What’s your number one wedding day must-have? A wedding timeline. Maybe I’m a bit neurotic when it comes to planning and organizing (I blame it on my former career as a project manager), but with the amount of people involved in your big day, having a timeline will make everything so much calmer. Think of […]

5 Wedding Timeline Tips

They love to play cards. Their bedtime is 9 p.m. They love music about love, exploring little towns, and hanging out in coffee shops. These are my kinda people. Chad and Eileen were such a pleasure to work with. Not only do we have a lot in common (as mentioned above), but I love a […]

Whimsical Picnic, Stoney Creek Metro Park – Engagement Session

6 hours of coverage? 12 hours of coverage? Full day? Half day? What does it all mean! As you’ve probably noticed throughout your wedding planning process, photography package prices are often determined by hours of coverage. Many photographers do this to quantify their services. Less hours = less photos = less editing time later. Personally, […]

You know how tax-people are always so slammed from like January – April? And then once Tax Day is over, they all breathe a collective sigh of relief because now they can stop working crazy hours until next year’s tax season?

You already have a million things on your wedding to-do list, most photographers charge extra for an engagement shoot (luckily, I don’t!), and your groom might be dragging his feet over getting his pictures taken. So, no wonder you’re questioning […]

Do You Really Need an Engagement Session?

You know what they say…there’s a first time for everything. Well, this was the first time I’ve ever literally gotten ants in my pants on a photoshoot. And if I had the chance to do it all again I would say, “heck yes!!”   “I knew I liked them the second they told me their […]

Adventure is Out There, Stoney Creek Metropark – Engagement Session

9/25/19

A mother-daughter dance where everyone joined in. A tear-jerking, surprise slideshow during the mother-son dance. Several blessing filled speeches. This wedding was so full of love, family, and happiness. I first met Nicole a few months prior to her wedding at a coffee shop. Unfortunately, Mike couldn’t make it to the consultation, and they were […]

Classic Michigan Romance, Cherry Creek – Wedding

I have been friends with Dominica for the majority of my life. We took our SATs together. We went to prom together. We were bridesmaids in each other’s weddings….and she was one of my very first paying clients back in 2011 when she booked me to do her high school senior photos.  So, excuse me […]

It’s fall y’all! I don’t know why I just said “y’all” because I’m from Michigan. Please ignore, okay thanks. September is here and I am so excited. I cannot wait to watch Kona jump around in piles of leaves, go to my favorite apple orchard, and pull out all of my favorite fall clothes. However, […]
