Mark & Hailey| Manitowoc Wedding

On Friday, I had the incredible privilege of photographing an intimate elopement for Mark & Hailey. These two were wed at the Manitowoc Yacht Club in front of their parents and grandparents, right on Lake Michigan. It could not have been a more beautiful afternoon!!! There wasn’t a cloud in the sky and a cool breeze rolled off the lake in the best way.

This was my first time photographing an elopement and I pray that it won’t be my last – I can’t begin to explain the overwhelming feeling of joy and happiness that I witnessed during the ceremony. After Mark & Hailey were declared husband and wife, they embraced their family members and squeezed each other tight… you could FEEL the love watching everyone hug each other, it was such a special moment to witness. After a few family portraits, I snuck away with Hailey and Mark for a quick bride & groom portrait session and the sunshine poured through the trees!

Hailey & Mark, congratulations on this huge milestone in your life! Thank you for asking me to be present on your wedding day and I can’t wait for everything the coming months and years will bring <3
