Grand Traverse Bay

JAMIE & JOE // DOWNTOWN TRAVERSE CITY // WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

 

Exploring the Grand Traverse Commons, riding a trolley down Front St. honking and waving at all the pedestrians, finding the most beautiful flowering plants in the park, stopping at Brady's bar for beers and a game of pool, watching the sunset over the bay from the docks at the open space... that seems like too much to fit into a regular day, but Jamie and Joe arranged their day perfectly to fit those iconic TC experiences and much more into their wedding day.  What a day it was!

ANNA & JEREMY // TRAVERSE CITY WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHY

 

THESE TWO.  Just so much energy, excitement, joy.  As with most video blog posts, I'll let the film tell the story.  It will do a way better job than I could put into words.  Cheers to Anna & Jeremy!

 

STEPHANIE & JAKE // TRAVERSE CITY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

 

Mike always jokes about how I tear up at every wedding.  It might be during the ceremony, or maybe during a toast, and if none of that gets me then it will definitely happen when I see a cute older couple on the dance floor.  I can't help it.  Saturday was no exception.  I don't think I've been to a single wedding - whether there are 30 people or 300 - where the realization of how important the day is doesn't hit me in a big way.  I'm telling you - I get all the feels people! I'm so grateful that Stephanie and Jake chose us to document their wedding day, and what a happy day it was.

LINDSAY & RYAN // WEDDING VIDEO PREVIEW // TRAVERSE CITY

Lindsay and Ryan were married on a gorgeous sunny day, at Ciccone Vineyard & Winery.  The party followed them to the Hagerty Center, for an awesome celebration that lasted late into the night overlooking the lights on Grand Traverse Bay.  The video will do a much better job of showing off this stunning wedding, so I will let it speak for itself!

 
 

Shout out to Allison and the Events North team - thank you!  And it was a pleasure working alongside Jamie & Sarah.

MELISSA & ANDREW // TRAVERSE CITY ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY

Melissa is currently living in Ann Arbor, and Andrew lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  We had a short window of opportunity to take engagement photos, and the Michigan weather we've been having was making me nervous!  Luckily we found a perfect break from the rain for some great fall photos, and the overcast skies created some beautiful soft light at the end of the day by Grand Traverse Bay.  I'm so happy these two decided to come to Northern Michigan for a long weekend, and I'm looking forward to their fall wedding next year!
