Photos at a Vineyard! Lisa + Ken!

Michigan Vineyard + Winery Engagement Photos!

I knew that Michigan had a few vineyards + wineries, but I have never been to one until last week! Lisa + Ken are huge wine enthusiasts and they found the perfect location for their engagement photos…in a vineyard! I can’t wait til their wedding next year…when the amazing chefs of Truffleberry Market will be catering their food service!

Tabor Hill Vineyard + Winery

They chose Tabor Hill Vineyard + Winery in Buchanan, Michigan and I couldn’t be more excited! One thing I love about being an engagement photographer…is the opportunity to see new places! And it doesn’t get any more fresh than midwest vineyard!

We started their engagement photo session with some old wine barrels and an old red truck at Tabor Hill!

Found some space between the winery buildings at Tabor Hill

Walking on a path with Michigan vineyards in front of them-

We definitely don’t have rolling hills with vineyards in Illinois. So I made sure to take advantage of the Michigan topography.

I stepped back to capture this dramatic landscape vineyard photo – Lisa + Ken are sitting on a patch of grass-

Enjoying a moment on the ground together- I was able to use some of grape vines to frame the couple for this engagement picture.
