Winter Wedding (Northville, Michigan, Wedding Photographer

Hi Everyone! So, it is officially the LAST day of February, wow ! Where does the time go?
I have been crazy busy with wedding clients, boudoir sessions, models and so much more. I have a workshop coming up in Late May. Oh, and did I mention that I am LOVING it? YEP, I am. ;)

Anyhow- On Feb 13th Renee and Jeremy B. were married in SE, Michigan. They had a beautiful Winter Wedding. It was a total delight to work with such a FUN group. I adored this group and their families and hope to work with them in the future for sure!!!!

Tressie Davis assisted me throughout the day- I just love her. Not only is she great company but she has tons of creative vision so we are a great team. Here are a just a few dozen shots from our Winter Wedding (from start to finish!) I wish I could share them all... but there are just TOO many. Enjoy !

And here are Tressie and I in action (me on the left, her on the right).

Thanks a ton for stopping by everyone! Stay tuned for posts from a very fun upcoming project :)

80's Fashion Fun & A Wedding Teaser !!! (Northville, Michigan Wedding Photographer)

Last Saturday I worked with a beautiful couple on their Winter Wedding Day. Here is a little "teaser" ... there will be so much more to come over the next couple of weeks.

And yesterday I worked with a very fun model, Jackie who hired me to take some artistic & fun 80's themed shots for her portfolio. She brought roller skates, neon accessories and the perfect leather jacket. We had lots of fun. Check her out:

Thanks for driving 3 hours (each way!) to work with me- you braved the cold weather verrrry well, Jackie! hehehehe!!! It was a delight working with you.

Oh, and you should all check out her radio show on Saturday + Sundays at WGRD 97.9- and become a Fan of hers on Facebook. She is a very beautiful and cool person to know. :)

I just wanted to take a minute and let you all know that I am selling one of my camera bodies: the Canon EOS Rebel XTi. It's in really great condition. Reason I am selling is because I upgraded. It is a terrific, easy to use camera for those starting out in the digital world- photographers or parents!!! It also serves as an affordable +reliable back up camera.

Here is what you get:
Canon EOS Rebel XTi Body
Canon 18-55mm EFS Lens
Battery Wall Charger
Canon Neck Strap
Original packaging w/ user manuel, cds, and other documentation
Originally paid about $900. Asking $400 plus shipping.

The camera was purchased in 08/07- so it is 2.5 years old... It was used as my primary camera for 1.5 year and as a rare backup to my Canon 50D for 1 year. Email me if you want it or know someone who may! jenlynnalder@aol.com

On another note: I have been crazy busy with Online Editing Lessons this winter and loving it. I am currently working with 5 students and am welcoming more.
