I'm passionate, spontaneous, and creative. I am relentless in the pursuit of happiness. I love adventure, the wilderness, and being a part of something bigger. I believe in true love, magic, miracles, and unseen forces of energy. I thrive on wonder, creativity and love.
Dear couple who is thinking of hiring me to photograph you:
Life is amazing. People are amazing. This planet is amazing! Every couple has a unique story, and a unique relationship. But we all share a connection- every one of us is connected by a common energy, and that energy is also connected to the Earth. I want to be able to tap into that connection with you, and in doing so, create amazing, beautiful images that capture that energy and those memories for all time. If you're down for an amazing experience, I can't wait to hear from you!
I’ve never been a fan of having my own picture taken, and it’s usually the photos that I didn’t know were being taken that are my favorite. So when I work with you, I’ll provide gentle, easy directions to help you create beautiful and natural poses that aren’t actually “poses”. I’ll help you focus on each other instead of things like “What should I do?” “Do I look ok?” “What should I do with my hands?”. You don’t need to worry about a thing!
I was born in Metro Detroit and grew up with Star Wars, Legos and the forest as my backyard. I lived in Traverse City for a while, where I enjoyed hiking and swimming in the Great Lakes. I married my best friend Scott in 2013. We didn’t want a big wedding and all the stress, so we eloped in Sedona, Arizona. Then we had an intimate backyard reception for family and close friends- BBQ style. It was awesome. I have two kids, two dogs, two cats, and a horse. I’d love to get to know more about you and your story!
