En L’Air – Metro Detroit Weddings Summer/Fall 2018

The new issue of Metro Detroit Weddings is finally out and it’s time for me to share with you one of the shoots!

This shoot was a lot of fun, even though I did have an injured rib and was in a lot of pain and taking cough syrup every few hours.

Back in the fall when we were shooting the fairy tale wedding shoot up in Deckersville, MI, we were trying to come up with a concept for this issue. Someone had mentioned a swing. The idea stuck and low and behold, we had a swing made specifically for this shoot.

Fun fact, the J’Aton dress costs $27,000! When I went to go pick it up from Roma Sposa, I placed it in my backseat all by itself instead of the trunk. I was so scared it was going to get ruined. During the shoot, we even kept it separate from all of the other wedding dresses.

Next week, I will share with you the shoot that I styled myself! Hope you all have  a great weekend!
