Twirling Bride at The Treasury in Pontiac

I love to capture movement, to see the swaying, the flow of fabric, the way body goes through the motion.

I love the bride dances - first dance, or just the joy of twirling.

Lovely lakeside wedding at Twin Chimneys

Lucas and Alexa had their lovely lakeside wedding at Twin Chimneys Independence Oaks County park. Having an outside wedding in Michigan can have its risks - from scorching heat to rain, but this day only few drops came down earlier in the day, and the breeze from the lake made for a lovely celebration of love.

The pavilion was decorated with string lights and rustic table center pieces and guests were treated to handmade soaps as favors.

The couple said their I Dos in front of the gazebo and the park gave great options for romantic wedding photos on the docks of the lake and around the park.

Indian Wedding at Inn at Saint johns

This Indian wedding was filled with beautiful traditions incorporated in a Catholic mass at Inn at St Johns. The couple couldn’t have picket a more fitting venue. After bride and groom got ready we started with First look in the beautiful long hallway with high arching windows facing the courtyard.

Followed by couple taking photos with bridal party and family in the courtyard. I love First look as it gives couple a chance to get all the family photos out of the way and enjoy time with their guests right after the ceremony.

The couple had some fun ideas and I’m glad to capture all the joy and show off the personalities.

Clarkston Wedding at Shepards Hallow Golf Club

This small Clarkston Weddingwas at the Shepard's Hallow Golf Club.

When its love... well .... its love. Some families come together and are families way before the vows are said, and the rings exchanged. I always feel such a joy seeing two families coming together and celebrating their wedding day.

The bride had made their bouquets and the small pendant kept the family close that had passed on.

This was also the first time that I came across the wooden ring that the groom wore

L+T Railside Golf Club Wedding

This beautiful Railside Golf Club wedding truly showed the close ties of a loving family. 

Inspiration Michigan Wedding

The couple started their day together with the reading letters they wrote to each other before the first look, and got the formals and some of the creative photos out of the way, before heading to church. And then a vintage care brought them back to the golf club for all the festivities.

Fall Wedding in Troy, MI C + N are tying the knot

Fall wedding  brings promises of beauty in nature, and opportunities to incorporate apple cider and donuts in your treat section. When Michigan fall arrives, it brings golden colors to the parks, cooler breezes, and chillier nights. That's when you see groom pull his bride closer to keep her warm.  The sun sets earlier in the evening, and gives opportunities for amazing golden light to wash over the couple.  this fall wedding also involved meeting with couples beloved dog and some fun photo ops. And I was lucky enough, that bride  wanted to take full advantage of beautiful bright yellow and orange fall leaves on the ground and have some fun with them. What brings me the most joy when I photograph weddings, is when couples  truly enjoy their day. Forget the stress, the planning, the little things that seemed big. Just get lost in each other. Enjoy every moment of friends and family coming together to celebrate love. Have fun, jokes, laughter. Those weddings are amazing no matter whats the season.Beautiful fall wedding getting ready mi weddingMichigan wedding (12) Troy MI weddingMichigan wedding (8) Michigan wedding (7) Fall weddingFall wedding Mi beautiful michigan bridefun bridal party Donut  wedding cake Michigan wedding (14) Michigan wedding inspirationFor some other fall wedding inspiration take a peak here

A+F Wedding, Livonia MI

I was enjoying being part of A+F Chaldean wedding celebration. The day was full of tradition rooted in deep family values and filled with family and friends. This couple radiated love for each other and their big day just brought the people they cared about to a wonderful day celebrating that love. After getting ready bride and groom tied the know in a beautiful St Marys Church in Livonia. Bright church with ornate religious paintings covering the ceilings and front altar reminded of the sanctity or the new journey the couple was about to embark on. During the ceremony mother nature had brought strong storm with rain and hail and we were worried that we will not have much of opportunity to photograph outside, but just after the ceremony storm stopped for a brief half an hour and we could bring couple out for some photographs, they will be enjoying in their album and wall portrait . The ceremony was followed by reception at ornate Church hall. The wedding party and couple were announced and welcomed by a live band singing and celebrating the happy union with drumbeats and cheers. The dance floor took a brief break during dinner , and then celebrations continued late into the night.

Beautiful Detroit wedding

This weekend I enjoyed photographing beautiful Detroit Wedding. Who would have thought that at the beginning of October we will still be enjoying 80 degrees and sunshine and we took advantage of it and captured the big day on the streets of Detroit. Graffiti and urban ruggedness contrasted with beautiful white wedding gown of the bride and crisp tux of the groom. We stopped by graffiti walls at Creative Corridor, Fox Theater, Tiger of Comerica Park and Dirty Trick. Detroit has so much to offer with it beautiful landmarks. And this couple enjoyed their  wedding at places that meant most to them, from bright colors of graffiti, created by local artists to landmarks known to every Detroiter.  The ceremony took as to Belle Isle Conservatory, where flowers were still in bloom, and a curious bee landed on grooms boutonniere.
