When Executive Director Carol Furlong asked me to create a short presentation for a fundraising event, I was honored to be given the opportunity. They’re doing wonderful things there (sad, but wonderful and incredibly necessary things) and they deserve all the support we can give them.
The family made our annual trip to Frankenmuth yesterday, and in spite of the drizzle, it was a good day. I took along a DSLR intending to shoot some stills, but then I saw these ladies at River Place and that changed the game plan. (Not a big fan of hand-held DSLR, though, and would have loved to have had a monopod along!)
What a great a couple and a great family. This wedding was all about love and a good time, and we’re just happy to have been a part of it. Fiesty, independent and joyous are just a few of the words we can use to describe LeAnne and Jesse, and we’re wishing them the best of everything on their wonderful journey. Great jobs, too, by photog Candice Lamarand and Scott from Memory Maker DJ’s for keeping the party going.
Joslyn and Greg were a wonderful couple and June 23rd was a wonderful day for their wedding. They had a way cool, lively crowd, and the Lightshine Films crew had a blast. Dave from Picture Me Perfect was on photog duty, and DJ Kutz kept the Motown groove rolling all night. Good times.
I’ve known Trip for a while now, and I can say without reservation that he’s a heck of a guy. After meeting Heather, I can also say without reservation that he’s a heck of a lucky guy. Heather and Trip were married in Dearborn, MI on February 18, 2012. Kathryn Gibson shot some wonderful photos and Brett Padgett was the guy spinning the tunes. Beautiful wedding. Beautiful bride. Beautiful family. I feel truly blessed to have been a part of it.
My friends Logan and Dorothea, world travelers to be sure, were married in New York in July of 2010. Esther and I made the trip, but many of their friends couldn’t, so they had a second wedding last summer in Siegen, Germany. We made that trip, too, and what a trip it was! We went as guests, with no intention of filming the wedding. But, me being me, and having a DSLR in hand for vacation stills, I couldn’t stop myself!
Few things make my smile wider or put more of a spring in my step than getting that email from a couple letting me know how happy they are with they’re wedding film. Janessa and Brad were a great couple to work with, and they’re July wedding gave me yet another opportunity to spend some time with photographer extraordinaire Marco Antonio. Also on hand were the guys from Music Box Productions spinning tunes all night long at The Captains Club in Grand Blanc.
Talk about a sweet weekend! From our first conversation, I knew working with Alicia and Jack was going to be a pleasure. The opportunity to spend the weekend at the Boyne Mountain resort where they were getting married didn’t hurt, either! Meeting and working with photog Michelle Binge from Paris Productions was the icing on the cake.
Fall Prey was a great band to work with. Not only are they extremely talented, but they brought a ton of energy to this project and made it a pleasure to produce and direct. “Disco” is a driving rock song with a positive message, encouraging people to focus on the important things in life and to watch out for the pitfalls that can sidetrack us.
