Summer is the best time to be in love, because you feel invigorated to go out, explore new places, and have late nights. As a native Detroiter, I wanted to share some of my favorite date ideas for new loves, established couples, locals, and visitors to my favorite city.     “Paris might be the […]


Morning, Afternoon, & Evening Date Ideas – Detroit, Michigan


Another month has come and gone. Just like that summer is already halfway over. This was my first month in the last three years where I didn’t work two full time jobs. Let me just tell you….it’s so nice. I can’t remember the last time I felt so caught up on sleep, cooked, or actually […]

Her laugh is so infectious, he is the perfect fiancé, and I had so much fun with them.   Originally Michiganders themselves, Mitch and Geena […]

What’s the best part about being a traveling photographer and having a huge, far-spread family? You always have a family member nearby your shoot location! Joshua Tree has been on my bucket list for YEARS. So I decided to plan a stylized engagement and elopement photo shoot in Joshua Tree, California. Thankfully my  sister Emily […]


Weekend in Joshua Tree, California – Travel Photographer


Where did April go? I for one, have no idea. The months and years just seem to be blowing right by me. But the good news about another month coming to a close means it’s time to reflect a bit! Here’s a list of a few of my very favorite things from April 2019. If […]
