Happy Anniversary!!!

 

Hannah and Kaleb Trash the dress (19 of 43)



Hard to believe it’s already been a year since my first wedding, and my first trash the dress session.  Happy Anniversary to the couple that changed my life, and my career.  Happy anniversary to an amazing couple!!

One year ago Hannah and Kaleb said ‘I do’.  I remember it was supposed to rain and all of a sudden the forecast changed.  Kaleb sent Hannah flowers and a note while she was getting ready at the salon and in it, it said, ‘P.S. No Rain Today’.

I have to admit, this was a very emotional wedding for me.  I cried all day long along side everyone else.  Hannah and Kaleb were surrounded by amazing friends and family.  Their support system is absolutely beautiful!





The wedding took place at Southern Exposure in Battle Creek, Michigan.  The venue was absolutely gorgeous.  All of the flowers were in bloom and amazing property gave us so much to work with.

Hannah’s mom Ellen was such a huge part of her day.  In fact she is the one I met first.  As a mother myself I know how important it is to make sure your kids have everything they need or want.  And, Ellen was right there to save the day several times. The bond that Hannah and Ellen share is a bond I hope to have with my daughter as she gets older.



I wish Hannah and Kaleb all the joy and happiness this world has to offer. They were such a joy to work with, sweet, kind and absolutely wonderful!  It’s amazing how ‘just being the photographer’ in a wedding means so much.  I was there to watch their story unfold.  I was there to capture memories they will cherish and remember forever.

This is why I am a photographer.  This is why I love my career!

DeGraw Bridal Shower


On Sunday August 14, 2016 Sarah DeGraw had her bridal shower at Southern Exposure.  This was my second time photographing there. Such a beautiful bride-to-be and such a beautiful venue.

The weather was absolutely beautiful, the shower could have been held outside. On of the first days this summer that hasn’t been scorching hot.

It was a joy and a pleasure to photograph this shower, not only do I know Sarah personally she is my cousin through marriage.  She will make a beautiful bride.  Tung is a lucky and very blessed man.

Hannah + Kaleb Wedding



 

I would have to say that this wedding was a huge success!  There was rain anticipated for days.  When the day finally arrived it was clear skies and warmth all day.  Although, it was warm, everyone enjoyed themselves.  The Bridesmaids and Groomsmen were amazing.  The wedding party and parents made this wedding day move without one hitch.

The wedding was held at Southern Exposure in Battle Creek, Michigan.  The venue was absolutely beautiful.  Hannah and Kaleb were able to have their photo taken with one of the two vehicles on location.  We decided to take the Bride and Groom photos during the reception at sunset.  This way their lovely guests didn’t have to wait any longer to start the party.

 



 

Hannah was able to have her ‘getting ready’ photos taken in front of this beautiful door with stunning light.  Hannah was so easy to photograph, she was a breath-taking bride!  I wish Hannah and Kaleb a lifetime of love, blessing and happiness!!!

This was my first wedding EVER!  I have never second shot or photographed a wedding before and was blessed enough to find Hannah and Kaleb to entrust me with their most precious memory.  It was such a beautiful day, I cried throughout every emotional moment.  It was unforgettable.
