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 beautiful shorelines are the perfect place to make gorgeous memories.
Emma and Joe were married 4 years ago in November, and are just as in love today as they were then. They have two beautiful babies, which is still hard for me to believe because I’ve known Emma for over 13 years. I was in 7th grade when we first met, and she was in 5th grade with my sister. Our families became really good friends because my family had just moved to Michigan from El Salvador and Emma’s family is from Guatemala. We also lived just a couple streets away from each other so Melody (my sister), Emma, and I spend our weekends having sleepovers and watching scary movies.
“When I first started thinking about doing a Northern Michigan beach wedding shoot, I know Emma and Joe would be perfect”
When I first started thinking about doing a Northern Michigan beach wedding shoot, I know Emma and Joe would be the perfect couple. Emma agreed right away when I asked her and since Joe is a gem and would do anything to make Emma happy, he agreed too. They were both excited to have more pictures together as a couple and to celebrate the love that is the core and foundation of the beautiful life they’ve built together since they were married.
As a Traverse City and Northern Michigan wedding photographer and videographer, I love weddings. I love couples. And I love celebrating and capturing the love that you share. Whether you’re looking for someone to capture your wedding, you’re wanting to elope or you’re having a vow renewal to celebrate a wedding anniversary, I’m your gal! I specialize in romantic, timeless portraits that showcase what matters most. You!
“I believe in a hopelessly romantic kind of love that focuses on the little moments along with the big, grand ones.”
Something that I tell all my brides is that I believe in love! And I believe in a hopelessly romantic kind of love that focuses on the little moments along with the big, grand ones. I believe that you find love in the little looks, a squeeze of a hand, a touch on the small of your back. It’s in dressing up together to celebrate a big moment or in curling up on the couch together in your pajamas, a bowl of popcorn, and having a movie marathon or watching your favorite TV show for the 10th time. Because the thing is, that life isn’t made up of just the big moments. All the little things are the big things. And the truth is, I believe there are no ordinary moments. Only millions of tiny un-ordinary ones that make up a whole life together.
Emma and Joe, thanks for letting me a part of just some of the moments that make up your love story together. May you have a million more beautiful moments during your time together in this life.
