Carolyn + Jake | Michigan Engagement Photographer


My heart has been singing for Carolyn + Jake since we started chatting about their wedding. These two are total treasures. Their love for each other radiates, and you can clearly see how much they adore being together. These two met during their undergrad at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI. Carolyn is a talented lacrosse player, and Jake a star athlete on the hockey rink. They met through mutual sports friends, and despite the pressures of all-nighters and final exams, these two stayed hand in hand.

To celebrate their upcoming wedding we opted to have an engagement session on a beautiful spring day, frolicking around the gardens of Aquinas in Grand Rapids, MI. Their smiling faces, and cuddly laughs filled my photo heart. The trees were perfectly in bloom, the evening sun was soft behind the spring clouds, and LOVE WAS IN THE AIR PEOPLE! 

Carolyn + Jake... I cannot thank you both enough to inviting me to be part of this journey. I am honored to photograph such a special love and I hope our photo friendship continues for many years to come! I am BEYOND excited for your upcoming wedding and all the lovely feels it will bring you. Cheers to being in love, deep red wildflowers, and photo fun!
