Marc Photography Blog – West Michigan, Grand Rapids, Holland photographers bio picture
  • hello there

    We are Andrew & Tiffany Kraker, a husband and wife team located in Zeeland, Michigan.

    Marc Photography started as a way for Andrew to expand his love for photography and expensive cameras, but quickly turned into our passion. Our business not only supports our family, but is also a big part of our family! You'll realize this after seeing the endless photos of our girls, Kenlie & Audyn (who are both crazy!!)

Mr. & Mrs. Haverdink!

I think it’s safe to say that I officially feel like family with this group! One of our associates from a few years ago photographed Dinah’s twin sister, Rachel’s wedding. A few short weeks ago, I had the opportunity to photograph Rachel’s new little baby Zachary (those photos are on facebook!) and now, Andrew and I got to share in Dinah & Ryan’s big day.

We actually started off their day exactly like we did for their engagement session – behind the museum in downtown Zeeland. However, this time around there was not snow up to our thighs!:-)They had their reception at the Holland Fish & Game Club, so we headed there for some photos after we finished up downtown.

One of my favorite details from their wedding (besides the adorable flower girls!) was their cake. It was simple, yet gorgeous, and was actually made by the same person who made our wedding cake. Fun!

moving

Over the last few weeks, our life has changed quite a bit! We sold our first family home and are waiting to close on our new house (and studio!)

We moved out of our old house about a week before we actually had the closing on it, so that gave me a great opportunity to take the girls over there to capture them seeing the house for the last time. So bitter sweet… many tears were cried over leaving our first home. But with leaving, bigger (literally) and better things will come.

Our new house, which is in the country, gives us more space to grow. The property also includes a separate building which we will use as a studio instead of our rented space in downtown Zeeland. As more and more of our work is on-location, finding a house with room for our business has been our goal since day 1 of opening Marc Photography.

And here’s our last family photo at the Harrison Avenue House…

Every year, around our anniversary, I make sure that I get my wedding dress out and try it on. This year, Kenlie asked if she could put it on as well. “Of course!” I said!:-)lol

So, I quickly curled her hair and let her climb on into my dress. We had so much fun, maybe next year Audyn will want to try it on as well.:-)

I’ve noticed lately during receptions that the father-daughter dance really gets me choked up sometimes. I think about our girls on their wedding day and can’t help but know it will be a bittersweet day. I’ll be sure to show Kenlie, my little love, how adorable she was in my wedding dress.
