Way back in March we flew to NYC photograph some of four of our clients for this year-many of whom were having destination weddings. What I love about this series, is that each neighborhood and location we photographed our clients in is just so "them".

A few months back we photographed the lovely Christine + Scott's e-session when the Ann Arbor Carnival was in town-and we had a blast. Christine and Scott have known each other for over 15 years-and are getting married this December-we can't wait. So excited to show you their e-session images!

Enjoy!
