I love an elegant, romantic wedding, don’t you? Today, I'm sharing some inspiration for brides planning an elegant and rustic winter wedding! I feel like some brides steer clear of rustic weddings all together because it can seem like it's as all burlap instead of black tie, but that's simply not the case at all! . . .Read More
Wanderlust hearts . . . This one's for you!
I wanted to feature something a little different on the blog today; travel! I have some serious wanderlust right now for warm breezes, hot sand, and the big blue ocean because I keep seeing my photographer friends jet off to Hawaii and Jamaica . . . So jealous! But I thought about how blessed I am to have traveled as much as I have and since it's Thursday, I thought it only fitting to look back on one of my favorite travel destinations of all time; Oia, Santorini in the Greek Islands!Read More
I believe your wedding should be a true reflection of your unique love story, and I think my 2016 weddings were so unique and amazing because every detail my couples thought of was personal to them! One cool thing about the state of Michigan is that there is virtually every landscape you could ever want as a backdrop for your wedding; urban cities, historic mansions, wide open countryside, picturesque vineyards, secluded lakes, evergreen forests, snow covered hills, vibrant fall colors, and hometown churches. . . .Read More

This post has quickly become one of my favorites of the year because it gives you a backstage pass to my life on the wedding day. And I'm a sucker for Blooper Reels! These photos show what it really looks like from the other side of the lens, you know, the photos behind the photos. Gathering up these images is such a fun way to look back on the last year, and to remind myself how incredibly thankful I am for this job.
This post is dedicated to all of my wedding couples who put up with all our silliness, who trust me when I suggest an unconventional idea, and who, at the end of the day, still love us even when we don't look nearly as glamorous as they do!Read More

Before Lauren and Marcus' engagement session at Belle Isle in Detroit, I sent them my Engagement Session Style Guide which includes everything from choosing the right location for your portraits to coordinating outfits to the little details you don't want to forget about. I think they totally ROCKED their engagement photos and can I gush one last time about their unbelievable outfits for a minute - gorgeous taste and Lauren has such an eye for style! I believe that because they were given the tools to prepare, that allowed both Lauren and Marcus to relax, be themselves, and to most importantly have fun at their engagement session! . . .Read More
