A Whirlwind Week

10 days. 900 miles. Two cities. Two weddings. Four couples. Three incredible assistant photographers. Eight coffee shops (countless cups of coffee and tea). Hundreds of amazing moments. Much more to come.

House Flipping | Before + After

I come from a family of entrepreneurs. My sister, Adriane (who also happens to be the mother of this cute little guy), works in real estate here in the Lansing area, and she and her husband, Christopher, have been flipping houses and transforming neighborhoods for more years than I can keep track of at this point. Now that I live in the area, I was able to get a closer look at the before and after transformation of their latest project in Lansing’s Westside neighborhood. The vision that these two have is spectacular, and I’m lucky to have them on my side when it comes time to go looking for our first house (which will hopefully be very soon).

Amanda + Luis | MSU Horticulture Gardens Wedding

Want to see how my style has evolved since 2011? Check out my latest work on my blog, and browse my featured press.

Michigan bridal portraits

Amanda studied art, and it doesn’t take long to realize how talented she is. She created the most amazing DIY details for her spring wedding to Luis at the Michigan State Horticulture Gardens. It was a photographer’s paradise. Every last detail, from the programs to the table settings and flowers were absolutely gorgeous.

Amanda and Luis, I had so much fun with you and your guests on your wedding day, and I wish you all the best on your new adventures out in California!

Kali + Charlie | Grand Haven Beach Engagement Session

The beaches of Michigan are pure nostalgia for me, so I was thrilled to go to Grand Haven to shoot Kali and Charilie’s engagement session over the weekend (it also gave me a nice excuse to spend part of the day at the beach). I love the laughter and honest moments in these photos, and I’m so grateful to Kali and Charlie for sharing that little part of themselves. And Grand Haven—it’s such a perfect setting.

Kali and Charlie—enjoy your summer, and I’ll see you at your wedding this fall!
