SEE WHAT WE ARE UP TO!!!
Every year all my photographer friends and colleagues get together to enter Print Competition. This is the yearly equivilent to the Super Bowl or Olympics in the photo world...We start out at our state convention and go on to the International Print Competition. Our Convention is always a time to reconnect with our fellow photographers and we cheer each other along the journey to do our best for our clients and within the group. We are fortunate to live in a state that is home to Many, MANY, GREAT image makers and I am always humbled to be able to compete alongside the talent we have within the Professional Photographers of Michigan. This year I was honored to be named the Photographer of the Year for Michigan. Each year I try to push myself further creatively to produce timeless and creative images. This allows me to hone my skills to provide the best experiences and pictures to the wonderful families that call on us to create for them!
I had 5 entries this year and I am allowed 4 to go onto the next level (International)... I cannot post those images here until after the competition. The images here are the images from a book that I entered called "Table for Eight"
The last day of September was a fun and exciting party with Shawn and Kaitlyn. The day started with a ceremony at St Simon's in Ludington and the most bubbles I've ever seen and ended with another spectacular sunset in Manistee. We enjoyed all the many places that we photographed Shawn and Kaitlyn including the Vogue Theater and the Ramdell in Manistee...enjoy this sneak peek of a couple of my favorites!!
Playing on the beach, in wedding attire, with no time constraints....That's our post wedding session-Make this a part of your wedding plans!!!
I have been VERY fortunate to work with this family through out the years doing Senior Portraits and Baby pictures. Saturday we met with the entire family for a Family Portrait at the Ludington Beach. As you can tell this family has lots of fun together and we enjoyed spending the morning with them.
We have spent a lot of time with Brent and Lindy over the past year photographing them in all 4 seasons, so on their wedding day it was like spending time with old friends. We had lots of fun adventures with them from the beach in Ludington to the Ramsdell theater in Manistee. Their day was filled with laughter, love and even SPRINKLES!!! Thank you to the Papes and Gillett families for making it a fun day to be a part of!!! Get some popcorn and sit back and enjoy a little peek of their wedding...
