I absolutely love my engagement photos, Michelle owner of Cameo Layne Photography did a fantastic job. She really captured our spirit and personalities in these photos & thats exactly what you want from your photographer! We took them at Hidden Lake Gardens, a botanical garden for Michigan State University set on several wooded acres & we had a blast, it was a very cool adventure. So I thought I would share them with all of you! Personally I think they are pretty badass :) but I'm biased!

I have a fun project that is surprisingly easy! I made them for my wedding but I thought they would be a great gift for the holidays or anytime! I was definitely a do it yourself kind of bride and it honestly pushed my creativity. Not only do you save a ton of money but you really get to put personal touches into your big day or gift! I love the wire hangers with names on them and here is my tutorial on how I made them so you can do it too!
12 gage floral wire
(I used about 2 rolls for 5 bridesmaids and a bride and groom one) Found at Michaels
can be bought just about anywhere, the cheapest I found them was Walmart & Meijer
I used the E600 craft glue and it worked really well, dried fast.
small drill bit or a screw
I used a small hook screw to make the hole to put the wire in (we don't have a drill) but a small drill bit would be much quicker.
Round bottle top
or similar item to help you shape the round letters and keep them consistent (ex b & d)
Step 1: Practice! There really isn't any doing over once you start the lettering in the wire, if you start un-doing the letting and re-doing, the wire gets kinked up and it won't ever look smooth. So practice, look up images of wedding hangers and find a lettering that you like and copy, you want you lettering to be consistent, for photos :-D
Step 2: Form you names leaving a little extra on the sides so you can center it on the hanger.
Step 3: Make the holes in the hanger.
Step 4: Center and clip your name, making sure to leave enough that fits into the holes.
Step 5: Put super glue into the holes of the hanger and insert the wire into the holes. Lay on a flat surface to dry, secure the wire into the holes for drying if necessary (I found a little bit of painters tape works to hold the wire if it moves on you)
Let dry over night to be safe and then enjoy your custom hangers!!!

I absolutely love this photo shoot from Lynda at Rebel Photography. By far my favorite mother son photo shoot that I have seen to date. These photos were taken by train tracks & it was the first time this little guy had ever seen a train! What a magical moment to catch on film! Not to mention the amazing editing Lynda does, that is what makes her images so unique! Her style in her own words " I love to have high contrast and kind of a warm/edgy look to my photos. I don't like to make my photos look as "natural" as possible like many photographers do; it's my way of showing my creativity through a lens." Seriously if you are in the Alberta area you should check her out, because you will end up with some spectacular images!
Tell me his little mohawk doesn't make you smile!
