Molly and Matt get married . Colony Club . Detroit, MI

I’m super selfish, I have to admit it because I know part of the reason I don’t share as much as I should on the blog is that I hate to let the images go. I covet them. Matt is the brother of Kelly and officiated Kelly and Brandon’s wedding, which I photographed (see it’s awesomesauce here) and I met Matt and Molly and they are just as wonderful as they look. I couldn’t wait for the wedding, and then the day was, well, you’ll see, just perfect and I sent them the photos a few weeks ago but I selfishly kept them to myself… It’s like letting them go, and I hate choosing the “best” I love them all. I love every single laugh and each dance move caught. But I can’t keep something this glorious hidden, so I got it together and made a blog post.

A few things: Molly’s dress was amazing, I will get the maker I always forgot to ask. They read their own vows and they were beautiful. Their cat was there in pillow form and made it in a fair amount of photos and the aged whiskey barrel was there for guests to sign and to hold a photo of Molly’s father who was there in spirit. It was so great to see all the guests sign it and reminisce and talk about him as well. It really made him part of the day. Great dancers, lovely friends, and an amazing family. Thank you both for letting me be there to capture your wedding 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.
