Edsel & Eleanor Ford House engagement session: Summer & Michael


I adore all of my couples so very much and especially enjoy getting to know them at their engagement sessions. 
It’s a wonderful time to gauge how they photograph, and to see how well you work together with them. 
Sometimes, however, there is a special “spark” between photographer and subjects, and you just.. pun intended… “click”!  

This was how it was at Summer and Michael’s engagement session at the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House.  

Summer had a very unique vision for her photos, and was truly hoping for amazing poses that would lend an editorial feel to her photographs. I think we very much accomplished her goals, with most of the credit going to this amazing pair!

They came dressed to impress.  Summer looked gorgeous in her striking black gown and statement earrings, while Michael was positively dapper in his attire.  

Their wardrobe, coupled with an amazing setting, truly sparked my creativity.  We had so much fun exploring the grounds, and I am so excited for them to see the images from our time together.  

I feel blessed that this couple chose me as their wedding photographer, and am excited for their big day!

stoney creek engagement session: Samantha & Terrance


I had such a great time at Samantha and Terrance’s engagement session! They are such a sweet and charming couple, and I couldn’t be happier that they chose me to photograph their upcoming nuptials!

When we were deciding on a location for their e-session, Samantha mentioned that she wanted to incorporate the couple’s pet- Lilo -into some of the photos. Anyone who knows me, KNOWS how much I adore dogs, and how much I love when my couples bring them to their photoshoots. So, imagine my glee when I saw the fluff that is Lilo. I think she was a bit put out that she wasn’t in more of the photos. However, she rocked all the shots that she was in! And, of course, so did Samantha and Terrance.

It is clear that the two are very much in love, and I am SO excited for their New Year’s Eve wedding. I just know it’s going to be amazing!

Stoney creek engagement session: Laura & Mitchell


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


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!

Downtown Detroit engagement session: Hilary & Larry


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!
