Friday morning. That’s the day I got out of bed and raced through the usual coffee and other morning routines. I skipped my usual lazy scroll through Facebook. I think I was even too excited for breakfast. Pretty typical wedding morning for me, but it wasn’t a...
Jessica + Jaymz | Maybury State Park Engagement Session | Novi, Michigan
These two. I met Jess several years ago when she worked for the city of Farmington Hills. She worked at a lovely place in town that held intimate weddings, and I would run into her whenever I was there working as a wedding photographer. She never failed to have the brightest smile and seriously just radiated when she walked into the room. She’s one of those people that brighten the room.
Imagine my happiness when we fast forward a few years later and I got an email checking with me on availability for next year. Jess asked if I remembered her.
Um, there is no way anyone on the planet could forget her. She is gorgeous and has the brightest personality! So, of course, I was thrilled when I was able to be her engagement photographer and wedding photographer too.
She met the love of her life this way:
Does anyone else have something in their eye? I need a tissue! After knowing Jessica and hearing their love story, I couldn’t wait to Jaymz. You guys, they were everything. So romantic, so so many smiles, and so sweet too. We shot at Maybury State Park and it was the perfect secluded area for such a sweet couple.
They’re going to make for an amazing bride and groom next May. I can’t wait to capture their wedding day, and I’m pretty excited about the venue too. The Ford Avenue Piquette Plant was the birthplace of the Model T. Today it’s a museum for antique cars. Weddings take place directly on the museum so floor so guests will be mingling with antique vehicles throughout the night!
