Craig David Butler Studios – We’ve Moved to Plymouth Michigan

Photography studio, Craig David Butler Studios Plymouth Michigan
We are so excited to announce that we have moved to an incredible location in Old Village of Plymouth. Our new location is the original Plymouth train station built in 1871. The history behind this incredible structure is so impressive. Now we have the opportunity to move it forward into a new and more grandeur facility for our studio.

Wedding Photos – Michigan – Craig David Butler

WeddingPhoto-CraigDavidButler

If only for a moment
Throughout history there have been moments that resulted in iconic images.

Moments like the Victory in Europe, Life magazine photo by Alfred Eisenstaedt. While this image was reportedly staged it signified a monumental time in history in celebration in unabashed expression of shear joy. A crescendo if you will, a good conquering evil at the close of the conflict in Europe at the end of World War II.

Then there was the national geographic image by Steve McCurry of the Afghanistan women with the striking green eyes. Perched in a world of turmoil her eyes reflected such a pensive moment. A moment that was caught between uncertainty yet with the preparedness to flight or flee. Only realizing that in the next moment could be her last. The image intrigued a generation.

Or perhaps the amazing image by Denis Reggie of John F. Kennedy Jr and Carolyn Bessette just as they left their wedding chapel as JFK turned back and kissed his new brides hands in a shear gesture of comfort. That simple gesture implying of a life that could have been.

Our iconic moments are a based on the people and the meanings of what is or could be. They are also define representation of what was. A look, a feeling, a moment that sometimes feels much larger than we expected. Some are for those that have passed. Or moments we didn’t realize the brevity of until, years or decades later. Its in these moments we find who we are.

Its for these moments we should find our happiness with the ones we love, in these magnificent moments. No one can prepare us for the first time you hold your child. And you realize you hold in your arms this life and the magnitude of what that will mean to you in the years to come.

No one can prepare us for the trials and tribulations you will find in each of your moments along the way. As I gaze upon the photos that grace our walls I realize I am where I am supposed to be and with every wonderful moment we are who we are and we have this one opportunity to touch the lives of the people who make up our moments.

In these moments, these embraces these looks we wish we could live within forever and hold on to the people that are nearest to us. Time is unforgiving. It moves on regardless of every effort we try to slow it down. I feel so fortunate that we can come into a family’s life for this one day and be apart of and create some of their greatest moments. If nothing else, these moments, these images, give us and our friends and family something we can hold on to.

To remember.

The look, the laughter the meaning of who we are,
If only for a moment.

Wedding Photos Michigan Wedding Photographer Craig David Butler- My Favorites

I thought I could take a moment and show a few of my favorite photos from this past year in a series of posts over the next few days.

St. John's Plymouth Michigan Wedding

 

Finding Heart, Photographing Love – The angle of the Katelyn and Clayton’s position and the passionate hold he has – just love this!

Port Huron Wedding Photo michigan

 

As the storm rolled in, in Port Huron in July I thought how could we take advantage of this moment – back flash and Studio Umbrella -

Northville Wedding Photo

 

Back flash

Orchard Lake CC Wedding Photo  Michigan

 

When I saw Sally’s Pink gown I thought how cool it was (my first in the 14 years I have been at this).  I love the natural feel of this photo.

Lyon Oaks Wedding Photo Michigan

 

People always ask why do my couple’s look so relaxed and natural. I think it is more about the interaction that puts people at ease.  That and a really fun Engagement Session.

Lyon Oaks Wedding Photo

 

Natural smiles a slight back light from the sun the corn stalks in the background for color and a matte finish tops off this favorite.

Detroit Wedding Photo

 

Not many brides can pull off the look.  Christine knocked it out of the park (of course with a little help).

Detroit Michigan WEdding PHotographerI love the use of chalk boards in photos

Vintage Wedding Photo Michigan

The father of the groom had an old maroon truck he brought for the photos in between the Ceremony and Reception.  I love this very vintage feel and of course with the black & white it just works.

Country Wedding Picture Michigan

 

Nothing like fall and the beautiful texture and color of corn stalks during a setting sun.

Inn at St. John's Wedding Picture Michigan

 

One of my favorites over looking the chapel at St. John’s in Plymouth Michigan from the Bridal Suite.

First Look Wedding Pictures Michigan

 

Nothing like the first look of two people in love during a wedding day.

Beautiful Wedding Photo Michigan

 

Many people have told me your couples look like models. It is really putting them in the right light knowing how to pose and messing around to get a very natural reaction.

Sunset Wedding Photo Detroit Michigan

 

Taking advantage of a sunset in 20 degree weather with a camera that can capture a wide dynamic range (the bright areas and dark areas).
