Connected. Just one word I would use to describe Jenny and Paul. They are friends first and share an amazing love together. Paul is funny, organized and outgoing. Jenny is quiet, kind and loving. When we first met to shoot their engagement session downtown Detroit, I was instantly was drawn to their chemistry. Together they are a terrific pair, and I was so honored to capture their wedding day.
It was a bright day at the Royal Park Hotel in Rochester, MI. The August heat was gone and I was blessed with beautiful window light to shoot all the details.
These may be some of my favorite getting ready images!
Jenny and Paul chose to do a first look which made their wedding day go so much smoother. And made for great reaction images.
So, the way to make your photographer do a happy dance is have your ceremony in a location like this. All windows and natural light. I was in love.
We headed outside after the ceremony just as the sun was setting to capture bridal party images. I love me some natural sunshine!
This shot to me perfectly describes Jenny and Paul. He will do anything for her, even help with her shoes. I really love this candid moment.
Another quick shot of the Choo’s.
Jenny did a beautiful job putting together the pink and pistachio color scheme that worked beautifully with the Royal Park’s theme and elegance.
This was the most amazing cake I have ever eaten in my life. Ever. Hands down. I am so positive! haha, Sweet & Savory bakery made my taste buds melt.
Because Paul’s family is from London, each table was named after a Detroit landmark to aquatint them with the city. Every guest had a group of landmarks, like the DIA (Detroit Institute of Arts) above. This theme corresponded with their engagement images as we went to all the historical landmarks in the Downtown Detroit. A great way to welcome out of town guests.
This is Jenny’s little brother Max. As I got to know him throughout the day, I discovered how close they were and that he is pretty much the best brother a girl could ask for.

Jenny and Paul, thank you for an amazing day. I hope you are soaking up plenty of sun on your honeymoon!
