Dan & Kim|Married|Kelly Braman Grand Rapids, MI Wedding Photography


September 29, 2011

Boy, I sure have been blessed with such Amazing Clients! I know I have said that many times before, but I truly do mean it! God has brought such loving & thoughtful people into my life and I am grateful!  Dan and Kim and their families completely fall into that category!  I spoke with Kim’s mom many times on the phone and via email and I knew right from the beginning how close she was to not only Kim, but her family!  I do not get to talk to the groom’s parents prior to the wedding day, but Dan’s family and sisters were just as sweet!

I adore weddings in general and when you add that LOVE factor…it is such a sweet and sentimental day!  You can just “feel” the joy and emotion and you will see from the images I captured how much Love was a part of this wedding! I had a hard time narrowing down the images for this post! So many great moments! I also want to thank my dear friend and wonderful photographer, Karyn May for shooting with me:) Love you, Kmay:)


Kim and Dan…thank you for allowing me to document your Love!  You are two are one of the sweetest, kindest, loving couples I have met and it was an honor to be a part of your day. Kim…you are just a sweetheart. You and your sister’s relationship was so touching to witness and your parents have much to be proud of:)  Dan is the perfect compliment to you and I know you will have such a strong and happy marriage:) (plus Norman:))

I hope your honeymoon was just perfect!

I Loved the ties on these chairs and the floral was beautiful!
