Justin and Pauls Winter Wonderful Engagement. Ann Arbor, MI

I was so ready for the energy and love and adventure that Justin and Paul brought to their engagement session. The temperature was a balmy 38 degrees and only two days after the polar vortex broke we ventured out to the beautiful Barton Damn and explored the frozen wonderland it had become. We finished up the afternoon with a little skate on an overflow pond near their home (Jusin zambonied that morning) which was pure magical fun.

After almost two weeks stuck in the house (my camera’s freeze at -30) it was brilliant to get out and take photos with these two. I am beyond excited to share and can not WAIT until their wedding this fall. Thank you both for being your own perfect selves (and for the ice skating!)

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.
