Hey there, Congratulations on your engagement. You're planning a pivitol moment in your relationship and the fact that you stumbled accross my page is truly an honor.
I've been photographing Michigan weddings for 10+ years and I'm excited to continue meeting couples just like you. A new option I've added to my business is destination weddings and to fulfill my dream of traveling for my work. I've been to places like Nashville, Chicago, and Mackinac Island.
Years ago I obtained a degree in early childhood education where I taught preschool for ten years while photographing life's most precious events through photography. You might be wondering, why is this important to know. Well let me tell you. What I've learned in my past years as a preschool teacher has taught me a lot with organizing the best timeline plan, handling the chaos with gentle authority, while also having fun and relaxed moments that are planned or candid throughout your day. When something throws us for a loop I'm quick to think on my feet for an alternative plan so that the stress falls off of you and onto the expert, me. I'm here to walk along side you while giving you the best service possible. Have a wedding coordinator? No problem! That just makes the day even better so that I can give you even more special attention throughout the day.
If there is anything I tell my couples is more important than finding the best style for your photographer it's that you get along and can see them spending the best day of your life with you. When you look back at your images you're going to remember more about how you felt in those moments than how you looked. Let's meet and make sure we're a great fit.
