I had been "talking" with Caren over email for a few months discussing her wedding day and planning their engagement session. She seemed like such a sweetheart and I couldn't wait to meet her! When she got out of her car at the engagement session I said. "Wait! I know you!"
Happy Fourth Everyone! If you are like me, you are recovering from a fun, sugar filled, and sleep deprived day yesterday!
It may have been crazy of me, but I invited my school age nieces and nephews (8 of them) to camp at the lake with me Tuesday night! I borrowed my brothers big van, a few tents and packed plenty of snacks and sugar for a fun evening and day on the lake!
I'm not much of a writer and honestly don't generally enjoy it. I have many blog posts in line that I should be posting but I am finding it hard to jump back into my normal routine without acknowledging Sunday's tragedy.
I have been looking forward to this wedding for what feels like forever!! Lyndsay and Jim booked me for their Marquette wedding early last year and I was able to meet them at Kal & Nicole's wedding in October. I LOVED spending my Saturday with these two and their fun bridal party and having a chance to catch up with a past Natalie Carolyn bride!
I have been looking forward to meeting and getting these two behind my camera since our first email! Maija is the sweetest thing and I knew I would enjoy getting to know her other half if he was anything like her!
I've decided to start a new series on the blog today called Friday Favorites! Not all things shared in this Friday series will necessarily be photography related but instead big or small things that made me smile and helped to make my week great!
I have LOVED getting to know both of them and was SO happy when I heard they were expecting a little boy! Alyssa contacted me about being there to witness and photograph some of their first moments as a family of 3 and I happily agreed!
The fresh green grass and the warm breeze perfectly complimented the light sage green bridesmaid dresses and the beautiful pink bouquets! Aaron and Helen, thank you so much for letting me photograph your beautiful day and the start of your love story!
I moved into my own tiny home in December and have really enjoyed entertaining. Hosting get togethers with friends, spending quality time with family and planning parties and styled sessions are what I live for during the winter.
