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!

Jesse+Sabine - Nashville Wedding Photography

Sabine came all the way across the big "pond" to find Jesse, her Prince Charming.  And just over a week ago, in the cool breeze of October, Sabine married Jesse under a canopy of trees on a country farm.  Up to this point, we are not sure we've ever witnessed a groom with more excited-nervous energy than the bride.  I guess that Jesse became smitten with Sabine the minute they met, and Sabine introduced herself with her beautiful English accent mixed with alittle bit of southern charm.   

Mark grabbed this image during the ceremony.  It's a great overview of the serene setting where Jesse+Sabine wed.  A full recap will follow shortly...  Congratulations Jesse+Sabine!



Travis+Racheal - Mackinac Island Photography

One of my favorite things about working on Mackinac Island, is the transportation.  Mark and I get to work in one of two fashions, walking or riding our bikes.  Racheal contacted us early in the summer, though she's not getting married on the Island it is a special place to her and she wanted to bring her fiance there for their engagement session.  At 8:30am, we walked to work by meeting Travis+Racheal at the boat docks, and were blessed with a perfect morning for shooting.  Here are a few of our favorites from their session.  Stay tuned as we will be showing off a Guestbook featuring their shoot in the near future! Here are the images!










Albums - Nashville Wedding Photography

When the mail courier drops off a package from our album company at our studio doorsteps, we kinda feel like it's our birthday and we're seeing our birthday cake for the first time with all the glowing candles.   We can't wait to see what's inside, it's exciting to see a bride's labor of love, her wedding day, recorded in an heirloom quality album.

We always seem to get alot of great response from brides who get to actually see and touch the albums in our studio.  Our albums come in all different sizes, have over 30 different cover options, and each comes with a minimum of 20 sides to an album.  All of our albums are custom designed through a collaborative effort with each client.  

We wanted to show off one of our albums here so you can get a feel of what we like.  Big images, negative space, details, clean layouts, and we love one BIG image across an entire spread.  We love that our albums are heirloom quality and they will withstand the test of time.  We think the design of the pages should as well.

The 10"x15" album below, is crafted of genuine leather, has black gilded edging and is designed with 40 sides... here are a few example layouts from the album:
