A BEAUTIFUL December Wedding: Kevin & Kathi

Kevin & Kathi are two of the most loved filled people I have ever had the chance to photograph.
Their day was AMAZING and I am pretty sure everyone's love bucket was running over.
I am so excited to watch these two people grow into a beautiful family, because their love is absolutely timeless.

This beautiful ceremony and reception were held at The Laurel Manor

The first dance!

GAH!!!  I just absolutely find her smile infectious and totally beautiful!!

The only song he wanted was Gangnam Style....oh, and he got it!

A Gorgeous Ann Arbor Wedding: Nicole & Andy

Andy and Nicole met at a bar, when they got stuck with the bar tab from their other friends.
The rest is beautiful history!

The ceremony took place at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
It was absolutely love filled and full of comedy, how could anything be better!

Clearly, they just do NOT know how to have fun ;)

Here are the new Mr. & Mrs. sharing a moment together before the celebration continues!

 This is one of my favorite moments!  
A speech being given from the Maid of Honor and a beautiful glimpse of a private, loved filled look.

A Tecumseh, Michigan Wedding: Misty & Matt

When Matt & Misty met, it was like the sunshine breaking through the clouds on a gloomy day!
As cliche as this sounds, it is so very true!
Now, they are married and starting their family, and there are no clouds in site!

 The girls are all getting ready!  Make-up by Brandy

 The officiant was a close personal friend to the Bride & Groom.  He made the ceremony just for them!

A little bit of music and celebration going on as we made our way to the reception.

A first dance kiss!

 A gorgeous moment between Misty & Matt!

The Neighbor's, The Pifer's.

This is the Pifer family.  They have become amazing friends over the last year!  I found them through my parents, they live right next door to my Mom and Step Dad.  They are so much fun and an amazing family who give so much of themselves to others.  We were going to do a photography session last summer, things got busy and we never planned it.  This summer we were going to do it, but Tammi wanted to lose weight first and get the boys haircuts and all spiffy.  

Then on the weekend of July 21st Scott was not feeling well, they rushed to the hospital to find out he was having a heart attack.  He is only 39 years young.  A week after they got back from the hospital and things got back to normal, Tammi contacted me.  

"Ok, so do to recent circumstances, I believe it is time to schedule a pic of my family!  I have to get over being fat and just do it!  When are you available?"

Tammi is gorgeous FYI!

So, here is your reminder!  Life is too short, have your picture taken, I don't care who takes it, just do it!  Use your camera phone, use your own point and shoot, or ask the neighbor to take it.  I don't care how you get it done, just don't waste another day!

The B-Man!

I think his Mom is in trouble!

These are some handsome boys!!!

They are celebrating 7 years of marriage shortly!!!  Congratulations :D

Tammi dubbed this as a "cheesy" photo she wanted done.  They are your memories so nothing is cheesy!

I absolutely adore this!
The whole beautiful family :)

This is Elise.  She is soooooo cute!  I had the privilege of photographing her last summer.  She loves water, airplanes, the chicken dance, and playing peek-a-boo on Mommy's phone.  She is so smart already and she is only 1 1/2.  The world better be ready for this awesome, beautiful girl :)

She found the water and loved it.  Lots of splashing going on :)
A quick second where she took a short break :)

We found a sand pit :)

She was done and this is her mad face.

A fellow photographer was walking by and helped out with her bubble machine.  *Thank you fellow photographer!  My bubble machine is currently on order!*
Hello cutie! :)

Mommy had a bottle of bubbles, I guess they taste pretty good ;)

Then it was snack time.

Cynthia and Gerardo's FOREVER!

I don't really think anyone cared that it was one of the hottest days of the year.  At one point I looked at my phone and it said 101 degrees.  She was amazingly beautiful, and he cleaned up spectacularly.  I was honored to know them before they started dating, and on this day I was thrilled to capture their happily ever after :)

Mom helping get her all ready to go.

Hello Beautiful!

He looks dapper all cleaned up.

She made all these things herself, and they were all BEAUTIFUL!


OH YEAH BABY!  The first kiss!  ;)

The first introduction of the new Mr. & Mrs.

I am sorry Gerardo, but I adore this :)  I love taking pictures of other people taking pictures and this one is awesome!

So him, and totally her!

Love this!

I personally feel, this is the best way to start FOREVER!
