Many of you who knew me way back when know that I started my career as a newspaper photographer— Which I loved, but you see as a strict photojournalist you can’t get involved, you don’t move anything, you don’t touch anything… you never interfere with what is going on.  I totally get it.  I mean you want to be impartial, but here’s the thing.  I love people and I WANT to get involved.  I found that in photographing weddings I was no longer watching from the sidelines… I was actually  an integral part of the day!  I love getting to know our couples… be part of their days, laugh, cry & rejoice alongside them all while documenting it with my trusty camera.  Maybe it’s because Tom and I worked together at my second newspaper but apparently this whole wedding day made me nostalgic and I can tell you I am so glad I got to be involved in this wedding!  It was filled with so many fantastic moments as Tom & Megan not only were joined together as husband and wife but were joined together as a new family with Emma and Regan as well.  It was a fantastically intimate ceremony with such beautiful poignant and laughter filled advice from other married couples.  I cried,  I rejoiced, I laughed and I’ll be honest partied a alongside Tom and Megan thoughout the day.  So honored to be part of your wedding day. Congratulations to you and your new family.  May your new life together be filled with so many more wonderful moments as you write a new chapter together.

Loved being part of this FABULOUS celebration. The whole day was full of loads of energy and lots of love.  I loved the classic black & white that Lyndsay chose to showcase a color pallet as vibrant as her.  The Empyrean made for a gorgeous backdrop as Chris & Lyndsay said I do in an intimate ceremony.  The wedding was a perfect celebration of life and love filled with gorgeous details and  a crew ready to celebrate.  Thanks so much for choosing Happinest do be part of your wedding day….I was so happy to have Lesa Van Meter of Shadowlands by my side throughout the day backing me up and helping capture what hopefully will be some of your favorite memories together.  Congrats, congrats, congrats Lynsday & Chris– may your marriage be filled with adventure, stability, amazing friends, good food, fun & loads of love.

Janel, Rick and their whole bridal party were so much fun to work with. We had a gorgeous day for the wedding at Pokagon State Park Janel was one of the most laid back brides I’ve ever seen and Rick was just ready to party.  I loved watching these two together as they not only said their vows but enjoyed the celebration all day long.  Wishing you two a long happy marriage together filled with loads of love!

Oh this sweet boy!  I’ve loved working with this family and their sweet baby boy— well I suppose after you’re walking, exploring and running on your own you are not a baby anymore!  I’ve loved watching him grow over the last year… so excited for you as you explore this big wide world Chandler you are going to love it.
