I have for the first time found what I can truly love–I have found you. You are my sympathy–my better self–my good angel–I am bound to you with a strong attachment. I think you good, gifted, lovely: a fervent, a solemn passion is conceived in my heart; it leans to you, draws you to my centre and spring of life, wrap my existence about you–and, kindling in pure, powerful flame, fuses you and me in one. – Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
Backstory: In October of 2016 I had the incredible opportunity of studying under two of the most influential photographers in my life- Gabe McClintock and Fer Juaristi. Gabe is from Canada and is known for his passionate, intimate and just absolutely awesome photos of couples, mostly in epic locations. Fer is from Mexico and is know for his profound compositions and storytelling ability. Learning from them both was a dream come true. It was also my first time visiting the Banff area- which is awe inspiring in itself! I flew by myself to Banff and staying in Canmore, right outside of the park. The mountains are absolutely breathtaking. You can see more photos from my recent trips to Banff and Jasper National Park here and here. These photos are ones that I took while I was learning from Gabe and Fer. It was so wonderful to have this couple come out and let us do photos of them- they are so sweet and genuinely in love. It was fairly cold and windy outside, and they had no problem keeping each other warm, as you’re about to see.
Hello! Thanks for your interest in my work! My name is Andrea and I’m the photographer behind Lume Photography. My work often takes me to amazing and beautiful destinations, and I love documenting the details of each place in photographs. Through my lens, I find magic in any location or place. My images are rich in color, texture, and mood. I love nature, going off the beaten path, and experiencing the raw beauty of the elements.
I love to travel and expand my horizons. Adventure Sessions are amazing because they combine two of my favorite things- adventure, and capturing the connection between two people. They’re an experience that I highly recommend- a 2 to 3 hour photography session that we spend exploring a beautiful destination. Lume Photography is located near Detroit, Michigan but I travel pretty much anywhere. Whether you’re planning a destination wedding, an elopement, or just want some amazing photos that document your story in an incredible location, I’m game and would love to accompany you! I’ve had the pleasure of capturing stories in Sedona, Arizona; Banff, Alberta; Colorado Springs; Ontario; and Florida. This year my work is taking me all the way to Scotland!
