Grand Rapids Wedding Photographer // Josh & Deja!

Josh & Deja were married last weekend on a gorgeous, hot & sunny June Saturday!  Deja has been a good friend of my sister’s for many years now…and has became my friend as well over the past few years!  We pretend to be Josh’s friend too 😉  (jkjk..!).

We were fortunate enough to be able to photograph their engagement twice.  Once at Lake Michigan and once in Arizona where they currently live!  We had a blast both times!

Deja’s dress was so pretty and looked perfect on her!

Loved these toasts!

Josh loves to sew…..sooo….he decided to make Deja a pillow to give to her at their wedding reception.  The material he used was an old t-shirt that said “I’m working on my sixpack”.  The same shirt he was wearing when they first met.  Classic!

The Barn in New Era sure makes a gorgeous backdrop for a wedding.  The up-lighting in these photos makes all the difference too!

It was the night of the “Supermoon”.  It wasn’t that super…but still a nice shot!

Josh wanted to pretend that he was holding it…so we obliged…
