Grayling Michigan Engagement Photographer

HOLLY & COLLIN WINTER ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY // GRAYLING, MICHIGAN

 

Holly’s family owns the cottage next to my grandma’s in Grayling. It was a Danish American community who initially settled and built these summer cottages on Lake Margrethe and the prized feature of Danish Landing is the red and white gazebo. I’ve always loved the gazebo for sentimental, nostalgic reasons, but I’ve never photographed a couple in front of it. So of course when Holly suggested taking photos over at the landing, I was super excited. On top of that, Holly and Collin brought their pets Up North so that they could also be included in the session! So another photography-first occurred for me when I was able to include a cat in engagement photos! We didn’t keep sweet Lacey outside for too long, but I think we got a few real gems. A++ to Holly and Collin for being so fun, and goofy, and braving the cold with me. I’m just feeling super grateful for the coolest people I get to work with!

 

MATT & KRISTY // GRAYLING WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

 

It's no secret that we love Grayling.  Michael and I got married at my mom and dad's house in Grayling, and for us it has become a place where we relax and spend time together with family.  I have known Matt for probably 13+ years now (!!!).  Getting to know Kristy, getting to take their engagement photos, and then being able to document their wedding was so awesome.  We felt SO incredibly appreciated by their families.  I am so grateful for clients like these guys.  What an amazing way to kick off our 2017 wedding season!  Cheers to the Swopes!

I think photos of Kristy and Matt together would be bright and happy no matter what the weather, but last week we really lucked out with a warm sunny day... and in case you didn't notice... it's November.  Not typically a notorious month for sunshine in Michigan.  I'm so filled with happiness for these two and can't wait to photograph their wedding next year!  Thanks for making my job so fun you guys :)
