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 all travel fees are included in each photography package, so you don't have to worry about a thing! I travel anywhere in the world.

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 by 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.

I loved having Andrea as our wedding photographer. She was beyond reliable and was a natural! She even offered and came to our rehearsal to scope out the area the night before. She went above and beyond, always making us feel excited for our wedding day and helped us to feel natural during our pictures. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for an awesome, kind, helpful and creative photographer!

I honestly cannot say enough about how happy we were with Andrea as our wedding photographer! She was accessible to us ahead of time, got to know us and helped us to organize photography into our wedding timeline so that on the day of, everyone was on the same page and we did not have to worry about anything. She took time to go to the locations ahead of time so that she would be familiar with the lighting and all of the best spots for photos. We have an amazing selection of the candid moments that make up our day, plus portraits. Our photos transport me back to that day, and that is so Read More much more than I was looking for. I am so glad Andrea captured our day for us so that we can treasure these memories for forever!

Andrea was AMAZING. My (now) wife and I eloped in the Rocky Mountains and wanting everything to be as perfect as possible, we were both a little nervous going in. We met up with Andrea the day before and scoped out our location and immediately upon hanging out with her and seeing the location, all of our anxieties disappeared. Our wedding day was absolutely amazing and the pictures she took were phenomenal. She captured the emotions of the day with perfection and really did make the entire trip. We would definitely relive the day again with her by our side and HIGHLY recommend her to anyone.
