a girl in love photography


Photographing everywhere there is love and light | Detroit | Ann Arbor | Chicago & Worldwide


I met Bridget O’Brian just a few months ago in the very middle of my busiest season ever and we talked about wanting to work together not only as vendors in weddings but as collaborators on some kind of project, her creations are so beautiful and the first time we met we talked for hours about the creative process, how our minds worked and what being an artist was all about. After a few more great conversations we decided to celebrate what we do and the seasons and so with the kind help of Makeup Artist Taryn Scalise and Hairdresser Katherine Reatzel as well as our beautiful bride to be Brooke we start with Winter.

We’ll be sharing more and you’ll be seeing it all very soon but I couldn’t help but throw up a sneak peak until then.

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
