Mike & Amy {Wedding}

I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day to celebrate Amy & Mike’s wedding last Saturday. The weather was a photographer’s dream and the location was beautiful. With family from all over Michigan, they decided to celebrate the day somewhere in the middle. They chose Cadillac, having their reception at the beautiful Caberfae Ski Resort. The colors were awesome and love was in the air. I hope you’re enjoying your honeymoon in Jamaica!  And may God bless you both as you begin your lives together!

Wedding Themes: Purple

This year the dominant color I have seen at weddings is purple.  I’ve seen a lot of eggplant and really dark purple, also dusty purple and dark blue.  Enjoy a few purple themed pics today!

Wedding Themes: Orange

Every year it seems that one specific color dominates the wedding scene.  Last year, 2010, it was orange.  I loved seeing that awesome pop of color throughout the wedding season, it always looked great pictures.  I thought I would share a few of the pictures today.  Enjoy!

Ray & Rosa {Wedding}

Ray and Rosa, first I want to say thank you so much for choosing me to be a part of your special day. I believe it was meant to be when you found me through Google. The love you share with each other is inspiring and it extends from you both to everyone around you. I’ve never seen a closer family and I completely fell in love with all of you by the end of the night. I’ve decided I want to be a Minerva sister too ☺ And even though the day did not go completely as planned (thank you Lord for the gazebo, it wasn’t much protection, but it was enough), your love for each other was the glue that held it all together. May God bless you both as you begin this awesome journey together as husband and wife. Enjoy!

Apple Green Wedding Details

I love wedding details!  They are a favorite part of my day at every wedding.  Saturday’s wedding had an apple green color scheme, with green, black and white as the main colors of the day.  Following are some of the detail shots from the wedding.  These colors were perfect for a hot July outdoor wedding.  All I can say is the attention to detail was stunning!  Enjoy.

Wedding Details Photography

In celebration of the wedding I am photographing today, I thought it would be fun to talk about wedding detail photography.  When I got married (wow, 15 years ago this year) detail photography was not very popular.  You might have a shot of the cake, but not much else.  With wedding photography today, detail shots are very important to brides and grooms.  I set aside specific time at every wedding to shoot details.  These include the dress, shoes, veil, rings, bouquet/flowers, table settings, favors and anything else that catches my eye.  I actually love this part of the day as it allows me to be creative and I can relax while doing it.  You don’t have to worry about someone blinking while shooting the shoes.  Also, for anyone that wants to submit their wedding to any sort of publication to try to have it published, editors always want to see a lot of detail shots showcasing your wedding day style and theme.  Enjoy a few shots I’ve collected over the years!
