Alex & Joey: The Pidge Inn Wedding Video | Muskegon, Michigan

Wedding Videography

Alex and Joey were originally supposed to get married in May of this year, but, because we were in the thick of Covid, they had to reschedule their wedding to this fall.

Wedding Photography, Wedding Videography

Amanda & Jasper got married in the sweetest, intimate Northern Michigan wedding with their closest friends and family members. Going into their wedding weekend, the forecast pretty much showed a 100% chance of rain all day, and it definitely looked like Michigan was going to actually follow through this time. Jasper and Mandy were such […]

Wedding Videography

Brooke and Austin got married in late August at a gorgeous Knight’s Castle summer wedding at Castle Farms in Charlevoix. We had a few little sprinkles throughout the day (it really looked like their ceremony would be a rainy one – the skies cleared up though right before Brooke walked down the aisle. Perfect timing!).

Mackenzie and Grant got married in August in the most gorgeous Michigan summer backyard wedding. Their entire day was a complete 180 from what they had originally planned, but through all the craziness and re-planning, these two took everything in stride and their day was absolutely breathtaking!

Emily & Collin: A Summer Backyard Wedding | Middlebury, IN

Wedding Photography, Wedding Videography

Emily and Collin were married on the first weekend of August in a gorgeous summer backyard wedding, and I’m still a little teary-eyed over how gorgeous and emotional their wedding day was. I don’t think anything about their wedding day was what they had originally imagined. They were originally supposed to get married here in […]

Isabelle & Nicholas: A Northern Michigan Elopement | Frankfort, Michigan

Isabelle & Nick got married in the most gorgeous, intimate Northern Michigan elopement on Lake Michigan. The entire week leading up to their elopement day showed storms on the forecast.

Chelsea & Kevin got married at St. Kenneth’s Church this month! These two are seriously the sweetest couple you’ll ever meet and they’ve been so amazing during everything that’s been going on in this crazy 2020. When all of the shutdowns started to happen, we had a video call about possible back up plans. They […]

Katie & John: Sleeping Bear Dunes Engagement Session | Peterson Beach

I got to kick off my 4th of July weekend with Katie & John’s gorgeous Peterson Beach Sleeping Bear Dunes engagement session and gosh was it beautiful.
