When Maria and Kristen asked me to be their wedding photographer, I wasn't sure that I could book so far out into 2019. At the time, I was pregnant with Stella and imagining work/family balance was hard. But, they cared about me equally as a person and as a professional. They encouraged my work, and embraced my family. When they asked if I could do a destination engagement session on Mackinac Island, I was excited because 1. GORGEOUS people in gorgeous places and 2. the family could come. In fact, right before this session, we all had dinner together. Maria and Kristen played with my girls and connected with my husband. I felt so loved. I really think that came to play in their engagement pictures. I felt comfortable asking them to get in the water and play. I think that they felt comfortable with me and let me see their real smiles. The images we created are full of real intimacy and joy. I'm so glad I know them.
