Brian and Stacey: An Impromptu Session

share: FacebooktwitterFacebooktwitter

A few weekends back, Matt and I traveled to a remote city up north to capture “I do’s” at a beautiful Ranch Wedding. (Snow Moon Ranch) By our side  that weekend, were two of our absolute favorite people in the world, no really…

Brain and Stacey are a husband and wife video team out of Saginaw, MI, +  let me tell you they are quite the duo! Working with them is kind of like scooping out your favorite ice cream, while wearing your favorite fuzzy socks- so comfortable and always a good laugh!

We all decided it would be fun (and crazy- what were we thinking) to photograph each other the day after the wedding. I’m not going to lie, I have been wanting to get them in front of our camera since we met last summer at Brett and Emily’s wedding!

I can’t say enough good things about these two- I literally feel like I could go on for days. To sum it up, they are:

O0oober talented + hilarious + extremely genuine… SO, to all my  future brides, I HIGHLY recommend checking out them to capture video for your day, everyone I have refereed to them has had nothing but praise’s to sing about them!

{this message was not paid for by Brian and Stacey ;)}

We found this old row boat on a beach + I loved playing with my new tilt shift lens, they were the perfect couple to experiment on!

Brian & Stacey, thanks for being my Guinea pigs, for the laughs, and the bug bites… I’ll expect some itch-relief cream in the mail next week 😉

Jamie & Scott: Engaged

share: FacebooktwitterFacebooktwitter

When Jamie asked me if  Scott could wear his Army uniform for their engagement session, I couldn’t have been happier. I always try to encourage my couples to bring “them” to the session, something that they love, is a part of them, or their Journey together. It always ends up unfolding into a beautiful story that is a great accent to all the emotions + love leading up to the big day.

Can’t wait for their summer wedding next June! 🙂

Mark & Tracey: A Waldenwoods Wedding

share: FacebooktwitterFacebooktwitter

Every moment from Mark and Tracey’s Waldenwoods wedding a few weeks back was so incredibly intimate.

It’s so beautiful to me, the rawness, the love, the tears… the emotion that’s evoked when two people, make a commitment to each-other, and decide on forever.

Every detail that went into this day, from getting ready at grandma’s house, her mom getting her into her gown, Grandma’s tears seeing her little girl as a bride for the first time…

To the way Mark embraced even the sight of Tracey the entire day, and the last song played on the dance floor, was just real….raw…. it was them.

Their story

Their journey

Their new family,

and the start of their new chapter together.

Congratulations Mark & Tracey! You two deserve the absolute best life has to offer!

Blessings, dayna

David & Leanne: an Eagle Crest Marriott Wedding

share: FacebooktwitterFacebooktwitter

David and Leanne were high school sweethearts, and have had much time in planning and preparation in leading up to their big day. It was the sweetest thing, when David saw Leanne for the first time, as a bride, he literally lost his breath, and had her pause where she was,  so he could truly take in every moment. Such a special day to be a part of, and I was happy to have along with me my good friend, Daighna Rayner of Daighna Photography.

To view more of David and Leanne, please click here for their sweet summer engagement session!

David and Leanne, wishing you a lifetime of happiness and love! Welcome home from your honeymoon! 😉

blessings, dayna
