Pine Knob Carriage House Wedding

L … is for the way you look at me. 

O … is for the only one I see.

V … is very extra ordinary,

E … is even more than anyone you adore.

Love is made for you and me.

I will never be able to listen to that rendition of Nat king Cole’s classic love song without being taken back to John & Jennifer’s wedding day, when he got up and serenaded her just following their toasts and in a room full of people who have supported their love and stood by their side for  all those years. It one one of the most romantic moments I’ve seen as a wedding photographer and I felt so darn lucky to be there to witness this love they share.  The day was certainly full of family & friends from both sides, but truly felt like they had all been one family already for years. Their love came together in a simple, old fashioned way as love should. And their wedding day was no different. When I met these two in my office many months ago for their consult, I was smitten with their gentle & kind nature and knew their wedding dat at the Pine Knob Carriage House was going to be amazing.  Since their wedding date fell just 3 days shy of my own, I knew I had to open up that weekend and be there for these two.  And I’m so glad I did.

Here’s a peek at John & Jennifer’s Pine Knob Carriage House Wedding.

Dear September, slooooow down. This month has been such  whirlwind of engagement shoots, seniors and weddings I barely have a moment to catch my breath!  I have a backlog of beautiful couples just waiting to show off their shoots, and not nearly enough time at my desk to do it.  But I’m ok with that, because behind my camera is my favorite place to be.  It’s my favorite place to be because I get to spend time with my clients getting to know a little more about them, how they met and they wedding day plans.  Which normally sounds like small talk, but to a wedding photographer, it’s my everything!  It’s how I take a peek into their very own love story and what makes them click.  It gives me insight into what they want toe wedding day to actually “feel” like and how I will tell that to everyone who sees their images after the fact.  And that’s what I do best.  I want guests who were there (or even those who could not attend) look back and remember that day for the moments that unfolded both sweet and outrageous. That’s what I do!

But enough rambling (once again) about how much I love my job … here’s a peek at Bobbie & Steve’s sweet engagement shoot from a few weeks ago.  I loved getting to know these guys better, and despite crazy schedules, we were abele to spend a few hours together. Enjoy!

Ann Arbor Engagement

Usually, October is complete mayhem for a wedding photographer in Michigan.  But this year, it’s September that has my head spinning!  Spinning in the best way possible, of course. I’m settled in, behind my camera shooting couples, seniors, weddings and furry friends and barely enough time to keep up with it all. You will not however, hear this girl complain.  I have had some of THE BEST clients this year.  My schedule is filled with some of the most incredible humans this season.  And even better stories. I love hearing about each and every one of them.

Like Whitney & Oliver.  I loved hearing about when and how they came together, and really started to understand their connection and sweetness when they’re together.  They will be getting married almost 10 years to the day of their first kiss.  Does it get any sweeter than that?

We met many weeks ago now (I am sooooo behind!) along with her parents and their fur baby for their Ann Arbor engagement shoot in the Arb.  It was a darn near perfect night and we couldn’t have asked for better weather or lighter crowds. They are getting married very soon.  In just a few weeks, as a matter of fact! Their wedding at Colony Club Detroit is going to be filled with family, friends from all over and I cannot wait to be there to celebrate with them.  Here’s a peek at our time together for their Ann Arbor engagement shoot.
