When I became a wedding photographer back in 2012, I never could have imagined ending up here. "Here" as in having couples-turned-lifelong-friends, shooting hundreds of weddings at the most beautiful venues in Metro Detroit, and fueling my passion for travel by adventuring from coast to coast. It's such a dream and privilege to serve couples like you on a daily basis!
Hello, lovely souls! As we say goodbye to 2023, I find myself reflecting on this incredible year full of love in Detroit that I’ve had the honor of capturing. It’s been a year of blessings, freezing moments in time that beautifully showcase the unique love shared by each couple. Come with me as I reminisce about the magic that unfolded through my lens.
Detroit, you’ve done it again! This city, rich in history and character, served as the canvas for unforgettable love stories in 2023. From the captivating Detroit Institute of Arts to the hidden gems in Belle Isle Park, I explored every nook, capturing the very essence of love that makes Detroit so special.
My lens didn’t settle within city limits; it soared beyond, chasing love across landscapes as diverse as the couples I had the pleasure of capturing. From the enchanting corners of Michigan to the majestic peaks of the Colorado Rockies, and the sun-kissed landscapes of Joshua Tree National Park and Palm Springs, I feel blessed to have captured moments with incredible couples deeply immersed in love.
Let’s spill the tea on the extraordinary trends of 2023! Micro-weddings, adventurous engagement sessions – 2023 had its own vibe. I was honored to follow wonderful couples as they crafted weddings as unique as their love stories.
Every click tells a story, though not every tale makes it to the ‘gram. From infectious laughter in candid shots to the poignant exchange of vows, each frame conceals a universe of connection and emotion. With scarce moments to step in front of the lens myself, I am profoundly thankful for these captures, preserving me engaged in what I love throughout the past year.
As we bid farewell to 2023, I am deeply grateful for the chance to be part of your love stories. From the vibrant heart of Detroit to the enchanting allure of beautiful destinations, this year has been a journey of capturing love in its most authentic form. Here’s to embracing more genuine moments, shared laughter, and meaningful connections in the coming year, 2024. Wishing you all a Happy New Year filled with love and joy! Much love, Shauna
