We were a bit worried about the weather all week, but Saturday turned out to be a beautiful day for an outdoors wedding. You might remember Michelle & Mike from their engagement session about a month ago. I love this couple, they seem so happy and in love!

They had a beautiful ceremony at Vandeveer Park and released butterflies at the end. Their reception was at the Col Ballroom. I love all the little unique touches they added to their wedding. Michelle is a “Lord of the Rings fan” so both of the ring bearers had these cute little hobbit cloaks and necklaces with rings around their necks. The flower girl had faerie wings, what a cutie. At the reception all the tables had little cards with different movie covers on them. I about flipped when I saw the Labyrinth card (love that movie). It was a gorgeous wedding for a wonderful couple. I wish them both the best of luck!

Michelle looked absolutely stunning.

I really like this picture my assistant shooter Shannon took.

The very affectionate ring bearer (and adorable camera ham) giving his mom a kiss. 🙂 This one Cory took.

Right before Mike put the ring on her finger he kissed her hand, so sweet. My husband and assistant shooter Cory captured this moment.

I’ll be posting some more from this wedding in a few days.

Weekend Preview

May 12, 2008

Saturday I was lucky enough to get invited along to a model bridal session Rick Jennisch set up. I’ll be getting the chance to 2nd shoot some weddings with him and his associate photographers this summer. I’m a big fan of his work, so I’m really excited about the opportunity! You can see some more of his images from this session on his blog here, here & here. He should have some of my shots up and posted in a few weeks, I’ll post a link as soon as they’re up. Or Keep checking his blog for updates.

I also got a chance to meet Melanie and Matt Bishop of MediaInnovations. I’ve seen some of their video work online and it’s fabulous, really artistic and high quality. Rick posted some of Melanie’s shots here. The models Rick brought for the shoot were awesome, Jayna and Sorcia were real troopers, climbing up buildings and practically freezing (the weather kind of sucked). They still managed to look gorgeous.

Updated: Media Innovations posted the video from the session, you can check it out here

After all the fun with the bridal session I had to hurry over to Black Hawk state park for a family session, with my all time favorite family the Huffmans. 🙂 You might remember a newborn session I did recently for them. This time we got the whole crew together. These guys seriously crack me up.

Bri & Dave are such a cute couple.

I love this picture of Bri with her new baby. So sweet.

These two are so adorable, he kept trying to give her bunny ears. Too cute.

I really need some help for this shoe addiction.

For some reason I wasn’t the least bit surprised when Rob ran up a tree. I think he might be part monkey. 🙂

This little cutie would not sit still for anything, I think maybe monkey runs in the family, lol.

Spring is here!!
