Meghan and Alex!

Meghan and Alex were actually already married before Saturday- they got married before Alex was deployed to Iraq, but he's back safe and sound, and they held a beautiful vow renewel ceremony on Saturday! I was so excited to shoot this for them! I know Meghan from high school, and she's truly one of the sweetest people you'll ever meet. She was such a beautiful bride, and she and Alex are such a genuine, loving couple.

The event was held at the Alber Orchard in Manchester.

I stuck with an apple theme for a lot of the detail shots :)

I love this of Meghan and her bridesmaids waiting before the ceremony

Meghan looks like a princess here. She took her dad's hand so regally.

And they're off to the ceremony!

We were a little worried we might get rained out, but it turned out to be a beautiful day!

So much love between these two.

Amazing details. Meghan's so creative- her vision turned out beautifully!

Big Bridal Party. You can barely even see the tractor!


The orchard was so pretty.

We went around UofM's campus for some photos. This was my favorite- outside of the Natural History Museum.

Julie and Joe are married!

Joe and Julie were married on friday at the Henry Ford Estate in Dearborn. Although the day started out rainy- and made us all nervous, it ended up being a beautiful event, and a beautiful day.

The cameras came out as Julie got into her dress.

Such a lovely bride.

Julie and Joe decided to see each other before the ceremony. We were able to arrange a nice little moment for their reveal.
Joe looked so happy to see his bride.

Of course, there were a few tears.

I love this.

Julie's dad giving her away.

I really love this shot of the ring bearer with all the guys.

The details. So pretty, and with an antique feel that matched the setting perfectly.

Joe's brother giving a toast.

And finally, their first dance.


Melinda's bridals

I had the pleasure of shooting a bridal session for one of my July brides, the absolutely beautiful Melinda, the other day. Props to Dustin for coming out to shoot with me! He has an AMAZING shot of Melinda up HERE!

Here are a couple of my favorites:

I LOVE this one.

I like how the light and shadow from the trellis fall on her.

So free!


Candice and Jason are Engaged!

I had a second engagement session on Sunday- Candice and Jason! They're having a November wedding- a week after Jason gets home from the Navy! And he leaves in a week! At least Candice can stay busy planning her wedding, and staring at these romantic photos when she misses him :)

And yes, Mom, I know I take a lot of kissing photos :)

I think this one's my favorite.

Weeping willow

We found a little playground!

Now back to the moody romantic photos...

Big tree! So cool.

Sunday seemed to be a big day for kayaking, and as Candice and Jason were posing for this shot, the people on the river could see them- but not me. They starting hooting and whistling at them, since from their vantage point, it just looked like two people making out by the river :)

Jen and Brian are Engaged!

Jen and Brian are getting married this December. We had a really fun session at the Henry Ford Estate in Dearborn on Sunday. I didn't realize how big the place was! It was a very romantic location for engagement photos :)
Here are a couple of images that jumped out at me!

I really love this gate.

I'm realizing I have a thing for big trees :)
