Purely Love: Jen & Brad

These two are getting married SATURDAY!  We took their pictures a few months ago (and I am using them as a TBT😉 ) They really wanted rolling hills so we asked for permission to use a golf course during a slow time and they said yes!!! (we are so lucky!) The images turned out FANTASTIC! And we even had a ‘friend’ show up🙂  I can’t wait to hang out with you guys at Waldenwoods Saturday!🙂

I am in love with these silhouettes!!!❤

LTB in the D

What happens when you have a collision of six stellar studios run by boss babes?  You get an unforgettable event!  Last night I had the pleasure of photographing the first ever Pure Barre on the Detroit Opera House Sky Deck.

Each of the six studios, (Ann Arbor, Ann Arbor Downtown, Gross Pointe, Brighton, Novi and Rochester) led and aspect of the workout.  It was an evening to remember.  While it was hot! Everyone brought their all as they LTB’d to the beat of the motor city.  I just can’t even.  Here are the six boss babes leading the way!
2016-07-15_00022016-07-15_0003
Of course I had to snap a photo of a sampling of the Ann Arbor team beauties!! These girls have inspired me so much in the last few years!! Between the success of the Ann Arbor Studio to the opening of the new Downtown Studio  they are on fire! 2016-07-15_0004
As you can tell everyone had a blast! The heat did not stop a single person from tearing it up! 2016-07-15_00052016-07-15_00062016-07-15_0007
Because, chacos. 2016-07-15_00082016-07-15_00092016-07-15_00102016-07-15_0011
We even had some men who brought their all! 2016-07-15_00122016-07-15_00132016-07-15_0014
These fantastic shirts came from the local company Ink Detroit.2016-07-15_00152016-07-15_00162016-07-15_00172016-07-15_00182016-07-15_0019
This shirt (you can’t see it totally) says ‘Fueled by Coffee & Jesus’ yes.  So much yes.  You can add this to my Christmas list ;) 2016-07-15_00202016-07-15_0021
From the cat walk the view was incredible  SO MUCH ENERGY (and colorful mats!) 2016-07-15_00222016-07-15_00232016-07-15_00242016-07-15_00252016-07-15_00262016-07-15_0027
