We are Katie and Joe Fasel - pronounced "Fossil" - and yes, that's where we got our name from! We love what we do, and we love getting to do it together. Telling your story is our passion, and the only way to do that is to get to know one another. So let's do that! Here are just a few fun facts about us:
I'm the "Type A" - the list maker, the pre-planner, the organizer and the worrier.
I'm a cat mom and love my two orange tabby cats like crazy. There are more pictures of these two cats on my phone than most people take in their child's lifetime.
I'm a die-hard "Walking Dead" fan. Don't even get me started on this...I can talk your ear off, and am fully prepared for a zombie apocalypse, as long as Rick and Daryl are by my side.
I'm a runner...sometimes. I once ran a marathon, and jokingly say that I haven't run 26 miles total since then. But I do try to get back into it every now and then. Running is no joke!
I love to dance, sing, and just have a good time. Current list of favs include "Shake it Off," "Uptown Funk," and "Shut Up and Dance With Me." I'm also currently OBSESSED with Justin Timberlake's new song "Can't Stop the Feeling." If these songs are playing at your wedding, there's a good chance you will find me dancing behind my camera.
I'm the "Type B" - the "fly by the seat of my pants" type, whatever happens, happens, type.
I used to have long hair and an eyebrow ring...like ponytail long hair. I'm a heavy metal rocker at heart.
I have a degree in film and video, as well as a degree in photo-journalism. I'm the artsy eye, and I'm always looking for that unique angle to any shot.
I love watching almost any TV show, especially crime and suspense-type shows. And for the record, I watched "Walking Dead" first...Katie was a skeptic, to put it mildly.
I, too, love to dance at every wedding. Mostly in front of Katie's camera, and mostly because she's embarrassed of my slick dance moves.
About Both of Us!
We met in our film classes at GVSU, connected over a love of the show "ER," and really knew that this was forever after spending 6 months apart for a college internship.
We got married in October of 2008, on our five year dating anniversary. That wasn't planned, we wanted a fall wedding, and it just happened to work out!
We lived in New York City for nearly 5 years and loved it! The sights, the history, the food, and the amazing friends we made while we were there are just a few of our favorite things. We try to get back whenever we can, but it's not often enough. Oh, and did we mention the food?!
We love to travel. Our favorite types of vacations are road trips, stopping to take a hike, getting off the beaten path, soaking in scenery and taking a gazillion pictures. We got engaged on a road trip from L.A. to San Francisco, and are hoping to make that road trip farther north some day!
We spend our summers working, obviously. But on our [very] rare weekends off, we love hosting barbecues, going camping, canoeing, and just enjoying Pure Michigan.
