Jamie and Sean have been married for TWO YEARS! I truly can’t even believe its been two years since these wonderful people came to me around six weeks before their wedding and said will you take our photos?! And can we squeeze and engagement session in there too? Oh don’t worry – they made everything happen and it was a beautiful day. These two lovebirds just love life, love people, and really really love each other. The best part about this particular day was that Sean tried SO hard to make this photo session a surprise for Jamie. Alas, the universe worked against him and he had to tell her in the end. It was still very sweet and so fun to see these two again. DSC_4356DSC_4359DSC_4381DSC_4389DSC_4427DSC_4433DSC_4478DSC_4493DSC_4499DSC_4536DSC_4624DSC_4635

Fun fact: That particular bench may or may not be the spot where Jamie and Sean shared their first kiss. Let’s all say it together… awwwwwwww…DSC_4643DSC_4660DSC_4714DSC_4747DSC_4788DSC_4863DSC_4867

Oh. My. Goodness. Have you ever been to the Blue Dress Barn? It is just the dreamiest place. That on top of the super fun group of friends I got to hang out with on Dan and Ana’s wedding day made this a pretty stinking fantastic wedding. The threat of rain couldn’t keep us down and it ended up just being a beautiful day!

Dan and Ana love to laugh. I think it is the thing they spend the most time doing together, and I love that! I mean, who else would just up and jump in the fountain at the GRAM??? We had so much fun adventuring around Downtown GR together on a gorgeous spring day, and it was a great warm up for their wedding a couple of weeks later. Thanks for being so fun and fabulous you guys!

I cannot wait to shoot Jeremy and Lauren’s wedding next June! And I had so much fun romping around Michigan State’s campus on a GORGEOUS fall day a couple weekends ago. To be clear, Jeremy wanted me and everyone to know this wasn’t a “MSU” shoot because he loves U of M in a big way. But rather, MSU was just a really pretty place to take some photos.

Watching these two have so much fun with each other and be so in love was fantastic to be around and that is why their June wedding is going to be a blast.!

Lynn and Cole | An Engagement Session

…. plus Trigger! I had a blast spending a chilly morning at Central Michigan University with an old friend of mine, Lynn and my new friend Cole. Lynn and Cole met at CMU, so that was just the perfect location to get some shots of them before their March wedding in Clare, MI. Plus, we had the added bonus of playing with their ADORABLE puppy, Trigger. He may or may not have stolen the show a few times, but that can’t really be helped when you are that cute.

Johannah, Toby, Miera, and Berkey | A Family and Engagement Shoot

If Johanna and Toby are one hundred percent adorable, Miera and Berkey are about three hundred percent adorable. Seriously, this family was so much fun to work with. Toby and Johannah have a love for Detroit that they are hoping to pass on to their kids and that is awesome. We explored the DIA, Campus Martius (where Toby proposed), and Belle Isle. Check out some of our adventure!

I cannot wait to share your special day with you guys in August!

Jon and Kait | Table Numbers

I am shooting Jon and Kait’s wedding this weekend and I absolutely cannot wait! Love you guys and congratulations! HAPPY WEDDING DAY!

Josh and Janna | May 2011

Josh and Janna are great. Truly. This is a couple that loves each other, has fun with each other, and share a strong relationship with God. They were willing to act a little weird, adventure through forests, and, you know, make out in front of me. (Don’t worry. Stephen and I got them back). We had a lot of fun exploring downtown Midland and Dow Gardens. We visited Josh’s mom’s memorial bench in Dow Gardens. We spent the day celebrating love, marriage, God, and friendship! I wish I would have been able to shoot their wedding this summer but work does not allow it. I am sure it will be a wonderful day though!

Thanks for a beautiful day you guys!

Jon and Kait | January 2011

Jon and Kait were my first official Engagement Shoot couple! They are also my first solo wedding and I am so thankful for them in trusting me as their photographer. I cannot wait for their July wedding and for their (possibly secret) other “engagement” session. One thing I knew going into this shoot was that Kait LOVES having her picture taken and let me tell you, she SHOULD (ps. Kait was the first one to lay right down in the snow for one of these shots!). Both of them are just gorgeous people inside and out and I cannot wait to be part of their most magical day!
