Bald Mountain Lake Orion Wedding

I met Richard and Brianna two years ago when they booked me for their wedding.  I was a bit nervous to take them on as clients as all three of us seemed to be more introverted.  What I didn’t anticipate was just how much both Brianna and Richard would open up when in each other’s presence.  During their engagement session, the seemingly quiet couple embraced, laughed, and displayed a sense of partnership using the city of Rochester as their backdrop.  Their demeanor was no different on their wedding day.  Brianna was so excited to get her day started that she was dressed and nearly ready to walk down the aisle when I first arrived at her house!  Richard was quiet and contemplative until he got to see his bride for the first time.  His initial speechlessness turned to words of admiration and praise during their first look.   From that point on, both the bride and groom became both their own selves as well as one, having fun and focusing their attention solely on each other.  We spent the morning at Bald Mountain in Lake Orion, taking photos, hanging out with their friends, and making memories before heading to Christ the Redeemer just a few miles away for their ceremony.

With every wedding, I shoot for three things – elegance, emotion, and timelessness.  By shooting in nature, the backdrop reflects their love – calm and timeless.  These photos from their day are some of my favorites of the wedding season so far. Bald Mountain Lake Orion Wedding
