Planterra wedding: Katie & Ryan

12.20.18 - weddings by Kristen Taylor

Winter Weddings at Planterra are often among my favorite, both because the venue is so amazing and because that venue always seems to attract my favorite type of clients, and Katie and Ryan were no exception. They’re both super laid-back, absolutely hilarious, and really really nice. They really didn’t want to see one another before the ceremony, but when they realized not doing so would mean only having nighttime photos together they changed their mind. BUT, they were so against it being traditional, and in their opinion a cheesy, first look moment and they wanted to do it differently, and so they gave each other a high-five when they first saw each other, which they said was so very “them”. They both looked amazing on their wedding day, and Katie’s gown was absolute perfection. It had been very grey and cloudy for weeks leading up to their wedding, but the sun came out for their day which enabled us to take some beautiful backlit outdoor photos. Their bridal party was all super nice, and the kids in their wedding were adorable. I always love the floral decor at Planterra, which of course is not surprising. Bluewater Kings Band rocked the dance floor for rest of the night. And I must give kudos to the videography crew, Killer Creations, because they were awesome to work with. Congrats to this awesome and gorgeous couple!!!

Stoney creek engagement session: Leah & Kevin

12.20.18 - engagements by Stephanie

I had such an amazing time photographing Leah and Kevin’s engagement session. The couple is absolutely adorable, and the photo shoot was full of laughs!

We were lucky enough to have scheduled their session on the day of the first snowfall of winter. And, because Leah had chosen to be photographed at Stony Creek Metro Park, there was no shortage of beautiful scenery in which to capture this gorgeous duo.

Leah and Kevin were truly up for anything. They remained good humored despite me asking them to trek all over the park for the most perfect of backdrops. There even came a point when I asked them to sit on the ground for one of my favorite shots of the session. Despite the frigid temperatures, they never stopped smiling!

I absolutely cannot wait to photograph Leah and Kevin on their big day! Congratulations you two!

Northville engagement session: Becky & Peter

12.19.18 - engagements by Courtney

Becky and Peter’s Engagement session was the perfect fall adventure. We started out with cider and donuts at Parameters cider mill in Northville. It was the perfect weather for snuggling and a brisk walk along the river. These two looked totally adorable! I loved the added touches of personalized mugs and cozy blanket that Becky thought to bring.
For a little variety, they did a quick change and we headed downtown for a little more formal vibe. These two made my job delightful and I cannot wait until their wedding day. Congratulations Becky and Peter.

Detroit Engagement Session: Caitlin & Preston

12.12.18 - engagements by Stephanie

Caitlin and Preston’s engagement shoot was nothing short of amazing.

Caitlin had arranged for the couple’s session to take place at one of my favorite venues to photograph- The Detroit Institute of Arts! If you’ve never been, you MUST go!!! The architecture is reminiscent of a castle and serves as the perfect backdrop to a romantic photo shoot.

The two were so much fun, and the session was full of laughs. It was a bit muddy that day. Never one to let a bit of dirt get in my way, I happily laid on the ground in order to capture angles that showcased the true beauty of the couple and their chosen setting.

Despite my muddy appearance, Caitlin and Preston tolerated my many posing and location requests. I had blast with this duo, and am excited to capture what is sure to be a beautiful winter wedding!

Oakland Hills Country Club Wedding: Allison & Robert

12.5.18 - engagements by Courtney

Can I just tell you stunning everything from this wedding was? The Bride and Groom are so sweet, and all of the details were perfection. Allison had everything planned to a “T” and it all made for the perfect day.
The day started at the Oakland Hills Country Club with two rooms buzzing with excitement. Allison was so gorgeous in her gown and I absolutely loved her blue Manolo’s. With her grandma’s ring and her parents surrounding her, she was ready to say “I do". Robbie matched Alison’s beauty in handsomeness and wore a smile that never left his face.
Their ceremony was so elegant and personal at Kirk in the Hills. Mom’s lighting the unity candle, a friend beautifully singing, happiness in vows and a bubble and ribbon grand exit. It looked like a fairytale.
The rain held off just enough for us to get some fabulous photos outside and the next thing we knew the bride and groom were off to their reception in the coolest vintage car.
The flowers from Emerald City at the reception were nothing short of amazing. The invites from Tiffany & Co. we gorgeous, along with the cake by Holiday Market. The red, pale pink and white with gold leaves was incredible, with candles through it was very romantic. A delicious dinner, sweet and thoughtful toasts, a dessert bar for days and a packed dance floor completed their perfect day. Congrats to you both!
