We started the day at Mad Cap Coffee and Founder’s Brewing Company, two of my absolute favorite places in all of Michigan.
From the ceremony in a wine bar, to commissioning a piece of art created live at their reception, it was a really unique and fun wedding day.
Wedding Ceremony: Reserve wine bar, Grand Rapids

Here’s one frame from a wedding I’ll be blogging soon. Dave and Melanie were married in Grand Rapids and had the first ever wedding at The Reserve wine bar, which is one of my favorite places in the state.
I’m going to finish blogging my 2011 weddings before my 2012 weddings start in March. That’s the plan at least.

I put up some of my favorite engagement and wedding portraits of 2010 a few days ago. Now it’s time for the candids.
Aside from that hour or so designated for portraits on the wedding day, I spend all my time hunting after natural and candid moments. Some call it photojournalism (and I am a member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association) but to me it’s more than just a style of shooting, it’s the core of photography. I am thrilled to consistently receive feedback surprised by how much was captured without people even realizing. That’s my goal: to discretely capture personality and emotion.
Here are some of my favorite moments captured in 2010, all completely without direction, and in most cases not even aware I was photographing:

Okay, I’m doing things a little backwards here and posting engagement photos after the wedding. Elida and Brian were married last week, but since they live in Arizona we weren’t able to do engagement photos until just a few days before the wedding.

This is Melanie and Dave. They met in Grand Rapids, they’re getting married there next summer, so that’s where we shot their engagement photos recently. We started at Founder’s Brewing, wandered around the city, and hit MadCap Coffee along the way. That’s a perfect day in my book.
