Nic & Chelsea :: August 6, 2016 :: SWJ’s Emerald Hills

This beautiful August wedding took place in Edmore, MI at SWJ’s Emarld Hills.  This summer was very hot for us here in Michigan but this day was perfect.  Party cloudy and a nice breeze.  Perfect for an outdoor wedding!  My wedding day luck continues. 😉  We began our day at the home of the mother of the bride and then moved on to the wedding venue.

The love between Chelsea and Nic is so evident.  I was blessed to have met them before their big day at the engagement session which always helps with the comfort level on the wedding day.  So much anticipation and over all excitement of what was to come.   Well, their day was here and I can honestly say that Chelsea was the smiliest bride ever!  That natural glow was there all day and I couldn’t help but smile from behind the camera.  Love was in the air and it was written all over her face.  And Nic, well, he didn’t complain, not even once about pictures . 😉  Good job, Nic.

So enjoy a little stroll through their lovely day.  It was picture perfect!d


What a day!  Thank you for choosing me to capture it for you.  Keep smiling and be blessed!



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.

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!



A Growing Family


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.





















Thank you Gabby for your willingness to share from your heart.  I absolutely loved working with you this year.  Best of luck to you as your step out into this world serving others and winning everyone over with that genuine smile!
