Traverse City Engagement Photos that feel

Traverse City Engagement Photographer

engagement photos built around your unique relationship

This whole process should reflect what makes your relationship special

The decision to bind yourself to another is uniquely human. Your engagement story deserves images that radiate as deeply powerful, and uniquely magical as your partnership.

We are proud to have spend almost a decade and a half soaking in these moments, seeing the evolution of so many relationships. Whether alone on the coast of a summer beach, or a private living room with your closest family members, we help to craft and capture moments of joy that speak to what your relationship REALLY feels like.

Why we shoot Engagements

This entire process is emotional, from getting engaged to your wedding day. You are in for some unique and powerful moments.

If we have the luxury of working with you on your wedding, frankly, we are best at our job as wedding photographers when we are already friends. So, let’s become friends.

If you are just looking for images that showcase who you are to each other, filling out the details below will help us get a sense of you, your partner, and your relationship. From here, we will establish a time to start to get to know each other. After everything is done, we want to give you giant hugs, and feel so grateful to have met one another, because we are now definitely friends.

“I know what y'all are thinking...yes we have the best photographers EVER who can capture the most perfect little moments and make them the big ones.”


Why Traverse City?

We have taken photos and portraits on a wide range of this beautiful planet. There are endless locations that we COULD be located. Bigger markets, taller mountains, places with less snow.

But, if you have spent time in Traverse City, especially as a engagement photographer, you know how magical our coastlines, or forests, our dunes, and our people are. Northern Michigan has the best summers in the country hands down, and the people that we get to photograph while we are here? The best in the world.

Traverse City continues to be one of the most unique, beautiful, and awe inspiring spaces to have the luxury to document. While we do indeed travel all over to photograph humans, NoMI and Traverse City will always have a soft spot for us.

If you have watched the sun set over Lake Michigan, on a beach with no one around you for miles... you understand.

Brooke and Michael are magical. They collaborate flawlessly. Wonderful couple that that take beautiful photos.


I don’t know where to start! Brooke and Michael are so laid back and easygoing while still maintaining professionalism so it makes it easy to be comfortable and trust them. The whole experience of getting our photos taken never felt like WE had to feel the pressure of making it a good shoot—they just knew what to do. Not to mention their photo style is incredible. They’re so great at capturing moments between poses that make your photos truly can look back and remember how you felt when it was being taken it’s almost palpable just from an image. They are truly skilled artists!


Allen-Kent photography has a way of making you feel comfortable while also taking the best photos in Northern MI! I would highly recommend them to use for any photos you may need!


These are AMAZING!!!! We love how you captured everyone’s emotions! Thank you so so much!! We were cracking up at some of the faces you caught. Incredible. These are everything we’ve ever hoped for. Thank you both! We just love you two! ❤️


Brooke and Michael are absolutely amazing. Their work speaks for itself, but they went above and beyond, and helped us so much with our wedding! Michael brought my husband his tie, Brooke made sure to grab my winter coat and boots, so I would be comfortable between shots. They were able to capture some of our favorite wedding day moments, and preserve our day.
