GORGEOUS LEGACY WEDDING ALBUM // MADE BY HAND IN THE USA // ARCHIVAL MATERIALS

 

This album is incredible. Plain and simple. As you lift it out of the box and remove it’s soft, plush, protective sleeve, the weight in your hands has an impact. The texture of the leather is beautiful. The album cover has been blind debossed with Megan & Evan’s custom logo. The pages are thick and lay flat. The luster paper has a soft sheen to it. This will become a cherished possession as the years pass and a tangible reminder of their wedding day. I’m really proud of this one and I’m so happy that they love it even more than I do ;)

I’m so excited to be offering this new product for our wedding clients! We will now have two different album options, a book style album and this legacy style album. This album is bound by hand in the USA using archival materials. With proper care, they have a lifetime guarantee. Multiple color and cover options are available. Time flies, so if you haven’t had time to make a wedding album or print your images, don’t hesitate to get in touch!

 

JAMIE & JOE // DOWNTOWN TRAVERSE CITY // WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

 

Exploring the Grand Traverse Commons, riding a trolley down Front St. honking and waving at all the pedestrians, finding the most beautiful flowering plants in the park, stopping at Brady's bar for beers and a game of pool, watching the sunset over the bay from the docks at the open space... that seems like too much to fit into a regular day, but Jamie and Joe arranged their day perfectly to fit those iconic TC experiences and much more into their wedding day.  What a day it was!

MAREN & DREW // BRENGMAN BROTHERS WEDDING

 

On Sunday morning - and even into the afternoon - it was raining.  Well, pouring, if I'm being totally honest.  But then the skies cleared and the sun came out.  I have a strong feeling that even if it never cleared up, it wouldn't have mattered much to Maren and Drew because the important thing was that May 28th was their wedding day.  That being said, there is a photo of Maren standing in the sun with her palm up to the sky and a huge smile on her face and let me tell you... I KNOW THE FEELING.  That gratitude for life, for weather, for family and friends - that just went on and on.  These two have the amazing quality of being goofy and silly together one minute, and then a minute later spending a quiet, contemplative moment together.  What a day, what a day, what a day.

Whitney and Ian = total babes.  These high school sweethearts tied the knot last Saturday and what an amazing day it was.  Brengman Brothers was such a great setting and we may or may not have gotten carried away photographing the absolutely adorable flower girls & ringbearers ;)  This job takes us to some amazing places, to work with some amazing people -  I am definitely feeling grateful this morning.  Cheers!
