THE GRAJQEVCI FAMILY // FALL FAMILY PORTRAITS AT BROWN BRIDGE QUIET AREA

 

I first met the amazing Grajqevci family two years ago when we did a summer session in Charlevoix.  Fast forward to a few days ago... we met up again for an adventurous hike at Brown Bridge Quiet Area - one of my very favorite places in the Grand Traverse region.  It also happens to be kind of a hidden gem.  Bailey and Visar (along with their two adorable kiddos) have started the Instagram account The Family Travels.  This year they are collaborating with a number of photographers around the state of Michigan and I feel so lucky that they asked me to be a part of their project.  Follow along to keep up with their adventures!  And hopefully this won't be the last time you see them here either ;)

 

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!
