{laura&bernie} married! – 6.22.21

Back again, and so soon! This amazing Californian couple flew in for the week before their wedding and that’s why their engagement session happened so quickly before their wedding (not that I’d mind shooting a session in California!) And I’m so honored to now show a preview of their Saginaw, MI wedding!

We started the day worried that some thunderstorms could potentially spoil the whole day – but as luck would have it, they ended up with one of the most beautiful days of the month. They had a full gorgeous catholic service full of love, joy, and celebration of their union.

Then, the celebration moved to their reception which included some fantastic hand made peacocks, stunning table decor, and a photobooth to boot! And check out that introduction to their reception space – FIREWORKS!?! Yeah – that party was bumping! Check out these images y’all. Stun.ning. Good luck you two and enjoy your time in Cali!!


{laura&bernie} engaged! – 6.22.21

Hello again! I hope everyone’s been enjoying this fantastic weather! Not too hot but finally summer mood. Wedding season is beginning to kick into gear, which means that I get to flex my creative muscles with some gorgeous engagement shoots first! To start us off this fine June, we have Laura and Bernie (who’s wedding you’re going to also see up here within just a few days!) to grace the blog this morning!

We shot at Dow Gardens and my inspiration for this place started right out the front door. This place has small nooks and crannies that I could probably shoot all day in one space without even seeing 90% of the rest (Although we made some great ground cover on the gorgeous trail! These two were lovely and up for trying all the fun goofy things I asked them do do, including acting like a dinosaur and a quick request for Bernie to now channel his inner Jeff Goldblum. Spoiler alert, he rocked it.

Anyway, here’s only a small fraction of the good stuff we shot – it was incredibly hard to choose images for this preview! Catch you all soon this Sunday for the grand celebration of your marriage!!
