I see you, bride-to-be.
Not long ago I was in your shoes. Unable to stop staring at my left hand and a *tad* overwhelmed by all the noise, all the options in this beautiful new world of weddings.
I’m so glad you’ve found your way to this quieter place, because it means we already click. And working with kindred spirits like you is one of many things I love most about what I do.
Photography has been my second language for over a decade. Somewhere between sipping coffee in Paris cafés and wading into the clear waters of the Red Sea, it dawned on me: the littlest moments aren’t so little at all. A smile from an old soul, wind through your hair, the butterflies when you slip into that dress…
no moment is ordinary.
I live just west of Detroit in a cozy apartment overlooking water and weeping willows with my sweet husband Matt, which is where you can probably find me curled up on the couch with a mug of hot chocolate, caring for one of our many plant babies, or heading out to catch up with a past bride over lavender lattes.
Through studying photojournalism in Europe (and various things like art history and watercolors when I was supposed to be studying advertising), I developed a serious knack for observing and artfully keeping moments alive. Rather than perfection (which doesn’t exist anyway), I believe in photos with feeling, with soul.
I believe in sitting down with you to put together your custom timeline, swooning over your dress and floral inspiration on your phone, and laughing with you over coffee long after this precious day in your life has come and gone.
