It is not uncommon for couples to schedule multiple events or meetings to happen for the short time they are in town. This is very true for Kelsey and Paul as they live in Indiana but are getting married at Revival Wedding Barn in Dowagiac, Michigan. Kelsey’s mom actually was able to help find this […]

South Haven Beach Engagement Krysten found me through Instagram thanks to a beautiful wedding I photographed at Bay Pointe Woods. I will forever be grateful for wedding days like Lindsey & Hunter’s because they’ve led me to other amazing couples getting married at either Bay Pointe Woods or Pay Pointe Inn! Once I had spoken […]

Downtown Kalamazoo Engagement The hustle and bustle and 5 kids and work and yet coming all together in love? Yeah, that’s a pretty cool combo when it works well and with Courtney & Adam, it works REALLY well! I had such a joy photographing their family and their downtown Kalamazoo engagement session! I was really […]

Lincoln Park Chicago Engagement What a whirlwind TikTok has been for me and I’m so entirely grateful that not only have amazing couples listened to the various advice I’ve given, but many have actually hired me to photograph their wedding across the United States now and especially in the Chicago area! Caitlin and Jake were […]

New Buffalo Winter Engagement It was a surreal winter day in January as I got ready to photograph Jess and Javi’s New Buffalo winter engagement session in Michigan. These Chicago natives wanted this small beach town because they often visit it in the warm, summer months (Michigan’s best time of year). We had a limited […]

Saugatuck, Michigan Engagement What’s the best way to start your engagement session? While it might be different for everyone, I love when we begin at an ice cream parlor, specifically Kilwin’s at any of their locations on Lake Michigan. That’s exactly how Emma & Andrew’s Saugatuck Michigan Engagement began and it definitely set the mood […]

Grand Haven Beach Engagement After Samantha & Andrew’s engagement session, if these two aren’t swinging and dipping and busting out all the dance moves, I’ll be disappointed! They got the rhythm, the love, the enthusiasm, and take directions like nobody’s business! They even chose one of my all-time favorite places for a Lake Michigan beach […]

Rainy Fall Engagement Session Have you ever met a couple that just lights up the room when together? They seem to share this ability to always finish each other’s sentence, get the entire room bursting out in so much laughter, tears are rolling down your cheeks, and also can’t keep their hands off one another? […]

Riverside Park Engagement Grand Rapids, Michigan When a couple finds you on TikTok and they just know they have to have you as their wedding photographer how could I not feel so completely honored and in awe?!?!  Shannon & Mike live in Florida and are getting married at CityFlats Hotel in Downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan […]
