daphne's blog bio picture
  • Hello & welcome to daphne’s blog

    I found that I had too many beautiful images to share with people and my website didn't have enough space, so I've entered the world of blogging! I'm a photographer in the metro-Detroit area specializing in weddings, newborns, families, children, and event photography.

    I love what I do and being able to capture timeless moments of emotion and love that will bring joy to people for years and years. I'm so very lucky to have the job I do. I received my BFA in photography from the University of Michigan in 2000 and I've been shooting ever since. Simply put - I love love. I can't make up my mind as to which type of session I prefer so I like to do them all. Weddings are so amazing to shoot because of all the love and the powerful joyful emotions overflowing from the day - it's a dream to photograph. I'm also the mother of a 7 year old, Adler, who loves to ham it up in front of the camera and my little guy, Leopold, who is 1 and 1/2 and has way too many photos taken already, I can't keep up with all the ones I take. I understand how children operate and how patience and a kind attitude is essential during a shoot, ok and maybe a little bit of bribing.

    Enjoy my blog and find me on Facebook too.

Kristina & Dan

I had the distinct pleasure of photographing Kristina & Dan’s beautiful wedding at the always gorgeous Meadowbrook.  I was pleasantly surprised by the number of little nephews these two have – all such handsome little guys in their suits – so, so cute!  We made it through the beautiful outdoor ceremony and the rain didn’t come till we started a few photos of the new couple but how romantic does our rain photo look?!  These two have so much family and friends surrounding them and it was a beautiful wedding with lots of celebration all around.  Congratulations!!

Noah & Rachel

There’s nothing I love more than a unique wedding and Rachel and Noah rocked it.  We started out at their house and then moved to downtown Ferndale for some shots of just the two of them.  Loved it.  Both of them were so relaxed and just taking in all the greatness of the beautiful day.  We then walked over to the Local for their ceremony and reception – what a great venue.  We ended the night with an after party at WAB with a great show by Jeecy & the Jungle.  Congratulations you two!!

Talia & Alan

Talia & Alan had a beautiful ceremony and reception at the gorgeous grounds of Weller’s in Saline, MI.  The hospitality house in downtown also provided us with a great space for some getting ready shots of the bridal party.  It was quite an amazing day from the shining sun, to the personal vows, to the touching speeches to the surprise Greek dancing.  Even better? the fact it was Talia’s parent’s 45th anniversary that day!  I also love the photos of Alan dancing with his grandma – everybody should dance with their grandparents at their wedding!  What a wonderful wedding for two people who truly deserve the best.  Congratulations Talia & Alan!

Madhavi & Daniel

There’s nothing more flattering than shooting a wedding and then having a family member call up later and ask you to shoot their wedding.  I met Madhavi’s family and Daniel when they were dating at her sister’s wedding – Malika married Shahram (they are on my website as one of the sample galleries) in a beautiful December ceremony.  These weddings are the ones where I just feel so incredibly lucky to do what I do.  I love this family and Daniel’s family was just as sweet and kind to me too – Grandpa Beyer was a trip.

The wedding day began at beautiful Meadowbrook Hall with an absolutely gorgeous day and magical setting.   They had the traditional Indian ceremony which was full of smiles and colors.  A luncheon followed and then the Catholic ceremony took place at St. Joesph’s Parish in Lake Orion followed by a beautiful reception at Oakhurst Country Club in Clarkston.  It was a 14 hour day but I didn’t even notice – this family means the world to me and Daniel & Madhu, I wish you all the best!  I can’t wait for you to see ALL the images from the big day.  It was impossible to narrow it down so be prepared…
