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.

Julie and Jon – Post Wedding Session Bloomfield Hills Michigan

Julie had talked to me about wanting to do a fall session since they booked me over a year ago. We last saw Jon and Julie a month ago on their wedding day. Now they are ready to get on with their lives.

We had a perfect day for Jon and Julie to put on their wedding outfits for one last time. The E.L. Johnson Nature Center in Bloomfield Hills provided a perfect background. The fall colors were just perfect. Jon was an extra trooper, agreeing to do the session after running the Detroit Marathon earlier that day.

Sarah and Richard – Bloomfield Hills and Troy, Michigan Wedding

Richard and Sarah started dating years ago, at Troy High School, they then went on to Michigan State and after graduation, took jobs in different states.  On Saturday, they made their relationship complete, by saying their vows and starting a life together in Columbus, Ohio.  Their beautiful day started out at Academy of the Sacred Heart Chapel.  We had a fun time doing some photos around the campus their following their ceremony.  We then stopped by their old alma mater of Troy High for some photos with their bridal party, many of whom also went to THS.  It was then off to Petruzello’s in Troy for the reception.  The dance floor was full the entire evening.  Best wishes for your new life together.

Olivia and Jared’s Oakland Hills Country Club Wedding

Lot’s of east coast relatives came in to help Olivia and Jared celebrate their wedding. Michigan in November can always be somewhat of a unknown when it comes to weather, but we hit a great fall day to have a wedding. Oakland Hills Country Club was the backdrop for their celebration. A few photos outside prior to the ceremony, their vows combining Jewish and Christian faiths, and then a quick flip of the room and a celebration. The Jerry Ross Band provided the music and entertainment for the evening. Best wishes to the happy couple.

Jack and Nicole – Academy of Sacred Heart and Twin Lakes Golf Club Wedding

Jack and Nicole were last seen on the blog nearly a year ago with their engagement session. Fast forward a year and they had the perfect wedding day planned. Starting with Nicole and the girls getting ready at Royal Park Hotel. The party then moved to Academy of Sacred Heart for a beautiful ceremony. The plan was then to do some fun outdoor photos with the wedding party, but mother nature decided to throw us a curve ball and we ended up at Rochester Mills Brewery. Then we moved on to the party destination at Twin Lakes Golf Club. Flourish Event Design did a wonderful job with the reception and flowers. Congratulations to Jack and Nicole.

Aaron and Mary – Birmingham / Bloomfield Engagement Session

Aaron and Mary weren’t real picky about where they had their engagement session photos taken, but they did want a few taken at an overpass in Birmingham that they would spend time watching trains.  So that’s exactly where we started.  Then it was off to Cranbrook in Bloomfield Hills for some photos around the grounds there.  Although many of the leaves have now gone from the trees, we were still able to get some of the feelings of Michigan’s fall.  Enjoy!

Rob and Shannon – Perfect Fall Wedding Day

Last time we saw Rob and Shannon, it was spring and trees were budding…Saturday was the perfect fall day with the trees near their peak of color.  Rob and Shannon exchanged their vows after 9 years of courtship.  With the wedding taking place at Academy of Sacred Heart in Bloomfield Hills and the reception at San Marino Club in Troy, we had plenty of opportunities for some great photo opportunities.  Between the wedding and reception we made a quick stop at Quarton Lake in Birmingham for some late afternoon photos.  A great time was had by their friends and family at the reception.  Best wishes for a wonderful life.

Andrea and Ryan – Early Fall Wedding

Andrea and Ryan’s wild wedding week finally came to a close on Saturday, with the most important event.  The ceremony was held at St. Owen Catholic Church in Franklin, Michigan.  We then headed to Franklin Village Community Center for some fun photos with the wedding party.  It was then off to Wabeek Country Club for a few more golfing and fun photos and then the beautiful reception.  It’s back to their residency program for the newlyweds, but we wish them all the best.

Erica and Kyle – Engagement Session Cranbrook Bloomfield Hills, Michigan

Erica and Kyle are tying the knot in September, but wanted to get their engagement images done this spring.  Unbelievably, an engagement session in March this year looks like April or May most years.  With the awesome Michigan weather this last week the trees have started blooming and gave us some great backgrounds.  Cranbrook is always a fun place to shoot with a diverse selection of architecture.  Watch for Erica and Kyle’s wedding photos later this year.

Julie and George – Beautiful Fall Wedding

Julie and George are one of the classiest couples I have photographed this year. Julie, an event planner, was meticulous in making sure the day turned out as she had dreamed. The ceremony was at St. Thomas More church in Troy, MI. After a meaningful ceremony, the festivities moved to Oakland Hills Country Club for the reception. A strolling dinner and the entertainment of the Jerry Ross Band highlighted the evening at the historic venue. Congratulations Julie and George and enjoy your honeymoon.
