It was another beautiful end of summer wedding with Ali & Andy at Hilltop Memory Makers in Coral, Michigan. These two love birds have been together for 8 years, and have such a beautiful love for one another. Their day was so gorgeous, from the lovely overcast skies, to the sprinkles of rain during their first dances. It was quit magical to say the least.
We started the day with a first look with Ali’s father, her ladies, and then most importantly, Ali & Andy. Ali looked absolutely stunning in her Maggie Sottero gown. She looked like she was straight out of a fairytale. Andy clearly felt overwhelmingly so the same when he saw her during their first look. The day was filled with great love, emotion, and heart-left genuine kindness.
The ceremony gave us all the feels. From their two furbabies walking down the aisle, to some tender hearted vows. It was wonderful! We then headed to the reception, filled with great toasts, and ended the night dancing in the rain! As you will see, the misting rain was captured so magically. Just fit their day to-a-T!
Thank you Ali & Andy so much for being some of the sweetest clients, and sharing your wedding day with us. We couldn’t thank you enough for choosing us to document it all. Congratulations to you both! Praying you have a blessed marriage for a lifetime to come!

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!
