Dan and Kelsey should be two recognizable faces to you (remember their engagement shoot during one of the hotter days of last summer?) Despite the cold snowy weather on their wedding day, the group stayed warm with their fur wraps (the ladies) and good ol’ intestinal fortitude (the dudes). Before I get going, I’d like to thank my second shooter Thomas Wrench for assisting me on this day.

This wedding took place around downtown Kalamazoo. Lets start the day off at the Radisson where the ladies got ready:

Loft 310 is where the wedding party sides got ready. Again, we’ll stick with the ladies before checking in with the dudes.


We made a switch and the women joined me in the same space for some portraits of their own.

” First-look” and some moments together.

Trolley time! On our way to the ceremony site.

Kelsey saw her father for the first time this day beneath the chandelier in the front entrance to the church. After that, Kelsey and Dan spent about a minute outside with me.

Final moments prior to the ceremony.

And so it began…

More ceremony shots showcasing the beautiful interior of the church.

First moments as married followed by a sparkler exit.


Inside The Gatsby (within Loft 310) for appetizers. Speeches were to follow.

The formal dances commence!


Time to dance!

I never know where to insert these ring shots. I’ll put them here this time.


Thanks for viewing, everyone!


Thanks, Jillian. I appreciate the depth of your perception into my wedding approach. I had a lot of fun with you sister and Devin on their engagement. I’m looking forward to sharing those images soon and to meeting you on their wedding day.

Thanks again for commenting.

Fantastic photos! Kelsey looked gorgeous, and I loved the way you compiled these images on this page. Sort of a collage of moments together on the screen. And I just really like your style – the shots seem to be taken from some very different angles than a more traditional photographer would take and you are catching great expressions. Those photos taken without posing are always so much fun to look at later on, to remember the emotions on that day. I cant wait to see how my sister’s wedding pictures turn out. (My sister is Elizabeth Spontelli). Looking forward to meeting you soon!
