Kayte & Colin :: Wedding

Oh yes! A outside wedding in October in Michigan, you gotta be crazy! With Michigan weather you never know what the weather will be like on any given day especially outside, so when I got the call about photographing a wedding in October outside I thought it would we fun. It was fantastic! On the day of the wedding the weather was sunny and 58 degree, you couldn't have asked for a better October Day. Katie & Colin were engaged, photographed and married in just 6 weeks. To put together a wedding of this magnitude in that short of time is nothing short of incredible. Katie and fab wedding coordinator, Nicole Dungey from Weddings by Nicole, put together a fun and elegant wedding in record time. I shot the engagement session, bridal portrait session, rehearsal and the wedding in less than 4 days!!

To make sure that I had all my bases covered I brought along two assistants for this wedding. The wedding was held in Veteran's Memorial Park in Holt, Michigan. It is a beautiful location. The wedding was staged in front of the fountain. By having three photographers we able to cover the wedding from different and interesting angles.

The reception was held at the Kellogg Center in East Lansing, Michigan on the campus of MSU. This is a very nice facility. The Cake, decorations and food were wonderful and everyone had a great time.

Kudos to my two assistants on this shoot, Ben Friedkin and Margarett Hehr good stuff.

Because the couple was pressed for time this was a quick session. Even though it was quick we have a great time. Katie and Colin were a great couple to work with.

I will be posting photos from their wedding in the next blog installment, but for know here are a few photos from the fantastic engagement session. Enjoy!

Lacey & Eric :: Wedding

I think I have known Eric for most of his life. He and my son were on the same team when they were about 10 or 11 years old, my how time flies. Eric and Lacey make a fine couple, they are just fun to be around! Their wedding, which was held at Mount Hope Church , Lansing, was a major bringing together of two really large families. When we did the "family" photos of Lacey's side we had to bring them up in two sets because together there was not enough room on the stage... that's big. The wedding was fantastic, which made getting photos easy!

Techentin Family Portraits

When you do location photography you never really know what you are going to get! I love going to new places and seeing new things. Sometime my travels take me to the family backyard. I did a photo session for the Techentin family. The family had gathered for their Mom and Dad's 50th wedding anniversary. It was a great chance to get shots of the individual families, here are a few photos from that session.

Kelsey & Tyler :: Wedding :: San Diego, CA

I had the privilege to fly out to Del Mar, CA to photograph a wedding. The wedding was held outside at Seagrove Park, over looking the Pacific Ocean. Fantastic view. Tyler the groom comes from Scottish roots so it seemed fitting that all the groomsmen wore kilts. I must say, the guys looked great. I had to do the wedding with out the aid of one of my regular assistants, so I enlisted the help of groomsman's' sister Jody. Thanks Jody! She got to be my lighting person and even got a chance to take few photos during the ceremony. A real long day and a lot of hard work, but it paid off and we got some fantastic photographs.
