• Welcome to Beryl Striewski Photography , Striewski Weddings and Heartfarm!!

    HI! Welcome to my blog and my website. I am a Northern Michigan gal, and I spend lots of time photographing people, places and food! I live in Traverse City but, have been known to travel outside of Michigan for just the right shot! I can photograph your wedding... or your table... or your lovely family!
    Traverse City Wedding, Portrait and Food Photographer Beryl Striewski, specializes in Northern Michigan Weddings, Lifestyle assignments, Portraits and Food Photography.

This is my wonderful family that I had the pleasure of sharing time with this summer… Arwen and Heather and their two ridiculously cute children along with myself and my husband Jim (Arwen’s father)   along with a whole tribe of people from Heather’s side of the family vacationed together this summer in Colorado Springs.  We had a ball, hiking around Garden of the Gods and venturing up to the top of Pike’s Peak. I had the pleasure of taking some family portraits that I am oh so proud to share- not for the sake of the photography, but this family is so darn cute!!!  It was a glorious week, we had a fabulous time and here are a few of my favorite pictures that kind of say it all… family, love, children, vacation, love, family.  I can’t wait to see what we dream up for next year…

okay! this post is becomming too long… stay tuned for more family pictures!

Fall is in the air, and I wanted to remind everyone of how wonderful portraits can be with the warm fall light and the beautiful color of leaves that happens only in the fall.

Jackie, Dave and Alanna invited me to photograph them and their horses last year at Jackie and Dave’s farm.  I just love these warm and beautiful photographs.

If you’d like to have me take pictures with your horses, just call (713-927-5931)  or email me Beryl   and let’s set up an appointment!!

It was always Jenn’s dream to be photographed on her very large, deep black and gentle gelding named Jackson during her wedding.  She had hoped to ride down the aisle on him, hair flowing, black bow on her white dress flapping gently in the breeze as she cantered up to the minister to take her vows with her beloved… how romantic that would be.  Well, some things don’t turn out as planned. I think that Jackson had other thoughts about cantering down the aisle, but as it was, it was a beautiful day for a barn wedding.  Jackson was a gallant steed and posed for many pictures. More importantly though, Brad and Jenn tied the knot at this beautiful, backyard barn wedding. The evening was full of wonderful delight, great food shared with lots of friends and family…and we even had a couple of horses show up for the wedding!!  Jenn is a definate cowgirl… now, does this make Brad her very own cowboy?  Congratulations you two! I hope that you enjoy many many years of wedded bliss!!

Hi Ho Jackson!!!

When I first met up with Kim, she said that she was envisioning a colorful, summer sunset, beach celebration.  She was very excited about getting married to her beau Randy at a private beach home on East Bay. She wanted all the details to be perfect and was planning on personalizing many of her decorations for the wedding. Her celebration was filled with laughter, love, friends and smiles.  This beautiful  turquoise and coral orange setting was  beachy and colorful. Randy and Kim are blending two families.  Now there are 4 siblings that share 2 parents!  Their sunset beach celebration ended with a bonfire on the beach!  A wonderful ending to a perfect Northern Michigan Beach Wedding!  Congratulations Randy and Kim!

Sometimes a wedding comes along that just makes you happy and filled inside with so many good warm feelings!Justin and Aubrey’s wedding in Kalkaska at the family Otter Lodge is just one of those special miracles.  This was such a memorable celebration! Beginning with a   wedding chapel assembled with tree limbs that  was lovingly constructed by  family in a small little clearing right next to the Manistee River.  This was a special family event.  And it showed.  Even a little bit of rain didn’t spoil a single moment.  Here are some special photos from this wonderful event!  Justin and Aubrey, congratulations!!  May you have a long and happy life…
