Dax and Alexa – Detroit Institute of Arts Wedding

Dax and Alexa are about as “Detroit” as a couple from Chicago can get. I love Chicago, but I think it’s so cool this couple chose Detroit for their wedding, because they enjoy being in the D.
From the getting ready photos at the Crowne Plaza, to the guys hitting some highlights of the city before the wedding, to the beautiful ceremony at the DIA. Wow, what a whirlwind day and the best part was that the rain cleared out so we could capture it all.
Best wishes to a beautiful couple and their lifetime together!

Lance and Kaitlyn – Bloomfield Hills Michigan Engagement Session

Kaitlyn and Lance wanted a fall beauty engagement session. Although the trees haven’t completely turned, we still had some nice backgrounds. They also wanted to include their two daughters in the photos, which was a bunch of fun too. The Bloomfield Hills Nature Center provided a great background for the afternoon with this happy couple/family. Stay tuned for a early summer 2016 wedding.

Becca and Mike – Traverse City Michigan Engagement Session

Becca is from Traverse City and Mike was stationed in Traverse City with the Coast Guard when they met. The rest is history. Although their wedding is going to be in the Detroit area, they wanted to make sure they had some photos of the area of the state that is so dear to them. Old Mission Peninsula’s lighthouse and wineries and orchards and downtown Traverse City played as backdrops for the photos. What a beautiful afternoon.

Kristen and Nick – Ann Arbor Marriott at Eagle Crest Wedding

It was a perfect day for an outdoor wedding. It definitely was a little warmer than when we last saw Nick and Kristen, in early December for their engagement session.
Kristen looked stunning walking down the aisle with her father, meeting a dapper looking Nick who had a huge smile on his face. The golf course, Eagle Crest, provided our backdrop for some fun and romantic photos of the happy couple. It was then off to the beautifully decorated tent for the evening celebration. Friends and family kept the dance floor full.
Congratulation Nick and Kristen!

Jason and Michelle – Belle Isle Engagment Session

Jason and Julie chose mid October and Belle Isle for their engagement session. The trees were amazingly beautiful, the sky could have cooperated a little more, but we still ended up with some wonderful images on a cool fall day. I can’t wait until their spring wedding for some more amazing images.

Pete and Jenny – Royal Park Hotel Wedding Day

I’ve known Jenny for a few years now. I was so happy that she met someone to spend her life with. Their small and intimate day took place at the Royal Park Hotel in Rochester. Jenny looked stunning in her beautiful dress and Pete was equally handsome. The day included Jenny and Pete’s children, which made it special for them. The skies cleared in the evening so we could get some beautiful photos by Paint Creek and then head inside to the reception. Congratulations Pete and Jenny.

Monica and Matt – Pine Knob Mansion Wedding Day

A perfect day for a beautiful wedding at Clarkston’s Pine Knob Mansion. For a small intimate wedding, I don’t think there is a more beautiful venue in Metro Detroit…especially for a summer wedding.

Monica and Matt had a wonderful ceremony that combined both of their faiths and included personalized vows. After the ceremony the guests enjoyed the perfect weather on the patio for a cocktail hour. The wedding guests kept the dance floor busy all night and helped Matt and Monica celebrate their special day. Best wishes to the happy couple.

Josh and Ashley – Rochester, Michigan Engagement Session

Josh and Ashley started out their session a little stressed about having to take photos. By the time they were done, they both said they had fun and I think we ended up with some nice images. Spending an evening at Rochester Municipal Park with changing trees…we couldn’t go wrong. Ashley and Josh are hoping for a great fall wedding day in October 2014.

Mike and Bridget – Grosse Pointe Academy and Detroit Yacht Club Wedding

Mike and Bridget booked me last fall and I’ve been looking forward to their day since. Two classic Detroit landmarks, Grosse Pointe Academy and the Detroit Yacht Club served as their venues.

Starting the day getting ready at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center, makes for great prep photos. We then headed to the Academy and dodged a few raindrops, but nothing was going to dampen the day. After a standing room only mass, we spent some time outside the Academy building for some formal and fun shots.

It was then off to the Detroit Yacht Club and the reception. We spent a little more time outside of the Club before the cocktail hour for a few fun and nearly wet photos…just as Bridget’s brother Eric. After dinner, the festivities continued with the formal dances and a lot of other guests on the dance floor enjoying themselves.

Bridget and Mike, best wishes and enjoy your photos.

Joe and Amy – Deckerville English Country Home Wedding

Joe and Amy picked Inner Circles Estates in Deckerville to hold their ceremony and reception. What a unique and fun venue. Between the home and the grounds, the photo possibilities are endless.

In a late afternoon ceremony Joe and Amy tied the knot and then a beautiful outdoor reception ended the day. We couldn’t pass up the unique pool area for a fun photo with Amy and Joe.

Best wishes for a long life together.
