Stephanie & Leif Wedding {Lawton, MI}

When a couple like Stephanie and Leif come along, the photography is a lot less work. Not only are these two outwardly attractive, but after you spend some time with them, it’s obvious that beauty is also a reflection of their character and values. With these ingredients, it becomes easy to document sincere interactions between the couple and their family and friends.

Let’s get it started with Stephanie and her bridesmaids at Steph’s mom’s house. On the way to venue, the ladies stopped at The Briar Patch nursery for some portraits. The ceremony and reception were both held at Vineyard 354 Family Farm.

John & Kara: Married
John and Kara got married in Grand Rapids almost two weeks ago. I had a hilarious time with their wedding party mainly because of their wedding-reception transportation and the fact the Grand Rapids Art Prize was in it's opening weekend.

Sarah & Dan: Awesome AND Married!
Two weeks ago Sarah and Dan had an outdoor wedding at the Kalamazoo Nature Center. It was a gamble and it turned out to be pretty chilly for the ceremony. At least the rain held off until after the receiving line finished! We scrambled around amid sprinkles and got a few group shots before heading over to the reception (In a BARN!). The food was awesome and the venue was amazing. I'm really pleased with how the dancing shots turned out. But don't let me tell you what to think! Check out these highlight and leave me some comments at the end. If you want to follow my future work, you can subscribe to my RSS feed. Oh yeah, and if you want to ...
