Traverse City Elopement | Sunrise Sleeping Bear Elopement
Alicia and Matt drove up from Grand Rapids for their Traverse City Elopement. These two are originally from Milwaukee and have been making the drive to Northern Michigan for many years.
“Traverse City has become one of our fall weekend tradition. We always make sure to visit our favorite wineries, Mama Lu’s taco shop, and the world’s cutest airBnB – the Wadsworth’s Inn. Taking pictures in Traverse City seemed to commemorate both our fall tradition as well as our new life together in Michigan!” ~Alicia
Alicia and Matt are planning a wedding in Milwaukee next year, but they were excited about a Traverse City Elopement shoot. Alicia could not resist wearing her new lacey dress for our Dune Climb adventure. And in my opinion she couldn’t have picked a better dress for her pre-wedding Traverse City Elopement shoot. In case you’re looking for a dress that you can hike in, I highly reccommend checking out ASOS.
I knew Alicia and Matt would be up for this sunset adventure at the Sleeping Bear Dunes. The two are very outdoorsy and take every opportunity to travel. In their first year of dating, Alicia and Matt took a two week trip to Portugal highlighted by spontaneous rock climbing in Sintra and surfing in the Algarve. Sounds like my dream vacation.
Alicia and Matt haven’t stopped since. In Northern Michigan, the two enjoy bike riding (including an occasional tandem bike), blueberry picking, and kayaking. Alicia and Matt have so much in common, but they can’t seem to agree on one thing. Getting a dog. Is there a goldendoodle in their future?
When I asked Alicia and Matt why they chose me to photograph their Traverse City Elopement, Alicia had this to say. “Your overall aesthetic was both timeless and modern. You feature candid action photos versus static portrait-based images. You also seemed down to earth and a true up-and-coming artist.”
A big thanks to Alicia and Matt for adventuring with me in the Sleeping Bear Dunes. I had so much fun with you guys!
