Whitney & Dustin's Detroit Engagement Session

I'm thrilled to share Whitney and Dustin's super sweet Detroit engagement session with you tonight. The pair, who knew each other in high school and fell in love a few years later, wanted to check out a favorite Louise Chen mural in addition to the Illuminated Mural and Belle Isle. We had a very windy day which made photos tricky, but we were patient and stuck with it. I'm amazed at how sweet Whitney is and I know she will be super fun to work with (not to mention GORGEOUS) on their wedding day in October at Pine Knob Mansion. Can't wait! Congratulations on your engagement, you two! I hope you enjoy my favorites! xoxo

Chris & Marley's Frutig Farms The Valley Wedding

Wedding season 2016 has begun and I got to kick off my season with Chris & Marley's beautiful Frutig Farms wedding at The Valley. You may remember them from their lighthearted Frutig Farms engagement session last summer. I consider myself very blessed to have a bride as sweet and laidback as Marley and I knew Chris and Marley's wedding day was going to be special! It was full of so many pretty little details like the birch arbor they were married under in their outdoor ceremony, their gorgeous DIY flowers, or the vintage furniture the guests lounged in. Marley was stunning in her dress and perfect little belt and I loved the bridesmaids' blush gowns and the snazzy khaki and blue that the groomsmen wore! Rain was predicted but our prayers were answered and it held off! We had the perfect day for photos. The rustic celebration was full of happy tears and lots of laughter, like how the pair got into a giggle fit during their ceremony or how Marley and her father burst into simultaneous tears upon seeing each other before he walked her down the aisle. Chris and Marley are simply too cute. Thanks for asking me to capture this super special time in your lives, you guys. I hope you enjoy some sneak peeks and congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Griffin! xoxo

David & Angela's Cranbrook Engagement Session

Oh my goodness! It's time! Time to share David and Angela's recent spring Cranbrook engagement session feature! We squeezed in an appointment over Easter weekend while the pair was in town from Virginia, where David is an Army officer and Angela works as a speech pathologist. Angela and David brought along their adorable pup, Lola, who made her grand entrance in their second set of photos. What a sweet little family. I'm so looking forward to David and Angela's October wedding at Clarkston's always gorgeous Oakhurst Golf & Country Club! Congratulations on your engagement, you two! xoxo

Jane's Beth El & Cranbrook Bat Mitzvah

What a busy weekend with not one but two bat mitzvahs! Check out sneak peeks from Jane's pre-service photos and her "Jane of the Jungle" themed bat mitzvah party! The magical vision became reality thanks to Jane's beautiful mom, Karen, planner, Lauren from Leave it to Lauren, and of course the always fabulous Barb of Mandell Display. Star Trax entertainers Dennis and Teddy kept Jane and her friends dancing and having fun all night. I'm so thankful I got to be a part of such a gorgeous night. Enjoy the sneak peeks! I look forward to sharing more. xoxo

LiLi's Shaarey Zedek & Baronette Hotel Bat Mitzvah

I'm so excited to share sneak peeks from LiLi's bat mitzvah this past weekend! We started off with her temple portraits at Shaarey Zedek last week and then she had her Instagram-themed party, Liligram, over the weekend at Novi's Baronette Hotel. It was so much fun! Josh from Star Trax kept the party going all night. LiLi and her family are total sweethearts and it was such a pleasure to work with them. I look forward to sharing more. In the meantime, enjoy these sneak peeks!
