Leland Engagement Portraits

I have to start off by saying that I LOVE early morning sessions. During the afternoon or evening, the tourists and locals are out enjoying the sunshine. But early in the morning the public spaces are always quiet and the light is beautiful. It has quickly become my favorite time to photograph. I’m so thankful that Jesse & Andy were game for an early morning session. We met up with them in the adorable fish town of Leland, MI for their engagement portraits. They said they came the day prior to walk around the town and it was packed, so they were thankful they choose a morning session too.

As we arrived at the marina we were greeted by the smiling faces of Jesse & Andy. There were faint sounds of waves crashing on the dock and seagulls squawking. The warm breeze off of Lake Michigan was the perfect temperature for their session. We started their engagement pictures strolling along the charming dock. A couple fishermen were loading their boats as Jesse & Andy cuddled up for photos. They brought along a couple props (as you can see below) and looked fantastic in their first outfits.
A short walk and outfit change later the happy couple strolled along the sunny beachside. We love how ridiculously playful and in love Jesse and Andy are. It made for such a fun session! They heckled each other, splashed in the water, and truly rocked their session. We can’t thank enough for traveling up to Traverse City area, waking up super early, and allowing us to capture their engagement session. We are looking forward to capturing their wedding next year. Until then, enjoy!
