We’ll be home for Christmas…

by Jody on September 23, 2008, posted in Uncategorized

Rather often Zach and I get emails (or FaceBook messages :) of Michigan people asking us when we will be in town next so we can do a shoot of their family, kids, friends, or we have some couples who had really horrible wedding photos and want to get dressed up again and get some awesome new shots.

Well never fear, Michiganders! Zach and I are coming home to Michigan for Christmas and we are working it into our time at home to be available to schedule in some Lifestyle Sessions.


These Lifestyle shoots are $1,000 and you normally receive:

  • Anywhere from 2-3 hours of hanging/shooting time… sometimes more
  • Both Zach and Jody shooting
  • Personal online viewing and ordering gallery
  • Non-stuffy, non-cheesy, non-generic, high quality photos that capture your family

However, in honor of Christmas we are going to include an 8×12 Gallery Wrapped Canvas Print (*continue with blog to see what this exactly is) with your Lifestyle Session. We might even shoot you a few web sized photos to email around to family or put online and brag about your kids :)


Of course, there are many other options of items you can additionally order (albums, Christmas cards, prints, digital images, etc.)…


*Note: You do not have to be located in Michigan or set up your shoot around Christmas to take part on what we are offering. You can schedule your session now in preparation for Christmas cards, gifts, etc. :)


Enjoy a few photos from some Lifestyle Sessions!

What is a canvas?
Our canvases are handmade in California and can be ordered in any shape and size up to 100”. The images of your choice are printed with the highest quality archival inks that will never fade or discolor. Your canvas is then hand crafted around a custom frame continuing around the sides for a beautiful print that is ready to hang on your wall with no additional framing needing. Canvas prints are perfect for filling any size wall space with a clean, modern look to enhance your home.

Can’t forget about the Car!

So maybe we already gave you a glimpse into the very cool wedding of Joel and Michelle, but it wouldn’t be exactly complete if we didn’t share these two more photos with you…

This get-away car was a surprise Michelle planned for Joel! Isn’t it great?

And now we will leave you with one more photo of our lovely bride…

Tyler & Sarah and Joel & Michelle

by Jody on September 22, 2008, posted in Featured Weddings

What a packed wedding weekend!

Saturday evening Tyler and Sarah were hitched! Consider this a sneak peek for now because there are so many awesome moments to blog on! This wedding was coordinated by Gail Vandygriff, and her associate Kathy, was such a calming joy to have there running the day! The beautiful flowers were done by Vicki Sanders of Branching Out Floral & Event Design . The reception hall was gorgeous. It was elegantly lit by Nashville Event Lighting and we will have even more photos of that to show soon!

On Sunday Joel & Michelle were hitched at the awesome venue CJ’s off The Square. Amy Parmen is fantastic to work with there, and we highly recommend her and CJ for any of your wedding needs (they also own and run Williamson County Weddings & Events as well)!

Congratulations Sabrina & Patrick!

by Jody on September 18, 2008, posted in Behind the Scenes,Featured Weddings

We had the awesome privilege of shooting Sabrina & Patrick’s wedding on Saturday at the Belle Meade Plantation! It was most definitely warm the earlier parts of the day, but the weather was absolutely beautiful come the evening. This wedding was coordinated by the lovely Alice Hendry. Talk about a woman who is great at making sure all the special details of your day are in place!

Enjoy the pictures!

I want to take a moment here and show you one of the many cool advantages of having a 2-photographer husband and wife team. Because Zach and I have our different styles we love to shoot in (Zach with the stylized big lighting, and myself with the natural lit, candid photos) a bride and groom get a great variety of awesome shots from candid moments to close up detail shots, while Zach is shooting far and big!

Here is a Zach shot:

Here is what I took at the same time focusing on some details and her candid moments inbetween:

One last image before I end this post, which most definitely calls for commentary… Something about Zach, which I can’t fully explain, is he is a kid magnet when it comes to weddings. He has such a great way with kids, and they seem to sense it, and they love him… ESPECIALLY the girls.. including one of the adorable flower girls of this wedding.

The first dance between the bride and groom has begun and I hear laughter to my right… I turn my head… and this is what I see…

Photobucket

As Zach was down shooting the flower girl came right up to him, put her arm around him and began stroking his head! It was the CUTEST thing in the world! So glad I got a shot of that… Zach the ladies man! lol…

This really was a great wedding. It was very evident everyone was enjoying the fellowship of each other celebrating the marriage of these two great people. Thanks again Patrick & Sabrina for allowing us to be a part of this!!
