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...

Rockhill Studio // Upper Peninsula Spring Wedding, Eric and Erica

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.

Rockhill Studio // Haley + Sam, Marquette Engagement Photographer

Haley and Sam are two amazing people that together make such a beautiful couple.  Haley was one of my first 2017 weddings to book, so we've been looking forward to this engagement session for a few months now.  When she mentioned doing the session at Presque Isle in Marquette, Michigan, I knew this would be an amazing session.  I mean, Presque Isle is one of my FAVORITES to shoot at (I've blogged several sessions from there, you can totally see why!) and always love the chance to shoot there whenever possible.  But also, I knew this session would be wonderful from corresponding with Haley these...

Rockhill Studio // Emma + Matt, Northern Michigan Winter Engagement

I first got in touch with Emma and Matt thru Matt's sister and her fiancé (you can see their amazing engagement session HERE) when they were looking for a photographer once they became engaged.  I was SO excited that Emma and Matt wanted their engagement session done in the Upper Peninsula AND in the winter.  I seriously love everything about the spring/summer/fall, but there's something about a winter engagement session, and in Michigan no less, that's perfect in every way.  I love that it's such a contrast from their Minnesota wedding later this...

Rockhill Studio // Danielle + Cole, Manistique Michigan Engagement Photographer

Right now it's the month of April.  While the rest of the country is warm, and spring is blooming, we have school cancellations in some of the districts around us because of the snow.  Seriously.  So, on that snowy, cold note, I'm blogging Danielle and Cole's engagement session from February.  It was a cold and snowy day then, too!  Barely above freezing, and a fresh snow fall from the night before (with some still snow/blowing snow) it was a winter wonderland and made for an amazing backdrop.

Rockhill Studio // Eric + Erica, A Newberry Michigan Fall Engagement

Continuing my blogging of past sessions from this summer and fall, I'm so excited to be sharing some favorites from Eric and Erica's beautiful engagement!  This couple is having their wedding in my hometown, and wanted the session on some of Erica's family property.  It was perfection...the day, the couple, the locations.  I just loved every second of these two and while I didn't include any below, there was SO many fun and goofy moments that I cannot wait to continue with their spring wedding in a few months!

Rockhill Studio // Upper Michigan Wedding Photographer

New Years Day is a great day to start out a new year with celebration.  And a perfect day to say "I Do."  The full blog post is coming on this one (soon!) but for now, enjoy a few of the images from a gorgeous holiday wedding <3

We started out at the ceremony location, St. Gregory's in Newberry, Michigan, a gorgeous place to be in the Upper Peninsula in the middle of winter!

This next image I love because it was literally ONE minute after that kiss at the alter (above).  So perfectly happy!!

The next two images are super special because A) this is on my family property and B) the bride had a pinterest page with images just like this...the tall trees...and I was so thrilled to let her know I had *just* the spot.   Oh, and C) this road is not plowed during the winter but it has been so mild out the snow wasn't super deep yet and thanks to one of the groom's relatives with a large truck, we made it!

The Knot.com Feature!

I love all the weddings we do...from the big to the small, the elaborate to simple.  I think my brides all do an amazing job at making their weddings just the way they want and I love capturing it all.  So when I get to tell my bride that their amazing wedding is being featured at theknot.com, that is even more amazing for the both of us!  

Check out or recent wedding we did in Marquette, Michigan along Lake Superior.  It was so special and wonderful.  Full blog post is a few posts down on our page, but you can catch the "full" story from the bride and groom HERE on theknot.com
