Gabriella & Matthew: A Rainy Fall Engagement Session | Charlevoix, Michigan

Engagements

Gabriella and Matthew are seriously the sweetest (and the cutest). We had some crazy rain here in Northern Michigan the weekend that they scheduled their engagement session, but they wanted to carry on and just roll with it. And honestly, what’s more fun than playing in the rain sometimes? They absolutely rocked their rainy fall […]

Morgan & Tyler: M22 Fall Engagement Session | Northern Michigan

Engagements

For anyone who’s not familiar with fall in Northern Michigan, there’s really nothing quite like it. I got to hang out with Morgan & Tyler a few weeks ago for their gorgeous Michigan M22 fall engagement session. We’d actually originally planned to meet at the beach because the trail leading up to the beach is […]

Katie & John: Crooked Creek Ranch Wedding | Cedar, Michigan

Wedding Photography

Katie & John got married this fall here in Northern Michigan, and we got a gorgeous, sunny (albeit slightly chilly), very perfect day for their Crooked Creek Ranch wedding. These two are the absolute sweetest, and to make everything better they brought along their two adorable pups to share their wedding day with them 😍. […]

Alex & Joey: The Pidge Inn Wedding Video | Muskegon, Michigan

Wedding Videography

Alex and Joey were originally supposed to get married in May of this year, but, because we were in the thick of Covid, they had to reschedule their wedding to this fall. Instead, they chose to have an intimate wedding on Lake Michigan with their closest friends and family. It ended up being the most […]

Amanda & Jasper: Intimate Northern Michigan Wedding | Harbor Springs, Michigan

Wedding Photography, Wedding Videography

Amanda & Jasper got married in the sweetest, intimate Northern Michigan wedding with their closest friends and family members. Going into their wedding weekend, the forecast pretty much showed a 100% chance of rain all day, and it definitely looked like Michigan was going to actually follow through this time. Jasper and Mandy were such […]

Brooke & Austin: A Knight’s Castle Summer Wedding | Castle Farms | Charlevoix, MI

Wedding Videography

Brooke and Austin got married in late August at a gorgeous Knight’s Castle summer wedding at Castle Farms in Charlevoix. We had a few little sprinkles throughout the day (it really looked like their ceremony would be a rainy one – the skies cleared up though right before Brooke walked down the aisle. Perfect timing!). […]

Mackenzie & Grant: A Michigan Summer Backyard Wedding | Saginaw, Michigan

Wedding Photography, Wedding Videography

Mackenzie and Grant got married in August in the most gorgeous Michigan summer backyard wedding. Their entire day was a complete 180 from what they had originally planned, but through all the craziness and re-planning, these two took everything in stride and their day was absolutely breathtaking! I mean really…how stunning of a bride was Mackenzie? […]

Jolie & Griffin: A Grand Traverse Bay Wedding

Wedding Photography

Jolie & Griffin got married in August in the most adorable and intimate, backyard, Grand Traverse Bay wedding. I’m still so obsessed with all of the gorgeous details that they put together for this stunning day. So many amazing vendors came together to make this day absolutely amazing for this sweet couple. Of course, typical […]

Jackie & Matt: A Stafford’s Perry Hotel Intimate Wedding | Petoskey, Michigan

Wedding Videography

Jackie & Matt got married in a gorgeous Stafford’s Perry Hotel intimate wedding celebration with their closest friends and family members here in beautiful Petoskey, Michigan. With everything going on, they ended up rescheduling their reception to next summer, but that didn’t stop them from enjoying every moment of their gorgeous, August, summer day! These […]

Emily & Collin: A Summer Backyard Wedding | Middlebury, IN

Wedding Photography, Wedding Videography

Emily and Collin were married on the first weekend of August in a gorgeous summer backyard wedding, and I’m still a little teary-eyed over how gorgeous and emotional their wedding day was. I don’t think anything about their wedding day was what they had originally imagined. They were originally supposed to get married here in […]
