Family Photography Michigan

This is a long-time family photography relationship over a course of 8 years.  I have watched this family grow together.  They have asked me to come out every two years for Family Photography Michigan.

If you have a summer vacation home that your family visits, why not have a family photography session.  Everyone is relaxed and the images look gorgeous.

The Family Photography Michigan session lasts about one hour and can be in your location of choice.

Couple the session with an anniversary, birthday, or another event to make it even more special.

My clients ask me what they should wear for the Family Photography Michigan session.  My suggestion is to wear what makes you feel amazing.  Just make sure that you don’t clash with your individual family groups.  I can always separate colors which clash.

Some of the family ideas that I have photographed in the past include boating, waterfront, Mackinac Island, rental homes, beach house, in the forest, spring flowers, playground, downtown, farm, and lots more.

My demeanor is extremely relaxed.  I know that my clients are stressed out about getting wonderful images.  I will make sure to help you feel your best.

Here is a small selection of images from the family photography session.

Castle Farms Wedding Photography Charlevoix Michigan

Susan and Drew are a perfect couple.  Their intimate wedding at the Knights Courtyard and Knights Castle was amazing.  Susan did most of the planning for the Castle Farms Wedding Photography Charlevoix Michigan wedding.

The day was windy with overcast.  The rains held off for most of the day.  It felt a lot like a normal fall day in Northern Michigan.  The texture of the clouds really added to the beauty of the day.

The Knights Castle and Courtyard at Castle Farms are my favorite locations.  It is away from the other ceremony and reception locations so it is very private.  Th

Susan looked gorgeous in her Wedding dress.

From our chats prior to the Wedding, I knew that this was not going to be a normal Wedding.  They wanted it to be more of a party with friends with a little time for images.  The Bride loved images and the Groom wanted to be with friends and relax.

There were only a few vendors for the Wedding which include: Castle Farms with Autumn coordinating, Grey Gables catering, Rusch Entertainment, and Paul Retherford Photography.

Susan purchased the flowers from Costco and put the bouquets together herself.

Two highlights from the day included Susan’s brother, Phillip, singing before the ceremony and during the Bride walking down the aisle, and Drew singing a few songs during the Wedding reception.

Enjoy a few gorgeous images from Susan and Drew’s Castle Farms Wedding.
