Tips & Ideas

Tim and Rachel are married! Well, actually, they were married in April but due to Covid, they weren’t able to have their day photographed by me which makes me incredibly sad. Instead of waiting a whole year to take pretty photos, we decided to celebrate their wedding day with photos in Petoskey!

I scouted and found some of the most gorgeous locations. This beautiful overpass, a row of Willow trees and a private rocky shoreline filled with unique stones and even a few Petoskey stones! It certainly was a beautiful day for a session even if it wasn’t exactly their wedding day.

Tim & Rachel – I hope these images bring you joy and show you two what matters most amidst all of this in 2020 – that the two of you are MARRIED and have the rest of your lives together ahead of you. What a special thing to celebrate!

Rachel enlisted Shelby from The Day’s Design to create the boutonniere and bouquet and they were STUNNING!

Once we got to this private beach, Tim and Rachel read letters from one another. I have no idea what they said, but I have a feeling that they mentioned this crazy year and how it ended exactly the way they wanted. Becoming Mr & Mrs 🙂

Aren’t the driftwood logs and stumps so pretty in the images? They add so much texture and interest.

Tim & Rachel – Congratulations you two! I can NOT wait to CELEBRATE with you two and your families next year. After 2020 and all that you have went through, it surely will be a day to celebrate. I’ll be there with my camera in hand and a huge smile on my face!

xoxo – Kellie
