Michigan Baby Photos of 2 week old!

It's always amazing to see my wedding couples years after their weddings and even more amazing when I get to shoot their newborns! Miss K was only two weeks old and was incredibly cooperative at my studio in Detroit, Michigan. The only thing she wasn't happy at all about was her beyond cute home knit santa hat. To see photos of that, please check out my other blog at www.marcicurtis.blogspot.com. Enjoy!

Greystone Golf Club Wedding - Kristen & Rob

Kristen & Rob had one of the silliest wedding ceremonies I've seen in part because there were a couple of funny verbal gaffs, but mainly because they decided to just thoroughly enjoy themselves and live in the moment; even the silly ones! What a breathe of fresh air that was. There ceremony was at Greystone Golf Club which hosted a beautiful ceremony outside in perfect, slightly overcast shooting weather. I liked the Greystone management... they are professional and much like Kristen and Rob, they don't take themselves too seriously either!

White Lake Oaks Wedding Photos for Beth & Alex

Love this couple and love all their locations; the Methodist church in Clarkston and the White Lake Oaks wedding reception. If you follow my blogs carefully (and I know there are indeed blog stalkers out there!), you'll find Beth's cousin's wedding photos which may have a slight ring of familiarity about them because these were in the same locations. I've got more photos posted at www.marcicurtis.blogspot.com if you're looking to see more of Beth & Alex and White Lake Oaks Reception hall.

I figured since I haven't updated my baby section on my website that I'd better get these babies up here on my blog! Enjoy!

St. John's Inn Katie & John

So sad to see this family go! This is the third McBride "kid" I've shot this year and everyone was feeling sentimental about not seeing each other again! I loved how the men swirled around her (her dad and John in particular) and took over all the train tending duties! I decided to make a series out of it since it's unusual to have the guys be so dress attentive! Every time I shoot at St. Johns Inn, the rules for photography vary slightly, so it's always interesting to see who's watching the hens nest that day. It's always restrictive for wedding photographers, but sometimes more than usual and Katie and John's wedding was one of those days! The ceremony was in St. John's chapel and their reception was in the Atrium at St. Johns Inn. This family has a unique wedding ritual involving men rolling up their pants to "Hot Legs" and dancing like crazy people. There is also a mandatory dance with grandma to the YMCA. I love how ridiculously unpredictable the family is within their predictability!

Destination Wedding - Chicago! Lindsay & Mike

So this is a wedding I'd been looking forward to all year! Lindsay contacted me as soon as she got engaged so I could shoot her wedding in Chicago. She'd been in a wedding I'd shot the year before and knew I was the one she wanted... even if it meant having me come as a Destination Wedding. I attended their rehearsal and rehearsal dinner and was pleased to have the extra time to figure out how to light the beautiful, extremely hot and ridiculously dark Holy Family Parish church in Chicago. It absolutely poured all night, so none of us slept much during the night with thunderstorms galore and much of Chicago was closed since all their tunnels closed due to flooding! With stormy clouds all morning long, I was a little worried about all the plans for photos Lindsay had, but by the time she was ready to rock and roll, the clouds disappeared and we got to go out on their hotel's patio for some awesome skyline photos with the set from Transformers 3 down below (in case you were looking and wondered why Chicago was looking so torn up!). We then headed for the real ceremony, happy to get out of the 98 degree weather and headed right next door to St. Ignatius for the wedding reception. Mike and many of the groomsmen had gone to school there, so there was an added element of nostalgia to the day. Love this couple, love their silly dog, love the wedding party and was so happy to see Liz & Travis again!

Catherine & Eric's Grosse Pointe Wedding Photos

It was so fun to start my month of cousins and siblings of previous wedding couples. If you'll look back to last June, you'll find Catherine's cousin's wedding, which was also in Grosse Pointe and the reception was at Grosse Pointe's Lochmoor Club as well. We had a rain shower to beat the band... it was a downpour and we all holed up under a gazebo for twenty minutes until the sun came back out. For more wedding photos from this Grosse Pointe wedding and Lochmoor Country Club wedding reception, please visit my blog at www.marcicurtis.blogspot.com.
