Anthony & Jenna :: Married // Detroit, MI Wedding Photography

This summer has been a busy one. I’m not going to pontificate at length over what you can clearly see was an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G Detroit wedding. I’m ready to get back to my edits, and you all

Nick & Kirstian Tie The Knot // GreenfieldVillage Wedding Photography

Legally, I can’t say much about this wedding. Since Nick is a secret agent (sort of true) and most likely is monitoring my internet and phone, I have to do this quickly. OK-ok — so, no

Peter & Jennifer :: Married // Ann Arbor and Plymouth, MI Wedding Photographer

Peter and Jen are just the sweetest people you could ever hope to work with. I had a wonderful time getting to them and their families when they were married at Grace Bible Church in Ann Arbor this

Lee & Michelle :: Married // Birmingham and Plymouth, MI Wedding Photographer

Lee and Michelle were an awesome couple to work with, and I’m so glad I got to be part of this wedding. The Inn at St. John is a beautiful venue, as always, but what stood out most was the

Avi & Liz :: Married // Southfield, MI Wedding Photographer

Talk about a family affair! Last month, I had the pleasure of photographing the intimate at-home wedding of Avi and Liz. It was a charming family event that went down right in Avi’s

Tim & Alex :: Married // Detroit, Michigan Wedding Photography

This was yet another one of those events that I really hope serves to set the tone for the 2013 season. Here are the ways this wedding owned it: Alex was just a stunning bride in every possible way,

Kyle & Katie’s Wedding // Detroit, MI Wedding Photographer

Spring is in the air, and it’s that March/April thaw that truly brings in the wedding season every year. This spring started with Kyle and Katie for me. I have so many photos that I want to

Vincent & Veronica :: Knot Tied // St. Clair Shores, Bloomfield Hills Wedding Photographer

Vinny and Ronnie topped off a small collection of my wife’s high school graduating class that I’ve had the pleasure of photographing. This made the proceeding somewhat familiar for me.

2012 Retrospective :: Weddings & Engagements

Whew! it was one heck of a year. I’ve put together a quick slideshow of some of my favorite memories from this wedding season. From Up-north to “the thumb”, from the west side to

Tim & Megan :: Tie The Knot // Southfield, MI Wedding Photographer

Tim and Megan’s wedding rounded out my year. It was a great time with lots of laughs, even if some of them were at my expense or as a result of the copious amount of goose poop we stumbled

Matt & Michelle :: Married // Clarkston, MI Wedding Photographer

I really like these guys. I suppose you could say, I like ALL of my clients. Because if I didn’t, who would really hire a grumpy anti-social guy to hang around on their wedding day? Haha,

Justin & Lyneah :: Married // Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti Wedding Photographer

This wedding was a real fun ride, from start to finish. We started in the salon, where Lyneah’s mother was in charge of the bridal hairdo. I’d say “brave lady”, but she owned

Chris & Megan :: Married // Ann Arbor, MI Wedding Photographer

Chris and Megan caught one of those days were the rain sort of chased us from one thing to the next. Luckily, with Pugs in tow, these newly-married dog lovers out ran the weather and put on a

Peter & Sarah :: Married // Farmington Michigan Wedding Photography

Sarah and I are both of a prestigious EMU pedigree. We seem to see eye-to-eye on good schools, as well as good pictures. In the company of their four children, Peter and Sarah were married in

Dan & Jen :: Married // Grosse Pointe Wedding Photography

Another special one for me. I worked for several years with Dan back in my days in the trenches of the corporate creative world. He was always a rational voice and hardworking guy, even at times

Eric & Jean :: Married // Farmington Hills, MI Wedding Photography

Eric and Jean had one of those weddings with the couple’s fingerprints all over it. Ok, maybe more Jean’s than Eric’s, but isn’t the bride always the boss when it comes to

Paul & Nicole :: Married // Mt. Clemens, MI Wedding Photography

Nicole and Paul were a tremendous amount of fun to work with this year. They’re these two genuinely happy, dedicated people that are just downright easy to be around. I swear, five minutes

Dave & Justine :: Married // Batavia, NY Wedding Photography

This wedding was a really special one for me. You see that blonde dude smiling above this text? That guy used sleep with his legs hanging off of the end of the worn, old corduroy couch in the living

Ross & Amanda :: Engaged // Grand Haven, MI Engagement Photography

Ross and Amanda drug me clear across the state for their engagement session. When I rolled into Grand Haven, the wind was ripping and the clouds were threatening. It didn’t look too friendly.

Brandon & Marianne ::Married // Rochester Hills Wedding Photography

I really enjoyed this wedding. It was a lot of fun hearing about the wild adventures of Marianne and Brandon. Tandem bicycle racing and sporadic trips to third world nations were just a few of

Aaron & Allyce :: Married // Essexville, MI Wedding Photography [ The Grand ]

I really could not be happier to have seen Aaron and Allyce married this summer. I met Aaron a while back when he was a student in one of the classes I was lecturing. It’s funny where my

Kyle & Ashley :: Married // Detroit, MI Wedding Photography

Kyle and Ashley did the Motor City Wedding thing in a big way. It all started at the Westin Book Cadillac hotel where all of the ladies and gentlemen of the bridal party assembled for this beautiful

John & Teresa :: Married // Harsen’s Island and Macomb, MI Wedding Photography

I’m not big on boats. That is to say, deep water is one of the few things that makes my skin crawl. With that embarrassing tidbit out of the way, let me profess to you that I had to drive my

Jeremy & Melissa :: Married // Ann Arbor, MI Wedding Photography [Cobblestone Farm]

Ok, so I’m using this blog post as a return to my commentary. I’ve had a lot of quiet posts lately, and that doesn’t mean that I haven’t had anything to say about my clients.

Jan & Fawn :: Married // Farmington Hills, MI Wedding Photography

What can I say about how much fun this wedding was, that the pictures won’t? Not much really. So skipping past my ramblings and scrolling down to the eye-candy might just be the wise decision

Jeff & Emily :: Married // Dearborn, MI Wedding Photography

So, Jeff and Emily had a wedding and I was there. Luckily, I suppose, considering I was the dude with the camera. The weather was mild (Michigan winter considered), the bride and groom were chill

Dave & Kelly :: Married // Muskegeon, MI Wedding Photographer

I was fortunate enough to be able to photograph Dave and Kelly’s wedding one snowy weekend in Muskegeon, MI. It was a high-energy, high-spirits group that really kept me on my toes. Which was
