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.

Cathy & Chris

Cathy & Chris had a beautiful November wedding which I was so happy to be the one to document.  After our getting ready shots, we headed to Detroit for a ceremony in a church, Sweetest Heart of Mary Catholic Church, that seemed to be right out of a movie.  I couldn’t help but snap a few shots of the little girls all dressed up and watching in awe of the beautiful bride at the ceremony.  The group then headed to some Detroit hotspots for some photos before heading on to the reception.  I loved that they had a caricature artist for the guests, how unique!  And the performance by Cathy’s father’s friends was fabulous too!  It was a magical day and I’m so happy for you guys, Cathy & Chris!

Awesome! Such a fun day. Great captures!

Travis & Mackenzie

Travis and Mackenzie had a beautiful wedding at Knollwood Country Club and went with a vintage themed wedding that was spectacular.  The rooms overflowed with flowers, the amount of desserts was a dream and I was stunned by the transformation of the dance floor ceiling.  Truly a magical day for these two and all their loved ones.  Congratulations Travis & Mackenzie!

Kacy & Matt

I had only met Kacy & Matt via Facetime prior to their wedding but at the end of the day, I felt like I knew both of them and their families so well.  I just adored all the love, enthusiasm and dancing that surrounded these two newlyweds.  This was the first Chaldean wedding I’ve photographed and it was so amazing.  Kacy and Matt encountered a slight hiccup early in the day when their party bus literally caught on fire and the engine was smoking so much you couldn’t see 1 foot in front of you but it didn’t phase them at all and I just truly love a couple that can brush off the unexpected and focus on the joy of the day.  Congratulations Matt & Kacy!
