We love exploring the Downtown of Traverse City. The food is amazing, the shops are wonderful, and it has such a great vibe. Since there is so much to see and do in the city the streets are typically filled with people exploring. That is why we met up with Zech and Makenzie early in the morning for their portrait session in Downtown Traverse City.
The happy couple had recently celebrated their anniversary and wanted some fun, updated portraits of the two of them. We started out their portraits along Boardman River. The bridges crossing the river and the lush trees illuminated by the morning sunshine was the perfect way to start the day. Afterwards while taking the walkway near Kilwins we loved how beautiful the light was in that little pocket park and stopped to embrace it. The shadows cast on the walls and the blossoming trees really made for unique portraits.
Eventually we went walking around Travers City and explored more of what it had to offer. Zech and Mackenzie were so wonderful to photograph and were willing make the frequent stops along the way–because when photographers ‘see the light’ we must stop, haha. Mackenzie stunned with her purple hair and gorgeous smile. Zech looked rad as can be in his outfits with perfect accessories. Together they wowed! It was easy to photograph them because their love and passion for each other poured out. Between dancing along the river to piggy back rides–there never was a dull moment!
We can’t thank Zech and Mackenzie enough for waking up early for their portrait session and for the frequent stops while exploring Downtown Traverse City. It was the perfect setting for such an incredible couple. Enjoy!
We love the image below. Their embracing hands and the almost kissing shadows are perfection.
