Beautiful Henry Hotel Wedding Reception

Over the weekend we photographed Daljit and Shilpa’s beautiful Henry Hotel wedding reception. You’ll probably recognize them as we shared the pictures from their stunning multicultural wedding ceremony a couple months ago. After their gorgeous ceremony, we knew their reception was going to be out of this world. We are still in awe as to how beautiful everything was!

Shilpa looked absolutely radiant in her pink and gold Lahenga. She got her hair done by Luigi Bruni Salon and her makeup by Amanie. I don’t think she could have made a more beautiful bride!

We started the event by capturing some photos of the bride and groom. Daljit and Shilpa are so sweet together and since we’ve already spent a lot of time photographing them before, they were very comfortable in front of the camera.

There were so many cool lines and patterns inside The Henry that made for some really unique portraits of them.

Every time we work a wedding with Utsav Planners, we know it’s going to be amazing. Their team is so friendly, professional, efficient and they really know how to put together an elegant wedding that people will never forget! Daljit and Shilpa’s reception was no exception. We were blow away with how stunning all of the decor was. Their colors were so bold and beautiful, it felt like you stepped into an entirely new world when you walked into their ballroom.

Bellisario’s did an awesome job with all of the flowers and centerpieces. They were perfect compliments to all of the amazing linens from Fabulous Events.

This beautiful cake was done by Trifles and it looked almost too good to eat on top of the bed of rose petals.

The setup they had for their head table was one of our favorites we’ve ever seen. We loved the romantic lighting and how the centerpieces complimented the chandelier.

I can’t even begin to describe how amazing their dessert table was. Complete with a swan ice sculpture in the middle, even the food tables were absolutely breath taking! Major kudos to Wisteria Bakehaus for putting this together!

As if this reception didn’t already look like a fairy tale, there were fireworks while Daljit and Shilpa had their first dance. Yes, actual fireworks and we have the pictures to prove it!

We also had the pleasure of working alongside 97 Films and DJ Ice Productions. We love it when we get to work with vendors who are professional, talented, fun and all around great people. We had such a great time with everyone and we are looking forward to seeing them all again soon!

Rochester Michigan Family Photographer – Extended Family Pictures

People often think that once the warm weather is gone, it’s not a good time to take family pictures. They couldn’t be more wrong! The fall and winter months are a great time to get your family pictures done. One of the big reasons why that time of year is perfect is because of the holidays. It’s often hard to get your whole family together at the same time, but with the holidays around everyone is typically already together. It ends up being a perfect time to have pictures taken, especially because you can get your entire extended family involved.

For sessions like this, we will actually travel to your home which makes it even more convenient for everyone. That’s exactly what we did for the Martin family a couple months ago! We started their session indoors where we were able to get some great group shots as well as some pictures of the individual immediate families.

It ended up being a pretty nice day outside so after we took some indoor pictures, we moved the entire gang outside to capture a few more.

The trees and slight dusting from the snow ended up being a perfect background! This was such a wonderful family to work with. We had a blast spending part of our day with them and we hope to see them all again in the future!

Beautiful Centerpoint Marriott Wedding Photography

We recently photographed a beautiful wedding ceremony for Daljit and Shilpa at the Centerpoint Marriott. Shilpa was an absolutely stunning bride. She had her hair done at Luigi Bruni Salon and her makeup by Amanie and everything turned out beautifully! With all the amazing detail from her henna to her jewelry, she looked radiant.

Daljit and Shilpa had a very sweet first look. Shilpa was beaming as she slowly turned the corner to see her groom. We loved that we were able to capture a photo of that moment!

This ceremony was very unique because it was not just one, but two! Daljit and Shilpa wanted to incorporate both of their religious beliefs so they started with a Sikh ceremony which was followed by a Hindu ceremony. We loved all of the different traditions being brought together!

Both of the ceremonies were absolutely stunning. The colors, pillars and all of their decor looked so elegant together. We loved their beautiful pink and purple flowers done by Bellisario’s. The linens were provided by Linens and Beyond and Elegant Events provided some of the other decor as well. We always know that a wedding is going to be beautiful when Utsav Planners are involved! They did such an amazing job with all the planning for these ceremonies. They provided the gorgeous Mandap as well!

Lake Orion High School Model Pictures with Kasidy

Ever since we did a photoshoot with Kasidy and her family, we’ve just loved this girl! She’s so fun, sweet, outgoing and she has THE best heart! This girl is just as beautiful on the inside and she is on the outside and we are so pumped to have her as a part of our JV Model Team this year.

Kasidy goes to Lake Orion High School and once she graduates she plans on going to medical school to become a physicians assistant. Kasidy loves softball (and sports in general), piano, traveling, shopping and singing. She also teaches herself American sign language! She says she can’t live without her phone, a hairbrush and gum. Kasidy said she was excited to be an Arising Images model because, “It’s so much fun. The people are great. It’ll help me enjoy who I am and it will be a great experience.”

A couple days ago we had Kasidy in our studio for her first shoot as one of our JV Models. Since we already photographed Kasidy before we knew her shoot was going to be great, but I don’t think we expected it to be as awesome as it was! From start to finish, Kasidy was a total rockstar in front of the camera.

This girl has the most gorgeous hair so we wouldn’t let her leave without using a little wind on it! And by a “little” I mean we brought out a leaf blower and had way too much fun blowing her hair with it. Her mom and some friends even came by to watch because it was pretty hilarious. Nevertheless, we were able to get some really cute pictures of Kasidy laughing while we did it!

Kasidy brought a lot of really fun accessories to her shoot. We loved getting some fashion inspired pictures of her wearing one of her awesome hats. One of our favorites is the close up with her hat covering one eye. Absolutely stunning!

Romeo High School Model Pictures with JoJo

We’ve had the pleasure of getting to know JoJo this past year because her older sister Katryna was one of our Senior Models. Katryna was an awesome sister and brought JoJo along for a couple of her shoots. We had so much fun photographing them together and we were really excited when JoJo wanted to join our JV Model Team.

JoJo is so much fun! She’s got a great sense of humor and such a signature style. She’s sporty and girly at the same time and this girl LOVES her converse! Two of the shoots she came to with her sister, she wore a dress and converse. We loved that about her! She’s her own person with her own style and she isn’t afraid to show it!

Yesterday JoJo came to our studio for her model session with us and this was the first time we’ve photographed her alone. She said she was nervous, but take a look at the first picture we took of her. Talk about having nothing to be nervous about! This girl is a natural in front of the camera and she is so stunning it’s insane!
