Kaylie and I went to high school together and actually met in my first ever photography class! We’ve kept in touch since then, and I was so excited when she asked me to be her wedding photographer. She and her fiance Martin love Detroit, so we visited a few of their favorite places around the city for their engagement session. They brought along their dog and Kaylie’s sister Danielle to help out, and we finished up at Atwater brewery for dinner and beers! – xo – Laura Jude

I met Rachel and Dominic through our mutual love of craft beer, and we immediately connected! We shot their engagement session around Downtown Rochester, and sorry not sorry, but there are a LOT with their dog Tribute (and also some beer). I cannot say enough how much I LOVE including pets in portrait sessions! They are such an important part of our families, and they deserve to be in on the love. Plus, they are cute and fun and bring an extra element of life to the images! – xo – Laura Jude


Last Winter was full of snowy Michigan adventures for me. The Eben Ice caves in the Upper Peninsula had been on my bucket list for a long time, and it was SO cool to see in person! It’s a short little hike through the woods to this pretty epic little ice cave formation. It’s on private property, but the owners are gracious enough to let people park and hike in. They even have porta-potties and a little hot chocolate stand, which is an awesome treat after a cold hike! The day after our visit to the caves, we hiked out to a frozen water fall and watched the sunset by the lighthouse in St. Ignace, MI. I love going on little weekend trips to new places in Michigan; even in the Winter, there are awesome things to see! – xo – Laura Jude
