Amanda & Mark // Ann Arbor Wedding Photographer

Every wedding blog post is a small victory for me. Editing everything myself is a full time job yet thats really only like 30% of what I actually do. I made a commitment to blogging every wedding this year and I have accomplished just that. It feels good and it makes me really happy to be able to share this with everyone regardless of all the work involved.

Amanda and Mark were so laid back, we have been so lucky to get really easy going couples. No bridezilla’s for the Gaupers :) I consider it a gift from God and I am super thankful for that. It’s wonderful to work for people who have the ability to just let the day flow and who are able to enjoy themselves.

When she first showed me her dress I was, to say the least, thrilled. I’ve shot the same type of dress so many times that having something different is just a huge thrill to me. It even had REAL buttons! haha :) Her dress was stunning on a hanger and stunning on her. Beautiful all around. I took these shots at the hotel we were staying at for the wedding. It’s our favorite in Ann Arbor, Webers Inn .

…and really, what is there left to say about me and rings. I’m crazy for them and that will never stop. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, someone please offer me a job where I get to photograph jewelry ALL DAY LONG. :) Thank you. 
I know, I know, a lot of ring shots for a blog…but I’ve got a problem and I’m just nuts about this one. 
Umm…tallest guy ever? I often wonder what life is like as a very tall person. I imagine the whole world is different from up there. From personal experience, I can say that the world is a little frustrating down here at 5’4. I feel like I’m missing out on a lot of things that I just can’t see. 
Ok so if Ryan was writing this blog post I am sure he would sound super excited and say cool things about these shots. I, however, am 100% nerd and don’t like, watch or really care much for sports in general. Eep! I just felt a ton of hate vibes come my way I’m sure, haha. There’s nothing wrong with sports, I just never got into it. I embraced art and nerd things instead. With that said, I guess it’s pretty cool they were able to get inside and do these photos. I think the photos are awesome and sports fans would probably be super pumped about this. :) Ryan was pretty happy and excited and well, I’m happy for him. haha
I LOVE that I have not had a bride this year tell me no about anything I wanted to do with them. Laying down in the dress, no problem! Oh, and fishtail braid – please become super popular. I love it. 
The back of that dress, phenomenal! 
When we got to our location it was starting to rain so we literally made the majority of the bride and groom session happen in about 15 minutes before it started POURING. Amanda and Mark were seriously troopers. It’s not as fun to move fast and get it done, but it gets done. They had a great attitude about everything and the images prove that. If you let things get to you, it shows in photos. 
So after a stop for drinks, all the guys were a lot easier to work with… :) The rain had nearly stopped at this point as well which was SO great! 
Oh I just adore the image on the left. So cute!
McDonalds Cheeseburgers? 
Ummm hands down favorite reception image of the night. hahah!
