Shawna & Angel - January 21st, 2017 - Metro Detroit Wedding Photography

Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.
— Ann Landers

Shawna and Angel found me through a Dearborn Facebook group. I lived most of my life in Dearborn and as soon as Shawna and I talked on the phone we just clicked. They were looking for an engagement photographer and we ended up driving around Detroit having a blast capturing some fabulous photos of just the two of them. Shortly after I delivered their engagement images Shawna asked if I was free for their wedding this upcoming January. I was so excited I was able to capture this day for the two of them.

These two met at work and they truly shine brightest together. They make each other laugh, they support one another, and you can tell all they want is love and happiness for their partner. They celebrated by having an intimate ceremony at Heritage Park Chapel in Taylor in front of their closest friends and family. They did not see each other before their ceremony and each of them was nervous, I could tell, but the good butterflies in your tummy kind. The look on Angel's face seeing Shawna walk down the aisle is one of my favorites.

After changing out of her gorgeous wedding shoes and into Hunter boots for the rain puddles outside on an unseasonably warm Michigan day we had some time just the two of them together. They rejoined their guests at Park Place in Dearborn and celebrated the night away.

Congratulations you two, you deserve all the happiness in the world. Keep on making each other laugh until your tummy hurts. That's my advice ;)

XO,

Sarah
