Can you say polka? Ania and Kevin's traditional Polish wedding began where she was getting ready at her parents' house. There's something special about photographing a bride getting ready in the house she grew up in. Besides awesome natural-light window bridal portraits we took some beautiful pictures in her back yard!
From there it was on to St. Florian Catholic church in Hamtramck, a beautiful church in which I photographed Ania's brother's wedding a few years ago. What a glorious cathedral for a wedding!
After the wedding we stopped at Quarton Lake in Birmingham for bridal party pictures. You'll see me say it elsewhere on my blog. Most wedding photographers hate the sun. They don't know how to use it. They'd prefer flat light. I LOVE the sun. Check out the beautifully back lit portraits of Ania, Kevin, and their bridal party at Quarton Lake!
