Sometimes, waking up at 4:00am is SO WORTH IT. Jasmine and Will are pretty people in a pretty place and are in all the pretty pictures.

3 Questions for Finding the Right Wedding Photographer

What to ask a wedding photographer before hiring them.

Adrienne and Matt Anniversary iPhoneography

A while ago, I posted on facebook that I needed to experiment more and challenge myself to think differently about my craft. I proposed something a little wacky- an entire session done with my iPhone as the camera. No special add on lenses... no "cheating..." just working with the tools in front of me while trying to make something new. Adrienne of Adrienne Dennis Photography and Salt + Light Collective volunteered right away to model. I'm so glad she did. We are totally kindred spirits and (surprise!) it was approaching her 10 year anniversary with Matt. Perfect timing for a couple's session in the winter woods.

I love what we made. I love that it was a scrappy set up. I love that we took a risk.

Lane and Tiffany / Kalamazoo Engagement Photographer

I met Tiffany and Lane at One Well Brewing in Kalamazoo (Go. Don't ask, just Go.) and I wasn't even finished with my beer before my suspicions of their awesomeness was confirmed. They bonded over geocacheing- aka: super cool kind of treasure hunting outdoors. My kind of people. Adventurers.

Their wedding next year is going to be at a gorgeous herb garden, and I know that it's going to be the perfect balance of unique and laid back... uncontrived, just like them.
