This past year has been my favorite so far in my photography career. I photographed more weddings than I have any year prior, and felt more freedom to create with purpose and passion than I have before. 2017's weddings brought me all over the Mitten: Ann Arbor, Holland, Grand Haven, Detroit, Dearborn, Mackinac Island (definitely a favorite), and of course all around my home base of my favorite city, Grand Rapids.

Thanks to all the wonderful couples who let me experience and document their love stories, and thanks to all the delightful creative people I had the opportunity to collaborate with this year. You've believed in me, challenged me, and inspired me, and I'm so very grateful.

Enjoy this selection from some of my favorite weddings of the year!
