josh + lauren | southeast michigan wedding

When Lauren contacted me about photographing her wedding, I was so excited. I was even more excited when she told me what it was going to be like and where it was going to be, etc. It turns out, Josh and Lauren are one of the kindest couples and their wedding day was absolutely gorgeous! I didn’t know them personally before the wedding other than talking to Lauren a couple times. But just being there during the ceremony and being with them through out the day- their love for Jesus and for each other was so incredibly evident. The whole wedding ceremony was beautiful and Christ-centered. Lauren is a talented¬†photographer and is super creative….she put so many personal touches on all of the details of the day. Here are just a few of my favorite photos from the day…


Loved their wooden backdrop during the ceremony!


The reception was held in an old opera house. These photos were shot in the beautiful old areas of the building…





Loooove those venues/locations! And her style. And the photos. :) Great work, lovely!!

Your photos are amazing – I especially love the ones of them in the green room sitting on the ground against the wall. Stunning.

I’m so enamored with this wedding. I love the green! As a native Texan, I also love the succulents. So bright and cheerful.

What a gorgeous day! Beautiful work friend!

Hello, I would love to know where the ceremony was held as I am planning a wedding in Southeast Michigan. Thanks so much!


Beautiful pictures! Where were you for outdoor pictures with the barn?!


I think this reception site is Howell Opera House
