No one can deny that Michigan is incredible in the fall. And that sun oooof that sun has straight up healing power. It amazes me how photography is something that's an absolute responsibility, but I can honestly say that there are so many aspects of it that are therapeutic. I get to escape the worries and cares of an overbooked lifestyle and just take a hike. Hang out and get to know humans I've never met before. Learn their story. Explore creativity and chase the coolest landscapes and drive out to the middle of nowhere and get annoyed by teeny things like the sun flickering through the trees into my eyes. So today I am so thankful for this job that quite often doesn't feel like a job. And no this is not a #blessed post. Jump in my life for one day to see a whole laundry list of not great things. But I'm still going to be thankful because thankfulness is a choice, not a hand you are dealt. And with that my monologue is now over because I haven't eaten yet and it's almost 8:30 😟

These two! Their day was absolutely chaotic & they both handled it with the upmost grace. They were just happy they were becoming one. ❤️

fall is so pretty. 🍂

my double wedding weekend included rain, sun, hail, snow, wind, and a lot, a lot of pretty pictures. Stay tuned & enjoy this beauty from Alissa & Trent’s wedding!

It’s a double post day because - y’all - IT’S EMMA 2’S BIRTHDAY 🎂 🎉🎈🍾⠀

This girl is really the best, and here’s a list of things she’s amazing at: ⠀

1️⃣ Seriously, she’s the breakdown queen. Find us another person who can breakdown a wedding with record speed and accuracy, good luck.⠀

2️⃣ Not only does she tear down with the speed of a velociraptor, her set up talents are 💯- give this chick a vision and she will execute flawlessly.⠀

3️⃣ She is seriously hilarious, on wedding days, she is our go to for a laugh 😂 ⠀

4️⃣ She will take whatever you throw at her. Want her to cut arch florals down in the dark - she’s there. Loading a car in the pouring rain - bring it on. She will go with the flow regardless of the situation. ⠀

5️⃣ She’s always up for Whitney dancing with us 👯‍♀️⠀

Love you so much OT - have the best day today! ⠀

💕 ⠀

A beautiful mauve for a beautiful fall day!

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone. Our last wedding of 2018 is this weekend, I truly can’t believe it! This will be my last wedding before baby K arrives in February!
We’ve almost been in South Bend for a year! We seriously love traveling for weddings, we have had Michigan weddings, Illinois weddings & sessions all over!
I feel so blessed to be able to photograph so many amazing couples & moments!
Thank you for making it another great year!

Where you at February?!? 😍

Don’t you just want to chill with your ladies?⠀

We do. ⠀

It’s so cup-filling to be with people who care about us, and who we care about. On your wedding day, we want your cup to be overflowing. We will help you make the space to be with your people, and to enjoy your time together - it’s our favorite thing. ⠀

"Liv is so talented, that her work could speak for itself, but as anyone who's had the pleasure of working with her before knows, you can't just let that happen. You impulsively have to tell everyone you know how truly incredible she is. Liv photographed our engagement and marriage. Every time I look at my wedding photos, her photojournalistic style not brings me right back to that day and how happy I felt, but also reminds me of how comfortable Liv made me feel. She's a permanent part of our wedding memories in all the right ways, and there was no way to know before my wedding how badly I needed that. She was supportive, she was kind, she was reassuring, and she made us look and feel fantastic. We're going to treasure these gorgeous photos forever, but my husband and I above all treasure the relationship and the experience we have with Liv. You won't find a better human being to capture your most important moments.... it's not just your photographer behind the lens, she's your cheerleader, your ally, and your friend." @morgankarab and @abeepskamp ❤️.

October’s in Michigan are filled with snuggles in apple orchards, hot cider and hail? This weekend was crazy in Michigan and the weather couldn’t make up its mind. Alice and Joe weathered the storm and their engagement session was a huge success! Look how cute they are! •
