Ann Arbor engagement session: Jordan & Josh

11.14.19 - engagements by Stephanie

The pair chose the Law Quad at University of Michigan to hold their shoot, and the setting couldn’t have been more perfect. The gorgeous masonry, stunning archways, and picturesque courtyard made for a beautiful backdrop to their engagement photos.

And, two showed up dressed too impressed. Jordan’s stunning pink dress, and Josh’s suit coat and jeans ensured the couple looked perfectly coiffed in their images. They even brought a second round of outfits that were suited to less formal photos, rounding out a perfect portfolio of pictures!

Unbeknownst to us, it was homecoming weekend, making traffic in downtown Ann Arbor tough to navigate, and parking even more difficult. However, the couple took these hardships in stride, and their positive and upbeat attitude made them even more likable and sweet! The two are naturals in front of the camera, and the love they have for one another truly shined through to their images.

I am so excited for their wedding day next year, and can’t wait to get them in front of my camera again!

stoney creek engagement session: Kayla & Joseph

11.14.19 - engagements by Kristin G.

I loved getting to know Kayla and Joe as we walked around Stony Creek Metropark during their engagement session. The weather had been iffy at best that week, but we lucked out and landed with a beautiful afternoon filled with autumn color. The best part about these two is how Joe’s humor lights up Kayla’s face and we talked and laughed throughout the session. As you know, I LOVE when my couples bring their pup and this sweet babe was no exception! Talking to the two of them and feeling their laid back vibe makes me super excited to shoot their wedding this summer.

A big congrats to this sweet couple!

St. john's banquet & conference center wedding: Summer & Michael

11.6.19 - weddings by Stephanie

I have been anticipating Summer and Mike’s wedding day for months- ever since their amazing engagement session in May. The pair is extremely sweet and photogenic- and having beautiful images to remember their day is immensely important to them. (My dream clients!)

Their event couldn’t have been more perfect. Not only did the entire bridal party look smashing, but they were truly the sweetest group I have ever worked with! We had a few hiccups with the timeline - including some unexpected rain - but the bridal party didn’t miss a beat, and were so supportive, helpful and attentive to the bride!

Summer is absolutely gorgeous, and looked STUNNING in her gown. She has fantastic taste, and everything- from her jewelry to her shoes - were unique and beautiful. And, not to be outdone, Mike looked positively debonair in his formal tux with a white jacket. (One of my favorites this year!)

Surrounded by their family and friends, the couple said their vows and held their reception at the lovely St. John's Banquet & Conference Center. Their decor was so elegant, and the cake by Sweet Dreams was the largest and most intricate of any I’ve ever seen!

We managed to squeeze in a few shots of Summer and Mike with the antique Rolls Royce they had brought in specifically for that day- despite a torrential downpour- and finished the night with some amazing moves on the dance floor!

I am so happy for these two, and know life has so many good things in store for them.

Congratulations Summer and Mike!

Grosse Pointe Wedding: Sarah & David

11.6.19 - weddings by Kristen Taylor

I LOVE LOVE LOVE when I'm contacted to shoot the wedding of a sister of a previous client because it means they fully trust me, which makes such a huge difference. And when Sarah contacted me I was extra excited because her family is SO incredibly nice, hilarious, and awesome. The day was a bit of a deja vu because she looks so much like her sister, she got ready in their same childhood house, and held their reception at the same beautiful venue, Lochmoor Country Club. Also like her sister Sarah's wedding style was impeccable, she was totally awesome to work with, and she married an awesome guy. This family has it GOING ON!

Sarah and David's ceremony at St. Paul on the Lake was lovely, and they got lucky with perfectly amazing weather. It was a joy to photograph them and their bridal party outside of the church, along the water in Grosse Pointe, and at their country club. Their toasts before dinner make me crack up, and it was undeniable how gorgeous their reception room looked. The champagne and blush decor by Bellisario Florist was amazing, their cake by Elegance in Sugar was simply elegant, their band, Your Generation, kept the dance floor packed, and it's always awesome working alongside Lee Thomas Films Videography.

Congratulations to this awesome couple, I'm so happy for this entire family!

Meadow Brook hall wedding: Leah & Kevin

11.6.19 - weddings by Courtney

Leah and Kevin are truly one of the most genuine, sincere and loving couples around. This was not only obvious by the people they surround themselves but also in how they showed appreciation to their friends and family. Their gifts were the cutest. From the personalized tank tops and champagne glasses for the Ladies to parents gifts with super special sentiments written inside. So much happiness and excitement filled the getting ready rooms of the bridal party it as Leah and Kevin prepped for their first look together.

Meadowbrook Mansion provided the gorgeous backdrop for the days events. It was inevitable that Kevin and Leah had the biggest smiles on their faces as they spent their first moments together. They both looked fabulous. Leah was stunning in her gorgeous lace gown and cathedral length veil (yep, you bet we made it fly for a few pics) and Kevin ever so handsome in his suit and bow tie. I could have photographed this couple and their bridal party all day long but there was an important ceremony to get to and a party to be well, partied.

Leah and Kevin's ceremony was held in the Pegasus garden with cocktails directly following on the back patio. The reception was in the tent outside and decorated so elegantly. Gorgeous flowers gave the perfect amount of color to the white and gold tables. After a great dinner and much merriment Leah and Kevin opened the dance floor which was filled the rest of the night.

Thank you so much for allowing me to capture your special day. A smile never left my face the entire day. I wish you a lifetime of happiness.
