Rebecca and Jeff Engagement

This past Saturday we had probably the nicest day of May for the wedding of Rebecca and Jeff.  They were married outside in the gazebo at the Northport Marina and then we had just a short walk to Willowbrook Mill for their awesome reception.   I can't wait to share some of their wedding day images but in the mean time here are some images from their Engagement Session.  We started at the Grand Traverse commons and then wrapped up at West End Beach.  www.carlsonphotographytc.com ~ www.tcslowmotionbooth.com

Rebecca and Jeff Engagement

Nicole and Michael will be getting married this June 21st at the beautiful Homestead Resort.  Recently we were able to spend an evening together capturing images for their Engagement Session.  I love it when we are able to spend that time together with our couples.  We started by pulling over and grabing some images in an orchard along the side of the road and then headed out the Old Mission Lighthouse.  It was certainly a beautiful evening.  Nicole shared that she was a little nervous about having a camera pointed at her for 2 hours but you wouldn't know it from the images would you.  They were a very cute couple. Can't wait for their big day.  Here are ...

Kristy's Family and Friends
Friday, August 02, 2013

I met Kristy and her family and friends a few weeks ago for an evening portrait session.  We started around their home and then headed to a beach.  It was a beautiful night and they were a pleasure to photograph.  You know you have good friends when you include them in your family portraits.  We all need friends like that don't we.  And then you have Kristy's adorable daughter.  I'm not sure what she thought of this bald photographer but my goodness, the camera loved her!  She was so cute and had so many amazing expressions.  Here are just a few images from our session together:www.carlsonphotographytc.com

Annie and Allen
Saturday, July 27, 2013

Our first wedding of the 2013 season was with Annie and Allen and their amazing families.  We started the day with a first glimpse at the Open Space and then we headed over for the ceremony at the Holiday Inn out by their huge Willow tree next to the water.  After, we hit downtown for some a couple more locations and then ended at the top of the Park Place.  It was truly a pleasure being a part of their wedding day.  They allowed plenty of time for photographs which made for such a great experience.  www.carlsonphotographytc.com

Jennifer and Patrick Enagement
Thursday, June 21, 2012

I met Jennifer and Patrick for an evening around the Downtown area in order to capture some great images for their engagement session.  It was beautiful weather and a great location.  In just a couple months I'll be joining them again to capture their wedding.  I know include an Engagement Session with most of my wedding packages.  I think it is a great chance to not only capture some beautiful images in a relaxed session but it also is a chance to get to know one another before the big day.  Here are some of the results: check out our website at www.carlsonphotographytc.com for more information on wedding and engagement packages.
