a girl in love photography


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

This is what an engagement looks like. Stephen and Maddy in love and loving Detroit

I LOVE engagement sessions.  The spiel is that it allows me, your photographer, to get to know you, the people I am photographing.  In a low stress, relaxed and chill hang out somewhere you love while we take some pictures.  It does help with the actual wedding day, you get to see what I do, how I work and I get to see what you are comfy with and hear your feedback on the images.  But that isn’t the main reason I still include my engagement sessions with every wedding package for free.

I do it because I forking love doing it.

I like getting to know and befriend my clients, I like seeing who they are and how they are most comfortable.  I like hearing the feedback on which images they like the best! I lOVE showing them how beautiful they are and I like taking photos like this.

Maddy and Stephen love Detroit and each other, and we celebrated both a couple weeks ago on a beautiful, mostly sunny and almost warm, day in the D  thank you both for being who you are and letting me capture some of it!! (and showing me your fav places)

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.
