AJ & Brenda

Brenda & AJ got married on their grandparent’s property up in Cromwell, MI. The ceremony was set back behind the home, right up next to the river. They had a friend officiate, which added a special touch. Their reception was held at the Blue Water Convention Center, which has great views and great food!

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!

Frank & Emily

This engagement session was FUN. I don’t think it was the cold, dampness or the threatening rain, it was this couple who were easy to laugh with and who undoubtedly can not get enough of each other. Being part of Frank and Emily’s wedding in 2019 will absolutely be a highlight for me. We did their engagement session at Nichols Arboretum, with a short stop at the University of Michigan’s Law Quad.

Crystal & Justin Engagements

These two are already married ;), but I never got around to showing off their engagement photos, so here it goes. These were done at Independence Oaks County Park, just a few short weeks before their big day!

Alyssa & Robert

Alyssa and Robert got married at Crystal Gardens in Southgate, MI. Their wedding was so fun and full of smiles. We JUST missed the rain during their first look, but thankfully the rain went away in time for us to finish portraits at their venue. Their wedding wasn’t just pretty, it was fun and when I left the dance floor was packed!

Alyssa and Robert were recommended to me from past clients (who were also at the wedding <3 ) I’m always so thankful for word of mouth praise. Plus I get to visit with my past couples again, which I adore.

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!
