ann arbor engagement session: Alex & Blair


I fell in love with these two the instant that we met at the law quad on U of M’s campus. Alex + Blair have such style, killer smiles and they are both so genuine that it was hard to not adore them immediately. The evening of their March session was the nicest day of the year thus far, which made me happy since these two were only in for the weekend from the east coast. Since it was the first real Spring day, campus was buzzing- as everyone was out enjoying the weather and these two were great sports as we’d wait until the coast was clear to shoot our portraits. As these two met on campus, they took me to some of their favorite spots and we shared lots of laughs, especially when Blair took charge at the end of our session and orchestrated their final poses. These two are super fun and it made me even more excited to shoot their wedding this July! xo

birmingham engagement session: katie & nicholas


You know, if there is sunshine on a February evening in the mitten- I'll take the cold over milder, overcast temps any day! I met Katie + Nick in downtown Birmingham for their engagement shoot and adored them immediately. They are both so down-to-earth and I really enjoyed laughing with them and getting to know who they are as we walked around the city. You'd never know it was cold, as they absolutely rocked their session and I always enjoy when my couple trusts me enough to stop traffic for that perfect shot (gah! That light!)! It makes me super excited to shoot their fabulous wedding this summer! A huge congrats to the both of you! xo

detroit engagement session: nicole & chris


I was pleasantly surprised when Nicole told me that she and Chris had chosen the Detroit Public Library as their portrait location. I say this because an indoor location is usually chosen during the frigid Michigan winters. I LOVED being able to shoot both inside and out this time of year with the stunning architecture both the library and then on the campus of Wayne State University. What easily stands out the most about these two is how much they love to laugh and how genuine their smiles are in their portraits. They both looked fantastic all glammed up and when we began posing, I barely had to give any direction with Nicole’s dance background as her posture and body awareness were on point! I adore you both and a big congratulations! xo

canton engagement session: christine & brenden


I love that Christine suggested her hometown park as the location for her and Brenden’s engagement session. Don’t get me wrong, I love when my couples select well-known, beautiful locations, but there is just something a little extra when the location also has meaning to my couple. This is a place these two have frequented together during their courting years, so although I had never shot there before, I was all for it and it turned out to be the perfect spot! Not only was this couple super stunning, but Kaiser also looked rather dapper in his bow tie. I could have shot these two all night between the weeping willows, wooden bridges and golden evening light. A big congrats to the both of you! xo

stony creek engagement session: alyssa & justin


These two have this calming aura about them that immediately puts you at ease and this definitely showed during their gorgeous light-filled session! Alyssa+Justin were dressed perfectly (that dress!) and we fell into such a nice, easy rhythm so quickly. I couldn’t get enough of Justin’s warm smile and how the light filtered through Alyssa’s gorgeous hair. I also love that they chose an ethereal environment for their engagement portraits when their wedding is in the heart of Detroit. The light was stunning and I was thrilled, especially knowing that Alyssa is a photographer herself. A big congratulations to the both of you! A year seems like far away, but I’ll be seeing you again before you know it! xo
