Where have you been JEM blog??¬† Overwhelmed? Busy? Late nights at the studio? Well, we are back, that’s all that matters ūüėȬ† And to start things off I am rewinding to the beginning of July. Devin and Ryan had an evening ceremony outside the Hilton in Perrysburg, OH. I was thrilled that they were totally up for a first look. As soon as they saw each other, the tears and laughter came. I was able to watch through my lens and capture their sweet embraces. The chemistry is undeniable and they were so comfortable in each others arms. Though they did a first look, it did not take away from any of the emotion while Devin was coming down the aisle. So beautiful!¬† As I was going through these images I couldn’t get over how green her eyes are…Devin, you are a knock-out (and yes, I am a dork for using that work).¬†¬† July, were you really that far away?? Well, here are some pictures to bring back some memories…

Meet these brothers: Chace & Jaxon. They were born a little over two months ago and they were just peanuts when brought home…now they are packing on the pounds. I was able to hang out with these twins a couple weeks ago, along with Justin and Heather who are amazingly proud parents. It is written all over their faces. We love connections and feeling and capturing all this was easy to do since schnuzzling with their new baby boys is second nature.¬†¬†This was the¬†first set of newborn twins I have¬†photographed, and¬†you can imagine that when one was sleeping, the¬†other¬†one would be awake and vice versa. It took us a little longer to coo both babies to sleep, but that doesn’t matter….they ended up sleeping, and cuddling¬† next to eachother for quite a while.¬†¬†The bucket in one of these pictures was purchased with the intention of¬†placing the two of them in their and¬†even though that never worked,¬†we went along with the idea that¬†Jackson was 2 months old.¬† I also have to add that my favorite picture was unexpected,¬†I was testing out my light¬†as Heather was taking her hands away from Chace’s head, as I loaded my card, I was drawn to this picture…her hands¬†have so much love in them and it reminded me of a mother’s gentle love. ¬†Though it was only a short amount of time that I met you both, I know you are not only amazing people but you are amazing parents.

It make me feel so honored when I find out that these two drove over an hour in a half to meet me at Wildwood for their engagement pictures-with their sweet dog, who appears to have an affection for the camera ūüėȬ† How quickly these next few months will go until we meet again for their wedding. Erin and Tony, you seemed to have walked out of a movie when I saw you approaching the Manor House. You two are clearly perfect for each other…Tony is definitely smitten (I think that is my new favorite word, since I have been using it a lot) with Erin and how could he not be?? As¬†these pictures were getting edited, all of us girls at the studio would ooh and ahh over how cute this couple was. Erin-Erin.Erin. Erin. You are so sweetly beautiful, like I said in our first encounter-girl, you have skin like a porcelain doll. Though this day was so incredibly humid and called for rain, you two didn’t care and I really love that about you!¬† My favorites…

{Erica + Matt} Nothing Less than Love

August 8th, 2011

Yes, this was a perfect day. Nothing less. I was going to title this, “Nothing Less than Love and Tears” because of the so many tender moments throughout the day. Hmmm…I don’t know why I left out the tears part?? Ok…well to begin with, this wedding took place at the Ann Arbor¬† Eagle Crest Marriot, […]

Yes, this was a perfect day. Nothing less. I was going to title this, “Nothing Less than Love and Tears” because of the so many tender moments throughout the day. Hmmm…I don’t know why I left out the tears part?? Ok…well to begin with, this wedding took place at the Ann Arbor¬† Eagle Crest Marriot, which was perfect for so many reasons including that Matt is an avid golfer and he was able to golf that morning, not only that, I love photographing at new places and it was my first time here and so it was a fresh set of ideas for me…including using golf carts.¬† Erica was BEYOND stunning and as Matt saw her coming down the aisle this is when I just knew how perfect they were for eachother…Jen and I always talk about things we love best at weddings and it is very similar, I love the toasts and Jen loves those first dances among many other things, and when a groom fights back tears when seeing his bride for the first time (whether a first look or coming down the aisle)¬†is my all-time favorite part of a wedding.¬† Not only this, but the pastor was a friend of the family¬† and during the blessing at the end of the ceremony he was holding back tears as well.¬† I love when people get real with their feelings and it gets even better because I actually cried during Matt’s brothers speech. ¬† When a man called, Bigs get’s you choked up, you know things are good.¬† Erica and Matt, you two have that kind of chemistry that just fits.¬† Words can’t describe it as well as pictures….
