Stoney creek engagement session: Laura & Mitchell

4.18.19

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

4.18.19

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

2.19.19

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!

Stoney creek engagement session: Leah & Kevin

12.20.18

I had such an amazing time photographing Leah and Kevin’s engagement session. The couple is absolutely adorable, and the photo shoot was full of laughs!

We were lucky enough to have scheduled their session on the day of the first snowfall of winter. And, because Leah had chosen to be photographed at Stony Creek Metro Park, there was no shortage of beautiful scenery in which to capture this gorgeous duo.

Leah and Kevin were truly up for anything. They remained good humored despite me asking them to trek all over the park for the most perfect of backdrops. There even came a point when I asked them to sit on the ground for one of my favorite shots of the session. Despite the frigid temperatures, they never stopped smiling!

I absolutely cannot wait to photograph Leah and Kevin on their big day! Congratulations you two!

Detroit Engagement Session: Caitlin & Preston

12.12.18

Caitlin and Preston’s engagement shoot was nothing short of amazing.

Caitlin had arranged for the couple’s session to take place at one of my favorite venues to photograph- The Detroit Institute of Arts! If you’ve never been, you MUST go!!! The architecture is reminiscent of a castle and serves as the perfect backdrop to a romantic photo shoot.

The two were so much fun, and the session was full of laughs. It was a bit muddy that day. Never one to let a bit of dirt get in my way, I happily laid on the ground in order to capture angles that showcased the true beauty of the couple and their chosen setting.

Despite my muddy appearance, Caitlin and Preston tolerated my many posing and location requests. I had blast with this duo, and am excited to capture what is sure to be a beautiful winter wedding!
