JACQUELYN & DOUGLAS // TRAVERSE CITY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER // OLD MISSION PENINSULA & THE CATHEDRAL BARN

 

Jacquelyn & Doug.  Oh where to start.  We truly adore these two.  From my first meeting with Jacquelyn and her parents, to photographing their engagement session in California, to the planning phone calls, and then of course their wedding - the entire process has been fun because these two are just wonderful.  We've had so many laughs with them.  It's not everyday that one of the bride's main requests is as follows: "Jacquelyn and her friends with their pizza friendship necklace.  This is a photo we take at each person's wedding and it's imperative to capture".  And then we joked about her use of the word imperative multiple times during the week leading up to the wedding.  Pizza-themed necklace aside, Jacquelyn and Doug placed a high priority on food and wine in their wedding plans.  It is a huge part of how their relationship has developed and grown, including where they have lived and their plans for the future.  Capturing that aspect of their wedding day was a real treat - literally.  The Boathouse did a fabulous job.  This day was full.  This day was full of love.  Full of food.  Full of wine.  Full of family.  Full of friends.  Full of the good stuff.

THESE TWO.  Just so much energy, excitement, joy.  As with most video blog posts, I'll let the film tell the story.  It will do a way better job than I could put into words.  Cheers to Anna & Jeremy!

 

KERRY & NICK // WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY PREVIEW // ST. JOSEPH, MI

WOW!  Our team truly felt welcomed this weekend.  From the moment we arrived in St. Joe's on Friday until we left Sunday morning, we were able to spend time with a fantastic group at an amazing home right on Lake Michigan.  After all of the planning and effort, one single day seems to fly by so fast.  I know Kerry and Nick would have loved to live in this day for a while longer, but they both wrote vows that incorporated truly being present in the moment.  In this way, I know they were able to savor every last minute of September 12th, 2015.

KERRY & NICK // ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY // ST. JOSEPH, MI.

The Spring vibes were awesome for Kerry and Nick's engagement session in St. Joe's.  We explored some hidden trails and of course spent time on the beach where these two will be getting married in September!
