Man Crush Monday: #MCM

Hey everybody!

I know we talk a lot about how gorgeous our Benny Brides are, but why can't our grooms get any love? Today's post is dedicated to all the grooms out there... we've got some great ones!

First up, here's Kurt. I've been able to spend a lot of time with Kurt lately and he's just a great, fun dude. He's a chef, which I obviously love... and knows good food! He's got an 11-month-old boy, Curren, and told me he's "what it's all about." I love a good Dad!

Ben is the newest addition to the Dad's club; he and Jamie just had sweet Millie on February 23rd. He's definitely going to be a great dad!

A true manly man, Taylor is a sexy dude, super adventurous, and a great dancer (obviously I know this from photographing his reception).

Tiago is Brazillian.  Enough said.

Carter should probably be first on my list. I've got him on repeat on my iTunes (check him out here)... he is an amazingly talented musician. He's also humble (my favorite quality in any person) and sincere. He makes you feel like the most important person in the room.

What I love about Andrew is how chill and cool he is. That, and how much he loves Andrea. Oh, and did I mention he's like a super bio-chemical engineering genius?!

Matt is just a sweet, sweet guy. I haven't shot their wedding yet, but the seeing him before he proposed was just about the sweetest thing I've ever seen.  Oh, and I'm a bit jealous of that hair.

My dude Josh. He's another one of those make-you-feel-important types of guys. He's always in a good mood (seriously!) and laughs at all my jokes... even the ones that aren't very funny.  He and Chelsey welcomed Beckham at the end of January, and Josh is already a nurturing dad.

Great hair, great style, always has a smile on his face... Mark is a former Razorback football player (go Hogs!), and is probably used to being the coolest guy in the room, but you'd never know it when you talk to him. Another humble, but super talented, groom.

Doug married Amy on New Year's (just one reason he's so smart).

Matt met Ashley on a cruise, and then married her (not on the cruise... haha!). He's got style, taste, and can brew his own beer. C'mon!

Trent is a fellow photographer with loads of talent, a great personality, and has serious style (Burberry, anyone?!)

Matt, besides his dashing good looks, is also a professional fisherman.  As in... he gets PAID... to FISH. Does it get better?

Mike is our resident bad-boy. Tattoos and an attitude to say whatever he is thinking, Mike is a fun guy to be around. He picked up his now-wife while driving in the car next to her on a road trip. Gutsy, but that's Mike.

Finally, we've got Rob. Construction worker turned destination wedding photographer, you can't keep up with his adventures. A man good with his hands and an artful eye is definitely a catch (pun intended, as you see the pic below).

This was such a fun blog post to write.  I have so many others over the past 15 years, so I might just have to do this again!

Talk to you soon,

Alaska Proposal; The Time I Almost Blew It.

Hey everybody! Did you ever know something 100% in your heart, but you almost screw it up?  So goes the story of my proposal to Tyler. ...
