Belle Isle Boat House Spring Bridal Shoot - Detroit, MI

In May, I got the opportunity to photograph at the Belle Isle Boat House which simply put, is a historic gem. Belle Isle in general is a hidden treasure of Detroit. The island rests in the Detroit River, separating Michigan and Ontario, Canada. Along with the Boat House, it has other attractions including the Belle Isle Aquarium, nature center, and beautiful Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory. I’ve been to Belle Isle before with my good friend Nick to shoot for fun, but this time was a totally new experience!

The Boat House is 115 years old and currently being brought back to life with a big restoration project in the works. Like so many other locations on Belle Isle, it will make for a nice wedding venue. Each room you step into is filled with so much character and history. Imagine the possibilities!
