Wedding

Veronica + David

Ohhh Veronica and David. What can I say about these two? They are BEST friends, love each other fiercely, and are crazy adorable together. They love Game of Thrones. Their bridal party was chock full of life-long friends. Flower crowns, fall weather, and a surprise visit from a childhood pet? Cue the tears, you guys. I mean, I normally tear up at least once (okay, twice) at a wedding. But this one ...

2017 Favorites

Well you guys, we did it. We finished out another year. Who can believe 2018 is just hours away? The photos below are some of my favorites from all my weddings, family sessions, we-got-a-dog sessions (more of these please), and engagement sessions. Not all of the photos are what you might expect to see in a blog post like this. They aren't my favorites because they're perfectly posed/shot/focus ...

Kinsey + Daniel

Kinsey + Daniel are crazy cute, amirite or amirite? They wanted a downtown engagement shoot, and told me they wanted to show off Detroit's architecture. Well hellooooo there. If you know me, I'm all about clean lines, and I love anything Mid Century or Art Deco. Those angles just get me every time. We hit Wayne State's campus to see the McGregor Memorial Conference Center, which never disappoints. ...

Anna + Chuliang

Anna + Chuliang are head over heels in love, and you can feel it in these photos. Their wedding party was so fun, the florals were so beautiful, and their venue (Fredrick Meijer Gardens) was the bomb. Seriously, can we talk about the yellow chrysanthemum installation? Killing it! Their ceremony and reception were so them. All the place cards were in the form of an Origami swan made by Chuliang him ...

Jackie + Mike

Jackie and Mike are seriously incredible human beings. Their love for each other is out of this world, and that makes my job so ridiculously easy. When I first met them last year, they told me their reception venue was a golf course, but they didn't want their photos to look like it was a golf course. Right then and there I knew we would get along quite nicely. Jackie and Mike climbed thru grass, ...

Minimal + Edgy Styled Shoot

My favorite styled shoot I've done to date? This one right here. My brain child, coupled with the RIDICULOUS talent of the lovely ladies that I hand picked to work with, resulted in this stunning shoot. I first came to Miranda of Spoke Events with the idea for this minimal, kind of edgy shoot, with lush florals. I wanted lots of lines brought in, with natural light, and a gold/black/white kind ...

Engagement

Julia + Joel

These two are giving me all the heart eyes possible. Julia + Joel are getting married in January at The Rustbelt Market in Ferndale, and I can't wait to get to hang out with them again. They are clearly MFEO (made for each other). Sleepless in Seattle reference there, if you didn't catch it. We walked around West Village, visited one of Ouizi's many stunning murals, and even found a tiny forest ...

Hannah + Jake

Hannah + Jake are the most perfect little love birds. I had a seriously hard time narrowing down which photos to post. These two babes are so in love. The weather was perfect for an outdoor ceremony, and for the fireworks they shot off at their kiss! I can't handle it. Hannah has such good taste, so everything was on point. From her DRESS, to the florals, to the tiny desserts (the one I grabbed wi ...

Veronica + David

Last night I got to hang out with Veronica + David in Clawson. They showed me around their little town, including Dairy-O, which was packed, so it must be good. I mean, they have a Lucky Charms flurry. Sign me up! Then we went back to their cute little house and hung out around the fire with their dog, Jupiter. She's the sweetest and I wish I could be kissed by her every day. No but really, she ...
