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 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.
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.
I had so much fun last night with Jared and Olivia. They are a couple that likes to be silly and have fun and that makes a photographer’s job so much easier. From the rope swing in front of their house, to pumpkin picking at Franklin Cider Mill, to cheering for the home team in the old Tiger Stadium seats at the park…this couple knows how to make each other laugh.
Things may get a little more serious after the Tigers win last night. Olivia is a lifelong Boston Red Sox fan. Things may be a little tense around their household for the next week.
Stay tuned for their wedding photos in about a month.
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.
Ashley and Jeff dodged the raindrops on Friday and ended up with a beautiful wedding day at Pine Knob Pine Knob Mansion and Carriage House. The happy couple chose a first look prior to the ceremony and we had some time for some romantic photos after. Then it was off to the Pine Knob Mansion and some photos with the bridal party.
After some rain prior to the ceremony, the showers let up and the couple exchanged vows under the pavillion at the Carriage House. A great meal and a fun evening followed inside.
Best wishes to Jeff and Ashley.
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.
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!
Tracey grew up in Rochester, but she and Kurt now live in Cincinnati. We chose the Rochester Park area to do their engagement session. What a perfect morning, albiet a little cool, but the sun was just perfect. We also made it over to the Rochester Grain Elevator for a few fun shots. Kurt is a Cleveland Indians fan and Tracey is a Detroit Tigers fan, so we had to bring that into the mix too. Tracey and Kurt’s wedding is coming up in December, so check back soon.
