Engagements, Photography

Marissa and Alex’s cloudy engagement photos are a perfect example why you shouldn’t worry about rainy or cloudy days messing up your photography. Their session happened to take place at my favorite spot for engagement sessions, the Mission Point Lighthouse beach! This is a historic area with woods, an amazing lighthouse, and a beautiful beach.

Emily & Jake: Harbor Springs Engagement Session | Northern Michigan

Engagements

Emily and Jake’s Harbor Springs Engagement Session here in gorgeous Northern Michigan was the perfect kickoff for my 2022 wedding season. We got our first gorgeous sunny day of the spring in honor of their session gosh what better place to spend it than the beach? When Emily and I started chatting about locations for […]

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: Sleeping Bear Dunes Engagement Session | Peterson Beach

Engagements

I got to kick off my 4th of July weekend with Katie & John’s gorgeous Peterson Beach Sleeping Bear Dunes engagement session and gosh was it beautiful. I’d actually never been out to Peterson Beach Recreation Area, but I love exploring new places with my sweet couples. And I’m especially always down to explore the […]

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 […]
