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.
Hello 2015! After taking a holiday break from the web and most of my social media outlets, I am excited to share some fun stuff with you! Remember Lauren & Brandon? Well, I shot a few frames of them on film (Pentax K1000, Ilford XP2 Super), and sometimes film does the darndest things.
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!
This session was all smiles. We found some great spots around Kerrytown and Argo Park in Ann Arbor. It has been a while since my last visit to Argo, so it was cool to see how things have changed and learn about some great new river access spots! Even though I'm bummed we won't be photographing Erin and Dave's North Carolina wedding next year, I'm very happy that we were able to meet up for some engagement shots in a special town.
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.
