The Empire Bluffs in Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park are a hidden treasure. If you are in Michigan, please do yourself a favor and hike at least one portion of this park! The first time I had the honor was in 2016 to capture this surprise proposal! To my friends who’ve been with me through […]

Lauren and Jake is an amazing couple! I could end this post there, but I won’t. They made my double header wedding weekend a breeze, and I remember leaving their day with such a spirit inside me. It all took place at the Estate at New Albany in the peak of summer! First and foremost, […]

Capturing Leanna and Patrick’s wedding in New Hampshire was not the original plan. As life proves though, beautiful moments come out of chaotic ones, and this was one of them. By the luck of every straw, I was able to keep Leanna and Patrick on my 2020 wedding list. They found the magic of a […]

This is something near and dear to my heart, because I’ve realized as I grow older, I use traveling for something more than just to explore new cities. I mentioned it a bit on Lizzie’s podcast – but I’ll reiterate it here for you as well. (If you are here just for the Aruba pics […]

It’s funny because I was on a consult call with an inquiring couple yesterday and the bride mentioned how one of my posts from THIS session that I’m about to share inspired her to watch the sunrise with her boyfriend! And then to make it even more magical, HE PROPOSED to her right there! WHAAAT? […]

I don’t normally blog engagement sessions, but this one stole my heart! We woke up at the crack of dawn to see the sunrise over Lake Michigan! Which if you have not done on a trip to Chicago – you MUST do. I mean, sunrises in general, are just incredibly invigorating. AND THEN you put […]

I think I need to start this post by saying after our super cold engagement session we stopped in a coffee shop that just happened to make butter beer coffee. YUP. BUTTER. BEER. COFFEE. Dead, dying, and reborn into an HP oblivion. Basically all these months later I’m still geeking out. But moving onto Katie […]

Some people find it unfathomable that one could spend a holiday away from traditions or normal routine. I actually am one of those people – to a point. The only holiday I’ve spent away from family is Thanksgiving (and I’ve done it twice). The first time I was studying abroad in Europe in 2011 and […]

Okay, first of all – no I didn’t just go to Scotland for Harry Potter landmarks (although that was my initial primary reason for the trip). OHH SHUSH (pics are below). Okay, okay, but yes I definitely plan all my excursions based upon books I love and movies I am obsessed with. There I said it. […]
