Engagement sessions are meant to tell a little portion of your story. Whenever couples have a location in mind that is meaningful to them I absolutely love it! We started David and Morgan’s engagement session at the lakeside property David’s parents will be building a home on this year. I love the idea that years from […]
When Nikki told me her and Adam wanted to do their engagement photos in a nature/outdoorsy setting I know the Edsel and Eleanore Ford House would be the perfect fit! Nikki’s baby blue dress and nude heels matched the May blooms perfectly. We won’t leave Adam out; see if you can find a photo of […]
When I was editing Elise and Ryan’s Detroit spring engagement shoot my preschool niece, Jaclyn, walked up to my computer. She looked at the screen and said, “Wowww Sammie, that girl is so pretty. I mean she’s really pretty, and I like her fancy dress. Oh… and boys are weird.” I couldn’t agree more Jaclyn […]
Holy smokes did we strike gold this spring with Tacora and Keith’s Detroit spring engagement session. I had been dying to shoot a couple with some magnolia trees in bloom, and was shocked to find the most beautiful magnolias in Detroit. We spent the evening admiring the beauty of the Detroit Institute of Arts and […]
Shooting in Holland during spring – aka the tulip festival – has been one of my dreams! When Taylor told me that her and Adam went to Hope College, and that they would love to do a Holland Michigan engagement session I about died!! Luckily we were able to do their shoot Monday morning and […]
Expecting mamas might be my new favorite subject matter. I mean can we just talk about how stunning Emily is? If you didn’t know what people mean when they say, “she’s glowing,” please see below. I got to spend the most beautiful evening chatting with Emily and Mike about their soon-to-be baby girl! We even […]
My most embarrassing moment as a photographer happened just before Courtney and Dan’s Stoney Creek engagement session. Prior to their shoot Courtney had texted me telling me they were running a little bit late. I told her it wasn’t a problem, and that I would be in the black SUV in the back of the […]
Making pretty things with other creatives is one of my favorite things to do – plus there’s usually wine and cheese involved. Natalia with Violet Rose Floral totally killed these two different floral arrangements. Who would think all white florals could seriously be so stunning, she’s a magician. Pairing these with Patricia from Oh Eleven […]
First off, can we just agree Elliot Elizabeth is one of the cutest little girl names on the planet?! Now that we’ve cleared that up, you guys are probably thinking, “wait a second… those beautiful parents look familiar.” That would be because I’ve had the absolute honor of photographing Emily and Brandon’s engagement, wedding, day […]
After chatting over drinks in downtown Royal Oak and learning that Lauren works in fashion, you better bet I was soooo pumped to see what she had planned for hers and Todd’s engagement photos. I’m not joking her navy dress was such a stunner I would be wearing that baby around the house doing twirls […]
