Lake Michigan Destination Intimate Wedding // Steve + Jessica

Steve + Jessica celebrated their intimate wedding on the shore of Lake Michigan. There’s something special about an intimate wedding. You lose all the formalities and stress that can come with a big crowd and bridal party. The day goes a bit slower and you have time to visit with the handful of friends and family invited. There’s less pressure to be certain places at specific times. You get to breath a little bit more.

The sand served as the ceremony grounds and the lakeside cottage as the getting ready bridal suite. The “parking lot” became the reception spot with tables decorated with glass and candles. Jessica’s, “makeup artists” were her mother and sister. The officiant was Steve’s dad which made for an emotional and beautiful ceremony. Jessica and Steve ended the day with authentic tacos and fireside dances on the beach surrounded by their people. What could be better?

South Bend, Indiana Destination Wedding // Jeremy & Alyssa

I have so many favorites from this day it has taken forever just to narrow it down to these. Gosh, Alyssa and Jeremy I can't say enough good things about ya'll. I had a killer time hanging with you for your Lake Michigan engagement session. The talks were good and the weather was moody, which we were about. 

Fast forward a few months later to your wedding and goodness, what a celebration. Just from the start, you both got ready in awesome places surrounded by your closest friends and family to choosing a stellar venue like The Brick to say your vows and to celebrate forever together. (And throw down and some yummy pizza)

Everything throughout the day was just on point. From the details like a G-wagon getaway car, Jeremy's fresh Nikes and Alyssa's beautiful dress. To unforgettable joy and excitement on everyone's faces when the vows were said and these two sealed the deal.

Colorado Adventurous Mountain Couple Session // Georgia + Collin


Collin is going to learn how to fly fish and Georgia is a super talented photographer. We talked about our favorite Netflix shows and how scary it would be to get stuck in an avalanche. And even how easily offended everyone is nowawadays. 

We shared stories, jokes and business ideas. These are the kind of people that become friends, thanks to photography, the internet and maybe fate. 

Anyway, take a gander at a few of my favorites from the time we kicked it in the Colorado mountains.

Colorado Rocky Mountain National Park Engagement Session // Josh + Nicole

It's not everyday that you get the Rocky Mountain National Park to yourself. I mean, we had open roads, empty trails and the best views untainted by tourists (minus the one cyclist). 

Josh and Nicole are so cool and so sweet. They made me feel so welcomed in Colorado and took me to the BEST Vietnamese food ever. Seriously, if you're ever in Fort Collins, Colorado you have to go to Young's Cafe Vietnamese Cuisine.

These are the kind of people that make me feel so privileged to get to do this.
