McKenna’s senior portrait session was like a modeling shoot. She had planned to come to Northern Michigan to be photographed but the weather didn’t cooperate. It just so happened I was traveling to Grand Rapids so it worked perfectly to do her shoot downtown… even though it was a very chilly fall day. You have never known the temperature was cold but these images because she hit it out of the park. I am obsessed with street art and the bright colors make my heart SO HAPPY. McKenna was so fun to work with and I enjoyed getting to know he and her mom, Kristin. I have been taking her Aunt Leslie’s family photos for yearssss…. and she gave them a referral. I am super glad she did!

Lucy is a little ray of sunshine and I have adored taking her photos the last couple years. So over the summer Jessie planned a couple different dates and we got rained out both times. Finally we saw the first week of September the weather was going to be warm and sunny and we actually got to do their family session. We met at Glenwood Beach in Boyne City and everything went perfectly.
Jenny and Jordan’s wedding was held at the romantic Castle Farms in Charlevoix, Michigan. Their afternoon ceremony took place in the Knights Courtyard and reception following in the East Garden Room which features an enclosed patio with separate bar area… and the ceiling has been newly remodeled with added lighting. It is so refreshed and I love it.
I remember so vividly when this beautiful couple called to book their wedding date with me. I got to talk with them both and heard the excitement in their voices. Not until much later in another phone conversation I learned they booked me literally right after they got engaged. I enjoyed getting to know them throughout their planning and was grateful to have been chosen to photograph their amazing wedding.
This BIG day was a destination wedding for most including the couple who call Florida their home. Their family and friends came from all over the place to celebrate Jenny and Jordan love. I’ll never forget Jenny’s warm smile and the way she got a sparkle in her eye when looking at her groom…. and also Jordan’s authentic laugh and how much love poured out of him for his bride. I think purple is my new favorite color to photograph at the Castle. It pops so well off the stone and greenery!
My favorite moment overall was during the shoe game. DJ Mikey started out by telling the guests that some of the questions were a first time for him and was anxious to know the answers. I seriously laughed so hard I tears coming out of my eyes. Everyone in the building was right their with me giggling hard.
