Contact Andrea Brandt

Hi, I'm Andrea, elopement, wedding and couples photographer based in the beautiful state of Michigan, traveling everywhere to document stories of love. I specialize in intimate, natural photography for free-spirited couples in Michigan and all over the world. I want you to have the most amazing experience with me, the wedding day of your dreams, and incredible photographs that tell your love story authentically.  
I'm married and currently reside in SE Michigan, in a small house surrounded by nature. I have two kids, two dogs, two cats, and a horse. I love hiking, authentic Mexican food, and craft beers.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I'm located in SE Michigan, and I photograph weddings anywhere in Michigan's Lower Peninsula at no extra cost. Locations outside of Michigan's Lower Peninsula are subject to a flat travel fee based on location. I travel anywhere in the world. Contact me for more info!

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I've been in business since 2011, and I've photographed over 100 weddings myself.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

My style is intimate, adventurous, and natural.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I like to meet everyone I work with so we can get to know each other. We can grab a beverage at your favorite spot, or if that's not possible, meet by video call (I use Zoom).

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

My husband and I eloped in Arizona, stayed a week, then came home and had a backyard reception. It was amazing- we did what we wanted, and avoided all the stress of putting on a big traditional wedding. Our ceremony was incredible- it was just us, the officiant, and the photographer. We were surrounded by epic views of nature, and it felt like the universe was there to witness our union. I wasn't worried about having to stand up in front of a hundred guests, so I was able to relax and be in the moment. It was incredible.  
I'm passionate about telling couples to do what feels right for you when it comes to your wedding! You don't have to follow the rules! You don't have to do things a certain way just to make everyone else happy! This is your day- it's your moment! Don't make it stressful. Make it amazing! Make it unforgettable.
