Mr. & Mrs. McCann | Lansing, Michigan | Wedding

The day was looking a little overcast as the guests began to arrive at the Woldumar Nature Center. The threat of rain was in the air. However, it didn't dampen the joyous spirits of anyone. The location was gorgeous and provided a beautiful backdrop for Robert and Beth's special day. The rain even held off until the guests were at the reception barn. 

As Beth and her father came around the corner, you could just see the joy on their faces. Robert was grinning from ear-to-ear as he saw his bride in her beautiful wedding gown.

Of course there is always time for a silly photograph in between group poses.

A stunning reception held in the Barn. The decorations were just beautiful.

Since the rain decided to visit us, we weren't able to get some photographs around Woldumar. So we made a special offer to Robert and Beth. We told them we'd love the chance to come back out at a later date and get some photos of just the two of them. I think it was the best decision we could have made, because the photos turned out so beautiful.

Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. McCann! We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness.

Mr. & Mrs. Sommer | Lansing, Michigan | Wedding

The day was just perfect for a wedding. The sun was shinning, everyone was smiling and the emotions were swirling in the air. We spent most of the getting ready time with Lauren. She was glowing with happiness. When we ducked out of the bridal room to say hi to Chris, he was just a little nervous. What groom isn't? His groomsmen were helping him out by telling him things like:
"It's only the special day she has been planning since she was 6," and other comments along those lines. I'm sure he really appreciated the help. =)

The ceremony was beautiful. Chris even had a little surprise for Lauren. She thought he was going to play his guitar while his best man sang. However, Chris was the one who sang to her. She was smiling as tears of joy ran down her face. She later said she wanted to get a tissue, but she didn't want to look away from Chris.  It was a beautiful moment.

The reception was held at a relative's beautiful home. They had a large tent set up and several yard games set up around the outside. One of the most popular was Jenga. A couple of the guests got a pretty intense game going. There was also a beautiful pond that made a great backdrop for photographs. The first dance was so full of love. Lauren and her Dad had a special dance with canes and a hat for style. Chris and his mother really tore up the dance floor with their great dance moves.

We wish all the best to Chris and Lauren in their new life together as a married couple. Congratulations!

Mr. & Mrs. Bickham | East Lansing, Michigan | Wedding

After meeting Joe and Stephanie, we just knew this was going to be a fun wedding. They seemed like such great people. We arrived at the MSU Alumni Chapel in the morning, where we took some getting ready photos. The groom and his groomsman took the opportunity for a quick group selfie! You could just feel the excitement in the room. The ceremony was beautiful. After the ceremony we headed around campus for some photos in the garden and, of course, at the Sparty Statue! The reception was held at the Huntington Club. We arrived before the bridal party and had the opportunity to take some photographs before the guests arrived.

Something that made this reception truly unique was the First Dance of the bride and groom. They had a Cloud Dance. It was incredibly romantic. The emotions were high for the Father/Daughter dance, and you could just feel the love between them. Toward the end, the sister of the bride joined in the dance.

The reception is where the party really got started! It was loaded with fun. The garter was wrapped around a football and thrown to the waiting gentlemen. In the process of flying through the air the two were separated, allowing two different men to catch each piece. Well, of course a winner had to be chosen, and what better way to do that than by a Dance Off!

Anthony and Michael | 2 and 5 Years old | Lansing, Michigan

I was looking forward to seeing Anthony again. The last time we saw him, he was all geared up to play Hockey. Seriously, the cutest little hockey player every with his adorable dimples! This time we got to photograph his little brother, also.

Michael was such an independent little 2 year old. He was happy to pose with his big brother for a couple of photos. Then he wanted to pose himself...on a bench, and then in a chair, and then on a stool. Sometimes with all three in the shot. All of which he pulled onto the background by himself. When asked if he needed help he would respond "no".

Anthony was an awesome little model. He posed like a pro and could turn on a natural smile with ease. His blue eyes shined in every shot. We even got mom and dad in a couple of frames.
