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.
Looking through this Senior session puts a Kid Rock song into my head, “All Summer Long.” Summertime in Northern Michigan just can’t be beat. This beauty Amy and her family comes to Michigan from Texas every summer on vacation. They contacted me to photograph Amy in some of their favorite Boyne City locations. The willow tree in the park, the Boyne River, behind the old movie theater and every place in between. There’s nothing like a perfectly golden lit evening in July… hanging out and meeting new people. It’s so fun getting to know my clients.
Every year I get to photograph the Dixon family in a new place… and in a different season. For YEARS we have tried to make our schedules align and the weather cooperate so we could shoot their family session at Lavender Hill Farms in Boyne City. Sometimes I think the universe has a funny way of just working out because this session was done exactly when it was supposed to be. The girls are getting older now and their personalities are so different. I have had the opportunity to watch them grow in front of my camera from the start. This summer Jenna told me that Gwen wanted a camera for her Birthday. She asked me some tips and they brought it along to their family shoot. It fills my heart to know I have made an impact on a young lady. I’m excited to see where our next session/adventure together will take us.
