my approach

my approach to shooting couples & weddings is much like I approach my own life.
I searh for beauty everywhere and savor moments of authenticity & joy. 
 I approach my couples by leading them with gentle direction, while creating images that have a magazine worthy, editorial feel.
i guide my clients to feel calm & confident during our time together in front of the camera.

I waited very patiently for over a decade for the perfect space to create, meet with clients and shoot indoor portrait sessions in the winter. Join me in the heart of Downtown Ann Arbor and in the studio for a portrait session, or a cup of coffee while planning your wedding day.

When I'm not shooting gorgeous weddings, I turn my attention to shooting seniors, which I LOVE.

I truly support diversity and inclusion, and consider my business a safe place for all expressions of love + identity.  


I believe your wedding day is about you, not about the camera. It should unfold naturally, revealing all of those raw and real emotions that brought you to this moment. 

I want you to look back on your wedding day in 10, 20, or 50 years and remember what your wedding day felt like ... not just want it looked like. 

A creative collaboration.

I consider our time together a creative collaboration.  This means that I listen intently to your vision, while bringing my experience, creativity and expertise to the table to create images that speak to you and your story. 

images you can feel.

I want you to relive your wedding day over, and over and over. I am a fully licensed business and carry a full line of professional products & resources to help you archive and enjoy your images for the rest of your lives.  

After all, these images will be your legacy. 

my philosophy:


We love what
we seE!

Great, let's hop on a call or grab a coffee at my Nickels Arcade Studio to see if we're a good fit and if I still have your date open.
