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 weddings for 2018 and 2019.

Grand Hotel Wedding Photography, Mackinac Island

Getting SO excited for the 2018 wedding season to be here!  I love knowing the island so well, that I can sneak off on my bike to get photo's of our bride and groom riding in the wedding carriage and sharing a quick kiss!  SO SPECIAL!!!

We are nearly booked for 2018, and are starting to book into 2019.  If you'd like to chat with us, we'd love to hear from you!

I'm not a wedding coordinator, but I have been to a few weddings and have seen a lot of things that work, and a lot that don't. And while picking out the perfect shade of pink flowers is important, nothing is more important then planning your schedule. Because, for real, 90% wedding days run late and/or have hiccups along the way. And you'll feel it. Plan for some breathing room, your wedding day will pass by in the blink of an eye, and its most fun to document smiles, not stress!! Plan. Plan. Plan.
Side note: Today's photo was taken at one of my favorite venues to shoot, of one of my favorite brides I've worked with, during a quiet moment when she opened a letter from her love. ❤
Venue: Grand Hotel, Mackinac Island

Mackinac Island Elopement

My friends, we've all heard it said, but happiness really is a choice.

We poured our hearts into every job we shot in 2017 and gave it our all. And even though my eyes have been glued to the computer, and I'm exhausted down to my bone marrow, choosing happiness today is an easy thing to do.

So when your wedding day comes and you want warm and sunny, but you get freezing cold and rainy... choose happiness. And let the wind blow your dress around and then dance on the beach.

Thanks to Carole Erbel, and For the Love of Mackinac, for doing such a great job coordinating the day!!
