ENGAGEMENT: Erik and Molly

Nunica, Michigan

I’ve known about Molly and Erik before I ever met them. It’s strange how the loss of a dear friend has brought into my life this cherished and wonderful couple — a couple that I had the privilege of capturing their love as we traipsed around the Nunica farm where Erik grew up with their somewhat famous dog, Wesley, in tow. (No, really, he’s the braces-wearing dog whose photo went viral.) I’m grateful this profession lets me roam on farms, mingle with pets, climb trees and be reminded of the power of love.

WEDDING: Jerry and Erica

Chicago, Illinois

The two met five years earlier at a birthday party but bumped into each other while Erica was walking her dog. Jerry found her on Facebook and fast forward to the weekend after Thanksgiving and the two were married and sharing their first dance to a Barry White tune (good choice, if I do say so myself.) I loved how the guests circled Erica in support as she danced alone to her late dad’s favorite country song. I loved how Erica’s nephew walked her down the aisle and I loved how Jerry’s laughter filled the room but he couldn’t hold back the tears while hearing his brother’s toast. Thank you, Erica and Jerry, for sharing your moments so openly with me.
