David and Blake . Wedding . Dexter, Michigan


David and Blake were married in November, in Minnesota.  They celebrated the wedding just two weeks ago with friends and family on a friends farm and I was lucky enough to be chosen to celebrate with them.  I have to say that it was a special honor. I loved the unique moments, the Fabulous Maxi Channel moderated the dinner and speeches, Blake’s work partner Helen and her Husbands band played during cocktail hour. There were three performances after the first dance which were powerful and amazing!  I loved the traditional moments too, the speeches all made me tear up, jumping the broom (which is one of my favorite traditions) and the cake cutting which was a pretty packed moment!  There was down time too and capturing friends just talking and hanging out was very high on David and Blake’s photography list.  With such an amazing group it was hard to stop taking photos of everyone when the night was over and as always it was hard to choose what to share, I could share them all happily but the blog might not be able to take so many photos.  Here are just a few of their day – thank you David and Blake and congratulations!

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
