THIS SESSION Y’ALL.

It was my last one of 2019, and Brody and Gen absolutely crushed it. We had unseasonably warm weather and took advantage of it at North Avenue Beach. Brody is from the burbs and Gen is from Kalamazoo; they currently live in Memphis, and neither of them have seen the skyline in person from this view. The light was maaaagical, and I had a blast getting to know these two kind humans as we snapped their photos. I might be a little bias (or just delirious from a long month), but these may be some of my favorites from this year. I cannot wait to shoot their wedding in Michigan next year.

I asked Brody to whisper in Gen’s ear something he was excited about for the wedding. She needed a second to compose herself after and it was the sweetest thing.

2019 ended with a great personal loss, and it has been hard to continue on with running my business these last few weeks, but I am grateful for clients who have shown me so much love and patience as I’ve rescheduled, pushed back deadlines, and tried to regain my bearings. Here’s to a new decade and new adventures in 2020.

BEHIND THE LENS

hi, i'm ARIELLE.

You can usually find me home with my golden retriever or day dreaming of my next trip to Italy.

I am a firm believer in living life with purpose and never missing the opportunity to experience something new. The Meyers-Briggs test says I am an ESFJ, and my friends say I am the person they come to when they need comfort, advice, or fresh baked goods. I consider myself an empath, so special moments you share with your loved ones will likely get me all teary eyed and sentimental. I am not here to pretend life is picture perfect, but to capture genuine emotion and create timeless pieces of art to decorate your home. I’m constantly striving for perfection, but have a calming personality and am relatively easy going. 

When the camera is not around my neck, I am a big home body. I love hanging on the couch with my dog, making pasta, breads and desserts from scratch, squatting 400+ pounds in the gym, or plotting my next trip outside of the US. As a direct descendant of Italian immigrants, I feel most at home in Italy (and speak a bit of Italian, too.)

travel

Arielle has photographed over 150 weddings across 12 states, 5 countries, and 3 continents. While her heart beats for coastal and countryside Italian weddings, she is willing to travel anywhere and everywhere to document your day.
