I don’t even know how to begin writing this one my friends. All I can say is, Julie & Malcolm’s Ausable Club wedding photos are magic. Having worked with these two on a pretty unique and amazing engagement shoot last fall sent me into this weekend with great expectations. Those expectations were beyond met. We arrived at The Ausable Club on Friday afternoon just in time to snag a couple shots of them at rainbow falls. After that we shot their rehearsal dinner which was just perfect. The big day was next and man was that fun. Big thanks to Alison and Erin of Christine Wheat Special Events Firm for holding down the coordination on this one as well as John Schuler of the Ausable Club for making our job a breeze. I had a blast shooting with Josh Rask and Maisie  of C+W and cannot wait to see their film. Alexandria’s Beauty Salon had quiet a beautiful bunch to beautify and they always do a fantastic job and of course Mr David Michael Schmidt of Renaissance Floral Design produced another stunner for us to capture.

I can’t thank Julie and Malcolm for having us. Working with you them since March of 2016 has been our pleasure. They are both an amazing couple and its been an honor capturing their love for each other. I’m so proud of all these images we captured for them and cannot thank them enough. Cheers to this awesome couple!! Love you guys!

Where we last left off..

June 2, 2017.

Pre wedding activities with bridal party included a quick trip to Rainbow Falls.

So pretty.

Welcome to the Ausable Club.

Seriously such a fun couple.

The chimneys never stopped on this chilly but beautiful weekend.

Views from above.

Practice makes perfect.

The bag piper was a surprise from Malcolm’s Mom, Katharine.

Custom cornhole boards. This was one of the best rehearsal dinners we’ve been part of.

Those fire pits got their use that night!

Morning of June 3rd, 2017..

Julie and company got ready in Silver Birches.

I love all the details they had!

Katie from Alexandria’s Beauty Salon doing her thang..

Alex(andria) herself!

The matching AC gear was fresh.

Josh (C+W) and I decided on this killer spot for Julie to get dressed..

That gown..

Beautiful flowers by Renaissance..

Love their bridesmaid dresses (& Nate)

My art director AKA Alex of Alexandria’s Beauty Salon pointed out this lovely spot.. Alex, you were right.

but it helps when you have a stunning bride like Julie.


Meanwhile in the mens house….

Some gifts Malcolm. Clearly he loved them!

Just don’t drink it before the ceremony 😉

Time for 1st look!

The obligatory spin around..

Dont these images just make you smile?

Back to that spot  for a couple b&g photos.

We headed back to the club for the remainder of our family photos and all that..

I couldnt get enough of Giant Mountain in the background.

Looking good, fellas..

One of my favorite bridal party shots yet..

love this one.

Sitting in front of David Michael Schmidt’s creations.

How about this spot to get married at?

Not a detail was overlooked and so well thought out..

Julie, the Mom’s and Matron of honor getting that veil on.

Love this one of Julie looking at her brother, Brian before heading down the aisle.

Pretty amazing how the sun peaked out just as she walked down the aisle. Things that make you go hmmm….

Shot’s like this are so classic of Big Joe. He’s got such a beautiful a way of capturing the overall feeling.. (if you’re looking at this on a smart phone get to a computer to appreciate it)

What a backdrop!!


Mr & Mrs..

I love when couples stop at the end of the aisle and do a little kiss.  Perfection!

Cocktail hour took place in front and on the porch.

And these two (plus us) headed off to another spot for a toast.

So. Freaking. Beautiful.

Love it.

The dining room. Love the moose head.

Clearly they loved what they saw.

Wonderful toasts..

Watch your head, Malcolm!!

Clearly these people partied!

And a night complete with a sparkler sendoff! Congrats to Julie and Malcolm!!! Thank you again!!!!
