Anastasia and Maxwell got married September 16th in Ellsworth, Michigan. It was an usually warm day… I mean hot! 97 degrees, but these sweet people didn’t let it slow them down.
I arrived early afternoon and shortly after capturing the preparations, Max and Anastasia had a first look on the porch that reassured them both. (so lovely!)
We then took all the family formals and party photos…then just the two of them.
The signing of the Ketubah was next and as you can see, there was not a dry eye in that room.It was truly beautiful. Anastasia and Maxwell were then ready for the ceremony. We all saw how much Max loved Stacy in the tiniest of touch while he walked around here in the traditional circle. After songs, prayers, and the most romantic vows ever, they sealed it with the breaking of the glass and a kiss. The rest of the night was filled with toasts, challah, dinner, and dancing.
Max and Stacy, may your lives continue to intertwine and grow together in the coming years. Mazel tov!
“My day started as relaxed as I possibly could make it! It was crazy, but the best kind of crazy I have ever experienced. I had so much help from my friends and family that everything was very calm, cool, and collected except for my insides! I was so excited and nervous at the same time!
Getting ready for my wedding was such a memorable experience. When I went to the salon to get my hair done and I put on my flower crown, it hit me. I’m getting married TODAY.
Putting on my makeup while skyping with my best friend who couldn’t be there was so special. Then putting on my dress was the big moment I really felt like a bride. It was a dream come true.”
“I absolutely loved working with you and couldn’t imagine what a better photographer experience would be like. When we first met up for the engagement photos I was very nervous and did not know what to expect as far as our chemistry is concerned. But Max and I were both so relieved and knew this was going to be a wonderful thing. You made us feel so relaxed and by the end it felt like you were our good friend taking our pictures and not a pushy photographer that didn’t take the time to get to know us and didn’t care to. You made us feel like you cared about capturing our vibe. My memories that I have taking our engagement photos and our wedding photos are some of my most cherished memories of my whole wedding experience and just know that you made a huge impact on my day. Thank you!!!
My one suggestion for other brides to to try to relax and have fun as much as possible while taking photos. Sure, it’s awkward kissing your man while someone takes pictures. I get it! But remember that Tracy is so chill, down to earth, and has done this so many times that taking pictures of people kissing and being in tune with each other is her specialty. She knows how to capture that moment and that feeling, so let it go! It will be worth it in the end to have beautiful pictures that capture those moments forever.
