My work is about authentic moments and capturing the raw energy + connection between two people in love.
I do this through documentary style, artistic wedding photography with a raw, sometimes moody, sometimes dark, natural approach for clients who want authenticity and creativity in their images.
I am fascinated by life, nature, human connection, and the little moments that speak volumes. I work with couples who value photography, have a flare for adventure and want their photographs to reflect who they really are and what their love is all about.
I would love to hear more about your story!

warm summer nights + bonfires.
dogs. And Cats. Ferrets. Pretty much all animals. I have a horse named Scarlett, and she's a Norwegian Fjord Horse.
meeting new people and hearing their stories.
minimalism. I've found that focusing less on stuff and more on making awesome memories, the better I feel.
experiencing the world + being surrounded by nature.
making great memories with my family and friends.
My husband and I eloped in Sedona, Arizona. We came back home and had a party in our backyard. It was amazing and just the way we wanted it.
My ancestry is Norwegian and Swedish. I'm sure that means I am a viking.
I have some kind of obsession with rocks and trees.
I grew up in the Detroit area, but when I was in high school I moved to Traverse City and lived there for 8 years.
I have two kids- my wild daughter, Natalie, and quiet son, Evan.
people who are racist, judgmental, or intolerant.
heavy traffic and long lines.
roller coasters. I get really bad motion sickness! But I love to watch them.
any kind of violence towards animals or other people.
mosquitoes, ticks, angry wasps.
flights that are cancelled or delayed. Also, airplane food.
when people don't return my emails or respond at all. :(

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!

I could not have asked for a better photographer or experience! Andrea is patient and a joy to work with while navigating me through the planning process. All of my guests complimented her work and remarked how wonderful she was the day of the wedding. I consider her work event journalism/art. She captured our day beautifully with candid shots and details that would not have crossed my mind. Thank you, Andrea!
