It's Thursday, that means, it's time to tbt. This week, I'm going to throw it all the way back to October of last year, to Katie and Chris's wedding in Detroit. We walked around Eastern Market, the ceremony was on Belle Isle and then a dinner reception at Republic, which is housed in one of my favorite buildings in the city, the GAR. I loved their details, from flowers grown right in the city from Detroit Abloom to the groom's perfectly tailored suit from 1701 Bespoke, the day was intimate and beautiful, my favorite kind of wedding.
Losing my entire blog on my old website made me incredibly sad. It was 5+ years of showcasing my work, it was nice to be able to scroll back and see how far I've come, to check back in on moments at weddings and family sessions from when I first quit my last office job and decided to pursue photography full time. I'm going to start posting some of my older work alongside some of my newer work as a kind of a then/now project. I figure these posts would have a dual purpose, on one hand, all of you can see what I have been up to for the past 5 years. But, it's really for me, as a catalog of my greatest hits to look at when I start to doubt myself, which is becoming less often, thank goodness.
Let's start here, with Sarah and Martin, from their engagement session at Kensington with the birdies to their intimate wedding at a park in Farmington.
...and then came the wedding day. The ceremony didn't go as planned because a swarm of hornets decided to invade the area where everything was to take place. So, in the parking lot, Sarah and Martin got married, because when you're in love, that's what you do on your wedding day, you get married, hornets be damned, you say 'I do'!
I don't know that I'll ever update a blog consistently, but when I do post something new, I promise it will be beautiful and full of light, love and color. This wedding makes me so happy, I loved working with Ariana and Stephanie, their families and friends had amazing laughs and smiles, they were all so fun to photograph. It was a beautiful day in Ann Arbor!
