It was clear from the beginning of the session that these two are so perfectly made for each other. Shawn is fun and outgoing and Danielle is sweet and kind. I am so blessed to have met these two and to be documenting their love story. We walked the beach at Kirk Park, where they often sit together and watch …

Ashley + Ryan | Ann Arbor Engagement Photographer

“I hope that girl in the cute dress and bright lipstick is Ashley,” I thought to myself as I pulled up to Matthaei Botanical Gardens, because I was totally into her style. Lucky for me, it was her and she and Ryan were so nice when we met. It was a hot summer day in Ann Arbor and these two …

Hannah + Ben | Detroit Engagement Photographer

I’ve known Hannah’s parents for a long time — I mean, literally my entire life — so I was thrilled when I heard Hannah was engaged and looking for a photographer.

Maddie + Cade | Midland Engagement Photographer

Maddie and Cade were honestly worried they wouldn’t be photogenic — can you believe that? Dow Gardens is a beautiful location all year round and truly looks different from week to week, but in my opinion, it’s especially pretty in late spring/early summer. Even though they were both a bit nervous for their session, they were so comfortable and loving …

Shalyn + Andrew | Grand Rapids Engagement Photographer

When we were discussing locations for their engagement session, we were dreaming of warm spring weather and being surrounded by beautiful tulips in Holland at the Tulip Festival. Unfortunately, Michigan had other plans for the tulips this year so we made our way to Grand Rapids for brews and beautiful murals. If you’ve never been to The Knickerbocker New Holland …

Stephanie + Ricky | Marshall Engagement Photographer

When we were choosing a location for engagement photos, Stephanie asked if I’d be willing to travel to Marshall to the brewery where she and Ricky had their first date. Of course I said yes! I mean, you have your own special table with your names on it, how could we pass that idea up? The Dark Horse Brewing Co. …

Allison + John | Mt. Pleasant Engagement Photographer

Would you believe it if I told you these two said they’ve never had professional photos taken? They were actually worried they would be awkward or difficult to photograph — obviously that wasn’t the case. We lucked out with our timing of their October engagement session because we got such a perfect fall backdrop in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. These two …
