HELLO AND WELCOME

I'm Andrea- adventurer, dreamer, and the photographer at Lume Photography!

I'm an easy-going nature lover who is obsessed with telling stories through photographs. I'm so thrilled you’re considering me for such an incredible day! The truth is your wedding is a once in a lifetime occasion - the two of you are about to start the most challenging, rewarding, exciting, life-changing experience of your lives together - and choosing someone to capture that day through photography is a big decision.

Its important you find someone whose work you LOVE - but its just as important you find someone who you like (and can trust to capture your story). After all - your wedding day is an amazing event that's only going to happen once! I'm a lover of adventures, a dreamer, an artist, and slightly addicted to chocolate. Give me a good photo spot and I can get lost for hours. I hope this guide gives you an idea of my style, and what Lume Photography is all about.

Andrea made us feel like we have known her forever, and even though she has the camera always on the ready, she never made us feel like she did. It was always such a relaxed, and enjoyable experience to be around her. She literally made me feel like a queen the day of, and all her pictures reflect that! She has that eye to see the beauty is everything, and you can tell she is so eager to share it❤️ thank you again for everything!! And believe me when I say I will recommend you to everyone I know in need!

Andrea is an incredible person and photographer, working with her is such a pleasure. Her unique style, experience, and personal touch that she brings to capturing moments is simply amazing. We just did our engagement photos with her this February and I cried for almost 5 minutes when we got them back. She did such an outstanding job that I am unable to choose a favorite, I absolutely love our engagement series and our families do too!!! Not only did she capture us and the moments we shared that day, but really captured us in our element and was able to express our love through photography.

Found Andrea & Lume Photography while randomly browsing Facebook for a style that was different. Her style was EXACTLY what I always dreamt of. We met up one day to just meet each other and feel it out and she could not have been any better. She is a soft, kind soul. She was funny and very easy to get along with. Her pricing is priced extremely well. We easily found interests we both had and knew we had to book her. We were never stressed to have our photo taken and very rarely did she make us pose for pictures. That is what we wanted. Something that seemed like it was taken from film..just life that just so happened to be photographed.

I’m not your traditional wedding photographer. I specialize in documentary and fine art wedding photos that are full of intimacy and emotion. The kind that give you goosebumps, make you laugh- or maybe even cry when you look through your wedding images. My style can be dark, moody, sometimes colorful, but always authentic. I capture lots of natural, candid moments mixed with intimate and creative couple’s portraits. I thrive when photographing weddings that are intimate, adventurous, non-traditional, and set in nature.

My favorite thing is capturing creative, intimate portraits of a couple in love. I want to tell the story of your connection through emotive, artistic photographs.

I take a photojournalistic approach at weddings- that is, I’m very “hands-off”. I prefer to tell the story of your day as it unfolds, naturally, without staged photos, props, and re-creating other photos. I focus on the moments, the relationships, the emotions, and the energy of the day. I’d much rather get a meaningful shot with people in it, than a photo of your rings propped up on a table, or details of your dress with it on you than a staged shot of it hanging from a tree branch on a hanger. I like to blend in at your wedding as unobtrusively as possible and would much rather be seen as another guest with a camera than “the photographer”. My style isn’t for everyone - and that’s okay!

Making sure your wedding day goes as smoothly and stress-free as possible is important to me, because when you’re relaxed and enjoying yourselves, it’s easier for me to work. So I take the time before your wedding to help you with your planning and photography timeline. When it comes to group portraits, I keep these simple, quick, and easy.

I only take a limited number of weddings each year, so it’s important that every client is a good fit and is excited to work with me.

* A face-to face pre-wedding consultation for us to get to know each other. It can be in-person, or by video call. This way we can make sure we’re a good fit and you can ask me anything you want!

ADD-ONS

I'd like to be able to tell the whole story of your wedding day- from the time you're getting ready to the excitement of the dance floor. Over the years I've found that for most weddings, from June through October, 8 hours is just enough, and that's what my prices are based on. That being said, every wedding is unique, and your needs may be different. That’s why I offer many ways to customize your experience. If your wedding is during the off-season, or you have different needs, or you’re just not sure- get in touch and I’ll be happy to help you figure out the perfect package for your needs.

TRAVEL OUTSIDE THE U.S.

inquire for rate

As you might see from my work and/or social media, I LOVE to travel! I have no problem accommodating weddings, elopements, portrait sessions, or to document your honeymoon or trip- within the U.S. or abroad. My travel rates are based on a flat fee that's basically just my at-cost expenses to travel (flights, car rental, and a comfortable place to stay).

I'd be happy to give you a quote if you let me know where we're going and when!

PORTRAIT SESSION

This is definitely not your typical portrait session. I want to tell your story in creative, natural images. We'll hang out for 90 minutes to 2 hours, and I'll tell your story through images while I guide you through the session, but with minimal, natural posing. The result is a collection of natural images that artistically document this time in your lives.

This is about you- your relationship, your connection, your love. Portrait sessions take place in a beautiful outdoor location, surrounded by nature- the wilder the better- or indoors in your own home or other rad indoor location, like an Airbnb. Locations within 3 hours of Detroit are included, otherwise nominal travel fees will apply. Perfect for engagements, adventure sessions, anniversaries, honeymoons, etc!

Includes:
- 1.5 to 2 hour session
- online gallery with 50+ final images
- web sized & high-resolution digital downloads with printing rights
- additional prints and products also available
- 1-year cloud backup.

SO WHAT'S NEXT?

I'm so happy you're considering me to photograph your story! The next step is to get on the phone for a quick call, to set up a time to meet. We can meet in-person, or by video (I use Zoom).

I only book a limited number of weddings each year, so it's important that I get to meet each couple, to make sure we're a good fit. Plus, you get to ask me anything, and we can go over all the details.

After we meet, you'll need to pay the $500 retainer fee to reserve your date, and sign a photography contract. Once those things are done, your date is reserved and we can all do a happy dance!
