Anna and Noah . Misty Vally Wedding . Ann Arbor, MI . Part One


Anna and Noah’s wedding was a perfect example of planning and pacing.  They didn’t want their day to be “about” taking photographs, but they wanted to be sure that the wedding was photographed and all the images and moments they wanted to remember could happen organically. What they did is they planned for time.  Down time, family photo time, portrait time, bridal party time, ceremony time.  The schedule rolled out in a relaxed paced way and the photos, there are plenty, reflect that.  While at the same time most of the actual events were shot candidly, there was no rushing from place to place and this allowed everyone to enjoy being with each other and stay mindfully in each moment.  I’m going to share their images in two posts!  The dancing and reception will be shared on Monday but for now the getting ready, first looks, portraits, ketubah and ceremony as well as a great collection of details pulled together with grace and style and shot magnificently by Kerri.



the rest of this amazing day will be posted on Monday!

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
