It was such a blast to meet and get to know this duo. They flew in from Newport Beach, CA a few weeks back for some wedding planning and to have engagement pictures taken. Megan from Pretty Little Bash is helping them plan a gorgeous formal affair this summer and we are super excited to be there to document it! Here are a few of our favorites of John and Erin's snowy engagement session in Lansing (side note: We have some absolutely stunning university campuses here in Michigan, this session was shot on the campus of Michigan State University).
We have another fall wedding to share with you all today! We loved being a part of Allie and Jeff's beautiful wedding here in Grand Rapids. Their style blended modern with some rustic flare and Ludema's did an amazing job of pulling everything together with the floral design. This was the last wedding of our regular season in 2013 and we couldn't have asked for a better day or better couple to share it with. The girls got ready at the JW Marriott downtown and after we headed to a local college for the ceremony and portraits. The reception was held at the beautiful Blythefield Hills Country Club in Rockford.
Every year we take thousands of personal photographs. Between instagrams, mini sessions, and simply bringing a camera along on our adventures, we end up with a lot of photos. All of these photos are safely backed up and organized on our hard drives, but to be honest we never pull out old hard drives to look at photos. We have this life beautifully captured in photos, but if they never were looked at and enjoyed, it would be a waste for us to take those photos in the first place. This is where our yearbook comes in... once the year is completed, we compile our favorite photos into a 50 page album. We organize the book chronologically and lay it out much the same way we would a wedding album. We just got our 2013 book in the mail today and wanted to share a peek of it with you all! Some of our highlights from this past year were buying our first home, getting our dog Nora, and going on our Bahamas cruise. We encourage you to get your photos off your computer and into books! We ordered this book from our professional lab, but Artifact Uprising makes gorgeous, affordable books... go design and order one!
