YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER AND SPIRIT GUIDE
Hi, I'm Andrea
I'm a Michigan elopement photographer and destination wedding photographer based near Detroit. My mission is to reveal the magic of the connection you share as a couple in love, and to tell your story through meaningful photos. I want you to feel free to be yourselves and to fall in love all over again (and again).
I truly believe the best way to start to connect to the magic is to get away from the distractions of daily life. Get lost in the wilderness. Feel the earth beneath your feet and wind in your hair. By bringing yourselves back to nature, you can open your mind and energy to possibilities. You're in a neutral state of mind, able to relax and let go of expectations. Let me take you to a wild place and show you exactly what I'm talking about!
My wedding was absolutely amazing. My husband, Scott, and I tried to plan a traditional wedding, but it just didn’t feel like US. We cringed at the thought of wasting so much money on a bunch of stuff that only lasts one day. Plus all the material waste a traditional wedding produces. And we’re both introverts- so the thought of being the center of attention and having to be “on” all day was just terrifying!
We decided to do things our own way. We both love being outside in the wilderness, travelling to new places, and connecting with the earth. After talking about what our dream wedding would be like, we decided to travel to Sedona, Arizona and get married there at an energy vortex. It was just the two of us, our officiant, a bunch of giant, red rocks, and the sky above. Maybe a few lizards to witness. It was INCREDIBLE! We were both able to relax, be ourselves, and savor every minute of it.
After my own experience, I’ve become obsessed with helping others have that same feeling about their own wedding day.
WHY DO I CARE SO MUCH?
Every couple deserves to have amazing, meaningful photos that they can look at and be taken back to that moment in time. To be able to feel the same powerful emotions and intense love even when years have passed. I've learned so much about how delicate life is, and how nothing is guaranteed. If you've been lucky enough to find your soulmate, you should cherish and celebrate your love now, because you never know what tomorrow will bring.
Your experience with me will be unlike any other that you may have had with a photographer. We’re going to get to know each other first, before I ever get my camera out. The more we talk and hang out outside of taking pictures, the better your photos will be. You’ll feel way more comfortable- like having a good friend hanging around- who happens to have a camera. You’ll be able to relax, open up, and let me capture intimate moments without feeling nervous or anxious. And in the end, you’ll have extraordinary photos that truly capture your connection and story.
