BRITTANY & HUNTER // SUMMER ENGAGEMENT SESSION IN DOW GARDENS // MIDLAND, MICHIGAN

 

I had never been to Dow Gardens before this session - and wow what a gem! Brittany and Hunter asked me to come to the gardens because it was where Hunter proposed and in the town where they will begin their married life together. On top of the beautiful grounds and gorgeous light, these two are the sweetest. This entire session literally felt like a “walk in the park” ;) Carefree, enjoying the warmer weather, the greenery, taking a break from work and study groups and a recent move to enjoy just being together. Cheers to Brittany & Hunter, I can’t wait for the wedding!

 

MARIA SCHOETTLER // PRODUCT PHOTOGRAPHY

I have worked with Oakland based illustrator, Maria Schoettler, to photograph her awesome products before.  Her watercolors feature California native plants and seasonal food, and the paintings translate so well to a variety of products she sells.  Maria makes beautiful calendars, recipe and note cards, and most recently this tea towel!  It will be up in her shop soon!
