Katelyn and Steven were married in beautiful Petoskey, MI last month and it was my great honor to capture their special day. If you’ve never been to Petoskey, it is one of my favorite spots in MI. It has a nostalgic feel with it’s old downtown, variety of delicious restaurant options, shopping, and lake life all wrapped up into one. So, when I received and email for this wedding, I was elated. Capturing love in this part of the mitten is not too difficult.
We began the day at the Inn at Bay Harbor where all the girls got ready for they day. I love having time to photograph these “getting ready” moments. There is just something special about this process. All the smiles and anticipation, finally getting to put on the dress and carefully chosen jewelry, Dad seeing his girl for the first time, mom beaming at the site of the woman she has raised and simply capturing a bride surrounded by her closest friends as she soon will be handed off to the man she loves. It’s all beautiful! As I spent time with the girls, my friend and talented wedding photographer who second shot with me for the day, Traci, photographed the guys. We met up soon though, as the bride and groom opted for a “first look” on their wedding day.
After the ceremony, at the St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Charlevoix we came back to the Yacht Club where all of the celebrating continued. This venue was breathtaking with a weather forecast to match. They really couldn’t have asked for anything better, as you will see when you get to the sunset pictures over the water. I didn’t know what to do with myself with all of that beauty. I was thankful. Steven and Katelyn were a breeze to work with as their love for each other and family shined the whole day through.

Thank you, Katelyn and Steven for choosing me to photograph such an important day. It was an honor. I pray that God continues to richly bless you for many years to come.
All the best,
