Emily + Mike // Grand Rapids, MI
There is nothing that Emily+Mike did not think of when treating their friends and families at their wedding last month. It was a day full of surprises, entertainment, and most importantly witnessing these two say their vows and share their love with their friends and family.
This entraprenurial duo (Emily is the savvy owner of Richett Media and Mike started a personal local favorite Doorganics) are truly perfect together.  They are light-hearted together and full of laughter…they love fiercely but don’t take themselves too seriously.  They are the perfect balance in their relationship together.
Some of my personal favorite highlights from their day was the amazing entertainment they provided at their reception! Rawlston Bowles sang the couple a custom song during the cocktail hour, and a cappella group the Spartan Dischords provided their powerful voices and a cheeky performance during dinner.  I loved their venue choice of the UICA in downtown Grand Rapids and all of the sweet details they made sure to include for those they love.  Congratulations again Emily+Mike! I adore you both to the moon and back!

Ashley + Justin // Baltimore, MD
Earlier this month we hopped on a jet plane over to the East Coast to photograph Ashley+Justin’s nuptials. And from the minute we arrived, I felt like part of both of their families…what generous and loving people!
Ashley got ready that morning at her family’s home, getting hair and makeup done and then stepping into her stunning blush pink (!) gown.  Justin got ready in downtown Baltimore with his groomsmen.  Arriving to Richardson Farms later that afternoon for the ceremony, guests were greeted with the last of fall’s stunning color show and a barn filled with beautiful table settings and sweet treats and nibbles for after the ceremony. The cocktail hour was a nod to Justin’s dad Ryne Sandberg…for you baseball fans, no introduction needed! It was an honor to meet this hall-of-famer.  The reception had an incredible band and the music and dancing didn’t stop.  It was one amazing party and celebration!
Ashley and Justin have my hearts..they are warm and gracious and fun to be around. I am so excited for them as they begin their journey together as husband and wife!

Megan + Matt // Wedding Preview // Detroit Wedding Photographer

ac2_1371-copy

Sunday, October 13, 2014 – Southfield, MI

Being a part of a Jewish wedding celebration always leaves my heart full…I love the elements of the wedding day that are so steeped in tradition, the joy, and the closeness of families being brought together through this process.

Megan and Matt had a grand wedding last month…Megan was such a stunning bride! And her handsome husband Matt was dapper and full of joy marrying his sweet Megan. With both of them living in Washington DC, Megan’s mom did a lot of helping and planning with the day and it came together beautifully.  The florals on each table of the reception were a delight to see!

Enjoy this pretty preview and help wish this wonderful couple a lifetime of happiness. Mazal Tov!

A few weeks ago, WeddingDay Magazine sent over their copy of their new magazine…complete with features from Kelly+Austin’s wedding from last summer and Andrea+Graham’s wedding from June this year.

They also included a beautiful article about local wedding dress designer Shannon Gales from Vue Design and the collaboration we worked on this past spring together.  Talk about a fun issue!

Here is the online digital copy if you’d like to peruse it yourselves.  Enjoy enjoy!

Sasha + Jerry // Wedding Preview // Northern Michigan Wedding Photographer


ac2_6051-copySunday, October 6, 2014 – Glen Arbor, MI

These two beautiful souls were married earlier this month in my favorite area of the world…Northern Michigan. It rained during their (outdoor!) ceremony. Sasha+Jerry smiled through it all, and is a great reminder that while we can’t control the weather, we can control our emotions about it!

Sasha is a planner. She orchestrated most of this beautiful day with amazing and thoughtful little details sprinkled into every part of their wedding. Jerry adores this woman and it was clear to everyone around him this truth.  It was an intimate gathering and a beautiful day. My favorite part was driving around the penninsula after the ceremony with just the sweet bride and groom. The skies cleared up and by the end of the day the sun was shining in full force. What a perfect day!
