Matt & Ashley Fall Bridal Session { Laura Elizabeths Photography, A West Michigan Photographer }

We got to shot this happy couples wedding back in May (they will be on the blog soon!) and unfortunately, like it happens SO often in Michigan in the Spring, it rained! Crazy busy summer for both us and the couple but we were finally able to get in a beautiful fall session to show off their love! Oh and their little girl?? Absolutely adorable!!!!

I am a horrible Blogger! { Laura Elizabeths Photography, A West Michigan Photographer }

Great title right! How many of you can relate to this? I take pictures, I am not a writer! I tend to just push this part of my business to the side! No one reads/looks at this right? WRONG! Blogging is probably the number one marketing tool that a business can have, and here I am just pushing it to the side.

What can I say, I’ve had a very busy year! Photography was booming last year and this year is looking to do the same. My hubby and I bought out first house last year {New House!} and then of course the holidays came crashing in taking up all of our time! {Thanksgiving} {Christmas Card} We got a kitten (seriously so adorable! Check out my Instagram if you want to see him! #lifewithharley) {HarleyBoy} And now the New Year is here and I am getting back in the business mindset!

Stay tuned to an overboard of blogs to catch you up on all of the AMAZING sessions I was able to be part of last year and a few already this year! Laura Elizabeths Photography is back and ready to take over #WestMichigan.

I am currently booking Weddings, Engagements, Seniors, Event and School events!

Can’t wait to hear from you!

Hiring Cheap? Smart or NOT WORTH IT? { Laura Elizabeths Photography, A West Michigan Photographer }

Everyone is out to save a little money now days, and who can blame them? We all work hard for our money, put long hours in and it still doesn’t seem to pay the bills! But then, that wonderful moment has happened in your life, you got engaged!

Now it’s time to start preparing for the best day of your life! Unfortunately, this is also when you will see A LOT of your hard earned money go out the window for different vendors that will help make your day perfect.

So how do you decide what to spend more money on for your big day and what you don’t really need to spend the big money on? I got married last July so I have a lot of extra tips for you that we will talk about in other posts, but for this post, I am really going to encourage you to make a commitment on investing in the photographer you pick to capture your day to help preserve your memories forever.

I stumbled across this great blog by Lauren, who let the money from her budget determine the photographer and now she completely regrets it! Take a look at the blog post here: http://theeverylastdetail.com/i-took-the-cheap-photographer-route/. There are parts of the blog that really make my heart so sad for her. And there are parts that I definitely can see where I struggled as well making the decision for my own wedding. I also hired cheap, I know I know, this blog is speaking to the choir here personally, and I definitely regret it…A lot of the most important images were not even taken and we can’t go back to redo them. It’s very sad really.

So all in all, let me just encourage you. Don’t skimp on the photographer or even the videographer. Invest in someone who knows their stuff, can show you a complete wedding that they have shot or videoed that is consistent throughout the whole wedding. Make sure you have a great connection with them since they really turn into your right hand man on your wedding day! And finally, don’t stress it, yes, it is a lot of money to spend but if you have heard all of the horror stories that I have, then you would know, just go with your heart, hire the photographer that knocks your socks off and you will have nothing to worry about on your big day or the days after.

A Christmas Giveaway ~ Featuring April from The Rustic Veil

***WINNER IS ASHLEY KAPP!*****

Happy Friday! How is everyone doing today! We got our tree up!!!! So excited! I’ll be sharing pictures on my Facebook page for you all to see! It was so fun decorating it this year with my husband (I had to let go of the reigns a couple times though! eeekks! I’m a little bit of a control freak!) and I love having all of the lights up!

Today we are featuring a family member of mine! April is the lady who pretty much made my wedding possible! She is so crafty and full of imagination! She made my fabric bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets, boutonnieres, and some of the signs, helped decorate and just made my dream day come true! If you are ever needing anyone to help design and decorate for a wedding or an event she is the one to ask! Oh and did I mention that she does hair! Yup! She’s amazing all around!

April has graciously donated a beautiful handmade sign that is great to have for Christmas and winter, especially if you live in Michigan. This is a local donation only. You must live in or around the Greenville/Sheridan area or 20 miles outside in order to win this gift! A little bit too heavy to ship!
