A Scarab Club Wedding is the most beautiful place to be married. We photographed their engagement there and it was epic! Does everyone have free reign of a location? We did for both their engagement and wedding at the Scarab Club. It helped refine our photography style a little more as well as our philosophy of how we see. Because Detroit is honored to have such a unique wedding venue within its borders.
Weddings so much of the time can feel the same. We’ve begun to understand moments before they happen. To predict what will happen, how it will happen, and most importantly is why it is happening. The last part is the most crucial. We walk into a wedding day and it’s like we just walked into a room full of strangers. It’s alienating at times, but can also be rewarding. We do not have anyone to impress or preconceived notions about anything. All we know are people. How people interact, when they might cry or smile, and then back around to why. Our eyes are not only on the bride and groom but on everyone there. We know grandparents, parents, siblings, and other crucial members but that only implies the obvious. Understanding who and why has always been at the core of our philosophy of photography.
