Did you see what I did there with the title?! Madison and Brandon's engagement session took place in downtown Ann Arbor, MI, and I just lovelovelove that they incorporated so many personal details into their engagement portraits - like Madison's love of books and the couple's love of all things colorful and happy! . . .Read more
I was sitting at my desk, back in March, and working my way through my Monday when I received an email in the afternoon from my college friend, Shannon. As I read the email for a moment I thought, "Oh my gosh! Did I miss her getting engaged on Facebook?!?", but as I read farther Shannon explained that her and Thomas weren't even officially engaged (the ring hadn't arrived yet!) BUT that they were starting to plan their wedding and were curious about my availability between July and September! . . .Read more
Anna and Michael's wedding day in Hartland, MI began with bright sunshine and not one cloud in the sky. Anna prepared to marry Michael in the bridal suite of Waldenwoods Resort while Michael put on his navy suit and fastened his bow tie along side his groomsmen in a charming, almost southern style, house on the property called the Sunshine Lodge (which was so fitting for the beautiful weather!).Read more
While getting to know Kara + Mark in the days leading up to their wedding, I discovered that Kara is a girl after my own heart as she has read all seven Harry Potter books on multiple occasions! I'm even a step above her on the HP nerd scale as I have all seven on audiobook and listen to them on repeat while cleaning or when driving home from a destination wedding. (Weasley is our King!) So although they wouldn't be having a HP themed wedding, they did plan on having a beautiful celebration where friends and family could enjoy themselves and have fun. I was so excited and honored to be chosen as their wedding photographer.Read more
Leah and her bridesmaids blotted their lips and curled their hair. Albert and his groomsmen had a few celebratory toasts and fashioned their pocket squares after some helpful guidance from YouTube. As the cloudy day at the Midland Convention Center progressed, the anticipation and excitement heighten as family began to fill into the ceremony seats.
Leah's grandmother had a perfect view at the front as her granddaughter glided up the aisle towards Albert, and she couldn't contain a look of awe and love as Leah walked forward.
Laughter and tears cracked through the friends and family in attendance as the couple each exchanged personal vows which were then sealed with a kiss. Words of hope and long-forgotten stories were shared during the reception toasts and crazy fun dance moves were heavily encouraged throughout the night.
Leah and Albert I wish you so much happiness and success in your new life together as Mr. and Mrs.!
