Rustic Wild Arrow - The best kept secret for family photos in Brooklyn, Michigan

I cannot tell you how excited I was to finally get a time slot at Rustic Wild Arrow in Brooklyn, Michigan for late summer 2023. It is the most amazing and best kept secret for photographers (though it's not that much of a secret anymore) and it is a perfect spot for family photos any time of year. Holly who owns RWA with her husband has the sweetest vision and is able to execute some pretty incredible backdrops for photos. It's like our own little secret garden nestled in a small wood where you get transplanted into a storybook. The best part? Holly is constantly changing things up and adding new features each season! We could come back every year for your family photos and it would be an upgrade every time!


Anyways, you can see for yourself how incredible of a location Rustic Wild Arrow is for family photos. (Can you tell I'm in love?)
