Upper Peninsula Adventure Session | Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, MI | Rachel + Jeff

An Upper Peninsula Adventure Session on Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore by Northern Michigan Elopement Photographer: ME+HIM Photography

Northern Michigan’s upper peninsula is filled with incredible spots for an adventurous engagement session, intimate wedding or elopement. And this incredible spot on the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is definitely up there. This upper peninsula location is easily one of the most adventurous elopement and engagement session spots in the Midwest and we’ve been wanting to shoot an adventure session up there ever since we visited there on a hiking trip earlier this year. When planning a northern Michigan elopement or wedding one of the most difficult things to do is find the perfect elopement spot. We’ve been photographing elopements in the upper peninsula for years now and we have tons of great spots like this in our pockets all over the upper peninsula.

When Rachel & Jeff contacted us they said basically “we don’t really know where we want to have our session, but we know we want it to be adventurous.” We knew this was the perfect spot for them. These two are goofy, hilarious and genuine. We talked about everything from our childhoods to personality theory to how adorable Jeff is…and we all agreed. Pretty adorable.

This set of Dunes is located on the eastern side of the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. It’s one of the most special places in all of the Midwest. The grand banks of the dunes reach heights of over 300 ft and you can see for miles on Lake Superior. They’re really unlike any dune system in the world.
