Marta + Christine / Camp Blodgett Wedding Photographer

Camp Blodgett Michigan LGBTQ wedding photographer

Featured on Offbeat Bride: here

“Marta and Christine celebrated their wedding with an intimate gathering of friends and family at Camp Blodgett on Lake Michigan. The day was characterized by opposites coming together: boho meets Ikea, with fun color details and a simple, modern look. Planners fox + fern events incorporated their personalities with the comfy blankets on the beach and the wildflower arch against the lake. Wildflowers with splashes of gold throughout brought it all together for complete feeling of relaxation and romance.

Marta specifically requested something “science-y," so they added some glass beakers among the bud vases on guest tables. Christine wanted to make sure to carry through the geometric details with guest favors, so they incorporated himmili airplant holders into the centerpiece design for their friends and family to take home at the end of the evening.

The ceremony revolved around Dr. Seuss’s “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” and was written by Marta and Christine. Instead of a first dance, they led their their guests in a sing-along. Christine began the first verse of “You and I” by Ingrid Michaelson and when Marta began the second verse, the room exploded. By the end of the song, everyone was singing, stomping, and clapping. After dinner, there was a trivia game about the couple, and treats from Love’s Ice Cream.”

Lindsey + Logan / Two EE's Winery Wedding

Lindsey + Logan / Two EE's Winery Wedding

Lindsey has been one of my muses since the very beginning. We did a super cool Bonnie and Clyde themed editorial with her partner in cinematic craft. We sent a couple hours in my old wood paneled attic exploring strangely lit natural portraits. My heart about BURST when she asked me to be her wedding photographer.

Liv + Brian / Miami Wedding

Liv + Brian / Miami Wedding

When Liv and Brian reached out to have me be their wedding photographer, I about died. Partially, because MIAMI but mostly because they are artists. Everything was stunning and they inspired me to be creative. For their ceremony and reception, they fused a rustic style with a tropical setting at Miami Central Park. The day was full of real emotion and I found myself singing songs along side them during their ceremony.

Jaime + Nate / Sundance Studios Benton Harbor Wedding

Ever since it opened, I've wanted to photograph a wedding at Sundance Studios. When Jaime told me that she and Nate were getting married there, I about lost my mind. It is incredibly fun to take pictures there, and Jaime and Nate were down for any of my weird ideas. We never had to leave the venue, and it made the day feel "easy."
