Summer weddings have been in full swing, and we were so happy to capture Kristina & Joe’s July wedding. We started the day getting ready at a hotel near the venue in Grand Blanc. Kristina opened up a beautiful and thoughtful gift from her friends, family & Joe. It was full of letters from everyone in the wedding, and even some letters from heaven. Truly so heartfelt! Joe & his guys finished getting ready as well before we all headed over to the venue. We then all took off to Captains Club in Grand Blanc for their wedding.

It had been raining on & off all day. As most michiganders know, this summer has been pretty wet with all the storms we’ve been having. Thankfully, it has yet to put a damper on any of the weddings we have captured this season. Kristina & Joe’s wedding was no exception & everything played out seamlessly.

They both chose to do a heartfelt letter exchange in place of their own personal vows before the ceremony. This is what we call a “First Touch” instead of actually seeing one another. It was so intimate and sweet! We couldn’t help get all the feels when Joe started to shed some tears reading Kristina’s letter. As you will see, it was such a touching moment.

Surrounded by all of their closest friends and family, Kristina & Joe became Mr. & Mrs McKay. Their ceremony was beautiful!  From there, the rain finally let up & we were able to document their photos outdoors. As you will see, their entire wedding day was so gorgeous. I just can’t get over how stunning Kristina looked in her gown.  Of course, Joe looked simply dapper as well, but Kristina was radiant.

It was such an honor to be apart of your wedding day, Kristina & Joe, and I cannot wait to watch your love continue to grow through the years to come. Congratulations you two!

Meet Kate

 I cannot imagine our special day without her. From the moment I inquired back in August of 2020, to our wedding day October 2021, Kate was with us every step of the way. She was amazing at communicating, answering my (many) questions, and making us feel so comfortable in front of the camera! Throughout this process, she\ became a great friend as well. On our wedding day, she made sure we stayed on track with timing, and made it a priority to ensure my husband and I were taken care of. Her positive energy, flexibility, and expertise made the day so much fun and so memorable. Kate perfectly captured our love--her photographs are of the highest quality and have unique touches that represent each of her clients. We are so very thankful that we had Kate be apart of our wedding day. She went above and beyond to make our day everything and more!

We were so lucky to have Katelynn as our photographer! She was truly amazing to work with! We found Katelynn through a friend who had previously booked her for her wedding. Wedding photos were really important to me and I wanted memories that we could cherish for the rest of our lives. After seeing her work, we knew that we wanted her to capture our wedding day! She made coordinating locations and poses stress free. We had a large bridal party and were a little worried about pictures being chaotic, but Katelynn was so patient with everyone and made it look like a breeze! Her kindness radiated all day and our families could not say enough good things about her. She was so great at making us feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera! She also made my sunset and veil photo dreams come true with her amazing photography skills! We are so in love with every picture that she took! She captured the best memories for us and we can’t recommend her enough!
