DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER IN MICHIGAN
FOR THE DREAMERS, THE REBELS, AND THE ADVENTURERS
FEATURED STORIES OF LOVE AND ADVENTURE
Hi, I'm Andrea...
My work is all about real moments, connection, emotion, and authenticity. I don't do things the traditional way- awkward posed photos are definitely not my thing! I value photographs that make me feel something.
Take a look around my website, and you'll get a good idea of what my style is like. You'll see photos that are emotional, creative, sometimes moody, sometimes dark, but always authentic.
IS MY STYLE FOR YOU?
My 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!
My style is more photo-journalistic wedding photography. At weddings, I spend most of the day creatively documenting things as they happen, with little or no interference. The only exception to that is for the couple's portraits and the group portraits- yes, I do believe these are important, although I don't do elaborate setups and stiff poses. For family and wedding party portraits, I have a great process that streamlines everything so we can get them done quickly and get back to the celebration.
You won't see photos of your wedding dress hanging on a hanger, or your rings off of your fingers, because I'd rather be focusing on the moments that are happening all around me. You never know when something magical is going to happen! Besides, your dress will always look it's best when you're actually wearing it.
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!
Besides the two of you, it's important that you have a connection with me. By getting to know my you (and you getting to know me) really well before we even start taking photos, it allows me to be much more than a service provider to you, which translates to better images. Each time we connect, it fosters a higher level of trust- and that's so important for me to get the best images.
Real words from actual clients!

Andrea was unreal awesome - so helpful, accommodating, artistic, professional, and flexible. My husband, family and I loved her and don't have one negative thing to say. She went above and beyond what I would have ever expected and I have very high expectations :-) I will love these photos for a lifetime - thank you Andrea!

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!
