I give Ken and Brittney credit for being the most enduring bride and groom to date. As it got closer and closer to Brittney and Ken's wedding day, the forecast was looking less and less optimistic. And for the wedding day, Ken and Brittney had to put up with on and off rain showers from beginning to end. However, this did not slow them down or stop them from doing the outdoor portraits and ceremony they desired. We started at the MSU botanical gardens in Lansing, Michigan and then made our way to Howell to a lakeside park for more portraits. Even with uncooperative weather, Ken and Brittney still had a beautiful day to remember and we enjoyed being a part of it.

In a couple days, my adorable cousin James will turn 3 months old. It was so unbelievably fun to see him again and take some portraits of just how much he has grown! At 3 months, we are starting to see babies smile and talk, and James definitely did both! We were also able to capture some family pictures of Wayne, Liz, and James together. It is always a great time to visit with family and today was no exception. I can't wait to continue to watch James grow into a handsome young man.
Thomas and Courtney lucked out with a very pretty and sunny day for their wedding. We started off the day at Studio 9 in Sterling Heights, Michigan. However, a sunny day in May can sometimes mean a sweltering day, and that's exactly what is was! In fact, it was so hot that I'm sure Courtney felt like she was melting! But, with the help of her personal fan, she was able to handle the heat; even though the church, National Shrine of the Little Flower, did not have the air condition working well! Throughout the rest of the night, Courtney and Tom had a wonderful time. The prettiness of the day made for some stunning and dramatic images; and because Courtney is so creative and detail oriented, not a single detail was missed. In fact, she had crafted or arranged almost every decoration in detail at the reception. We wish you the very best, Tom and Courtney, and thank you for choosing us as your wedding photographers!
We've known Sophie for many, many, years and were thrilled when she called us up and said she HAD to have us as her wedding photographers! Jeff is a youth pastor at Rochester First Assembly, and Sophie is a very talented hair stylist. A fact demonstrated by her own hair she styled for her wedding. The day ran very smoothly; and even though there were threats of rain, the skies held back all day. The reception was probably the highlight of the night, besides the fact that Jeff and Sophie are married now of course. The dance floor was always packed and could never seem to hold everyone! There were more flips, twirls and spins than any wedding we have photographed before! And, believe it or not, without a single drop of alcohol! There were also some very personal touches during the reception like a song sang to Sophie by her brothers and a special choreographed dance as her daddy daughter dance. Sophie and Jeff's friends and family were such a blast to be around and we really enjoyed the night!
Kristen is another Franklin Road Christian School graduate. We met up with her and had an outdoor session with her in the fall at first. However, Kristen was extremely involved in basketball at Franklin Road, and wanted some images that captured her love of the game. So, we held another mini session for her at the school to showcase her favorite sport. We had a great time working in the gym to capture some dramatic images of Kristen and her basketball.
