David and Tayler

David and Tayler had a beautiful, Spring wedding in downtown Geneva, a couple of weeks back. Weather looked iffy leading up to their big day, but they ended up with an incredible March afternoon! David and Tayler got ready at the historic Herrington Inn, and had the sweetest first look. David couldn’t keep his eyes off of his stunning bride, and we loved the way his entire face lit up when he saw her walking toward him

We had so much fun doing portraits along the beautiful Fox River, and their bridal party was so fun to be around!

Their ceremony at Riverside Receptions was beautiful and heartfelt, and the florals by Kio Kreations that were along the aisle and draped the Chuppah, were stunning! We love that they had a friend act as their officiant, and the music they chose was spot-on!

Their reception was filled with laughter, great food, dancing and incredible music; provided by the lovely and talented Rachel of Toast & Jam!

David and Tayler, we are so glad you asked us to be a part of your beautiful day. It was truly an honor.

Genevieve and Grace

There’s nothing quite as meaningful as being able to capture important milestones in peoples lives. We were happy to be there at Colleen and Ryan’s wedding and then again to capture some maternity photos and finally to celebrate the arrival of their sweet girls Genevieve and Grace.

Kara and Brian

Dogs, beer, and Pictionary. Kara and Brian’s wedding was one of the most fun days I’ve been a part of! Brian owns Sister Lakes Brewing so my day started with the guys drinking craft beer and then I met up with the girls who, instead of getting their hair and makeup done, were having a dance party in robes. We did a first look at Kalamazoo College where we did a ton of photos with their dog (who made it into the reception night as a cardboard cutout). After portraits we went to the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts to get ready for their ceremony but by “get ready” I really mean a quick game of Pictionary. Their art gallery ceremony was concluded with a unity beer that was infused with basil grown in their back yard. The beer at the reception was flowing by none other than Sister Lakes and Kara and Brian’s intro and first dance was done as the Blue’s Brothers. I don’t know how they fit so much awesome into their day but I’m happy they chose me to capture it all!
