When Liv and Brian reached out to have me be their wedding photographer, I about died. Partially, because MIAMI but mostly because they are artists. Everything was stunning and they inspired me to be creative. For their ceremony and reception, they fused a rustic style with a tropical setting at Miami Central Park. The day was full of real emotion and I found myself singing songs along side them during their ceremony.
There are two types of grooms. There are the kind that cry when they see their love walking down the aisle, and then there are guys like Luke- the kind that smile like they contain the sun.
Tori and Luke have been waiting since preschool for this day... ok not exactly, but they really did meet in preschool. Their wedding ceremony took place at one of their favorite places on earth: Boyne Mountain. They have been visiting with their families for years and have condos on the same street. When I arrived the night before, they showed me around like they were introducing me to a beloved friend. That night, they took me up to the top of the chairlift and danced over the northern Michigan "skyline." I will share photos of that in a separate post later, and it was magical.
This was my first downtown Kalamazoo elopement style session. I've done tons of engagements around the Bronson Park area, but golly, there's something about a wedding dress and all that classic architecture that made me forget my super bold photographer thing and lean into something a little more soft and fresh.
