Over the past few years, I have had many opportunities to photograph in Traverse City, Michigan. Every time, I fall more in love with this beautiful place and the breathtaking views it has to offer a wedding day.

Rachel and Ryan’s wedding was no exception. These two had the most serene ceremony on the perfect fall day. To me, the best part was that they weren't trying to make something of their day that it wasn’t. They let me capture them; THEIR love. And what came of it? One of my favorite weddings to date. They trusted in me completely, and for that, I am so grateful.

Years down the road, I know they will look back at these and be able to remember the feeling they had on their special day, and that is all I really wish to capture. These two gave me complete and total creative freedom, and that is something I cherish so much. Wishing you all the happiness in your new life as one.
