Sometimes a peek is all you need…

Just two more days  until these two darlings tie the knot in one of my favorite cities Chicago, aka Chi-town, aka awesome sauce! Since their summer wedding is in the city we decided for a bit of  fun in the spring nature of Michigan for their engagement portraits.  Nicki I’ve known since she was a wee babe, her aunt is my bestie and I’ve been blessed  to work with her amazing family for years (I just shot her sister Tiffany’s wedding in May).  Nathan, Nate the Great as he is known to his close friends, I’ve gotten to know recently but as this small world goes we’ve met when I shot his cousins’  (Dorothy and Josh)  wedding. This is kind of a legacy wedding for me since both families are intertwined with my work since it began.   The best thing about these two is they make me laugh, hard and are always up for something crazy. I can’t wait to see what shenanigans we’ll get up to for the wedding, we have a whole city chock-full of mischief to claim. Nicki tries to keep us in check but I like where Nathan lets his ideas go! See you soon in the city!

Tiffany and Patrick joined me for some snow fun! We were waiting for the blizzards to hit us and boy did they not disappoint this year. Treading through trails of fields and forests in  snowbanks of 5ft at points, this was definitely a first for all of us! But so worth it, look at the goodies we got! We even finished off the fun with a traditional snowball fight. See the rest of the story unfold in May!

This past week I’ve been doing a ton of undercover work and getting invited to witness amazing moments of LOVE. Wednesday past I was hitching rides on boats to wonderful islands on Pure Michigan Lakes and hiding in grass taller then me to capture the surprise proposal Jason had planned for Andreea. With the wonderful help of Jason’s sister Jessie, his brother Sam (our soaked to the bone boat hero), and Andreea’s sister Jenny it turned out awesome and a definite surprise!

There’s a ton of behind the scenes of the planning and building phase that I’ll post of Facebook for fun! Make sure to watch for that coming up.

Such a pleasure and honor to photograph another photographers family! Emma Burcusel who is a dear friend and second shooter for weddings with me, and family photographer herself was so excited to get her family portraits done that she’s been planning for this for the past 3 or 4 months. Outfits and ideas galore! We went with a clean Ralph Lauren feel for wardrobe ( which i love!) and wow did they rock it. Emma even got beautified by the amazing Simona Vigh!  The last time we got to take their family portraits was over 2 years ago and the boys have just grown so much since then. They are such a loving family and I wanted to make sure I show the love that bonds them and just how much fun they generally have together. Thank you Emma, Gabe , Erik, and William for hanging out with me Saturday!!

Michelle is the 3rd Senior in the Family that I’ve had the pleasure to photograph and every time I meet up with them we try to step it up a notch. This time we not only stepped it up we blew it out of the park. We both were in Europe this summer and so we figured out we’d be near each other in Cluj, Romania and we decided to meet up and shoot in one of the most beautiful/exciting places in Romania. I love this city so much and having such a fantastic model to photograph just made it perfect. Michelle let me work on getting something different than the typical senior image and while we put in some awesome ones for mom and dad I think the ones we did with a fashion flair are our favs. Thanks so much for such a fun time Michelle and Co. Also Today is Michelle’s birthday so everyone make sure to send over your wishes to this lovely. Happy Birthday dear!

We had to have a Kurtos Kolaci Break! This is by far my favorite street dessert! Every time I’m in Romanian I search like mad to find myself some so when we passed a vendor, we could not just move on without purchasing!

Friendly furry photo-bomber.

A beautiful girl with a beautiful heart! We met up in Ann Arbor, MI to do her fabulous Senior Portraits. A book lover at heart we stepped into two libraries to shoot our session. She’s been patiently waiting for these to show up on here so I’m happy to oblige. Good luck in your Senior Year Mihaela!
