Danielle & Brian's Wedding

posted on: September 12, 2006

What a fun group of people! Usually I only get to hang out with the ladies for the getting ready moments but this time I had the privilege of hanging out with the guys before the ceremony and captured some awesome shots. Getting ready moments are my favorite part of the wedding day because I feel like I have the most freedom to be creative with candid images. I absolutely love these shots... inspired by Quentin Tarantino, and if you're up for a challenge take a guess at the movies and scenes they were inspired by....

I think I also love the getting ready moments because it's one of the last chances I get to be really close to the bride & groom without getting in the way of anyone who wants to spend time with them, and it allows me to get some great detail shots.

Plus, the anticipation and nervousness before the ceremony make for great emotional moments with family and friends, and genuine moments like these are what I absolutely live for when I photograph weddings.... man I love this job!

Their ceremony was held at St. John Vianney Catholic Church in Shelby Twp, MI. What a beautiful place to photograph a wedding! The natural skylights and freedom to move around allowed me to get great ceremony shots. I wonder what Danielle was thinking in that second shot....

After the ceremony, we headed to the beautiful Heritage Gardens for a few shots with the wedding party. While I don't mind creating portraits, my favorite images are definitely the ones that happen in-between the set-up shots!

By the time we got to the reception at Creek Center in Armada, MI, everyone was ready to party! Can you imagine what these twins will be like when they're teenagers?!

I think the guests had a lot of fun with the polaroid guestbook, and Danielle & Brian ended up with an instant scrapbook!

Check out the hot pink frosting on their cake!

There are so many more great images, but I'm afraid you'll just have to watch the slideshow by clicking on any image to see the rest! Congratulations Danielle & Brian!
