Just two more days  until these two darlings tie the knot in one of my favorite cities Chicago, aka Chi-town, aka awesome sauce! Since their summer wedding is in the city we decided for a bit of  fun in the spring nature of Michigan for their engagement portraits.  Nicki I’ve known since she was a wee babe, her aunt is my bestie and I’ve been blessed  to work with her amazing family for years (I just shot her sister Tiffany’s wedding in May).  Nathan, Nate the Great as he is known to his close friends, I’ve gotten to know recently but as this small world goes we’ve met when I shot his cousins’  (Dorothy and Josh)  wedding. This is kind of a legacy wedding for me since both families are intertwined with my work since it began.   The best thing about these two is they make me laugh, hard and are always up for something crazy. I can’t wait to see what shenanigans we’ll get up to for the wedding, we have a whole city chock-full of mischief to claim. Nicki tries to keep us in check but I like where Nathan lets his ideas go! See you soon in the city!

Tiffany and Patrick joined me for some snow fun! We were waiting for the blizzards to hit us and boy did they not disappoint this year. Treading through trails of fields and forests in  snowbanks of 5ft at points, this was definitely a first for all of us! But so worth it, look at the goodies we got! We even finished off the fun with a traditional snowball fight. See the rest of the story unfold in May!

This past week I’ve been doing a ton of undercover work and getting invited to witness amazing moments of LOVE. Wednesday past I was hitching rides on boats to wonderful islands on Pure Michigan Lakes and hiding in grass taller then me to capture the surprise proposal Jason had planned for Andreea. With the wonderful help of Jason’s sister Jessie, his brother Sam (our soaked to the bone boat hero), and Andreea’s sister Jenny it turned out awesome and a definite surprise!

There’s a ton of behind the scenes of the planning and building phase that I’ll post of Facebook for fun! Make sure to watch for that coming up.

The best feeling in the world is to have your friends trust their memories into your hands! Gina + Dan (aka Raul) are getting married in August and are taking me with them to Kentucky to capture the awesome event! We spent some Michigan quality time this Saturday to do their engagement shots out in Dan’s old hangout Birmingham! I used to meet up with Dan and friends at 3am Java Hut time to ponder life and have our cup of coffee to keep us up working on papers, editing images and just plain goofin’ off. Him moving to Kentucky for grad school left us a man short for UNO game nights but got him on the road to meet the wonderful Gina! And now here’s a peek into the love! 🙂

Go grab some hot coco, take a seat and cozy up because love is in session. Elizabeth and Emanuel came over the border to hang out and get some fun started in the snow. Here’s how awesome these two are, they braved the freezing cold with smiles and laughter and made it look like it was 70 degrees outside. How can you not love these people!  They have a beautiful love story and I can’t wait for their wedding in May, which  is going to be phenomenal! Enjoy the peek!
