Doing a first look allows you get more pictures done before the ceremony, which frees up time after the ceremony for you to enjoy the cocktail hour or simply get the party started. A wedding day reveal also lets you take pictures at a location like the beach which might not be feasible after the wedding due to your schedule and ceremony or reception locations. Finally for most couples, having seen each other before the ceremony doesn’t make walking down the aisle any less breath taking, there’s nothing quite like walking down an aisle with a 100+ family and friends watching you as you’re about to take your vows! Of course every day is unique so if you’re unsure simply ask your wedding photographer if a wedding day reveal or fist look is something you should consider.

Be sure to check back for more pictures from Brooke & Joel’s Vineyard wedding… you won’t believe the weather!

Just a couple of our favorites from Stella’s 3mo photo session in the studio. What a beautiful little girl! The trick to catching great shots like these is timing. It’s best to pick a time of day when your baby is usually calm. For most little ones the morning is a great choice but for Stella it was the evening, we took these around 5 in the evening and she was the perfect subject!! =)

Just a few of our favorite pictures from a winter wedding in Plymouth Michigan that we shot with Terpstra Photo. It was absolutely FREEZING… maybe 15º but the windchill made it feel even colder! Of course the bride was up for anything and we managed to shoot quickly and capture some really fun photos before we had to RUN for the warmth of the limo! If you’re planning a winter

wedding one of the keys to getting great photos is to scout out locations ahead of time, have a plan for the pictures you want and bring a warm coat! We always recommend something oversized with a nylon or silk interior for the bride so it easily slips on and off over the wedding dress!

Driving to Snow Moon Ranch
This wedding at Snow Moon Ranch was one of my favorite destination weddings of the year! Andrew and Autumn were incredible to work with and up for anything inspite of the rain on their wedding day and Snow Moon Ranch just took my breath away… The ranch feels like it’s hidden away in the hills of Northern Michigan but is actually relatively easy to find. Once found though you travel up a winding road through the woods until you emerge high up in the hills with spectacular views in every direction. The Ranch grounds are beautifully maintained and the Barn is

picture perfect for everything from portraits to a ceremony to a cocktail hour! While the rustic barn and incredible views certainly wowed all of the wedding guests my favorite memory from the day has to be the groom and groomsmen trying to tie their bow ties… a suggestion for all you future grooms out there, do NOT wait till the day of your wedding to try and tie your first bow tie! It makes for funny pictures and a LATE groom! But alls well that ends well and this wedding day ended in spectacular fashion with a beautiful tented reception and pictures in the barn with the rain pouring down. What an unforgettable day, I certainly hope to return to Snow Moon Ranch again for more weddings! Congrats to Autumn & Andrew!

New Buffalo is one of my favorite locations for family pictures on the beach. Big beaches, low dunes, and lots of sweeping horizon lines make for a beautiful setting, of course it’s hard to go wrong when you’re working with a family as easy going as this!!
