New Engagement Photos

We have been busy taking a lot of engagement photos this spring. It is always nice to spend time initially with our couples in a relaxed atmosphere. This gives everyone a chance to get to know each other little bit better.

We just beat the rain showers at the TC marina when we took Laura and Luke's photos. This is one of our favorite spots when the weather cooperates because of the variety of scenery.

Laura and Luke are getting married at the Grand Traverse Resort in Septemember.

Kimberly and Ryan are getting married in August at the beautiful Guardian Angels Catholic church in Manistee.

Renee and Mike have a beach wedding planned in July in Traverse City.

Memorial Weekend at the Castle

It was a cool but gorgeous spring day at Charlevoix's Castle Farms for Carrie and Rudi's wedding.

With the guests assembled in the Queens courtyard, the bride made her grand entrance by horse drawn carriage. After a lovely ceremony the bride and groom rode off to enjoy a few minutes alone together.

Later the couple joined their guests in Queens Travern tent for an evening of celebration.

Congratulations to Carrie & Rudi

Memorial Day Weekend

Erin described this part of northern Michigan as one of her favorite places on earth. So it was only fitting that Erin and John decided to make their wedding reflect their love for the great outdoors.

Frog Pond Village in Interlochen with its unique woodland setting was the perfect choice for the couple.

The couple exchanged vows in the Bull Frog open air chapel. Before the reception, guests enjoyed hors d'oeuvres and the woodland setting that includes ponds, flowers and the scent of the pines.

Our best to Erin and John.

It always happens this way!!

On Saturday May 17th we traveled to the Charlevoix for a Betsy and Jonah's wedding at the charming Belvedere Club.

Our couple had planned a beatuful spring time wedding in Norhtern Michigan, but alas, an hour before the start of the wedding, it was pouring rain. Our bride, however, was taking it all in stride as it was going to take more than a little rain to ruin her special day.

The pink umbrellas were perfect and useful props for the all the ladies. And, as it always seem to happen, we finish taking photos on our dry porch, the sky began to lighten, the clouds parted and blue sky appreared on the horizon. Volunteers were rounded up and the towel brigade went to work, chairs were dryed and guests were seated.

As our lovely bride walked down the isle she did it in sunshine and admiring gaze of her husband to be.
