So While I was in Cali back in July Lily was holding down the fort on Mackinac. She had two awesome weddings all over the island.
So.. instead of me posting pics and writing about weddings I wasn’t there for… I thought I would hand over the blog reigns to Lily…
World… meet Lily!! ….
Hi there… I am so excited to be writing my first blog.. and for it to be about these two couples.
It was an absolute thrill to shoot Rosana & Mike’s wedding! I am so lucky that my first couple to do on my own was
so warm, fun, and beautiful (which made it easy on me!). Rosana and Mike’s wedding was specifically unique in that Rosana is from
Brazil and Mike: from the States. Their wedding
was incredibly touching… seeing two families come together, despite language
barriers and the way little Yusof was included was very moving.
It was a gorgeous Mackinac summer day at Ste. Anne’s and then the Island
House. It was my first time shooting at both places… and I can’t
wait to shoot there more!
Rosana & Mike, I was truly honored to be a part of your big day,
and inspired by the love I saw between the two of you! May your life
together be filled with happiness and joy! Thank you so much!
Then a quick week later.. I was back behind the camera… on my own as
Andrejka was off in California … shooting weddings I suppose… but
who knows (I bet she was at the beach)!.. just kidding, A…
I had the pleasure of shooting Kristen and Tim at Mission Point Resort. The weather may have been a bit unsure of itself outside, but the love between these two was definite.
What an incredible couple! Kristen was practically fresh off the plan from Iraq, where she was most recently working as a diplomat, and Tim is an accountant for many foreign countries. From the amazing things their family and friends shared about them, and their obviously generous and kind demeanors, I saw that these two are truly helping the world become a better place everyday.
May you both receive all the love you which hand out daily in your jobs and amongst your families! You deserve it! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your beautiful day, I wish you the best!
