A year ago today Maywan and Nikkita said ‘I do’. A good friend of mine Jermaine Jackson contacted me just a couple of days before the wedding asking if I was available to photograph his brothers wedding. Of course I said ‘Yes’! This family had recently lost someone very important to them. Maywan’s mother passed away. The wedding was an elopement. Nikkita and Maywan had been together for a while and decided they wanted to make it official.
This wedding was particularly special because Maywan’s brother Jermaine was the officiant. He was up front with his brother on his special day. That’s not an everyday occurrence.
There wasn’t a dry eye in the seats or at the alter. In fact I even cried. It was a very beautiful and delicate ceremony held at Kindleberger Park in Parchment Michigan.
After the ceremony we walked around and were able to get some very beautiful photos!
Nikkita was absolutely stunning. Breathtaking in fact. What a beautiful person inside and out. She didn’t even know that it was going to be photographed and when she found out was so thankful.
Maywan was a little late to the ceremony. However, everyone knew he was coming. The second he saw Nikkita you could see his heart smile. She is definitely his other half.
When you love someone and it shows through the photos, I know I have done my job. The love that these two have for each other is amazing. Maywan looks at Nikkita like she’s the last soul on Earth. Their love is what young people dream about! It was a joy and an honor to be a part of their special day! I wish them all the happiness this world has to offer!
Ever wear high heels to a wedding, event or anything outside? It’s the worst isn’t it??!! I was in a wedding a few years ago in a field. Here I was wearing this short beige dress, with these super cute silver heels. And I had to walk the length of the entire aisle on my tip toes. Every time I put my heels down they went right into the soft dirt. I had to spend the entire ceremony on my tip toes. The ceremony was short. However, my calves were feeling it when all done. I then had to do wedding party photos in these heels. (Insert Fake Happy Smile Here!)
Fast forward several years…
This year I was at a wedding that was going to be in a field as well. I looked down and saw this clear looking thing on the heel of one of the brides high heeled shoes. When I asked her what they were, she told me ‘Solemates‘. These plastic rubbery covers easily slip on and off your heels. Not only are these ‘Solemates‘ awesome for in the dirt. They are just as awesome on steady solid ground. They help with balance, coordination. And, lets be totally honest here. We could definitely use some balance and coordination when we have a couple of drinks. Which makes them super awesome for wedding receptions! I have not had to use them. So, this is not from experience at all.
I personally would purchase them because of the usefulness of these. Not only are they super useful when it comes to walking in high heels which is a skill all on its own. They are small and come in different colors to match your shoes. And, to top it off they come in different sizes as well! If you plan on wearing high heels for any reason in the near future I recommend looking into these!

The clouds parted, the sun came out and it was SMOKING HOT!!! And, I’m not talking about the weather. These two had such an beautiful, awesome, amazingly gorgeous day!! It was such a joy and honor to be a part of their wedding. I wish these two all the joy in the world!!!

On August 12, 2016 It was super hot, but that didn’t stop this awesome couple from getting married. Jermaine Jackson was the officiant, Maywan the groom and the beautiful Nikkita was the stunning bride. I was notified the night before the elopement. It was a small ceremony. The memories of this ceremony will last a lifetime.
Maywan and Nikkita were naturals in front of the camera. It was a pleasure and a joy to capture the love that these two share.

It best to get a head start on booking vendors, photographers and anything that involves another business for your wedding. The reason being these companies could book your date if you wait too long. A lot of people book their photographer a year in advance. Once wedding season picks up the dates book up like wildfire.
