mariposa || a vintage styled photoshoot

i am pleased and excited to debut to all of you the first part of a lovely collaboration from my team. this was a brainchild in order to keep me on my creative toes in between photography appointments. aptly named mariposa (meaning butterfly), it is symbolic of my venture into doing more styled shoots and art direction, finally forming a team of amazing creatives and taking risks to be surprised by the outcome. without further ado enjoy the first part of this series!

mustache mugshot

thanksgiving was spent in chicago (as the usual) with lots of food, family, dancing, and laughter. turns out some of my cousins decided to participate for movember and what facial hair they did have was quite impressive. i couldn’t resist doing these mustache portraits, commemorating their achievements. :p

steve + kate // underwater engagement

when i found out steve + kate wanted me to be upcoming wedding, i was ecstatic. as we discussed possible locations to do their engagement photos… i threw in the idea (ok it’s been a sincere desire of my heart actually) to do a photos underwater. to my delight and pure joy, kate was completely for it! after our first session in downtown detroit we found ourselves a few weeks later on a mild september day in a pool, ready to dive in. my dearest friend nicole who is a wonderful photographer (a post on that later), assisted me with this shoot capturing the sweet moments above water.

dan + hilary // year one

such an honor to capture the love between these two. to celebrate their one year anniversary, hilary wanted to do trash the dress photos. the morning of this shoot, there was a torrential downpour and dan & hilary’s street was completely flooded. thankfully we didn’t have to wait long until the sun came out and dried up all the rain. : )
