By Jamie May Photography: All we can hope for in a day came in alignment for this wonderful Fredrick Meijer Garden wedding. Beautiful weather, beautiful couple, beautiful setting and plenty of time to take pictures! YAY. It was comparable to a day in paradise when the location is so awesome and you actually have time to capture it! This wedding gave me so much joy! It is so neat to see renewed hope and love in couples. Brian and Colleen had perm-a-grins all day! They are so natural and comfortable with each other, they made my job so easy!! Thanks for the awesome day… Many Blessings to you both!!
A gorgeous night at the Blandford Nature Center in Grand Rapids! I was thrilled to meet Hillery and Nick there! Hillery is so photogenic! So she was a breeze to take pictures of, and they look so cute together. We had a really good time walking around the center and finding some beautiful spots to take pictures. Hillery brought along a few fun props for her save the dates. It is always so fun to learn about a couples story! Hillery and Nick have known each other since they have been 15! I am so happy for the both of them.
Thank you for hiring me to take your engagement pictures!!
I was happy to be contacted by Melissa about her wedding, but came to find out I already had that day booked 😦 ! I was so excited and flattered that she wanted me to still do the engagement pictures! Yay!! I love engagement pictures. They are so fun!! They are a super sweet couple. I felt bad for Chad coming off of third shift, we had a few yawns in there 😉 But I know pictures aren’t usually too exciting to guys as they are to us, girls! They were awesome though! And all the guys I take pictures of are more of trooper than my husband, who when it comes to pictures he gives me about a half an hour to get our family pictures (4 little kids in our family!) That is almost impossible! Anyways, Melissa picked up her pictures the other day and told me that Chad asked her, ‘why isn’t she doing our pictures? She made me feel so comfortable.’ I thought that was soooo nice!!
I wish you the best of luck! I hope you have a richly blessed marriage!!
Thank you Chad and Melissa – be sure to email me some wedding pictures!
Steve and Marie are getting married! I am so excited to be a part of their engagement and wedding! We had a blast taking pictures. We had a bit of a chilly day, but good for March. I was so thrilled to see the red suitcase they found at Goodwill. I sure am a big fan of Goodwill. They found the frame their too and just took the picture out. So we had some fun props to work with. I had so many creative pictures, by the end I was saying, NO more creative pictures. We need some normal ones 😉 Marie looked at me and said, that is okay we like the creative ones. So, of course, we did more!!
Thanks Steve+ Marie for hiring me to be your wedding photographer!

I just so enjoy Heidi and of course Matt too! Heidi is one of those ladies who is easy to be around. She is super friendly and talkative. I was so pumped when they asked me to be their wedding photographer!! They love a vintage look and she has some awesome ideas for her wedding. I can’t wait to see it all come together.
It was a very sunny day, but cold and windy. I was glad we were in the woods because it helped!
I got to meet Heidi’s sister, who was a great help to me and responsible for doing Heidi’s hair and make-up. She did a fantastic job. And I also got to meet ‘the reason’ the two of them are together – their dog Maggie! I can’t wait to hear the rest of the story.
Thanks Heidi and Matt!
I am so looking forward to your wedding day!!!

I just love Grand Rapids. It is a great city with a lot of great architecture. It is well cared for too. It was sunny out, but their were people ice skating in Rosa Park. I need to do that some day! Michael and Kate were gracious and drove me around Grand Rapids to some of the spots they scooped out earlier in the week. Kate is very artistic too and they found some amazing spots! It was so fun!
Kate and Michael are sweet people and made me feel very comfortable (like I was hanging around some old friends 😉 )
I am so happy for the both of them. You can tell they just love to be together and enjoy each other very much.
Looking forward to their wedding!!
Thanks Michael and Kate!!!
