Ben and Ashley got married earlier this summer in Grand Rapids. We have known Ashley and her family for several years (they were guests at our wedding) and it has been a blast watching Ashley go through the planning process herself. She is one of the sweetest people we have ever met and her love for Ben and her family is so evident. This was such a beautiful day and we wish this couple nothing but the happiest of marriages together!
Rhi of Hey Gorgeous Events dreamt up this incredible inspiration shoot and we had the honor of photographing it! When Hidden Vineyard reached out to her to help market their space with a styled shoot, we were elated to be a part of it. Not only is this venue aboslutely gorgeous, but the owners are some of the kindest, most hospitable people ever! What we love most about this shoot is that it takes the already-done rustic look up a notch. We can't wait to return to this lovely venue next year for a wedding that's sure to be down-right stunning!
This shoot was featured on Style Me Pretty yesterday... take a look. Also, be sure to take a look at Rhi's brand new site that she launched yesterday. It's been a blast to watch her go through the rebrand process with HGE and the results are nothing short of amazing!

A few weeks ago, we took a trip to Chicago and were able to meet up with one of our wedding couples for their engagement session. It was such an incredible time for us to get to know Brandon and Betsey while we were photographing them. They showed us around some absolutely beautiful neighborhoods in the north part of the city then after their session was finished, we all went out together for pizza. This wasn't Chicago-style pizza though, it was a super trendy new pizza joint in their neighborhood that was incredible! We had such a blast with these two hearing about wedding plans, talking about our crazy dogs, and hearing stories about Brandon's job in the Chicago Police Dept. It felt like a double date with old friends and we can't wait to see them again soon for their wedding!
