“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail”

These two were so classy, elegant, and timeless. If I had my way, I would have dressed them up old Hollywood style and finished up their shoot vintage style. They could rock out the modern…and the vintage…all at the same time. They just KNEW how to work the camera. Bernardo joked all night and teased that he was a male model…I laughed and mocked him. But, now I wonder…perhaps they are secret models on the side…who just happen to be super in love…
Welcome to Lars and Linsey’s special day. I first met them here on the streets of Ann Arbor for their engagement shoot. I quickly learned that these two are huge fans of football and Michigan State. I admit…I was half expecting that the mascot Sparty and a football would somehow make their way into the big day. They didn’t…HOWEVER…the football game did make it’s way onto every television available to the bridal party. Turns out they are ALL obsessed! I loved it…it was on while getting ready…on before the ceremony…and on after the ceremony. If I remember correctly, it seems the girls were even cheering or booing even more than the guys…
Lars and Linsey’s first look. For those of you who don’t know what this is, it is where the bride makes her grand entrance and the groom sees her for the first time BEFORE the ceremony. This allows for some beautiful, quiet moments between the bride and groom after he sees her, more time and less stress for us to get pictures of the bride and groom as well as the bridal party, and allows the reception to take place close after the ceremony.
No, you sillies, I am not holding a workshop. BUT. I am announcing a very special, wonderful, brilliant, over the top awesome workshop by Shannon Sewell. If you know of her, you are already in love with her work. If you haven’t, you will be within five minutes of looking at her lovely images. I was instantly drawn to her images when I was first introduced. She has a ridiculous talent of stylizing her shoots and then telling a beautiful story through her images. Her view from the camera is unique and you will find that you just. can’t. stop. looking. You can find Shannon’s work on her website and her blog.
