Michigan wedding

Nancy & Mike

Here’s a throw back to 2017! Somehow this wedding never made it to my blog. This adorable couple and their pups had one of the best barn weddings to date! There was so much attention to detail. On top of all that, Nancy & Mike had one of the most fun bridal parties I’ve ever worked with!

Amy & Cooper

Amy & Cooper got married at the Ann Arbor City Club. This was my first time at the venue, and it did not disappoint. Just as we finished their first look, the rain started, and it poured! Thankfully the sun came back out, and the venue’s employees worked quickly to dry out the seats for the couples outdoor ceremony. I have to send a shout out to their florist Pear Street Flowers, who was the mastermind behind all the floral arrangements, including the flowers on the trellis. Some how they still looked amazing even after the storm!

Anders & Katy


Anders & Katy got married at St. Joan of Arc in St. Clair Shores. This church is a dream for photographers, with all of it's natural light. After they made it official, we headed over to Paint Creek Country Club in Lake Orion. Here we were able to take full advantage of their beautiful course. With help from their staff and some golf carts, the couple and I headed out to some of their prime photo ops. 

Katy & Anders were a joy to work with. Easy to pose, and natural together. Their entire bridal party was a good laugh, and the time flew by. 

Their reception was elegant and simple. Lots of greenery, candles, shades of gold and crisp white linens. A delicious dinner was served before dancing started. When I left the floor was still packed!


Samantha & Marcus

Samantha & Marcus had the perfect day. We were sure to be rained out, but instead ended up with great weather and some shade! Samantha & Marcus got married at Lazy J Ranch in Milford, MI. This was my first time at this venue, and I'm excited to go back. Samantha and Marcus, along with their families and wedding planner put together a wedding with just the right mix of rustic and elegant. They hired Fifty Amp Fuse as their wedding band, and once the party started, it did not stop. We were all surprised when mid Father/ Daughter and Mother/Son dance, the foursome broke out into a choreographed dance! 


Megan & Eric

Last May Megan & Eric "tied the knot" at The Valley of Frutig Farms in Ann Arbor, Michigan. This has quickly become a new favorite venue, with it's endless possibilities for photos. The wedding was beautiful. Megan had put a great deal of thought into the details and stunned in an ivory and pale pink dress. This couple was ear to ear smiles, and you could tell thoroughly enjoyed their wedding. With all the stress that goes into planning, it's makes my heart happy to see my couples really enjoy and be present on their day. Megan and Eric had such a wonderful family and bridal party. Everyone was so happy to see these two hitched!


Kristina & Kyle

Talk about a blond bombshell. I loved Kristina and her family the first time I met them. When I met Kyle, at their engagement session, I found out this couple has great chemistry and a ton of love for each other. Kristina was the epitome of glamour on her wedding day. When she put on that dress my jaw dropped. As the day progressed it was incredible to see how they moved together. The couple and I, along with their large group of friends we headed to the D for some photos at the DIA and the Joe. Their entire bridal party was a blast. At the end of the reception Kyle even DJ's a bit of his party. A previous bride and groom of mine was also in attendance. I can't thank my clients enough for recommending me to their friends and families. 


Derek & Brittney

So excited to finally have time to catch up on my blog and online portfolio. I've just started going through my work from 2017 and have so much to share!

First up is Derek & Brittney. They got married in June 2017 at Waldenwoods in Howell Michigan. The venue was beautiful. Brittney had paid such close attention to detail, her wedding looked like it could be straight out of a magazine. I was literally jumping with joy all day. We had the perfect weather, the perfect couple and the perfect venue. 

The rain held off just long enough for an outdoor ceremony and all of their family formals. Mid dinner, we looked outside and found we had been graced with the most beautiful sunset. A quick scramble for some lights, and we flew outside, just in time to capture this couple in the sunset.
