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?

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.
