I grew up in the northern Detroit suburb of Rochester, moved to Traverse City during high school and lived there 8 years before moving back. Now I live in Goodrich- a small town in SE MI. I’m married to my very best friend, Scott, and I have two amazing kids. I’ve always been an animal person, and currently have two dogs, a cat, and a horse. I love good food, good beer, and good music.
Growing up, I was always surrounded by photographs. My mom and my grandma are both obsessed with photography, like me. There are countless photo albums of my family’s trips, birthdays, get togethers, and weddings. These photos mean so much to me- they're windows in time that I can look at whenever I want.
I don't conider myself "normal", and I never liked adhering to the rules, or doing the expected. When I realized that wedding photography didn’t have to be traditional or posed; that I could shoot weddings how I wanted to, organically and authentically; that I could document a story, not direct one, I was hooked. I started to seek out like-minded couples who wanted me to tell their unique story and who were equally as offbeat as I am. I truly believe that no one one else has a story like yours and it’s my job as your photographer to tell that story in the most genuine and authentic way possible.
So if you’re the type of person who likes the atypical...who wants me to tell your story as it develops, your trip down the aisle and all, then I want to know about it. With a passion for creativity and a love for the art of storytelling, I promise to display your personality and your love in images you will share for a lifetime.
A few of my favorite things : )
