I had the pleasure of meeting and learning from the fabulous Shannon Sewell last week at her workshop. I met and chatted with so many awesome local photographers as well and had a blast photographing these awesome little models…all dressed up in my favorite boys clothing line, Knuckleheads. Part 2 coming tomorrow…
I have a special little place in my heart for this family. Long before I met Stacy and Michael, I photographed Stacy’s sister, brother-in-law, and sweet baby. These are people who are impossible not to fall in love with. Two years later, Stacy and Michael contacted me about their wedding, and after their wedding, I feel the same way about them. So beautiful, so classy, and so much fun. I loved everything about their day.
Jeff and Megan’s wedding in Bay Harbor was a fairy tale…mixed with a huge amount of crazy fun. Before we get to the craziness, let’s enjoy Jeff and Megan…who clearly are amazing in front of the camera and have a very special connection that was so wonderful to capture.
Behind my laughter (combined with tears), I witnessed one of the sweetest and funniest events I have ever seen at a reception. Dad and daughter dance started out super sweet, and then suddenly took a hilarious turn when the music changed, the sunglasses came out, and they jammed out to an awesome choreographed dance.
I would SO not be doing Jeff and Megan or their wedding party justice if I didn’t share some of the outtakes from their day. Honestly, I don’t know if we have ever laughed so hard at a bridal party…pretty sure we are still recovering. Thanks everyone for bringing your crazy!!!
The Incredibles are SO 2004. Bring on the Imslands.
Ok, after seeing the posing fireman in Katie’s blog post last week and now this, you must think I am the creator of putting-my-clients-in-the-craziest-situations-I-can-muster. Truth is…I am completely the opposite…never wanting anyone in front of my camera to feel uncomfortable. But, there are those who like to perform and I am so very happy to oblige.
It’s not my fault the package with Dad’s costume inside arrived on the doorstep as I was arriving to the shoot. It’s not my fault that Dad had his mask on before I could even ask him to try it on. It’s not my fault they are early planners and already had their costumes for the entire family on hand. And it’s definitely not my fault they matched so perfectly as a family of “supers.” But, it IS my fault that I have such a special place in my heart for this fantastic family of crazies supers. I have photographed them several times and adore them more and more each time.
When they are not saving the world, they live what looks to be a normal life. I was SUPER excited to see the beautiful Aaron and Alex again and meet their parents for the first time.
Thank you Katie, for finding that random, cool blue wall off the side of the road. And thank you, Katie, for wearing an adorable outfit that just HAPPEN to match the fire station in downtown Detroit. Thank you, funny firemen, who posed without even being asked. And, thank you, Katie, for rocking it out!
They were looking for different. They were looking for unique. They were looking for HIGH FASHION. And I knew I was in for a treat when Alexa’s mother told me to just “meet them at the salon…there are so many awesome places here that we can use.” Squeal! You all know I love me a cool location and a mom/daughter/stylist team with great ideas and a keen fashion sense! Big thanks to LuigiBruni in Birmingham for the use of their salon. I was in love with the feel and atmosphere of the salon…they get my big, huge recommendation for being a classy, upscale, and all around awesome salon.
