“Some things are just simple, and I believe when you know, you know. There was no question: I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her. I wanted with her what the stars share with the sky.” -Christopher Poindexter

Charlevoix, MI Connection Session

A few weeks ago I was visiting Northern Michigan (Lower Peninsula) again. It’s always wonderful to see Lake Michigan, smell the fresh, piney air, and explore the rugged woods. This Connection Session took place in Charlevoix along the Lake Michigan shoreline.

Sarah is an amazing photographer, and it was an honor to get to hang out with her and Jeremiah and create these photos with them! You should check out Sarah’s work HERE.

Great Lakes Photographer

The Great Lakes region is such a beautiful, diverse part of the planet. I’m so happy I live in Michigan and am always just a few hours away from amazing locations like this one.

We started this Connection Session in the woods, where the bright sun was peeking through the trees. The we climbed up a steep sandy hill to reach the dunes. From there we headed to the beach, as the sun sank lower in the sky. Finally, we headed back into the woods for a special sage ceremony.

Here are some of my favorite photos:

Lume Photography is a documentary elopement and wedding photographer based in Michigan, traveling worldwide. Behind the camera you’ll find me (Andrea)- a girl who loves animals, the wilderness, and love stories. I believe in magic, soulmates, and the hidden forces of energy that connect everything and everyone in the universe. My passion is documenting the moments, emotions, and connection between two souls in love, in wild places.

My home base is located in SE Michigan, but my second home is Northern Michigan. I’m frequently visiting Traverse City, Marquette & the Upper Peninsula. I’ve traveled all over, including Arizona, Colorado, Costa Rica, Scotland, and beyond to photograph wild elopements and small destination weddings.
