WEDDING: Leo and Samantha

Franklin, Michigan

Samantha and Leo’s love story began on the first day of Leo’s freshmen year at Kalamazoo College when they met. They were friends for a couple years first — the way all good relationships start — and have been a couple for many years since. Thirty years ago, the bride’s parents had their wedding in the same place. The bride wore borrowed pearls and her engagement ring was made from her grandmother’s. Although the rain caused a few logistical challenges, seeing these two surrounded with such great tradition, love and joy made all that seem insignificant. The emotional ceremony had everyone in tears and then, like magic, the sun came out and soaked underneath the tent and left the evening with a quick, golden sunset.

    Kendra, these pictures are gorgeous! You consistently capture meaningful moments, look for beautiful light and find details that many other photographers overlook. This is just another example of what makes you one of the best photographers in our state and it makes me miss working along side you on a newspaper photo staff.

    • Oh, thank you, Cory! Even with some rainy weather, it was still a gorgeous wedding. Your words mean a lot to me and I certainly miss working with you, too.
