You’ll think me crazy but before two years ago, I had not been to Belle Isle in Detroit for probably two decades. It’s crazy.... trust me I know. My boyfriend and I have birthdays two days apart, but I am a year wiser! Two years ago, we celebrated our birthdays in Detroit, which was to start our tradition. We decided to drive around Belle Isle and I instantly became obsessed. I fell in love with the Belle Isle Casino and vowed to either have my own wedding there or shoot a wedding there!!Read More
Eeeekkkk!!! I can't fully put into words how awesome this session was! I love when my clients trust my vision. I asked them if they would be down for a sunrise engagement session in Detroit on the beautiful Belle Isle. As runners, waking up early was not a bother to them. They completely were on board. This beautiful couple gets married in September at the amazing Belle Isle Casino. To say I'm excited for this wedding is an understatement. The moment I stepped foot on Belle Isle, I knew my next goal was to shoot a wedding there!Read More
Weddings are a beautiful thing to me. Whether they be big, or small, as long as the two people getting married have so much love for each other, nothing else seems to matter. But when you can feel the love from the guests, that just makes the day so much better. J & R had so much love for each other and so much love in their presence that I could clearly feel it. My job is to capture the love that is shared. Let's just say it was really easy with these two.Read More
In the age that we live in, it's so easy to get a picture. We have cameras on our cell phones that we can instantly share with the world. The problem with this is that pictures tend to be stored on the computer or our phone. Sometimes they get lost forever when hard drives crash or cell phones get damaged. The Cloud is useful to store images in this situation but again we have it where the images are just being stored.
Those special moments need to be seen and not stored. Pictures deserve to be printed. They need to be on walls, or on tables so when you walk by, you get that special feeling of that memory. Or in albums so when you are feeling nostalgic, you can turn the pages and relive these sacred moments. These prints do not even have to be professional prints. I have prints on my walls of my trips. Every time I look at these prints, I get a wave of memories that will forever keep the trip alive.Read More
Detroit is well known as the MotorCity. It's history is centered around one main industry; automobiles. For over 100 years, this city has depended on the industry that has moved it!
Detroit weddings are one of my favorites to photograph. A couple years ago, I had the honor of second shooting my cousin's wedding. My cousin worked in the city for as long as I could remember and loved it. My love for the city came later in my life, whereas she loved it for most of hers. It was no surprise that her wedding day revolved around the awesome sights in the city. This was the first wedding where I realized that I loved Detroit to the fullest. This was the day that I knew I wanted to shoot weddings in Detroit for the rest of my life :)Read More
