Engagement photo at Sleeping Bear Dunes overlooking lake michigan and the manitou islands

Grace and Tom vacation here each year with family near Frankfort, Michigan.  Being from Texas, Michigan is a wonderful reprieve from the heat in south during the summer.  When they arrived for their vacation, they toured Sleeping Bear Dunes, Arcadia, Point Betsie, Empire, and a few other locations to determine a great spot for their engagement photos.

Well….they decided upon a great location!  We had an incredible time roaming the sand dunes in Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park, and then taking a little drive down to the lake shore for some sunset pictures.   We even walked past a very unhappy snake rattling in the dune grass!
