We find ourselves still blushing whenever someone requests to publish our work. It's still a thrill, and a thrill for our clients too! Just some recent press from print to web!

First off, the lovely Sarah + Rupert were published back in January on Style me Pretty! Their wedding was at The Inn at Stonecliffe on Mackinac Island-and then a day after session at the Grand Hotel. Coming to the blog soon!


You can see the whole set here at Style Me Pretty:

Then Aleene + Joesph's wedding last June has been popping up everywhere!:

In Metro Detroit Bride:
Aleene+Joey.jpgThen Grace Ormonde Wedding Style decided to feature them:

You can see the link here:


And so did Grace Ormonde on her personal blog: Grace Ormonde Blog

And finally Chicago Style Unveiled also did a feature that you can view here:
Chicago Style Unveiled Aleene + Joseph


Joanne + Dan's gorgeous wedding at the Max M. Fisher music center back last April was featured on Elizabeth Anne Designs which you can view in full here:


Leanora + David's lovely summer wedding at the Inn at Bay Harbor was given a six page spread in the latest My North Weddings Magazine. In fact they even choose their photo for the cover! How fun is that? You can go here to view the whole wedding and download a .pdf of the spreads:

The cover image:

Alyssa + Howard's lovely 30's inspired backyard wedding was featured on Oncewed-more to come soon of this wedding I promise!


And finally, last but not least, the wonderful Kenan + Ro. Kenan was featured in a story that ran nationwide in all the local Bride's issues about Groom's Style. Check it out!


Real weddings and e-sessions to be blogged very soon! Thanks for being patient with us! digg technorati

Hi Jessica!
I've been a fan of yours for years. I am just curious as to what kind of camera/lens system you use??
Amazing work!

Nathan and I will be taking a vacation and will be out of the office from December 3rd through December 16th. We may be checking email occasionally during that time as we're able, but we greatly appreciate your patience if you don't hear from us until after the 16th.

We will be returning Voicemails when we return. If you are interested in seeing if we are available for your date, please do e-mail us, it just might be a bit longer for us to e-mail you availability and information. If we met with you recently and you want to book-feel free to e-mail us for a contract while we are gone. Just note it may take a bit longer for us to get back to you.

Lots of fun photos to post when we return from our Caribbean adventures!

All best,
jess + nate

Received a lovely e-mail from Sarah (see post one below!) a few days ago with a photo attachment from her iPhone to show off the placement of the canvas they purchased from their e-session. I just wanted to post this to say that you really can live with photos of yourselves in your own home!  Many times clients are a bit hesitant b/c they don't want large images of themselves up-but we always try to shoot for some images that would work well large as more of an art piece.

Here is the photo Sarah sent of Rupert modeling the art for us:

We had the great joy of finding out we placed two images in PDN Top Knots 2009!

We placed back in 2007 and it was amazing to place again! Even more so since we took home Best of Category: Candids from one of our favorite images ever-Amanda + Matt's vintage wedding at the Guardian Building in Detroit.

If you want to check it out on newsstands-this is the cover:
