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.
Whitney and Brian are such a fun couple and you feel how much they enjoy spending time together. We had a perfect fall evening on the shores of Quarton Lake in Birmingham. Although the fall colors are still a little spotty, you still feel the warmth of the autumn light as the days get shorter. Enjoy the photos and stay tuned for a beautiful wedding in July 2015.
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.
Kristin and Kyle chose downtown Rochester for their engagement session. We had a perfect fall evening to wander along Paint Creek and downtown Rochester. We are looking forward to Kristin and Kyle’s big day in 2014. Stay tuned.
Kelsey and Kyle had a wedding day that dreams were made of. Although Kelsey and Kyle are CMU Chippewas, they both have been lifelong UM fans. They had a day of dreams planned.
Kelsey had been dreaming of the wedding day since she was a little girl. She planned a hidden first look planned that then moved into the true first look, in the garden at the Michigan League where Kelsey’s parents were married. We had some time and grabbed some photo ops on the way to Michigan Union and the ceremony.
Kelsey had given Kyle a gift at the first look of a tour of Michigan Stadium after the ceremony. Kyle and the groomsmen were like a bunch of little kids as they walked thru the locker room and onto the field of the Big House. After an hour of fun there, it was back to Michigan Union for the evenings festivities.
A wedding should always be a dream, but I truly think it was for Kyle and Kelsey. Best wishes!!!
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.
Tony and Maria had been planning their perfect day for a year now, and I’d say everything turned out just as planned. Clarkston Community Church was where the happy couple said their vows to each other, then it was off to Canterbury Village in Orion Township for the celebration. We made some stops along the way at Friendship Park and Lake Sixteen for some shots of the couple and bridal party. The antique carousel at Canterbury provided the background for a few more fun shots before heading to Kings Court Castle and the reception. A beautiful celebration followed and an amazing time was had by all.
