Riley: Class of 2017 at Stevenson High School

I’m so excited to share Riley’s senior session! Riley is my cousin, and like Megan, it’s been so much fun watching him grow up and I can’t believe he will be graduating in just a few months! He also just found out he got in to Ferris State University, where he will be joining his sister Delaney (she makes an appearance in some of the photos below) and following in the footsteps of both his mom and dad. Go Bulldogs! Here are some photos from his senior session last summer in downtown Northville in Michigan. I’m so proud of you Riley! 



Patrice+Joseph//wedding

I’m so excited to share my last wedding for 2016 (even though it’s not 2017, time has slipped away!). Patrice and Joseph had such a beautiful, moving wedding. It was so much fun getting to meet all of their friends and family who were there to support them, including Patrice’s uncle who walked her down the aisle in place of her late father. He saw her in her bridal gown and had tears in his eyes. And he wasn’t the only one! The doors opened at the beginning of the ceremony, and Joseph face lit up, before crying some happy tears. When they exhanged their extremely heart-felt vows, it was my turn to cry! They completed the ceremony with a broom jumping ritual, which was very neat to take photos of. The ceremony that followed was filled with beautiful flowers, yummy cake,  and so much dancing and laughter! Joseph also rocked his wrestling belt (see below!). Patrice’s mother had an umbrella made for her second line (New Orleans-style parade!), and one of the panels had the Michigan State Spartans logo (we are both alumnae! Go green!). Overall, this was such an awesome day to be a part of! Thank you Patrice and Joseph!
