The Homestead Wedding Photographer | DeAnna & Randy

The Homestead Wedding PhotographerThe Homestead in Glen Arbor, MI is one of my favorite venues, and was the perfect backdrop for DeAnna and Randy’s wedding.  Along with their son, they celebrated the day with family and friends against the gorgeous backdrop of Lake Michigan, only about 25 minutes from Traverse City.  A photographer really couldn’t ask for more.  Check out the photos after the jump. . .

Traverse City Wedding Photographer | Maggie & Robert

Traverse City Wedding Photographer | Maggie & RobertCheers to Maggie and Robert!  Their June wedding was so fun and sweet, just like the couple themselves.  They were married at their family cottage under a lone tree by the beach that was hanging with colorful blown glass globes.  There were so many fun, creative touches- everyone I met was an artist in one way or another!  One of my favorite things- Maggie’s pearl necklace was her grandmother’s. . . she had opened a bank account way back when and that was the gift they were giving out for opening a bank account!  Grandmother’s bank account pearls :)  Maggie’s dress was a vintage find that fit her perfectly and went so well with those pearls.  I could go on, but my job was to take the pictures, so here they are!!

Traverse City Engagement Photography | Sisily & Brian

Traverse City Engagement PhotographySisily contacted me a few weeks ago to see if I was available to shoot her and Brian’s engagement pictures.  They were from Colorado, and getting married in California.  Since Northern Michigan has long been a family vacation destination for Brian, they thought it appropriate to have their engagement pictures taken here!  I suggested Lighthouse Park at the tip of Old Mission Peninsula– one of my favorite spots :)

Traverse City Wedding Photography | Sarah & Sam

3.22.14-93Sarah & Sam’s wedding was a small, intimate affair that was just gorgeous from beginning to end.  The bride wore TWO dresses- one for the ceremony and dinner, then another more casual dress for dancing.  And she looked amazing!  Everything about this wedding was romantic- as you will see from the pictures.  The venue, Visions at Centerpointe, was filled with so much light it was a photographer’s dream, and lends to a very soft, romantic look that I just love.  Definitely one of my favorite weddings of all time!  Take note that since they chose a package with two photographers, we set up a complimentary photo booth and it was a blast!  It’s definitely a fun thing to have set up for your gets during the reception for those who need a break from dancing :) Continue reading »

Leelanau Wedding Photography | Lindsey & Joe

7.7.13-353For Lindsey and Joe’s wedding, we packed a lot into eight hours!  Four locations, to be precise.  Lindsey had her hair and makeup done at Lilyjade Salon at The Homestead in Glen Arbor, MI.  From there we went to the ceremony site- right on Empire Beach!  Lindsey looked so amazingly gorgeous, she turned A LOT of heads :)  After that, we all went to Port Oneida- one of my favorite places in the world!  Port Oneida is part of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, and there are so many beautiful, romantic spots for wedding photography.  So naturally, as the photographer, I was thrilled that we had time for it!  After about 45 minutes or so of portraits, we were off to the reception at Leelanau Cellars in Omena, MI.  It was just the perfect size for an intimate wedding like theirs.

Check out the highlights after the jump! Continue reading »

Sleeping Bear Dunes Wedding Photography | Annalisa & John

traverse city photographers 2Any wedding that incorporates dogs is a win in my book!  I love dogs, so when Annalisa and John introduced me to Charley and Timothy, who came all the way from Minnesota with them for the wedding, I was thrilled.  Annalisa and John got engaged at Good Harbor Beach, so that’s where they got married :)  Part of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, the clouds that day couldn’t detract from the natural beauty of Good Harbor.  It’s a beautiful place to have a wedding.  Enjoy the photographs from this special day!

Traverse City, MI Wedding Photography | Jana & Ben

9.6.12-373-EditI’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love small weddings.  They are just so intimate and romantic.  Jana and Ben’s wedding at The Boathouse on Old Mission Peninsula was no exception.  Check out the canoe- Ben made it!  Yup, made it.  How awesome.  Jana’s fist-pump at the end just sums it up- I’m sure these two have settled into married life quite nicely :)

Torch Lake Wedding Photography | Rebekah & Shawn

7.20.13-503First off, let me start by saying I knew this was going to be a fun wedding when Rebekah sent me her questionnaire filled out with an awesome bright blue glitter pen to compliment the purple paper the questionnaire was printed on.  I don’t get to meet every bride before the wedding since most live so far away, but I knew this was a good sign :)  And boy, was it a good time!  Yeah, we got soaking wet riding the pontoon boats across Torch Lake, but the pictures made it so worth it!  Plus, I had never been to the sandbar before (I know!) and this was a perfect way to experience it.  There was lots of dancing, lots of cupcake-eating, and, of course, lots of love!  What an amazing family.  Enjoy your married life, and all the best to you!

Traverse City Photography | Linnea & Dan

traverse city photographerSince I photograph so many destination weddings each year, one thing I always try to tell brides not familiar with the area is how late the sun sets here!  One of the great things about Northern Michigan is watching a gorgeous sunset over the water.  However, this doesn’t happen until. . . late.  All of the photos below were taken at Traverse City’s West End beach, some at around 10:40 pm.  I really wanted that dramatic, darkened sky.   Linnea and Dan were total sports and patiently waited until the sky was dark enough for the perfect photos.  For the photos that look like they were taken during the day. . . that was about 9:30 pm.  It’s definitely something to consider when planning your wedding photography coverage!
