Farmington Hills Backyard Wedding

From a large gathering at Detroit’s Shinola Hotel to a backyard wedding in Farmington Hills – Brad and Renee transitioned their plans with grace and kindness. The two of them opted to get ready at the place where the wedding was going to be – and they got ready together, Renee straightening Brad’s tie before he went out on the terrace with a glass of wine to wait for her to come out in her dress. It was a beautiful intimate day and the weather was perfect. It was the kind of summer evening where you realize it’s the first night you haven’t sweat from humidity – and the sunlight that hits the trees is piercing. I’m so thankful to have been a part of this day. And a huge shoutout to Miranda of Spoke Events for pivoting and making this such a beautiful event.

Intimate Lowell Wedding in Fallasburg Park

Another incredible wedding that looked different than it was planned. A smaller guest list, a new location and a different day - but finding ways to make it joyful was abundantly clear. Instead of just two toasts - they had anyone who wanted to say some words join in. Instead of sitting and talking with…

Intimate Indianapolis Wedding

I’ve been thinking a lot about the word PIVOT lately. How - in mid March we all completely had to pivot the way we moved about the world. Kids came home from school, spare bedrooms were turned into offices, health care workers had to put their lives on the line. For the most part -…

Facetime Portraits – Reflections

I’ve learned a lot in the last three weeks sitting behind my computer hitting a tiny white button. In 3 weeks I’ve Facetimed with 105 different groups of people. From as close as a block away to as far away as Australia - I’ve done my best to document what this pandemic “looks” like. What…
