lume photography


Welcome to Lume Photography, where I document cherished moments through my lens and create lasting memories for you to treasure.

This is an experience that’s truly like no other.

Through my lens, I strive to capture the story of your wedding, engagement, or elopement, while highlighting the natural beauty that surrounds us.

I’m different than most photographers. My priority is creating an environment that’s relaxed, adventurous, and safe, where you can just be yourself and enjoy the moment. Together, we’ll capture your story in a creative way that feels authentic, intimate, and true to who you are as a couple.

Whether it’s exchanging vows next to a pristine lake or saying “I do” under a canopy of trees, I’ll help you every step of the way to create a unique and unforgettable experience that reflects your personalities and story.

Does any of this sound familiar?

If it does, then you’re in the right place!

  • You love the idea of a magical, romantic escape in nature vs. a big, traditional wedding, but don’t know how to plan.
  • Beautiful, meaningful photos are essential, but you’re not interested in fake, staged, or trendy pictures.
  • Planning a traditional wedding with all the stress, drama, and money wasted on stuff that’s used up in a day just doesn’t feel right for you.
  • Having an incredible, no-regrets experience and not having to worry or stress about photos sounds amazing.

Booking your experience with me means:

You don’t have to worry about your photos at all- what to do, how you look, how awkward you are, feeling pressured, or like you have to pose for the camera. I’ll show you how easy it is for us to create incredible photos – together – while we just hang out and have an amazing time!

You’ll be able to be fully present for every amazing moment, focus on what’s really important, and look back on your experience with no regrets.

Your photographs will be freaking amazing and in the future, when you’re going through your wedding album with your kids or grandkids, you’ll be able to re-experience it all again- the moments, the beauty, the feels!

How I’m different.

Hey, I’m Andrea – the girl with the camera! I’m not your average photographer – I’m a little weird (in the best way possible). When I think about the fact that I get to capture life’s most intimate and beautiful moments for a living, I still can’t believe it’s real.

I specialize in working with couples who share a deep appreciation for spirituality and nature. For me, it’s not just about finding a pretty spot to snap a few photos. It’s about cultivating an experience that touches your soul and leaves you with memories that will last a lifetime.

As a photographer, my creativity knows no bounds. I have a passion for capturing the natural beauty of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and channeling it into stunning imagery that will make your heart swell. Whether it’s a windswept beach or a hidden forest nook, I know all the best spots to make your photos truly magical.

So if you’re looking for more than just picture-perfect wedding photos, let’s chat. Let’s create a meaningful, powerful experience that captures the essence of your love story. Contact me now to learn more about my services!

Frequently asked questions

According to the Cambridge Dictionary, Lume means “flame” or “light”. Light is an important element in a photograph. :)

Yes, it’s just me and my camera. I’d love to be able to hang out as your friend, be a part of the day, celebrate with you, and disappear when needed. This allows me to capture all the authentic, natural, moments and emotions in photos that are meaningful to you. And you’ll love not feeling any pressure or expectations. When another photographer or assistant comes in, it takes away from that experience.

I only take a limited number of weddings & sessions per year, to ensure I can provide the best experience for each of my clients. So it’s important that we’re a good fit and I feel I’ll be able to do my best for you. For this reason, I like to schedule a call or video chat to get to know each other before I send any booking info to you.

Once we do that, and it seems we’ll be a good fit, I’ll email you everything you need to book with me. You’ll be able to go through some package options I’ll recommend and choose the one that you like most, and you can even customize your experience! From there you’ll read & sign a contract with all the details and terms, and pay a retainer to reserve your date in my calendar. It’s all done easily online!

My prices are an all-inclusive flat rate and include all travel costs, fees, and photographer expenses! So you don’t have to worry about any of that.

If there’s anyone who understands feeling awkward in front of a camera it’s me! Trust me when I say this is something you won’t have to worry about at all with me.

I am not a wedding planner. I will, however, give you ideas, referrals, help with your timeline – every step of the way, but (unless you book the all-inclusive elopement experience) you’ll need to make decisions, contact people, book your vendors, and make your own reservations.

If you’re interested in working with a professional planner, I can totally hook you up with a few referrals!

YES! I love all animals and have always had a special connection with them. Whether it’s a dog, cat, horse, bird, snake, etc- if you love them then I’m all in!

You’ll receive a link to a beautiful, private online gallery that you can easily share with anyone you’d like! The online gallery makes it simple to view and download all of your images and GIFs, and includes an online store where you can order gift prints, wall art, albums, and more!

*You will need a computer to download your photos in high-resolution. The gallery has limited capabilities on phones & tablets.

Definitely! Just ask and I’ll send you examples of full galleries that I’ve delivered to real clients so you can get a better idea of what that looks like.

Nope! Lume Photography has been around since 2011, and Lume Cannabis only since 2019. Although I have shopped there, lol! Their pet CBD is amazing, btw.
