more Adrienne and Kyle

I'm having a very hard time editing this shoot. I suppose that's a good thing!

Downtown Grand Rapids offers so many sweet locations to shoot in.

wedding shoot

I don't often have the opportunity to shoot weddings, so I really enjoy photographing the ones I can.

This is Adrienne and Kyle...a super cool couple.

They were up for anything...and I had a blast with them.

I'll post more photos from this wedding later. Their entire day was spontaneous and beautiful.

a little less suck

I don't know Zack or his work as a photographer...but he gets the whole video...funny and insightful.

I go through periods like this too...I'm in one right now!

Highland Group's Jen Crowley

On Friday I photographed my friend Jen Crowley of Highland Group, an advertising agency in Grand Rapids with a client list that most agencies would die for; but the firm remains low-key, nimble and relaxed. They recently purchased and renovated a great building in the historic neighborhood of Cherry Hill.
These two photos came later in the session. I often have a portrait subject chat with someone off camera and grab some simple candid shots. These moments are sometimes the most relaxed and interesting of the shoot.

Rock and Roll - Cleveland

I had a whirlwind trip to Columbus and Cleveland this past weekend. I was shooting for another new web magazine that is coming out soon for Issue Media Group. I'm quite proud to be the Director of Photography for their publications and am able to work with a ton of talented photographers in each of our publications.

I'd never been to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland...these are the cars used on U2's Zoo TV tour.
