St. Clair Shores Engagement Session: Karen & Keith

7.3.18

I am so, so happy that Karen+Keith took me up on the engagement session as I had such a fun time walking around their local park with them in St. Clair Shores. I always tell my couples, if nothing else, think of this as the dress rehearsal for your wedding day. This gives us an hour to get to know each other, talk about posing and your likes/dislikes — and then I get to prove to you how incredible you look in your portraits before the big day! These two admitted to me that they do not love to be in front of the camera, but you would never know it! They easily fell into a rhythm and you can tell that they vibe off of each other’s energy. Keith has this calmness about him and Karen’s smile is so warm and welcoming — they are a perfect duo. Spending the evening with them made me even more excited to shoot their fun wedding next summer! A big congratulations to these two! xo

Grosse Pointe Engagement Session: Brittney & Shannon

6.28.18

It was my first time shooting at the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House and if every single bride+groom could get portraits done here, I would appreciate it. This location was a DREAM and then couple that with two stunning people in love, and well, I’ll just let these portraits speak for themselves. There really is not anything that I do not love about this session, especially how stellar both Brittney+Shannon looked with their outfit selections and how easy they were to photograph (!). I had the best time wandering around the premises with them during golden hour and they were down for anything, which I obviously always adore! Shooting their engagement portraits made me so excited to shoot their wedding in just a couple of months! Congratulations, you two! xo

Royal Oak Engagement Session: Calli & Mario

6.14.18

I’m not sure I could have had a bigger smile on my face when I first saw Calli + Mario when we met up for portraits in downtown Royal Oak. You guys, talk about style! Calli looked incredible in her LBD and I adored Mario’s ensemble, with his button down, ankle pants and loafers. They also brought along their pride + joy and this little fella totally stole the show. These two were so easy to photograph and it made me super thrilled that I’ll be shooting their wedding so soon! After walking around the city with its fun urban texture, we ended at Mario’s family’s restaurant, Trattoria Da Luigi for dinner and a glass of red. I’m totally smitten with these two and, I’m not just saying this, if you have not been to this restaurant for some Italian flavor, you MUST GO. Thank you both for such a fun evening! I’ll be seeing you before we know it! Congrats, again! xo

detroit engagement session: Beth & Eric

2.14.18

Trying to pick a perfect Winter day for an outdoor shoot certainly has its challenges! Beth and I stayed in close contact throughout the week prior to their engagement session, as the weather was above freezing, but supposed to be overcast and grey. We made a game-time decision to just go for it and I am SO GLAD we did! The skies opened up and we had a lovely January day. During our consult, I pretty much fell in love with Beth and Eric and everything they have planned for their wedding. Not only are they ridiculously gorgeous (is this real life?), but they are both so incredibly grounded and sweet. We began our session at the Aloft Hotel inside The David Whitney, where they will be transforming this open, industrial space into their fantastic wedding reception. I am so ready to see this transformation and to be blown away! After some indoor shots, we headed outdoors and strolled down Woodward to capture the cityscape and you know I love me some downtown Detroit. After a quick outfit change, we ended the evening inside the Detroit Foundation Hotel, where these two got cozy in the intimate atmosphere of the Apparatus Room. It was a perfect session and I cannot wait to see you two again later this year! Congratulations! xo

detroit engagement session: katie & alex

12.22.17

I cannot begin to tell you how much I LOVED this sweet engagement session in downtown Detroit. Not only did this gorgeous couple step outside the box and do a winter engagement session (they are truly my fave!), but Katie+Alex were totally open to doing and going wherever — a photographer’s dream! We began at the DIA, which was super fun for me because FOR ONCE we had as much time as we wanted while we shot in front of the gorgeous marble building. I tend to only head here with my bride+groom on their wedding day and it was so nice to be able to take our time and stop when we were finished; not because we were out of time! After we got these classic shots, we headed into Campus Martius and I was truly in heaven. These two made it look so easy to take portraits in front of hundreds of others walking (and gawking!) around the city. The holiday lights were spectacular, but I have to say, my favorite part was at the end when we wandered into the adorable pop up shops! Thank you both for being so fun! I’ll be seeing you this summer! xo
