Every time I visit Chicago I literally have the greatest time. That city never lets me down. And this visit I got to photograph my first out of state wedding, which was AMAZING! I’ll be editing those photos and making a blog post with all their beauty soon - but for now I owe a HUGE thanks to Erin & Kristen for hosting Chris and myself at their place for 4 days. It was so nice to visit with friends and having a great place to stay at. Here are some photos from our visit - enjoy!
Here are some photos I never got around to posting from the butterfly exhibit at the Michigan Science Center. Chris and I went a few months ago. I had hoped it would have been bigger but it was still cool to feed a bunch of butterflies :)
Today was my first engagement shoot of 2014, which felt pretty darn good. I’ve been photographing Josh and Jessica and their family for a few years now (not to mention I’ve known Jessica since I was about 14!) and these kind of sessions are seriously the best. I love being able to document milestones in my high school friend’s lives.
We went to Belle Isle and it was sunny and windy and cold, but I’ll take the sun and coldness over snow any day! I also got to offcially use my new 17-55 f/2.8 lens and I’m can say I’m really digging it.
Keep your eye out for pictures of Taylor and Parker (Josh and Jessica’s kids) this summer & wedding photos in 2015! xo
I had the chance to photograph the intimate marriage of Scott & Donna on Friday. It was a small, beautiful wedding. With just their kid’s and Scott’s family to witness, they got married in the backyard under the tree where they met (Scott has his own tree service!) and as if that couldn’t be romantic enough - IT WAS VALENTINE’S DAY! I want to shoot more intimate weddings like this. It’s so personal and really was beautiful.
In honor of 2013 ending I thought it would be nice to throw together some of my favorite images of this past year. I am so lucky to be able to photograph some of my long time friends as they get engaged, married, have kids and go through all of the milestones of life. I am also so thankful that I get to meet new clients and make new friendships because of photography. Here is to a wonderful past year and cheers to 2014. xo
My first blog post! Making an attempt to blog each photography session, I hope I can stay on top of it. A few weeks ago I shot Scott & Courtney’s wedding at Planterra Conservatory in Farmington Hills, MI. It’s was beyond gorgeous! Everything about this wedding was a perfect match to Scott and Courtney’s personalities. From hand drawn everything (they are both graphic designers!), vintage centerpieces and beautiful flowers EVERYWHERE. It was a dream to photograph.
