Tierney and Colin will be getting married on Saturday at the Downtown Market Grand Rapids! We were able to fit in their engagement session this week as the Hops at Pure Mitten Hops were in full bloom. Both Tierney and Colin share a love for beer so getting photos with the hops was a MUST!
“When two souls fall in love, there is nothing else but the
yearning to be close to the other. The presence that is felt
through a hand held, a voice heard, or a smile seen.” -Lang Leav
We finished out the session at Founders Brewing Co. where Colin initially proposed to Tierney. What a great way to come full circle in their relationship.
Also, today is Tierney's birthday, so a big happy birthday goes out to the bride!
Over the years we have enjoyed photographing various events and weddings at The Cheney Place. This venue offers a tasteful, rustic feel that helps bring people’s vision to life. The Cheney Place hides behind an old warehouse facade. Upon entering you instantly realize that the warehouse facade on the exterior sets you up to walk into a massive urban boutique event space which is where your amazement sets in.Read More
Photography is about building relationships with the clients, growing a close relationship and really getting to know each other. When doing so you build a life long friendships, clients that come to you for all your photo needs, including family, wedding, seniors and newborn even boudoir shoots! All seven of us don’t just take photos we build the shoots and build connections. We believe that is what makes us different here at The People Picture Company!

Autumn and Tierney had the pleasure to get to know Ali and Ken more during their engagement session back in May. They are truly "two peas in a pod"! All four of us couldn't stop laughing the whole time.
The one thing that "We" The People Picture Company strive for is having clients to really connect with. By the time the wedding comes we like to feel more like a family than just a business/customer relationship. Having clients like Ali and Ken really makes all of us love what we do and is a prime example of why we do what we do!
Autumn and Tierney cannot wait to photograph their wedding on October 6th!Read More
The story of Hunchback of Notre Dame isn't quite a happy Disney movie as one may think. Quasimodo (played by Jack Reeves) fell in love with a gypsy Esmerelda (played by Gabrielle Rabon) which in turn was a three-way crush between the guard Played by Jacob Kenney). Frollo, Quasimodo keeper set the gypsy on fire for not following his orders which ultimately led to her death. In the end, Esmerelda was held by Quasimodo until their last breath.
Watching these highschoolers preform this Remarkable play was worth watching again and again!
We are so thrilled having the pleasure to get to know these amazing kids and watching their acting grow!Read More

This past Sunday, Bri traveled to St. Joseph, MI and captured their session in the comfort of their home. Elyse had shared a mood board with her and the first photo that caught Bri's eye was one where the momma-to-be was sitting on a counter in the kitchen. Elyse told Bri that each morning her and Kevin make coffee together. Also, Elyse and Kevin are coffee connoisseurs. They'd even talked about opening their own coffee shop one day. So, that's where the session started, in their kitchen, re-creating their morning coffee routine.Read More
This month we had the privilege to photograph triplets right before they made their debut on the news!
Gold Coast Doulas contacted us since we partner with them on many things and told us how one of their clients had triplets. We were excited to be a part of telling their story and incorporating why it's such a great idea to have a little extra help when you are raising triplets.
Post-partum support is a big part of Gold Coast Doula's mission. Many of the doulas offer support to mothers who have just had one baby, but it's extremely essential for those who have had multiples in making sure mom gets some time to rest as well as coordinating feeding and naps for more than one babe at once. Take a look at our fun triplet photo shoot and see what the doulas help with in the home!
December 30th, 2017, Aaron and Jessica said "I do"
While we got to watch their love transpire through these powerful photos, we were also able to document their day using the power of video production, something that we are now offering!
This day could not have gone any smoother. From the very beginning, Jessica and Aaron were thrilled to be married in less than 6 hours, each of them shared incredible moments between their friends and family and you could feel the love in the room.
Take a look at these photos and see for yourself just how amazing this day was!Read More
This year we tried something new in order to make our studio stand out. Adam built a wall for us to use during our trade shows, but we are thrilled that it will also be doubling as a studio background as well.
This is something that we have wanted for a long time and now Adam has made it a reality. With this reality came many challenges, but we wanted to share his step by step process and his accomplishment.Read More
As I am sitting here looking out the window, I am gazing out at the snow looking back on when days were longer and the weather was warmer.
This session was such a joy! These two married a year prior to this shoot and since they never had great photos taken they wanted to have the engagement session experience. This was a chance for Sarah to get all dolled up in her wedding dress once more. The amount of love and silliness that these two have is undeniable, it is no wonder that their son is the same way.
I wish these two, nothing but happiness in their future endeavors.
Congratulations once more Sarah and Santiago!
This year we decided to try something new for our family Christmas minis. We created our own take on Santa in order to make it more fun!
We finally celebrated our Hipster Santa event at 6.25 Paper Studio! Families, children and a hip hound named Zada showed up to take their photos in some of the most eclectic outfits. Even the Mayor Rosalynn Bliss came out to have her photo taken with hipster Santa.
Everyone had so much fun and we could not be happier with the results from this years Christmas minis.Read More
