Carl and Michelle’s Wedding

I first met Carl many years ago in middle school. I was probably about 11 years old at the time, and I was in the same grade as his sister. Fast forward … however many years later (lol) … and thanks to the wonderful creations known as Twitter and Facebook, I reconnected with his sister after … however many years. His sister was preparing for a move to the west coast, and I decided to stop by her going-away party prior to a photo shoot. I had not seen either of them in person since middle school. Carl approached me about photographing his upcoming wedding, and the rest, as they say, was history.

The best thing about photographing Carl and Michelle’s special day was that in addition to knowing EXACTLY what they wanted, they both have creative minds. They threw some great ideas at me for shots prior to the wedding day, and they were willing to do anything on their big day in order to get a great shot.

They had several locations they wanted to shoot at in between the ceremony and the reception – each location holding a special memory for them from their relationship. The Dequindre Cut was my favorite. The urban feel of the graffiti contrasted nicely with the elegance of tuxedos and wedding gowns.

The best part of the day was the fact that everyone involved was so easy to work with. The entire bridal party was fun to be around; and no one was uptight, nervous, or apprehensive about any shot that any one person wanted to get. It was a long hot day, but I feel the quality of the images was definitely worth the heat stroke. Check out a few more images, and I’ll be back in a couple days with images from a rooftop bikini fashion show. *Usher voice* Yeaaaaaaaaaaah man!!
