Stories from behind the lens

I love what I do, I want to share that passion with the world. Please let me know what you think of the following posts....I'd love to hear your thoughts and opinions :-)

2016 A Recap

2016 was an amazing year, blessed with so many happy couples who sealed their love with a kiss....and a few hundred of their closest friends and relatives. I just wanted to pass along a few of my favorites from what was the busiest year we have ever experienced.....so here is onward to 2017!!!!!

Austin Wedding

It truly is an honor to capture a couple's special day, sprinkle in perfect weather, great touching speeches and a ton of smiles for the happy couple....I love what I do :-)

Plowman Wedding Kirkbride Hall

Planning for a wedding is a very stressful thing, hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars go into that plan....well what happens when that plan changes? This was the case for Emily & Josh. When a family member was 30 minutes late to the ceremony it really changed the itinerary and we all had to quickly adjust. The good part is they hired a photographer with experience, who could adjust on the fly, calm their nerves and get the creative shots to capture their special day with time to spare :-)

Engaged?

With the wedding season fully underway love is certainly in the air! Here are a few pics from my most recent engagement sessions for two wonderful couples :-) As you can see I love to use natural light and the specific use of the sun is also a signature piece of my work. In these shots you will also see the emerging use of off camera flash that I have been trying to hone my skill with whenever possible. Enjoy :-)

Lake Michigan Maternity

Doing what you love to do is one's goal in life....but when you can make people happy at the same time it's even better! It was my honor and privilege to capture these beautiful maternity photos for such a sweet family. It is in these moments that you get to connect with people like the Boyce family that really make being a photographer a real honor. In the hour we spend together laughing, smiling, creating memories the rest of the world disappears and all life's worries fade, and people can focus on just how special the moment is. The moment we capture in time.
