Custom Wedding Proposal

October 25th, 2025 - Italian American Cultural Center: Clinton Township

Known for my photojournalistic approach with editorial flair, my passion lies in capturing gorgeous events candidly and artfully directed. Even on the biggest days of our lives, I believe that the small details tell the best stories. The beginning of your legacy will be preserved forever in the art of photographs for generations to come.

I want you to be so completely immersed in your day that when you receive your final gallery, there are moments and details captured that you didn't even notice happening. I want you to look and feel like a million bucks without worry while you're actually present on your wedding day.

My approach to wedding days is candid and artfully directed as needed which truly creates a memorable experience. I carefully curate a blend of timeless editorial-inspired images and candid moments to showcase your whole story. I believe in having the best of both worlds.

WELCOME

MORE INFORMATION

While I do not require an engagement session with me before your wedding, I highly recommend one! I believe it’s done best when couples have a relationship with their photographer and fully trust them. When I arrive on a wedding day, we need to feel like old friends and not like strangers. These sessions ensure that you will go into your wedding day feeling comfortable and confident in front of the camera and we'll get to know each other better! We can chat about what your dream engagement session looks like and add one on at any time. They're up to two hours to give us enough buffer time between locations.

SAMPLE TIMELINE

Below, I've created a 8 hour timeline based on our call including portraits after the ceremony. With ten hours of coverage, we would be adding more time to the beginning and end of the day. I looked and the sunset for your specific date, it is projected around 6:34pm. Other than that, the core of your wedding day would be the same, although this is only a sample and we will finalize exact times and details one month before your wedding date.
