St Michael is a beautiful suburb with historical buildings and gorgeous landscapes. We started our day at St. Michaels Catholic Church.

Fall colors were at their peak. We walked the church grounds before the ceremony.2016-01-28_0026Sometimes beautiful portraits can happen in unexpected places. The edge of the large parking lot had the best backdrop with the best shade to block the high-noon sun.2016-01-28_0038Seriously, one of the most stunning brides ever.2016-01-28_0037Bright sun is not the preferred time of day for a large group outside. But we work with the time given as best as possible and in this case, the bright sun was not a deal breaker. It worked!2016-01-28_0027The bride smiled her way through the beautiful ceremony.2016-01-28_00292016-01-28_0030Off to the bar!  Since the whole wedding went to the same bar, we captured a bar photo. This was also the place this couple met!

Since all the portraits earlier had been in a sunnier environment, we wanted to capture a different look.  I’m so happy we did!
