Colony Club Wedding: Krysten & Brandon


I always love when I can tell that a bride selected me as her photographer because our styles are perfectly aligned. I felt that way when Krysten’s sister, Alyssa, booked me to shoot her wedding a few years ago, and then I felt that way again when Krysten booked me for her big day. In both cases, I walked into the getting ready houses and thought “wow this house is so ‘me’ and looks as though I decorated it myself”. And Krysten’s wedding day design decisions were just as perfect. She looked incredibly stunning in her off-the-shoulder gown, and Brandon looked equally dapper in his classic tux. I loved the bridesmaids’ long red dresses with the pop of dusty pink for Alyssa’s dress. Their ceremony at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament was really beautiful (it was sweet to witness how Brandon looked at Krysten during the ceremony) and then we were off to the Colony Club for more photos of the bridal party and for their reception. The floral decor by Viviano's was gorgeous and I especially love the choice of a lighter green rather than bold green leaves in the florals. Their cake by Chrstine’s Cakes and Pastries was beautiful as well, and their band, Eclipse, hit it out of the park. These families are full of such nice people, it was really fun to see Alyssa and Brian again and to meet their little boy, and I’m so grateful to have been a part of this wedding! Congratulations, Krysten and Brandon!

Downtown Birmingham engagement session: Jamie & Sam


Oh my gosh, this couple couldn’t be ANY cuter together! Sam & Jamie literally light up around one another, which made it extra super fun for me to photograph them. I have to admit that I have major hair-envy of Jamie… I’d give almost anything to have hair as shiny and pretty as that! We did their session in downtown Birmingham on a grey and cold fall day, and we got lucky to get in just the right amount of photos before it started raining. I absolutely can’t wait to photograph their wedding next summer at the Townsend Hotel.

Downtown Detroit engagement session: Erica & Derek


Erica and Derek were totally laid-back about their engagement session - they were up for shooting anywhere that I suggested and just totally went with the flow, which was awesome! They were really into the murals around Detroit and I think we struck a great balance of backgrounds and got some great variety. And this cute couple was easy to photograph because, I mean, just look at them! Their wedding is coming up super quickly and, since they’re such a great couple and it will be at one of my favorite venues (The Detroit Athletic Club), I know it’ll be incredible!!!

downtown La Jolla engagement session: Kino & Greg


It was a lovely afternoon in Downtown La Jolla with Kino and Greg! While I do love when there’s lovely sunlight, an overcast day allows us to shoot in spots that might otherwise have bad lighting if it were sunny, and it was fun to utilize a few new spots. Kino and Greg were lovely and up for anything, including climbing under railings, walking on cliffs, etc. They’re super cute together and I’m beyond excited for their Southern California wedding next year. Congrats, you two!

Grosse Pointe Engagement Session: Abby & Robbie


Abby and Robbie are super cute together and it was such a fun evening at Grosse Pointe Farms Pier Park with them! I got to meet Abby’s whole family, which was awesome and they’re also adorable. And it was a super fun place to shoot because it’s where they got engaged (right in that gazebo) and Abby’s family has had a boat there for years and she grew up spending so much time there. I’m super excited for their DAC wedding next June, I know it’ll be amazing! XO
