A couple of months after I shot their engagement photos, it was time to be Becky and Lirjon’s wedding photographer as well. The weather was fantastic this wedding. After the ceremony at their church in Detroit, we spent a couple of hours taking bridal and wedding party photos at a park in Grosse Pointe. This was the largest wedding party I’ve had to shoot so far (8 couples, plus the groom and bride, plus flower girl and ring boy) but I was happy with the results. Bride and groom looked fantastic, as if they’re models for a wedding magazine. During our engagement photo session, I had mentioned to the bride it would be a cool idea to bring some umbrellas as a prop – and she did. That was a surprise to me – especially since they were purple, her favorite color. Lirjon had brought some “props” for his groom’s men as well: aviator sunglasses. After that, they had a half American-half Albanian wedding reception at the Royalty House in Warren. There was plenty of dancing and fun till the wee hours – and even the bride learned how to dance Albanian style!
