Amber & Matt

Engagement Session  |  New Smyrna Beach, FL |  October 2014

There are few things better than a Florida beach on a beautiful fall afternoon. . . that is of course unless you have the pleasure of having two stunning (very much in love) models like these two! It’s always my goal to capture clients in a way that truly shows their real personalities, and with Amber and Matt that wasn’t difficult at all. They’re not only stunning in front of the camera, but they also came prepared with some ideas of their own, and they weren’t afraid to be a little goofy (mostly without prompting on my part). You don’t need me to tell you much more about this couple because both their dynamic as a duo and the love they share are both readily apparent in the photos.


Summer & Joe

Engagement Session  |  Frankfort, MI |  July 2014

Summertime is definitely making a strong case to be my favorite season of the year.  In large part because it’s generally the time of year when I get to travel back to the Midwest and photograph lovely people like this couple!  I’d been looking forward to Summer & Joe’s engagement session for a few weeks, but I got even more excited when I discovered that we would actually be doing their photos in Frankfort. (You may recognize this beautiful beach from Justin & Sarah’s Wedding post last summer!) Not only is Frankfort a lovely little town on the shore of Lake Michigan complete with plenty of cute shops and restaurants, but the beach is stunning and has a great lighthouse pier. We had a lot of fun waiting for the sun to set and trying to keep the cameras dry during their engagement session. I’m ecstatic that I get to photograph these two lovebirds again at their wedding in less than a year — plus it will be summertime again then!


Michelle & Chris

Engagement Session  |  New Smyrna Beach, FL |  November 2013

I’m almost embarrassed to admit that even though I’ve lived in Florida for almost two years now, and I hadn’t done a beach session until Michelle & Chris called me about their engagement photos. I couldn’t have asked for a better couple for fun in the sun though! Michelle & Chris are super laid-back, and they tolerated all my wacky ideas that had them sitting in the sand and walking through the surf. Their sunset session was not only a ton of fun, but also produced some gorgeous images. Congrats you two! I know you’ll have many happy years together!
