Megan and Keith – School Starts and the Teachers Get Hitched

Megan and Keith met when teaching math at the same high school. September 2, they tied the knot and decided that 9+2=11 (the date of their wedding) and will live happily ever after. What a fun couple and bridal party. I don’t think I’ve ever met a cooler bride and groom on their wedding day, nothing was going to phase either one of them, and that was the case. Megan and Keith chose a “first look” alone, at Shelby Township Heritage Park, to start the days festivities. The bridal party then traveled to Troy Historical Village for some fun photos in the historic school and around the grounds. Then it was on to the ceremony at Stoney Creek Metroark and a beautiful setting next to the lake, for the most important part of the day. We then finished off the fun at Palazzo Grande in Shelby Township for the night of celebration and partying. What a beautiful day and a handsome couple.

Mike and Jessica – Stoney Creek Engagement Session

After a few washout days this spring, we finally got a beautiful evening for Mike and Jessica…and Nikko (their 6 month old puppy) too. A springtime walk at Stoney Creek Metropark made the background for our e-session. Some of my favorite areas of the park didn’t let us down. While the ground cover is still emerging, some of the spring flowers made for some beautiful splashes of color. Nikko may not have enjoyed the walk so much, winding up with a coat of burrs for the happy parents to spend the evening picking out. Mike and Jessica are getting married in September and I am truly looking forward to their wedding.

Sarah and Adam – “Rainy” Stoney Creek

It seems like this spring has brought rain for a lot of my engagement sessions. Adam and Sarah picked Stoney Creek Metropark as their destination. It started out somewhat overcast on a beautiful spring walk back into the forest. What a great place to take engagement photos in the spring, before the leaves are fully blocking the sunlight. We visited some of their favorite spots and headed back to the parking lot to move our destination to the beach area at the park. Then the rain started, first just a nice spring shower, then a full blown downpour. We never really got to fully finish our session, but we were able to do some fun pictures at the pavilion. In a couple of the pictures, you will see a grey scarf that Adam knitted for Sarah for their first Christmas and a belt buckle Sarah made for Adam. I thought that was a cool way to tie their relationship together. Looking forward to a nice summer, non-rainy, wedding for Adam and Sarah.
