Rockhill Studio // Grand Rapids Engagement Photographer, Jimmy + Haz

I cannot say how much I love when client families turn into wonderful relationships.  I've been able to work with member's of Jimmy's family now for a number of weddings and sessions and his family are some of the best people I know.  So when these two got engaged and contacted me about photographing their wedding, I was SO SO SO happy!  That, and the fact...

I love engagement sessions.  I love getting to know my couples before the wedding day, and these sessions are so much more relaxed than a wedding day typically is.  This means we really get to shoot without the pressure of keeping within a timeline, we can just kick back, relax, and adventure around, capturing my couples being...well, a couple!  And I simply ADORED Samantha and...

Sometimes during an engagement session, you have a couple who are just perfect together.  I mean, JUST PERFECT.  That was the case with Casey and Del.  These two know the hardships of a long-distance relationship, with much over their time spent with a literal ocean between them, so the time they do spend together is extra special...and I could see that in every aspect of their engagement session.  

We had an amazing time wandering around Marquette, Michigan for their session!  So many laughs, lots of cuddles, and the most perfect Northern Michigan summer evening.  I was super excited to share some from this session, but waited till the couple "officially" became engaged...about a month or two after their photo shoot.  So, instead of posting a ton on our facebook page, I'll just make a blog post about it, yay!

Rockhill Studio // Traverse City Wedding Photographer Magazine Feature

Earlier this year while we were getting prepared to photograph Christy and Mike's wedding day, I got a call from the editor of the MiBrew magazine, a publication put on by the Michigan Brewers Guild.  The editor said they were doing a feature on the bride (Christy) and was wondering if I'd be up for using one of my images from the wedding day as their magazine cover.  

ABSOLUTELY!

This couple is very enthusiastic about craft beer, and it was fitting that on the wedding day, we went to a local brewery for a quick drink, getting some pictures with the couple and their wedding party.  It made the perfect backdrop for shooting the cover of the magazine!  I was thrilled for this amazing couple and the opportunity to have their big day featured in such an amazing way!! 

Much thanks to MiBrew magazine and this couple for the incredible opportunity!!

Rockhill Studio // Ryan + Nicole, Marquette, MI Engagement

I first met Ryan and Nicole in Green Bay, Wisconsin.  It was the evening before we were scheduled to shoot a wedding and we had met up with that bride and groom at the hotel with their wedding party, family, and friends for a few drinks.  We were chatting about how excited we were for the next day's wedding and just general conversation and Ryan (who at the time was only dating Nicole) mentioned to us about how he was planning on proposing to Nicole in...

Rockhill Studio // Emma + Matt, Michigan to Minnesota Destination Wedding

The best thing in the world is when clients turn friends.  I've had the immense pleasure of photographing the Lemanski family numerous times starting in the fall of 2015 when I photographed Matt's sister and her fiancé for their engagement session.  Soon after that session, Emma and Matt got engaged and I was beyond thrilled to also book them for their wedding in Minnesota for...

Kory and Chelsea...I cannot say enough amazing things about this couple!  I remember chatting with them about their wedding day during the engagement session (which you can view HERE if you wish!) and I remember thinking about how excited I was with all they described and had planned.  As the big day drew closer and we finalized the wedding day photography details, my excitement grew and grew and this spectacular wedding did not disappoint!  This wedding on this hot summer day was...

Eric and Erica's wedding day was a fairytale.  From before the wedding all the way thru the reception, everything was magical.  Erica's family has a beautiful cottage on Twin Lakes in Newberry, Michigan and we even shot their amazing engagement session here and on their property just down the road back in the fall of 2015.  It's Erica's "happy place" and everything that day was perfect.
