On an overcast winter’s day we met up with Brittany & Sean for their engagement pictures along West Bay in Traverse City. They brought along their children to join in some of the portraits since their families will soon be blended together. They also brought along their adorable new husky puppy. Even though there was snow on the ground, the weather was actually quite comfortable. They said in southeastern Michigan, where they live, there was no snow at all! That’s why they were willing to travel to Northern Michigan for their pictures.
The area that we found for Brittany & Sean’s engagement session was perfect for them. It was a mix of beautiful snow filled woods as well as a gorgeous beach along Lake Michigan. The happy couple, and their adorable family, really nailed it with the outfits. Their puppy even coordinated perfectly for the photos. Once the family portraits were finished their children took the puppy along with them as they played in the woods. That allowed Brittany and Sean to really relax and cozy up in front of the camera.
It was amusing to watch Sean and Brittany interact with each other. Once one laughs the other joins right in–it’s easy to see how completely smitten these two love birds are. Our favorite pictures are the ones along the water, they had the beach all to themselves. Plus their outfits were right on point.
We can barely wait to photograph their wedding this July in southwestern Michigan. Huge thanks to Sean & Brittany for traveling up to Traverse City for their engagement session. We had a blast photographing all the fun that day. Enjoy!
That head tilt is beyond adorable.
Seriously–these two were styling in their outfits. Gorgeous!
We love the build up of her jumping into his arms!!
