Amanda and Ben!


bay pointe inn grand rapids wedding photography michigan

I love them.  Like really, really love them. Not only are they amazing people, and a totally gorgeous couple, but they’ve become good friends of ours. We were so happy to spend their day with them, running through fields, down dirt roads, and across docks on the lake.  We made some amazing images together!  Just when we were all done with pictures, everyone had enjoyed a fabulous dinner at Bay Pointe Inn, the music had started, and guests were mingling…  something crazy and amazing happened…

They got on their wakeboards.

They went together, and he did flips over her!


I still can’t believe this happened.

For real.
