Lora & Tyler | Shelbyville, Michigan | Wedding Photography

Even though you might not know this ahhhhh-dorable couple and their families like I do, you will LOVE them as much as I do after you see these supa sweet photos. There was no shortage of love and laughter on this beautiful (but chilly!) fall day in Shelbyville, Michigan at Bay Pointe Inn Resort. The fall colors were at their PEAK in Michigan this weekend. It was gorgeous! Enjoy my favorites from their day.



As always, a big hauuuuuge thank you to my rock, Karen for shooting with me. You’re the best!


Lora and Tyler have the sweetest relationship. It made my heart so happy.


You won’t find one flaw in a Swifney smile. 😉


Lora, you are GORGEOUS!!!!! And The most laid-back bride I’ve ever had. Ever. The only thing she really had a say in was insisting that the boys stayed wrinkle free until the ceremony. 😉




Their First Look. 🙂


Tyler, my friend, you look so happy. And handsome.


One of my favorites!


Time to get married!



Mr & Mrs!!! Woot woot!!!!



Another favorite!




I can’t even begin to thank you two for trusting me with these special photographs. I loved being a small part of your intimate and beautiful day. I wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness! xoxoxo
