Earlier this summer, we met up with Kelli and Carter in Dallas for their engagement session! We’re so glad this weekend was still able to happen in the midst of COVID-19.

Eloping on the Shores of Lake Michigan

Editorial

Wisconsin is full of natural beauty, and my favorite part of our beautiful state is the shores of Lake Michigan. How lucky are we to have such amazing bodies of water right in our backyard? The best part, in my opinion, is how the beaches make you feel like you’re on the ocean during the […]

Engagement

We all get sick of winter, but there’s something about being right smack dab in the middle of it, at a cabin on a lake, with a foot of fresh snow and a fire that makes it ohhh so appealing. When Margaret and Tim told me that they wanted me to capture them at one […]
