Michaela has always had a passion for interior design, as she grew up building floor plans out of jenga blocks, spanning the entire width of her bedroom. As a creative little girl, she was always looking for her next design project, enjoyed helping her mom in the garden, and making a mess in the kitchen with her latest baking recipe. Her passion for design has truly always been apart of her life. Michaela graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in interior design from Seattle Pacific University and an AA degree in interior design from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. She has been authoring her design and lifestyle blog since Fall of 2010 and launched her own interior design business upon graduating, where she enjoys serving people and families by creating homes they love. Michaela is a California girl at heart who followed love to Michigan, eagerly awaiting her September 2016 wedding.
Ashley has always loved telling stories. When she was younger, she was constantly busy crafting tales inspiring and evoking emotion. When she discovered photography, she learned how to tell stories in a whole new way; an incredibly beautiful way. This interest in photography was sparked in 2010 while traveling coast to coast (and everywhere in between) with her husband. Four years later, Ashley specializes in weddings, couples, and lifestyle photography with an emphasis on natural lighting and film. Ashley lives alongside her husband, two baby boys and yorkiepoo in Kalamazoo, Michigan, where she photographs beautiful details and eats an exorbitant amount of sushi. Hailing from Georgia, Ashley has a love of all things southern, including grand front porches, sweet tea and Alabama football.
