Bethanie & Brandon: River Edge Wedding | Lowell, Michigan

Wedding Photography

  Bethanie & Brandon’s late summer, River Edge wedding day in the Grand Rapids area was a perfect sunny day after a string of rainy, fall-ish days. We got to enjoy the last of 2019’s gorgeous, Michigan summer as we celebrated their River Edge wedding day ❤️ Both Bethanie and Brandon are so sweet, and […]

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 […]

Carolyn & Kyle: A Hidden Vineyard Wedding Barn Summer Wedding

Wedding Photography

Carolyn and Kyle’s Hidden Vineyard Wedding Barn summer wedding was this past weekend, and may just be one of my favorite weddings this year so far. I’m still not sure I completely have the words for how beautiful their day was. But I’ll try, lol! A Grey and Blush Hidden Vineyard Wedding Barn Summer Wedding […]

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 […]

Tori & Austen: A Spring Castle Farms Wedding | Charlevoix, MI

Wedding Photography

I’ve been so excited for Tori and Austen’s Spring Castle Farms wedding since the first email that Tori sent me asking if I was available on their wedding date. One, because I’m always beyond excited to photograph or film a Castle Farms wedding since it’s where Zachary and I got married ourselves (This gorgeous Charlevoix […]

A Castle Farms Game of Thrones Wedding | Charlevoix, MI

Wedding Photography

If you’ve read through my blog before, you know that I LOVE a Castle Farms Wedding! One, because Castle Farms was our wedding venue when Zach and I got married, and two, well I mean…have you seen the venue? I feel like Castle Farms is this hidden treasure gem that we have here in Northern Michigan. […]

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 […]

Emma + Joe: Northern Michigan Beach Wedding | Traverse City, Michigan

Wedding Photography

If there’s one thing that you can’t go wrong with in our beautiful State of Michigan, it’s a Northern Michigan beach wedding. With over 3,000 miles of coastline, there’s no shortage of locations to choose from. Whether you want a friends and family wedding or an intimate elopement for just the two of you, our […]

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 […]
