beach engagement session

MEGAN & EVAN // CHICAGO ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY

 

These two are getting married in Northern Michigan next year, but live in Chicago, so we took advantage of our travel schedule to explore some of their favorite local spots!  We began the session at The Oyster Bah, one of their favorite places to grab drinks and - of course - oysters.  I absolutely loved this, because it's a meaningful location for them and gave us such a unique setting for photos!  Cheers to Megan & Evan - can't wait for next year!!

 

HANNAH & TODD // BEULAH ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY

I am so freakin' excited for these two.  They are so fun to be around, and laughed during their entire session.  Next summer they are getting married at Hannah's family cottage with a beautiful view overlooking Crystal Lake, and the reception will be under the exact same clear tent that Mike and I had at our own wedding a couple weeks ago!  CANNOT WAIT! 

 
 

ALECIA & MICHAEL // TRAVERSE CITY ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY // PREVIEW

The light, the fields, the trees, the beach, the pier, the water, the cute pup and the even cuter couple.  Yup - All the elements came together magically for Alecia and Mike's engagement session.  So happy to be working with these two!  Congrats!

 
 

KERRY & NICK // ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY // ST. JOSEPH, MI.

The Spring vibes were awesome for Kerry and Nick's engagement session in St. Joe's.  We explored some hidden trails and of course spent time on the beach where these two will be getting married in September!

 
 

LINDSEY & DREW // SOUTH HAVEN // BEACH ENGAGEMENT SESSION

Last Friday I woke up to rain.  It has been raining a lot here lately, but this is Michigan, which could mean bright sun 10 minutes later.  The same was true last Friday - so in between some pretty intense downpours, we found a couple hours of absolutely beautiful light for Lindsey and Drew's engagement session in South Haven where they had their first date.
