Sneak peek: Heather & Brian

For those married couples out there who feel sheepish that they still haven’t done their Aftershots session, let me assure you that you are in good company.

3 years post-wedding these two are still glowingly in love. My favorite shot from the session is this “test” shot. They were just waiting till I was ready to start shooting.  Heather is a good friend from high school days (shout out to the Stat Girls!) and it’s wonderful to see her loved and well cared for.

But don’t let them fool you in the next one.  They’re not cold.  It was a balmy 63 degrees that day, which qualifies as shorts weather in Michigan.

So even if you’re not quite “newlyweds” anymore, don’t let that stop you from taking advantage of your Aftershots session.  Just shoot me an e-mail and I’ll get you on my 2012 calendar: karen@mattsonpictures.com

And thanks to Heather & Brian & Winston for a fun afternoon!  You guys are so cute.

Amanda & Sean Aftershots

This session was such a delight.  I wish I could do it again.  Thanks, you two!  Pics from their lovely, low-key wedding coming soon.

Two shameless adverts (Neither of them are paying me to do this.  Just showing some love.)

  1. When she’s not busy looking fancy and bride-y in front of the camera, Amanda is a very talented Detroit-area make-up artist.  If anyone is looking for someone to do make-up for their wedding or photoshoot I can put you in contact with her.
  2. During this session, the good people of Fantasy Attic in Ypsilanti let us walk in right off the street and play around and take pictures in their store.  Hooray for photo-friendly establishments!

David & Megan’s Aftershots

Brrr…this was a chilly autumn day, I remember.  Megan & David managed to heat things up anyway!  I love the way they look at each-other.  Best Wishes you two!  You are so in love and it shows.

Windy City Aftershots

For their Aftershots session Sarah & Andy toured us around Chicago.  (Thanks for driving, Andy!)

If you’re ever having a rough day & need some encouragement try donning wedding attire and walking around Chicago.  Spontaneous applause everywhere we went.
