Laura and Fabien Get Married . Dance Filled Wedding . Ann Arbor, MI

Most of my work is found through recommendations and referrals, word of mouth is what it’s called.   My favorite is photographing family weddings.  Catie and Ryan were married 2 years ago and this summer I  photographed Laura and Fabien’s wedding.   (Laura was even there for some of Caite and Ryan’s engagement session!) We started with the guys, getting ready in the newly designed @graduate downtown Ann Arbor and then out to Laura’s parents, which is where we were two years ago!  This time Dad’s tears didn’t surprise me, but I did start to tear up a bit myself! The day was just as beautiful, with a bit more dancing :) Choosing the photos for the post here I was again struck by the loving kindness and care Laura and Cait’s family express to each other and everyone around them.  I got to know Fabien’s family, just a bit, and they are so warm and kind, so I chose more family photos then I might usually and as you look maybe you will notice the hands, reaching out in image after image to express love.

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.
