The weekend of Gabrielle & Trenton’s rainy Traverse City wedding was an interesting one for pretty much every wedding vendor and couple who had a wedding scheduled here in Northern Michigan. The forecast leading up to Saturday was not great. It was calling for rain from basically 9 am until sometime on Sunday. Exactly what […]

Ally & Logan were married in a gorgeous, intimate Mackinac Island wedding. We really couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful, sunny day for them to tie the knot! Both Logan and Ally are beautiful, quiet souls. They don’t love being the center of attention, so their intimate wedding with their closest friends and family […]

Wedding Videography

Maddie & Sam’s beautiful Bay Harbor wedding happened on an absolutely perfect Michigan summer day. The only tiny hiccup was a quick summer shower that rolled in at the end of our bride & groom portraits that had us running for cover! Thankfully I had my car nearby and we all huddled into my Tahoe. […]

Savannah & Landon’s Nature Michigan wedding here in gorgeous Northern Michigan was the stuff Michigan wedding dreams are made of. We had a gorgeous sunny (and surprisingly hot) June day. Not a cloud in sight, just gorgeous sunshine and lots of love! But better than the gorgeous weather and all the beautiful details was how […]

Christine & Joshua celebrated their gorgeous┬áChateau Chantal wedding on Old Mission Peninsula in what turned out to be a perfect Michigan summer day.

Phi & Trent: An Elegant Grand Rapids Wedding | City Flats Hotel

Wedding Photography, Wedding Videography

  I got to kick off my wedding season for 2021 with Phi & Trent’s elegant Grand Rapids wedding. Phi & Trent were supposed to get married last May at CityFlats Hotel, but they had to cancel their plans when Covid hit. Instead, they had a small ceremony just the two of them and decided […]

If there’s one thing that everyone looks forward to in Traverse City after a long winter, it’s the arrival of Spring. And Spring brings the gorgeous cherry blossoms that we’re so famous for! If you’re ever in Traverse City in the Spring, make sure to drive up the peninsulas and you’ll be rewarded with a […]

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 […]
