LE | Photography

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

Brie | Headshots

This is Brie. She is the macaroni to my cheese. She is beautiful. She is hilarious. She is an incredible actress. Basically, she is one of the coolest people I know. We did a quick mini-shoot this summer and got her fixed up for some upcoming auditions. This is my friend, the super star.

I might be a little biased, but get ready to take a gander at three of the cutest children in the world.

These are a couple of my most best nieces and nephew. Miles, Ramona and Penelope are quirky, beautiful, happy little weirdo’s that I love a whole stinking bunch so I was super pumped when Matt and Megs called and said it was time for some new kiddo pics. They really weren’t planning on being in any photos themselves, but I maybe forcefully encouraged them to jump in a couple and I am so glad they did (just wait til you get to the end).

Anywho. Here is my family.

U of M vs MSU. Where do you stand? Well, this couple defies logic and loves each other despite opposing views on this most important topic. Lauren and Jeremy have fun and they love each other, which pretty much means everyone they surround themselves with also have fun and love them. That makes for an exceptionally fun wedding. There were some particularly memorable moments from this day, from groomsmen who didn’t want to pose but would rather play football to a sister/MOH who wrote an entire song for her MOH toast, and this newly married couple sharing their anniversary with Lauren’s amazing parents and making sure those two got their own “first dance” for their 28th wedding anniversary. There was laughter and tears, epic dance moves, SpringHill lovin, and a yellow Mustang.

It was a really good day. Thanks Lauren and Jeremy for letting Liz and I come along for the fun!

As a follow-up to yesterday’s post, here is Lexy and Matt’s INCREDIBLE winter wonderland Detroit wedding. I haven’t had the privilege of shooting a wedding party on Belle Isle before this day back in January and what a pleasure that is. This group was so much fun and total troupers throughout the freezing cold day. And Matt and Lexy were one of those couples that made me miss my husband the whole day. These two were filled with an unbelievable amount of love and admiration for each other and with good reason. Lexy and Matt were not going to be able to live in the same town for the first six months of their marriage because of finishing up schools in separate states. I think that is what made them so wonderfully obsessed with each other throughout the day. They savored every second and it was magical to see. Here’s to being a part of that….

So, I jumped on the computer today to blog a wonderful wedding I shot in May and realized I NEVER blogged Matt and Lexy! Now, this is even crazier because I did two events for them two days in a row, which means I actually forgot TWO blog posts. From January.  ::currently shaking my head::

Anyway, let me tell you about Matt and Lexy. They are the cutest insanely smart people I know. Does that make sense? At their rehearsal dinner, friends and family declared them both to be extremely loyal, fun, kind, precious, crazy smart, determined, adorable people. These are people I really like to work with. Now, it is not normal for me to attend a rehearsal dinner with my clients, but Matt and Lexy chose to replace their engagement session I offer with having me attend the rehearsal. And I was so glad I was there! It was a fun theme of western-southern-childhood-memories-gorgeousness. Check it out!

Oh, PS. We had Slows Bar BQ. Let the jealousy commence….  DSC_0079-79 DSC_0087-77 DSC_0113-69

Jon and Jodie | A Wedding

That moment when they are announced as husband and wife and moments later the sky lets go and rain falls. That is my favorite. When brides say, “yeah sure, we can go off-roading, you only wear this thing once.” That is also my favorite. Shooting a wedding for dear friends. Also my favorite. This was a good day.

The Weyburne’s | A Family Shoot

I love the Weyburne Family! They have been important people in Stephen and my life for a while now and it was so good to see them again. The kids wanted to give their dad some family photos for his birthday (a great idea) and I was thrilled to get to be a part of their day. Love you guys! Enjoy!

Johannah and Toby | A Greenfield Village Wedding

Johannah and Toby are one amazing couple. They have fun at all times and they share that fun with their kids. Even on their wedding day, they were just calm, cool, relaxed, and having a GOOD time. They both spent the day trying to take in every moment, and they truly enjoyed every minute. Love you guys and welcome back from your honeymoon!
