After finding my passion for unique lighting as a wedding photographer, I wanted to be able to carry the interesting, powerful imagery for my portrait clients. Family, maternity, and newborn portraits don't have to be boring. They can be full of power and emotion leaving you blown away.

Libby + Danny’s wedding at the Royal Park Hotel in Michigan was genuinely so beautiful. The Royal Park Hotel is a gorgeous hotel and wedding space. It was the perfect space for this couple and their emotional wedding.

The Royal Park Hotel is a beautiful space. The staff is always super friendly and they went above and beyond to make sure that this day ran smoothly for Libby and Danny. It’s safe to say that we all had a wonderful experience there!

Getting Ready at the Royal Park Hotel in Michigan

The process of getting ready for this couple was so special. Libby specifically requested high glam getting ready photos and I will NEVER get over the one of her leaning into the mirror applying her makeup (Libby loved that one too).

We romanticized the getting ready process for everyone and it is a wonderfully special way to remember the day. From jumping on the bed in a dressing robe to playing cards with the bros, you can feel the excitement, the nerves, the anticipation, and pure enjoyment.

Libby wanted a high glam, elegant, and timeless wedding, and she wanted that reflected in her wedding photos. From the getting ready shots to the flower girls to the bridal sneakers the entire day was exactly that and entirely authentic to this couple.

Shooting it was truly a joy.

First Looks – Wedding Photography

Libby’s first looks totally tugged at my heartstrings. I mean, look at those photos! Her mom and her dad both were so emotional and overflowing with happiness for their girl.

Libby and Danny shared some special private vows and a sweet first look before the ceremony. They were completely and utterly happy. It is wonderful to find a home in another person.

High Glam Wedding Photos at The Royal Park Hotel

Being a part of this wedding made me feel like the luckiest girl in the world. I felt every emotion with them and marveled at all of the friends and family there with them to share in it.

This wedding is a perfect example of luxury that isn’t stuffy or boring. A luxury wedding isn’t about curating this prim, perfect day. A luxury wedding is authenticity and uplifting beauty. Luxury is feeling the way we know we deserve to feel.

You deserve to feel glamorous on your wedding day.
