Ashley & Sam

It’s hard to know where to start when you have so much perfection to work with. For starters, I’ve known Sam since he was a baby and it’s the craziest thing to see him all grown up, into a six-foot-something man, getting married. Then, there’s his bride, Ashley, and she is amazing. Not only is she a gorgeous model, she also rides horses, was barefoot the entire day, and is one of the coolest, most laid-back brides we’ve ever worked with. Then there was the impeccable weather and venue, the Orchard Lake Country Club, the gorgeous flowers and the really fun band. Needless to say, it was a perfect storm of awesome. Ashley and Sam: You two are wonderful. It was such a joy to document your most incredible wedding day, thank you for inviting us to partake! May God richly bless you both in the years to come. We absolutely love your photos and can’t wait to share them with you! So many good ones, so many favorites. Enjoy a few highlights below and click the link at the end for more!

Introducing Adaline

It was such a joy to photograph Bonnie and Mark in their journey towards parenthood. When Bonnie was close to full-term, we started out with a maternity session and the love and laughter between her and Mark is infectious. Not too long after, they welcomed beautiful little Adaline into the world. Some of my favorite parts about photographing newborns with first-time parents is capturing that intense, overwhelming, head-over-heels love. Anyone who’s ever had a child knows what I’m talking about. It’s that love that, when you look at your baby, the wind is almost knocked out of you and you never knew you were capable of loving someone just. so. much. Bonnie and Mark: Thank you for inviting me to document your baby’s first year. You two are wonderful people and parents. Adaline is a dream baby and I cannot wait to see how she grows this coming year. Enjoy a few highlights from your first two sessions below and click the link at the end for more!

Jenn & Mike

These two are awesome. Purely awesome. I had such a great time shooting with them on a vibrant, mid-spring’s evening. Jenn, a high school math teacher, and Mike, a commercial real estate broker, are adventurous, fun-loving and caring people. They are deeply compassionate and run marathons for the Hope Water Project through Kensington Community Church. I like them a lot :) It was really relaxed working with them and I felt like I was among dear friends. Mike and Jenn: You guys are so great!! Working with you was a blast and I LOVE the way your photos came out. Gabe and I are really looking forward to your wedding next month.
