suyao and steven . engagement session . grand rapids


I don’t know if going to Grand Rapids when I live in Michigan can be considered a destination session :)  I booked Suyao and Steven’s wedding almost totally over email (we spoke for maybe three minutes on the phone) but I knew we would be the perfect fit.  I was totally right!  She asked if I’d shoot their session in GR and I was all for it, I’d lived here once when I was about seven years old and it was so fun to get to drive up and meet them and have them take me on a walk-a-bout to their favorite streets and places!  The wedding will be at the Meijer Gardens and that will be something special too!  I can’t wait, but in the meantime here are two amazing people in love, and I got to celebrate it!

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
