We adored Rob & Kaity from the moment we got to know them during their engagement session last year. We knew that their wedding was going to be wonderful, but we were blown away by just how incredible. Rob & his groomsmen got ready at their home in Escanaba, of course their dog was in many of the photos. Kaity & her bridesmaid got ready at the Terrace Inn and we are so thankful she trusted us enough to get dressed outside. Afterwards it was off to All Saints Church in Gladstone for their lovely catholic ceremony. Their colors of blush and grey really popped against the white and red of the church. Once they were pronounced husband and wife we took them outside for photos. It was quite chilly that day, but the entire bridal party toughed it out for photos. We quickly got them through the photos so they could warm up with a drink at the Sand Bar before heading to the reception. Their wedding reception was at the Gladstone Ski Hill and we honestly couldn’t believe the amount of d.i.y. touches every where! They had a donut cake, a build your own sangria bar, jenga sign in blocks, and so much more. The entire day was amazing, but that was definitely a treat to photograph. Around sunset we took the newlyweds atop the hill for a few photos in the dreamy, golden light and oh my goodness it was gorgeous. Congrats again to Mr. & Mrs. Caliguri and thanks again for all the fun! Enjoy!

The little flower girl hiked her dressed up so she wouldn’t trip, but I don’t think she realized her undies were hanging out. haha.

The children kept sneaking up to the donut cake, taking a few bites of the donuts, and then put them right back on the table. lol

Sunset photos during a wedding reception are always some of favorites. It’s a moment alone for the bride & groom and the lighting is always heavenly!

We loved traveling out to a lakeside cabin in Negaunee for this family session. We drove and drove out to the furthest cabin along the way, but once we arrived it was easy to see why they wanted us to join them there. The sun was setting and the water sparkled, it was perfection for this family session! We loved getting a mix of traditional family photos, mixed in with ones that truly captured the children’s personality! The children especially loved getting treated to ice cream and popsicles with Grandpa at the end! Who wouldn’t love that after all. Enjoy! Negaunee Family Photos_0001Negaunee Family Photos_0002Negaunee Family Photos_0003Negaunee Family Photos_0004Negaunee Family Photos_0005Negaunee Family Photos_0006Negaunee Family Photos_0008Negaunee Family Photos_0007Negaunee Family Photos_0009Negaunee Family Photos_0010Negaunee Family Photos_0011Negaunee Family Photos_0012Negaunee Family Photos_0013Negaunee Family Photos_0014Negaunee Family Photos_0015Negaunee Family Photos_0016Negaunee Family Photos_0017Negaunee Family Photos_0018Negaunee Family Photos_0019Negaunee Family Photos_0020Negaunee Family Photos_0021Negaunee Family Photos_0022Negaunee Family Photos_0023

Angela & Jason’s engagement session was adventurous, beautiful, and full of desert goodness! During a recent destination wedding in Las Vegas we had a free day to be able to photograph Angela & Jason in an amazing ghost town nearby. When arriving at the ghost town we were warned to watch out for rattlesnakes and be careful around the cactus, needless to say every turn was taken with caution. The light in the desert is something we always look forward to, it’s warmth and pink hues make for the perfect addition to any photo shoot. Angela & Jason were fantastic to photograph, their love for each other shined during the session. From walking along the town to cuddling up in a barn, we can’t thank Angela & Jason enough for all the fun! We are also happy to not encounter any rattlesnakes or cacti during  the session, haha. Enjoy!

We’ve already had great deal happen this year between us preparing to move to Traverse City and a jam packed wedding session. During one of the many road trips to a recent wedding Alex mentioned, “Did you know that all big things in our relationship happen every 6 years?”

I thought about it for a moment and he is totally right. Our first big moment was 6 years into our relationship when we say I DO during our intimate wedding ceremony on Mackinac Island. Our next big moment is this year, as we celebrate our 6 years of marriage (12 years of being together) we are happy to also announce that we are HAVING A BABY!

It’s hard to believe still, but it’s really happening! Our little baby bird will be making its way into the world as of December this year. This perfectly works out with the weddings we have schedule, but we also hired a couple amazing assistants on to help out.

We are excited to start nesting once we move to Traverse City this fall and will keep you updated as we get further along. Who knows what the next big thing in 6 years is going to be, until then we will soak up every moment of this year!

P.S. Huge thank you to Emma at -et images for the beautiful photos! We truly appreciate it!

Sara & Ryan’s engagement session was a dream to photograph; fantastic couple, great locations, and perfectly coordinate outfits! We met up with them near their cabin on Highway 13. The green trees had the most beautiful canopy of light coming through and was worth all the bug bites during our short time there. Next it was off to their cabin along the lake with their dog Doopy. We were graced with the perfect overcast skies for their lakeside session! We could have photographed along the shores all day long, but Sara & Ryan brought us to a couple other fantastic locations nearby. We can’t thank Sara & Ryan enough for this session, we laughed out loud and captured some of the most breathtaking engagement pictures thanks to them! We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
