Brittney & Jonathan's St Pat's Park Engagement Session

St. Patrick's County Park has always been a great place to photograph couples. This is where we decide to take Brittney & Jonathan, as well as their kids, for an engagement session / mini family session. A lot of clients I have always say they're not good in front of the camera but that's because they don't realize once they stop paying attention to me and start paying attention to each other instead, that's when the best photos happen. And these two did an outstanding job being in front of the lens. Cannot wait to photograph your October wedding. :D 

Cheers,
Wes

 

Malinda & Chick's Engagement Session - St Joseph Michigan - Tiscornia Park

Malinda & Chick were a lot of fun to photograph. These two are so in love and it's amazing. I got the chance to walk around downtown Saint Joseph Michigan as well as on the beaches of Tiscornia Park. It was a wonderful day, beautiful weather with a focus on two adorable people that very much enjoy each other's company. I am so thankful I got to be apart of this. Cannot wait to photograph their wedding day in May 2018.

And YES... Once we were finished with the session, we decided to jump into Lake Michigan for a quick dip! Lol. I mean, we HAD to, right. ;)

Sarah & Cody Preston - Van Buren Youth Camp Wedding

A few years ago I got to photograph Katie & Ian's wedding where I was able to meet Katie's cousin, Sarah. She was a blast at the wedding and a handful of years later when she decided to get married she told me they didn't even bother looking because she knew I was the one they wanted to photograph it... Yes, I almost teared up when they said that, lol.

Being able to stay with a family as they all grow and allowing me to capture their precious moments is an amazing feeling and I greatly appreciate them all, not only as clients but as friends. As well as being very kind hearted and warm they're also just all some pretty amazing people.

Sarah & Cody's wedding took place at the Van Buren Youth Camp in Van Buren MI. Most of their family and friend attended this camp throughout the years and this was also where Cody first met Sarah, while working in the kitchen. Many great memories were had at this youth camp and it was just perfect for them to have their wedding celebration there as well.

Brooke & Bryan - Booneyville Mill Park - Pre Wedding Session

Having the chance to capture a few loving moments for Brooke & Bryan meant a lot to me because these two were just SO adorable.

We met at the Booneyville Mill Park in Bristol Indiana. At the start of the engagement session, it began to lightly sprinkle down a bit of a rain. Luckily we had the mill to walk under and take a few photos. 

After a few minutes of photos under the cover of the mill, the skies began to clear. With this Brooke & Bryan were able to bust out their picnic basket for a quick snack, some smooches, and smiles.

Check out the photos for the story of their fun picnic.

Justine & Cody - Saint Joseph Michigan - Engagement Session

St Joseph Michigan is such a beautiful space for engagement photos! The sun didn't decide to poke out for the evening but no matter, adventure time.

Had such a great time hanging out with Justine & Cody. We just walked around the area and went on a hike around St Joe for the evening and it was quite nice to just chat and hang out for a few hours. 

I cannot thank Justine & Cody enough for hanging out with me for the day and entrusting me with their wedding. It truly means a lot to me.

This is part 1 of their engagement session.

Megan and Race’s Enchanted Greenhouse Wedding

Congratulations, Megan and Race!

On February 18th, 2017, beauty Megan and her beast, Race, tied the knot at the gorgeous Potawatomi Greenhouse and Conservatory in South Bend, Indiana. Complete with tropical plants, waterfall and quaint garden, the warmth and inviting nature of this idyllic location was perfect for their truly enchanted wedding ceremony.

Starting off the day at Kalon Hair Lab getting her hair styled by Kimmie as well as her beautiful makeup from Makeup by Keria. Megan was rockin’ her new-blue-do and a pair of bright yellow converse shoes, Megan looked awe-some as she walked down an adorable Beauty and the Beast themed aisle runner in her stunning strapless corset style A-line wedding dress by Bonnie Bridal. Totally loving the mix of heavy bead detailing, tulle and lace!

Equally as dapper was her beast-to-be, decked out in a Heather Grey three piece suit, navy blue vest and tie, courtesy of Louie’s Tux Shop, plus a pair of stylish brown dress shoes. Megan also made sure her ladies were comfortable in theme-complementing red converses and beautiful navy blue dresses.

Megan and Race exchanged their vows with a lush green backdrop and plenty of natural light pouring through the conservatory greenhouse, certainly making for one heck of a fairy-tale wedding! Once the I Dos were sealed, the celebration continued on at the Hedwig Memorial Center, where Beauty and the Beast’s enchanted rose in a glass dome centerpiece display awaited the newlywed couple.

Known for its Polish food, the center catered a delicious Polish style family served reception dinner. Sweet-toothed wedding guests also delighted in vanilla cupcakes with the choice of either blueberry or strawberry filling as well as peanut butter jelly filled cupcakes and cheesecake bites… while the newlyweds enjoyed a vanilla cake to themselves. Yum!

Perhaps the most “mystical” detail of the night, however, came in the form of a dancing T-Rex dinosaur? Hah, loving it!

Wishing the newlyweds much love and happiness!


#BrideTip: Remember the day is about you and your husband, not everyone else!
