Uma and Nandini's Indian Wedding in Detroit, MI

I boarded a plane to head to Detroit to photograph Uma and Nandini's wedding when they announced on the speakers that is was going to be a bumpy ride! And boy was it a terrible flight. I thanked God when we landed and swore that I will drive to the next wedding, although I'm pretty sure that won't happen. But the flight quickly faded into a memory as the excitement of having the honor of photographing a beautiful friends wedding kicked in- Uma and her now husband Nandini. Uma is a fearless preacher and sincere friend who is liked by so many. The wedding was packed with family and friends literally from all over the world! From England to Africa and to iIndia- you name it and someone probably flew in from there. The most magical things is that the entire wedding was coordinated by her friends and Family! Uma showed some serious trust in the process, and the wedding came out beautifully. The wedding took place in the Ann Arbor Marriott at Eagle Crest. I loved that the ceremony site was situated amongst lush greenery including tall pine trees and open golf fields which was perfect for formals. Their Color scheme was Pink, Red and Gold with beautiful rose floral arrangements draping the mandap and reception hall.


Check out the beautiful Ceremony stage! We want to wish Nandini and Uma an amazing journey together as husband and wife

Lauren and Tom's Wedding at the Reserve

Meeting Lauren while photographing her client's wedding a year ago was such a joy. Lauren is an amazing wedding planner! Fast forward a year and I'm on a flight to Detroit to photograph her and Tom's wedding at The Reserve. in Bermingham  

Benjamin joined me as my second shooter and the day started at the beautiful Townsend Hotel for their getting ready pictures. The hotel is located adjacent to a beautiful park where we held their first look.

I loved working with Lauren and Tom. Lauren is the kindest perfectionist that you will meet. Her taste is elegant and it really shows in her selections for her own wedding decor. I loved the rich tones which complemented the classic venue. The Reserve was designed to reflect Meadow Brook Hall and other manors found in and around Birmingham and Bloomfield Hills. The hall features a gorgeous stone fireplace- perfect for family formals!


We want to wish Lauren and Tom huge congratulations on such a wonderful wedding!
