Darcy + Sean | DOW Gardens Wedding Preview

Darcy & Sean were scheduled to be wed at the DOW Gardens in Midland back on April 26th. That ceremony went on as planned, however the unpredictable Michigan weather forced the event indoors at Oscars restaurant downtown. I knew how much this location meant to the both of them (Sean originally proposed in this very spot), so I promised we could return for a makeup photo session to complete their wedding experience. Finally last evening the skies were clear (mostly), and our schedules aligned for a full photographic journey around the Gardens.

During our visit I was able to capture this image. Surrounded by lush vegetation, their white attire really pop out of the frame. The natural surroundings, full of life, representing their growing and undying love. Congrats to both of them on their journey together!

It’s my philosophy that you shouldn’t have to plan your wedding around your photographers schedule. Its YOUR day, therefore coverage for all wedding commissions cover your arrival at the church through the formalities at your reception, with NO TIME LIMIT. All wedding collections also include an image disk of (edited) high resolution digital negatives.


2022 wedding commissions start at $2495, with most clients choosing from album collections starting at $3095. I generally fill my schedule from April to October each year, so booking 10 - 12 months in advance is recommended.


Please call me at 989.233.8512 to discuss your day, or email me at ryan@collierstudios.com. I look forward to hearing from you!
