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, so you don't have to worry about a thing! I travel virtually 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.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

My clients typically spend $3500-$4500 on a full day experience with me. It includes so much more than just the photographs- you can find out more on my website!

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.

5 Real Recommendations

Having Andrea at Lume Photography shoot my destination wedding in Chachagua Costa Rica was pure joy. Andrea scouted out secluded areas for our first look photos, captured the earthy vibe of our outdoor ceremony, and the fun of our reception. We also received many "bonus" pictures of wildlife and plants that were abundant at the ecolodge.

Andrea reminded me to take the time to look around, breathe, and take things in during the whirlwind on our wedding day; advice that was highly appreciated. The photos speak for themselves; they are breathtaking and vibrant. My partner and I feel so blessed Read More to have had the creative eye of an artist looking through the camera lens. I have nothing but good things to say about the Lume Photography experience. It is the right choice for creative people with an eye for details and lovers of the natural world.

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 Read More photographer, but we also made a lifelong friend along the way.

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!
