Well! We officially have a three year old! Lachlan’s birthday party was this past weekend which worked out nicely since his official birthday landed on a Friday this year.

Dea + Chris

I still remember the first time I met Dea and Chris. It was in the lobby bar of a New York hotel with Sam by my side. Sam and I had hopped on a plane the evening prior for a 48 hour girls only trip. It just happened to work out that Dea and Chris, […]

Beth + Alex

As I say with every wedding we have the pleasure of being a part of, Beth and Alex’s was certainly no exception. Beth was one of the first vendors I reached out to when I officially started my business in 2010. I had stumbled across her photography just weeks after our own wedding and immediately […]

Sarah + Phil

It’s been nearly six months since Sarah and Phil’s wedding celebration but I remember it like it was yesterday. It was a quintessential Michigan fall day. An early crisp morning, beautifully warm afternoon, and chilly evening complete with the kind of sunset the west side of the state is best know for. Everyone who lives […]
