Ann Arbor Michigan Wedding Photography

It was the perfect day in June for Emily and Weston’s wedding. We started the day with the beautiful Bride getting ready. I always photograph a bride getting ready. Because wedding days always go by so fast, the little details are just as important to photograph. Later, as the ceremony began, Emily walked down the aisle in her stunning dress. I caught Weston’s reaction. There is nothing more inspiring than a Groom who shows his love for his Bride.

It wouldn’t be a summer day in Michigan if we didn’t have a random rainstorm. You never know what is going to happen! Thankfully it cleared up by the reception and gave us gorgeous skies! We were finally able to do some fun shots with the bride, groom, and the rest of the wedding party.

The reception was stunning and beautiful! I loved capturing the moments shared between Weston and Emily for their first dance. I especially enjoyed capturing the love between the couple, and the first few moments they shared together as a husband and wife. One of my favorite things about being a wedding photographer is how fast paced they are. You are always on your toes! You have to be quick at not only taking the photos, but being creative while doing so! The fact that I have known the Groom for well over a decade made it even more special. I especially love photographing the weddings of friends!

It was certainly a wonderful day filled with fun people, and great food! If you’d like to see Emily and Weston’s engagement session, click on this link!

Emily and Weston, I wish you guys the best and many full years as man and wife. But most of all, I wish your lives to be shared in love. Love never fails! Thank you for allowing me to capture your beautiful Michigan wedding!

And no wedding is complete without a fun before and after picture! I love fun couples, and am so glad we did this shot again on their big day. There’s nothing like starting a marriage with an epic light saber battle!

I had such a great time with this couple for their engagement session. The soon to be groom and I go way back, I’ve known him for over a decade! He was the best man at our wedding. It’s so awesome to see him now getting ready to take the plunge into the wonderful world of marriage 🙂 We had a crazy, warm, 40 degree day (In February, in MICHIGAN!!) The weather so perfect for our session, and I got so many fun shots!

Tips for Your Michigan Engagement Session

Here are a few tips for booking an engagement photographer. First, since weather in Michigan is so unpredictable, it’s good to have your engagement session done as early as late spring. The latest I recommend is early Fall because it could be snowing in both Spring and Fall. Second, I recommend bringing a few outfits to your session. It adds variety and when you hang up your photos, it will look like you had more than one session done! Another great tip I always tell clients is to be sure your outfits coordinate-and never to wear the same clothes-otherwise you look like Target employees 🙂 Lastly, have fun! Being carefree and full of excitement for your upcoming day will show in your photos!

Here are a few of my favorites from our session. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding in a few short months 🙂

I’ve known the bride, Jen, for years. It was such an honor to be asked to photograph her wedding! Rain was on the forecast all week, but we got lucky and it was a beautiful, cloudy day. (Dream weather for photographers!) We started the day out at Saint Andrews on Wayne State University for their wedding ceremony. It was a beautiful church with amazing stain glass windows! We were able to travel all over Detroit to get their formals, too! Then we ended the day at their reception, which was at King’s Court Castle at Canterbury Village. It is a beautiful venue, with lots of historic and beautiful architecture. I always love wedding receptions because of how much fun they are. Unfortunately, Jen’s father passed away a few years ago. But one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen, is that during Jen’s dance with her mother, a rainbow appeared. I know it’s just the way lighting works, but I use off camera flash at every wedding reception I photograph and it’s never appeared before-it was amazing! Here are a few of my favorites from Jen and Calvin’s wedding day-hope you enjoy!

We had the most perfect weather and it was such a beautiful day! They had such a beautiful wedding party and I loved their dresses, especially the bride’s dress! There were beautiful flower fields all around us, so we took advantage and got lots of pictures in them.  Check out their Detroit engagement photography session by clicking here! I had so many favorites, it was so hard to narrow down for just the sneak peek.

It was such a fun-filled day photographing Eliza and Michael’s special day. Eliza was an absolutely stunning bride and the love her and Michael share was so inspiring! We started the day by capturing Eliza get ready and finish up her makeup. The ceremony was lovely, and full of many friends and family to celebrate their day. I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day. Here are a few of my favorites from their wedding day!
You may remember their engagement session from last year, check it out here! I wish you two the best and most happiness in life!
