Fall Wedding at Historic Holly Hotel

Fall Wedding in Michigan | Holly Hotel

When I first met Leah and Larry, it was downtown Detroit for their engagement session in and around the Eastern Market. They’re a super sweet couple, so obviously in love. They were planning a grand affair at Lafayette Grand in Pontiac, and we were all super pumped!

When COVID hit, things changed. Larry was going to be gone for work, and the Pandemic just made things get a whole lot smaller. So we waited, for months. Leah reached back out to see if I was available to shoot their wedding at the end of October, and I was! Things were perfect! Wedding number two, let’s go! And then.. our sweet Bride, got sick. And we needed to reschedule the wedding, one final time.

Third times a charm, and I truly believe it. They got the most incredible weather, and while there were some hiccups here and there, you would have never known with how composed they were. Things ran amazing, once we got going. They were just excited to marry each other.

We settled for photos in the little alley-way near the Historic Holly Hotel. We found the most adorable little plant shop to do their first look in front of. (oh, darn! haha!)

A huge congratulations to the newlyweds, who were so deserving of the incredible day it was. I couldn’t have been more thrilled to be there and capture this beautiful day. Honestly, working with people like this- fills my cup. And these images, reflect that. They are stunning, (yes- I am proud of these!) and I do my absolute best work when we vibe.

And Leah, don’t forget to always ‘Shake your sprinkles, Cupcake.” <3

So if you want an experience like this, I’ll be here. 😉

"Magan was hands down the best choice we made (other than marrying my husband!) for our wedding."

"Hire Magan if you want beautiful pictures. She had us literally tearing up at how stunning all her photos of us are and you don’t spend your entire wedding posing for pictures. Magan was hands down the best choice we made (other than marrying my husband!) for our wedding. You’ll love her personality and you will never regret hiring her for any occasion."

"She captures moments like no on I've seen in the business."

"Magan is a pro. If you're looking for artist to deliver on the biggest day of your life (wedding) she's your woman. She's honest, fair and fun to hang around with. I never write reviews but needed to for Evoke as the caliber of her work is amazing. It also helps she's leaned in digitally and can deliver your photos back in a seamless and easy way. Well done Magan. Keep on making people look like movie stars. :)"

" Her approach to personalize and tailor your experience to match your needs makes her an easey recommendation."

"I can't say enough good things about my experience with Magan. I was in the market for a photographer to capture a special moment and Magan was a joy to work with throughout the entire process. In order to look comfortable in photos, it is so crucial to have an upbeat, energetic personality that simultaneously can break any awkwardness with conversation or humor and Magan fulfills that in spades! Her approach to personalize and tailor your experience to match your needs makes her an easy recommendation."

"The pictures from our wedding day left us speechless."

Our engagement photo session, with Magan, was an absolute blast. We are so appreciative of Magan’s help and guidance throughout our wedding planning and forever GRATEFUL to have had her and her husband with us on our wedding day. Magan and Jared were perfect for us and our wedding group, and a huge part in making it all happen. The pictures from our wedding day left us speechless. We can’t stop looking at them. She captured every moment. We’re so thankful to not only have gained a photographer for life, but also a friend.
