Early on…

I had a chance to photograph a very special wedding for Derek & Crystal last week at Indianwood Golf & Country Club in Lake Orion.  We all met up at the club a couple of hours before the event and took some individual shots around the property without the two of them seeing one another.  I asked Derek how he was doing before the service and he got a great big smile on his face and told me how excited he was to be marrying Crystal.  It was a moving moment for me as a photographer; when two people are that much in love it really shows in their photos.  You could feel the excitement building with Crystal too, the ladies were all having a great time laughing and loving the moment!

The Club…

I love Indianwood, it is such an important historic location and the setting is one of a kind.  The architecture is perfect for getting great shots everywhere you turn.  The food is first rate too, I have always heard great things from our clients and our other photographers.  Crystal and I had talked about wanting to get some sunset shots when we did our planning meeting but I don’t think either of us expected to see what we saw that night.  I was keeping a eye on the clock as we approached what we thought would be sunset. 


There was not much of a break in the clouds for some time but we went outside anyway.  What opened up was something to behold, we had about a 5 minute window to shoot in and what we got was breathtaking!  We jumped back into the party and don’t think anyone even missed us.  What a great night and what a great couple!  Thank you to everyone in the bridal party for making this a really fun wedding for me and thanks to Mykala Salquist and her staff at Indianwood for making this a wonderful event for all of us!
