about

If there's one thing in the world I adore, it's being a wedding photographer! I would call it the best job ever, but it doesn't feel like a job to me. More like hanging out with a friend on the day she marries the man of her dreams and having my camera in hand to document it all! I am obsessed with the National Parks  and have a deep love for 80's movies! Jake Ryan, anyone? I'm a huge history fan and my definition of  a perfect afternoon is wandering any of the Smithsonians, The MET or The DIA for hours on end. I'm obsessed with music: listening to it, watching it live, photographing my favorite bands when they're in town (you can see that here), and pretending I'm the next member of Taylor Swift's squad. ;)

 

I can’t leave home without: coconut lip balm and water.


I graduated from: The University of Michigan (Go Blue!!)


I once met: Jonathan Bennett (Aaron Samuels) and he quoted the "I'm from Michigan" line from Mean Girls to me.


My dream dinner party invite list would be: Taylor Swift, James Dean, Jackie O, Arthur Elgort, Lauren Graham and Bruce Springsteen.


My drink of choice is: Chateau Grand Traverse Riesling, green juice or ginger tea.

FIVE QUESTIONS

When I’m not busy working, you can find me: catching a great band at a local venue, trying new recipes, hiking, kayaking and gardening in the summer, with my nose in a book or snowshoeing in the winter, and always planning my next travel adventure.
