Traverse City Day After Session | Kelly and Aaron | Josh Hartman Photography
Kelly contacted me about booking a Traverse City Day After Session shortly after her wedding. Kelly and Aaron got married four months ago in Michigan, but they didn’t get the intimate couples photos they wanted during their day. Plus, Kelly really wanted an excuse to wear her dress again. 🙂
The day before our adventure, we met for a drink at Brew in Downtown Traverse City. I learned a lot about Kelly and Aaron. They met through mutual friends at Mojos, a dualing piano bar in downtown Grand Rapids. Aaron moved to Grand Rapids for his first job out of college and Kelly met him the first night he moved. Kelly says she snatched him up before any other girls stood a chance. The two enjoy any excuse to be outside and love to kayak and bike in Northern Michigan.
“From the Mimosa toast to kick it off to the epic views on top of the dune, and all the beautiful scenery in between; we loved it all!”
Kelly and Aaron were inspired to book a Traverse City Day After Session mostly because they wanted pictures in Northern Michigan. “We love Northern Michigan and have many great memories in the greater Traverse City area, including our engagement at Clinch Park downtown Traverse City. I had a friend who did a day after session and I always thought her pictures were so cool. It seemed like an awesome way to get everything we wanted. We’ve been looking forward to having a photo session without a time schedule or rushing back to our wedding guests. We wanted to just enjoy our time together. That was exactly what we got and I would recommend doing something like this to anyone who asks, it was so much fun! From the Mimosa toast to kick it off to the epic views on top of the dune, and all the beautiful scenery in between; we loved it all!”
Thanks so much Kelly and Aaron. I had a blast adventuring with you guys in Sleeping Bear Dunes. I’m glad we stayed warm and even got a little snow. I’m so excited to share these photos. 😀
