a girl in love photography


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

Catie and Ryan’s story takes place at the Henry in Dearborn Michigan and is filled with dancing.


A big thrill of photographing a wedding is in the story, the little bits here and there between the “I Do” and the speeches where I get to show a group of people how wonderful they really are.  Catie and Ryan’s day was full of smiles, and hugs.  Everyone taking a moment to tell each other how much they meant to them.   Tears and dancing were linked hand and hand, the whole day was full of effusive expressions of love! Their reception was in Lovett Hall at the Henry Ford and it was finally my pleasure to get to shoot there.  We did some posing in front of the marble and brick of Ginger Hall then explored a bit before dinner and a surprise dance after speeches by family in the Lovett Hall ballroom.    Here is Catie and Ryans story.

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.
