Congratulations Jen and André! This gorgeous couple tied the knot on a beautiful yacht on the Detroit River! I cant begin to describe how amazing their day was! These two are so incredible and have the most loving family and friends! Here’s a few sneak peeks from today!
A handful of bridal party favorites from Chris' and Jess's lovely Black Barn Vineyard wedding! There were so many gorgeous magical moments! I can't wait to share more soon!

Just a quick sneak peek from today's incredible wedding celebration! Sarah & Patrick's day was simply gorgeous! I cannot wait to share more! To see more updates of this beautiful couple and their day be sure to like MLP on Facebook!
Heartfelt embraces, love stories, and laughter! Lisa & Brennan's day had it all! Their day was simply beautiful and such an honor to be a part of!
We arrived just in time to see Lisa all teary eyed as she sat down to read her love letter from Brennan and note from her second love...her cat (A.K.A. "Allie Cat"). Perfect timing just before makeup! Though, not even makeup could keep the tears at bay throughout the day for this sweet bride. All day long Brennan was so happy that he could not stop smiling!
Father Jim Shaver, knowing Brennan and Lisa well, led such a beautiful ceremony full of encouragement and blessing. After the ceremony, family and friends enjoyed cocktail hour at the Jackson Country Club, while the bridal party celebrated together on the party bus on their way to Art 634, Jackson's historic train station, & The Grand River Memorial City Park for some Jackson skyline shots. Brennan's brother (Best Man) and friends kept things pretty alive with lots of jokes and even a prank (See pictures below)!
DJ Matthew Wade kept everyone on their toes with an incredibly fun kissing couples game and impressive and hilarious reading of Brennan and Lisa's versions of their love story! After a spectacular dinner (which included delicious homemade Galumpkis made that morning by the Father of the Groom!) and dancing was under way we headed out on the golf course for some sunset pictures!
It was a true pleasure to be a part of this wedding. Everyone was so kind and thoughtful and we got to serve alongside a such spectacular professionals! I want to give a huge thank you to my assistant photographer Erica. You are AMAZING and a joy to work with! And big thank you to both Jenna and Spencer of Dream Real Video.

After meeting with Brennan and Lisa I simply cannot imagine one without the other! They are such an adorable couple and so in love! It was so easy to capture the chemistry between them because they have so much of it! I cannot wait to see them say their "I do's" and celebrate with them next spring! Here are some of my favorites from their engagement session. I hope they make you want to give a big hug to your own sweetheart!
Congratulations to this beautiful new married couple!
Chris and Shannon's day was celebrated with family and the closest of friends at the bride's home church. Her mom and sisters helped her get ready as she prepared to see Chris for their "First Look".
Their "First Look" was so adorable! Shannon tip toed from behind and could not stop giggling!
Mom was all choked up in her moment with Shannon before her dad walked her down the aisle. Her sister and close family friend played a beautiful instrumental rendition of "Tale As Old As Time" from Shannon's favorite disney movie "Beauty and the Beast".
Following the ceremony they held a dinner where friends and family together prayed a special blessing on the couple. Shannon and Chris spent time greeting everyone there while a game of He Said She Said was played and everyone took turns snuggling their sweet little baby girl. Dinner was incredible and great friends of theirs set up a spectacular photo-booth with a green screen!
After dinner we had time for more pictures of the bride and groom! And although it was pouring rain outside, the beautiful steel doors we had hoped to use were thankfully under a covered porch! Here are just a few favorites of the two of them!
So happy for you Chris and Shannon! It was an honor to be a part of your day! Your families are so sweet and you have such a precious little girl! God bless you both as you begin this beautiful journey as newlyweds!
And a special thanks to Ryan for helping out with lighting and to my wonderful assistant Erin! You are amazing!
As promised here is more of this beautiful couple engaged to be married next month!
We had the most perfect morning for pictures! It was so much fun getting this beautiful couple together with their sweet baby girl in all the spring flowers! Their little one is such a sweetheart and was mesmerized with the camera (or the silly noises I made for her)! This year has been filled with so many new adventures for these two: new jobs, new move, new milestones for their baby girl. So glad I could capture, not only their engagement, but also this beautiful time for them as a new family of three! Looking forward to celebrating their marriage and capturing their beautiful wedding day with all of their family soon!
Here's a sneak preview from today's engagement session! We had a beautiful morning for pictures! Excited to share more soon!
