I couldn’t wait to marry Scott and I was so excited about so many things to come in our marriage, but one thing I was most looking forward to right away in our marriage was our Disney-moon!! :) I was SUPER excited for our honeymoon in February (which would be 6 months post-wedding) when we’d be traveling to Disney World and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando!!! Throughout our 14-month engagement, I solely focused on planning the wedding and then began planning our honeymoon in the 6 months afterwards. I’m not sure I could have done both at the same time, to be honest, because planning a Disney and Universal Studios vacation is no joke! I had never been to either park before so I learned a LOT along the way! . . .Read More
Today’s blog is bound to be the one wedding that will always be my absolute favorite; OUR WEDDING!!
I shared these words the day after our wedding which was held on August, 23rd, 2018 at the Bay Pointe Inn, and they are still true to this day 8 months later!!!: “If I had to describe yesterday with one word it would be magical! Everything and everyone was so beautiful and delightful in such a way as it seemed removed from everyday life. . .Read More
Last week I shared Part 1 - The Best of 2017: Engagements and, today, I'm featuring Part 2 - The Best of 2017: Weddings! I looked back on all the wedding photos I captured in 2017 and narrowed them down to my absolute favorites from each couple's wedding day. These images make me fall in love all over again with my job, and I ended up with 1,418 wedding favorites from 2017! But I narrowed that down even further, and I am only sharing the very best of the best on this post today! . . .Read More
I am about to kick off my 2018 wedding season in a little over a week, and I am so so excited!! It has been roughly 4 months since my last wedding day, and I am READY to get out of my office on the weekends and be creative again! This winter I have been working hard on a ton of administrative, business, and educational goals and it has been nice to sleep in on the occasional Saturday. But I'm not all about that office life! . . .Read More
During the past couple of months I have been working hard and digging deep in order to give my website and my brand a bit of a refresh! It’s crazy how much your mindset and style can shift, even in just one year, and how some small updates can really reflect all the personal and professional growth that’s taken place. . .Read More
This announcement is so big I thought about sending all my blog readers a chilled bottle of champagne, just so they could pop their corks with me as I finally reveal who our wedding photographer is going to be and our favorite engagement photos!!!Read More
I have been helping my photography clients plan for their big day for the last 3 years, and when I got engaged in June 2017 my goal was to have a stress-free planning experience! For the most part, I think our planning has been amazing and so so exciting. . . but it didn't feel that way at the start! . . .Read More
I don't even really know where to start. I honestly can not believe all of the amazing things that have happened in the last month (and even within the last 72 hours!), and I am SO EXCITED to update all of you with everything big and small that has been happening around these parts over the last 30 days! . . .Read More
Travel Diary - May 7th, 2010
"Right now I am somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean . . . I flew from Detroit to Chicago this afternoon and it's now 2:27 AM Chicago time, and it is 8:29 AM London time . . .
Travel time to London: 2 hours and 1 minute. Time is such a weird concept to me right now. . ."Read More
I would scroll through hundreds and hundreds of amazing wedding, engagement, and lifestyle images from photographers who were killing it and they inspired me to aim higher, but back in 2013 I also felt like I had nothing to offer. I was just starting out with my first camera and some of these people who entered into the contest had been photographing couples in dreamy, wanderlust type locations for years . . . How could my images possible stand aside their's and compete in a contest? I was afraid to be judged, like most of us are, and so I decided not to enter. . .Read More
