I didn’t get a chance to meet either Nicole or Martin until their wedding day…so we kept in touch, emailing back and forth until then. Nicole even emailed me a picture of her trying on her wedding dress! It was so elegant and chic, that I instantly was getting ideas for poses!
They met in Austria, where they both grew up. But, Nicole’s journey to the U.S. to complete her degree couldn’t keep them apart! Nicole called me just a few days after their engagement; and two months before their wedding date! I was so glad I had it available…it was an honor to photograph their special day!
I met Martin at the Ann Arbor Arboretum Garden, where we staged their “First Look”. The excitement on Martin’s face was adorable as he beheld his bride’s gaze when she walked up. It was a beautiful moment! We spent the next hour or so, photographing them in the garden, along the trail, and at the river bank. Then we packed up for a trip back to Toledo for their private ceremony outside of the courthouse. They exchanged vows and rings…and became the new Mr. and Mrs. Steskal!
