Hi, I'm August!


The answer to my most frequently asked question is: I was actually born in April. Go figure!


My photography business began back in 2012 after my fiery passion for documenting people and their beautiful lives took hold of my heart. Ever since I was a kid and I had a little digital camera, I was obsessed with documenting everything. I am a nostalgic emotional girly


I went to art school in Toronto, Canada for 35mm film photography - I absolutely love film and working with my hands while developing, and I'm so happy to offer film options for weddings and shoots


My experience has taken me from portraits to fashion to weddings and I am humbled to have my work published in books and magazines internationally, as well as showcased in local galleries and featured on wedding sites

I love putting an artsy editorial spin on the candid and natural. I don't over-involve myself in the images I take as I love just seeing the moment and freezing it as it is. I move quickly when shooting, so your gallery can be the most diverse array of styles - Close crops, flash, blurry, artsy, grainy, editorial, documentary, posed, classic, zoomed out. I want to give you the most unique arrangement of photos possible instead of the same angle or the same photo with tiny variations over and over and over again

I've been photographing beautiful souls like yourself for as long as I can remember and have always been in love with capturing portraits and intimate moments. As someone who gets inspired and excited very easily by humans and emotions, it's pretty typical if our shoot is filled with lots of laughter and funny stories, but I also give enough space for you to interact naturally. I don't want to curate your experience too much


Outside of weddings, I'm a total homebody, book nerd, and creative introvert, unless I'm photographing, perusing a museum, or doing yoga at my local studio. I'm also a graphic designer, writer, doodler, and videographer for smaller scale projects. I love creating art in general and learning new skills and mediums. Photography is 1000000% my passion and my heart though, and working with you means the entire world to me

As a Grand Rapids native, now Detroit transplant, and Michigan lover, I use our diverse landscape and light to further tell your story. I am also available for travel for destination weddings and elopements!

If you feel awkward in front of the camera, it's totally normal! I offer fun, engaging, chill, 

and intimate prompts, so you and your partner feel comfy and cozy. My goal is always to make you feel confident and comfortable, so you can be fully present with your loved ones while I work to capture everything as it naturally unfolds
