This photo is so cute... and it's a cute way to put a fun spin on the dreaded clinking of the glasses at the reception!! I got it from the blog of Kelly Powers, a great photographer who I just met this weekend at the bridal show (through my good friend Jennifer of Graceful Expressions). Check out her blog for some more great pictures!! I especially love the ones she took of the couple with the little pug dog, and the wedding with the awesome sunflower field, oh, and I also loved the one in front of the book shelves... and the one in front of the shabby lil' church with broken panes of glass... and on and on I could go...
I have to tell you, I am going to have a very very hard time deciding on the photographer I book to capture my daughter's senior pictures next summer! Thank goodness she is a junior this year and I have the entire school year to decide!!
Some of my favorites are...
Taylor Grey Photography- OK seriously, I REALLY love Kerri's work- all of it!! We share a wedding couple, Theresa & Darin, who have their wedding very swiftly approaching. I am doing their wedding stationery and she did a super hot engagement session with them. One of my favorite photos is below.
Kelly Powers- I talked about her in the beginning of this post... very very talented and I have been told she is as genuine and sweet as she is talented. ;-)
Rivers Edge- they have been a photo favorite for years now. I am always happy to refer to them and am very happy when I know they are the photographers because their work is beautiful and glamourous (I have been reading too much "Fancy Nancy" to my girls lately and I fear I am beginning to talk like her).
Tim LaDuke of LaDuke Studios in Holland- What can I say, he is talented, nice, sincere, local, and very innovative behind the camera. Tim could by far be one of the most flexible photographers I have ever met. He is open to any idea, session, location you can come up with. I have been meaning to meet with him to have him photograph my wedding stationery but time keeps slipping away. This wedding season started with a bang in early February and has not showed any signs of slowing yet. I am pretty sure November will be calmer and I will finally get the chance to get in to see him with my favorite 2008 designs. I have seen many of his family portraits and I LOVE them all! I personally know some of the kids and adults being photographed and I can definitely say he has caught their personality through his artistic vision... and camera lens too. ;-)
Amy Carroll is another of my current faves- If you follow her blog (or just read through it now) you will find yourself addicted like me. I am warning you, her pictures become like a cup of coffee, for me at least, the day has not fully begun unless I check out her blog and see her new posts.
I'm addicted to a few other blogs as well and sometime I will post them all when it's not midnight!!
