Family Photographer Northern Michigan

This family all came together on a Brevort Lake in Upper Northern Michigan for a week of fun in a rental property.  They asked me to come out and capture their beautiful family images during  a short afternoon photography session.

If you are interested in having family or vacation images captured on your Northern Michigan vacation I would be happy to photograph your family.

Here are a few images from the family shoot in Northern Michigan.

Mackinac Island Mission Point Resort Engagement

 

Engagement Photography at Mission Point Resort on Mackinac Island with Amanda and Andy.

We met up at Mission Point gazebo on the lawn at Mission Point Resort and captured images around the property for about an hour.  The flowers were gorgeous and blooming.  The light was overcast and very soft.

It was a beautiful late morning shoot on Mackinac Island, Michigan.

Here are a selection of images from the Engagement Photography session at Mission Point Resort on Mackinac Island, Michigan.

Perry Hotel Wedding Rose Garden Petoskey, Michigan | Megan + Keith

Wedding Perry Hotel Petoskey Northern Michigan Rose Garden

 

Congratulations to Megan and Keith!  You two are a fun couple.  Your friends and family are great too.

Northern Michigan is hard to beat in the Summer.  This Summer the weather has been a bit off since the Winter was so harsh.

Megan and Keith got a cloudy day that felt more like an August day with higher temperatures and humidity.   Megan was a glowing Bride and Keith looked pretty dapper too.   The light was milky soft and beautiful.

The Wedding Ceremony was outdoor in the Stafford’s Perry Hotel Rose Garden with the Wedding Reception following in the Rose Garden under the tent.

Following the Wedding ceremony the staff at the Perry Hotel escorts everyone to the front porch for a complete Wedding attendance photo.  As the photo is captured, all of the chairs are moved to the Wedding reception area.  The guests are invited back in for the cocktail hour while the Bride and Groom have some images captured.

Since we had a first look with Megan and Keith we had minimal images to capture following the Ceremony.  We actually arrived back prior to the cocktail hours end.

Megan and Keith love the Kentucky derby so they had a vintage/kentucky derby Wedding theme.  Their Wedding color was Blush.  That is “salmon” for the guys.:-)

Here are some of the images we captured during their Perry Hotel Wedding in the Rose Garden.  If you would like to see all of the images from their day check out this link http://www.printsbypaul.com/Wedding-Photo-Northern-MI/Perry-Hotel-Wedding-Photograph/Northern-Michigan-Wedding/

Northern Michigan Wedding Elopement Mackinac Island

 

Mackinac Island has hundreds of elopement Weddings every Summer.  There are lots of locations on Mackinac Island where you can find a nice place for an intimate or elopement Wedding.  Almost all of the hotels and bed and breakfast locations will allow Elopement Weddings.  Other popular choices include The Grand Hotel porch, Windermere Point, Mission Point, Island House, Hotel Iroquois, The Inn at Stonecliffe, Harbour View Inn, Somewhere in Time gazebo, East Bluff, West Bluff, and lots more.

The Grand Hotel offers intimate Wedding packages that can be coupled with your stay at the Grand Hotel for an experience that you will never forget.

Ben and Susy come from Texas for their first time on Mackinac Island.  Ben said that his experience with booking was a great experience when he used The Grand Hotel Wedding coordinator Marty Davis.  Ben said that it was a piece of cake and that he had to just answer a few questions to get what he and Susy wanted on their day.

Minister Tom Marx officiated the Wedding.  Margaret’s Garden designed the beautiful Wedding flower bouquet.  Astor’s Salon completed the hair and makeup.

Ben and Susy also booked a Wedding carriage ride with Arrowhead Carriages immediately following their Wedding.

It was a beautiful day on Mackinac Island for a police officer from Texas and his beautiful wife.
