Rockhill Studio // Mackinac Island Wedding Feature, Mission Point Wedding

Mackinac Island Destination Wedding Photography Feature

One super special wedding we had the privilege of photographing last summer was Lindsey and Conner's sweet family tying the knot at Mackinac Island's Mission Point Resort.  We blogged this wedding before (if you scroll past entries you'll see it!) and I am SO happy to have this wedding featured on Big Love Small Weddings today!  From their fudge cake to the carriage ride around the pretty spots on the island, this wedding was everything an intimate destination wedding (for them!) could be.  Northern Michigan is so beautiful and Mackinac Island just provided the absolute perfect backdrop for their nautical themed wedding.

Rockhill Studio // St. Augustine, FL Destination Engagement Photographer, H+J

We travel to Florida A LOT.  Maybe not as much as some people, but I swear we are there at least once a year.  We've been to several areas of the state, but a favorite of ours is the St. Augustine area.  I love the history of it (if you really get to know me, you'll know that I'm an American History enthusiast) and of course is just really really cool.  While the couple is planning their Michigan wedding for next winter, they are currently...

Rockhill Studio // Escanaba Wedding Photographer, A+S

Summer in Northern Michigan is absolutely spectacular.  It's the *perfect* temperature, low humidity (I mean, for the most part!) with endless beaches and water, pine forests, and much to see and do.  So summer in Michigan is the perfect place for a wedding.  But, as much as you try and plan out every detail of the wedding day, you also have to plan for rain.  And that's what Rae and Steve had to contend with.  Rain.  And LOTS of...

Rockhill Studio // Drummond Island Wedding, Bailey + Ty

Bailey and Ty's wedding on Drummond Island this past summer was like a wonderful family party.  Partly because they have ties to Drummond Island so it was like seeing all the family members come back home for a celebration.  And partly because their families and wedding party were SO FUN!  The couple got ready at an intimate little church on the island (and if you've ever been to Drummond Island, it's an amazing spot with beautiful scenery and lots of outdoor adventures...and not a whole lot of population, so everything has that small town charm to it that only added...

Rockhill Studio // Rock Island Illinois Wedding, Andria + Jim

Andria and Jim are quite possibly the most perfect couple you'd want to meet.  They are the kind of couple you want to just hang out with and have fun.  So sweet and kind and just amazing humans.  After getting to know them better for our engagement session, my excitement for their wedding was easily doubled!  I knew it was going to be a fun one...we were able to travel down to the Illinois/Iowa boarder for...

Rockhill Studio // All About Album Options

You guys know how much I love our albums.  I did a whole other blog post on why you SHOULD choose an album for your wedding (some packages include one and you can always add on an album - or two - to any package, at any time).  You can check that blog post out HERE.  It goes into much more detail about the albums themselves and what makes them so special.  If you are just getting familiar with the option of including a custom wedding album...

Rockhill Studio // Marquette Wedding Photographer, Jocelyn + Tanner

Jocelyn and Tanner.  One of the most perfect couples ever. I first met this couple when I photographed her twin sister's wedding (which was SO perfect and amazing in itself!)  I love Jocelyn's family so I absolutely jumped for joy that I would be working with them again!  We had chatted about doing this couple's engagement session on Mackinac Island and...

Rockhill Studio // Grand Rapids Wedding Photographer, Gina + Jake

If I asked you to close your eyes and picture a gorgeous bride, beaming with happiness, on a beautiful summer day, I'm pretty sure you would be picturing Gina.  She was the picture perfect bride, and along with her now husband, made for an incredible wedding day!  Their wedding, held on a windy and warm summer day in beautiful Grand Rapids, Michigan, was...

Rockhill Studio // Marquette Wedding Photographer, Autumn + Jeff

Autumn and Jeff.  I adore this couple!  They are both archeologists (I mean, how amazing is that?!) and I love the details from that they incorporated into their wedding.  It was a rainy, early summer day in the Upper Peninsula.  But that didn't matter...we were loaded up with our umbrellas and this couple was so in love, I don't think they even noticed the rain!  After the bride finished getting ready...

Rockhill Studio // Let's Bee Together Engagement Feature

I'm so happy for this couple...TODAY is their wedding day, and perfect timing for their snowy engagement session to be featured on Let's Bee Together!!  We had an amazing time wandering around the snowiest spots in Marquette, MI.  Northern Michigan is always cold and snowy in February, but we had such an amazing day for our session with the lake effect snow bands coming in and out.  Click HERE to view more of this feature!!

Rockhill Studio // Traverse City Wedding Photographer Magazine Feature

Earlier this year while we were getting prepared to photograph Christy and Mike's wedding day, I got a call from the editor of the MiBrew magazine, a publication put on by the Michigan Brewers Guild.  The editor said they were doing a feature on the bride (Christy) and was wondering if I'd be up for using one of my images from the wedding day as their magazine cover.  

ABSOLUTELY!

This couple is very enthusiastic about craft beer, and it was fitting that on the wedding day, we went to a local brewery for a quick drink, getting some pictures with the couple and their wedding party.  It made the perfect backdrop for shooting the cover of the magazine!  I was thrilled for this amazing couple and the opportunity to have their big day featured in such an amazing way!! 

Much thanks to MiBrew magazine and this couple for the incredible opportunity!!

Rockhill Studio // Emma + Matt, Michigan to Minnesota Destination Wedding

The best thing in the world is when clients turn friends.  I've had the immense pleasure of photographing the Lemanski family numerous times starting in the fall of 2015 when I photographed Matt's sister and her fiancé for their engagement session.  Soon after that session, Emma and Matt got engaged and I was beyond thrilled to also book them for their wedding in Minnesota for...
