There really is not a more ideal location for engagement photos than the beautiful backdrop of Northern Michigan. This is in part because it is home to some amazing views courtesy of its many lakes and beaches. Sarah and Matt chose to have their pictures taken at the clear blue waters of Torch Lake in Alden, Michigan. After stopping by the lake, the couple further embraced the magnificent Northern landscapes with a horseback ride through the fields of Outrider horseback riding. We got to meet a great man by the name of Doug. What an amazing lover of animals and a man with a beautiful spirit. Nearby pine forests provided creative photo spots as well. We finished the photo session at their “secret” spot in the middle of nowhere surrounded by the beauty of Michigan’s blue lake water. Sarah and Matt’s engagement session captured the beauty and warmth of Michigan summers, and the excitement and wonder of their new journey together.
