Alex & Bretts Detroit summer wedding was a dream come true! Not one hiccup through-out the day & even the rain held off until our very last outdoor photo at Twin Lake Golf Course. I still remember to this day our first time meeting & how laid back these two were. I know I say that about all of our clients, but they truly are! Alex’s attention to detail fit perfectly with mine on helping build their timeline for the day of. Brett’s fun side made it a breeze with natural pictures for our second shooter, Melinda. We all worked together so well, and you will see that in their images below.
We started the day at the gorgeous Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Detroit. This church never ceases to amaze me in its astounding architect & beautiful stained glass windows. After the nuptials, we headed out to explore downtown Detroit with the bridal party & to capture some one-on-one images of the newlyweds. I was obsessed with the wind that day (if you know this photographer, I love to play with wind) & with from Alex’s flowy wedding dress to her elegant hair, it all captured that winds movement flawlessly! I can’t leave Brett out, it also made his hair do some Beyonce moves as well! I dug it! 😉
From Detroit, we heading to the reception venue at Twin Lake Golf Course. With the bride & groom understanding how important the photography on your wedding day is, as well as the videography, they set aside a great amount of time for us to capture all these fun memories! Not only does this amount of time allow for “at ease” photos, it also allows them to enjoy just each-other before all the festivities begin. On your whirlwind of a wedding day, it’s rare you get to have time just for the two of you (unless you do a first look), so I strongly advise this time, you won’t regret it!
Now, enjoy their beautiful Detroit & Oakland Township Wedding!

I cannot imagine our special day without her. From the moment I inquired back in August of 2020, to our wedding day October 2021, Kate was with us every step of the way. She was amazing at communicating, answering my (many) questions, and making us feel so comfortable in front of the camera! Throughout this process, she\ became a great friend as well. On our wedding day, she made sure we stayed on track with timing, and made it a priority to ensure my husband and I were taken care of. Her positive energy, flexibility, and expertise made the day so much fun and so memorable. Kate perfectly captured our love--her photographs are of the highest quality and have unique touches that represent each of her clients. We are so very thankful that we had Kate be apart of our wedding day. She went above and beyond to make our day everything and more!

We were so lucky to have Katelynn as our photographer! She was truly amazing to work with! We found Katelynn through a friend who had previously booked her for her wedding. Wedding photos were really important to me and I wanted memories that we could cherish for the rest of our lives. After seeing her work, we knew that we wanted her to capture our wedding day! She made coordinating locations and poses stress free. We had a large bridal party and were a little worried about pictures being chaotic, but Katelynn was so patient with everyone and made it look like a breeze! Her kindness radiated all day and our families could not say enough good things about her. She was so great at making us feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera! She also made my sunset and veil photo dreams come true with her amazing photography skills! We are so in love with every picture that she took! She captured the best memories for us and we can’t recommend her enough!

Not only was Katelynn super informative about making crucial wedding decisions, but she did everything she could to make us truly feel special. She was flexible, patient, honest, and most of all kind. My husband and I love our engagements pictures and all of the incredible pictures she captured at our wedding. She thinks about every little detail in each shot. We now have these amazing memories that will last with us for the rest of our lives. She has a passion for what she does and will help make your wedding journey so memorable and special.
