I can't tell you how much I adore these two gals. Maddi + Lauren contacted me last year about doing their wedding and I was immediately charmed by their love of dogs, devotion to one another and witty sense of humor. During their e-session the conversation was easy and it truly felt like I'd known them so much longer than just a few minutes. When the big day finally rolled around in August Heidi and I were already unbelievably stoked to be shooting in Northern Michigan; if you've never been the view in Traverse City is absolutely amazing. We literally had the coveted trifecta for every photographer; a gorgeous landscape, ridiculously beautiful couple, and amazing light. We probably squealed a thousand times that day as we photographed the tiny, thoughtful details, intimate ceremony, and glowy sunset portraits. Everything, and I mean this, everything had been carefully considered, styled and crafted for their wedding. Though they had no idea what the other had chosen even their bridal gowns complemented on another. I'm telling you, it was a dream. During the first look I teared up right along with them, and then again at the ceremony and then again during the first dance, okay so pretty much the entire day. I'm a sap I can't help it! Maddi + Lauren, I can't tell you how special it was to be there and document this time in your lives. You are both so special to me, and I wish you a lifetime of happiness and love together. Congratulations, Mrs. + Mrs. Carlson!
