Ruchi and Praveen and getting married later this year in Redmonds, WA, but wanted to get their engagement photos in Detroit. Praveen grew up in the Detroit area and is in a residency program at the DMC. Ruchi will be moving here after her graduation from pharmacy school. Since winter in Michigan isn’t always perfect, we chose the Detroit Public Library for some indoor shots and then around the library and Detroit Institute of Arts for some outdoor shots. We ended up with a perfect day that wasn’t terribly cold and light fluffy snow falling for our outdoor images. Our outdoor images, with the snow, ended up with a very romantic feel. Best wishes Ruchi and Praveen.
Seems like the last three weeks have brought us rainy weddings, but we’ve for the most part had an opportunity to get some beautiful shots in, between drops. Sara and Stanislav chose Addison Oaks in Leonard, Michigan as their venue for both wedding and reception. In a traditional Jewish ceremony with the chuppah protecting them from the light rain, Sara and Stanislav said their vows. We were able to get family and group shots in on the beautiful grounds at Addison Oaks. Then the party started inside.
For those of you who follow my blog, you may remember a fun Ann Arbor engagement session with the couple on ice skates. We had an equally fun time with their wedding. Best wishes for a long and happy life.
I think we’ve tried a couple of times to schedule Carmen and Walter’s engagement session, but Michigan weather has a way of changing things. So, finally we got a beautiful Michigan winter day on Sunday and were able to get the images done. A light snowfall on Saturday night made for a nice backdrop at Cranbrook. Carmen was a trooper when it came to shedding her coat to have, “less winter looking photos”. It will be much nicer at Bay Harbor on Aug. 13 this year. I look forward to celebrating with them.
