Welcome to my blog!
I photograph...

because a memory should never be lost.
because love is all we need.
because today will be gone tomorrow.


I'm so excited to share these photos! Emily and Dave are such a fun, down to earth couple who enjoy the simple things in life. Like a good record, or a nice glass of wine, or a vintage car... :) Dave is a photographer as well, so I'm also a tad nervous to be posting these images, but there is no better compliment than to be hired by a fellow artist. I'm thrilled to be capturing their wedding up in northern Michigan next spring! I can only imagine the details that they will put into the wedding. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!

Emily is a personal trainer and a Shaklee representative! Doesn't she look incredible?

I sometimes cannot believe how blessed I am in my job to be able to go different places. I love my hometown of Detroit, but it's nice to see the world! :) Emily and Justin asked me to come out to Chicago to shoot heir engagement and wedding, and we had a blast! It wasn't my first time in the windy city, but definitely my first time shooting. Yay! I loved ever corner... I hope you enjoy these photos and come right back, their wedding blog is next!

So excited to post these images from the Black Pearl in An Arbor. They are so incredible over there and let us shoot for like an hour! :) Jaclyn and Steve wanted to have their engagement session involve something that fit their personalities. When i found out their personalities had to do with martinis... well that was right up my ally! :)

Enjoy!
