Today I photographed the most beautiful Sleeping Bear Dunes proposal. My day couldn’t get any better. These photos are absolutely gorgeous. Congratulations Erin and Joey! And thank you for exploring one of my favorite trails with me just outside of Glen Arbor, Michigan. For Erin and Joey’s session, we had a beautiful sunrise and the wind certainly added plenty of drama. I love a little windblown hair.

I’m so happy I took the time to explore this area of Sleeping Bear Dunes Proposal just outside of Glen Arbor, Michigan. I did a little scouting around the Glen Haven Cannery before our session and I found the perfect spot for our Sleeping Bear Dunes proposal.

The morning of the proposal I took Erin and Joey down a dirt road to one of my favorite trails. Erin and Joey were all smiles when they arrived to meet me in Glen Arbor, Michigan. For the proposal, Joey came prepared with a few words and then he dropped to one knee right there on the beach. Erin could not have been more thrilled. Oh yeah, she said yes by the way. 🙂

After the proposal, we took our time strolling down the streets of Glen Arbor and then we drove to my favorite hike in the Sleeping Bear Dunes. We made our way to one of my favorite views of the lake. It was a challenging climb up the dunes in our bare feet, but we were rewarded with the most superb lighting. Joey and Erin danced around at the top of the dune while the sand blew beneath their feet. Perfection!

I’m so excited for Erin and Joey. I had so much fun photographing you two. Thank you for choosing me to photograph your Sleeping Bear Dunes proposal and good luck planning your Northern Michigan wedding.
