Kelli & Derek

“Take bread away from me, if you wish,

take air away, but

do not take from me your laughter.”  -Pablo Neruda

 

I am so excited to shoot with Kelli & Derek next month for their wedding!  I think one of the things I love most about my job is working with couples who can't help but laugh and smile when they're with each other.  My heart is so full.

I'm a Grand Rapids based photographer, still amazed that I get to do what I love on a daily basis. I feel so alive when I'm shooting—It's something that's just in me—and I have loved having the opportunity to share peoples' stories through photos. I have three beautiful children, Henry, Sally, and Frances, with my husband Patrick. We get to do life together, and when get some extra time, we all love to head down to Chicago and explore together. Our life is simple, but built around each other, hoping to show our kids that we can make a difference and impact lives by doing what we love.
