By Jamie May Photography: Nathan and Emily are such cuties! They are off to Florida because Nathan is serving our country and is based in Florida. They got married and had their reception at the Watermark church in Grand Haven. I always love when they play the shoe game, and they added a unique twist with the bridal party putting in their feedback. All and all it was a great day and I am so happy for this couple!!! Many blessing!!! Soak up the sun for me in Florida. One of my favorite places to visit!!! xoxo
By Jamie May Photography: It has been wonderful getting to know Marie and Troy (and their mom Lorie). Marie and Troy have a very fun and laid back approach and are so easy to be around. This was the first time I have been at Camp Blodgett. It is a quaint, with beautiful views and access to Lake Michigan. Marie and Troy have a beautiful baby girl, she was such a doll. She let me steal a few pictures here and there. Wishing your family the very best and many years of happiness!! Stay in touch. xoxo! I am not much of a writer so I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking.
By Jamie May Photography: Jenna and Kevin got married at Spring Lake Country Club. It is so pretty down by the water with the willow tree and the dock. I love that the skies were so blue and all the clouds! It was awesome. We had a wonderful day and evening. Jenna and Kevin saw each other before the ceremony. I just love when people do a first look reveal. It makes the day so nice to get all the pictures accomplished before the wedding starts! Everything was so beautiful, the bride, the details, the dancing ,etc!! So happy for the both of them!!!
By Jamie May Photography: Erin and Kris were such a riot! We had so much fun and we always love taking pictures at the Trillium. The outside grounds is so beautiful!!

By Jamie May Photography: Well if rain brings luck, Emily and Kyle are going to have a lucky marriage. It rained the WHOLE day for them. Despite the rain, we captured some great pictures of this sweet couple! Her mom has a beautiful home and well manicured yard. I was so thankful because it gave us a wonderful opportunity to still be outside in the rain. Emily and Kyle have a wonderful support system and a ton of friends and family that were there to celebrate their wedding. We had a lot of fun and I am so happy to know both of them!!! Emily’s dress was just stunning and she may have had my favorite flowers of all time. They were so beautiful! So happy to be a part of your wedding!! xoxoxo
By Jamie May Photography: We had a beautiful day in Grand Haven for Elizabeth and Stephen’s wedding! We started with a first look which is always such a fantastic moment. I love that we had a lot of time to take pictures and we were not rushed. We went to downtown Grand Haven and then headed over to the pier. They had their ceremony and reception at Grand Haven Golf Course. They always do a wonderful job there. Elizabeth and Stephen are so great! I knew they were both smart, but had no idea until her dad’s speech! They both met at Grand Valley State University studying Geology. Elizabeth went on to be a doctor in Nuclear something or other. And has wrote many esteemed articles and documents. And they are now on their way soon to Hawaii to live. I am so happy for the both of you!! Wishing you many happy days. Thanks so much for hiring me to be a part of your wedding!
By Jamie May Photography: I met Kate and Alex and her mom almost a year and a half ago and we had so much fun when we met. It was an instant connection! I was so excited when they chose me to be their wedding photographer. Kate had a princess theme and it all came together beautifully. We took some pictures after the ceremony at Downtown Rockford. It is always a great spot. Then we headed over to Thousand Oaks Golf Club. This was one wedding were everyone was dancing! It was so fun to watch and be a part of. Kate did a special tribute to her mom and dad because they were unable to dance to their song at their wedding, so that was a tear jerker! The DJ did an awesome job getting the crowd involved. It was a great night. I was so thankful to be a part of it!!! Wishing you many more wonderful night!!! xoxoxo!
By Jamie May Photography: Shane and Sarah are such sweet people. They are so in love and so happy. They were so cute to watch. They contacted me from a referral from their friend. Shane was a groomsman in a wedding I did last year. So it was great to see some old friends and reconnect. It also is the biggest compliment I can have when people refer me to their friends! So appreciated!!!
Shane and Sarah got married at a church in Grand Rapids and had their reception at Douglas Walker Park. This park has a quaint building that is perfect for a reception.( I believe you can also have your ceremony at this site too) It is especially great on a nice day because there is a lot of areas to go outside. Sarah had a lot of charming details and did such a great job putting her wedding together. We even mimicked some of the old wedding photos of her grandparents, which was a cool idea. She gave us lots of time to take photos which made it nice. They started with a first look which I always love. Even though we had a lot of downtime, the groomsmen never complained once which is awesome! They are all a nice group of people. They did a sparkler send off at 9:00ish, and the rest of us had fun at the end of the night messing around with sparklers. Thanks for letting me share in your wonderful day!!! Best Wishes to you both!!!
By Jamie May Photography: Jon and Christy’s wedding may go down as on of the most unique weddings I have ever done. Christy is a artist and I knew once I saw here invitation that their whole day would be one of a kind. The invitation was a story that she wrote and animated about them. They also love Pokeman and she papier-mached all her center pieces. She also loves rainbows and clouds and skies. So her cake was a rainbow cake. It was so pretty inside and out. Jon and Christy have amazing sweet family and friends. We had such a nice time with them all. They also had a drawing contest at their wedding that focused on their love for art. Jon and Christy were so in love; they could not stop looking and smiling at each other. Their excitement and love for each other made photographing them so easy. I wish them many more years of rainbows, pokeman and happiness!!!! Best Wishes guys and blessings to you and your families!!!
