Jeff & Nichole -> 10.08.10

With everything going on with our move, i never got the chance to blog Jeff & Nichole’s wedding. Now that i am officially settled (read: unpacked) here in Portland, i think it is time to catch up.

Nichole has been my second photographer for… wow, since 2006. It seems very fitting that she and Jeff’s would have my last, full wedding before leaving MI. I love Nichole and Jeff with all of my heart. They are wonderful, perfect together, and truly happy souls. I felt that so strongly while capturing their wedding day. I can’t put to words how honored i was to be there, with them, as a friend and artist.

Thank you, Nichole and Jeff, thank you for being you, and trusting me to capture that.

Matthew & Hilary -> 10.30.10

Matthew and Hilary were married in NY earlier in the month, however they hosted a spectacular party in MI to celebrate with friends and family who were not able to make it into the city. I’m so glad that Hilary touched base with me, even though she thought i would already be in Portland at the time of their event! Their family and friends were fantastic to work with and loads of fun. Hilary and Matthew are a dream together, and i would gladly photograph them again!

Dan & Ann-> 10.02.10

Dan and Ann celebrated their wedding day with a small, mid-day gathering of close friends and family… and me! We had so much fun at the beautiful Henry Ford Estates, even though the rain kept us mostly indoors. This is where i used to go, back in the 90′s, to practice photography and complete some of my college assignments, so it was perfect to revisit with such a wonderful couple for one of my last MI weddings.

There are so many nice things to say about Dan and Ann. They are kind and gracious, very fun, and very in love. Thank you so much for including us!

Special thanks to Rebecca for being such a wonderful 2nd/ assistant on this day!!!

Matt & Sarah-> 09.18.10

I love getting referrals from friends! Matt, Sarah, and i were actually in a wedding together back in 2007 (wow, has it been that long for Carrie and Scott?), and we had a blast!

Can you believe that the rain cleared up for us just in time to get outside for some great photos? Things were a little wet, but Matt & Sarah didn’t let that hold them back from enjoying the colors at Canterbury Village.

(Special thanks to Rebecca for helping me out!)

Todd & Melissa ->08.28.10

I had been looking forward to this wedding all summer. An adorable couple, absolutely awesome line-up of vendors, and a gorgeous location. When Melissa and i first met, we chatted for hours! I remember her telling me that Todd would love me because i rescue animals and have all natural soaps and mouthwashes in the studio bathroom. Haha  Well, we were an awesome team that made awesome photographs with each other. Their love and happiness is easy to see, contagious, and breathtaking.

And, let me tell you, what a fantabulous group with which to party the night away!!!¬† Because, after all, Todd did serenade Melissa with the NKOTB song “Cover Girl”. HILARITY!!
