Goodness I’ve been so very excited to finally share these photos from our Southern Weddings V8 editorial!

The idea behind the […]

This past summer, the HGE team had the tremendous pleasure of executing one very special event for one truly special couple. Danielle and Nick came to me last spring of 2014 needing help with planning their destination Northern Michigan event. As soon as I took time to get to know the couple I was smitten. […]

An Intimate Hey Gorgeous Events Elopement

A few months ago I had the pleasure of seeing a very special endeavor from last summer published within the premiere issue of Cottage Hill Magazine.

Butter & Citrus

Butter & Citrus

This past summer I had the pleasure of serendipitously connecting with the gracious and crazy talented Sara Hasstedt in Denver, Colorado. We decided to seize the day (or the week, if you will) and make a little magic happen together. Logistically things were sort of crazy that week because shipping florals halfway across the country can […]

Earlier this summer I had the pleasure of partnering with some pretty spectacular vendors to bring this Rustic Elegance editorial vision to life. The backdrop was no other than the incredible Hidden Vineyard Wedding Barn in Berrien Springs, Michigan where believe me, the service is just about as remarkable as the property and venue (we […]

Jamie + Ryan

Goodness gracious. I’m not sure where to start with this one, my friends. Jamie and Ryan had one of the loveliest (and most labor intensive) weddings last Labor Day weekend on the shores of Lake Michigan. Set against the bride’s parent’s beachfront property, complete with miles of white sand, blue water and soft green dune […]

There’s not much I can say to really give this wedding the justice it deserves. I get goosebumps just looking over these gorgeous photos from Mango Studios, reliving this day, all these moments, over and over again. Alex and Josh exemplify true love, that selfless, knock you off your feet, I-want-that kinda love. I shared […]

Sometimes things come together and you think, that’s it right there. That’s my HEART. This is one of those times. This Halloween themed masquerade inspiration shoot was one of the largest I’ve ever headed and easily is the one I am most proud of. Back in January I thought it would be a creative challenge […]
