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!

Just two more days  until these two darlings tie the knot in one of my favorite cities Chicago, aka Chi-town, aka awesome sauce! Since their summer wedding is in the city we decided for a bit of  fun in the spring nature of Michigan for their engagement portraits.  Nicki I’ve known since she was a wee babe, her aunt is my bestie and I’ve been blessed  to work with her amazing family for years (I just shot her sister Tiffany’s wedding in May).  Nathan, Nate the Great as he is known to his close friends, I’ve gotten to know recently but as this small world goes we’ve met when I shot his cousins’  (Dorothy and Josh)  wedding. This is kind of a legacy wedding for me since both families are intertwined with my work since it began.   The best thing about these two is they make me laugh, hard and are always up for something crazy. I can’t wait to see what shenanigans we’ll get up to for the wedding, we have a whole city chock-full of mischief to claim. Nicki tries to keep us in check but I like where Nathan lets his ideas go! See you soon in the city!

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!

Tiffany and Patrick joined me for some snow fun! We were waiting for the blizzards to hit us and boy did they not disappoint this year. Treading through trails of fields and forests in  snowbanks of 5ft at points, this was definitely a first for all of us! But so worth it, look at the goodies we got! We even finished off the fun with a traditional snowball fight. See the rest of the story unfold in May!

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.

This past week I’ve been doing a ton of undercover work and getting invited to witness amazing moments of LOVE. Wednesday past I was hitching rides on boats to wonderful islands on Pure Michigan Lakes and hiding in grass taller then me to capture the surprise proposal Jason had planned for Andreea. With the wonderful help of Jason’s sister Jessie, his brother Sam (our soaked to the bone boat hero), and Andreea’s sister Jenny it turned out awesome and a definite surprise!

There’s a ton of behind the scenes of the planning and building phase that I’ll post of Facebook for fun! Make sure to watch for that coming up.

Spent the evening with this fabulous girl and her amazing style. I’m in love with her eyes by the way and can’t get enough. Her awesome sisters came out and helped us with holding all her shoes and outfits plus acting as my grip holder and runners to the car for everything. Thanks so much ladies for all your help and being troopers in everything I threw at you, litteraly! Emma, I can’t wait for you to see how lovely you truly are. You can now never say you are not good in pictures. You’re beautiful!
