Sleeping Bear Dunes engagement photographer

Roxanne and Spencer will be getting married this winter at Nature – A Michigan Retreat. Before that day comes, they wanted to set up an engagement session in the Sleeping Bear Dunes, at the same trail they got engaged on: Empire Bluffs Scenic Outlook. They chose a beautiful autumn day for a hike. We adventured the dunes together. Immediately on the hike in, we already clicked. We excitedly talked about all the outdoor adventures that Roxanne and Spencer like to take. They especially love to explore in the winter months when everywhere is less busy. That’s opposite of me, as I leave every winter to avoid the cold.

When they messaged me about their winter wedding, I couldn’t help myself; I was happy to extend my stay in Michigan to be there to document their day.

Roxanne and Spencer were blessed with an epic sunset. While it had snowed in other parts of Michigan, the weather was pretty warm for an autumn evening. We wandered and played in the dunes until the sun had finally set in the horizon, casting a vibrant glow in the sky. Choosing the best pictures for Save-The-Dates was challenging. I love when that’s the only problem my couple has with the photos.
