Prom Celebrations

Last weekend May 22, 2010 was Mackinac Island’s Prom and they joined with Beaver Island

and Grand Maris for there Prom celebration at Mission Point Resort on beautiful Mackinac Island.

You can’t ask for a better way to make your entrance but from a horse and buggy.

As you can see the weather was close to perfect and a great night was starting.

We spent about an hour taking photographs at the Gazebo and having some teenage fun.

What is a Prom?

A Prom means a Promenade Concert, or a concert where part of the audience stands in a “promenade” area of the hall.

Weather your prom is on Mackinac Island or anywhere,  your memories or priceless at this time of your life.  Having this time documented in picture form is memories, memories, memories.

I know all the kids had great time at there prom and wish them all the beat in there future endeavors.

When I left at 9:30 they were dancing the night away.


The Bachelor Party Photography

You must be very careful as a photographer when considering photographing a bachelor party outing.  I have photographed many through the years and so far I have enjoyed them all.  I just returned from a weekend bachelor party in Grand Rapids. It was a super weekend.  Started Friday afternoon in the backyard of the grooms house playing Frisbee and Baseball, then to a baseball game at 5th 3rd Ballpark Friday night.   The weather was perfect for outside activities.

The Groomsmen

Saturday morning tee-off time at 9:30am was just the start of the day.

The Ball and Chain.

The boys had 3 trick golf balls, (1) a smoke ball, (2) a streamer and (3) a sand ball.  When you hit the sand ball it never moved in a straight line.  Great gags. Click on the link below to watch the smoke ball.

Engagement Photography Sessions

One of the most significant events in any woman’s life is her engagement, a time when she accepts a proposal of marriage from her beloved. As a sign of his love and commitment to her, she can expect to receive an engagement ring, a sparkler that she will cherish the rest of her life.

Engagement Ring

Your engagement photography session with your photographer should be giggles of fun.  It’s a time that you can reflect on your courtship and the personality’s you two have created together.  I so much enjoy photographing couples that are ready to just have fun and let the camera work with your relationship.   The time we spend together during this session helps me learn more about you two so I can better understand your inspirations for your Wedding day.  All the decisions you make  planning your special day, your photographer is the one who will capture all the beauty, your  emotions, the romance,  joy and the art of your Wedding day that will last for a life time.  Your engagement pictures can be the start of the your celebration for your family and friends.

Engagement Photoshoot

80% of the Weddings I photograph are destination Weddings so most of the engagement sessions are a place that most Bride and Grooms have never been before. It’s so important the the photographer know the venue so you feel as relaxed as possible.  The photographer should set the mood to help the couple feel like there at home. I travel all over Michigan but mostly the Bride & Groom will travel north to  Traverse City, Petoskey, Mackinac Island, Northern Michigan, to take advantage of the Great Lake beaches and sunsets.
