On this cold, windy and wet day in October, the weather was just not cooperating for Jennifer & Jimmy’s planned outdoor wedding.  The ceremony had to be moved inside, the formals at Conneaut Lake Park had to be cancelled, but that didn’t matter.  Things happen that are beyond our control, especially the weather – you never know what it’s going to do.  Fortunately, that’s not what the day is about!  Jennifer & Jimmy totally get that.   They were so go with the flow and excited that they were getting married – nothing else in the world made a difference! Their friends were there, their family was there and despite the change of plans – everything was absolutely gorgeous and went as smooth as ever.  As the the sun was about to set…the weather calmed down and we ran outside. I think we spent less than ten minutes out there, but they are some of my favorite images from the year. The silhouette below of Jennifer throwing her hand in the air (and she said something like “yay! we’re married!”) was not planned, that was a real celebration and so was the party that followed. So glad to have been there to capture it! 🙂

Much more in the video!

Jennifer & Jimmy – thank you, again, for allowing us to capture your day!  It was truly a pleasure!

Melissa & Ryan were married on one very rainy (but very lucky, as they say) day in June.  Because of the rain, The Lake Club’s beautiful view was left mostly wet and muddy.  A Day After session (on a particularly gorgeous day) definitely made up for the images we were just unable to get on their wedding day, without getting the bride and groom dirty and damp.

Check out some of the gorgeousness below…

It’s time to celebrate, again, all the amazing couples I have had the pleasure of working with over the past year.  I think my couples rock and I know their friends and family agree.  The contest includes all couples who were not included in last year’s contest.   To vote for your favorite couple, simply go to the Couples That Rock Contest II gallery and click on their photo.  Click on “like”.  You can vote for as many couples as you’d like.  Voting is not based on the best image – it is the couple that you think rocks the most!  Comments aren’t necessary, but if you want to leave some love for your friends, go right ahead.    Please note, you must first “like” MMGPhotography in order to see the comment or like buttons on the image.

Now for the couples – the rules are – there are no rules.  Do whatever you’d like to get votes.  Tag yourself, tag your friends (doesn’t matter that they’re not in the picture).  You can solicit votes however you want.  Voting will start today and will end at midnight on the 21st, when I return from my break!  The winner will be the couple with the most “likes” on their image.   The grand prize winner will be announced on Monday, the 22nd.  The winning couple will receive a $200 print/product credit!

Now the legal stuff:  The $200 credit holds no cash value.  Credit can be used for images from either your engagement, wedding or day after session, but cannot be applied towards your package, outstanding balance or previous purchases.
