Amanda’s Comments:  Michael and Michelle were a delightful couple to work with.  They arrived for rehearsal with quite the crew.  Almost Brady Bunch style w/ twin girls, and 3 boys.  What a photographers dream!  All the different emotions of the day were fun to capture and you’ll enjoy some of the candids we shot of the little ones.

Towards the end of the reception I heard Michelle tearfully thanking Michael with a heart overflowing with joy saying, “You are so amazing!  The kids love you so much and you are such and amazing father!”  Those are the comments we love to hear…

Our best wishes to this great family on their wedding day.  Thanks for coming to Bluff Mountain.

  • Michelle Tarpley - These pictures are amazing! I could not have asked for a better experience than what we had. It had to be very difficult working with 5 children all under the age of 7! But you’ve done beautifully!

  • Chantel - These are some of the most beatiful pictures that i have seen. it helps that the photography had such sweet and beautiful subjects.
