Dylan came in for his 3mth pics what seems like just a couple weeks ago. Now almost 5mths old he was requiring holiday pictures and cards for his family and friends! Mister Serious had his thinking face on the entire time…I think he was taking notes for what/where to explore at his 6mth shoot!
Saturday I had the privilege again of photographing James & Chelsea! We did their first e-pics back in September in St. Joseph, but due to intense sun that morning they decided to head north to visit Cedar Springs. We started in the studio with some simple, more traditional poses, then we headed to Rockford to take advantage of an old barn on a friends property.
Ceremony took place at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary with the reception following at Bistro Bella Vita downtown Grand Rapids. All the planning could not have been for a more relaxed, romantic evening. Deep red roses, candle light and white lights for atmosphere.
Saturday’s wedding took place at Mayfair Christian Reformed Church in Grand Rapids with the reception at English Hills Terrace in Comstock Park.
The weather could not have been more perfect for November, a duplicate of Friday. Pictures started at the church with a brief stop at Aquinas College. Their celebration was in full swing once the newlyweds arrived at English Hills with over 250 guests awaiting their arrival!
A year ago I had the opportunity of photographing Sara’s extended family…and let me tell you, that was the largest family I have shot at one time. The “kids” that day were her mother’s siblings. It was wonderful being able to catch-up with everyone to hear about all the changes that can happen in just one year.
George and Jeralyn were married on Friday afternoon at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church downtown Grand Rapids. Absolutely breathtaking. Jers was up for anything and with the incredible November weather we took full advantage of being outdoors. Reception was at the Radisson Hotel immediately following the ceremony. It was great listening to old college friends catch up while celebrating George and Jeralyn’s new life. Simply “PERF!”

A little description on the picture above. Jeralyn’s parents and grandparents were both married at St. Mary’s. The one required shot of the day was taken at the only location in the church that has not changed in 150 years. The same location and pose to add to their family history.
Something I learned Friday… Did you know you can FAKE a CAKE?
REQUIREMENTS: Seeking someone that is fun, personable, outgoing, patient, great with children, time-oriented, professional, dependable, an eye for detail, and can handle a camera.
TIME: To say this would be part-time or on-call would be best, being that I can not guarantee a full schedule. The calendar for 2008 continues to grow.
I look forward to hearing your story and see examples of your work (flickr.com or equal if you do not have a digital portfolio or website).

Chris and Sara were married at Vergennes United Methodist in Lowell. Simple and beautiful. Reception followed at Townsend Park at the enclosed pavilion. Such a cozy atmosphere. Light from the fireplace, candle light, and white lights…very romantic. Thank you for making me a part of your day.
