Adeline | Six Months

I spent a sunny October afternoon at Wolcott Mills Metropark with Adeline and her parents. The fall colors were absolutely amazing. Except not as amazing as Adeline's giggle. She might be the happiest baby I've ever met. I can just hear her belly laugh in these images. Enjoy!             ...

Pipesh Wedding | Shelby, MI

The joy was felt everywhere in Amanda and Chris' wedding day. Their love radiated through each guest, moment and that gorgeous light all day. They were married in September at the Historic Packard Proving Grounds. What an amazing wedding venue full of so much history. I loved the juxtaposition of them starting a new chapter of their journey together inside those old buildings and grounds. That place has endless possibilities for photos. I'm a sucker for a wedding with so many personal details and a couple with good...

Brooke & Justin | Maternity

I photographed Brooke and Justin's wedding in 2012. I'm so excited for them to be welcoming a baby girl and to photograph this next chapter in their life. We started off in their adorable nursery and then headed to Wolcott Mills Metropark for some outdoor pictures. Can't wait to meet their little one! ...

Graw Wedding | Hartland, MI

It's such an honor to document two people's love for each other - especially when it is two of my dear friends. Megan and Collin's wedding day was nothing short of pure love and raw emotion. Their first look will probably always be one of my favorites. While their wedding was absolutely gorgeous, there was nothing prettier than the way these two looked at each other. They were married by Megan's father at St. George Lutheran Church in downtown Brighton. They celebrated the night with family...

Amelia Jo | Newborn

There is nothing that brought me more joy in 2015 as watching my best friend, Erin, become a mother to her sweet little girl, Amelia. I cannot think of two more deserving people to become a mom and dad than Erin and her husband, Dan. Even though I think Dan would argue they became parents when they brought their pup, Wrigley home. (warning: cute baby and puppy overload below) Amelia is the luckiest because she will grow up with the best mom and dad. A couple weeks ago...

Lauren | Class of 2016

Lauren is a senior at Richmond High School. It was such an honor to photograph this time in her life as she is my cousin and all through college I would use her and my little sister as my subjects in photo classes. She was only about 4 years old then and it's hard to believe she is a senior already! We did part of her session in May around downtown Detroit and the Heidelberg Project. The second half of her shoot was done in late October at...

Timmons Wedding | Fair Haven, MI

I love me a backyard wedding. Amanda and Kenny's day was no exception. The ceremony and reception were held on Amanda's grandfather's property in late September. The day was perfect - the ponds, the old cabin, the weather, the light, the sunset, the reflections, the moon, their adorable daughter, their love, the joy and happiness between all, the dance floor. One of the most laid back wedding's I've photographed. It was so hard to edit it down to my favorite images. I hope they will bring...

Olivia | Class of 2016

Olivia is a senior at Richmond High School. She is a girl after my own heart and wants to attend Central Michigan University. We spent an early August morning at Wolcott Mills Metropark and on a family friends property.   ...

Hello World

Welcome to the new blog and Honey & Bell Photography! I'm beyond ecstatic to finally announce this change and for this breath of fresh air. Merissa Ferguson Photography was a great stepping stone into owning my own business but I'm so excited for this new adventure. I've been considering changing my business name since, well, pretty much the first day I named it after myself in 2010. It's been heavy on my mind the last couple years and since I got married in October...
