OMG! Carrie and Jeff are two totally amazing people. From Carrie’s super contagious smile to Jeff’s infectious laugh we couldn’t stop giggling throughout this amazing engagement shoot on a rainy sunday afternoon. We headed to Eastern Market to take some shots knowing we would have some cover from the rain under the pavilions. I absolutely CAN NOT wait until their wedding next fall. It was be so beautiful.


Brandon and I have had a very busy year. I started a new day job, we moved, got married, and a did lot of traveling. I feel like I–we’ve, forgotten about the blog. What it means to us, and what we wanted to do with it besides show awesome weddings and family shoots. It was a place where you could get to know us: to understand who we, lovella, truly are. Not just a name, but two people. A husband and a wife. Two best friends together in this world, camera in hand. Two people who laugh until they cry… then laugh more. I’m sick of being scared about not writing the politically correct thing on here or run-on sentences, or misspelling. We have flaws, and I’m terrible with grammar and spelling. This you may already know if you’re a close friend. So, I’m writing. Writing to say Hi, and this is just the beginning.

-Edit: Brandon – fixed some spelling and grammar.:)

I love you guys. Thank you for making me cry from this post.


James and Megan planned an awesome DIY wedding at the Indian Springs Metropark Environmental Discovery Center in White Lake, Michigan. They included a ton of board game ideas in their decorating and it turned out great! The park has amazing views in every direction and the reception location has beautiful architecture and lots of natural light. It’s a wedding photographer’s dream!
