Kate + Michael Married

 Oh my gosh can you believe it, I’m blogging! And it’s a recent wedding! Okay well it’s from last summer but that’s recent to me 🙂 2016 was the year of super amazing weddings and ones that meant even more because I knew the couple or at least it felt like we have been friends for years.  See Kate (the stunning one in that gorgeous white dress below) is the sister of previous clients and friends of mine! I photographed her brother’s wedding many years ago and her sister’s high school senior pictures. So when she contacted me for her and Michael’s wedding on her parent’s farm in Belding, MI, I almost squealed in delight!  Kate and Michael have this connection and energy that is magnetic. You can’t help but want to be their friends. Not only are they super sweet but they are wickedly talented, musically that is. They met doing theater on the east coast and incorporated that and her family’s super awesome farm into their big day.

The day wouldn’t have been able to be pulled off if it wasn’t her for fabulous parents, family, and friends and of course some rocking vendors. Get ready to be jealous, because I definitely was!!

Rosie + Bill Married | Lansing Capital Wedding Photographer |

I’m embarrassed to say that it’s been over a year since I’ve blogged, that’s ridiculous. It’s not because I haven’t photographed some gorgeous weddings over the last few years it’s honestly the time it takes to get a post ready to blog.  Back in 2013 I went back to work full time outside of the house so with working full time during the day and still shooting a lot of weddings a year my blog and social media posts really suffered. Not to mention I got pregnant in early 2014 so that threw another wrench into everything. But if you follow me on facebook, you can still see the things I’ve been working on over the last 2 years. These days I am only taking about 3-5 weddings a year and really the more I blog the more traffic I get, which in turn sends me more inquires and it’s so hard for me to say No! When I had my son in August 2014 I had photographed a wedding 3 days before I went into the hospital and 2 weeks after my c-section and another three on maternity leave!! So yeah it’s been a crazy two years. But I’m going to try hard to show some of the beautiful weddings I’ve photographed over the last two years.  Starting with Rosie and Bill.

I first meet Rosie in college at Michigan State University. She went to high school and was/is good friends with an old roommate of mine. So when she got engaged she contacted me to photograph her colorful, artful wedding. The colors were so bright and vibrant, and those flowers, wow holy flipping awesome! Rosie’s mom is a very talented artist and hand painted every place card frame, the cake, cake stand, art boards on every table, it was just fabulous. They were married at St. Mary’s Cathedral in downtown Lansing, just next to the Capital with their reception back at The University Club at Michigan State University.  It was fun being back on campus and exploring all of the places I loved as a student there. Enjoy this colorful summer wedding at the Capital!
