Lauren + Lewis' Wedding Photos

I can not imagine a better way to begin our 2017 wedding season than with Lauren + Lewis. I thought it would be good since they were taking Alex and I back to The MillCreek Wilde, where we were married, but that was just the beginning. Not only was the wedding stunning (both visually and emotionally), Lauren and Lewis allowed themselves to shine through.

They are self-admittedly quirky (as evidenced by the "let's do senior photos on this fence and school bus prom photos" shown below) but in that deep, authentic way where you immediately get the sense that they know themselves and they're not afraid to be themselves. They are the best of people. They felt like old friends. And I hope that they do become old friends. 

Mieke + Mike's Maternity Photos

Last week, I had the amazing privilege to photograph Mieke, an old friend, as she comes closer to the end of her pregnancy. Believe it or not, I am due 6 weeks after her and our bumps are about the same size. She looks beautiful. And not because of the size of her bump. She looks beautiful because, as you can see in the photos below, she radiates with love and the expectation of new life. Many thanks to her and her absolutely wonderful husband, Mike, who trusted me to capture this part of their story.

Emily + Ben's Teaser Trailer

It has been forever since our last post and it's mostly been because we've been climbing out from under a mountain of work. I'm hopeful that as some jobs wrap up and wedding season begins, I'll be able to check in more often with some of the beautiful new things we've been creating.

So, I'll start here with Emily and Ben's Wedding Teaser Film. We'd posted some of their wedding photos back in February and I thought it would be good to let people know that yes, we can do both photography and videography at the same wedding.

Here is a taste. I love that they were open to us doing something a little bit different with the music. We used a recording of Franz Schubert's "Gott Ist Mein Hirt" (Psalm 23), performed by the Choral Scholars. Enjoy!
