Pop the champagne!! I’d like to make a toast because Josh proposed to Taylor in Hart Plaza and I had the honor of photographing the moment she said “YES!” It all began about 1 month prior when Josh emailed me about his plans to propose to his girlfriend, Taylor. Josh really wanted to make the day special and planned to go into Detroit on August 2nd to celebrate her birthday with a nice dinner, a concert, and, unbeknownst to Taylor, a surprise proposal right in the heart of downtown and he wanted a me there to photograph it! . . .Read More
Sarah and Eric met as undergrads at Michigan State University and while they both worked as referees for some of the intramural sports teams. A few years later in the middle of their favorite city, Chicago, Eric proposed to Sarah on a rooftop covered with rose petals! Talk about romantic!! . . .Read More
Emily and Willie's wedding day is one of my new favorites (although I say that every week because all of my couples are just so UH-mazing!!), not only because this couple is so in love (see photos of their first look where Willie wipes away some of Emily's tears!), but their wedding took place at one of my favorite venues in downtown Detroit; the Masonic Temple! . . .Read More
I feel like I have such a special connection to Carole and Mark and I had so much fun exploring Belle Isle with them for their engagement session!

Before Lauren and Marcus' engagement session at Belle Isle in Detroit, I sent them my Engagement Session Style Guide which includes everything from choosing the right location for your portraits to coordinating outfits to the little details you don't want to forget about. I think they totally ROCKED their engagement photos and can I gush one last time about their unbelievable outfits for a minute - gorgeous taste and Lauren has such an eye for style! I believe that because they were given the tools to prepare, that allowed both Lauren and Marcus to relax, be themselves, and to most importantly have fun at their engagement session! . . .Read More
When Tina told me that she loves the fall and pumpkin everything, I knew that we would be instant friends! Coincidence or not, the fall season also became the backdrop to Zach's proposal last September! While walking along the leaf covered trails of the cider mill with donuts in one hand and hot cider in the other, Zach stopped by the water and got down on one knee. Much to Tina's shock and aw, Zach asked her to marry him and she only had one answer for the man of her dreams; a resounding yes!Read More
