I had so much fun tonight with Taylor and Jordan. I cannot believe this is my job... what the heck. Check out my story for a look into this fun filled evening in downtown Detroit. ✨

Love me in the dark, love me in the light..

Shot a senior today and I just have to say, when tf did these teens get so pretty at such a young age? I’m so shook. I had to burn all of my high school pictures years ago for emotional stability....

So. Much. Yes! 🙌🏼

Times they are a changin’ — all my Chicago photo-friends are moving away... 😭 And while it’s a bummer, I am so grateful for the time we had here in this amazing city, and also for the many lovely collaborations we did together! 👌🏼❤️📷 @alexandria.odekirk, thank you for lending your elegance and dance skills for this shoot. 💃🏻 Will miss you, but I am excited to see what’s in store for you, too!

Missing the times when I was adventuring on the North Shore of Oahu. Anyone getting married and need an elopement photographer? I always have had a huge thirst for travel that I can never quench. I typically plan last min and go where the wind takes me.
What are your travel plans for the next year? Whose going to Iceland? That’s next on my list hopefully 🤙🏼

That blissful gust of wind on a sweltering day

Oh, I can’t wait to share Saturday’s wedding with you later this week on the blog!! Kyle and Kristi had the most gorgeous day at @theedgeh2o! 😍❤️ From the floral by @daffodilparker to Kristi’s gown and cathedral veil, not a detail was over-looked or out of place! After so many years together, I am so happy for these two and glad they were able to celebrate with the wedding of their dreams!!! Meet the Merrys! 👈🏻 I had to, it’s just too cute!!!! ☺️ #maisonmeredith #welovemarriage

Have you ever felt embarrassed or insufficient about something you feel called to do?
Just last night, I was talking to Aaron on the phone about marketing and how important social media and especially Instagram is for networking myself and my business. I felt almost embarrassed when I was explaining to him all the things I was learning about hash and geo-tagging. I felt nervous to tell him that over everything else I want my brand to be not just about my photos or my services, but to be about making relationships becoming actual friends through this platform of social media. I could barely get it out because I was so worried that he would laugh at me.
I just assumed that he would say, Becka, you are being ridiculous, you aren't good enough, you don't need social media because no one will hire you anyways no matter how much you network, and how on earth are you going to make friends this way.... (Which is silly because Aaron would literally never say something like that, haha)
But the words that actually came out of his mouth were encouraging, empowering, and so incredibly life-giving to me and my dreams. Suddenly I realized that what I expected to come out of HIS mouth were actually running around in MY mind... Those were MY negative thoughts that I was believing, or rather, that was Satan trying to steal MY joy.
This running a business thing isn't as easy as it may look, and for all you fellow creatives out there tryin' to make a living off of what you love, don't give up!
This talent that you have to be a creative is a gift from the Father and it wasn't an accident!!
Use the talent that you have, and you BETTER not give up because I look up to you SO FREAKING MUCH!
We are in this together! (cue High School Musical 🎶) So please just remember friends:
You ARE good enough
You ARE worthy
You CAN do this
You are NOT alone
I believe in you
Anybody else with me?

Words can’t even begin to describe what an incredible shoot this was. From the laughter to the learning and friendships made. Getting together with creative minds that value community over competition is absolutely heartwarming. After only 15 minutes into this shoot, I looked around and thought to myself, “These are my people.” 💗

Ashley + Alister....to have and hold forever.

Mollie + Mike are married and ready to outrun any rain that comes their way!
One thing that stuck out to me about these two on their wedding day was Mollie’s care for others and Mike’s care for Mollie. They both have hearts of gold and killer dance moves.💛💃🏽🕺🏼
What more could you ask for?!

June has been a busy wedding month but I’ve had the best couples. Congrats Katie and Bryce! 🌼

All the getting ready vibes with this babe ✨💫
