Beach Engagement | Derek + Arianna

It’s no secret that we adore beach portrait sessions; any of my couples can attest to how giddy we get when they request a beach engagement session!  We are just addicted to that beautiful, warm light that happens only twice a day once at daybreak and then again, an hour before sunset. Two weeks ago, we were lucky enough to photograph not only one but TWO beautiful couples at the beach!! How can we be so lucky?

So, when we met Derek & Arianna for their consultation, they mentioned that they wanted to do their engagement portraits at the beach… we were secretly bursting with joy and knew Ludington was the perfect place to do their engagement portraits!

We got into town mid-morning and the weather was beautiful! The best part is that we had so many gorgeous spots to ourselves which is a dream come true! It was just this wonderful couple, Lake Michigan and miles of sand in either direction. Derek and Arianna were naturals from the time we started. They are so in love and so joyful!  We photographed at some of our favorite locations in Ludington and they had such good-looking outfits! Brian and I had could have photographed them for hours if the sun had stayed to hang out with us.

Derek and Arianna, we had such a great time with both of you; and are so grateful we could capture your engagement session in Ludington it was the perfect setting to capture your love. Brian and I loved hanging out with the two of you and having the chance to get to know you both throughout the evening. We can’t wait to be a part of your wedding in December and hope you enjoy some of our favorites!ludington-beach-engagement-portraits-shannon-and-brian-photographyludington-engagement-portraits-shannon-and-brian-photographydowntown-ludington-engagement-portraits-shannon-and-brian-photographylake-michigan-engagement-shannon-and-brian-photographyludington-engagement-shannon-and-brian-photographyludington-engagement-portraits-shannon-and-brian-photographyludington-beach-engagement-portraits-shannon-and-brian-photographyludington-engagement-shannon-and-brian-photographyludington-engagement-shannon-and-brian-photographydowntown-ludington-engagement-portraits-shannon-and-brian-photographydowntown-ludington-engagement-portraits-shannon-and-brian-photographyludington-engagement-portraits-shannon-and-brian-photographybeach-engagement-portraits-shannon-and-brian-photographylake-michigan-engagement-portraits-shannon-and-brian-photographylake-michigan-engagement-portraits-shannon-and-brian-photographyengagement-portraits-shannon-and-brian-photographyludington-beach-engagement-portraits-shannon-and-brian-photographymichigan-beach-engagement-shannon-and-brian-photographylake-michigan-engagement-portraits-shannon-and-brian-photographyludington-engagement-portraits-shannon-and-brian-photographymichigan-beach-engagement-shannon-and-brian-photographyludington-engagement-shannon-and-brian-photographylake-michigan-engagement-portraits-shannon-and-brian-photographyludington-engagement-portraits-shannon-and-brian-photography
