Rockhill Studio // Grand Haven Wedding, Rachel and Jake

I have to preface this by saying THIS IS JUST A SNEAK PEEK! I had so many photos from the sneak peeks I wanted to share, I figured it would look much better as a blog post, so…here it is!

Rachel and Jake are a special couple. You just know it when you talk with them and see how they are together. That true, real love they show for each other and their families is just wonderful and it made their day above and beyond exceptional. They chose …

Rockhill Studio // Detroit Area Wedding Photographer, H+J

To say this wedding day was an absolute dream is an understatement. I'll never forget our engagement session we had with these two, wandering around Grand Rapids capturing some amazing images and I had truly been counting down the days till their wedding day. Of course, the forecast ALL week long leading up to the wedding was a 90% chance of rain and

Rockhill Studio // Rock Island Illinois Wedding, Andria + Jim

Andria and Jim are quite possibly the most perfect couple you'd want to meet.  They are the kind of couple you want to just hang out with and have fun.  So sweet and kind and just amazing humans.  After getting to know them better for our engagement session, my excitement for their wedding was easily doubled!  I knew it was going to be a fun one...we were able to travel down to the Illinois/Iowa boarder for...

Rockhill Studio // Marquette Wedding Photographer, Jocelyn + Tanner

Jocelyn and Tanner.  One of the most perfect couples ever. I first met this couple when I photographed her twin sister's wedding (which was SO perfect and amazing in itself!)  I love Jocelyn's family so I absolutely jumped for joy that I would be working with them again!  We had chatted about doing this couple's engagement session on Mackinac Island and...

Rockhill Studio // Grand Rapids Wedding Photographer, Gina + Jake

If I asked you to close your eyes and picture a gorgeous bride, beaming with happiness, on a beautiful summer day, I'm pretty sure you would be picturing Gina.  She was the picture perfect bride, and along with her now husband, made for an incredible wedding day!  Their wedding, held on a windy and warm summer day in beautiful Grand Rapids, Michigan, was...

Rockhill Studio // Marquette Wedding Photographer, Autumn + Jeff

Autumn and Jeff.  I adore this couple!  They are both archeologists (I mean, how amazing is that?!) and I love the details from that they incorporated into their wedding.  It was a rainy, early summer day in the Upper Peninsula.  But that didn't matter...we were loaded up with our umbrellas and this couple was so in love, I don't think they even noticed the rain!  After the bride finished getting ready...

Rockhill Studio // Let's Bee Together Engagement Feature

I'm so happy for this couple...TODAY is their wedding day, and perfect timing for their snowy engagement session to be featured on Let's Bee Together!!  We had an amazing time wandering around the snowiest spots in Marquette, MI.  Northern Michigan is always cold and snowy in February, but we had such an amazing day for our session with the lake effect snow bands coming in and out.  Click HERE to view more of this feature!!

Rockhill Studio // Casey + Del, Marquette Engagement Photographer

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 // 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 // Why Choose a Wedding Album?

You said "I do", tied the knot, had an incredible wedding day.  The images we captured are beautiful and look amazing in your online gallery.  Now what?  Choosing an album with a wedding package, or adding one on, is something I'm always pleased with when a couple books a package.  Why?  Because it's one thing to display your images online to oooh and aaaah over, but holding them in your hand, printed in a fine art album, is a whole other experience.  It's not just a book.  It's a showstopper.  A family heirloom that your kids and their kids will look over and dream about their own wedding someday.  A reflection of the best day of...

Rockhill Studio // Teja + Joe, Marquette Michigan Engagement Photographer

Teja contacted me mid-February inquiring about an engagement session with her and her fiance, Joe, and I loved the though of doing their winter engagement session at the Presque Isle in Marquette, one of the places they brought up as a location.  Always a favorite of mine, for sure!  Teja was visiting Joe from Minnesota, and like most sessions where they had a small window for the session so fingers were crossed the weather would cooperate for us.  The morning of the session it was gorgeous.  Sunny, and not a cloud in the sky!  But it was COLD!  On the way to the session my car registered below zero, but thankfully but the start of the session it had warmed up into the 20's.  Still cold, but that sun did feel amazing!!

Rockhill Studio // Tania + Mike, Mackinac Island Engagement Photographer

Tania and Mike's engagement session was in one of my favorite places in Michigan: Mackinac Island.  There's so many amazing spots on the island, so when Tania contacted me inquiring about an engagement session there, I was thrilled!  Since they are not from the area and just taking a weekend for visiting, fingers were crossed for great weather...and it was.  REALLY crazy windy, but overall not bad.  However, Tania was under the weather with a really awful cold (which was diagnosed as pneumonia the next day!) but even with being so sick, she just ROCKED thru it!  I mean, look how amazing she looks in these images?!  I'm just so happy for these two and am so excited for their wedding day this coming September.

Rockhill Studio // Joe + Krista, Northern Michigan Wedding Photography

Joe and Krista's wedding day this past summer was as perfect as you can plan for.  Their wedding (held on the shores of Lake Superior in Grand Marais, MI) was sunny and warm, and perfect for all their guests who came in to town to celebrate.  The two themselves do not live in the Upper Peninsula, but wanted to have their wedding in Grand Marais, and I was so overjoyed the day started so perfect for them!  But this story does have a few curve balls thrown in...continue reading quite the wedding day story!
