Rochester Engagement session: Lea & David


It was so much fun photographing Lea and David’s engagement session at Rochester Park. The pair was up for anything, and we had the most beautiful, warm light, and the most enchanting locations.

The shoot was a bit “spur of the moment”. The couple wanted to have it on the weekend after meeting me. Normally, I’m completely booked on the weekends during the fall. However, as luck would have it, I had a cancellation and was able to accommodate their request. It was true kismet!

We started the session on the Paint Creek Trail and took photos as we wandered toward the park. There are so many diverse and lovely spots. The trail and park are a photographer’s dream come true!

It was so fun working with Lea and David, and I simply can’t wait to photograph them on their big day!

Downtown Birmingham engagement session: Alyson & Teddy


I had such an amazing time photographing Alyson and Teddy’s engagement at Booth Park in downtown Birmingham. With its natural setting, wooded trails, and lovely pines, it made for the perfect location for our session together.

I especially loved this shoot because the couple decided to incorporate their lovable dog into the photos. I absolutely adore animals of all kinds and feel like I’m becoming the “pet photographer” of KT&Co. LOL. Almost half of my couples ask if they can include their pups in the photos, and I always happily oblige.

Alyson wore the most gorgeous dress that perfectly complemented the soft fall foliage. And, Teddy looked pretty dapper himself. Plus… the dog. I mean, can it get any cuter?

The pair is absolutely adorable, and it was so fun working with them. I can’t wait to photograph their big day!

Ann Arbor Engagement session: Katie & Matt


I had so much fun at Katie and Matt’s engagement session at the law quad on the U of M campus. I haven’t had too many chances to shoot in Ann Arbor- especially with such wonderful weather.

Every spot made for the perfect backdrop, and I was simply in awe at all of the lovely possibilities for shooting locations!

As an added bonus, Katie and Matt met and graduated from U of M. And, although I’m a State fan and grad myself, I could see why the two are so enamored with the campus. It’s always so nice when a couple has a personal reason for choosing an engagement session location!

They are adorable together and are so so sweet. You can tell how much they care for one another from the moment you meet them, and I couldn’t be more excited to photograph their big day!

Grosse Pointe Engagement Session: Erin & Seth


I had such an amazing time photographing Erin and Seth’s engagement session in Patterson Park in Grosse Pointe. With its enchanting gazebo, beautiful boardwalk, and blossoming trees, the location made for a picture perfect setting to document this couple’s love for one another.

I met the pair at Erin’s parents' house where she grew up. And, because family was in from out of town, we had our own cheerleading team at the session itself. I was able to meet a good chunk of the couple’s extended family, and our walk to the park afforded me the opportunity to get to know Erin and Seth a little better.

Not only is the pair extremely photogenic, but they are sweet and funny as well. In addition to the “normal” shots, we took a few silly ones- at the couple’s request.

Erin and Seth are extremely fun to work with. I just know their wedding is going to be amazing. The love they have for one another is evident, and I truly can’t wait to photograph their big day!

The Colony Club Wedding: Alyssa & Royden


I absolutely love photographing weddings.  They are beautiful, fast-paced, exciting, and so very emotive.  Alyssa and Royden’s big day was no exception.

The couple’s choice of venues was exquisite.  My team began the day by taking photos of the bride and groom getting ready at the Detroit Foundation Hotel.  If you’ve never been to this amazing location, you are truly missing out.  It was a great setting for both detail and candid group shots. Not to mention the gorgeous lighting was perfect for showcasing Alyssa’s beauty!  Doesn’t she look stunning in her dress?

We next traveled to one of my favorite Detroit churches- St. Anne de Detroit.  With it’s gorgeous ceilings and amazing architecture, it proved to be both a romantic and charming locale for Alyssa and Royden’s nuptials.  

We then wrapped up the event at the Colony Club- another of my faves.  From heartfelt speeches, to sweet first dances- their reception was absolutely flawless.  The Rolling Pin made the most beautiful gold and white cake that went perfectly with the Colony Club's gold accents. Kevin, of Twigs & Branches did a wonderful job with the floral and centerpiece details.

The day was truly picture perfect, and I feel so lucky to have been a small part of such a wonderful event.  I wish this sweet couple the absolute best on their future journeys, and know they will spend a lifetime of happiness together.
