Now that we’re firmly in the middle of Michigan winter, I love looking back at my summer shoots. Kelsey and Steven brought even more beauty (and love!) to their gorgeous West Michigan wedding venue – and one of my absolute favorites – Hidden Vineyard.  K + S have been together for over a decade, and […]

Ashley and Owen kiss in front of Greencrest Manor in Battle Creek, MI. Photo by Cynthia Mae Photography

This is one of my favorite engagement sessions to date.. not just because the venue (Greencrest Manor) was beautiful, but because Ashley and Owen are my kind of people! I got connected with them through a wedding this past summer. Their kindness radiates almost as much as their love does. I cannot wait for their […]

Marie and Justin kiss in front of Lake Michigan at Warren Dunes State Park

I could NOT wait to share this Warren Dunes State Park engagement session. I can hardly believe these images were taken in late October.. the sunset was stunning. I won’t even tell you that the forecast predicted rain the entire session 😉 Keep scrolling to see the prettiest sunset ever. You won’t be disappointed!

Engagement Session at Asylum Lake Preserve

Check out this beautiful summer engagement session in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

[dropcap] This is the last engagement session I will be sharing until Miss Vanessa is born! So crazy to think!! [/dropcap] I met up with Kim + Steve at Celery Flatts for their engagement session in nearly 90 degree heat, but looking at these images now you cannot even tell it was so hot out! […]

It kind of feels like I’ve been pregnant forever, but at the same time it’s flown by. I am a mess of emotions.. from being absolutely stoked to nervous, sentimental, hormonal…. those of you […]

[dropcap] Two [/dropcap] snowy + wintery engagement shoots within 24 hours.. I’m cold! Ha! Detroit was so beautiful on Sunday despite the weather (and busy! The car show was going on just a couple of blocks away!). From the Detroit Institute of the Arts to Z Lot and then the Apparatus Room, these locations were […]

[dropcap]When[/dropcap] I think of last Saturday, I don’t think about how cold is was or how windy it was, I think about how much fun Brittany, Sam, and I had for their engagement session! These two traveled all the way up from Indiana so we could have some snowy engagement photos, and the weather did […]

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he secret is finally out! Yes, it’s true; I’m pregnant! It still feels surreal, honestly. The thought that in just a few short months, Isaiah and I will be parents is crazy to think. We can’t stop thinking of names, nursery ideas, plans for the future, etc. (We are keeping the names a secret until […]
