My dear friend Courtney has met a wonderful man, Mark. My heart is so full seeing how happy they are together. I made a quick trip down to Ann Arbor last week so that I could capture some Fall engagement photos for them. After the shoot was finished I got a text from Courtney that said, “I’m a little overwhelmed with my beautiful life/family/friends right now. So spectacular!”. This means everything to me. If my images can play a small part in helping people feel gratitude for their life, to feel thankful and present in the moment, then I’m doing something right. I also hope that as sweet Thea grows, these photos will be a little reminder of just how loved she is. Courta - I’m honored to photograph your beautiful life. I CAN’T WAIT for the wedding.
I have known Cassie since my elementary school days and this session felt like a nostalgic Ann Arbor tour for me. What a PERFECT fall day. We hit so many iconic spots during our stroll through Kerrytown, along the Huron River, in the Diag and finishing up at Ashley's - where Cassie and Craig happened to have their first date. They are planning their wedding in Chicago next summer (I can't wait!!) so they wanted to make sure to snag some photos in the town where they met. Feelin' the love for these two and A2 in this session. Congrats Cassie and Craig!
Spring is in the air, or at least it is in Ann Arbor! Lauren and Joe fell in love while at U of M's law school, so it is only fair that we spent some time in the law quad for their session. While we were there, we witnessed one of the craziest things that I have ever seen happen during an engagement session. A peregrine falcon swooped down out of a tree and dove into a bush after a squirrel. After several attempts, and a couple passes through the law quad, it flew off with empty talons. We stood there shocked for an excessive amount of time before taking photos again (in some super gorgeous golden light). Life is full of amazing surprises. I'm thankful I get to witness some of them with awesome clients. Happy Sunday folks!
On a beyond hot day last weekend, Emily, Matt, and I ventured into The Arb in Ann Arbor for their engagement session. The hot and humid weather couldn't stop love and giggles. These two are just awesome - here's their preview!
Margaret and Kevin - I mean how cute are these two?! I had such a great time meeting up with them in Ann Arbor last weekend for this shoot. We found some fun spots around campus for photos, proving yet again that winter sessions are awesome! Thanks you two.
Oh, these two. We hit it off right away. Lauren and Brandon are sincerely, purely, without a doubt, happy. The kind of happy where a quick glance at each other turns into belly aching laughter. I love it, and I can't wait for their May wedding next year.
It's hard to beat a beautiful couple and fall weather. Shana & Caleb met up with me in The Arb on Friday for their engagement session. I had a great time getting to know them better and I cannot wait for their wedding next June!
Spring has been a bit late in arriving, but worth the wait. We had fantastic weather and gorgeous light for Lauren and Doug's engagement session in Ann Arbor. Such cuties, check it out.
I met Anna years ago when we played soccer and went to school together... ahh... back in the day... so I was super excited when we were able to reconnect and shoot her engagement session! Oh - and it was pretty great to meet her future husband too :)
Anna and Brandon met at U of M, so we had to take a couple shots at the Big House. It was brutally cold by the way, these two are champs.
Back in December, I had the pleasure of working with Kirsten and Dan. We headed out into a chilly day in Ann Arbor for their engagement session. We started out right downtown in Nickel's Arcade. We wandered through a back alley - into the Diag - and finished with a cozy outfit change in the Arb. Can't wait for their big day in September!
I had the pleasure of photographing Stephanie and Ryan together as a newly engaged couple back in October - 2012. They were amazing to work with and we had a blast roaming around the outskirts of Ann Arbor and Dexter, MI. We had perfect weather to enjoy a fall day outside, hanging out in pumpkin patches and drinking cider. I am truly looking forward to their upcoming wedding in Ann Arbor!
