Jamie + Neil | The Day Before

Last January I decided to run a contest giving away my services  on one of my favorite wedding blogs, Rock 'n' Bride.  If you're not already a regular reader, trust me, you should be.  Besides the fact that the Rock 'n' Roll Bride just happens to have the same name as yours truly, her blog features some of the coolest, most unique, most out-of-the-box creative weddings you've ever seen.  If you've been known to enjoy a tattoo or two, RnR is definitely your kind of wedding blog. But back to the contest.  I got so many amazing entries it was really difficult for Kat and I to narrow it down to three finalists.  Then it was up to the public to vote in their favorite.   It was a really close contest, but in the end, Jamie & Neil won.  And I could not be happier that they did.   They got married about an hour outside of Grand Rapids, Michigan at a YMCA camp that Jamie attended as a little girl.   You have no idea how happy I was to get out of Florida for some cooler weather.  And even better, my regular second shooter, Courtney, was able to make the trip with me.  Courtney is awesome.  We got in on Friday and started the weekend with a casual engagement session.   Needless to say, I am absolutely in love with these photos.   Jamie & Neil rock.  Just wait until you see the wedding.
