New York City Seaport District Engagement Session

Meeting Daina and Ben in the area of New York City that they live was like meeting friends I've known for years. They didn't hesitate to immediately be themselves even though there was a camera involved.

A Family Through The Years // 2016 – 2019

Completely undirected - Rachel, Lucas, Asher, Iris and Juniper have let me into their home and try my best to document life as it's happening. In 2016 there were only two kiddos - and…

2018 in Photographs

I don’t even know if the world looks at these blog posts anymore - but I know that I do. Every year I take a week to sit at my computer, go through every shoot I did in the year, think that my work is amazing, think that my work is garbage, slam my computer…

Camp Blodgett Weekend Wedding on Lake Michigan // Mary & Chris

Chris and Mary are the perfect example of what can happen when you decide to make a wedding your own. Who says you can't spend all weekend sleeping in cabins with your closest friends and family? Who says that instead of waking up at 8:00am for hair and makeup, you can spend your wedding morning…

The Masonic Wedding // Detroit, MI

Valerie and Kile's day was an overflow of emotions and unique style. I feel so lucky to have been a part of this day - and highly recommend that you watch the wedding film that Clark Motion Picture Co made. He is one man with multiple cameras who won't force you to stage anything about…
