The best portrait backdrops

We've been asking our favorite wedding photographers around the country to share some of their go-to spot for wedding portrait backdrops. Michigan-based Cory Weber of Cory Weber Photography suggested Crooked Creek Ranch in Cedar. "There's a plethora of gorgeous locations to choose from—everything from birch tree forests and the shores of Lake Leelanau to rustic horse pastures and lush wildflower fields," he says. "I've photographed wedding portraits there often and have a completely different experience each time." For more ideas on the best portrait backdrops in Michigan, pick up the latest issue of Brides Michigan magazine on newsstands now (and turn to page to page 104 to see a lovely wedding that took place at Crooked Creek Ranch). —Heather Lee, Editor, Brides Michigan
