It was a little raining the morning of their wedding but turned out to be nice day later for their outdoor portraits.  Andrew works at Dow Diamond for the Loons so we had incredible access around the stadium since the ball team was on the road.  I love the custom jerseys they had made to celebrate their day.  We also stopped by the Tridge in Midland for some more portraits of Kayla and Andrew.  I enjoyed working with their families and wedding party all day.

Finally, we were off to the Holiday Inn in Midland for their reception where a good time was had by everyone for sure.

Congratulations again to Kayla and Andrew!

Madison & Adam-SVSU Founders Hall Wedding-Dow Gardens Wedding-The Great Hall Reception https://www.harbourlightphotography.com/blog/2018/7/madison-adam-svsu-founders-hall-wedding-dow-gardens-wedding-the-great-hall-reception The Diehl family have been longtime clients at the studio and I had the pleasure of photographing Madison and her siblings senior portraits.  I love that now being in business for 13 years I am starting to photograph several weddings of High School Seniors who remember we do great wedding photography as well.

Madison and Adam tied the knot on May 27th at Founders Hall on the campus of Saginaw Valley State University.  After pictures there, we ventured to Dow Gardens in Midland where we spent the afternoon photographing around the beautiful gardens.  It's the best!

After Dow Gardens, we photographed their reception at The Great Hall in Midland in their beautiful ballroom.  The food was awesome of course!

Madison and Adam were such a sweet couple and I loved photographing Adam's big smile as he looked at Madison throughout the day.  He smiles a lot!

God Bless!

Amanda & Jacob-Auburn Wedding-Dow Gardens Wedding-Forest Edge Reception https://www.harbourlightphotography.com/blog/2018/7/amanda-jacob-auburn-wedding-dow-gardens-wedding-forest-edge-reception I had the pleasure of capturing Amanda's senior portraits and her mother Kim was a preschool teacher for all of our girls at Auburn Area Catholic Schools.  The Buchmann's are a wonderful family and have been great clients.  I knew Jacob also with all of our sports photos taken at Western High School.

Amanda and Jacob tied the knot on May 26th at St. Gabriel's and Forest Edge Banquet Hall both in Auburn.  It was a beautiful day for a wedding and a storm rolled through later that night during the reception that knocked out power in the Auburn area. They say it's good luck if it rains on your wedding day.

After a beautiful ceremony at St. Gabriel's we went to the wonderful Dow Gardens in Midland for location portraits with their wedding party.  You cannot go wrong with Dow Gardens for your wedding day portraits.  

Once we were done at Dow Gardens it was off to Forest Edge Banquet in Auburn for their reception of great food and fun on the dance floor.

It was an honor to capture your special day Amanda and Jacob and best wishes on your new life together!

Stacey & William-Frankenmuth Wedding-Bavarian Inn Motor Lodge Wedding https://www.harbourlightphotography.com/blog/2018/7/stacey-william-frankenmuth-wedding-bavarian-inn-motor-lodge-wedding It is time for me to get caught up on my wedding blog posts.  Being gone out west for two weeks in June put me behind but I'm excited to share some awesome weddings from this Spring.

I was so honored to capture Stacey and William's bid day at the Bavarian Inn Motor Lodge on May 19th.  The Motor Lodge provides such a wonderful backdrop for a wedding ceremony and reception.  The rainy weather pushed the ceremony into the indoors pool courtyard which was still awesome for a ceremony.  The weather did lighten up a bit later and allowed us to get some portraits outside around the Lodge.  The Composer's Room also provided a great backdrop for their reception.

The one common theme among Stacey, William, their wedding party and guests was LOVE.  There was a lot of smiles, hugs, and genuine embraces all around as these two wonderful people said, "I Do!" and shared their love of each other with everyone in attendance.

It was awesome to witness and I wish nothing but the best to Stacey and William as they continue their love story together.

Jill and Martin - Traverse City Wedding - Hagerty Center Wedding https://www.harbourlightphotography.com/blog/2017/11/jill-and-martin---traverse-city-wedding---hagerty-center-wedding Jill and Martin said "I Do" on October 14th at the wonderful Hagerty Center in Traverse City right on the shore of Grand Traverse Bay.  The forecast wasn't promising all week for their outdoor ceremony but having a 10:30AM ceremony and Brunch wedding reception proved to be the answer to dodge the rain.  It did rain later that day but we had all of our portraits done by that point.  It was a little chilly outside but what a setting to have their ceremony and portrait locations around the Hagerty Center grounds.

I've known Jill and her family for many years.  Jill used to assist me at weddings when I worked at Dirla Studio in Bay City when she was in High School and I was, let's just say I wasn't in High School.  We've kept in touch over the years and it was very flattering when she called me to let me know she wanted me to photograph her wedding and engagement portraits. She sure was a beautiful bride and Marty is one of the nicest grooms I've ever photographed.  I just loved witnessing their special bond between them and it really shows in their portraits.

I am a bit jealous that they live in such a beautiful area of Michigan and get to call the Traverse City area home.

Enjoy Jill and Marty.  I am so happy for you both!

Jordan & Tommy - Tawas Wedding - AuGres Wedding https://www.harbourlightphotography.com/blog/2017/11/jordan-tommy---tawas-wedding---augres-wedding I almost forgot to share Jordan and Tommy's wedding from September so I apologize to this amazing couple.  It was an absolutely perfect day for a wedding weather wise.  Jordan and Tommy had their ceremony in Tawas and entertained their many guests in AuGres at the Lions club pavilion which was transformed by Tommy's mother and her friends into an amazing reception venue.  The decorations were amazing and the food was out of this world. (especially the homemade ice cream)  Jordan and Tommy had a large wedding party of friends and relatives and they were so much fun to be with.  After portraits at church we stopped to a farm on the way to AuGres for some portraits by an old barn, tractor and bridge.

Congrats to the happy couple as you start your new life together!

Michelle & Trevor - Midland Wedding - Midland Country Club https://www.harbourlightphotography.com/blog/2017/11/michelle-trevor---midland-wedding---midland-country-club Michelle and Trevor said 'I do' on Friday, October 13th at Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic Church in Midland and entertained their guests at the Midland Country Club later for their reception.  I had the pleasure of photographing Michelle's sister Lauren's wedding earlier in the year so it was so nice to work with the families again.  We did some pre ceremony portraits at Michelle's parents' home of the girls and portraits of the guys were at church.  After the ceremony we stopped at a location in Midland near the Alden B. Dow home and then it was off the incredible Midland Country Club for some more portraits with their wedding party.  Bridges, waterfalls, stairways surely provided some wonderful backdrops for some Fall portraits.  DJ Ryan Rousseau had the crowd rockin' on the dance floor and it was a fun evening for sure.

It has been quite an honor to capture two sisters' weddings in the same year.  Thank you to the Meunier family for having me be a part of your special year of weddings!

Nicole and Joshua - Bay City Wedding - Dow Gardens Wedding Photos https://www.harbourlightphotography.com/blog/2017/9/nicole-and-joshua---bay-city-wedding---dow-gardens-wedding-photos Nicole and Joshua shared their vows on August 26th at Joshua's parents' backyard in a lovely small ceremony.  The weather was gorgeous for their entire day with a small breeze and perfect temps.  After family photos we went to Dow Gardens for some beautiful portraits with their son and wedding party.  Dow was of course in full bloom and beautiful as ever.  After Dow Gardens, we went back to LFA Hall for their reception with their guests.  Josh's Mom Patsy, her husband Randy and son Ryan have been long time friends of ours and it was such a pleasure to spend such a special day with all of them.  You will notice a photo of three couples dancing on the dance floor and in 25 years of photographing weddings, I have never seen this happen.  Joshua and Nicole share their wedding date of August 26 with Josh's parents and Grandparents.  Three generations sharing the same anniversary.  What a special gift to share with those special people in your life.

Kayla & James - SVSU Founders Hall wedding - Dow Diamond reception https://www.harbourlightphotography.com/blog/2017/9/kayla-james---svsu-founders-hall-wedding---dow-diamond-reception Kayla and James shared their vows on August 19th at Founders Hall on the campus of SVSU.  After their ceremony we stopped at Kayla's parents' Centennial Farm for a photo on the front porch and with their dog.  Next, we ventured to Bay City State Park for some incredible beach photos with their wedding party.  Then it was off to Dow Diamond in Midland where the Loons play.  Their reception was held in the concourse of the ballpark which provided such a neat backdrop for their guests.  We were able to go out onto the field later in the evening for some cool photos around the bases and in the dugout.  The $.25 Beer Band entertained their guests with some country music.

It was such a perfect day for weather as the temperatures made it very comfortable all day and evening.  We had a wonderful time capturing Kayla and James on their special day.

Katelyn & Austin - Bay City Wedding - Beach Wedding Portraits https://www.harbourlightphotography.com/blog/2017/9/katelyn-austin---bay-city-wedding---beach-wedding-portraits Time to get caught up on some wedding blogging.  Katelyn and Austin tied the knot on August 12 at Bay Valley Christian Church and entertained their guests at the LFA Hall.  I had the pleasure of photographing both Katelyn and Austin for their Senior portraits so what an honor to capture their special day.  There were so many wonderful, emotional moments throughout the day from their prayer together before their ceremony to when Katelyn saw her Dad for the first time in her dress.  We ventured to Bay City State Park for some beach portraits with their wedding party and then stopped in Downtown Bay City for a few more before it started to rain.  I was able to capture some Infrared shots as well.  Love the IR photos with all the leaves turning white like snow. 

We surely created some beautiful portraits of such a wonderful couple and families.

Kami and Connor - Gladwin Wedding - Rustic Barn Wedding https://www.harbourlightphotography.com/blog/2017/7/kami-and-connor---gladwin-wedding---barn-wedding I had the pleasure of photographing both Kami and Connor's senior portraits when they graduated from high school.  It is a great feeling to have such wonderful clients who come back for other portraits needs such as family sessions and weddings.  

They had their wedding at a family friend's home in Gladwin in a rustic red barn.  Barn weddings have become a very popular trend.  They do provide such a unique venue for ceremonies and reception.  The forecast did not look great for their special day and it did rain most of the day.  Similar to other weddings this year, we were determined to not let the rain spoil our photography.  Every time it would let up or stop we literally ran outside with family members and the wedding party to get our photos done outside.  We did get every grouping we needed and I was able to get a nice variety of Kami and Connor considering the weather.

Kami and Connor had the most amazing guests who at the last minute with the rain had to bring all the chairs inside the barn for the ceremony and dry them with towels.  In about 15 minutes they moved the reception tables to the outside, set up chairs in rows with an aisle down the middle and voila, instant ceremony location and it was so beautiful in the barn.  Sometimes the backup plan works out better than Plan A.

Have a wonderful life together Kami and Connor.

Adam

Lauren and Marshall - Midland Wedding - The H Hotel Wedding https://www.harbourlightphotography.com/blog/2017/7/lauren-and-marshall---midland-wedding---the-h-hotel-wedding Lauren and Marshall said 'I Do' on June 17th at Assumption Catholic Church in Midland and entertained their guests at The H Hotel in downtown Midland.  We started with portraits of the bridesmaids at Lauren's parents' home which was a wonderful backdrop for portraits.  

Then we moved to the church for portraits of Marshall and his groomsmen and family.  After the ceremony the rain started and it didn't let up for a while.  Fortunately, having their reception at The H Hotel provided so many locations inside we could work and create some amazing portraits.  

And just before they made their entrance into the reception the rain stopped and we were able to sneak outside and take some portraits of the two of them along Main Street in Midland.  We were determined to NOT let the weather spoil our photography plans and it shows as they have some beautiful portraits to cherish.  

I also am looking forward to photographing Lauren's sister Michelle's wedding in October.  It is so fun to work with such wonderful families twice in the same year.

Congratulations to Lauren and Marshall.

Tyler & Allie - Bay City Wedding - Doubletree Hotel Wedding https://www.harbourlightphotography.com/blog/2017/7/allie-tyler---bay-city-wedding---doubletree-hotel-wedding Allie and Tyler's wedding in Bay City on June 10th was an awesome day for us to be a part of.  We started with some getting ready candids of the wedding party at the Doubletree and then went to St. Stans in Bay City for their ceremony and portraits there.  We were able to find some areas outside church that the wind wasn't so strong as it was a very windy day.  But it was sunny and not rainy so a little wind wasn't going to spoil our portrait opportunities.

We did some portraits down by the Saginaw River after the ceremony and went back out for some beautiful sunset portraits later in the evening.

Allie and Tyler were such a wonderful couple to work with.  We truly captured some amazing images and I can't wait for them to see their album which is already ordered.

Best wishes to Allie and Tyler on your new life together.

Ethan and Rachel Tranel - Saginaw Wedding - Golden Glow Ballroom https://www.harbourlightphotography.com/blog/2017/6/ethan-and-rachel-tranel---saginaw-wedding---golden-glow-ballroom It's time to get caught up on my wedding blogging.  It's been long overdue.  I wanted to share some portraits from Ethan and Rachel's wedding from this Spring.  It was such a beautiful day for a wedding and trees were in full bloom which proved to be a perfect match with the bridesmaids dresses.  St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church in Saginaw provided a wonderful location for their ceremony and Rachel and Ethan entertained their guests at the Golden Glow Ballroom.  On our way to the reception, we stopped at park to take some beautiful portraits by the water and around the park.  Everyone was so wonderful to work with and the photos show that for sure.  Congratulations to Rachel and Ethan on your new life together.

Shayla Neumeyer - Bay Valley Academy Dancer - KAR National Winner https://www.harbourlightphotography.com/blog/2016/9/shayla-neumeyer---bay-valley-academy-dancer---kar-national-winner I am excited to share some photos and news about this young lady.  Shayla is a competitive dancer at Bay Valley Academy(BVA) in Bay City.  BVA recently competed at a national dance competition in Myrtle Beach, SC held by KAR (Kids Artistic Review).  BVA did extremely well at the competition as a school and Shayla earned a very special opportunity.  Shayla was invited to participate at The Hollywood Dance Invitational which will provide dancers the opportunity to take master classes and immerse into the commercial dance, film, and television industry in Los Angeles. The event will take place in December of 2016 and will be an exciting and innovative way for dancers to connect with and learn from some of the most renowned professionals in the industry.  

Shayla needed some model/dance portraits to submit so she came in for a session and we were able to take some beautiful portraits.  Shayla is in eighth grade at Bay City Western High School.  

We wish her the best in December in HOLLYWOOD!  How exciting!

Adam

Shae - Bay City Western Class of 2017 - Senior Portrait Photographer https://www.harbourlightphotography.com/blog/2016/8/shae---bay-city-western-class-of-2017---senior-portrait-photographer I am so excited to share portraits of this young lady.  Shae started working at the studio back in May and has worked full time this summer and will also be our co-op student from Western High School for this school year.  Many of you who have called the studio or have come in have met her in person or over the phone.  Shae has been a blessing to us at HLP.  We have had a very busy summer and with some changes at the studio, she has jumped right into some key roles and responsibilities at the studio and has handled them beautifully.  Shae has dreams of becoming a professional photographer herself so we did do some portraits with her very own camera.  Shae sure has a knack for posing in front of the camera as you will see in her portraits.  She has fit right into our studio family and is a joy to have around.  

For her portrait sessions, we did a Signature session at our studio and Portrait Park and then we made the drive to one of my favorite beach locations for Senior portraits, The ROCK!  I grew up climbing on this rock and spent many a summer visiting it when we had our family cottage near Port Austin.  Shae and her mom joined me and Marisa, (my awesome assistant) for an incredible evening of lighting and CALM water.  I can't ever remember not seeing a ripple on the water.  The sunset was spectacular and we sure did get some amazing images and I know Shae talked about going there quite a bit after. It was sure worth the trip, not to mention the must have DQ stop in Caseville on the way home.

Heather & Graham - Bay City Wedding Photographer - Montague Inn Wedding https://www.harbourlightphotography.com/blog/2016/7/heather-graham---bay-city-wedding-photographer---montague-inn-wedding Some of you may remember my Blog post of Heather and Graham's engagement session from last Fall from U of M's campus.  They had such beautiful portraits for that session and now I can proudly share their wedding photos from their July 2nd wedding at the wonderful Montague Inn in Saginaw.  Conrad and I started the day at the Montague photographing the girls getting ready and then traveled to St. John's church in Essexville for their ceremony (with my favorite priest of all time, Father Dale Orlik)  

After their ceremony it was back to the Montague for more portraits around the grounds with their wedding party and we followed that by hopping on their bus and going over the Saginaw River for some urban portraits near the Stable ski shop on Hamilton St. near the river.  Heather and Graham had a rather large wedding party with 8 couples which made for some fun times and portraits.  

After portraits were complete, it was back to the Montague where they entertained their guests under a large white tent, beautifully decorated with old books and some vintage cameras on the tables.  (Loved that of course)  Dean Rusch and his band CEYX kept the dance floor rocking with their music and we topped the evening off with some sunset portraits down by the river of the happy couple.

It was truly a beautiful day for weather and how could you not take a beautiful portrait of this amazing couple.  Everyone was so kind and gracious and Conrad and I were treated like family.

Congratulations to Heather and Graham!

Adam
