The Modern Adventurer:
A person who desires to break tradition in order to experience something exciting

For the bride who isn't worried about getting her dress a little dirty. For the groom who isn't afraid to erase the status quo and wear his own style of 'suit'. For the couple that wants their wedding to be an expression of their relationship, joy, and personal style. For the families and friends ready to celebrate, I mean throw your hands in the air and let out a "whoop!" type of celebrate! For the wedding that is willing to rejoice, come rain or shine, hot or cold.

It’s my goal to capture all of the life that happens on your wedding day. The raw, the beautiful, and the perfectly messy.

This is photography for the modern couple: the adventurers, the romantics, & those not afraid to be real.

WHY PHOTOGRAPHY?

When I was a young girl, I would sit at the top of the stairs with photo books in my lap looking through images my father took in college. Sunsets, spaces, people he knew. I loved any image I could get my hands on from my parents early days before me and my sisters were even an idea. When I found my parents’ wedding photos, I stared endlessly at my mothers wedding dress, my fathers long blonde hair, the emotional moments the photographer captured from behind a door when they weren’t looking.  In college I discovered my fathers old film camera that he took all his early photos on, I signed up for photography classes, and honestly…the rest just made sense.

In autumn of 2013 I threw caution to the wind and went full speed ahead with photography, focusing on what I was mesmerized by the most; weddings. It wasn’t that I just picked wedding photography for something to do; it was my dream. And each and every wedding I’m given the honor to photograph, it’s my dream to capture moments and details in a way that not only my clients adore, but their families for generations to come will devour. It’s my dream to document history, to preserve your most beautiful moments, to serve and honor you in one of the most phenomenal days of your life.

Your wedding day will be stunningI want to make sure it’s remembered the same way.

IN A NUTSHELL
I've been loving life, loving you, and lets be real - loving coffee - since '89. Living along one of the worlds biggest fresh water lakes in Michigan (aka: the fresh coast), I am outside taking advantage of the fresh air as much as possible. When I'm not enjoying the outdoors, you can find me in a fitness class, talking to my plants (self admitted plant lady over here), or devouring a good book - most likely with a coffee in hand during all of those. Throughout my life I've been most described as an optimist with a fierce justice heart; I'm the wild youngest (of 3 girls!) and have honestly been in love with life since day one - in love with people, the earth, and everything in between.

OBSESSIONS INCLUDE (but are not limited to):

The 90's, minimalism, plants, early mornings, & my husband.
