Solo & Carla || Garden Wedding - Video Teaser

I have known Carla for a long time, in fact she was a photo assistant with me for a while! So I was very happy and honored that they would ask me to be their photographer!! It was a great wedding. The Storm Clouds threaten to make the day a rainy one, but the in the end the sun came out and made it a great day. My Bud and Wedding Photographer Holly Meyers of Photos from the Heart was my 2nd. It was a nice garden wedding held in Carla's parent's backyard. A couple of big tents, a few close friends made this day truely special.

Sergio & Katie || Wedding

I have known Katie since she was a child and her parents even longer, so it was a great honor when they asked me to photograph their wedding. The wedding was held at Mount Hope Church. Mount Hope is huge and they did a pretty good job of filling it up;) It is home base for me so I always know it is going to be a great wedding when I shoot there…. lots of light! The reception was held at the popular Lansing Center! It was a hot sticky day out side but nice and cool inside. The Lansing Center is a great location. It is right on the Grand River in Lansing, Michigan. Lots of wonderful places to photograph couples. Love the Gazebo! Enjoy the photographs.

Greg Nagy :: Blue Cruise 2010

I got a chance tonight to check out the Michigan Princes Riverboat and take my wife on the first Blues Cruise of the year! It was a great night for a paddle boat ride and to sit back and listen to some great Blues by guitarist Greg Nagy and his band. If you have never been on the Blues Cruise you got to go and check it out. The cruise is usually the first Friday of the month. The band usually starts around 8:00 PM and goes most of the night. At 9:00 the boat leaves the dock and crusies the river until 11:00. The admission is only $15! Docking is at 3004 West Main Street, Lansing, MI.

James & April :: Winter Wedding

James & April got engaged over the Christmas break 2009 and married in Januaryv2010. April went to school with my son Matthew, so I was exited when they called me and asked me to do their wedding. There wasn't a lot of time to prepair, but, the wedding was just as beautiful as some weddings I have done that took a year to plan. I love winter weddings! It snowed most of the day so getting to the church was a little tricky, good thing I have all wheel drive. At the end of the day we went "outside" to enjoy some of the winter wildness!!

Chad & Lauren Testimonial


Coming from myself, Lauren, and my family, we would like to thank you so much for the incredible photography you have provided us with. We could not be more pleased with every single aspect of our experience with you. You were very easy to work with, communicated with us regularly, and captured amazing photos! We are soooo glad that we decided to go with the higher of the two packages we were contemplating. I must admit that prior to our experience with you, I was somewhat a skeptic about spending large money on photography for weddings. After our experience with you, I will always highly recommend spending as much as you can afford to ensure a great photography experience. Having said that, we strongly believe your prices are extremely reasonable for the quality (and quantity) of photography you provide. This is especially true when comparing you to the competition. We also enjoyed your very straight forward pricing system. From researching other photographers, we noticed some of them try to nickel-and-dime their customers. This was not the case when working with you.

Readdressing the most important aspect of the photography...the quality. Your quality of work is truly amazing! In both viewing your work and talking with you, it is very obvious that you have a lot of photography experience that leads to jaw dropping and tear inducing photos, albums, and videos. No amount of photography equipment or editing software can make up for lack of experience. So, while others may brag about their cameras and photoshop abilities, it is merely a diversion due to their lack of experience. Your experience is ultimately what leads to amazing photos that will be cherished forever! (Not to say you don't have fancy cameras and great editing abilities, because you do!)

A final note on the cost of photography. I can honestly say that the money we spent on photography...no let me reword that...Marvin Hall's photography, was the best money spent when compared to anything else for the wedding. Better than the flowers, tuxes, dresses, food, etc. For that, we thank you more than any one of our other vendors for your services. You have provided us with photos, albums, and videos that our entire family will cherish forever!

Thank you again so much!
