What a dream of a day, wow! I first met Haley while I was photographing homecoming dresses for a boutique, and she was one of the models! We followed each other on Instagram, and I remember always loving seeing her posts with (boyfriend at the time) Josh. About a year and a half later, I got a DM from Haley on Instagram asking about wedding details as her and Josh talked about their future and she though they would be getting engaged soon 🙂 Shortly after finding a date that worked well for us, Josh proposed & I officially added these two to my calendar for their August wedding!
Fast forward to their downtown Chicago engagement session…absolutely amazing! These two nailed it, and I was convinced they were the real-life version of Barbie + Ken. I was obsessed with their whole engagement session (and so were most of my instagram followers, lol)! I left their session even more excited for their wedding day. See their engagement session HERE.
This past weekend, it was finally their wedding day, and we were SO EXCITED to head up to Holland, MI for their big day. Ashton and I have gotten to travel to so many different states to photograph and film weddings this year, and this was our first time heading to Michigan! The morning started so smoothly, with an organized morning prep, beautiful details, and a gorgeous getting ready space at Riley James Salon near Holland. After getting ready, we headed to Baker Lofts for their first look, portraits, ceremony and reception!
If you can’t tell by how massive this blog post is, we absolutely love these two and could have kept them in front of our cameras for hours and hours more 🙂 So so excited to share some of my favorites of their day today!

I’ll be eagerly waiting to read and respond to your email, probably getting distracted by my own engagement ring while I type back! Oh, and my dachshund pup, Ginny is wagging her tail in excitement-she’s hoping she can meet you someday too!
