Sarah & Caleb's Ann Arbor Engagement Session

I got to photograph these cuties recently! Caleb and Sarah met while they were both on the cross country team at Kalamazoo College and although this super smart pair (Sarah's in med school and Caleb is an engineer) live in Colorado now, they're having a Michigan wedding in September at Waldenwoods. The pair opted for an engagement session in Caleb's native Ann Arbor while in town for the weekend and since they love being outdoors, Matthaei Botanical Gardens and a walk downtown fit the morning perfectly. Enjoy highlights from this super chill and fun engagement session. Looking forward to your wedding in 2 short months, you guys! xxoo

Aaron & Jayne's Waldenwoods Wedding

Yay! I'm so excited to share these photos! Jayne is THE sweetest lady and I knew we would work very well together shortly after meeting her. She and her sweetheart Aaron had a gorgeous fall engagement session at Spicer's Orchard and Cider Mill in Fenton and they were wed last weekend at the always scenic Waldenwoods on the Sunshine Lodge side! It rained pretty much all day, but Jayne didn't let that get her down for a second. In fact, I saw her Facebook post the morning of the wedding: "The rain won't stop me from being overjoyed that I get to marry my dream come true today". What a great attitude! Her radiant smile just lit up the whole day and I'm not just saying that! She was just a joy to be around and you could see how much Aaron loves her by how he got misty-eyed during their first look and when she came down the aisle. The cloudy sky broke into a gorgeous sunset right at the end and made for some gorgeous moments! I just loved capturing this beautiful vintage romance themed wedding. Enjoy some favorites and congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Randles! xxoo

Denise & Aaron's Plum Hollow Country Club Wedding

Aaron and Denise, who you may remember from their Detroit Public Library engagement session, were wed just over a week ago at Plum Hollow Country Club surrounded by their closest family and friends. They had a beautiful outdoor ceremony that was rich with both Jewish and Persian traditions. I had the honor of partnering with amazing photographer Esme McClear for this wedding so the whole experience was extra good. I hope you enjoy some favorites of this smart and sweet pair! Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Kirsch! xoxo The photo on the left represents good luck in the Persian culture! The bride's mom was so cute when she danced!

Becca & Rob's Waldo's Garden Engagement Session

I've been dying to share these photos! I had the amazing opportunity to fly down to Florida with my friend and incredible photographer, Esme McClear, for a surreal adventure: photographing Becca and Rob for both some pre-wedding sessions and their gorgeous wedding!! The experience of working with them and just being in that beautiful place was like a dream. The brainy and athletic pair, who met while doing their residencies in Becca's native Detroit, were so incredibly in love, warm and down to earth and they didn't hesitate for one second to make us feel right at home with them, their friends and their family. We did their engagement session in two parts, the first at the dreamy spot Becca had picked out, Waldo's Secret Garden in Vero Beach (Becca had her dewy makeup done by Crystal Wiesehan), and the second back at their beach in Indialantic the next day at sunset. While photographing, I just kept thinking, "Pinch me!". I hope you love my favorites from the pre-wedding session and I look forward to sharing wedding photos soon! I can't say enough good things about Becca and Rob and this experience! xoxo
