Chelsea & Kevin: A Traverse City Sunrise Engagement Session | Old Mission Peninsula

Engagements

There are only 2 reasons you’ll ever find me up before the sun…#1 is for travel (worth it if you’re heading someplace amazing!) and #2 is for my gorgeous clients ❤️ This was actually my first sunrise session ever (I am not a morning person lol) but when Chelsea asked me if I’d consider doing […]

Jolie & Griffin: Grand Traverse Bay Engagement Session

Engagements

I’ve been so excited about Jolie and Griffin’s wedding next August since we first chatted back in February about me being their photographer. They’re getting married at Jolie’s family’s home here in Traverse City, and if you didn’t know this I love, love, love backyard weddings! Maybe it’s just the sentimental side of me, but […]

Carolyn + Kyle: Michigan State University Engagement Session

Engagements

When Carolyn and Kyle decided that they wanted to do a Michigan State University engagement session, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I’d never been on the MSU campus before, but oh-my-goodness was I surprised! The campus is absolutely beautiful, and there are so many great spots for photos! Carolyn and Kyle are both […]

Traverse City Engagement Photography | Old Mission Peninsula

Engagements

One of my favorite things to do since Zach and I moved to Traverse City, Michigan has been to explore the gorgeous nature that surrounds this beautiful part of our state. Being able to use my Traverse City engagement photography to do that is just one of the many perks that come along with being […]

Kristen + Ryan: Downtown Traverse City Engagement Session | Northern Michigan Photographer

Engagements

Kristen and Ryan’s downtown Traverse City Engagement Session was so much fun to shoot. It doesn’t really look like it in their pictures, but it was freezing the day we did their engagement session. We even got a little bit of snow towards the end of their session. They were troopers through (see what I did […]

Valerie + CJ: Covered Bridge Farm | Three Rivers, Mi

Engagements

  Valerie & CJ’s anniversary session at Covered Bridge Farm (check out their website here) is what photographer dreams are made of. These two are such a sweet couple and I’m always honored when a fellow photographer trusts me with their special memories. Valerie is an up and coming Indiana wedding photographer whose journey is […]

Stacie + Michael: A Traverse City Engagement | Michigan Photographer

Engagements

Stacie & Michael are the cutest couple from Ohio who’ve decided to get married in our beautiful Traverse City. I don’t blame them, Northern Michigan and Traverse City are a fantastic place for a destination wedding. I got married myself in Northern Michigan. Their Traverse City engagement was so much fun to shoot and I […]

Amber + Tyler: Colorado Engagement Session | Red Rock Lake

Engagements

The air was crisp and cold, shimmering over the frozen Red Rock Lake during this gorgeous Colorado engagement session. Tyler smiled down at Amber before glancing over at me. “She has the most beautiful eyes, doesn’t she?”, he said as he pulled her in to kiss her forehead. (Queue all the heart eyes!) These two […]

Kendall + Danny: Elizabeth Park Engagement | Detroit, MI

Engagements

I can’t get enough of this gorgeous fall weather we’ve been having. It was perfect yesterday for Kendall and Danny’s Elizabeth Park engagement session. They rocked their photos and I’m so excited to shoot their wedding next year. Check out their engagement photos below: Where to next? Gabby & Charles’ Country Mill Engagement Joe & […]

Gabby + Charles: A Country Mill Engagement Session

Engagements

There’s nothing quite like a Michigan apple orchard in the fall. So when Gabby said she was up for doing Country Mill engagement photos at their wedding venue (the Country Mill in Charlotte, Michigan), I got really excited. One, it’s always great to scope out a venue before the day of the wedding, and two, […]
