I’ll never forget the first time I flipped through my grandparents’ wedding album. We were helping my grandma gather photos and prepare for my grandma and grandpa’s 50th anniversary party. Fifty years. Having only been on this earth for thirty, it’s hard to truly wrap my mind around such a milestone. Page after page of […]

I. Love. Details. Wedding day details are what make each wedding day unique. A lot of time and planning goes into each and every part of a wedding day, and one of my favorite parts of being a wedding photographer is capturing all of those personalized details. I recently second-shot a wedding for my good […]

I have to start this post by saying I meet the very best people while working on this fun business of mine. Rachel and Dino are no exception! I actually met these two last fall when I had the honor of photographing Brianne and Ryan’s wedding, where Rachel was a bridesmaid, and was really excited […]

I don’t even know where to begin when describing what an honor it was to photograph Katie and Brad’s big day. I met Katie via her cousin, who is a fellow photographer, and was instantly excited to work with her. She is the kind of person you are just drawn to – kind, bubbly, beautiful […]

Some people are just lucky…. Sarah is definitely one of those people! 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 […]

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 […]

I. Love. To. Travel. Whether it’s jetting off to another country, cruising on an ocean, or road-tripping near or far, I’m always down to check out a new place. Throw a little photography in the mix and I’m on cloud nine! New venues, new cities, new countries…bring it on. I’ve been keeping a mental list […]

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you all have had the happiest of holiday seasons and are looking forward to the new beginnings that each new year brings. If you follow me on Facebook, you’ve seen my countdown to 2018 where I’ve shared my very favorite images from 2017. I thought I would ring in […]

I first met Brianne & Ryan this past summer for their engagement session and instantly loved these two. They are so sweet and fun-loving; the kind of people you can’t help but feel joyful around. Brianne’s smile is so contagious (not to mention beautiful!) and it’s easy to see what Ryan loves so much about […]
