Downtown Detroit engagement session: Maddie & Joshua

10.22.18

The weather had been iffy all morning, but I got that text from Maddie in the early afternoon saying that we were going for it no matter what! Turns out, it was the best decision as it was a gorgeous Detroit fall day in the city. I met Maddie+Josh at The Belt downtown and had the best time as we wandered through the alleyway amongst all the bright, funky design. I have to laugh because these two were adamant during their consult that they could not do a serious pose and, as you can see, they were SO EASY to photograph the entire evening. We made our way over to Capital Park (a fantastic idea of theirs!) and up to the rooftop of the Z Garage for some skyline shots. You know I’m going to say I could have kept shooting all evening! Thank you for a super fun time, you two! xo

Lily Krut Bat Mitzvah

10.15.18

Ever since I had the pleasure of shooting Lily’s portraits earlier this summer, I had been looking forward to her Bat Mitzvah. Not only is she gorgeous, but she’s also super smart and witty and had me smiling behind the camera with her commentary the whole time. I met her and her sweet (and stunning!) family at Temple Israel for some portraits prior to the service. After Temple, everyone headed off to The Townsend Hotel for a super fun brunch where the theme screamed LIVE, LOVE, LILY. I could not get enough of everything – the hot pink and green décor, the glitter and henna tattoos and even a magician who had stumped both the kids and adults alike. It was obvious that everyone was having the best time! Plus, Lily was all smiles and my heart warmed as she made the most heartfelt toast of gratitude to her family. A huge congratulations to you, Lily! xo

Downtown Detroit engagement session: Emily & Thaddeus

7.18.18

We’ve been having a serious heat wave here in the mitten the past two weeks and, admittedly, I was a little nervous for Emily+TJ’s engagement portraits. I ask my couples to snuggle together during our sessions and I do not want them to melt while doing so! I was all sorts of happy when we kept the session as scheduled and, while it was warm, there was a nice breeze close to sunset on Belle Isle and these two absolutely rocked their session. I loved their outfit selections, as Emily’s LBD and TJ’s suit complimented both the architecture and natural vibe on the island. These two were absolutely at ease and it makes me even more stoked to be shooting their wedding next year! Congratulations, you two! xo

birmingham engagement session: Molly & Jay

7.11.18

I walked into the heart of Shain Park and found Molly+Jay casually waiting for me on a nearby bench and I smiled as these two are just super adorable. I think my favorite part about them is how Jay can stand behind her, give her a bear hug, and easily see right over her head. As soon as we started shooting, I could not stop grinning as Molly has the absolute best smile — her whole face lights up and it makes Jay’s do the same. I was also super impressed because Molly had her thick, dark hair pulled back in a ponytail (it was rather windy) and she told me she can take it down if I think it would look better in some images. Wait, what? You can take your hair out of a ponytail and not have the ridiculous ridge where the elastic band was? Mind blown. ;) We walked around downtown Birmingham as I got to know a bit about them, their east coast travels and we ducked into some alleyways for portraits. Thank you both for trusting me as we weaved our way around the city! I wish you both nothing but a lifetime of happiness! Congratulations!



Best,

Birmingham Engagement session: Marionna & Kyle

7.10.18

These two were a breath of fresh air as they walked up to me in downtown Birmingham for their engagement session. Marionna looked so ethereal in her flowing maxi-dress and Kyle was so handsome in his grey suit; you know I am going to say I could have taken their portraits for hours. We walked around the city, taking advantage of the beautiful evening light and the textured urban walls. These two made it so easy on me; falling into a rhythm and naturally posing closely and cuddly with one another. It always warms my heart when I get to know my couples and find that they are as sweet on the inside as they are beautiful on the outside. It truly makes me look forward to shooting their wedding day this fall! I’ll be seeing you two before we know it! xo



Best,
