Mari happens to be one of the most patient and kind, extremely organized, and fun-loving women I know.

Denise + Jim • Engagement Session

This engagement session was so fun! And, I love when couples make our sessions uniquely their own. Denise and Jim brought their motorcycle that they spend so much time on together to the shoot. No better way to celebrate each other than with a shoot that involves your favorite pastime. These two are perfect for each other, and I cannot wait to spend their big day with them! Not much longer now...
