Summer family portrait in Union Pier, Michigan

I get many inquiries for a summer family portrait in New Buffalo area. The preferred location is the beach. And it is not a surprise; the sandy beaches are beautiful and they are the main reason many families choose to vacation in Southwest Michigan. 
I love the beach as well, but as a photographer I have to say that the beach is a tricky location to take a beautiful portrait. Why tricky? Mainly because of the strong sun that reflects from the water and from the sand and makes everybody squint.

I embrace every opportunity where the client is happy with any location. This young family choose to have the photo shoot around the summer cottage they rented in Union Pier. The photos turned out lovely and the client is pleased with the result.

Lovely family summer beach photos, New Buffalo, MI

Want to share with you a recent family portrait on the beach in New Buffalo, Michigan. I think that the photos turned out lovely; there is some peaceful joy about them.

The beach photos are never the same, because no two days are alike and no two families are alike. Every photo shoot is an original and unique experience, that can not be duplicated.

Shadowland on Silver Beach, Wedding of Jenna & Brian

Jenna and Brian have been vacationing in St. Joseph Michigan for several years and they fell in love with the area. After Brian proposed to Jenna on Silver Beach, their wedding destination have been decided on; the charm and the location of Shadowland on Silver Beach was a perfect match.



The Carousel was fun, made everybody feel like a kid again. Did you notice the cute ring bearers, with their little briefcases to carry the precious cargo? Adorable! And the red shoes? This wedding was colorful and happy, a lovely celebration of family and love.

Intimate lakefront wedding in Michigan :: Katy & Dave

Katy and Dave tied the knot on the shores of Lake Michigan, just a few miles north of Saint Joseph, in Benton Harbor. 
The beaches in this part on Southwest Michigan are spectacular and secluded, perfect for an intimate wedding celebration like this one, with only a few close family members and friends. Even though small, the wedding of Katy and Dave was beautiful and elegant.
The weather was perfect, the view spectacular, the live piano music romantic and the company charming. Everybody had a good time, even Mikey, the flower dog, who enjoyed it very much, especially playing with the bride's shoes on the beach. 
From the little details you can guess that the couple is also in love with France and that's where they are  heading for their honeymoon.
To keep up with the French theme, one of the deserts was French macarons. They looked perfect and tasted as good, if not better than the macarons you get in Paris. All the delicious deserts and the wedding cake were the creation of Bit of Swiss Bakery in Stevensville.  Tim Foley of Bread Bar in Benton Harbor  was invited to be a chef for the event. Every great party has to have a great food and this one was one great party.
