Naomi and Trevor are the kind of people who make you feel at home instantly. They’re warm and funny, and they even took the time to give me a little tour of Grand Rapids. When Naomi wrote to me about photographing their wedding, she told me a bit about their story: they were engaged on the shore of Lake Michigan on a secret date that Trevor planned (they switch off taking each other on secret adventures, how awesome is that?) – it was the middle of winter, and Naomi thought Trevor had hidden snowshoes for them. Instead, she opened her eyes to see him down on one knee with a ring. After I heard this and got to know them a bit, I knew it would be worth traveling to the spot they were engaged to take photos. I’m so glad we did, because the whole day was amazing.
