Erin was such a blast to shoot, and reaffirmed why I love high school senior sessions so much. It’s such an exciting time, and you can feel that excitement throughout the entire shoot. Erin […]

I knew from the minute I met them at their engagement session and we starting chatting about the rustic wedding day they were planning that it was going to be absolutely gorgeous. And they didn’t disappoint! Post Family Farm was the perfect backdrop for these two to tie […]

We had a¬†tough winter here in Michigan this year; the kind that lingers well into April and makes us wonder if we are going to forever live in an igloo… Sarah and I had optimistically scheduled their engagement session for the first weekend […]

Oh my word! This wedding season just officially kicked off with a BANG! I’m still over here swooning over all of the amazing copper, rose gold, and floral details from Holly and Deema’s wedding at Planterra Conservatory in West Bloomfield this past weekend. In true Michigan fashion, Saturday’s weather was a bit crazy, going from […]

Sarah and Steve are SO sweet. I’ll be honest, I still get nervous every time I meet a new client…every time I meet anyone new really, but as soon as Sarah and Steve arrived, I was completely at ease. They are so down-to-earth and friendly; it was a pleasure getting to know them! They are […]

When you first get engaged and start planning your wedding, you’re likely to already have an idea about what flowers you want and what your dress will look like. Invitations, on the other hand, typically aren’t top of mind, but they do play an important role in your wedding! Other than serving their obvious purpose […]
