Let me first start out by saying I love this couple! Sara was always, the “cool, beautiful, big sister” of one of my closet girlfriends growing up, so when she asked me to do her and Eric’s wedding & engagement photos I was honored 🙂 (and make-up, and hair!) They have one of the coolest venue’s I have been to for a wedding. It was a far drive, but totally worth it! Poor Sara, there was this awesome red fence we were going to take some photos by, I had her sit up against it, and after about 5 seconds, she jumped back. Well, the electric current from the other fence was going through the red fence, shocking her! (literally) Eric, (mr.tough guy…;)) didn’t even jump or feel a thing! ha ha sorry Sara… but she was a trooper, and kept going, and still listened to me after I shocked her.
We had a ton of fun, and Eric even brought his guitar along to serenade us with a song. (perks of the job!) After spending an evening with them, seeing their love for each other, and dodging sprinklers and electric fences, I’d say they could pretty much make it through anything.
Sara & Eric, I pray that the Lord blesses you beyond measure during this time of your engagement and throughout your marriage. You two truly are a beautiful couple.
WHAT A ROCK : )

This weekend we ventured out to Livonia to capture this special day for Tim & Angela! I love a couple that just likes to have fun in front of the camera, and will just trust me and my creative eye, even if I ask them to do something that may sound crazy and that was them. We were supposed to go downtown Plymouth for their photos, but there was a festival going on that we didn’t know about. So we took a detour! We went to this old rustic village instead, and can I just say, it was a wedding photographers dream! As always, I wish I could have spent an entire day photographing there, there were so many cool photo opportunities, but I am beyond pleased with the photos we captured. When we went to the village, Matt stayed back at the reception hall to set up the gear, and I felt like a lost puppy dog, I seriously could not do one wedding without him, he keeps me sane through the chaos 🙂 So a big THANK YOU goes out to him!! Enjoy the sneak peak, and Congrats to Tim & Angela, the Newlyweds!
LOVE LOVE LOVE the bubbles 🙂
I was totally driving when I snapped this shot, shh don’t tell 😉

I had a lot of fun at Kristen’s shower over the weekend- a PICNIC theme, how cute! Plus, I got some cute ideas for our shower in the Fall 😉 The happy couple is getting married in August, so just a couple more months! It’s such a small world, she found me from a friends blog, and saw her bridal shower pics I took, and loved the idea so she called me. I always love photographing private parties, something about them are just so much fun, everyone’s always so happy 🙂 Enjoy

Lukas, at his young age, has taught me a very valuable lesson, that doctor’s don’t know everything, and thank God for that! Shannon and Shawn are really good friends of ours, so seeing them through the whole pregnancy was such an awesome journey! The faith they had was incredible, from the time the doctor’s told Shannon about the severe kidney stones that she had early in the pregnancy, to later on when spots were visible on Lukas’s brain that could be something serious, and THEN to the doctor’s saying that he may have an irregular heart. Shannon & Shawn decided not to have any additional tests taken, and to wait on the LORD for the healing that HE promises. HE formed Lukas to be perfect in the womb, and that is the promise that we all were clinging to. I remember specifically one Sunday morning in Church when the worship team started singing the song “Healer” which simply states that the Lord is capable to heal ANY disease, and He walks with us, hand in hand through it all. That Sunday morning, I went up to Shannon where her mom and family were standing around her with their hands on her belly, praying for a complete healing in baby Lukas. I truly believe he was healed right then.
Seeing Lukas only 6 hours after birth, he looked perfect, one of the most gorgeous babies I have seen, and I have seen a lot of babies in this career 🙂 They were going to run tests on Lukas in 48 hours, but we already trusted that the Lord had healed his brain and heart. Looking at him in Shannon’s arms, I knew that the Lord was working miracles in that hospital room. To make a long story short, when the test results came back, everything in Lukas was perfectly normal and perfectly healthy- just as the Lord created Him. Doctors know a lot, but in this case, not everything, they didn’t know the healing power of Our Creator!
These are pictures we took over the weekend at just 4 weeks old. Getting to know this little man has been a blast, and seeing how God’s hand has been upon Him since day one has been a blessing to many. Look at this baby- and try to tell me he’s not a miracle! 🙂
PRAISING JESUS for a complete healing :):)
