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

grosse pointe engagement session: emily & kenny


When we pulled into this private Grosse Pointe park and began taking portraits along the waterfront, I jokingly told Emily and Kenny that I needed their park pass so I could take all my couples here. Except, I really wasn’t joking. This location was exquisite and perfectly complimented these two! For being planners, they have such an easy-going nature about them and it made me super excited to shoot their wedding next September! We then popped over to a nearby marina and I was in LOVE between their adorableness, the color of the masts of the sailboats and the ethereal evening light that surrounded them as we wrapped up their session. A huge congrats to these two! xo
