Stoney creek engagement session: Laura & Mitchell

4.18.19 - engagements by Stephanie

Laura and Mitchell are such a sweet and fun couple, and I had a fantastic time at their engagement session at Stony Creek Metro Park.  

This venue is particularly significant for the pair, as it’s where Mitchell proposed to Laura. When they told me this little detail, I just knew it would make the perfect backdrop for their photos!

I always push for my couples to take part in an engagement session with me. These shoots not only help me work on posing my couples and working out any “kinks”, but they also afford me the opportunity to get to know my brides and grooms better. After spending time with Laura and Mitchell I realized they are just the sweetest couple!

The pair are naturals in front of the camera. Their smiles are absolutely contagious, and their joy for life, and love they have for one another just shines!  

I am very much looking forward to their October wedding day!

stoney creek engagement session: Natalie & Nick's

4.18.19 - engagements by Stephanie

I had such a fabulous time photographing Natalie and Nick’s engagement session at Stoney Creek Metro Park. This couple is absolutely adorable, and we had a blast exploring the gorgeous surroundings of this lovely location!

Not only that, but the two picked the perfect spring day for their shoot. The sun was shining, and we actually had WARM March weather. That’s almost unheard of here in Michigan!

It was important to Natalie and Nick that their session be somewhat private. Luckily, we had the park (mostly) to ourselves that day! It was sheer kismet.  

After meeting and working with them in person, I have to say…. any nervousness they may have had concerning photography doesn’t show in their photos! They ROCKED their session, and not only posed well, but were super fun to work with!

I am so very excited for their wedding in May!

The Inn at st. john's wedding: Tracy & Philip

4.15.19 - weddings by Kristen Taylor

I absolutely LOVE when I’m hired to shoot the wedding for a sibling of a past bride or groom. Not only do I then know the family, but they trust me even more and allow me to just do my thing. So I was super excited when Tracy and Phil booked me soon after his sister’s wedding last year! In many ways it was a duplicate of his sister’s wedding (same getting ready locations, same church, most of the same vendors, including the awesome With Love Events who did the planning, the same veil, etc.), however in many ways it was also different as Tracy put her own spin on the style and chose The Inn at St. John's as the reception venue. All of the dresses were gorgeous (such unique bridesmaid dresses!), and Tracy looked absolutely stunning in her gown. They could not have gotten luckier with the weather since it was unusually warm and sunny for an early April day. Since there was gorgeous sunshine that was low in the sky and another bridal party already in the courtyard of the Inn at St. John's, I decided on a more natural background over the orange brick that surrounds the exterior of the venue. We then took their photos on the golf course side of the venue and I’m so glad that we did because it matched so well with their style and their stunning flowers, which were done by Blumz. I loved the very personalized reception decor and how the literary theme tied into their careers and passions. It was an all-around amazing day and I’m so happy for these two! Congratulations, Tracy and Phil!

Ann Arbor Engagement session: Kelsey & Tommy

4.2.19 - engagements by Kristin G.

Spring is in the air, the problem is that Michigan weather does not always get the message. Luckily, Kelsey + Tommy made looking warm and in love effortless during their engagement shoot in downtown Ann Arbor. These two have the best genuine smiles and I loved their vibe with one another as we walked around campus. And what a gorgeous couple! The best part is that they are sweet both inside+out. Hard to believe their wedding day is just around the corner! I’ll be seeing you two soon! Congratulations! xo

Downtown Detroit engagement session: Hilary & Larry

2.19.19 - engagements by Stephanie

I had such a wonderful time at this urban engagement shoot with Hilary and Larry.

Despite the frigid temperatures, this session was so enjoyable. This was due to how extremely sweet the couple is. Hilary and Larry are so much fun to be around, and I loved how comfortable they were with one another. Their constant smiles and laughter made for exceptional candid photos!

Plus, Downtown Detroit is one of my favorite places to shoot. With its iconic architectures, bold graffiti murals, and bustling city vibes, it’s the perfect location for memorable portraits! Thus, I was so happy when Hilary decided to hold her session at the Z lot, Belt Alley , and Detroit Library. Not only did we get a great variety, but we had fun exploring all the sights of Detroit!

I am very much looking forward to photographing this couple’s big day. Congratulations Hilary and Larry!
