I have always loved telling stories. When I was younger I was constantly busy with paper and pen, crafting tales that inspired and evoked emotion. For the longest time I just knew I was destined to be a novelist and write stories that would transport the reader to another world. When I discovered photography I learned how to tell stories in a whole new way; an incredibly beautiful way.
It is said that photographs are the only type of tangible memories, which means my perspective is how you will remember some of the most monumental moments in your life. With that in mind, I love to capture all the details (the big ones and the small ones) in the most gorgeous natural light. Light is my paintbrush and I swoon over bright, crisp photos that tell your story. Time goes by fast, so whether I am documenting your wedding day or capturing your babies as they grow it is my job to capture your moments, stunningly.
When I am not photographing weddings you can find me at home with my husband, Jonathan (who is also my second shooter) and two boys Caleb and Eli. I am a food and wine enthusiast and love traveling, cooking, eating and exploring new cities. It is a dream of mine to make it to Europe and eat and photograph my way from Paris to Tuscany.
Interested in a mentoring session? I teach throughout the United States at the workshop I co-founded, The Bloom Workshop, several times a year. For investment on one-on-one mentoring please send me an e-mail!
Currently based in Michigan, I specialize in destination weddings worldwide and will gladly travel to any location for a wedding celebration. I am now accepting a limited number of 2018 weddings in order to give my clients my full creative energy. Only two 2017 wedding dates remain! I am currently offering discounted wedding packages for these destinations: Hawaii, Europe, Ireland, Colorado & Southern California.
