Stacy & Nate {Engaged}

It was grade school. He was 7. She was 8. They were probably more interested in Elmer’s Glitter Glue and PBJs than they were in each other at that point. How could you know that the boy who lives down the street would be the person you’d someday marry?

Sherree Lynn - I always say your photography can’t get any better with each wedding I look at, but with each one, it does! I look at your work, and can envision you and Roger taking photo’s for upscale magazines and movie stars on the red capet at the Academy Awards. These photos aren’t even of my own wedding, but I enjoy looking at each one as if it were because the photos are simply gorgeous. Your work just blows me away…it’s easy to see why you are booked so quickly each year. 🙂 Hugz to you both!

Laura Ranger - Well Karin and Roger…I couldn’t wait to see your first wedding on your new site and what can I say, just truly Beautifully Amazing!! The yellow and grey in this wedding is just striking! LOVE IT!

Jamie - I LOVE IT! I love the blog post and each of these fabulous photos! Jenny – you are gorgeous!!!! Jenny & Brice and their families put a lot of thought into their ceremony and reception. And, it shows. They did not miss a single detail. Well done, Karin & Roger! You captured the details, the fun, and most importantly, the love between Jenny & Brice.

Jenny Donnelly - So I had to go to a funeral yesterday and I knew the blog post was going up and I was so sad people were going to see it before me. And then after the funeral Brice and I had to run to the mall and while I was in a dressing room he pulled it up on his iphone. And then, I proceeded to stand in the middle of the aisle at Macy’s and look at every picture, and strain my eyes to read your post in teeny-tiny iphone size, and tear up while Brice was checking out for me. AMAZING!!! Karin and Roger, you are brilliant. I know you hear it all the time, but I mean it from the bottom of my heart. You captured the love and fun of our day just like I knew you would, which is why I didn’t cry when the day ended. I knew I could count on you. Thank you.

P.S. It will make my dad so proud to see you mentioned his leaf blower test! Thanks for that!

Ashlee Erlinger - Holy goosebumps!!!! So fantastic!

A gift for Kate

I guess our invite to The Royal Wedding got lost in the mail. I’m pretty disappointed too, because I had the perfect bridal shower gift for Kate.
