Angel + Kurt

If you’re ready to laugh and smile the whole way through a gallery, then this one is for you.

Angel, this beautiful and talented woman has been a dear friend since 19. She is ALWAYS laughing, always has a big beautiful smile and great energy. She and Kurt met at college in Michigan and moved to NY shortly after, I never was able to meet Kurt until the wedding day. One thing is for sure, this was a true match. Kurt smiles and laughs in equals measures with Angel. He also made their wedding cake, yeah.. talk about impressive!

They held their incredibly fun wedding in Angel’s parents backyard. I think I can speak for a lot of people who know the Assi’s, to say they are one incredible family. So many smiles, inappropriate and hilarious jokes combined with high energy..  I couldn’t help but laugh all day with them. 

This partly sunny day was the greatest mix on top of the surprise belly dancer, our trip to the beach for portraits and Angel and Kurt’s first dance/head bang as husband and wife. 

THE YEAR 2017

Where to begin..

 

First with so much gratitude, to the people who have believed in me and continue to push me forward <3

This has been the most successful, most challenging, adventurous, wildly out of control with love kinda year.

 

Why most successful and most challenging?

 Hands down this is been the busiest year I have had.. like as busy as in my first two years of business combined. I learned a ton of new things, business wise and have had a ton of growth since last year. On the flip side of success comes challenges. Just like with everything else, it is balance. I worked myself to the point of no social life haha and a very isolated work space at home ( does sound amazing, right?) Well, it is and isn’t. I am not use to sitting down for half of my job, and literally not verbally talking to anyone for half my days ( besides singing songs to my kitty, go ahead judge me…) so for 2018, you’ll be catching me moving around more and being active, cycling, yoga, and beach volleyball are at the top of my list. So let’s play!

 

Adventure.

I was able to travel to two different mountain ranges in 2017, so incredibly fortunate for being able to travel with one of my best ladies MeghanMelia Photography out to Boulder, Colorado and yes we drove.. I hope you saw our infamous “ Fields and Fields and Fields” video). I was also so grateful  to take one of my adventurous 2018 couples to Asheville, North Carolina. Talk about filling my heart! The mountain air is like no other, the view and to be able to photograph in it was a dream. I want more. If you’re one of those adventurous couples, let’s go! 

Besides going out of state to my favorite places besides our gorgeous Great Lakes here in Michigan, I was able to travel around our Mitten State and into Chicago. I am ALWAYS ready for new places and new faces, so reach out and let’s hang!

 

Wildly out of control with love.

Do I really need to explain that? I mean, c’mon. I have the most beautiful couples and the outpour of love radiating from them had been so exciting. Actually, I can’t even just say couples, all of my clients are so full of love, whether it is preparing for their wedding, adding a new member to their family, new business adventure or putting forth their creative flow.. it all shines in their images. 

 

This is THE YEAR 2017!
