Trisha + Ryan // Northern Michigan Wedding Photographer // The Homestead December 12, 2014 Leave a Fabulous Comment
July 2014 - The Homestead, Glen Arbor Michigan
Northern Michigan in the summer is hands down the best place to be. Ever. Who out there agrees?
And Trisha+Ryan’s wedding day was filled with all of the good that makes me love what I do so much. Their pretty palette of greys and pinks and creams are a favorite. Enjoy a few pictures from their wedding day!

Most of you who follow me here on this blog know that I love photographing weddings, people in love and other life-changing events…babies, growing families. All of the good.
But my other passion, truly since childhood, has been animals. I love them. I stop on the side of the road if I see one near a fence line. I find excuses to make myself near them at every opportunity. I often dream of having a hobby farm filled with many that I can take care of daily. Perhaps when life slows down one day.
I love animals.
The past three years I have been working on photographing them. Cataloging them into my hard drives. Because I thought maybe someday I might do something with them. To share them with others. To show others their beauty and grace through my eyes. A few years ago a friend of mine pushed me to enter a contest through Minted. I got two editor’s awards and have sold many copies to other animal lovers. West Elm started selling them. I started really dreaming then.
Fresh off having some prints in Middle West in October, I finally got a website together to start selling some of my favorites. I am excited to announce my new Print Shop at www.amycarrollprintshop.com.
New stock will be added soon and some will be limited addition only. If you are local to the West Michigan area, you can pick up some prints at a little holiday pop up shop happening here.
For those who have encouraged this dream, thank you.
Sam is 40 // Celebrating A Friend Who Inspires // Grand Rapids Photographer December 9, 2014 2 Fabulous Comments
Catching right up from the summertime here friends. While I have not blogged much this past year, it certainly wasn’t for lack of shooting. Quite the opposite in fact. And now that the winter months are upon us, I intend to showcase some of my favorite shoots from this past year.
Which brings me to this happy face right here. This girl. This is Sam. Shutter Sam. And she turned 40 this summer.
Most of us dread 40. In our 30s it looms over us like a dark storm we see on the horizon. Many of us remember our parents turning 40 (and the fact that it seemed, well, old). And then here is my lovely friend, breaking all the rules. Not scared. Not waxing poetic about her 20s and 30s and how they will be missed. Nope…this girl be celebrating.
Thank you for the lesson, friend.
Jessica+Eric are planning a Northern Michigan wedding next summer. And any couple who is planning a Northern Michigan wedding is a pretty rad couple in my book.
Enjoy their simple + sweet engagement pictures highlighting the pretty colors we had this fall (and how pretty is Jess? Gorgeous right?)

Danyelle+Paul had a grand affair this summer for their mid-summer wedding. One of my favorite Michigan venues, amazing food+drink, lovely details, even a caricaturist! Enjoy a small sampling of their beautiful wedding and enjoy love at its finest.
