Sarah & Kyle's Ann Arbor Engagement Session

Okay, I definitely lucked out last week with friend engagement sessions. Sarah is such a babe and seriously the complete package and I always knew whoever landed her would be a lucky man! Well, Kyle is that lucky man and he's also pretty cool himself! Kyle and Sarah have such an easy natural chemistry and are just adorable together. I love seeing the kind of love they have because it just makes my heart warm! These two are big fans of Ann Arbor and the University of Michigan, so we HAD to go there for their photos! First stop was Nichols Arboretum then we went to Yost Ice Arena. I seriously loved "working" with these two! I know their Inn at Saint John's wedding day next October will be amazing and full of so much fun and laughter! Enjoy some early favorites of mine! Congratulations, you two! It's clear you were made for each other. xoxo

Elisa & Ethan's Highland Engagement Session

What a joy it is to not only photograph, but to photograph friends! Such is the case with this adorable couple! I have known crazily talented artist Elisa for many years through our church background and was thrilled when I found out she was dating Ethan. They are such a great match! I had the pleasure of photographing the Milford engagement session of her big sister, Hannah, and her now husband, Nick, last year! A couple of weeks ago, Ethan got down on one knee and proposed to lovely Elisa at one of their favorite walking spots, Haven Hill. It was only fitting for their morning engagement session that we revisited this spot (the highest point in Highland!) as well as a few other pretty locations. I am so excited to photograph Ethan & Elisa's wedding at my church in June! Congratulations, you two! Enjoy some of my instant favorites. xoxo

Tré's 1st Birthday Family Session

I'm so excited to share the fourth and final installment of baby Tré's First Year Collection. You may remember seeing parts 1, 2 and 3 in the last year. The photos in this post were done shortly after Tré's first birthday! He has gotten so big! It has meant so much to me to be able to capture not only LaShonda and James' Cranbrook engagement session and DYC wedding but also to photograph these 4 family portraits. I was so happy at the end of this final session (when I was feeling sad!) to hear that LaShonda plans to keep me a part of their lives in the future still! Love this lil family. Please enjoy these photos of the big birthday boy! XXOO

Jeff & Jenny's Ann Arbor Engagement Session

I'm so excited to share sneak peeks from Jeff and Jenny's Ann Arbor engagement session! These two met on eHarmony and hit it off immediately after their first date at Isalita in Ann Arbor. Six months later, Jeff asked Jenny to marry him on a beach in Traverse City. When I met these two, I felt like we were already friends and I knew we would be a great fit. I feel so even more after their session! We started their photos in downtown Ann Arbor at some colorful spots then ended at the University of Michigan Law Quad. We had a great time! Congratulations, Jeff and Jenny! I'm so looking forward to your Waldenwoods wedding in May!

Chris & Marley's Frutig Farms Engagement Session

These darlings met at Central Michigan University where they bonded (and later fell in love) while studying for a class together. I first met them in 2012 at Suzi and Justin's Oakhurst Golf & Country Club wedding and then got to see Marley later in 2013 when she did makeup at Jasmin and James' Addison Oaks wedding. I remembered how much fun these two were (they can DANCE!!), so I was extra excited when Marley checked dates with me before booking her venue! Marley and Chris had me laughing throughout the whole relaxed and fun session. We visited the venue where they will be getting married next May, Frutig Farms The Valley. It was so gorgeous! What a fun spot to take photos. Please enjoy my favorites from Chris and Marley's engagement session! Congratulations on your engagement, you two, and I'm excited for 5/7/16! xoxoxo
