Traverse City's Timeless & FUN Wedding Photographer

I'll guide you when needed, catch those in-between moments, and capture your love story - easily and authentically.

And I've got years of experience doing just that, which means one less thing for you to worry about.

You're looking for:

Timeless. Easy. Fun.


You want someone who will help you look your best when you're in front of the camera, but who has the eye to capture the way your partner grabs your hand or brushes your hair back as they pull you in close. You want to look back at your photos and see the day just as you remember it - the morning light through the window as you're getting ready for this day, the green of the summer grass, the colors of the autumn leaves, and the wild moves your best friend was laying down on the dance floor. You want your photographer to be sure to capture all of it - authentically. And you definitely want to like that person.


You're not tied to traditions. You value relationships over things. You're always up for an adventure.


If this sounds like you, we're off to a great start.

WHAT TO EXPECT


We love creating a time for you to relax and just enjoy being together because we believe in the importance of unplugging. This results in more than just classic portraits, but a set of memories to look back on and see the real and raw joy, love, and laughter that filled each moment.



Nearly 100 amazing couples have entrusted me to photograph their wedding and capture the memories that will remind them of their wedding day forever. I bring all that experience to your wedding. I know how to put you at ease if you're nervous about having photos taken and I'm there to help every step of the way. I offer consultation meetings and calls to help with planning your timeline, as well as access to my full wedding guide with over 70 pages of helpful tips.


Our first step will be to schedule a time to meet via Zoom - it's important to met that we're a good fit for each other since we spend the whole day together! After we talk, I'll recommend the best Wedding Collection for your day.

If I'm already booked on your wedding day, I'll tell you about my Associate Shooter options. I only work with associates I've carefully selected for their unique eye, ability to capture authentic candids, knowledge of our craft, quality gear, and excellent reliability. Most importantly, I only work with associates who are FUN - I'd let them shoot my wedding.


Whether you're getting married in a vintage barn, at vineyard with 500 guests, or on a sail boat with just the two of you, we'd love to be there to capture the day that marks the start of your married lives together.

When it comes to my style & what you can expect:

I keep all my sessions PLAYFUL. I want to bring out your natural reactions and expressions, while also giving you direction to feel confident and calm. I look for both soft, glowy light as well as unique highlights and shadows to play with. I capture a healthy balance of classic portraits and candid images to make up your gallery. I'll remove most basic imperfections and use some soft skin smoothing, but I am not a photographer who uses photoshop heavily. When I say authentic and natural - that's what I mean.

Professional photo touch ups are available at an additional cost if you're looking for that airbrushed look on your images.

Your images will be delivered in mostly true to life color, with some in black and white. You can expect natural greens, natural color saturation, and warmer, higher contrast images that pop and make you feel the emotions. I pride my work on being timeless, not trendy.

Think we'd be a great fit? Let's chat.
