Dan Johnson fell in love with photography using a simple point-and-shoot in high school, toting his lens to summer camp, onto rollercoasters, and through marching-band performances. This love has grown into a successful career as a wedding and portrait photographer—one he pursues with his wife, Jodi, in their spacious Grandville studio. Dan and his team deftly capture senior portraits, snap romantic, lively wedding photographs, and preserve images of babies and newborns for use in embarrassing one's children in front of their future spouses. The pair also creates wholesale prints through their sister company, GoProPrints.com.

A bride and two of her bridesmaids strike Charlie’s Angels poses, their guns replaced with bouquets, in one image from Justin Hill’s portfolio of artful wedding shots. In another, a child tries on a floor length wedding dress, looking disappointed as its skirt polls on the parquet floor; in a third, a couple’s hands interlace next to Scrabble tiles that spell out “forever.” A proponent of candid shots, Hill nevertheless stylizes his photos with funky locations and unique composition, having a couple pose atop rustic railroad ties, honing in on their locked hands, or cropping out their faces to appease invisible relatives. To ensure smooth shoots, Hill keeps his cell phone with him at all times to answer any questions the couple may have.
If states had state liquids, Michigan's would be water—it's home to the Great Lakes, 36,000 miles of rivers and streams, and 11,000 inland lakes. Michigan Blue Magazine provides a perfect guide to life by all this water, focusing on lakefront homes, watersports, and environmental issues, such as what to do when your lake goes into hibernation. And that's just one of Gemini Publications' many publications, all of which cover a different facet of modern life in Michigan. Grand Rapids Magazine for instance, focuses on everything from fine dining to style in its namesake city, whereas Grand Rapids Business Journal boasts informative columns, profiles of local business people, a business calendar of events, and more.
