Diane is a planner.  We met last year to talk about and book her 2018 wedding.  Exactly, a planner.  I like it though because I am a planner too.  It turns out, she is also an avid photographer.  Needless to say, hanging out with Diane and Jake turned out to be like hanging out with […]

After about a week and a half of being home, all 2008 images have been culled, 458 images have been edited, and my own personal coffee table album has been designed and printed.  I think that marks the fastest turnaround time for me following a vacation.  I largely contribute that feat to the fact that […]

Once Becky and I became engaged, we made it a goal to make 2017 our most memorable year yet.  We agreed to make wedding planning as fun as possible by celebrating every contract-signing, venue walkthrough, and item checked off our list.  We have been pairing our birthday gifts with checking items off of our respective […]

Spring is always an exciting time in Michigan.  The ground thaws, 50 degrees is considered shorts and flip-flops weather, and we actually get to see the sun!  Another reason why Spring is so nice: engagement sessions!  Stephanie and Dylan took me back to their ol’ stomping grounds, Michigan State University, to photograph their engagement session.
