When Shelby and Mark first contacted me about photographing their wedding at the Belle Isle Aquarium in Detroit, I was so excited! I love couples who dare to be different and choose unique venues as the backdrop for their wedding. Belle Isle Aquarium is definitely one of the most unique wedding venues in Michigan! It’s true that the extremely low lighting (no flash allowed, either) and intense green tones make it a challenge to photograph, but I knew it wouldn’t be a problem for me and my trusty Nikons. The gorgeous architecture and array of sea life provide lots of inspiration. Shelby and Mark are both animal lovers, nature lovers, and amazing chefs. Everything came together at their intimate wedding in Detroit and it couldn’t have been any more perfect. Well, maybe if it had been a touch cooler, lol! But besides the heat, the wedding was absolutely amazing! Congratulations Shelby & Mark, and best wishes for the most wonderful future together!
