Jackson MI's Brightwalls Mural Festival

So much color, life, and excitement surrounding our city these past five days! It has been incredible to watch the process of each artist’s creation unfold on our city’s walls! This, by far, is my favorite thing that has ever happened here in Jackson, MI. I feel so grateful for the Jackson Young Professionals and all of the sponsors who worked so hard to make this event happen. My family has enjoyed this event so much and will continue to enjoy these murals for years to come!

Tomorrow the murals will all be completed but here are some of my favorite images capturing them in the making.

Circus Birthday Sneak Peek

This past weekend I photographed the most spectacular circus birthday party. There were so many adorable details I'll have to share a separate post.  This little cutie just turned one and I hope you love this little preview of how he enjoyed his day. Can't wait to share more soon! 

Happy Birthday Leo!

Family, balloons, cake, ice cream, confetti- Celebrating Leo's one year birthday was a blast! He enjoyed playing with the balloons, his cousins, and loved his cake so much he gave it a hug! He is one happy baby and it was so fun to watch him and his big brother enjoy the party. Happy birthday little buddy! 

Anna's Horse Show 2017

A couple of years back I had the honor of taking pictures for Anna and her horse Tinkerbell and it was so much fun! Since then she has continued to ride and has grown into such a beautiful young lady. This past weekend she took her horse Max to an open competition and it was so beautiful to see her riding so gracefully with him. Anna I'm so proud of you! You are a true sweetheart!  Enjoy your summer and I hope to bring our boys out to see you ride again soon! 

They grow so fast! Hard to believe these pictures from her first photo shoot were just two years ago!

Alex and Alexandra's Wedding Day

Spring peaked just in time for Alex and Alexandra's beautiful Michigan wedding! These two have traveled from Michigan to Texas and back again to be with each other and could not wait for this amazing day to come! 

While an intimate group of friends and family gathered in the sanctuary, Alexandra's father waited to see her in her wedding dress. His expression was priceless!

After a beautiful ceremony, family hugs, and pictures we headed to downtown Jackson for pictures of just the two of them.

There were so many beautiful touches to their day including the beautiful bouquets that Alexandra made with a bracelet in memory of her brother.

Following pictures they were joined by their family and friends to celebrate with dinner and dessert (Complete with traditional Flan!) at The Grand River Brewery.

Alex and Alexandra, your day was so beautiful! I am so glad you two have found your soul mate (Tu media naranja)! Congratulations and God bless your beautiful life together!

Brennan & Lisa's Jackson MI Wedding

Heartfelt embraces, love stories, and laughter! Lisa & Brennan's day had it all! Their day was simply beautiful and such an honor to be a part of!

We arrived just in time to see Lisa all teary eyed as she sat down to read her love letter from Brennan and note from her second love...her cat (A.K.A. "Allie Cat"). Perfect timing just before makeup! Though, not even makeup could keep the tears at bay throughout the day for this sweet bride. All day long Brennan was so happy that he could not stop smiling! 

Father Jim Shaver, knowing Brennan and Lisa well, led such a beautiful ceremony full of encouragement and blessing.  After the ceremony, family and friends enjoyed cocktail hour at the Jackson Country Club, while the bridal party celebrated together on the party bus on their way to Art 634, Jackson's historic train station, & The Grand River Memorial City Park for some Jackson skyline shots. Brennan's brother (Best Man) and friends kept things pretty alive with lots of jokes and even a prank (See pictures below)! 

DJ Matthew Wade kept everyone on their toes with an incredibly fun kissing couples game and impressive and hilarious reading of Brennan and Lisa's versions of their love story! After a spectacular dinner (which included delicious homemade Galumpkis made that morning by the Father of the Groom!) and dancing was under way we headed out on the golf course for some sunset pictures! 

It was a true pleasure to be a part of this wedding. Everyone was so kind and thoughtful and we got to serve alongside a such spectacular professionals! I want to give a huge thank you to my assistant photographer Erica. You are AMAZING and a joy to work with! And big thank you to both Jenna and Spencer of Dream Real Video. You guys were so wonderful to work with! You can check out their beautiful video of Brennan and Lisa's day here! And last but not least-Major props to DJ Matthew Wade & your assistant Caleb for making the night so incredibly fun! You truly blessed us all with a wonderful night! I look forward to working with all of you again in the future! 

Congratulations Brennan & Lisa! It's been so fun getting to know the two of you! Thank you for choosing me to capture your beautiful love story! ~Lindsay

Little T's birthday was loads of fun! He was in the best of spirits and enjoyed the fun room filled with balloons, his first bite of cake, opening presents, and a shower of confetti with his family!

The Color Run!

I have always wanted to be a part of something so colorful and fun!  It was a little hard to decide wither I would run in "The Happiest 5k On The Planet" or take pictures of all those lovely colors on my happy friends! But I am so glad I got to experience it first hand with these lovely ladies!  Jen, Jeanette, and Kristen thank you for getting this together! Paula thank you for coming out to cheer us on! And a huge thanks to my sweet husband, who took pictures for all of us! You truly captured the fun Babe!
