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 […]

Downtown Detroit Engagement Don’t get me wrong, I love when people find me off of social media platforms like Instagram but man oh man is there nothing quite like meeting a couple and just clicking with them. Literally, I know that I could so easily lose track of time chatting away and having such a […]

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 […]

South Haven Beach Engagement Have you ever met a couple that isn’t afraid to laugh at themselves and you constantly feel like you need to have your camera ready for all of their cute candid moments? Ok, maybe I got a little too specific there but truthfully, Abby & Ivan might just be the couple […]

Downtown Kalamazoo Engagement The hustle and bustle and 5 kids and work and yet coming all together in love?

I was really […]

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 […]

Chicago Suburb Winter Engagement Session For those of you that might not know, I’m not a huge winter person. I’m not a fan of the snow, the cold, the driving conditions, etc. And yet, what can really make me fall in love with this time of year in the Midwest is an amazing couple, an […]

Fall Engagement | Kalamazoo Nature Center It’s always special when I get to photograph another Stephanie, especially one as great as this Stephanie! I was excited when she reached out after finding me on The Knot. She told me that she and Craig were excited to get their engagement photos taken for their Save the […]

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 […]
