JULIA + ROBERT

Immersed in Fall Sunlight

ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN

OCTOBER, 2019

Julia and Robert, two bon-vivants with European roots, eloped last summer at the local courthouse in Ann Arbor with only a couple of witnesses, without an official wedding photographer. I wanted to capture their playful personalities and create a unique look for their post-wedding adventure photo session, so we went for a mixture of bohemian vibe and European styling, featuring a touch of Wes Anderson.

 

Huron River Drive in Ann Arbor is one of my favorite locations for adventure elopements and engagement sessions in Southeast Michigan. The river, hundred year old tree, fields of tall grass and wooded areas are an ideal setting for couples that want to take a little stroll and capture their love immersed in nature. We frolicked in the last rays of Indian summer, which inspired the visual outcome of their photo session. The glowing golden hour light, subtle movement of Julia's dress, simple posing and natural accents of the bouquet perfectly captured the mood of the evening.

Julia's and Robert's wedding reception is set for 2020 at a beautiful medieval monastery in Prague, Czech Republic. Both of their families live in Europe, so they are expecting to eat traditional Eastern-European dishes and party until early morning.
