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!

Becca and Michael – MacRay Harbor Wedding

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!

Amy and Joe – Farm Engagement Session

Amy grew up around horses and so a farm setting only made sense for she and Joe.  We had a great time wandering around Amy’s dad’s horse farm and woods.  Miss Hadley, our stylist, kept us all in line. Keep watching in 2017 to see a beautiful wedding featuring Amy and Joe.

Eric and Erin – Our Lady of Sorrows and Cherry Creek Wedding

We last saw Eric and Erin in the fall of 2015 at MSU, where they met. The big day finally arrived and weather was nearly ideal.
 
Erin got ready at one of her bridesmaids homes and then the crew made their way to Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church in Farmington. A beatuiful ceremony wed Eric and Erin. Erin played a part in choosing much of the music and readings during the ceremony which made it even more special.
 
It was then off to Rochester Mills Beer Co. for some fun around the pool table and to celebrate. Then Cherry Creek Golf Club was our final destination for cocktail hour and the reception. We had a perfect evening for photos.
Congratulations Eric and Erin.

Erin and Eric – Michigan State Engagement Session

Although they didn’t meet at MSU, they both graduated from MSU and that bond evenutally brought them together indirectly. Season football ticket holders and true Sparty fans.
 
We spent time wandering around the MSU camputs, which is absolutely beautiful this time of the year. We found some of Eric and Erin’s favorite spots on our trek.
 
Stay tuned for a July 2016 wedding.

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.

Rachel and Eric – Shepherd’s Hollow Wedding

Eric and Rachel had a beautiful evening under the tall pines at Shepherd’s Hollow. This is one of my favorite golf courses to photograph at because of all the natural beatuy and the way the light comes through the trees.
 
The bride looked radiant and made her parents and the groom proud when she emerged from the clubhouse. Rachel’s brother performed the quick, but meaningful ceremony in front of the couples guests on the back patio.
 
We then had some fun around the grounds of the golf course before heading back in for the celebration and the evening’s festivities.
 
Best wishes Rachel and Eric.

Whitney and Bryan – Royal Oak and Southfield Wedding

Whitney and Bryan have been planning their day for months now and it finally arrived. Shrine of the Little Flower in Royal Oak and the Atrium of the Westin Southfield were there chosen venues. A perfect day, weather wise, was all that was needed. Although a bit hot, it was perfect.
The ceremony at Shrine was beautiful and intimate and both Whitney and Brian seemed so happy when the introduction of the new couple was made. We then travelled to downtown Royal Oak for some fun photos at Royal Oak Brewery and the streets of Royal Oak. Pleasant Ridge community park provided the background for a few more outdoor photos.
It was then off to the celebration at the Westin Southfield’s Atrium. What a great setting for a celebration.

Whitney and Bryan, congratulations and best wishes.

Erin and Joe – The Henry Ford, Greenfield VIllage and Lovett Hall Wedding

Erin and Joe are a super fun couple we last saw in the fall for their engagement session. On Friday, their wedding day finally arrived. It was a beautiful day for a wedding and beautiful reception at The Henry Ford, Greenfield Village and Lovett Hall.
 
The day started for both the guys and girls at the Adoba Hotel in Dearborn. We then did a romantic first look in the Blue Room at the Henry Ford. It was then a photo tour in a horse drawn bus around Greenfield Village, with Erin & Joe and the wedding party.
 
At Lovett Hall the ceremony tood place in the parlor on the lower level and then we moved up to the ballroom for the festivities. The evening was highlighted by a self composed song by Erin’s Dad, honoring her on her wedding day. What a beautiful setting for a beautiful day.
 

Melissa and Andrew’s Wedding Day – Twin Lakes Golf and Swim Club, Oakland Twp. MI

The big day for Melissa and Andrew finally got here. Andrew has been stationed in Alabama for pilot training for the past year and Melissa has been patiently waiting to join him and begin their lives together.
 
After a beautiful ceremony at Church of the Master Lutheran Church in Troy, MI we headed to Twin Lakes Golf and Swim Club in Oakland Township. Dodging a few raindrops we were able to capture some beautiful images on the course. It was then back to the clubhouse for the evening celebration. A mid-celebration launch of Chinese lanterns helped get the crowd into an even more celebratory mood.
 
Andrew, thank you for serving our country and Melissa…enjoy your life in Alabama with your groom.
