detroit engagement session: alexis & mike


It’s always a honor when a fellow photographer asks you to capture what will surely be one of their most treasured memories. It’s also humorous because you’d think that if you’re a photographer, getting your portraits taken would be a breeze, but just like anyone else, Alexis + Mike swore they needed all the help they could get. As you’ll see, these two were about as natural as you could get in front of the lens and my camera absolutely loved them. They chose Belle Isle for their portraits, as behind the conservatory was the very spot that Mike proposed and I LOVE when my couples choose a place for their engagement portraits that hold special meaning to them. Not surprisingly, these two looked the part as Alexis’s killer floral heels were on point and Mike looked suave, but casual, in his suit. The air was cool and the evening light was stunning. I know I say this all the time, but such a stellar session makes me super excited to shoot your wedding this fall! xo

detroit engagement session: sara & matt


Sara+Matt were in from NY for a whirlwind weekend back in the mitten and I’m so glad we were able to shoot their engagement session in the city on Sunday evening before they headed back to the east coast. I absolutely fell in love with Sara’s fun, strappy, yellow dress when we began shooting in Belt Alley and Matt’s casual blue and yellow button down was the perfect compliment. I’ve mentioned this before, but it isn’t easy for adults to jump into a photo session and I loved how these two would crack up every time they looked at each other. I mean, genuine smiles and laughter always looks fabulous! After a quick outfit change into something a bit more casual, we headed around the city for some back-lit tree lined shots and ended at the beautiful gold doors of St. Aloysious. Congratulations to the both of you! I’ll be seeing you before you know it! xo

birmingham engagement session: cathy & matt


I love when my couples are down for anything as that means I can simply go where the light takes me. I liked these two immediately and this gut reaction was confirmed as we walked around downtown Birmingham getting to know each other. Cathy is so sweet and inviting; Matt seems pretty grounded and low key although they both assured me he has his moments! Like usual, downtown Birmingham certainly didn’t disappoint with the eclectic buildings and ivy filled walls. These two were so easy to photograph and I had to force myself to move on at certain locations as I would have kept them hostage all day. It was truly an awesome evening and I am super looking forward to shooting their fabulous wedding this fall! xo

ann arbor engagement session: megan & mitch


These two looked as though they were stepping out of a Ralph Lauren ad instead of simply getting out of their car when we arrived at the Nichols Arboretum. I adored them immediately. The peonies were in full bloom and it seemed as though half of Ann Arbor was at the Arb to witness it. I can’t say I blame them – stunning doesn’t even cut it! Megan+Mitch easily fell right into their poses, even with the onlookers in a packed garden (which is not an easy thing to do in the least!). My favorite part about these two is how easily Mitch’s playful nature elicits a genuine smile and laugh from Megan. They both were totally relaxed right from the get-go, looked incredible, are the sweetest ever and all of this made me super excited to shoot their wedding next Spring! A big congrats to the both of you! xo

livonia engagement session: jennifer & stan


Jen+Stan had a gorgeous Spring day for their engagement portraits, which is somewhat miraculous as there had been lots of rain! It was clear to see how much Stan adores his fiancée as he couldn't take his eyes off of her all evening. If nothing else, I often call the engagement session a dress rehearsal for the wedding day and these two had mentioned how glad they were that we had the opportunity to work on posing prior to the big day. It was so fun walking around the grounds and getting to know the two of them -- and they totally rocked their session. Congrats, again, to this wonderful couple! I'll see you next month! xo
