International wedding and portrait photographer, based out of Ann Arbor Michigan, and available to shoot in Detroit, NYC, Chicago, California and worldwide.
"If I could I would live out of my MINI and spend all of my time on the road discovering new things, traveling the world and photographing moments."
I have been shooting professionally since 2008, while living in Japan. I have worked very hard to discover my style and my art. Along with learning how to run a business! Yes, I do this full time! Since 2008 I have photographed over 1000 family sessions, and over 100 weddings, in 3 different countries and 12 states. I love to travel!
You can see more of my work on Reverie Gallery, Hour Detroit, Style me pretty, Wedding chicks, Junebug, The Knot Magazine, Inspired weddings Magazine and Fusion Flowers Magazine, The knot Online, The Learned Bride, and many wedding vendor websites!
More important then experience and publications, I am a hopeless romantic and wear my heart on my sleeve. Its because of this why I do what I do, and why I take it so personal. There is more to photography then just picking up a camera and clicking the shutter button! You not only have to see the light, control the composition to bring viewers into the image, but I believe you have to feel the moment, to capture it as well. So when I am asked what I like photographing more Weddings, Families, Babies, Editorial. The answer is always the client and the moment, not the genre. It’s the excitement when a bride puts on her dress, the whispers of how amazing she looks when she makes her way down the isle, the intimacy during a first dance, when a dad makes his daughter giggle during a family shoot, getting a newborn to sleep so I can capture their little toes, the look mom and dads give each other during family shoots, one that says I love you for creating these little monsters with me, the moment when a floral designer sees their work come to life in an image, and seeing my work published in a magazine! It’s all of it and so much more why I work so much and sometimes put my own life on hold to capture yours.
So the clients I want are those who see value in that!
