chadd and angela | grosse pointe academy wedding

There was this one moment at the end of the night. We pulled Chadd and Angela away from the dance party to take a few photos down by the water. We took our photographs, chatted for a few moments, and told them we were done and they could head back to the party. Laura and I started walking back to the reception and looked back to see Chadd and Angela with arms around each other looking out at the water and just taking a moment for them. In a day that is full of timelines, people, and expectations, it touched me that they would take a few moments just for them. Their love and respect for each other is obvious and beautiful, and I feel lucky to have captured their amazzzzzing day.
