Mr. & Mrs. Ruberg

I've been so excited to post these since I took them a few weeks ago! Katie & Dan are such a wonderful couple and it was so fun to see them finally tie the knot! Their ceremony was so beautiful and their reception location was really unique! They had the reception at the Colonial Clock Building in Zeeland, MI, which I would completely recommend to any West Michigan bride! It was an old clock factory that was revamped into a banquet facility. So cool. I probably took wayyy too many pictures, so it was hard to choose some favorites. Hopefully you enjoy this glimpse into their special day!

How many men does it take to tie Dan's bowtie??

Dan & his siblings were too funny...

in front of the camera??

It's not often you find me in front of the camera... because I LOVE being behind the camera, of course! However, when it comes to family portraits, it would difficult to be in front of AND behind the camera. With the growing family, we knew our parents would LOVE to have a full family shot as grandparents... and having me as the photographer would not cut it. So last Christmas, we purchased a gift certificate from Melany Hallgren for a family portrait session! And this past Sunday, we finally all got together to make it happen. It was a beautiful day and the kids did great with all the pictures! Now, it may be a photographer faux pas to promote other photographers, but I have no shame - it's all about networking right? Melany is a fellow Detroit Wedding and Portrait photographer. Check her out sometime! But first, check out how good we look... :)

I love all the leaves, don't you?? Happy Tuesday!!

coming soon... mr. & mrs. ruberg!!

I spent this past friday in Zeeland, MI celebrating the union of two very special friends. I've been waiting for this wedding ever since Katie called me during Christmas break last year announcing that Dan had finally asked her to marry him! I knew after their engagement session that their wedding would be sooo fun to shoot. It was true - it was a joy to be apart of the day :). I haven't had a chance to sit down and go through many pictures, yet (balancing school, work, a social life and freelance jobs is hard!), but here is one to hold you over!
