WEDDING: JEFF + ANNA | LANSING, MI OCTOBER 3, 200

It was like Christmas.  I have waited for Jeff and Anna's wedding for almost a year - and yesterday, I was as excited for a couple as I can remember being.  I adore all of the wonderful couples I get to work with, and Jeff and Anna are no exception.  But as they've become friends of mine, I've grown ever more excited to share in their wonderful wedding day.  There's something truly special about these two.  Maybe it's that they've been together for so long.  Maybe it's that Anna set it up so that Jeff would ask her to Jr. Prom without him knowing he was being set up all along.  Maybe it's that she wore a necklace on her wedding day that she wore to that Jr. Prom, and to their Sr. Prom, and for many important events in their life together.  It's all of those things are more.

Here's just a little peak into their incredible day.

There are so many reasons I so love it when our clients decide to do a "first look," or see each other before the ceremony.  In addition to lending itself to wonderful, intimate photographs - it truly is a special moment for a couple.  It's a moment alone - a moment without the chaos, the crowd, without anyone else.  It's a moment when a couple can simply be together in the midst of a celebration of their life together.  Even if just for a moment, it's such a blessing to a couple to be able to stop and breathe together.
