It was a rare but beautiful sunny day in Grand Rapids on Saturday and Christy and Aaron were so excited to begin their married lives together.  They were such a fun couple in every way…  The kind of couple us photographers love to shoot because they are just so full of love and joy and never stop smiling or laughing.  Here are a few quick highlights…





The Fluorescent lights were doing this weird and yet very cool thing with the white balance on “Auto” setting… this was taken on a completely white table top surface in flat even lighting.  Pretty sweet.



This was drawn on the white board in the room where Aaron got dressed. : )



Had to throw in this fun candid of Aaron.


Amidst the sub 20 degree weather, Christy and Aaron braved the cold for a few portraits.


I love these next two shots!



Tickling always gets some great moments…






A private moment just after they were married.


Love this toast shot.



And a ring shot to close this post.


Thanks Christy and Aaron for choosing me to capture your incredible day together!
