When I knew I was heading out to San Diego, I stumbled along Richelle’s instagram and found out her and my cousin were social media friends. I immediately was drawn to her style(I love anything and everything 70s). It just so happened she only lived 3 minutes from where I was staying, and I think it’s safe to say, it was meant to be:) I was really nervous walking up to her house, but her and her family couldn’t have been more welcoming to me! I walked in and immediately fell in love with their house, their style and them. They were so cool and laid back, and Ian made me a mimosa while I was there, so yes, I pretty much loved them. I had so much fun and thank you for welcoming me into your home and making my trip even better. I wish I lived out there because I know we would be great friends, but I’ll settle for taking photos of your cute fam anytime i’m out there 🙂 I hope you enjoy these memories as much as I enjoyed capturing them. xoxoxo

When Javier and Heather first booked me for their wedding, I literally jumped up and down on my couch from excitement. There’s been a part of me that has always wanted to move out there, it’s one of my favorite places on earth so I couldn’t wait to go and take photos. Heather and I were talking about where to do their shoot, it was a pretty unanimous vote, and we decided on the desert.  Heather booked a room at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, I’ve always seen it on social media, but that has been once place I haven’t been. I had been looking forward to Heather and Jav’s shoot for months, I thought it was perfect to head out there and escape winter here in Michigan 🙂 It was so great to meet these two, I had so much fun exploring with them and I can’t imagine how special their wedding is going to be. Thanks for letting me experience this time with you two! xoxoace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagementace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagementace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagementace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagementace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-madewell style105ace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style109ace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-madewell styleace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-madewell styleace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-madewell styleace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style- palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people styleace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-men fashionace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people styleace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people styleace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-madewell people styleace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-madewell people styleace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-madewell people styleace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-madewell people styleace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-madewell people styleace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-madewell people style-wood clutchace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-madewell people styleace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-madewell people style107ace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-madewell people styleace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-madewell people styleace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmills105ace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-madewell people styleace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-madewell people styleace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmills153ace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-madewell people styleace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmills133ace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmillsace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-madewell people styleace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-madewell people styleace hotel engagement photos- palm springs engagement-free people style-palm springs windmills253149

I wish I could put into words how much I love this couple. I met Janell a little over a year ago. I was looking for a 2nd shooter and I found more than that, she has become a great friend.  She is literally the kindest person i’ve ever met and when I talk about her, I always put my hand over my heart, because that’s just how people feel around Janell.

I was so excited when she asked me to be a part of her and Kyle’s wedding. She had a vision, she wanted it small, in the woods, with snow on the ground. It didn’t seem like too much to ask, since we live in Michigan.  Our first huge snow fall happened right before Christmas, unfortunately, these two didn’t have everything ready just yet. We had been texting back and forth wishing that we would see snow in the forecast, but it wasn’t looking good! Then it finally happened, so they rushed to get everything done in just under a week, and it turned out perfect.

These two, they are so in love. They both care so much about each other, even the gifts they gave each other were some of the most thoughtful I had ever been a part of. They also gave every single person that attended their wedding a gift, that Janell handmade. Told you she was great. I am so happy for these two and I am so thankful and grateful I was there to capture this beautiful day. It’s weddings and people like this that give me the best job in the world.  I love you two! xoxo

Kyle made this for Janell our of their first Christmas Tree. He wanted to surprise her with it at the ceremony and he carved, “forever my love” into it. How cute are they?? Janell’s mom seeing it for the first time right here.

When I first met Victoria and Colbert, I couldn’t wait to shoot their wedding. They were getting married in Northern Michigan on the beach with all of their closest family and friends. I arrived in Petoskey the night before the wedding, it was blue skies and pretty much perfect,  I was hoping Saturday would be similar weather. My second shooter and I woke up Saturday to crazy wind and rain, the wind was so bad, the branches outside were hitting our hotel room window. It’s always a little nerve wracking when the weather is like this, as a photographer, everyone looks to you for direction. I love my job so much that I 100% care about the photos as much as my client does. I want them to be the best they can be, so I was trying to have the mindset that everything would work out, and it did, and this was one of my favorite weddings of the year. I arrived at Victoria’s family home and while I was taking photos of her details, I heard her and her mom screaming downstairs. They were getting all of their anger out because the weather wasn’t what they had dreamed of for the big day. They were debating on whether or not to have the ceremony outside and chance it. Victoria’s dad made the call shortly before, it looked like we had a small window of no rain, so they decided to go ahead and do it outside! About 2 minutes into the ceremony, it started pouring and everyone barely made it to the tent. Even though it was a little hectic, this was THEIR day.  Victoria and Colbert made the best of it, wouldn’t let rain ruin their wedding, and because of that, I was able to get some amazing shots. This day was a day they will never forget, and I won’t either.

I love these.  I showed Victoria the picture of her on the left, and this was her reaction on the right 🙂

Crossing her fingers for no rain! Victoria was a little nervous, so her brother(man of honor), helped her relax by jumping up and down. They are so fun. <3
