Anasa + Paul's Old Town Engagement Photos in Lansing

When I moved from Michigan to Boston 12 years ago, Old Town in Lansing was just beginning. It was literally a two block radius, and while I thought it was awesome, I wasn’t sure about it’s future as an up and coming neighborhood in Lansing. Well, I was wrong. When I returned to Michigan two years ago, I was so pleasantly surprised that not only had Old Town survived ten years, but it had also THRIVED and EXPANDED by several blocks in all directions and is continuing to do so. Old Town is such a bright spot in Lansing and I was so thankful to return to a city that has so much going for it.

Anasa and Paul also love Old Town, and even though they are getting married in Florida (where they met and are from), chose to have their engagement photos taken in the neighborhood that they love. Congratulations to these two on their engagement and upcoming wedding!!

Mallory + Jon's Fall East Lansing Engagement Session at MSU

Aren’t Mallory and Jon the cutest?? We had an absolutely gorgeous (but a tad chilly!) fall day for their engagement photos on the north campus of Michigan State University in East Lansing. People are often scared to wait and do their photos the first two weekends of November, but I swear, those two weekends always have the best fall color!! Thankfully, Mallory and Jon waited, and the fall color was GORGEOUS!! I can’t wait for their June wedding!

Annie + Austin's East Lansing Engagement Photos

Since Annie and Austin both attended MSU and even got engaged on Michigan State's campus, it was only fitting for them to have their engagement photos taken there. We started at the arboretum and then made our way over to Beaumont Tower. I love how these turned out, and can't wait until their wedding at Lovett Hall in Dearborn next month!

Allison + Mark's MSU Kellogg Center Wedding in East Lansing

Allison and Mark were married on the most gorgeous June day! Continuing my good luck with weddings this season, it was sunny and warm even though there had been a threat of a thunderstorm earlier in the week.  I started off the day photographing Allison getting ready at her and Mark's newly purchased in East Lansing (congrats again, guys!), while Sydney started off with the guys at the Kellogg Center. We met on MSU's campus in the Beal Gardens for the first look and wedding party and bride + groom portraits. Then, we headed over to the Kellogg Center for their beautiful garden patio ceremony and inside for the reception. 

Here are a few of my favorites from the day! Congratulations, Allison and Mark!

Carly + Scott's Atlantic Beach Club Newport RI Wedding

Happy Anniversary, Carly and Scott! Carly and Scott got married in April, year ago! Because I am oh SO behind in blogging, their wedding is just now making it's debut on the blog. I also have to say I am so proud of Carly and Scott- they worked hard with me on finishing their album in time for their wedding anniversary! They purchased one of my beautiful leather Signature albums. It always makes me happy when my couples choose to purchase a tangible piece of photography from their wedding that will become an heirloom and be passed down for generations. 

Their spring wedding took place in Newport, Rhode Island, but don't forget, I'm now booking weddings in Michigan, too (specifically the Greater Lansing and Ann Arbor areas, as well as Lake Michigan venues, Northern Michigan, Grand Rapids, and Metro Detroit)!
