Lighthouse in Saint Joseph, MI

As I previously wrote in the post “The Allure of the Lighthouse,” people are drawn to lighthouses making them the epitome of photographic subjects in the Great Lakes region. Of these, the lighthouse in Saint Joseph, Michigan is among the most photographed. Photos of crashing waves in the fall and layers of ice in the winter annually make national, and at times international, news.

Q: What makes SWMI special for fall weddings?
A:The diversity of the area is what makes SWMI so special in the fall. You can take pictures at the beach and then within 5 or 10 minutes you can be on a wooded path surrounded by beautiful fall foliage, or out in a vineyard with golden vines, or an apple orchard. There are just so many options that it makes it incredibly easy to get beautiful unique fall photos without having to spend your day driving from one spot to another.
