Snowy Winter Detroit Engagement Session | Laura & Dillon

Snowy Winter Detroit Engagement Session | Laura & Dillon

When we planned Laura and Dillon’s engagement session, we truly had no idea we’d be in for a snowy winter Detroit engagement session (though apparently they were secretly hoping for it!). If you’re having a winter engagement session, doesn’t snow make it all the more wonderful?

Before we headed out for their snowy winter Detroit engagement session at Maybury State Park in Northville, I stopped by Laura and Dillon’s home to meet their brand new puppy, Kane. He was absolutely ADORABLE and such a baby (I know he’s a big boy now)! I love that they wanted to incorporate their new pup — dogs are alway welcome!

There’s something about the snow that quiets the world. We had Maybury to ourselves and in the snow (or really any season) it never disappoints. Shooting in the snow is a little easier than shooting in the rain, but you have about 20 minutes before your hair starts to get wet! Laura and Dillon loved it and were amazing in front of the camera. I’m so glad they were pumped about the snow! True Michiganders.

Though they’ve postponed their 2020 wedding to May 2021, I still can’t wait to spend the day with them in downtown Detroit (a departure from their engagement session). It’s going to be a blast!

Northville Maternity Photographer

Northville Maternity Photographer

Because I primarily am a wedding photographer, I don’t get to put on a Northville maternity photographer hat too often. But when I do, it’s a lot of fun!

Shelby and Matt have since welcomed their little Layla (she was born in January), but I wanted to share their beautiful winter maternity session at Maybury State Park.

I absolutely love the dress color that Shelby choose. A brighter color always sticks out well in the winter months against the somewhat brown-ish backdrop. Also the red and the evergreens…just beautiful! 

As a Northville maternity photographer, I had a ton of fun guiding Shelby and Matt through this session, but they were total naturals! Literally so much fun to be around and they didn’t complain about the cold at all!

Maybury State Park is one of my favorite spots in the area for photos because of the beautiful tall grass fields, forest, and evergreens all easily accessible without taking a long hike. Simple goes further in my book!

Fall Maybury State Park Engagement | Nick & Alysia

Fall Maybury State Park Engagement | Nick & Alysia

There is a secret to fall in Michigan…it is best in early November. Many believe the fall colors to be strongest in mid-October, but not in Metro Detroit. The best color is usually the last week of October and first week of November, which is when I met up with Nick and Alysia for their fall Maybury State Park engagement session.

Maybury State Park is one of my favorite places for an engagement session any time of year. I really love the fields and trails available at the park, as well as the fact that the great locations are steps from the parking lot, making it perfect for families.

Nick and Alysia are so sweet and just easy to talk to. We chatted about coffee. They’re also super brave to pick the morning session, which almost no one does, and they love the outdoors. These two even hiked with me down to the beautiful pond on the other side of the park, which was worth it!

When I look back at this fall Maybury State Park engagement session, I feel so nostalgic for fall…it comes so quickly and leaves so quickly. I wish it stuck around a little longer.

I can’t wait for Nick and Alysia’s August wedding!

Brittany & Taylor | Maybury State Park Engagement

Brittany & Taylor | Maybury State Park Engagement

When I met Brittany and Taylor back in December 2017, I instantly felt very comfortable with them. They were the kind of clients you hope for as a photographer: they cared a lot about their wedding day photography and asked great questions. Easy to talk to, and super sweet, I left our initial consultation hoping that they would indeed choose me to photograph their New Year’s Eve wedding. Thank goodness they did!

I’m just getting around to blogging these beautiful images of their March engagement session at Maybury State Park in Northville. After several winter sessions with zero sunshine, I was happy to get a little bit of golden hour with snow in the woods. I think Brittany and Taylor are perhaps my most adventurous couple to date, and I think that shows in their photos. They are also 100 percent incredibly in love — and it shows.

I know that it’s summertime and we don’t want to think about snow on the ground, but this session was WAY too good not to share with you.  Snow photographs so beautifully and I’m so excited for all 3 of my December weddings this year, including Brittany and Taylor’s where I’ll end this year on a high note!
