We fought the probability of rain most of the day, but Becca and Michael didn’t let it stop them from an amazingly beautiful wedding. Michael, who is in the US Coast Guard, helped to organize the nautical themed wedding. Becca and her bridesmaids looked wonderful and other than the outdoor ceremony being moved in, the day went off without a hitch.
Best Wishes, Becca and Michael!
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 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.
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.
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.
Charlie and Nicole chose Brighton for their engagement session. I have been to Brighton quite a few times, but have never photographed there. Brighton has a vibrant downtown area with a riverwalk and some nice buildings that make great backgrounds. Nicole and Charlie aren’t getting married until next summer, but we took the advantage of some great weather to get some super shots. It never hurts having a handsome couple also. Enjoy.
Cassie and Anthony are one of those fun couples I always look forward to photographing. With the perfect venue for the couple, Bay Pointe Golf Club, and a beautiful day we couldn’t help but hit a home run. Cassie and the bridesmaids looked stunning and Anthony and the groomsmen looked dapper in their tuxs’. With a beautiful outdoor, lakeside, ceremony, a classy reception and a handsome couple, my job was easy. Best wishes to the newlyweds.
Jennifer and Mark were my last scheduled engagement session for the fall season. It was a crisp fall evening and we were able to capture some of the beauty of Michigan’s autumn before the snow starts to fly. The thing I learned quickly about Jennifer and Mark is they love spending time together in the outdoors…and they love to horse around with each other. There was never a shortage of smiles on our tour of the farm and surrounding areas. I love seeing a couple that can so easily interact with each other. It truly makes my job of capturing them that much easier. If we look for Jennifer and Mark in the next week, we’ll probably find them in a deer blind. Come December, we’ll see them back here on the blog with their wedding photos.
Erica and Kyle had the perfect day for a beautiful fall wedding at Shepherd’s Hollow in Clarkston, MI. What a great venue and a super fun wedding party. Their vows were said with the tall pines and a setting sun as the background. We then headed out to one of the picturesque holes on the course for some fun photos with the wedding party. The party then continued back in the clubhouse with a great meal and dancing. Best Wishes Kyle and Erica.
