Lisa & Dan – Wedding at The Fox Theater, Detroit

It’s easy to get lost or focused on just the details from a wedding.  While they help set the tone and mood they should ultimately just be the supporting elements to the real reason of why a wedding takes place; love, commitment, family and celebration.  Lisa & Dan showcase how to be completely in tune with those moments and reasons even when you’re in such an amazingly beautiful & detailed venue as The Fox Theater.  Even when we were creating the stunning portraits you see of them, they allowed their love for each other to show; a photographers dream.

Special thanks goes to Alison, owner of Viva La Diva events, truly one of the best around and in the industry.  Alison and her team undertook the huge task of coordinating a ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all in one space!  Also serving as the event designer she could not have crafted a more beautiful compliment to the Fox Theater.  The modern & beautiful cake was done by Bryant Stuckey, owner of Decadent Delight.  We also got to work with one of favorite cinematography teams, Two Penny Productions.  Can’t wait to see what they created!  Enjoy & Share.

    Not that it is a surprise but you did an amazing job. I started to pick a favorite but there were too many. Just breath taking. You have such great barrings on where you are and take great use of reflection.

    I have know Lisa since she was an infant, you have captured her beauty and the love she has for Daniel in such an incrediable way. She is stunning in these photos! Her parents Tizi and Rick also glow with the love they have for their daughter on her wedding day. We all had such a lovely time witnessing their vows, enjoying the meal and dancing the night away. Thank you for sharing these pictures with us. What a treasure they are of the fabulous memories of that special January day.

    The set up of the Fox Theater for this wedding is absolutely breathtaking! I love how the family and bridal party are sitting at tables at the top of the staircase. The love is definitely evident not only between the couple but between every guest in the pictures as well.

Hayley + Ben Engaged!

Wanted to share a few images from Hayley + Ben’s lovely springtime e-session. Thanks to the hot weather, all the tree’s were in bloom about 4 weeks early. Super excited for their wedding at the Max M. Fisher music box in June! It’s one of our most favorite venues in Detroit.

Annie & Patrick – Cleveland Area Wedding at The Hunt Club

….Aaaaand we’re back!  We took a little time off to recharge the batteries.  What better way to return than with a post from Annie & Patrick’s beautiful Wedding that was held in Gates Mills, OH at The Hunt Club.  Such a beautiful location for an elegant wedding.  Annie & Patrick, however, stole the show!  Such a warm and genuinely sweet couple, they made it a treat to photograph them, their family and their event.  Thanks also goes out to Valarie Kirkbride from Kirkbrides Wedding Planning & Design for creating a beautiful event with an elegant Equestrian theme. We hope you enjoy their wedding day story.

Kendall & John – Colony Club Wedding Detroit

Kendall & John can be described with one word…FUN!  And they had so much of it on their wedding day.  They were immersed in all the moments of the day and we couldn’t help but be caught up in the moments also…which is what we do best.  The Colony Club looked absolutely amazing with all the beautiful color and light!  Did I mention light?  Yup. Lighting is such a crucial part of any wedding and we are big advocates for having our clients understand the beauty of professional lighting.  The results can be seen in these images…of course thanks to the crew at The Lighting Guy.  Also big thanks to Flourish Event Design for bringing all the details together beautifully.

We can’t wait to see Kendall & John again for her brothers wedding in December.  Another fun day will be had for sure!  Enjoy – Nate

Whitney & Mike – Wedding at Cranbrook House & Gardens

Nothing is better for a professional photographer than when clients ‘get it’.  And what I mean is that they understand the artistic perspective you work from, the creativity, and the large amount of work it takes to make those stunning images.  Now add to that a truly genuine, kind and wonderful couple and you get Whitney & Mike.

They had a charming outdoor affair at the beautiful Cranbrook House & Gardens.  We love photographing there…sprawling natural backdrops, beautiful architecture, inspiring light.  But amongst all that Whitney & Mike stood out!  Their love for each other and friends and family truly showed.  To top it off they scheduled a lot of time for us to create the images you see of them and the bridal party.  Perfection!  Enjoy & Share – Nate

Venue:  Cranbrook House & Gardens

Ceremony Music & DJ: The Panache Group

Bridal Gown: Winnie Couture

Caterer: Forte Belanger
