Autumn and Jeff. I adore this couple! They are both archeologists (I mean, how amazing is that?!) and I love the details from that they incorporated into their wedding. It was a rainy, early summer day in the Upper Peninsula. But that didn't matter...we were loaded up with our umbrellas and this couple was so in love, I don't think they even noticed the rain! After the bride finished getting ready...

Kristyn and Jack are rockstars. They are one of the funnest couples we've had the honor to photograph (seriously, my husband keeps talking about how much Kristyn made him laugh during the course of the wedding day...she's just awesome like that!) and every detail of their wedding day was perfect...
I'm SO excited to have this exclusive feature in Outre Bride! Eric and Erica are one of my most photographed couples (I've photographed weddings, family...
Spencer and Mike's engagement session took place in the middle of fall, in the heart of Petoskey, located in the gorgeous Northern Lower Peninsula of Michigan. While it WAS the peak weekend for foliage in the UP, Petoskey wasn't entirely arrived yet just slightly south, but was nonetheless the perfect setting for the session...
Kory and Chelsea...I cannot say enough amazing things about this couple! I remember chatting with them about their wedding day during the engagement session (which you can view HERE if you wish!) and I remember thinking about how excited I was with all they described and had planned. As the big day drew closer and we finalized the wedding day photography details, my excitement grew and grew and this spectacular wedding did not disappoint! This wedding on this hot summer day was...
Haley and Sam are two amazing people that together make such a beautiful couple. Haley was one of my first 2017 weddings to book, so we've been looking forward to this engagement session for a few months now. When she mentioned doing the session at Presque Isle in Marquette, Michigan, I knew this would be an amazing session. I mean, Presque Isle is one of my FAVORITES to shoot at (I've blogged several sessions from there, you can totally see why!) and always love the chance to shoot there whenever possible. But also, I knew this session would be wonderful from corresponding with Haley these...
I first got in touch with Emma and Matt thru Matt's sister and her fiancé (you can see their amazing engagement session HERE) when they were looking for a photographer once they became engaged. I was SO excited that Emma and Matt wanted their engagement session done in the Upper Peninsula AND in the winter. I seriously love everything about the spring/summer/fall, but there's something about a winter engagement session, and in Michigan no less, that's perfect in every way. I love that it's such a contrast from their Minnesota wedding later this...

I love when a session with my clients gets published, and today it is one of our favorites of Joe and Teja in the gorgeous Marquette, Michigan. Thank you so much to Brown Sparrow Weddings for the feature...more
Teja contacted me mid-February inquiring about an engagement session with her and her fiance, Joe, and I loved the though of doing their winter engagement session at the Presque Isle in Marquette, one of the places they brought up as a location. Always a favorite of mine, for sure! Teja was visiting Joe from Minnesota, and like most sessions where they had a small window for the session so fingers were crossed the weather would cooperate for us. The morning of the session it was gorgeous. Sunny, and not a cloud in the sky! But it was COLD! On the way to the session my car registered below zero, but thankfully but the start of the session it had warmed up into the 20's. Still cold, but that sun did feel amazing!!
Joe and Krista's wedding day this past summer was as perfect as you can plan for. Their wedding (held on the shores of Lake Superior in Grand Marais, MI) was sunny and warm, and perfect for all their guests who came in to town to celebrate. The two themselves do not live in the Upper Peninsula, but wanted to have their wedding in Grand Marais, and I was so overjoyed the day started so perfect for them! But this story does have a few curve balls thrown in...continue reading quite the wedding day story!
Continuing my blogging of past sessions from this summer and fall, I'm so excited to be sharing some favorites from Eric and Erica's beautiful engagement! This couple is having their wedding in my hometown, and wanted the session on some of Erica's family property. It was perfection...the day, the couple, the locations. I just loved every second of these two and while I didn't include any below, there was SO many fun and goofy moments that I cannot wait to continue with their spring wedding in a few months!

This Upper Peninsula wedding we were honored to photograph this past summer in Curtis, Michigan was gorgeous. Like, a fairytale. All the details, and the reception tent by itself was just about a castle! But the icing on the cake was the beautiful couple...Emily and Josh are two of the sweetest people you will ever meet, and I loved getting to photograph their winter engagement to this perfect wedding day.
New Years Day is a great day to start out a new year with celebration. And a perfect day to say "I Do." The full blog post is coming on this one (soon!) but for now, enjoy a few of the images from a gorgeous holiday wedding <3
We started out at the ceremony location, St. Gregory's in Newberry, Michigan, a gorgeous place to be in the Upper Peninsula in the middle of winter!
This next image I love because it was literally ONE minute after that kiss at the alter (above). So perfectly happy!!
The next two images are super special because A) this is on my family property and B) the bride had a pinterest page with images just like this...the tall trees...and I was so thrilled to let her know I had *just* the spot. Oh, and C) this road is not plowed during the winter but it has been so mild out the snow wasn't super deep yet and thanks to one of the groom's relatives with a large truck, we made it!
My fave...how gorgeous are these ladies?!
A few moments, in their newlywed world, just the two of them <3
A gorgeous, simple, laid back wedding on the shores of Lake Superior...one of the gorgeous weddings we shot this summer in Grand Marais is featured on Midwestbride.com! Check out the link below <3
I love all the weddings we do...from the big to the small, the elaborate to simple. I think my brides all do an amazing job at making their weddings just the way they want and I love capturing it all. So when I get to tell my bride that their amazing wedding is being featured at theknot.com, that is even more amazing for the both of us!
Check out or recent wedding we did in Marquette, Michigan along Lake Superior. It was so special and wonderful. Full blog post is a few posts down on our page, but you can catch the "full" story from the bride and groom HERE on theknot.com
