Welcome to our blog! 

We are Mark & Noelle McCoy, a husband & wife photography team serving couples who care deeply about their wedding pictures and who want vibrant and classic imagery that documents their day.  We locally photograph weddings on Mackinac Island, Traverse City, and the Metro-Detroit area.  We have also shot weddings internationally in beautiful places like Guatemala and Italy, not to mention a handful of beautiful places across our own country from North Carolina, to Texas, Tennessee and Ohio!

Thank you for stopping by our blog… please send us an email if you'd like to talk with us about your wedding plans!  

We are currently booking for 2016 & 2017.

Franklin Tennessee Engagement Session // Ryan + Jen, Part ii


Ryan+Jen are total troopers.  Mark and I had them out on the HOTTEST weekend in the history of time (and I'm being serious!), to shoot their engagement session a few days ago.   But they laughed, had fun, and went along with anything we asked the entire time we were together.  

Ryan is my cousin, so this session was super special for me.  I had so much fun getting to know Jen, and I am looking forward to seeing her at family get togethers for the rest of our lives!  

Ryan+Jen, Mark and I hope you love this small glance into your engagement session collection!  ENJOY!



We started off their session at the location where Ryan proposed to Jen.  We LOVED the view from the overlook, it looks like the rolling hills of Tennessee go on forever!!!  


I love it when Mark and I shoot the exact same moment, but see it totally differently!  Mark shot the image below with the buttery yellow background...


...and I captured this view of the same moment with a canopy of greens behind them!


After seeing these images, I'm pretty convinced Jen could be a model...


Franklin Tennessee Engagement Session // Ryan + Jen

This session is incredibly special to me.  Over the weekend (yes, the record hottest weekend EVER!), Mark and I met up with my cousin Ryan and his beautiful fiance Jen, to capture some images of their engagement.  This is just a sneak peek into their collection.

Ryan+Jen, we hope you love this little teaser, and we are excited to show you the rest of your collection and design your Guest Sign In Album!  =)

Grand Hotel Wedding, Mackinac Island, MI // Emily + Sean - Part iii 

Emily and Sean are two of the sweetest people you could ever meet.  Mark and I had the pleasure of photographing their wedding day, that took place just over a week ago, at Grand Hotel on the lovely Mackinac Island.  They are incredibly easy going, quick to laugh, and trusted us as photographers, even to the point of walking into yellow wildflowers so we could capture them just the way we wanted to!      

Emily and Sean, we can't express enough how thankful we were to be a part of your first day in this new chapter of your lives together. It was an honor getting to know you both. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to capture your beautiful wedding. Your friends and family are amazing, and we have no doubt you're destined for incredible success with them cheering you on. We hope you love these few images from your time together after your ceremony, and a few moments from your reception dinner!  ENJOY!
