In any given year, I typically only have a handful of family sessions. Which, although a little sad to me with my complete adoration for photographing children, leaves me super grateful for the families I do get to be a part of. Being a married gal without kids, I really enjoy watching the dynamic of a young family as they grow. The parents, the parents with their...

...speaking of things I’m grateful for – THIS wedding day. Oh my goodness. We actually smiled and laughed all day. I actually remember several points throughout the day where Drew and I turned to look at each other at the same exact time because we were so floored by all the love and joy going on. Andy&Charlie are CRAZY about each other. It’s...

The sweetness of recounting Bryan&Courtney’s day here is a gift. He truly treats her like a princess, and she looks at him with an ever present sparkle in her eye… aka they’ve got a beautiful future ahead of them, and it was such an honor to help tell this part of their story! And as stunning at the Detroit Yacht Club is, and as beautiful of a day...

I remember clearly getting Jess’ email back sharing a bit of why she and Tom are such a great pair that they want to commit to forever. I immediately read it out loud to Drew I loved it so much. Long story short… they’re just the best of friends. From their shared love of hunting to the fact that Jess just knows Tom has every skill and then some to...

To be honest, I sit over here at a bit of a loss for words in regards to what to say about this particular wedding. So, I think to not overdo it, and because I’m about to blog way too many photos that will tell the story better than me anyway, I will keep my words brief today. (Well, ya know, brief for me. Whatever.)

These two people are incredibly...

Today is the wonderful day I get to share our second wedding adventure to the beautiful campuses of Notre Dame and St. Mary’s! This time, to celebrate the marriage of our new friends RJ&Arielle. And boy… are they fantastic. I think this wedding was the fastest wedding booking ever. Arielle and I had a phone conversation that lasted maaaaaybe all of 10...

Earlier this month we had the absolute honor of photographing our lovely new friends Larry&Lauren’s wedding, and boy… did we leave with a full heart! Drew actually grew up going to church with Lauren when they were very wee ones. (And I’ve seen photos… YEESH were they cute.) Through the means of facebook, Lauren happened to notice that Drew...

They put the people around them at ease. Individually, and even more so when they’re together. They listen to your every word and care about each one. They will do anything to help you at any time that is humanly possible. They will make you laugh, and laugh when you’re funny as well. :) They have phenomenal taste in, oh, everything in life. They have, share...

The first moment I pointed my camera at these two for our engagement session (a weirdly cold May day – thanks, Michigan ;)), I was just floored by their love and admiration for each other. The images below will speak more than my words could ever could about this fact, so I’ll just let you see for yourself. It’s beautiful. And I basically cried a few...

...despite the energy of Grand Haven summer, I really think the epicenter of fun and celebration was happening with these two and their wedding day. Holy smokes, so much laughter. Rachel was smiling (and squealing with joy) from the moment she arrived at the church, and it didn’t subside even a little. Sean and his (awesome) groomsmen arrived and quickly jumped...

Meet Matt&Michele! Their wedding will be ending our wedding season this year, and I think it will be just perfect. Before this session we had only Skyped, and you really wouldn’t have guessed it. They were so delightfully comfortable with my camera alllll up in their space, and we laughed like old friends. :) Honestly, I think it has everything to do with how...

This beautiful wedding I get to share with you all today marks our very first wedding of the 2014 wedding season. And I have to tell you, I can’t imagine a better wedding to start the year with. Ceremony held at the incredible St. Clement Parish, followed by the brunch to end all brunches at the Dunlays On Clark Wine Bar just up the road – all in the...
