Amelia's West Bloomfield Temple Israel Bat Mitzvah

I had so much fun the other night photographing the second mitzvah in the Kaftan family with my sweet friend, Esme McClear. Amelia was so sweet, smart, and fun to work with and she had a beautiful party at Temple Israel after her havdalah service. Check out some of my favorites! xoxo

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
