Detroit Athletic club wedding: Alison & Michael

7.9.18 - weddings by Kristin G.

I had been looking forward to shooting this wedding for some time as I absolutely adore this family! I love Alison’s contagious, mega-watt smile and her super FUN personality! As soon as I walked into her parent’s home to begin shooting for the day, all I heard were giggles coming from the kitchen and I knew it was going to be an incredible day. The kitchen was filled with mimosas, Instax polaroids and tiny pictures of the groom on every bridesmaid’s fingernail. Hilarious. Alison soon donned her gorgeous gown, which drew some tears from her sweet family+friends, and I am still obsessed with the incredible clutch she chose for the day! We then headed to the Detroit Athletic Club, where a very handsome Mike was waiting for their first look. Mother Nature was not being overly cooperative as it began to sprinkle, but the guys powered through and the girls huddled together under the front awning. There wasn’t anything that could bring down the happy vibes of this day! After some portraits, it was time to say their vows at the always stunning Sweetest Heart of Mary Church and it was back to the DAC for dinner+dancing! I always get teary when the toasts get emotional and it was so heart-warming to see Mike’s reactions during the heartfelt words from his new family and best man. Larry Lee & The Back in the Day Band kept the dance floor rockin' all night long. I wish you two nothing but a lifetime of happiness! Congratulations! xo

Ann Arbor Engagement Session: Katie & Victor

7.3.18 - engagements by Courtney

I love this couple so much! Not only are Katie and Victor super cute, kind and laid-back but they are one of the most well-travelled couples I have photographed. They have already lived and travelled around the world (they got engaged in Italy) and they are only just getting started.
We met for their engagement session on the University of Michigan Campus where their love story began. It was on and off raining the entire time which you would never know because their smiles were so bright. They did so great and I’m super excited for their wedding day and to meet all of their guests from around the globe. It will definitely be an event to remember.

St. Clair Shores Engagement Session: Karen & Keith

7.3.18 - engagements by Kristin G.

I am so, so happy that Karen+Keith took me up on the engagement session as I had such a fun time walking around their local park with them in St. Clair Shores. I always tell my couples, if nothing else, think of this as the dress rehearsal for your wedding day. This gives us an hour to get to know each other, talk about posing and your likes/dislikes — and then I get to prove to you how incredible you look in your portraits before the big day! These two admitted to me that they do not love to be in front of the camera, but you would never know it! They easily fell into a rhythm and you can tell that they vibe off of each other’s energy. Keith has this calmness about him and Karen’s smile is so warm and welcoming — they are a perfect duo. Spending the evening with them made me even more excited to shoot their fun wedding next summer! A big congratulations to these two! xo

Birmingham Country Club Wedding: Caroline & Sean

6.28.18 - weddings by Kristen Taylor

The weather did not cooperate on Caroline and Sean’s wedding day, but that definitely did not keep them from having an AMAZING wedding! These two are such a cute couple, and their first look moment was super sweet and adorable. Caroline looked stunning in her sleeveless gown, and Sean looked really dapper in his tux. We did their photos of them and their awesome bridal party inside of the Birmingham Country Club before we headed over to Northbrook Presbyterian Church for their ceremony. It was a very sweet ceremony, and then we rushed back over to the country club for their reception. The rain stopped for a bit, so fortunately we were able to take some outdoor photos then. Their decor was perfection, with their colorful flowers by Bellisario Florist and their elegant cake by Birmingham Country Club. A lot of their vendors were the same as the ones chosen a few years ago by good friends of theirs, including the awesome planning team of the China Closet, and I loved getting to see one of my past couples there (shout out to Karen and Jourdan!). During the speeches, I loved hearing the story of how Caroline and Sean met - Caroline’s dad saw Sean in an elevator wearing a hat for the same team he loves and her dad thought he could be perfect for his daughter, so they basically hunted him down, found him, they instantly hit it off, and the rest is history. It was clear how much fun these two have together as they belted out and danced to awesome music during their reception, and Sean surprised Caroline with the best 90’s rap performance ever! Congrats to this awesome couple!

Grosse Pointe Engagement Session: Brittney & Shannon

6.28.18 - engagements by Kristin G.

It was my first time shooting at the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House and if every single bride+groom could get portraits done here, I would appreciate it. This location was a DREAM and then couple that with two stunning people in love, and well, I’ll just let these portraits speak for themselves. There really is not anything that I do not love about this session, especially how stellar both Brittney+Shannon looked with their outfit selections and how easy they were to photograph (!). I had the best time wandering around the premises with them during golden hour and they were down for anything, which I obviously always adore! Shooting their engagement portraits made me so excited to shoot their wedding in just a couple of months! Congratulations, you two! xo
