Now, moving on.   May we humbly suggest an utterly fantastic gift idea?

sneak peek: Aftershots in Northern MI

I cannot do this place justice.  (Wouldn’t it be sad if I could?)

If you haven’t been to Sleeping Bear Dunes then set your GPS to Empire, MI and just go.  The whole roadtrip home we dreamed about getting a cabin up there someday.


Wedding: Chicago Area

To the newlyweds: Thank you for letting us spend your wedding day with you!  You were a delight to work with!

To everyone else: Yes, she does look that lovely in every frame.  Every. single. frame.

Phil & Renee’s Wedding

We are so excited to have Phil & Renee’s Wedding published on Style Me Pretty!  Whenever I visit that blog I’m inspired by the beautiful images.  To have our work displayed there with some of the best in the business is humbling.

Special thanks to you Renee for giving me the nudge to submit!
