yesterday katie touzel and i headed to chicago. i never knew someone existed out there that liked to talk more than i did … and then i met katie. the three hours flew by so fast and although road trips are my favorite and i love listening to music … i don’t think we ‘actually’ listened to one song on the way down there. just too much to talk about. the business, inspirations, our goals, friends, family, and life. we wanted to sneak in a few hours of shopping, mainly with urban outfitters on our foreheads. we parked the car…Continue Reading >
leigh and trevor are such a fun couple and their engagement session might be one of my favorites to date. it could possibly be because i got to ride around in a hot rod all night … or just because these two are a riot. my fruz, randi introduced me to leigh a while back and i couldn’t be more thankful that she did. whats a fruz you say? well its a cousin aka cuz + friend = fruz. and randi is one of my best fruz’es and i’m so glad she introduces me to fun people that i get…Continue Reading >

its always so fun for me when i get to shoot a friends wedding. what is even cooler is the fact that i wasn’t really friends with them until they booked me, and then our friendship began. since i met andrea and todd both have become near and dear to my heart. they’ve invited me into their ‘group’ of friends with open arms and i couldn’t feel more blessed to have these new friends. it started with max and cassie [i went to college with cassie] and slowly we were invited to more ‘get togethers’ and matthew and i have…Continue Reading >

most of the time, it takes a few minutes to get to know a couple after first meeting them and for them to warm up to you. but meet mallory and ben who are not like most. within seconds ben walked up to me acting like we had known eachother for years, and i loved it. there are just people out there you feel comfortable being around and that is these two. mallory is super sweet and ben is something else 😉 mallory will never have to worry about a dull moment after marrying this guy. i’m pretty sure i…Continue Reading >
ashley and dave’s wedding was at the beautiful bay point inn on gun lake. its crazy how one weekend is sooo hot and the next is a bit chilly but that’s michigan for you. they were married on june 4 and the day couldn’t have been more beautiful, or hot. not a cloud in the sky, they started getting ready in seperate rooms and then met right in front where in a few hours they would be married. everyone was so excited for these two, but yet so calm and just happy the day was finally here. it is pretty…Continue Reading >
i can not get over this picture and stop laughing. for those wedding photographers out there you know exactly what i’m talking about … you see, i have had a few different jobs in my day. waitress, interior design, scrapbook store, salesperson, clothing stores, even ones with full out physical labor to name a few but shooting a wedding takes some endurance. you are so go go all day and mentally and physically exhausted at the end of the night. this is often times how we feel …
[note :: this is a dramatization]
haha. love it.
