Welcome to Taken By The Heart Photography!

Thank you so much for stopping by. I love what I do and the looks on my client's faces when they realize these are the moments they want to remember. You know, the pictures that give you goosebumps, chills and take your breath away. Pictures taken by the heart for the heart.

New Website and more of Katie and Austin

Still under construction but so excited to launch my new site. Cherie at Daisy Corner Design did a wonderful job. I love it!  Now...more of Katie and Austin!

{Katie + Austin} Sneak Peak!

"Good things come to those who wait"...

From castle grounds with a Shakespeare Festival to mowed prairie grass on a golf course the location was uncertain. But I reminded myself that all things happen for a reason and I would go to plan C...whatever that was. Then came the revelation...a renovated barn, covered bridge and antique wagon (Thank you Paynes).  God knew all along the setting these two needed and blessed all of us beyond our imagination.

Katie and Austin are planning a June 1st, 2012 wedding on the grounds of Mackinaw Valley Vineyard. With a time of 6pm the setting will be beautiful only to match this couple and their life ahead.

The launch of my new website and more of Katie and Austin coming soon!

My niece graciously asked me to take pictures of her 6 month old son...Bo.

Her husband Mark was patient, her step daughter Sophie was precious, but the real trooper was Bo for he was 2 hours past his bedtime! June 16th was a perfect summer evening, one I'm sure we won't soon forget. Here are some of my favorites...though it was hard to choose.
