a girl in love photography


Photographing everywhere there is love and light | Detroit | Ann Arbor | Chicago & Worldwide

Bonsitu and John are married at their Ann Arbor home. Oromo and Hindu ceremonies with a Scandinavian good luck toast

Are these the best photos from Bon and Johns day, I don’t know, I’ve never taken so many images before and I don’t think I took one too many!  These tell a bit of the tale of their wedding day.  Friends and family all uniting in a true bringing in Bonsitu’s family Oromo (from the Horn of Africa) and Hindu traditions and Johns Scandinavian roots.  It was amazing.   Ana and Samantha from @twofootcreative were so on top of things the bride and groom could focus on the traditions and love and everything went off without a hitch!!  It was a specail day and beyond fun to photograph… the photos start with Bon getting ready, then her Oromo ceremony with the women bringing her to be wed and the men bringing the groom and then “negotiating” the deal.  The Hindu ceremony was about love and reverence and celebrated the parents, as well as the new family Bon and John, are creating!  Here is a bit of a taste of their fantastic day.

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.
