Grand Rapids Wedding Photography – Kristy Berends Photography bio picture
  • I'm Kristy Berends, and thanks for visiting my photography blog! I studied photography in college, back in the days of film and medium format and gained all the tools to start a photography career but continue to learn and improve my techniques and master all aspects of portrait photography. I love working with people, and believe every person is uniquely beautiful. My style is best described as natural, bright, and relaxed. I love capturing the vivid life of my clients and giving them images that they can cherish forever. I am based out of Grand Rapids, MI but am open to travel the rest of the state, country, and beyond. In addition to photography, what I love the most is spending time with my husband and two sweet sons, friends, and enjoying the sunshine outdoors when it comes our way!

Traverse City Wedding Photography – Polly and Ryan

Although they live in Bolivia, and enjoy all the travel they can possibly fit in, Polly and Ryan returned to Traverse City, where Polly grew up, for a gorgeous, simple, and heartfelt wedding ceremony overlooking the Grand Traverse Bay. Perfect sunshine, lawn games, delicious drinks and food, and especially great friends and family made the day so sweet and full of wonderful memories! There wasn’t a dry eye among their friends and family as they committed their lives together with vows they had written for each other. There were so many personal touches throughout the whole day, from Polly’s gorgeous gown (designed by her and made in Bolivia) to the monogrammed lawn games – sure to come out at many family gatherings down the road. I’m so happy to share these favorites that highlight their wedding day from start to finish. Congratulations to you both!!
