I had a busy weekend of assignments for GLW magazine. I covered the Great Jazz for Great Kids fundraiser concert on Friday night, benefiting Caring About Kids, Inc. The concert was held at the Boarshead Theater in downtown Lansing.
Saturday morning, I was off to Saturn of Grand Ledge to cover a "woman's day" event, featuring local vendors and seminars to help "make your life easier". I met some nice ladies from Curves, Mary Kay, Dream Dinners, and Arbonne.
Saturday afternoon, I covered an event for the Michigan Moms publication. Super Hero & Princess Fantasy Fun night, sponsored by the Okemos Community Education. There were lots of families enjoying food, crafts, games & fun!
Saturday evening, I attended the Junior League "Night in New York" event at the Country Club of Lansing. It was a beautiful event, very elegantly decorated. Great food, music, silent suction, fashion show, and casino style games. Photo: Monica Harris from WFMK, and David Andrews from WILX at Country Club of Lansing.

This is a photo book I designed for Lisa and AJ's wedding. They were married in Dewitt, Mi. The ceremony and reception were at the Dewitt Banquet and Conference Center. I started by capturing the bride getting ready at the hotel nearby, and the groom and his family at the banquet center. The bridal party walked over from the hotel to the banquet center on the windy wedding day, which made for some fun photos! The bridesmaids wore beautiful chocolate brown, and carried red roses. The theme was carried through out the hall, with red rose center pieces and chocolate brown napkins. Bridal party and family photos were taken outside after the ceremony, despite the near freezing temperatures! Later during the reception, the fire alarm was set off in the hall. Everyone waited outside for the all clear to go back in, and the bride did the bouquet toss outside while everyone was waiting! Even the fire alarm couldn't stop this party!
This is the photo book I made for Rachel and Scott's wedding. They got married in East Lansing, at St. John Student Parish. It is a modern style church, with an open floor plan, and lots of light. The couple had a police escort to the reception at Eagle Eye Golf Club in Bath, with guests arriving by limos and buses. Some photos were taken outside at Eagle Eye before the reception, with more photos taken at sunset on the golf course. Eagle Eye is a beautiful venue, with a beautiful view of the golf course from the wrap around deck.
This is a Blurb photo book I created for Rachel & Robert's wedding. They had a beautiful wedding at People's Church in East Lansing, Mi. We took some photos outside at the church, in the garden, with the beautiful architecture. This was a fun wedding to photography because of the "cowboy" theme, with boots & hats! We visited the campus of MSU before the reception for photos in front of Sparty. The reception was held at the Kellogg Center.
