I had never met Samantha and Neil prior to their wedding, but after talking on the phone so much during their planning, when I walked in her Mom's house where Samantha was getting ready it was like we knew each other. We took the beautiful natural light portraits I love to take by the window. Samantha was beaming! It was a beautiful day, so then we went outside for some gorgeous bridal portraits with all of the girls.
After driving in to the beautiful Gem Theater, Samantha and Neil had their first look in the garden out front. The sun was out, so I was able to take beautiful, backlit pictures! Just look at Neil's beaming face as he sees Sam for the first time! Most wedding photographers hate the sun and look for flat light. Not me!
We then took their bridal party pictures with Ford Field perfectly in the background. How cool!
Samantha and Neil's wedding reception was an amazing party at an amazing venue.
