Overpassed

This weekend I traveled up to Traverse City to shoot a wedding and ended up also shooting with hometown model Britney Simerson.

You can’t tell from the behind the scenes video, but we were literally fighting with tourist traffic to get this beautiful shot on the overpass connecting TC State Park to TC State Beach.

Sneak Peek: Kaitlyn & Jeff Bohnet

This weekend I headed up north to shoot Kaitlyn & Jeffrey Bohnets wedding in Elk Rapids. I initially first met this adorable couple from the Traverse City Rock Climbing gym, and I was so excited when they chose me to capture their big day. I’d like to send a very big congratulations to the newlyweds, and share a weak peak of images from their special day!

Family Project: Building a Studio Light

While visiting Traverse City, my family all pitched in helping me build a homemade light. My mother was the architect, my brother the mathematician making sure everything was measured correct, and my father the wiring genius. It’s been awhile since we have all come together as a whole to work on one project, so it was a fun bonding experience, and the light we produced, amazing!

It doesn’t look very professional, but the images that it produces, are amazing, I am so exited to begin incorporating this into more of my daily shoots! Below is the light used in it’s first ever shoot with new model Courtney Russ last night and the outcome image!

Behind the Scenes: Something Purple

This Saturday I spent in Traverse City shooting “Something Purple” for a Michigan based bridal magazine. We started the morning off at 7am, at impress Salon where our Bridal party had their hair and makeup done by the owner Sandra and her amazing team. Then headed out to the Park Place Hotel, to get finishing getting the bridal party ready in purple sweetheart dresses and tuxes from the Captains Quarters.

After we were all prepped we shot around the hotel, downtown at Sugar Kissed with some custom made cupcakes, the Brew for a round of “Lake Michigan” shots and the Red Dresser some some custom props. Special thank you to my faux bridal party for spending a chilly saturday morning with me, and all the businesses that contributed to this shoot.
