PRIMARILY, I AM Holland, Lansing,
& Grand Rapids MI WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

And what I really love ARE amazing

Outdoor Portraits

Bottom line, no distance is too far for your love story. I love traveling and hiking with my husband, and we have so many places left to explore. There are so many beautiful places to see and people to meet. I'm excited for the next wedding adventure!

And let's be real. You have a LOT of options in the world of  of who to choose as your Grand Rapids, MI wedding photographer. But if you want those gorgeous outdoor photographs you've always been dreaming of and a personal hype girl while creating it all - book me.

Personally, I am open to any and ALL venues with amazing outdoor locations for portraits.  Eloping and want to go hiking?! YES. I've got my boots ready and my backpack full of snacks.  Have a church ceremony and a reception venue inside, but amazing grounds by either of those places?  AMAZING.  Let's pop by a different location to get those amazing outdoor portraits for you. Having a intimate wedding on your land? SWEET. let's chat about where we can explore on your property.

Even if its 90 degrees outside I will make sure we have lots of water and can run inside a building to cool off for 5 minutes in the middle of photos.  I've been in a multi-layered wedding dress in July . . . So I understand the heat and how much that stinks to be constantly sweating. (both emotionally and physically!)

With over 50 weddings as a full-time wedding photographer, I have seen and experienced a lot. And I know that I can help you achieve exactly what you're looking for with your Kentucky wedding photography - and to help you have a heck of a lot of fun along the way.

As you cruise around my website, let me know if you have any questions about anything at all. I really am here to help.

Allie was absolutely amazing to work with! She would reach out in email to make sure we were on schedule. But most importantly we were blown away by our wedding video!!!  It was amazing and met all of my expectations!! Couldn’t recommend her enough!

That was the most amazing thing I have ever watched! You made Ahmed cry, it was so beautiful. Thank you so much for the time and effort you put into making this. It could have taken you a year to put together and it would have been well worth the wait, so I appreciate you getting it back to me so soon! I have no words, it was absolutely perfect.
