The Bur Wedding :: July 16, 2016 :: Michigan State University

This day was their day.  These Spartans got the day they had hoped for and couldn’t wait to lay their eyes on one another.  It was an honor to capture the union of Hannah and David.  Hannah is an Alma girl, and it really does seem like yesterday that I took her senior pictures.  And now, a few years later I was able to capture another turning point in her life.  What a blessing!

We started our day together at the Hyatt Place in Eastwood Towne Center in Lansing.  The guys and girls got ready and then we headed separately to MSU where they chose to see each other before the ceremony.  The wedding took place at the campus chapel and then we all took off to party at Old Town Marquee in Lansing.  It was such a unique venue and such a fabulous area!

Enjoy a stroll through the Bur’s big day.  It’s a good one.

 

 

Thank you so much, David and Hannah for choosing me to capture your day.  You all are lovely and I wish you all the very best in this beautiful life together.

xoxo,

Gifford Wedding :: June 25, 2016

Every wedding is special and I feel so honored to capture such a meaningful day for my couples but this day was particularly special because the bride is my sweet cousin.  The bride and groom were surrounded by so much love on this sunny, hot day in June.  The wedding and reception took place at Buck’s Run Golf Club in Mt Pleasant.  Enjoy a glimpse of the highlights from their big day!

 

It was just a blessing to be a part of each moment.  Thank you Carlee and Tyler for choosing me.  I hope that you treasure these images for many years to come!

xoxo,

Molly

Gabby Ramon :: AHS :: Class of 2016

This year I will be striving for change in the blogging department…like allowing people to see more completely, the photos I take.  Let’s be honest, it’s been about 100 years since my last post.  Give or take a few. 😉  So, I thought I’d start with some of my outstanding senior models from the class of 2016. Last year at this time I asked for a few of my chosen models to write a little about themselves, finishing this statement: I am most likely to…….. what?  I loved what Gabby wrote so I thought I’d start with her.  What a gem of a girl.  I was so proud to have her on the team this past year!

Here’s what she wrote:  Mostly Likely to Serve Others

It is said that true leaders always lead by serving others first before themselves. Reaching out to those in need, having compassion for others, and greeting friends, family, and strangers with a smile on your face is what brings true beauty to life. I love to make people happy; I strive to make sure that everything is cool, calm, and collected in my life. I am able to reach out to others and do things for people by participating in my high school’s student government and by helping out my class as much as I can. More recently, I have been pushing myself to look beyond my selfish ways and serve others first. Let me tell you, it is a great feeling! Rather than being jealous of others (I tend to become green with envy at my close to perfect friends) I chose to support my friends and family members by opening my heart to their wonderful accomplishments. There is no better feeling in the world than the feeling one can get when they give all that they can. By lightening the burdens of others, it makes the world a better place.  You can serve others just by being there for those who need a friend to talk to or a shoulder to cry on. Every young girl should know that true beauty can be found in those who are most likely to serve those around them.

The Ems Wedding :: July 11, 2015 :: Paris, MI

I’m just so excited to share this beautiful July wedding.  I met Erin a couple of years ago when she came to Alma for a photography mentoring session with me at the studio.  Erin is a fabulous photographer in her area so I was happy to teach her my tips and tricks.  Since then, we’ve kept in touch and I just had a feeling (ok, she told me) that she’d be getting engaged soon.  Well, the day arrived and I couldn’t have been more excited to book this gal’s wedding.  I just love her personality and I couldn’t wait to meet her guy.  Turns out he’s a real keeper.  I can see why she snatched him up!

You heard me right, the wedding began in Paris.  Paris, Michigan that is and the weather was just perfect.  We got ready in the couple’s home with the ladies, while the guys did their thing at mom and dad’s house.  With Paige Marie by my side again for this day, we were able to capture it completely from start to finish.  Take a look inside the wedding day of this dynamite couple.  <3
