Carolyn and Zack were married in Zack’s hometown of Saugatuk, Michigan. The girls got ready at Zach’s family home and gorgeous property. So much happy energy and anticipation was in that home when we arrived! It was the perfect day for a wedding 65 degrees and sunny. We so enjoyed spending the day with them. Everyone was so kind and all about having a good time and just enjoying this special day for Carolyn and Zack.
We’ve been together for 7 years. We met through work at family & children services. We didn’t date right away. One day after an exhausting 2nd shift, Zack and I (and one other coworker) went to Up & Under for drinks. I won $100 on pull tabs and it was uphill since then.
Niagra falls (the Canadian side) he proposed in front of the waterfall.
As you can see, Carolyn is a gorgeous Egyptian goddess on her wedding day. She told Zack as we were taking pictures, I can’t wait to see what our baby looks like some day. Oh my goodness, will that be one CUTE baby!! 🙂
Carolyn, you were just a dream to photograph, you looked AMAZING!!!!!!
Going on adventures, traveling different countries, experiencing new cultures, fishing, and of course spending the holidays in the Bahamas
First looks are just so so fun, I love watching the anticipation build for the couple. The grooms are nervous, letting out a deep breath when we say she is on her way. It’s that moment they think about and envision and we always want it to be THAT special!!!
Zack’s best memory- a lot, but mainly the first look
My best memory- too many to count, but I loved Zack’s impromptu “organized dances” with his buddies to 90’s boy band songs
They were all about pictures, love couples like this. We gad so much fun with her veil!!
Mt. Bald Head staircase is a famous landmark in Saugatuk. That staircase is so steep. I climbed it last year, it’s no joke. I was quite relieved to hear they did not want to climb it that day. Hauling camera gear up those stairs would have serious done me in! 😉
We really wish we could of talked to all of our guests. The first 2 tables we visited with talked to us for soooo long. I wish we would of planned that a bit better.
Zack talked Carolyn into going to the beach for these photographs, she was a little hesitant and he told her YOU WILL NOT REGRET THIS…YOU ARE GOING TO WANT THESE PHOTOS. Good man right there!!
It’s hard to say, there has been so many. I’d say recently, it’s agreeing on a county to live in.
Our trip to Greece in June 2017 was the best
Do you see the image above….Zack skipped out of the ceremony site with his bride. How cute is that!!
The reception site was a mix of elegance with rustic….Zack is a big outdoors sportsman. So they incorporated his loves into the design and it was so unique!!!
Buying a house, being patient with each other, and having fun!
They had a blast dancing the night away!!
