If you’re dreaming of a Detroit summer wedding that mixes cityscape with landscape and timeless with elegant, this one is about to give you some serious inspiration…
July 13, 2019
These two worked together and fell in love during a breakroom lunch hour. The cutest office romance story! Who knew during that fateful meeting in the breakroom that they would one day be walking down the aisle on this absolutely gorgeous July day?!
As a photographer, I’m tasked with photographing someone’s biggest day in a way that reflects who they are. It’s a form of storytelling. What tone should be conveyed, what are the priority shots and what do you want your future generations to feel when they look at your wedding photos?
In order to make sure I capture someone’s wedding in a way that is meaningful to them, I ask the following questions:
Because wedding photos are so distinctly personal and no two weddings are the same, I want to make sure my photography reflects your own love story and personalities.
When I asked these questions to Jeff and Nakea, they said that they wanted their wedding day to look formal but feel casual. They wanted it to appear timeless and elegant, but still be unique to who they are and feel very natural. With the combination of Belle Isle greenery, downtown Detroit murals (thank you to Jeff for getting us exclusive access to this gorgeous private rooftop!), blush tones and rose golds, I think all of their intentions are conveyed so beautifully through their photographs. Check out the photos below to see their incredible day…
Jeff and Nakea, thank you so much for letting me witness and photograph your timeless, elegant and beautiful wedding day. Wishing you so much happiness as you enter this new chapter of life!
