Nicole and Ed are one of those couples that are so friendly, that as soon as you meet them you just want to be friends with them. I had a great time shooting their engagement photos last fall, and couldn’t wait for their wedding.
I knew their wedding was going to be fun, but oh man. It was so. much. fun. I was laughing with Nicole and the bridesmaids before the ceremony, and I caught myself dancing along to the excellent band they had at the reception. The best part, though, was how great of a time Nicole and Ed were having. They were so excited to be married and celebrate with their friends and family! And they had *fireworks* for their exit. Whaaat?! So awesome.
(I was even lucky enough to have them back in front of the camera last week for the upcoming issue of Mud & Magnolias! Can’t wait to share those photos too!)

Over Fourth of July weekend, I had the chance to head down to the Orange Beach, Ala. area to visit my aunt and cousin, and to meet the newest members of the family. My cousin and his wife welcomed twins Kash and Kyser in June, so they were only a few weeks old when I saw them! I was also so happy I got to do a little photo shoot with them. These two are definitely my youngest subjects to date, so this was also a fun challenge for me. But it was just so fun seeing the little fingers and noses and toes, all x2! :D
Julie and I go way back. We were locker buddies all throughout school because we both have ‘W’ last names, starting back in fifth grade! We even went to the same college (go green!) I’m so glad we have kept in touch, and I was absolutely thrilled when she and her fiancé Shea asked me to shoot their August wedding in the mitten! *happy dance* We were able to get together up in Michigan for their engagement shoot in downtown Detroit, which is a photographer’s dream. There are SO many awesome spots to do photos, like the Fox Theater and the riverwalk near the Ren Cen. And I had some wonderful subjects! All of this, plus a beautiful summer sunset made for an amazing shoot. Counting down the days until I’m back in Michigan for their wedding!
