wedding : jeff and amy 9.12.09

Jeff and Amy are just so cute. I love them. We enjoyed their e-session last year and from the moment we met them we just knew their wedding would be amazing. They proved me wrong, it was FANTABULOUSLY GORGEOUS!!!!


Just take a look at her dress. I couldn't be more in love with this dress.

Don't forget about the glamourous Amy (more to come).

The Stanner's so graciously lent their lake house as the ceremony and reception venue. This house is so luxurious. I would LOVE to shoot here again.

I love how her accessories go oh so well together. Her hair piece was by Portobello Jewelry. Earrings and necklace set from JCPenny's.

Here's Jeff and the guys hanging out. It was a ND vs. MSU game day and I know how hard it was for them to pry their eyes off the TV to take some awesome pictures. BUT, I have to say that I just love everything about these guys. They were a great bunch.

Vendor Spotlight : Northernlight Filmworks

I met this amazing couple (John and Jen Moon of Northernlight Filmworks) the day I decided to quit my job at Burkhart. I found it fascinating that they used the same equipment that a photographer does for their cinemotography. They totally rocked out our little shoot out in Indy last month. Check out the amazing video the put together. I'm in awe!!!

Ps. Check out 2:06 minute. They got a great shot of me laughing (candid). Which is rare because I have camera radar.

Grace : It means "A Gift from God"

Right now, I'm sitting at the South Bend Chocolate Cafe watching my car so that no one steals my gear that I am supposed to be shooting with at this moment. I have some time to kill before my next session begins at 5pm. I am reading devotionals that I don't take the time to read on a daily basis, like I should. I am going through all the things that I need to be doing, but can't do because what I need to do it is at the house. I'm wondering, how has life gotten me to this point in my life?


All my life, I went back and forth with what I wanted to be when I grew up. I was decent at doing hair, maybe a hair stylist? I loved to cook, maybe a chef? I loved taking pictures, maybe a photographer? And don't forget the #1 dream of every little girl, I wanted to be a singer. None of these things seemed to be something I could do for a living.


I started my business in 2005, just photographing for a friend of the family. I was fresh out of high school and still wasn't sure what I was going to go to college for. Then, I did another wedding for a friend of the family in early 2006. It was then that I realized that I REALLY wanted to do this full time. I started to work at Picture People to gain experience. I could not do it. I didn't like working in a studio AT ALL. I started to give up. If I couldn't work in a studio then surely I couldn't make a living off of photography then why continue, right? Wrong. That year, I met the most amazing person I have ever met. My husband. He too had a passion for photography and wanted to help me grow my business.


When we decided that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together, we also decided that we wanted to go into business together. But surely we BOTH couldn't make a living do so right? Wrong. Over the past 3 years of being with my wonderful husband (and best friend), he has done so much to push me and encourage me to get out the mind set that this would only be a weekend job. Well, it use to be a weekend job and I'm not really sure how some people do it, and I don't even edit the pictures. :)


As I sit here and think of what I can do without my list, without my graphics, without my family, I realize that this is what I'm suppose to be doing. God has blessed a very unfortunate situation for our family and has opened many, many doors for us. These doors would not have been so open with me working for someone else. This week is booked solid. Next week is looking pretty booked as well. I would not have been able to do this on my own, and I know that.


God has worked in mysterious ways for my family and my business. He has done so much and I have done so little to thank Him. Therefore, I give Him ALL the glory for where my life is at in this very moment. I never dreamed that I could do this. BUT, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Now, if only that strength would get me out of bed on Sundays to praise Him.

Trash That Dress

In light of the trees changing colors and the weather cooling down, we are wrapping up our trash the dress sessions for the year. This could either be your wedding dress or a formal dress you wore to prom or a formal dance. We have discounted the session to $100 for $200 if booked now through October 31st. If you are brave enough to schedule your session in November, the session will be discounted to $75.


Here are just a few examples of what is to come.


My beautiful intern: Kayli
