Go Michigan! I mean…go Ross and Jess! Don’t worry, they would have wanted me to say that :) F’real though, congratulations to one of the coolest and fun couples I know…
One of my favorites of Jess from the day, and taken by my second shooter, Laura Finley…
Moving on to Ross at the Masonic Temple in Detroit…
This shoot was photographed a while ago with a lot of amazing people involved. We held onto it for a while as we knew we wanted this one for print. There is just SOMETHING about seeing your work in a pretty magazine. Super excited for this feature in Chic Magazine.

Luukiko…that would be Luu and Mikiko…is easily one of the coolest and most photogenic couples I have ever photographed. These two modeled for me during my shooting demonstration at the Chic Retreat in Seattle, and quite frankly, ROCKED it.
…then come marriage…and then comes baby in the baby carriage! One year after photographing their beautiful wedding day, I was so excited to see them again and photograph their sweet little one. Congrats David and Erica!
For a few days after our workshops, I feel like I have been hit with a small truck. But, now that the sleep deprivation, nerves, and stress are gone, I am left only with the amazing memories of two days with SUCH a cool group of people. I am also left with the wonderful truth that we are SO blessed and grateful to share with and teach others what we love doing most. So much thanks to the crazy awesome attendees and all of the people working behind the scenes!
