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.

Kayte & Colin :: Engagement Session

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. Colin proposed to Katie and the next day I get a call that they need a photographer and the wedding is in six weeks! Kudos to Katie for putting it all together so quickly. 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!
