WEDDING & PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY

BASED IN traverse city, mi

Though your photos are important to both of us, you are my main priority. Before I can capture the laugh your fiancee loves as he’s pulling you close or the tears in your mother’s eyes as you walk down the aisle, I want to know the details: your love story, favorite restaurants, hobbies, and more. My intention is to capture the memories you make and give them a home for you to look back on in the future. When we put our trust in each other these moments will feel genuinely comfortable and authentic.

Know that you are not alone in this process. I am here to carry your worries and answer your questions. Having shot an abundance of weddings throughout my ten year career, I have learned a substantial amount about the flow of the wedding process and how to best take care of you through it all.

Let us laugh together, cry together, and give you the wedding you’ve always dreamed of.
