David and Leanne: Engagement

share: FacebooktwitterFacebooktwitter

David and Leanne has such a playful love, with just the right amount of sassy and sweet. We had so much fun at their engagement session last spring, and can’t wait as they open the next chapter of their lives by saying “I do” tomorrow with friends and family celebrating with them.

It’s going to be a beautiful day filled with tears, laughter, and a playful ambiance. See you two love birds tomorrow!

blessings, dayna

Vintage to Vogue: A Cottonwood Barn Styled Shoot

share: FacebooktwitterFacebooktwitter

In the fall, I was given an incredible opportunity to work along side some of the most  inspiring creative professionals in the industry. This styled shoot was  dreamed up, designed, and orchestrated by Kaeli Garcia of Luna Soiree Events. The Venue, Cottonwood barn, is a barn in Dexter, that was recently restored to a absolute breathtaking venue for weddings and events. Hence, the name & vision casted  for the styled shoot: Vintage to Vogue. From the jaw dropping 2 ton chandler hanging over the barn’s rafters, to the pond painted with colored leaves, Cottonwood Barn is the Peanut butter and Jelly to today’s vintage chic bride!

Shooting with Melanie, of Melanie Reyes Photography, our goal was to capture every detail that lied within the vision for the day. Capturing the ambiance of a Fall wedding at Cottonwood barn was a whimsical experience. I am so happy for this local venue, (with the sweetest owners, I must add!) and all the creative professionals who had a hand in bringing this vision to life, to display a glimpse of Cottonwood Barn’s beauty!

Sarah & Eric : A Kerrytown Engagement

share: FacebooktwitterFacebooktwitter

If you have the pleasure to know Sarah & Eric, consider yourself lucky.

1) because they are two of the sweetest people ever and

2) because you don’t have to pay for a gym membership when you are around them, because the laughter that exudes from them, will give you an instant six pack! 😛

Sarah and Eric were acquaintance’s at grad school in Georgia, and it wasn’t until the last few months in school, that they began to notice each other on a “more than friends” basis.

“Until he broke my heart” Sarah would say…

After graduating, Eric left for Florida with his packed bags, ambition, and internship waiting for him as he arrived in the sunshine state.  Little did he know, his bride to be would return to her hometown in the mitten after graduation, to start her career there.

“It took both of us moving to Georgia, and enrolling at the same grad school to meet, and start our journey together out there…” though they grew up just miles away from each other in Michigan! Long story, short, Eric moved home, upon Sarah telling him not to, and they started to plan and dream of their future, together. They will be tying the knot this summer, and we are so delighted to be capturing every moment.

Enjoy!

blessings, dayna

P.S – How adorable are THEY!?  And not to mention their furry babies?! Matt and I almost took Ralphie and Jaz home, as collateral for their images from our session 😉 We had a blast together, and for them not being “winter” people- they totally rocked it in the snow, the pups too!
