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!


Trevor & Rebecca- Engagement

Trevor and Rebecca met while working at Comerica Park. So, it was only fitting that we did their engagment session there. It was so fun, and admittidly strange, to be there with an empty stadium. This was my first tiem shooting inside of Comerica, and I hope to go back again! Trevor and Rebecca are getting married this July and I can't wait to see this sweet couple tie the knot!


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. 


Nicholas & Abigail

Abigail & Nicholas were one of a kind! I hadn't met either before the big day, and when I first walked into the bridal suite I knew it was going to be a great day. Abigail's custom made dress was stunning. She was so uniquely herself and it paid off. I was thrilled to be a part of this adorable couples big day and to be able to share their love with all of you.

Enjoy!


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.
