BONUS: Mutual Weirdness (or outtakes)

While I’d love to gloss on and on in poetic ways about the love filling the air like seagulls fluttering with eager expectation above a parking lot full of shiny cars… bad example… Jami & Nick have a mutual weirdness I can appreciate, as well as photograph. This is a significant part of their story, and these are the images to prove it. Congrats, love birds!

No rain no rainbows

Also no tornado, lighting strikes or hail damage.

Between stormfronts I raced up to Lake Michigan with Lauren and Andrew for a great engagement shoot on the almost deserted Weko Beach in Bridgman, Michigan.

“I was hoping for some lightning in the background… but you two are pretty electric!”(yes… I seriously said that. I was rather proud of how fast I thought of it, but man it was cheesy to hear aloud. Thanks for the courtesy laughs!)

Great laughs, SNICK television lineup trivia, and a relaxing afternoon hearing about their exciting August wedding ahead! More photos ahead…


Engagement Cards Anyone?

I put together a quick sample of our work for a friend of ours planning a summer 2009 wedding and thought I’d better share the summery favorites from last year’s engagement sessions. Nice warm thoughts from the toasty beach shoots should warm up this odd weather December. The shoreline was definitely this year’s favorite location – hard to beat working barefoot!

We had way too much fun on these shoots taking a break from wedding planning and hanging out with our couples to limit this session to just one package so now it’s included in ALL of our Wedding Photography Packages!

Have a great New Year!
