WEDDING INFO & PRICES
A wedding photography experience like no other
My approach to wedding photography isn't based on shot lists, staged photos, or portraits of people smiling at the camera. I focus on the real, raw moments and emotion that make your story unique. The big events are important to document, but so are the in-between moments and unexpected instances. So you end up with a collection of amazing, meaningful photographs that tell the story of your day as it actually happened.
You can relax and focus on what matters- each other. When you look at your photos, even years from now, you'll experience the feelings and emotions of the moment as it’s captured in the image, forever.
This is about more than just pretty pictures. It’s about you having an unforgettable wedding day, and actually being present in the moment. Sharing and celebrating together, with family and friends, without feeling rushed, pressured, or like you have to pretend to be anything you’re not. We’ll start by working together to plan your wedding day timeline so that you can relax and enjoy your day. I’ll guide you through the experience and what to expect. We’ll get to know each other, before my camera ever comes out, so I can tell your story with your trust. I want to be able to capture it with honesty and intention, so your photos are truly, uniquely YOURS.
I’ll create an environment that allows you to connect with each other and feel closer. Not like two people in the spotlight, performing for the camera. You can be yourselves and focus on what matters- each other. Your connection is unlike any other. Let’s capture that in amazing images that you can FEEL. Images that draw you in and make your heart beat faster. Your love story is worth it.
What makes you different than all the other wedding photographers out there?
I’m not interested in working off of a shot-list. I want to capture images of real moments and real emotions. And I want to create an environment where you can feel safe to truly connect with each other.
It's very important to me that you are able to savor every moment of your wedding day. I don't want you to feel rushed or stressed at any time. That's why I'll be your guide and partner throughout your experience with me. I'll show you how to make the most of your wedding day so you can just let things happen naturally and focus on the important things.
Do you only photograph outdoor weddings?
No matter who you are or where you’re from, nature is good for your soul. I'll always recommend we do photos of just the two of you in a wild, untamed location if possible. But what matters most is you and your love story, so I’ll use whatever the current surroundings are like, looking for beautiful light and mood to capture your story.
Do you do family and wedding party portraits, too?
Yes! I think they are important, because when else are all these people who are close to you going to be in one place, all looking their best? However, this isn’t my main focus so I’ll work with you to get these planned out ahead of time to make sure they go fast and easy on your wedding day. Besides, everyone would much rather be celebrating than spend unnecessary time stuck posing for the camera.
“Our experience working with Andrea from the beginning planning of our wedding to the wedding day itself was a DREAM! We were so comfortable working with her that it honestly felt like we had known her for years. She was extremely accommodating and her work is breathtaking. My favorite thing throughout our whole experience was that during the craziness of our wedding day, she made sure that my husband and I had time completely to ourselves to talk and take in all of the amazingness of our day. I can’t imagine working with anyone else. I’m so happy to say that not only did we have a fantastic photographer, but we also made a lifelong friend along the way.” -Martyna Reilly | Detroit, Michigan
