It has been a pleasure getting to know Dante and Ruth over the past year. We were introduced to them through Ruth's father Ralph, a realtor in Grand Rapids who we have known for many years. He mentioned his daughter was getting married and wondered if we would be able to photograph her wedding day.
Unfortunately we were already booked for the date, but thankfully we have a great team of associate photographers that we could connect with them. Jason and Tara, who have worked alongside us for the past several years, photographed their wedding day, along with another photographer friend, Ed.
Earlier in the year, Jason and Tara photographed Dante and Ruth's engagement photos from the Gerald R Ford Airport. In case you haven't seen their engagement photos, I'd recommend checking out the session as there are few times couples are able to have access to the airport like Dante and Ruth had.
