Everything about Matt and Jen’s wedding day was SO colorful! They really did a wonderful job in incorporating their rainbow color scheme into every single element of their day. It was so fun and beautiful.
From the bride on her and Matt’s favorite part of the day:
“Our favorite memory was walking into the Lafayette Grande and seeing how beautiful everything looked. Every detail was fun, colorful and perfect.”
Congratulations Matt and Jen! We had so much fun photographing you guys and your beautiful day!
Jason and Randen had a beautiful wedding ceremony and reception at the Lazy J Ranch in Milford, Michigan.
We started the day getting ready with the girls. All of her bridal accessories complimented her dress beautifully and fit her color scheme to a tee! All of the bridesmaids even spent the morning getting ready in adorable pink pj shortie sets.
The outdoors surrounding the Lazy J Ranch were beautiful and Jason and Randen’s decor included really cute touches that made it feel cozy including the white curtains with lanterns on their alter and a chalkboard sign reading “Can we get a witness?” directing guests to their seats.
A friend of Jason and Randen’s lent them an ultra cool bright red vintage Chevrolet truck that we had tons of fun photographing with out in the field!
Jason and Randen’s mix of rustic and vintage decor for their reception was gorgeous and really transformed the inside of the barn. The mix of gold, cream and pink tones really shined against the rustic barn wood.
Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Wilkinson! Your wedding was just as beautiful as the both of you are. Thanks for sharing it with us. 🙂
John and Jennifer are an amazing couple that we had the opportunity to get to know. They have a love for each other that is so strong, it can be seen with just a simple glance. Their wedding day was amazing. It started out with a beautiful morning with the girls getting ready at one of the bridesmaid’s houses. Jennifer had every detail planned out. It was perfect.
On our way to meet the guys for John and Jennifer’s first look, it started to rain. And it rained hard. Some people would have been in a panic at this point. All of the pictures were planned for outside at a beautiful park. But they both kept their cool. It didn’t matter about the rain. We waited it out and soon enough, it stopped. Then it was time for the fun to begin. I absolutely love their first look moment which you will see below.
The ceremony was amazing. I absolutely adore photographing in old churches. And it doesn’t get much better than this one!
The reception was nothing short of a blast. The father of the groom has been in a band for years and they were awesome! Between the band, choreographed dancing from the wedding party and the sparklers, I will always remember this wedding.
Here are a few of my favorites to tell the story of the day! – Jenay

Becca and Joe are such an awesome couple. They are goofy, adorable and totally in love with each other. I had the pleasure of getting to know them very well when I photographed a destination for one of their good friends on a Caribbean cruise this past December. I know, my job is horrible ;o) We had so much fun zip lining with this duo and getting a true feel for their personalities.
After the cruise we got together for their engagement session which was nothing short of steamy and romantic. Joe was a big trooper as we hiked through a park on a very windy day to capture an amazing story of their love.
It wasn’t long after that, their wedding day was upon us. The ceremony and reception were held at the beautiful Longacre House in Farmington Hills. This was my first time shooting there and let me tell you, it was love at first site. This venue is small, intimate and has so much charm! Sara and I were in photographer’s heaven! Not only do they have beautiful gardens and a gorgeous stone wall, but if you walk down a hill in the backyard it’s as if you stepped in to an enchanted forest. Don’t even get me started on the bridal suite!
Becca is a total babe and rocked her role as a bride ten fold. She was a show stopper in her gorgeous gown from Gina’s Bridal Boutique in Milford, MI. I always love working with them! I also loved all the DIY details from her headband, to her bridesmaids sashes on their dresses. Everything was perfect!
Enough talk, here are some of my favorites from Becca and Joe’s wedding shot by Sara and I!
This wedding was nothing short of a Grand Slam in my opinion. The bride hit a home run with every single detail and didn’t miss a thing. There were so many details I wanted to make sure made it into this blog post that I even needed a seventh inning stretch during the prep for this post. Okay, enough with the baseball lingo (mostly because I don’t know much more, but I do have to give myself a pat on the back for all that I did incorporate!)
Candace and Mike live in Colorado so we did most of our communicating over the phone. It always makes it a little more challenging when you can’t chat face-to-face, but it was so worth it. I have been looking forward to this wedding ever since the initial emails where Candace gave me a description of her vision.
We started the day at the beautiful Atheneum hotel in Detroit. Matching robes, a million details and a gorgeous bride – yup, it was a great start to the day! Head over the the grooms room and we have bow ties and baseball themed cufflinks. Hello, photographer’s dream!
The ceremony and reception where both held at the ever-so-charming Gem Theatre in Detroit. During cocktail hour, the bridal party, Sara and I all headed out on the town. Lucky for us, there was even a Tiger’s game happening so we had a tun of fun with sports fans and photos at Comerica Park.
I could go on and on about what I loved but I think I am going to stop there and let the pictures speak for themselves… Play ball! – Jenay
This gorgeous lady decided to give her hubby-to-be a gift that would keep on giving. She came to the studio before her wedding to do a bridal boudoir session and give him a “For Your Eye’s Only” album as his wedding day gift. As he opened his gift the morning of the wedding, his jaw dropped and he was speechless. I believe he was pretty excited about his album and more excited that this beautiful lady was about to give him her forever.
Here are a few favorites!
All images were approved by the bride and groom before posting.
Thanks so much for letting me help you create a super sassy wedding day gift, Mrs. K! – Jenay
Vivian is perfection – that is the best way to describe her. Look at that hair, those lips, that sweet little face. She is such a beauty! Her parents are some of my best friends and I couldn’t be happier for them to welcome this sweet little girl into their family! Can’t wait to watch her grow!

Dolly and Josh are fabulous people who I had the pleasure of working with last year for their wedding. Most of the time, once a wedding is over, I won’t see a couple again until they have a baby. Sometimes it happens quickly and sometimes it takes a few years. I love that this couple decided to have me come to their new home and document a new chapter of their life before they decided to bring a baby in to the world.
This couple is headed to Morocco soon for their long awaited honeymoon. Obviously I am trying to convince them that they should have me come along for that adventure too ;o) Dolly said that once they get back from their honeymoon it’s “game on” for baby! Can’t wait!!
Here are a few of my favorites from their “New Home” session!
Thank you Dolly and Josh, for allowing me in to your home to capture these wonderful memories for you! I look forward to working with you again soon! – Jenay
This little lady is so special to me. She is not only my niece but one of my best friends. Along with her beauty and being a natural in front of the camera, she is so sweet, caring and will move mountains one day. But for now, she will enjoy being a six year old!
Love that little sister, Sloane, even made it in to the session!
