Custom Wedding Proposal

May 3rd, 2025 -Hidden Grove Estate: Williamston, Michigan

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

Sara, it was lovely chatting with you this yesterday! I loved everything you shared with me about your wedding day vision and the plans you’ve made so far.  I am honored to be considered as part of such a special occasion in your life. 

We spoke about your May 3rd, 2025 wedding at Hidden Grove Estate.

We’re looking at around 8-10 hours of wedding day coverage with most of the portraits done after the ceremony. Most weddings I photograph are around this length of time, because I truly find such value with easing into the day with photo in the bridal suite and catching those in between magical moments that happen when there’s enough buffer time. Even with opting of doing a first look, you could always consider capturing the bridesmaids and groomsmen formal photos after getting ready before the ceremony to save time post ceremony and just doing the entire party together at that time after family portraits and before your couples photos.

I understand it’s important to you to be in the moment with each other on your wedding day while still capturing some amazing couples portraits and that’s exactly why my clients choose to work with me. EFP clients are all about being present and maybe having some direction when it counts, but also having room to breathe to have a good time.

I’ve worked with plenty of other talented wedding vendors, so just let me know if you would like any additional recommendations for you to look into! I’m happy to help in any way I can.

ala carte and 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 will chat about what your dream engagement session looks like and schedule it once we plan together. They're up to two hours to give us enough buffer time between locations.
