MY COUPLES DESCRIBE ME AS...
"...calm in a sea of chaos and kept us laughing and light-hearted."
— joseph + anne
“I document expressive and timeless Metro Detroit weddings for couples who value experience, integrity, and authenticity.”
If we were stuck in an elevator, I'd tell you that...
...But, we’re not stuck in an elevator. So if you have a few moments to spare. Keep reading to find out what I’m all about. I’m sure you know, it’s hard to describe yourself. What I can tell you though is that I am a cross between an old soul and a young spirit. If you’re anything like me, you treasure time with your grandparents, have pride in your home, and love being there, but also enjoy seeking new experiences and adventuring outdoors.
My friends describe me as honest and straightforward, but I love to have a good time. You may also love spending time with your friends and appreciate downright honesty. You likely believe in expressing individuality, being fully present, authentic moments over fake smiles, savoring moments over things, and living in the moment. Does that sound like you? Because that’s totally me!
We don't have to be the same, not even close. But I hope you can find some common interests or desires. I aim to give purpose to everything I do in life. My photographs are my way of leaving a mark on the world and documenting moments that would otherwise be forever lost. I love creating a permanent record of these precious moments in time. That is why weddings are one of my absolute favorite events to document; you can't beat capturing two people in love on the most magnificent day of their lives. I not only specialize in weddings, but also lifestyle photography which embodies my entire purpose of documenting the authentic and unposed. If I'm not wearing a mask, you'll often catch me smiling behind my camera because I am overjoyed by capturing your moments.
