Have you ever discovered somewhere new in your area that is like a secret place - a total hidden gem in the middle of the city? Well, that is exactly what happened with the park where we held Sarah and Nick's engagement session...

To all of my wonderful couples, as our exciting adventures start with your engagement session, here are some tips to make your planning simple and stress-free!

Every little girl wants to be a Disney princess when she grows up, but how many actually realize that dream?  Well, one of my brides, Jessica, did just that!  She spent a season in Orlando extending the promise of that wish to all of the wide-eyed little girls visiting Disney World with that vision.  And when I recently had the pleasure of photographing Jessica's  engagement session, s...

A few days after Christmas, I had the pleasure of meeting Kristy and Jared as their engagement photographer.  To close out each year, Kristy’s family travels from across the country in both directions to spend the holidays together.  This year, they had an extra special reason to celebrate, as Kristy and Jared had just gotten engaged!  The home where the family shares the Christmas and...

People joke that we can have all four seasons in one week.  Well, this year it has been more true than ever before. Whether you believe in global warming, the romantic but tragic tale of Persephone and Hades, or an all-powerful Mother Nature, there is no question that the weather has its very own ideas of how to behave lately.  Fortunately I have beautiful couples and individuals who w...

Coastal sand dunes are a very unique, naturally occurring phenomenon.  The Great Lakes in the Midwest United States have a very special dune ecosystem which border almost their entire, massive coastline.  People in Michigan know they have hit that blessed area known as "up north" once they start to see the dunes.  If you have ever tried to climb up or down a set of dunes, you know that...

Happy Monday everyone!  People have always been attracted to shiny things - searching for them, collecting them, and showing them off (*cue Gollum’s “my precioussssss”).  Especially in the form of jewelry.  They sparkle, they make us feel pretty (or handsome!), and they are often seen as a mark of wealth and privilege.  The first diamond engagement ring dates back to the 15th Century;...

Jenna's three requests for engagement session with the love of her life were: water, sunset, and intimate moments.   What a wonderful combination to celebrate the love of these two beautiful souls!  Jenna and Ryan have been together for almost a decade, sharing so many triumphs and struggles together.  They both knew that they would eventually be planning their wedding, but Ryan still...

Happy Monday!  I hope that your day has begun on a great note, and am happy to be spending some fun time together to kick off the week!

Last Thursday, I had the enormous pleasure of taking my husband and my parents to see the music icon, Bob Seger, before a hometown crowd.   The four of us have a long and impressive list of live concerts we have attended, and we have all...

Happy New Year everyone!!  2018 has been a wonderfully crazy year!  I had the honor and privilege of capturing wedding day memories for amazing couples, the magic of which will now last forever!  Each couple had wildly different themes, color palettes, and styles which truly reflected their personalities and their love for each other.   We battled weather extremes together, I put tons...
