I met Kyle Logan and his wife Tawny only several weeks ago, but they are already two of my favorite people. Kyle is the worship pastor at a church down the road from where I live, and will blow you away with his musical abilities. He has been working on a new music project and it will be available to enjoy soon…so be sure to keep your ears open.
So one of my best friends in the whole world just got engaged. And I got to take her engagement photos. I could not be more happy. Carrie Ratcliff, (soon to be Carrie Burch) is my midwest friend who I met at college in Southern California. We did life together for so long, it is so hard for me to have her half way across the country. But she is rockin it over there, and Kevin is so great….I know both of them are gonna have an amazing life in Grand Rapids. I love these two so much.
Lauren and John are amazing. Lauren created the whole look of the wedding herself, her vintage style is so rad. The uniqueness of this wedding was my favorite part. They had a pie making contest, and instead of having the girls throw flowers and the boys carry the rings, they handed out candy as they walked down the isle. And the field we found down the street from the chapel was too good to be true. Great people. Great wedding.
These two have the best story. They have been dating since highschool and still have the spark. I have found that the toasts at a wedding are really telling to who the couple really are and who they have impacted. Let’s just say the toasts at this wedding made me tear up. It is clear that they are good at loving each other, and good at loving others. And that is an incredible combination.

When Lauren contacted me, she already knew exactly where she wanted her engagement shoot. This beautiful open space in the Northern California rolling hills couldn’t have been a more perfect location. Lauren often hikes here, so she knows the area like the back of her hand and I had a great time roaming these hills to get these shots.
