Steve and Kathi recently celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary with a trip to Michigan’s lovely Mackinac Island. A few weeks before the trip, they decided to commemorate the occasion with a portrait shoot together. (See? It isn’t just for young, engaged couples!) We went to one of their favorite places, Empire Beach, on the northern tip of the Michigan, right on the lakeshore. We were going to hit the shoot and book it to dinner, but I wanted to wait for the light to cool down a bit. It was worth it! There was an ethereal haze on the horizon that, as the sun set, made the lake appear to blend seamlessly into the sky. I’ve never seen anything like it.
Steve and Kathi, were positively glowing, and absolutely inspiring. Take note, all my bride-to-be readers, you too can be this happy years into your marriage. 😉
For you, Steve and Kathi, I hope to have provided a record of a wonderful anniversary you’ll always remember. Congratulations!
I told you they were cute!
And look at that amazing evening light…
The beach grass was a wonderful backdrop, but I went barefoot and ended up taking a few pieces home with me that I had to dig out a few weeks later. That stuff is sharp!
Steve and Kathi’s seventeen-year-old daughter, Melissa, also joined us on Empire Beach. I took a series of senior portraits that I’ll share with you later this week… But right now I just can’t get over how adorable these two are.
Here are a few more of my favorites. Enjoy!
