It is without a doubt that all my wedding couples are deeply in love, but the passion between Jamie and Drew completely radiates from them. I am so honored to have been included in their big day, which took place on the enchanting grounds of Castle Farms in Charlevoix. Take a look at this absolutely breathtaking ceremony!

The  first thing that I noticed When sitting down with Abby to go over her wedding, was the importance of family and god In her and David’s life.

Arkansas Trip

A very huge part of my life, when I’m not behind the camera, is Family. This weekend I traveled 32 hours round trip with my Michigan family to visit my Arkansas family, and to welcome Sarah into our family as she took Chads hand in marriage. I learned on this trip
(a) where I get my bad driving from, its hereditary.
(b) never give children sprite for breakfast
(c) If you give a 8yo a blow dryer and tell him its an air gun you’ll never have to blow dry your hair by yourself again. 

It certainly was a wonderful vacation! But lets not pretend like I didn’t get at least one good picture from the wedding! Congrats Sarah & Chad! Image

Sneak Peek: Andrew

This past weekend while I was visiting back home I had the chance to capture my cousin Andrews senior pictures. We shot in the beautiful downtown area of Traverse City. Just an hour before our shoot, it started down pouring, and we almost cancelled, but when my Aunt said the sun was coming out, we took a chance that it would continue raining and that chance paid off!

Overpassed

This weekend I traveled up to Traverse City to shoot a wedding and ended up also shooting with hometown model Britney Simerson.

You can’t tell from the behind the scenes video, but we were literally fighting with tourist traffic to get this beautiful shot on the overpass connecting TC State Park to TC State Beach.

Happy 4th Everyone!

Happy 4th Everyone!

I’ve been sick in bed with strep throat, but I just had to push myself out of bed today to get in one red white & blue photoshoot in for the Fourth of July. Very big thank you to Mary Plunkett for braving through my sickness with me!

I’m going to be a little MIA these next few days, I’ve got to heal up before my wedding I’m shooting this weekend! But I hope everyone has a happy and safe Fourth of July! 🇺🇸💙

Sneak Peek: Wedding of Amanda & Mitchell

This weekend I found myself traveling to Kalkaska, Michigan capturing the beautiful ceremony and reception of Amanda & Mitchell. With stunning ambient light sweeping throughout the church windows, their ceremony was truly angelic. One of my favorite images from their wedding, is this intimate moment of the bride and groom sitting in the field next to their reception. With the wind softly blowing, I quickly caught a few snaps of the couple out of focus, but truly love the way the image turned out. So many blessing to the newlyweds!

I initially first met this adorable couple from the Traverse City Rock Climbing gym, and I was so excited when they chose me to capture their big day. I’d like to send a very big congratulations to the newlyweds, and share a weak peak of images from their special day!

Family Project: Building a Studio Light

While visiting Traverse City, my family all pitched in helping me build a homemade light. My mother was the architect, my brother the mathematician making sure everything was measured correct, and my father the wiring genius. It’s been awhile since we have all come together as a whole to work on one project, so it was a fun bonding experience, and the light we produced, amazing!

It doesn’t look very professional, but the images that it produces, are amazing, I am so exited to begin incorporating this into more of my daily shoots! Below is the light used in it’s first ever shoot with new model Courtney Russ last night and the outcome image!
