One of my biggest joys as a wedding photographer is getting to continue photographing couples after their wedding day and as they grow in their marriage and start families! The fall is a special time of year for me in so many ways not only because it is my favorite season, but there are lots of colorful outdoor weddings, I'm meeting with newly engaged couples getting married the following year, and I also sometimes have the privilege of photographing my past clients again!! . . .Read more
Brooke + Ben's Monroe, MI wedding began our 2015 wedding season on a snow covered March afternoon while the warm sun streamed through the skinny tree branches. Brooke and Ben's love story began in high school and 7 years later the ones that got away, came back together more in love than ever as they were truely meant to be. 10 years to the day from Brooke and Ben's first date, this reunited couple stood up in front of their close family and friends and promised to be there for each other for the rest of their lives.
Brooke + Ben you both have beautiful hearts and your love (and silliness) for each other was reflected in all the details and moments throughout your wedding at the Redeemer Fellowship Church in Monroe, MI and at the reception at the Stone Creek Banquet Facility in Flat Rock, MI. I am honored to have been among your close family and friends on this very special day in your life and relationship.

Photos aside, how do you envision your wedding to be like?
"Since it is going to be towards the end of winter, we decided to embrace the cold weather and do a snow/forest theme. Lots of candles, spruce and pine cones with artificial snow. I imagine a very simple and sweet ceremony, and quirky but fun reception. We are a couple of goofs so don't expect anything super rigid and uptight."
