Brad and Kelsey hired me to capture their wedding next year in Gaylord. Before that day comes, they had me meet them to capture some engagement photos in Mackinaw City for their Save-The-Dates.

These two met at LSSU, they were both studying in the field of criminal justice when they met each other. Now they are both in the work force and love what they do. It made sense that Brad would bring his uniform for a few photos and I was beyond stoked to be able to capture them authentically.

They then did a quick switch of clothes and had the dogs stand in for a few photos.

The sunset was beautiful, casting a pink glow in the horizon. Once the sun had officially set, they grabbed a few of their favorite beers to share during blue hour once the lights on the Mackinac Bridge lit up.
