This is as adorable as it gets.

I'm so lucky to work with families and people like this.

Macy & Tanner Engaged https://www.loimijri.com/blog/2019/6/macy-tanner-engaged Macy and Tanner are such a fun couple. We had great weather (how we avoided the rain, I'm not entirely sure), and the blossoms were in full bloom!

We found a merry-go-round and played with the shutter speed for a bit and finished the night chatting over a beer. Again, I have the best clients.

Here are a few of my favorites. I hope you love these as much as I do!

Personalized Stemless Wine Cup from Groovy Guy Gifts Review https://www.loimijri.com/blog/2018/12/personalized-stemless-wine-cup-from-groovy-guy-gifts-review Many of the recent wedding receptions that I have photographed have included personalized stemless wine cups. I've always thought they were a cute, fun, and practical wedding party gift that attendants would continue to use and love.

When I was approached with the chance to review the Personalized Stemless Wine Cup from Groovy Guy Gifts, I jumped at the chance. Who wouldn't love one of these? It can be used for anything hot or cold... wine or coffee - two major lifelines of mine (mother to two and full time wedding and portrait photographer). This cup claimed to be sweat free - which is important when it comes to keeping my table tops ring free. I tested it out - the claim is reality. It kept my ice water cold for a few hours (I used ice water to test, because who can make one glass of wine last for a few hours ;) ... The font was pretty, which is important for weddings and I was able to pick both the cup and letter colors.

Overall, I loved this glass and would highly recommend it to any bride looking for a personalized gift for her bride tribe!
