I had the privilege to document Andreya and Tyler’s heartfelt ceremony amidst the serene ambiance of Good Harbor Bay trail. Nestled along W Lake Michigan Road, this hidden gem boasts easy beach access and a scenic pine forest that set the stage for their intimate first look.

On a warm August day, we convened for their mid-day first look, seeking the shelter of majestic pines. The moments were exquisite as I captured their connection, along with candid couple and individual portraits.

Their loved ones gathered at the Good Harbor Bay Trailhead for the ceremony, embracing the flat elevation ideal for all ages. The beach provided an enchanting backdrop for family photos, and the cooling shade was a respite from the sun.

Following their elopement, Fishtown in downtown Leland provided an authentic and captivating atmosphere. Walking by the docks, fishing shanties, and Leland River, we documented their journey as the active fishing port added its own charm.

The day concluded with a glimpse of family and friends behind the Riverside Inn and the elegant table decor set for their reception dinner. Andreya and Tyler, your choice to entrust me with your special day is truly appreciated. Your adventurous spirit and the warmth of your loved ones made this experience unforgettable.
