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!

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

St. Clair Shores Engagement Session: Karen & Keith

7.3.18

I am so, so happy that Karen+Keith took me up on the engagement session as I had such a fun time walking around their local park with them in St. Clair Shores. I always tell my couples, if nothing else, think of this as the dress rehearsal for your wedding day. This gives us an hour to get to know each other, talk about posing and your likes/dislikes — and then I get to prove to you how incredible you look in your portraits before the big day! These two admitted to me that they do not love to be in front of the camera, but you would never know it! They easily fell into a rhythm and you can tell that they vibe off of each other’s energy. Keith has this calmness about him and Karen’s smile is so warm and welcoming — they are a perfect duo. Spending the evening with them made me even more excited to shoot their fun wedding next summer! A big congratulations to these two! xo

Grosse Pointe Engagement Session: Brittney & Shannon

6.28.18

It was my first time shooting at the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House and if every single bride+groom could get portraits done here, I would appreciate it. This location was a DREAM and then couple that with two stunning people in love, and well, I’ll just let these portraits speak for themselves. There really is not anything that I do not love about this session, especially how stellar both Brittney+Shannon looked with their outfit selections and how easy they were to photograph (!). I had the best time wandering around the premises with them during golden hour and they were down for anything, which I obviously always adore! Shooting their engagement portraits made me so excited to shoot their wedding in just a couple of months! Congratulations, you two! xo
