WELCOME

I'm Andrea, and I'm not your average wedding photographer. :)

I'm the best wedding photographer in Michigan - well, the universe (my mom told me so). Haha! But really, I'm not your typical photographer. I do things a little differently. My style is a mix of documentary (photojournalism) and fine-art photography. I focus more on the moments that tell the story of your wedding and your relationship, not awkward posed or staged photos.

The best way to get to know me and how I'm different (in a good way) is to scroll down and read all the information on this website. You can find pricing info, how I photograph a wedding day, frequently asked questions, and so much more. Please dig in!

CONNECT

If you like what you see here and think I could be a good fit, reach out and let's set up a time to get together! If it's possible, I'd love to meet you in person (beers? coffee? whiskey shots? your favorite beverage is on me!) and if not, we can set up a time for us all to meet over a video chat (wine/kids/pets welcome!). We can get to know each other and hang out for a bit while going over questions and details.

I take a limited number of weddings each year, so it's important that we're all on the same page and a god fit. :) Once we've met and everyone is in agreement, we'll start the booking process- you'll read and sign a photography agreement, then place your retainer fee- and then your photograph is reserved!

RELAX

Once you've booked with me, you can sit back and relax! I'll be in contact with you a lot, to go over everything you need to know to make sure you don't need to stress about your photography. I'm only a phone call, text, or email away, and I try to always respond to everyone within 24 hours.

We'll work together to plan your timeline, so that there's enough time to get all those amazing photographs you see all over my website & social media. If you feel nervous or anxious in front of a camera, no worries! You'll find out that my style is so easy-going and different from what you expect that you won't have to stress about it at all!

What are you waiting for? Let's get this thing started!

IS MY STYLE FOR YOU?

AUTHENTIC

My wedding photography is based on capturing stories and events as they unfold, naturally. I love moments that are unscripted. I want you to feel completely free to be yourselves, no matter what. I don't believe in photo-shopping people to look skinnier or younger, but I do believe in using creativity and artistry in-camera to make the best photos I can.

I can't promise you perfect or perfectly composed photographs- but I can promise you that I put all of my heart and soul into my work. Although it might not be perfect sometimes, it's always unique, it's always real, and it's always meaningful!

DOCUMENTARY

I'm a documentary wedding photographer, with an artistic flair. When capturing a wedding day, I spend most of the time creatively documenting things as they happen, with little or no interference. For group portraits I like to keep it simple and natural. For couples portraits, I provide direction to create beautiful portraits that aren't awkward or stiff.

I focus on the moments, the interactions, and the elements that tell the story of your day. You won't see staged photos of your wedding dress, your bouquet, or your rings off of your fingers, because I'd rather capture these details as part of your story. Besides, your dress will always look it's best when you're actually wearing it.

CONNECTION

The connection between two people is something that I love to capture in photos. There's this special energy- this intense emotional charge, and I love it when that comes out in my images. I love photos that make me feel something, and if I feel it, then I can't imagine what it must feel like to you!

It's important that we get to know each other on a personal level. I don't want to be just "the photographer" to you. I want to be on more of a "friends" level- this is the only way you'll trust me enough to allow me in to your space and create the best images with you.

Andrea did such a wonderful job capturing our wedding day memories. I can't thank her enough for even spending time outside in the rain to capture the most beautiful pictures. I am constantly getting praise for how beautiful and wonderful it looked. I am so grateful for the time she spent with us and so many beautiful pictures to choose from. Thank you Andrea!
