I loved my time in Chicago with these two! They trust me enough to try some experimentation. Created my first ever gif with them.  Thank you for giving me the honor to photograph your beautiful wedding. A special shout out to the ever lovely Kari Dawson and the awesome Ioana Calin for joining me on this adventure and rockin’ it!

Enjoy the peek!

It’s always a good day when you get to photograph at the DIA , add to that the bride and groom being the best of your friends and you’ve got LOVE from me! Morning started infused with Kate spade, from the shoes, to the bridesmaid dress, and even to the thank you gifts shows Adina’s love for all things KATE SPADE. We met up for a memorable first look at the Manresa Jesuit Retreat in Bloomfield Hills where Adina + Scott had their first date and where Scott proposed, making this a very special place for the both of them! A quick drive to the church and the ceremony was on its way with tears of joy and sounds of string melodies to accompany the couple through their day.

As we arrived at the DIA we gathered together for some quick family formals with the amazing marble covered structure as our background! The bride and groom took a minute to themselves before joining their guests by making a grand entrance into the Great Hall! Touches of Detroit’s art deco glory days were seen throughout the receptions’ decor. The DIA was the chosen reception site because Adina + Scott  wanted to showcase their love of Detroit and Art, this beautiful museum combined the best of both worlds. Guest were treated to an intimate dinner in the Great hall of the DIA , where they dined on an array of delicious dishes, whilst being serenaded by a string quartet and surrounded by gleaming silver armor. After dinner guests were encouraged to visit the European Art exhibit which was open to be perused and inspired by the art of love.  To end the night in good humor a Crazy-booth was set up for guests to leave a fun photo message for the bride and groom.  A special Thank YOU to my amazing team: 2nd photographer extraordinaire Kari Dawson and  the best assistant ever Ioana Calin! Here’s a bit of love and art from this past summer!

I love these two with my whole heart! I’ve been invited to capture their love since the beginning and I have had a blast through it all! From a summer island proposal, to a fall engagement, and a winter party we come full circle to their spring wedding.

Say hello to my beautiful cousin Emilia and her now husband Bogdan! I got to celebrate with these two in Cluj,Romania at the beginning of this month. They are both insanely in love with each other and each the perfect compliment to the other. He’s always running late but seems to get places just on time, she’s always organizing and making lists to keep things in order. Her apartment had lists even on the walls. I know we are family from this fact alone! lol Their wedding was not only beautiful but personal which makes any wedding that much more for me. Having the ability to fly out to Europe in the middle of my summer season was a blessing in and of itself but having to get out there to celebrate such a joyous occasion was fantastic. I won’t lie, family weddings are my hardest weddings just because my own emotions are tied up into them and I can’t experience them objectively but quite subjectively only. I stress out with the bride and groom like it was my wedding the next day and I can’t help but be involved in the running around the days before. So the bride, groom and I got about 3 hours of sleep combined between us the night of the wedding but thank GOD for the high of adrenaline running through our viens. We got to shoot in amazing locations with awesome people. Bogdan a soccer (football for the europeans)  fan even got us into the soccer (football) stadium and we had some righteous fun running around in there! Emilia + Bogdan, thank you for having me be part of your wedding and I hope your wait for the preview is totally worth it! LOVE ya!

A quick peek at the cute couple who got married this Saturday. It was windy but the sun was glorious and the colors of fall are never at fail here in MI. Evelina and Dan were great and gave 2 hours of their day for photos of just them two! I love that. We got to do quite a bit of stuff because of that time frame. We visited some sites from their engagement session and continued on some new ones too. God Bless you guys in a beautiful future together! I can’t wait to come over for dinner after all those toasts I heard on Dan’s cooking. 🙂

Well, I’ll answer you that with a glimpse of this photograph from yesterday! Yes that’s the Detroit skyline getting grazed just right by the setting sun. It was quite a memorable experience. Cristina + Teo loved this shot, so its getting first dibs on the blog! The rest of their after session is Detroit Love! We hit up everything from grimy, dirty, back alleys, full of brick and awesomeness to fun warehouses that we should all play in. More to come from these two soon.

These two just celebrated their 1 yr aniversary and I figured its time to finally blog their full wedding. Yeah, yeah I’m behind on Wedding blogging but in my defense I feel actually delivering the product to my clients is more important than up-keeping my blog. I might get slaughtered by fellow photographers on this but that’s my fail and I live up to it. I’ve been trying with my session peeks to keep consistent and have been a bit more successful but I’m going to get my blogging gears oiled up and finally committed to posting some full weddings. I’ve been blessed with such wonderful clients who put their amazing personalities into their wedding decor. I am always awed when their details are so right on to who they are as a couple and really reflect their coolness. Cuz lets face it my clients are pretty cool. I’d sport all of them as friends and that’s no lie.
Now back to who the blog is about: Antonia + Brandon! The pictures should tell the story but a bit of behind the scenes info for you: I’ve known Antonia since her brother Val married one of my great friends Andreea. She is such an easy going person that its easy to spend hours with her and feel like time passes too fast. She’s also a style guru, urban chic is her thing and I love seeing her outfits. So when it came to her wedding I knew she was gonna blow me away, plus she had Andreea which is decor queen, her super stylish mom and sisters helping her with every move. I was definitely not let down. 40’s Vintage + Music were the theme and I was in heaven. Brandon being the most chilled groom I’ve ever met looked oh-so-dapper in his coat-tails.

While the toasts were top notch the interpretative dance by Brandon’s youth paster  is one of my favorite to date! I think it should be a new trend, toasts by dance or song! 🙂
