I asked Erica as she sat in the salon chair getting her hair and makeup done. 

She replied with a smile, "Good, he didn't want to leave me last night. We honestly don't like spending time apart. We just love each other so much."

Throughout the day the happy couple proved just that! Everyone could see how much these two adored each other. We could see it, as well, in the detail they put into planning their big day. Details like the ribbon on Erica's bouquet being from the dress she wore from their first date, or how they wanted to go to St. Henry's in Rosebush, which was the spot they first laid eyes on each other. They even had their reception at Buck's Run Golf Course, the same place, the same day of meeting, the two chatted the night away while participating in her cousin's wedding party. Everything came full circle. In Erica's words, "It was just meant to be!"

It appears to be just that... meant to be. And we feel so happy to have been able to capture their love story. 

Congratulations Erica & Dan!!

Tyler + Courtney https://www.guysanddollsphotography.com/blog/2017/11/tyler-courtney I cannot say enough good things about Courtney and Tyler's wedding. Did it rain all day? Yes. But, everyone made the most out of the weather and had such good attitudes about it, especially Courtney and Tyler. They were just happy to be tying-the-knot, and I was happy to capture it all!  Check out a few of my favorites below.

Mandi + Nick https://www.guysanddollsphotography.com/blog/2017/10/mandi-nick This is my first attempt at blogging....I am not a writer but I think it's fun to share some of the stories from our sessions.  One of the really great parts of our business is the relationships we build with our clients.  These relationships fuel our passion for what we do-capture your memories forever.  We first met this couple when they booked us to photograph their wedding in the fall of 2015.  Dana had a wonderful time with them on their wedding day and captured many beautiful images.  They called us this fall to book a session and it turns out they have been very busy in the last two years.  They added a beautiful little girl to their family AND purchased a business!  The day of their "fall"session it ended up being 90 degrees!  Mandi had envisioned boots and sweaters but quickly changed their outfits to go with the weather! Dan got lots of great shots and everyone survived fall heat.  And as you can see even little Miss Q was smiling the whole time!! Can't wait to see them the next time they come for an updated portrait-what will their next adventure be?!  -Kari

Halie + Matthew :: 08:19:17 https://www.guysanddollsphotography.com/blog/2017/9/halie-matthew-08-19-17 Matthew and Halie are both such genuinely sweet and caring individuals. We are so lucky to have been apart of their wedding. We began the day at St. Michael's church in Remus, Michigan before heading to Buck's Run Golf Course for the reception. To get a little quality time with the wedding party, we made a pit stop at Nelson Park. My favorite part of the day was at dusk, when we whisked the bride and groom away for some AMAZING portraits!

Emily + Lucas 07.01.17 https://www.guysanddollsphotography.com/blog/2017/8/emily-lucas-07-01-17 I may use common expressions while blogging, "It was the perfect day," "She was the most beautiful bride," ect. But, when I say Emily and Lucas are truly meant to be, I really mean it! Not that I don't mean it when using other expressions, I'm just emphasizing how perfect these two are together! Emily and Lucas met because Lucas was randomly paired with Emily's brother as a roommate in the dorms at Central Michigan University. Initially, Emily thought Lucas was really cute, but remained quiet about feelings. It wasn't until she noticed Lucas returning her affections that they really hit it off!

Let's fast forward to their proposal story, because it's definitely worth sharing! Lucas planned an amazing scavenger hunt across CMU for Emily, hitting all the spots that had significance to their relationship. She went back to the dorms, to the library, outside the UC and lastly found herself at the gazebo on campus, where Lucas was waiting for her. This entire time, Emily was thinking she was going to end up with a Pandora Charm to add to her bracelet, so she was pleasantly surprised when Lucas got down on one knee and asked her to be his forever.  All of the thought and planning done by Lucas to make that day so special, has ladies everywhere a little envious! Seriously, what a guy!

Their wedding on July 1, 2017, was just as perfect as their relationship. The weather cooperated (this has been a very wet Michigan summer). We began the day at Salon Blu before heading to the church. After the ceremony we made a quick stop at Central Michigan University before heading to their reception at St. Ives Golf Course in Canadian Lakes. We have so many favorites from their wedding! Make sure you check it out below and make it all the way to the bottom! Lucas and a few groomsmen gave an impressive performance of "Ice, Ice Baby!"

Mr. and Mrs. Logan, thank you for letting us capture your big day!

Kelly + Kohl https://www.guysanddollsphotography.com/blog/2017/8/kelly-kohl Kelly and Kohl are one of our 2018 wedding couples and we couldn't feel luckier to be apart of their upcoming big day! They are both incredible individuals, but together they make a power couple (I mean, just look at all their cuteness!). Their session was extremely last minute, but we are so glad we were able to sneak them in! Kelly really wanted to incorporate the wheat fields for her and Kohl's engagement pictures. The day of their session, the wheat had started to be harvested. Dan had to travel a little further from his usual spot to find a field that hadn't been touched yet! They extra hike was well worth it though. While on their journey to find the perfect wheat field, they stopped alongside a beautiful country road with amazing greenery and bright yellow wildflowers. Some of these images are my personal favorites, but their entire session was beautiful. Make sure you check it out below!

Erin + Dominic :: 05.19.17 https://www.guysanddollsphotography.com/blog/2017/6/erin-dominic-05-19-17 From our initial consultation, Erin emphasized how important photography was to her, and she made sure there was going to be plenty of time to capture everything. Opting for a first look definitely helped achieve this, and (SPOILER ALERT!) we ended up with some pretty cute photos from it :) This also helped ensure that the entire day was all about them! We were able to whisk them away to multiple locations on the gorgeous Tullymore Golf Resort property. All Erin had to say to Dominic was, "grab me!" He'd pick up her dress train, and off we would go to capture so much of the love the two share together.

Their day was beautiful and full of emotion. Right from the first look with Erin's father, I knew this was going to be a wedding where I was going to wipe a few tears of my own away! Sure enough, my "allergies" acted up again during speeches and toasts. The amount of love and support Erin and Dominic have from their family and friends is outstanding. The speeches his brother and her sister and father gave before dinner made this very apparent. They have an amazing support system, which I'm sure will help as they start their lives together as MR. & MRS. in Washington state.

Erin and Dominic- you had an amazing wedding. Dan and I feel very lucky to have captured your big day!

xoxo Dana

There are so many moments on a wedding day that we look forward to each time we shoot a wedding. One of them being when the father gets ready to walk his daughter down the aisle. This moment captured below is one of my favorites. The wedding was at Dow Diamond Baseball Field on a crisp October day. With the ceremony taking place on the field, the wedding party waited to walk down "the aisle" in one of the dugouts.  In this moment, the bride is looking out onto the baseball diamond while her father looks down at her and smiles. I love that we can only see the father's profile revealing a glimpse of his smile. Even with just the glimpse, you can see pure love and joy in his expression. 

When capturing this moment I chose to turn off the strobe on my camera. I opened up my aperture to let more of the light flood into the tunnel and lens. The effect is dramatic, and that is what I wanted. In post-production, I made this photo black & white. I wanted to eliminate distractions and focus on the emotion and I think making this photograph black and white helped achieve this. Lastly, I really like the leading lines and framing in this image. The lines of the tunnel lead your eyes to the subjects. The negative space around their faces help emphasize the emotion being portrayed.

This week I picked a shot from Bailey and Jesse's engagement session as one of our favorites. Can you tell why I picked it!? We timed the session so that it would end around golden hour. This way we could capture their romance in the beautiful, dreamy light.  We were lucky with the weather. It was a beautiful summer evening with clear skies. Sure enough as the sun was starting to set, I was able to capture the warm glow of a light leak over their heads into my lens. While it is a gorgeous photograph, what really makes this memorable was what Bailey whispered to Jesse as I was posing them. She said, "You're looking at me the same way you did the first time you kissed me." <3<3<3 Of course I instantly knew this photograph was going to rock! I love the emotion being portrayed in this photograph and the way they are looking at each other, but I'm also a hopeless romantic. I can direct, pose and correctly expose an image, but I can't make the emotion. This is 100% them!

Concept shoot before

 

 

Hello again! It's time for another blog post!! Just to give you a quick recap from last week, Dan and I are starting a weekly blog series where we choose one of our favorite images to discuss. Please feel free to comment with any of your thoughts. This week I chose a beautiful black and white bridal portrait as one of my favorites. It came from a Trash-the-Dress session last October. While it was a beautiful Fall day, it was pretty chilly out. Miss Rachael was a champ though. She eagerly went into the water and didn't complain at all! The images we captured were stunning, all because of her vision and her willingness to have a little fun! Check us out on the right, BEFORE we went in the water! Can you tell I do not own fishing waders!? The groom generously let me borrow his.  They might be a little big, but they got the job done (minus a small leak in the left leg, but hey, it was totally worth getting a little wet)! :P 

 

 

 

 

 

Water theme trash the dress sessionBoho Bride in Water

 

 

<< This is a photograph that stops me in my tracks, and makes me think about the meaning behind it.  Rachael rocked this session because despite wading through the cold water, pulling a 10 foot long wet veil, fighting the current and walking on slippery/sharp rocks, she makes it look effortless. Even with all this going on, she looks so serene and graceful. It's mysterious and intriguing. I can't help but to wonder what she is thinking about. I'd like to think that as she looks back to pull her veil she notices her ring and remembers her wedding day, which makes her smile. But, I think that's up to everyone's own interpretation. 

This photo is really beautiful in color, but I think it was meant to be in viewed in black and white. Sometimes color can distract from the meaning of an image. Instead of focusing on the bright oranges and yellows originally in this photograph, my eyes, go straight to her gaze and then follows her gaze to her left hand, which then follows the veil to the ripples in the water. There is really easy movement in this image.

I also really like the texture and crispness of the ripples around her. They fade to a nice bokeh around her face. I purposely used the 70-200mm lens to pull in the background around her. We were shooting in the afternoon so there was plenty of light coming through the trees. The long lens softens the light and creates a nice glow around her and eliminates distractions. 

It's not everyday you have a client that wants a fine art session, but we really enjoyed it, and we LOVE the turnout!

I chose this candid from the Odykirk Wedding at Buck's Run Golf Course this past June! I am completely smitten with everything about this photograph. Everyone has such genuine smiles. Can't you almost hear the laughter when you look at this picture? I heard a saying once, "You smile and the world smiles back." For the most part, it's true. It reminds me of my college days working as a cashier. I would have the rudest customers, and the negative energy would put me in a bad mood. All it would take was one customer to smile at me and say, "How are you doing today?" BAM. I'd smile back and feel a million times better. This photo has the same effect. You can be having a bad day, but you come across something like this, and it makes you come out of your slump.  How can you not smile (at least a little) when you look at this! 

The emotion in this photo definitely makes this image a winner, but I also really like the composition. The color, movement, and negative space all make this photo really successful. I usually like detail in the sky, but here I prefer the white sky surrounding the ladies. It brings my attention to their expressions.  I'm also really drawn to the colors of the bridesmaid dresses. Purple is my favorite color and these shades of lavender are exquisite. The wind, along with the girls walking toward the camera, create really effective movement (thank you Mother Nature for the blustery weather!!).  

 

These are all reasons I picked this photograph as one of my favorites. Please feel free to add anything I missed :)

Cory + Taylor https://www.guysanddollsphotography.com/blog/2016/12/cory-taylor I'm kind of obsessed with this couple's session. After two years of marriage they decided to get back in front of the camera and capture their love once again! The afternoon was full of laughter and stolen kisses between the two of them. Cory even (almost) snuck in a nap mid-session: he might have been a little too comfy laying down!! I put them back to work making them dance, twirl, and run a little bit. They were great sports though, and their session turned out amazing because of it!

Bailey + Jesse :: 10.1.16 https://www.guysanddollsphotography.com/blog/2016/12/bailey-jesse-10-1-16 Bailey and Jesse have a pretty unique love story that began during their childhood. Their parents were really good friends, which meant that Bailey and Jesse had plenty of playdates growing up. Fast forward 20 years and those play dates became something more. These two have such an amazing bond with each other, I truly believe that their souls were meant for each other.

Carisa + Travis https://www.guysanddollsphotography.com/blog/2016/11/carisa-travis Dan and I had so much fun with Travis and Carisa at the Main Farm! Their property was every photographer's dream with so many beautiful backdrops. And to top it off, we couldn't have scheduled this session on a better day either. We definitely captured their session during the peak of Fall color. One highlight from their session was visiting the tree they carved out. We loved capturing them at a spot that had so much sentimental value to them <3 Take a peek at their session and enjoy all the warm colors of Fall, the history of their farm, and the love these two share!! eng 004bweng 004bw eng 011eng 011 eng 013bweng 013bw eng 018efeng 018ef eng 022efeng 022ef eng 034efeng 034ef eng 053eng 053 eng 056eng 056 eng 058eng 058 eng 065eng 065 eng 068eng 068 eng 070eng 070 eng 074eng 074 eng 083efeng 083ef eng 088efeng 088ef eng 089eng 089 eng 090eng 090 eng 096eng 096 eng 100eng 100 eng 108bweng 108bw eng 114bweng 114bw

They definitely made my job easy with all their genuine smiles and laughs!  Take a peek at their awesome session!!

Nick + Dana :: 06.24.2016 https://www.guysanddollsphotography.com/blog/2016/8/nick-dana-06-24-2016 I am so excited to finally be blogging my wedding photos!! (Yay!) As a wedding photographer, I stress the importance of hiring a professional to capture your big day. This became very real for me as I was going through editing these pictures. I kept remembering little moments that happened and reliving the day photo by photo. Our wedding has come and gone, but Nick and I will cherish these photos for the rest of our lives. A HUGE thank you to Dan! He did such a wonderful job capturing everything.

June 24th, 2016 lived up to be everything Nick and I could of hoped for. The weather, dress, flowers, food, cake; it was all perfect! We are fortunate to have been able to put this all together and to experience it with the people we love most! Take a look at our day!! - Dana
