Baby Brady's Preview!

Michelle and Ryan had me over today to photograph their amazing little guy! I wanted to get a quick little preview up here before I leave for California tomorrow morning. I'll be gone for a week- shooting what promise to be two fantastic engagement sessions!

Michelle and Ryan, enjoy your preview, and I'll put some more up for you when I return! :)

Could he be anymore perfect?!

Have a good week everyone! I'll be thinking of you all when I'm basking in the SoCal sunshine ;)


Tracy and Jordan are Engaged!

Tracy and Jordan are getting married in June- on the beach in Glen Arbor, MI! Tracy is Andy's cousin, and I always tell him how lucky he is to have such amazing cousins like Tracy in his life. Seriously, she's fantastic. And Jordan's not so bad himself ;)

I really love these, but - Spring where are you? :)

So sweet.

I love everything about this one. The willow branches in the foreground, the goose in the background, and Tracy and Jordan all snuggly in between :)

The one on the left is possibly my favorite. I saw this building when we were driving by and knew exactly what shots I wanted there.

Yay! We found a little Spring!

Tracy and Jordan- thanks for coming all the way out here for these! I hope you like them as much as I do :)


Rene and Mike are Married!

Rene and Mike were married this past Saturday. The ceremony was at St. Andrew Church in Rochester, with the reception held at Cherry Creek Golf Club in Shelby Township. It was an absolutely gorgeous day- I don't think anything could have been more perfect for these two! From the fabulous, sunny weather, to the absolutely breath-taking details of their wedding, it was such a stunning and fun-filled event :)

First up, Rene's bouquet. So pretty. Attached is a charm with her grandparent's wedding photo- I just loved that idea!

Stunning. Rene looked AMAZING! And check out that bling :)

A cute moment with the flower girl, Gabriella.

This one gets me a little choked up.

Cherry Creek had some great little spots for photos!

I LOOOVE these.

The reception details were amazing. I was blown away when I entered the room.

Have I mentioned how much I love first dances?! :)

Rene and her friends had choreographed a dance to Jagged Edge and Run DMC's "Let's Get Married." It was seriously amazing, and had everyone on their feet.

Rene, you are hot. Like woah.

And a ring shot to end. Thanks, Kristyn, from Castle Video Productions for your help setting this up :)


Laurel and Bob are Engaged!

I spent last weekend in Chicago with my mom and sister. While I was there, I scheduled some time with Laurel and Bob for their engagement session! I had lots of fun meeting these guys, and gallivanting around the city! They're getting married in Chicago this November, and I can't wait to go back and see them.

We started the afternoon with a couple of minutes in a beautiful greenhouse in Lincoln Park- before we got kicked out because it was closing :)

Sometimes other people make beautiful backdrops!

I love the city vantage point from the Observatory!

What a view!

A fun Chicago landmark :)

We ducked into a garden next to the Art Museum for these next few.

I really like this one. Casual and cool.

Thanks for the fun session, guys! Can't wait to see you in November!

Anna and Loren are Engaged!...

And getting married next month! :) I'm thrilled to have gotten to know these two a little better- what a sweet couple! I'm very excited for their intimate event coming up in a few weeks. Here are a few of my favorites from their session...

We started out in the Law Quad. Love these! :)

Anna loves these trees- Magnolias right?

These may be my favorites! So sweet. And Anna is so beautiful in the second one!

And... a little selective focus to end with :)


Tivoli and Mike's wedding!

I had forgotten how much fun it is to second shoot! :) Robin, from Once Upon A Memory Photography, and my own frequent second shooter, had me along yesterday to help out with Mike and Tivoli's wedding at the Inn at St. Johns!

Robin is fabulous to work with, and as the second photographer, I was able to relax more, and focus on being creative. I could totally get used to that! Here are a couple of my favorites from their big day!

I just loooove both of these!

The chapel at St. Johns is stunning!

A cute moment during the ceremony :)

Their first dance was so sweet!

And to end, a rock shot.

Thanks for having me along, Robin! You're the best :)
