Annette and Tyler | MSU East Lansing MI Wedding Photographer

When Annette and Tyler look at each other, it’s more than a simple look.

It’s a loving gesture. An understanding. A way of communicating something that they can’t find with anyone else. It’s something that melts my heart each and every time that I see it. :)

These two wonderful, funny, loving people were married last month, and it was my great pleasure to be their wedding photographer. <3

This post contains just a few of my very favorites! Would you like to see more? You can view all the photographs (and purchase prints/files) here at the full gallery!

Meanwhile, Tyler waited patiently to be able to see his gorgeous bride. They decided to meet for an emotional first look in the gorgeous gardens of MSU…

This next shot was an experiment with a technique called the “Brenizer Method”. It didn’t turn out quite right haha (they are very hard to perfect), but I’m loving the wild effect in this shot!

I can’t say enough good things about Twiggies. They did a phenomenal job on the bouquet and decor!

The food at Eagle Eye is always AMAZING. :) Tyler and Annette opted to include a late-night ‘pizza snack’ later on as well, to fuel the dance floor. SUCH a great idea!

David Garrett did a fabulous job as DJ- I loved his ready smile as he lit up the party! :D He also surprised the bride and groom (who he also knows personally) with a special song…
