An intimate Halloween Wedding . Ann Arbor, Mi,

I got a call a week before Halloween and Chantel explained to me she wanted to have a sweet, simple little halloween wedding and she wasn’t sure I’d “do it” because it “wasn’t a big deal wedding.”

I have always wanted to photograph a wedding on halloween, and I promptly told her that there was no such thing as a “no big deal” wedding. There are smaller weddings, simple weddings, grand event weddings, theme weddings, intimate weddings, courthouse weddings, but every single one of these weddings all share the moment when two partners look at each other and say “i do” and make that promise to spend a lifetime together.

That is after all what weddings are about, and Chantel and Tom’s wedding, small though it may have been was filled to the brim with the tears, the love and that moment of “i do” that makes a wedding what it is.

I was so honored to be chosen to be there, just because something isn’t big doesn’t mean it isn’t a big deal, love is love and these two blew me away with their love and the love of their beautiful family!

See for yourself!!

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.
