Megan and John dated in high school before going in different directions after graduation. They both traveled throughout the states and eventually came back to their home town of Dowagiac. On occasion it just takes time being apart to realize that you’d rather be together. I don’t know about you but by seeing the way they look at each other, I can definitely tell that they were meant to be. Congratulations Megan and John! I can’t wait to capture your big day!!!   […] Continue reading →

For those of you that didn’t know already, Brent and I are welcoming a precious baby boy into our family in March. We are extremely excited for our second child and hope Alaina loves becoming a big sister. I wanted to give a huge shoutout to my wonderful husband for capturing the majority of theses pictures! I’ve been looking at purchasing a dress for these pictures for quite some time, and Brent had to finally force me to spend the money. I had a specific look I was going for, […] Continue reading →

Ashley is my youngest sister and when she asked me to take some last minute Christmas card pictures for her and Barry, I of course said yes. We had to trudge through a bit of snow and the animals weren’t always the most cooperative, but I’d say that this session turned out great! We didn’t have actual mistletoe available, so we made due with a cedar tree branch. The funniest thing about the “mistletoe” pictures would probably be when Barry asked if he had to […] Continue reading →

These girls were truly a blast to photograph! Even with the amount of walking that took place, there wasn’t a tear shed.   The weather was perfect for the beginning of December. I mean come on, this is Michigan we are talking about here and it was in the 50’s!   If it wasn’t for her older sister, Rylee surely would have sat down in the mud and started to play. White pants + mud = lots of scrubbing before ever going into the washer if you want them to come clean […] Continue reading →

A few years back I had the pleasure of photographing Ethan, Emily’s older brother. This year she is a high school senior. Man does time fly by! This young lady is beautiful on the inside and out. She plans to continue her education in the dental field after graduating high school. I wish the best of luck to you Emily!!!   Due to weather we had to reschedule Emily’s senior photos a couple of times, but I’m glad we did. The day of her photo shoot was a bit chilly, but […] Continue reading →

Calvin and Faith’s day was filled with love, laughter, and lots of rain. Though their wedding may not have gone according to plan, it still resulted in in bringing these two adventurers together as husband and wife! I absolutely LOVE when a couple elects to do a first look. It allows for some private time between the bride and groom before the day starts to unfold. In this case we were able to beat some of the rain and get some lovely outdoor pictures!     Faith’s mom […] Continue reading →

I’ve know Katie for several years now, and I’d have to say she is one of the most genuine, caring, happy people I know. If it is even possible, when she met Pete she became even more so. These two are truly perfect for each other and I’m so happy that I had the chance to help document their wonderful day!   Thank you again Katie and Pete for asking me to be your videographer! It was an absolute blast!   Church: The Apostolic Lighthouse of Dowagiac Reception […] Continue reading →

When I get the pleasure of photographing high school seniors, it always seem as if I am allowed to spend time with the most beautiful people. I mean, come on!!! I definitely didn’t look like that when I was in school. Raegan, you were truly a pleasure to photograph! I had to ask Raegan several times if she modeled. She was a natural in front of the camera! Not only could this girl be a model, but she’s also a soccer athlete, a flute player, and a drum major.   […] Continue reading →

Mckena and JayDee’s wedding was absolutely gorgeous! From the oh so in love couple, the beautiful venue, the gorgeous day, to the every so small but well thought out details, the Schmucker’s day was just perfect. After bridal party and family shots they went straight into their first dance. Then the speeches… Which were a great combination of laugh filled sentiments and declarations of well wishes to the couple. Mckena and JayDee were so sweet to each other. No cake […] Continue reading →
