Brent and Emily | Keweenaw Mountain Lodge wedding

Brent and Emily’s Keweenaw Mountain Lodge wedding was a gorgeous one despite the gloomy rainy day.   These two were surrounded and supported by such wonderful large families and you would never guess the weather was the way it was by their happy and joyful demeanor throughout the day.  🙂

This ring shot pretty much sums up the rainy weather 😉

Danny and Gabby { Hancock engagement session

I’m excited to share this fun engagement session with you today.   Danny and Gabby were engaged last fall so we celebrated with a session last week 🙂
I’m so happy with the gorgeous sunshine we had since I thought we would for sure get rained out.   That is spring in the U. P. for you 😉  It was a beautiful evening and a ton of fun to hang out with these two 🙂

A huge thank you to Gisele Ryan of Make-up by GR for providing hair and make-up!
