Clicking Through Life » Real life wedding photography

It was a blind date and while it very well could have gone all wrong, really it couldn’t have gone anymore right.  Although Chris and his date were having a good time and enjoying each other’s company, there was something missing between them.   So when she said, this may sound weird, but I think you would be absolutely perfect for my friend… another blind date was set, and that turned out to be the last blind date that either Chris or Becky will ever go on…

As fate would have it, Becky’s friend was completely right.  Becky couldn’t be more perfect for Chris.  They have so much in common, it’s almost unreal.  She comes from a big family,  has the same big heart, she’s just as kind, and they have a shared passion for music, craft beer, oh and and bacon!   You would seriously be envious at the amount of concerts they have gone to and their knowledge of beer is incredible.

I’m super excited to share this session because Chris is a long time friend of ours.  He’s one of the nicest, friendliest guys you will ever meet.  And his laugh…  You just can’t help to laugh along with him!  We’ve shared so many memories throughout the years and are looking forward to sharing more with him and Becky together.  We absolutely adore her, we love seeing our friend so completely happy and we love that she loves his laugh as much as we do!

To hear him talk about Becky, you can hear the love in his voice, see it in the way he smiles at the mention of her name.  And as you can tell, the feeling is very mutual.

Today I’m excited to feature one of my last weddings from 2014.  Kristin and Phil were married last fall and I’m not sure I’ve seen a happier bride.  She seriously wore the biggest smile all day long.  Even when their plans for an outdoor ceremony were changed and the ceremony moved indoors because it was too cold, Kristin and Phil still smiled.  They were marrying the love of their lives and nothing was change that.  Not even Mother Nature.

It’s time for some sweet baby cuteness as I wrap up 2014 portrait sessions on the blog with this next edition “Clicking Through the Lives of Others“.  Wyatt was in the studio for his 6 month session, man I can’t believe how time flies.  It doesn’t seem that long ago that I posted his newborn session!  Angela and Tim were a little frazzled when they got here and we weren’t sure if Wyatt was going to let me take his pictures that day, he cried in the car the entire drive here.  Once we got settled in the studio, he calmed right down and even turned on the charm for me!

Heather and Trevor welcomed twins Mack and Myles into their family last fall and I got to meet them less than 2 weeks later!

Heather brought this awesome sign and her friend made the hats and boots and I just love the way it came together in this set.

I last worked with Lindsay & Mike at their wedding in 2011 and in December they welcomed baby Lucas into their family and here’s a few favorites from their maternity session in the studio.

And on New Year’s Day, they brought little Lucas to meet me and I can’t think of a better way to kick off the new year!

I love to travel and am blessed that my job enables me to.  I’ve had the honor of photographing people at some amazing locations like Ericka & Jacob’s wedding on Ft. Myer’s Beach, Kelly & Tyler‘s wedding in Traverse City, Jen & Jake‘s at Castle Farms and next year I get to photograph Maria & Dave’s wedding in Chicago!  I’ve photographed engagement sessions all over the state of Michigan including Mt. Pleasant, East Lansing and Quincy and even one in New York City, and sometimes when I’m visiting my family in Florida I’ll work a little too.  :-)

I’ve been taking Ally’s pictures since she was born and I’ve photographed this beautiful little girl in Michigan, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Central Park, I think she’s traveled as much as me and she’s only 4 years old!   But this time, just Nicole and I stayed in New York City for a girls night and checked #83 off of my list!  We saw the Broadway musical If/Then at the Richard Rodgers Theatre.  It was amazing and I’m so happy to check that one off!  For Ally’s pictures we found a quaint little Connecticut park in Newtown that had some amazing light, and we played.

For the very first time in a very long time I’m completely caught up with editing.  I know it won’t last long in fact it’s just going to be a couple of days but since I am caught up, I thought it to be about time I share some of my favorites from portrait sessions last fall!

Ella turned three this year and we had her session at the Nature Center at Goodells Park.  Michigan Wedding Photographer_0631.jpg

The colors were in full force and it was a beautiful day!

Michigan Wedding Photographer_0635.jpg

I’ve been photographing Ella and her family for 3 years now and it’s such a joy them and watching Ella grow.

Amanda always puts so much thought into her sessions and I love all of the props she brings along!  How fun to have a tea party with daddy in the middle of the woods!

And could this be any cuter?  What a fun way to announce their growing family!

I absolutely adored this session with Valerie, Ben, Finn and Hannah!  They came out to the studio on a gorgeous fall day and we had so much fun wandering around capturing these moments together.

I got to photograph some more “repeat offenders” during Levi’s 7 month session at his house last fall.

Michigan Wedding Photographer_0731

He was showing us more of his serious side that day and I love these next two with his brother Garrett.

Michigan Wedding Photographer_0732 Michigan Wedding Photographer_0733

Although he was being more serious that day, after a little bit that smiley happy baby showed up!

It’s been 3 years since I’ve photographed their wedding, and I was so excited to get Christin, Brian and now Preston in front of my camera again!

Michigan-Wedding-Photographer_0670.jpg

The came out to the studio for their session and although it was a little colder that day, the light was beautiful and we had so much fun playing in the leaves and corn field.

Michigan-Wedding-Photographer_0664.jpg

I was so happy they brought my buddy Dexter along too!

Michigan-Wedding-Photographer_0669.jpg

I just l-o-v-e this one…

We really did have a beautiful fall this year and it was a perfect day when I met up with the Sebastian at Yate’s Cider Mill for their session.

Michigan-Wedding-Photographer_0663.jpg

I think I’ve mentioned once or twice how much I love it when you include your pets in your session.  They are so much a part of our families and they deserve to be in your portraits too!

Michigan-Wedding-Photographer_0661.jpg Michigan-Wedding-Photographer_0660.jpg Michigan-Wedding-Photographer_0659.jpg

These are some of my all. time. favorites.

Michigan-Wedding-Photographer_0658.jpg Michigan-Wedding-Photographer_0657.jpg Michigan-Wedding-Photographer_0638.jpgThere’s just something I love about photographing high school seniors, especially beautiful souls like Kayla.

Michigan-Wedding-Photographer_0643.jpg

And especially when they include cows in their sessions.
Michigan-Wedding-Photographer_0642.jpg

And barns too!

Michigan-Wedding-Photographer_0641.jpg

Michigan-Wedding-Photographer_0645.jpgI love how powerful she looks in this series…

Michigan-Wedding-Photographer_0644.jpg

I had such an awesome time with Kayla and we were literally shooting until we ran out of light that night!  Stay tuned for more portrait goodness – there’s lots of CTL babies coming to the blog soon!
