I had the pleasure of photographing this amazingly stylish wedding earlier in the winter.   It was really our honor to be part of this wonderful day, filled with wonderful people.   Truly, Lis and Matt are two of the kindest people I've ever met. Their wedding was held at the Masonic Temple.  This venue is such an important part of Detroit's grand history.  The building had so many opportunities for incorporating it's

What a beautiful sunny day they had to play in the snow!   These great engagement photos were created by Anna, MNP Associate Photographer.  Despite the chilly temps, they sure look like they were having fun!   Can't wait for the wedding day, and to see Anna's work as a result! Congratulations Dan and Colleen!

What a beautiful backdrop for a wedding — the first snow of 2013 on a chilly November evening.    Rod and Beth looked stunning for their elegant event, starting with getting ready at the Book Cadillac Hotel and the ceremony and reception at the Gem Theater, all in Detroit.  It was truly an honor to photograph this special day for Rod, Beth and their family.  Congratulations!

It's always a good time of year to come into the studio and get some great shots. Just because we're using a backdrop and studio lights, doesn't mean we can't get really creative and spontaneous. Here are a few favorites from a recent session with this adorable family!

It was very chilly when we braved the weather for a quick mini-session in downtown Birmingham. We agreed that this needed to be quick and to keep moving! So, our plan was to shoot it as if I were  covering the story of "cold temps don't slow down families in the city" for the newspaper, and they just so happened to be the family in every shot.     Here are

  We had such a great time photographing this wedding. Anna and I got amazing photos everywhere ... from Courtney's house getting ready, at the church, down in Eastern Market, and at the DAC ... in the old phone booths,  the ballroom and on the rooftop.  Here are a few favorites of mine, but there were so many, it was difficult to choose!

December 4, 2013 Calvin is 3-months old

In three short months, this cutie pie has grown so big!  During this shoot at his home, Calvin was taking in everything with his adorable eyes ... especially me with my camera. There were a few shots that were so "in the moment"  I wanted to share. Isn't this what a little one does at three months?  ... look at everything intently, touch things, explore, respond, and just take it all in

I was so happy to see all of the gorgeous photos from Lena & Dan's wedding!  I knew there would be a ton of photos, because we were really lucky with locations, weather, and fun (not to mention beautiful) people to photograph.     Getting ready took place at the Westin, Renaissance Center.  The ceremony was at Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral, and the reception was at the Rattlesnake Club.
