…Um, okay, so I’m super excited to tell you about a small event that I had the wonderful luck to shoot this spring.  Do you watch HGTV as much as I do?  If you do (and really, who doesn’t?), then you’ll most certainly recognize the name Cari Cucksey from the show Cash and Cari.  Yes, I met her.  And her “entourage” :)…

That’s Cari and her handsome-as-ever new hubby.  Jealous much?  I know!

So, here’s how it happened: Jason and I went shopping on a Saturday morning.  Actually, Jason wanted to go to Cabela’s and I just tagged along.  There are clothes to be found and shoes to be tried on in any store, anywhere, girls!  While out, I had a photo shoot cancel due to inclement weather, so naturally, I asked Jason if he would take me to Northville for…ahem…more shopping.  He was game (pun intended), so northward bound were we!  I had actually been wanting to check out the RePurpose store in Northville (from the show) for a while, and this was a perfect opportunity!

Quick montage of events: Visited the RePurpose store, made a purchase, spoke to the guy at the counter who encouraged us to visit their warehouse.  Had lunch in Northville and stopped by the warehouse, which was on the way home, afterall.  Met Natalie and Christy – more employees who also happened to be bridesmaids for the upcoming nuptials – and the rest is history!

I was hired to shoot photos at the couple’s wedding shower, which was a garden party/tea luncheon where guests were asked to dress in hats and bow ties.  It was an incredibly fun and cute theme, and I was so shocked that everyone played along! (Because my family? Wouldn’t touch that with a ten foot pole!)

I met my Michigan “family” that day, and I hope to see lots more of them in the future!  Here’s a short video so that you can witness the fabulousness for yourself!  Enjoy!


  1. Beautiful! Can’t wait to see the wedding photos.
