We were extremely excited to hear from Jeni when she asked us to photograph her wedding. You see, we had already met at her sister’s wedding earlier this year, and so now it is like working with family! We believe the highest compliment that we can get is someone referred to us based on work that we have done previously. :) We took advantage of the warm late October weather to capture their engagement session with gorgeous fall colors and we cannot wait until next June when we get to help them celebrate their wedding!
A couple weeks ago, Jason and I met up with Lisa and Mike at Cascades Park in Jackson to get some gorgeous engagement images around sunset. We will be photographing their wedding in June 2013 and looking forward to working with them over the next year. I think that is what I love most about wedding photography, is the relationships that we get to build with our clients. Our hope of course is that we will continue to photograph their life events as the years pass. It is very exciting to see how families grow and change as the years go on.
We were very excited to photograph Dawn and Alec’s wedding this fall in Marshall Michigan. The ceremony took place in downtown Marshall with the reception at the Medalist Golf Course. I don’t think that you could ask for a nicer fall day. The sun was shining and nice and warm. The sky stayed clear all day so we were even able to get some sunset shots at the end of the evening! (These are always my favorite when the timing and venue work out correctly for us.)
Last Saturday, we got to hang out with Renee and Chris (and future maid of honor, Sara) for an engagement session. I don’t know if it is just luck or what but we always seem to get really awesome, fun couples who are really into taking pictures that are a little different and unique to them and have fun while doing it! The fall colors were so beautiful in these images! I can’t wait till their wedding next fall to capture the colors with all the wedding attire on!
So if you think that they are cute, leave them a little comment below and give them some congratulations if you haven’t already yet.
We first met Ivy and Jack at the Gene Davis Bridal show back in January and we have completely enjoyed working with them from start to finish on their wedding plans. They are such an amazing couple with awesome personality. They said their “I Do’s” at Sauk Valley in Brooklyn Michigan a couple weeks ago. The original plan was to have an outdoor wedding but with the rain all day, the decision was made to bring it inside to the upper floor of the building with the a beautiful wall of glass windows. (I told them afterward that I think that the ceremony inside was so pretty that we should be happy that it rained so much!) The sun did peak out though at the end of the day giving us the perfect opportunity to go out and get some images with the wedding party and at sunset over the lake. Congrats you guys!
I do not think that there could have been a more beautiful day for Erin and Justin’s wedding. They had planned their day to include a first look (Bride and Groom seeing each other before the ceremony), and we helped them make it a very special moment for the two of them. They met in a vineyard and after a few moments to themselves we were able to capture some beautiful portraits of the happy couple prior to the lakeside ceremony. And then once, the sun began to set, we were able to capture some more stunning sunset shots to close out their day dancing under the stars. :)
Did you know that your photographer can help you plan your wedding day schedule so that you can time out the day to get some sunset pictures or take advantage of your scenic venue. The images that you fall in love with usually don’t just happen. They were planned and timed in accordance with the time of the day. So if you want a certain look or feel with your wedding images be sure to speak about that with your photographer (or as you interview to pick your photographer). Make sure that they are knowledgeable and put you at ease in this part of the planning process.
Now here’s a look at Erin and Justin’s wedding. Enjoy!
Senior season is in full swing now. If you haven’t booked your session yet, but do it soon before there isn’t any time left to get you in!
What a precious little princess that came to visit with me last week! I love how tiny everything is on a newborn. It is amazing how fast they change and grow! Miss Brynleigh woke up on me toward the end of her session but was completely calm so we just kept shooting. Now mom has some really cute pictures with her eyes open too.

We met Baby Jack’s parents back in January at a bridal show when they asked us to be their wedding photographers for their special in September. Well, I felt that Baby Jack needed a little photoshoot of his own and encouraged Ivy and Jack to bring him in and gets some pictures down for his Six Month milestone. He is just happiest baby ever I think. And those big blue eyes!! Mommy you better watch out because girls are going to be pounding on your door before you know it! :)
Be sure to let Mom and Dad know how cute you think he is in the comments below!
Earlier this month, we had the pleasure of photographing Brittnii and Dan’s special day and we couldn’t be happier for them. They are too cute together. Surrounded by the family and friends full of love for the two of them, they said their vows at the same church that Brittnii’s parents did in Grass Lake. Dan’s sisters surprised the couple with a limo ride from the church to our quick Downtown Jackson photo-shoot (and yes, I do mean quick. Literally all the outside shots were done in about 10 minutes. Don’t crack under pressure!) and continued them on to their reception which took place at the Optimist Ice Arena in Jackson.
Unfortunately, Brittnii’s beautiful cake never made it to the reception with a little mishap on its way there. Now I’m sure all brides upon hearing this news would be extremely upset and we had to remind her that at the end of the day the important thing is that 1. She had awesome wedding pictures (I joked, but am completely serious at the same time. Ha! ) and 2. She married her best friend that day and it was the starting point of their wonderful life together. In the end, the cake is a pretty trivial thing compared to that.
Brittnii and Dan – Never stop loving one another, always talk to each-other, never go to bed angry (seriously, even the Bible says so.), and continue on with your Love Story. Keeping add to the pages of memories as long as you both shall live. Love you guys!
