My heart is so full, today, as I looked for blog images to share from Erin and Dmitri's beautiful wedding day which took place at the Belle Isle Casino in Detroit, MI! Not only was Erin SUCH a gorgeous bride, she was one of the happiest brides I’ve ever seen as well! . . .Read More
Where do I even begin with Rachel and Steven's beautiful wedding day in downtown Plymouth?! The morning of their wedding got off to an amazing start with a balmy 94 degrees and Rachel's bridal portraits ended with a vintage car cameo!! We were taking photos downtown near the Wilcox House when we spotted this mint-colored vintage car on the street. The girls and I made a beeline for the car and the nicest man, who owned the car, said we were welcome to take as many photos as we'd like with the car! Best impromptu wedding surprise ever! . . .Read More
Ashley + Tim couldn't have asked for a more beautiful wedding day in St. Joseph, MI! Their intimate ceremony took place right on silver beach and their reception at the Shadowland Ballroom included a carousel! Coolest cocktail hour ever goes to these two for having cotton candy and popcorn for their guests while they enjoyed rides on the whimsical carousel creatures!! This fun vibe worked beautifully with all of Ashley's details and the sea glass and lilac color palette. . .Read More
Chelsea and Nick are two of the most fun and laid-back couples I've had a chance to work with and even though they had so much anticipation and nerves leading up to the ceremony, these two were a dream to work with and made my job of capturing their love so effortless! They define a fun-loving, adventurous, outdoorsy couple in love and they are everything I hope for when I photograph clients! I wish for laughter and joy, for romantic portraits at sunset, and for down-to-earth, old souls with big hearts for the people in their lives! . . .Read More
For Rachel and Steven's engagement session I traveled to the Maumee Bay State Park in Oregon, OH, which was a new location for me! It was so much fun traveling out of the state for this "mini destination" beach engagement session and Rachel and Steven had the best attitudes. We had so much fun together and the whole night was just perfect!! . . .Read More
Jen and Nick's wedding way was so beautiful, elegant, and an all around classic wedding, but more importantly it was all for two people who have some of the kindest, most loving souls! Both Jen and Nick share a common love for golfing, and Nick even proposed to Jen on the golf course! It only made sense that they would get married outside on the green and overlooking the course at Great Oaks Country Club! . . .Read More
Throughout the majority of Lindsay and Corbin's wedding day at The Valley in Ann Arbor, MI we were dodging rain clouds! Thankfully for Lindsay and Corbin, these little bursts of rain seemed to last about ten minutes at a time every half hour. So for those thirty minutes between showers, the sky became this amazing overcast texture and was rain-free for them! . . .Read More
Brooke + Ben's Monroe, MI wedding began our 2015 wedding season on a snow covered March afternoon while the warm sun streamed through the skinny tree branches. Brooke and Ben's love story began in high school and 7 years later the ones that got away, came back together more in love than ever as they were truely meant to be. 10 years to the day from Brooke and Ben's first date, this reunited couple stood up in front of their close family and friends and promised to be there for each other for the rest of their lives.
Brooke + Ben you both have beautiful hearts and your love (and silliness) for each other was reflected in all the details and moments throughout your wedding at the Redeemer Fellowship Church in Monroe, MI and at the reception at the Stone Creek Banquet Facility in Flat Rock, MI. I am honored to have been among your close family and friends on this very special day in your life and relationship.

Photos aside, how do you envision your wedding to be like?
"Since it is going to be towards the end of winter, we decided to embrace the cold weather and do a snow/forest theme. Lots of candles, spruce and pine cones with artificial snow. I imagine a very simple and sweet ceremony, and quirky but fun reception. We are a couple of goofs so don't expect anything super rigid and uptight."
