Katie & Josh’s Belle Isle Engagement Photos

Katie and Josh are such a sweet couple! They came into town from Chicago for their engagement session, and Katie wanted to show Josh some of her favorite places in her hometown of Detroit. We, of course, went to Belle Isle for their engagement photos. Sunset Point, the Casino, and the Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory were some of the few places we went. Katie and Josh are so much fun, and very much in love! We are very excited for their August wedding at the Detroit Athletic Club!

Shyla & Ira’s Multi-Cultural Wedding at the Red Tail Farm

Shyla and Ira had such a joyful wedding celebration. They had two ceremonies, celebrating the cultures and the heritage of both of their families- Ira has Haitian Catholic roots and Shyla comes from an Indian Hindu background. The marriage of cultures was as much a part of their celebration as the marriage of this very in-love couple!  Their Catholic wedding ceremony took place at St. Mary’s Student Parish in Ann Arbor. We then went to the rustic and charming Red Tail Farm in Dexter, where they held their Hindu ceremony and reception. Everything was wonderfully planned, down to the last detail, by Rupali Bedi of Utsav Planners. It was such a pleasure working with Rupali and her staff! Guests had so much fun wandering the grounds, playing games, dancing, and eating Achatz Pies! It was an amazing venue for an amazing wedding. Shyla kept saying she had to pinch herself, that the day was so perfect and lovely. Shyla and Ira are a wonderful couple and their wedding was warm, loving and so much fun! So happy we had the opportunity to work with them!

Becky & Shane’s Classic Fall Wedding

Becky & Shane had an amazing wedding day! Fall colors just started to turn and the weather was perfect! Their classic style had dashes of old-school glamour, with Becky’s birdcage veil and fantastic ballgown dress. Shane even changed into a white dinner jacket for an extra touch of class! Shane started out the day with all of his guys at John Cowley & Sons Pub in downtown Farmington, with a round of drinks for good luck. Their wedding at St Pauls’s Lutheran Church in Farmington Hills was so touching and joyful. Their reception followed in Livonia, at the Italian-American Banquet & Conference Center. We shot alongside Two Penny Productions, an awesome team of wedding videographers. They had such a fun dancing crowd, and the evening peaked with the Leben-Hoch, a German tradition where the newlyweds are tossed into the air on chairs, wearing colorful hats and serenaded by the guests in German. It was so fun! Becky & Shane are a great couple that are so happy together and wonderful to work with!
