Jen and Daves winter wedding . Cornman Farms, Dexter Michigan

Yesterday it was exactly one month since I had the most wonderful honor of photographing Jen and Dave’s wedding. <3 Jen and I have been friends for over 5 years (she is one of the most intelligent, strong and beautiful people I know) The first time I saw her after they started dating I could see he was something special, they were something special. Jen just beamed and that beaming smile, a blissed-out, grateful and happy smile, hasn’t left her face. You can see it in these pictures. Dave is shining right alongside her step by step, friends, lovers, partners. It spreads and everyone gets to feel a bit of its goodness.

The wedding day was beautiful. Famlies coming together, families missing those who couldn’t be there and everyone celebrating love and new beginnings. Cornman Farms was the perfect venue, warm and cozy, just right for a winter wedding. Make sure to look out the windows behind Jen and Dave when they are giving their vows. The sunset in a brilliant explosion of pink and blue created a celestial backdrop behind them as they spoke their vows. (magical really) Then there was the DJ in from LA who kept things (as they say in the biz) heated up ;) (I am going to get the link in here asap) So much dancing!! I even joined in for one or two (thank you, Squad, for making me participate! <3) Everything was just as it was and just as it was it was perfect. Congratulations my friends, I am so very happy for you.

(If I overindulged in choosing photos I feel no guilt, it was all I could do not to share all 1000+ of them!!! )

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.
