Mandi + Jack

This year is chalking up to be the best year yet for Brandon Shafer Photography! I am honored to have the opportunity to shoot at all of my favorite GR venues: The Cheney Place, Grand Rapids Public Museum and now the Bissell Tree House at John Ball Zoo for the wedding of Jack & Mandi!

This couple had an amazingly beautiful wedding and their timeline gave us a few hours to spare, so we were able to get some really great shots in unique places around the city! We started with a first look in the tall trees at Provin Trails then moved on to some bridal party portraits around Robinettes. After the ceremony, we had some time to capture some artistic wall murals on Ionia St before heading to the tree house. I had to ride on a "funicular" to reach the wedding venue that was on top of a hill - can’t say I’ve ever done that before!

I had such a fun day at this wedding – cheers, Jack & Mandi!
