Destination Wedding Photographer // Made My Week – Vol 54!

This week was made extra special because two of our gorgeous 2014 weddings were featured on wedding blogs!

All weddings are special, but sometimes they become even more special when gorgeous wedding blogs decide to feature their loveliness!  And today…that is exactly what has happened.  Norm & Sarah’s (see the full wedding post here) Felt Mansion wedding is being featured on Every Last Detail.  When one of my favorite wedding blogs features one of my favorite weddings, magic happens.  View the blog feature here!  Michelle from Red Heels Events blew me away with this gorgeous design.  Absolutely perfect!

Grand Rapids Photographer // Made My Week – Vol 16!

Oops!  Last week flew by and I completely forgot the “Made My Week” post….I hope you can forgive me :)

This week went by just as fast, but it was great.  I am so excited to say what made my week.  This week I conquered something pretty amazing for photographers this time of year…..

Earlier in the year, I made it a goal to speed up my turnaround time for all photo editing….and I am so happy to say that I did just that.  Not only was I able to speed it up, but as of today, I am 100% caught up on editing!  I know….is that really a big deal??  Just ask another photographer and I think their answer will be similar to mine! 

Something else that made my week was having a fun shoot featured that Shelby, from The Day’s Design, and I put together earlier this spring.  The lovely Lauren from Every Last Detail  published it over on her wedding blog and we were thrilled.  Seeing my work on Lauren’s blog always makes this lady happy!

Have an amazing weekend!! 

Grand Rapids Wedding Photographer // Sex and the City Wedding Inspiration!

Shelby, from The Day’s Design, and I dreamed up this inspiration shoot earlier this year.  We have been patiently waiting to share it with you because we knew it was being featured on the lovely Every Last Detail wedding blog.  It was posted today, so we are beyond thrilled to show some of the glitzy-glam details!

We both wanted to show more of an upscale-downtown wedding that Carrie (from Sex and the City) and the girls would have attended, with lots of sparkle, big hair and even a pair of Manolo Blahniks.  After spending hours doing research (AKA watching episodes and movies again) we think we pulled it off!  It was such a fun experience getting to know Shelby and photographing something so pretty!

Here is a fun video from Inspiration Video!

Our ladies started off their day at Cheeky Strut where they were made even more gorgeous than they already were!

Erik & Lauren were the best models ever…and fit the part of Carrie and Mr. Big so well (even though they have never watched the movies or series).
