Engagement Photographer

Traverse City, Michigan

Congratulations, you’re engaged! You two lovebirds are soaking it in and you deserve an engagement photographer who focuses less on manufacturing the perfect shot and more on getting you out on an adventure that lets the spirit of your relationship emerge naturally.

We are fortunate to have so many beautifully striking landscapes and vistas here in Traverse City and throughout Northern Michigan. As your engagement photographer, my role is to chronicle this incredible moment in your shared journey. A sense of exploration and discovery in a gorgeous, wild setting inspires authentic glimpses of both of you as you see one another, creating lasting photographic memories that speak volumes from the frame.

I want to hear all about your dream engagement shoot! Beaches and dunes or woods and streams? On land, out on the water, or a little of both? Send me a message and we’ll find a time to chat over coffee about how we can work together to create engagement photos that are a celebration of who you are and what’s most important to you.

"Josh is a PHENOMENAL photographer. We used him to take couples pictures of my boyfriend and I. My boyfriend HATES having his picture taken, but Josh made it easy and fun. Not only was he fun to be around he was very professional. He gave us our photos back in no time, and we had so many to choose from too. It was definitely worth every single penny. We love how the images turned out and know we will treasure them forever. Do yourself a favor, book Josh for whatever photos you need taken!" ~Elle
