Rosie & Ari Wedding {Kalamazoo, MI}

This past autumn, I had the pleasure of spending an entire day laughing (despite what you see in the first three portraits below) with an amazing couple: Ari and Rosie. They were married in Kalamazoo at WMU’s Kanley Chapel and their reception was held at Rose Street Market downtown.

Rosie and Ari’s ceremony was probably my favorite part of the day. It combined several cultural traditions, spiritual practices, and readings, all with terrific involvement by family and friends (the officiant was the bride’s sister, for one). In all, it’s clear that these two cherish their relationships. Be blessed, you two.

Below are a few highlights from the day.

One Shot – Union of Souls {Ann Arbor, MI}
Marshall and Tina's wedding in The Union at the University of Michigan was fantastic. After arriving home late last night, equipped with my "Sleep when you're dead" motto, I stayed up until all my memory cards had been downloaded onto my computer. With over 3,000 images and 75Gb worth of data generated yesterday, I cannot wait to get started before the dust settles (my online backup won't take as long that way :)). I want to start pushing out more images to this blog for people to see. I'm so happy it could start that habit with these two unbelievable people. Stay tuned. p.s. if you want to be able to look at an even larger size, che ...
Erik & Christina {Mackinac Island, MI}
My wife and I had a great time with Erik and Christina on their wedding day. The two were wed on a high bluff on Mackinaw island overlooking the ferry route and bridge (red circle in picture below). The wedding was quite small in terms of bridal party/guests (around 30 in all) but that only served to condense the feelings of love and appreciation between everyone. Kick back and enjoy these gorgeous details and picturesque locations. Head over to my facebook page and "like" it so that you can comment there on this same selection of images. Their full web album is here. Love these mossy rocks! After everyone got re ...
Nick & Abby Wedding {Flushing, MI}
  Nick and Abby are two wonderful people who have an entourage of strongly supportive friends and family. It was a pleasure to see the anticipation building throughout the morning and into the ceremony. These two were so happy to be in each other's arms the whole rest of the night, it really made my job easy. Let's take a journey through their day starting with the women. Before we get rolling, I want to give a shout-out to Thomas Wrench who was my second shooter on this day. Thanks for your great work, Thomas. Let us begin.   I think it's great that a y ...
