Chelsea & Kevin: A Traverse City Sunrise Engagement Session | Old Mission Peninsula

Engagements

There are only 2 reasons you’ll ever find me up before the sun…#1 is for travel (worth it if you’re heading someplace amazing!) and #2 is for my gorgeous clients ❤️ This was actually my first sunrise session ever (I am not a morning person lol) but when Chelsea asked me if I’d consider doing […]

Maressa & Jason were married at The Henry Hotel in Dearborn, Michigan in one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve had the privilege of documenting.

Lauren & Luke: A Boyne Mountain Wedding Video | Harborage Marina – Boyne City, Michigan

Wedding Videography

One of my favorite things on wedding days is seeing my couples surrounded and loved on by the people who mean most to them in the word and there was an overabundance of love surrounding Lauren and Luke on their wedding day.

Savanah & Brice: A Red Shed Wedding Film | Hudsonville, Michigan

Wedding Videography

Savanah & Brice were married at The Red Shed in Hudsonville. The forecast showed rain all day for pretty much the whole week leading up to their wedding day, but somehow we got really lucky and the weather ended up being perfect with just a few sprinkles here and there. Plus we got some gorgeous bonus fog […]

Carolyn and Kyle’s Hidden Vineyard Wedding Barn summer wedding was this past weekend, and may just be one of my favorite weddings this year so far.

Jolie & Griffin: Grand Traverse Bay Engagement Session

Engagements

I’ve been so excited about Jolie and Griffin’s wedding next August since we first chatted back in February about me being their photographer. They’re getting married at Jolie’s family’s home here in Traverse City, and if you didn’t know this I love, love, love backyard weddings! Maybe it’s just the sentimental side of me, but […]

Kaylee and Koady: A Michigan June Wedding | Lansing, MI

Wedding Videography

I’ve been so excited to film Kaylee and Koady’s Michigan June wedding since Kaylee booked me way back towards the beginning of 2018. After we locked in their wedding date, Kaylee and I ended up becoming friends on Facebook (which I love! I feel like I get to know my brides and see all the […]

Tori & Austen: A Spring Castle Farms Wedding | Charlevoix, MI

Wedding Photography

I’ve been so excited for Tori and Austen’s Spring Castle Farms wedding since the first email that Tori sent me asking if I was available on their wedding date. One, because I’m always beyond excited to photograph or film a Castle Farms wedding since it’s where Zachary and I got married ourselves (This gorgeous Charlevoix […]

Gabby + Matt: St. Vincent Pallotti Parish | Southeast Michigan Wedding Film

Wedding Videography

Gabby and Matt kicked off my 2019 wedding season with their gorgeous May 4th, Southeast Michigan wedding at St. Vincent Palloti Parish in Wyandotte, Michigan. Weddings in May in Michigan are always a toss-up because you never quite know what Michigan will be doing in May. Honestly, it could be snowing or it could full-on […]
