Mackinac Island Engagement Session Photography

It was a beautiful summer morning on Mackinac Island, the harbor was filled with boats which had completed the Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac, and we were so excited to meet Diana and Brian to talk about their 2016 wedding at Island House and shoot their engagement session on Brian's BEAUTIFUL sailboat and the surrounding marina.

Diana and Brian, we honestly had so much fun meeting you two and want to thank you for letting us climb all around your sailboat and trusting us to photograph such an exciting time during your engagement.  You two made Mackinac Island look good, and made our jobs not just fun, but easy!  We hope you love this little sneak peek from your session, and we're looking forward to your special day!

Wedding on Mackinac Island at Harbour View Inn

Bride and Groom in front of Grand Hotel Mackinac


I always LOVE working at smaller wedding venues on Mackinac Island, and Harbour View Inn is one of my favorites!  It was rainy afternoon for Melissa and Ron's wedding that was to take place at the outside gazebo in the back of the inn.  So in a last minute decision, Melissa and Ron opted to move their wedding ceremony inside to the front parlor of Harbour View Inn, and it went off without a glitch!

The pink wedding flowers, the painted mason jar reception centerpieces and the burlap table runners were all beyond beautiful.  Did it rain all day?  Well, yes it did. But that didn't stop Melissa and Ron from walking around outside during their carriage ride, nor did it put a hinder on their smiling faces.

Besides, everything is beautiful on Mackinac Island, including the rain.
