Every Chicago engagement session we shoot reminds us how much we love this city. Chicago really does have it all. Food, culture, beautiful architecture, history, and it’s right on the water. There is so much to do and so many beautiful sights to see, we would need months to do it all. We could spend […]

Despite all it’s faults, the sunny July 2020 weather couldn’t be more perfect for a Michigan backyard wedding.  And with so many weddings rescheduling to backyard ceremony and receptions, we are beyond grateful for it.  It truly is a blessing to our couples and their families which for us, is what this is all about.

Maybe it’s because we are Michigan wedding photographers, but few things inspire us more than the beaches of Lake Michigan. The soft glow of the light, the romantic caress of the warm sand between our toes, and rhythm crashing of the cerulean waves, all of it fills our hearts and inspire our creative side to […]

The temperature just started to drop to a warm and comfortable level. After a full July day of heat in the upper 90’s and humidity to rival Florida, the gentle summer breeze and low 70-degree weather was a welcome retreat. It was a beautiful night. The starlight showed brightly as the silvery moon climbed over […]

This Silver Lake Sand Dunes wedding photoshoot will always have a special place in our hearts. And we have been going to Silver Lake Sand Dunes fairly often this year.

The time after the proposal when you are still suspended in the clouds from the happiness of knowing you finally get to marry the man of your dreams.

West Michigan Engagement Session Locations

Belle Isle Detroit engagement sessions are some of our favorites. It’s truly a magical place. On Belle Isle, summer comes in her own time. She drifts in on a spring wind over the Detroit River, wakening with a soft warmth that washes over everything and takes root with weeds and grasses in the cracks of […]

You might think that a desert-inspired engagement session would involve a cruel sun beating down with its harsh rays, searing sands, and the air heavy with heat. But not for Teagan and Jake’s Silver Lake Sand Dunes engagement session. The sky was weas rich and full of warm spring rain while wisps of clouds danced […]
