You are probably assuming my about me section will have a story about how I always wanted to be a photographer, I came out of the womb holding a camera, but that couldn’t be me. I stumbled into it, literally. I had no plans to become a wedding photographer. I was either going to follow my dad’s path and go to dental school, or become a social worker. But a freshman in college decided to shoot a few photos for fun, and now over eight years and almost 200 weddings later, I could not imagine myself doing anything else. This is my dream job!

I did not know Abbey from Adam, but booking with her is one of the best decisions I have ever made. She is personal, hilarious, professional, and great at her job. You need someone kicked out of the picture? Abbey is on it. You need a picture of a child laughing? Abbey’s got you. You need a picture that you didn’t know you needed? Abbey took it. She will make you feel comfortable during the entire session. Not only is she good at editing her photos, but she is also great at positioning everyone for the perfect picture. She has some tricks up her sleeve that will leave you laughing and giggling for days. During my husband and I’s engagement session, she told my husband to “whisper his favorite thing about me in my ear.” Of course my husband says something to get me laughing and make my cheeks bright red (no blush needed for this session). Overall Abbey is amazing and I cannot imagine another person taking our pictures. She will be our forever photographer!

I have been putting my decade plus of expertise into each and every one of you, from your morning mimosa to the last dance of the night. Wether we’re here in Ohio or deep in the mountains, I’ll follow where your heart leads you. Wedding days can be fleeting no matter how you spend them and you deserve someone who builds slow moments and quick thinking into the timeline. When it's all said and done, your photos will gift you the ability to be right back in those memories and reliving the joys from the day it became the two of you, forever.

Awarded Best of Zola
Ashley was our wedding photographer and I can’t recommend her enough. She was fantastic to have as such an important part of our big day. We did an engagement shoot nine months before the wedding to get to know each other and she was so much fun. She’s so sweet and easy to get along with. We received our engagement pictures back and were amazed. Fast forward to our wedding and we were even more grateful to have her. There were a couple hiccups with getting all of our decor there early enough for pictures, but she took it all in stride, was flexible and still was able to get all of the pictures we wanted. The weather was also a little questionable and we weren’t sure if we would be able to do pictures outside like planned, but Ashley did an amazing job with what she had to work with and was able to get beautiful pictures. If you want someone to help your day run smoothly and provide you beautiful pictures to look back on, Ashley is your girl!

  • Serves Alpena, MI

Hello there! I'm Andrea, owner of Amative Creative, and every weekend we're so blessed to be able to tell the love stories of so many amazing couples. Like many others in this industry might say, we simply adore weddings. But what makes us a little different is our entire brand is centered around telling love stories specifically curated to reflect your vision and aesthetic. "Amative" means to be prone to love, so as you can see, we want nothing more than to tell your love story! But what makes us truly unique is that we understand every love story looks different. And we personalize every aspect of how we document your wedding day!

Awarded Best of Zola
It gives me no pleasure giving Andrea a less than perfect review, because her pictures are indeed gorgeous and she is a very talented editor and artist, and I do love my photos. With that, there were some things during the process I wish were more transparent and I thought others should be informed. She does not honor her contract at all/it needs to be updated. My signed contract stated I’d receive min 3 previews within 3 days of my wedding. I waited a full week until contacting her; she stated that the contract was “old” and didn’t account for editing…again so update it. OR at the very least admit and let me know you will not be meeting the terms of the agreement and tell me when I can expect them (she didn’t). I had no reason to believe I wouldn’t get previews for over 2 weeks and it was incredibly disappointing/frustrating. Additionally, the photos she chose to include were not what I’d hoped, I had several pictures of my dj but zero of my family…like why? Additionally, 3 days before my wedding she texted me asking if it was okay for her to send someone else to do my wedding. Now, I am understanding of illness and family issues but if you really needed to sub my wedding, call me and and explain. But to put the decision on a CLIENT and ask if they are okay with you not coming as expected put me in a tough position, not to mention a stress I didn’t need before my wedding. The contract also stated I’d get the full gallery by the one month mark, and after I didn’t get the previews until almost then, I knew that timeline was laughable. I was provided no communication as to when I might expect them just that she was “unusually” busy (clearly overbooked, admitting 5 weddings a weekend, etc) Or, you can stalk her IG stories for her queue but that just shows you where you are in line, not when you can expect anything. Eventually I received my photos 16weeks after my wedding. While they were absolutely stunning, I was still a little upset about little details ignored (leaving scratches when I specifically asked to have them concealed out) or photos that were only provided in black and white, when I wanted color or the option for both. I’ll wrap up by saying yes her photos are amazing but go in aware deadlines won’t be met or communicated and you’re not guaranteed to actually have Andrea herself (I’m sure her whole team is amazing, shout out to Jo!) it’s clear anyone on her team is interchangeable. If you’re not bothered by any of that she’s amazing!

I have been a photographer for 8 years. Throughout my time as a photographer I’ve captured clothing, models, and memories. I shifted from corporate shootings to families and weddings because it gave me this warm fuzzy feeling when I edited my couples and families photos. Don’t be afraid to reach out to me and ask about my photography style, my editing style, or my favorite restaurant! I highly recommend scheduling a free consulting session!

Hi, I’m Isaac. In my world, light is everything. The cool ambient hues at dawn, hinting at what the day may bring. Golden sun rays catching particles through a tree as friends gathers to celebrate. A Cotton candy sunset peppered by patio string-lights as a DJ plays my favorite song. We all have timeless memories logged in our minds. For me, they are based in a language of light. As a wedding photographer, this deep connection to special lighting helps me produce dynamic visual stories of romance, personality and beauty.

Awarded Best of Zola
We had an elopement at San Francisco City Hall and hired Love Knot Photography to take care of the photos and our social media videos. It was really great to work with someone so talented with a camera. My wife gets nervous when taking pictures and Isaac had a great personality and calm approach that really helped her enjoy the process. I think the photos of candids at the ceremony are so beautifully crafted it really shows how special of a moment it was for us. The portraits of the two of us, as well as my family that was there are really dear. I'm super beyond pleased with how everything turned out. Thank you!!

I am a storytelling and documentary elopement and wedding photographer based somewhat in Ludington, Michigan. I'm obsessed with nature, rocks, travel, and documenting everyday life. I love art & live music. I went to school for architecture and ended up obsessed with photography. I homeschool my kids and we spend most of our free time hopping from mountain bike parks to national parks to lakes between Michigan, Arkansas and Arizona and everywhere else we can.

Jessica Max captured our wedding day in the most spectacular fashion, we could tell she had recorded the most candid and genuine experiences of the day. This is what makes her work so unique from other artists. She is casual, comfortable, and very cool to work with. We are quite casual ourselves, and were able to trust her to do her job and our results were breathtaking. Her product has the quality of fine art and feels so effortless but the amount of thought and care she puts into her work is truly unmatched by most photographers. If you don't book with her, you're seriously missing out on the best quality product you could hope for!

Ever since childhood, I’ve been captivated by the power of photos and the stories they tell. Growing up, I’d lose myself in family photo albums, fascinated with freezing moments in time led me to photography, a medium that became my canvas for expressing emotions and creativity. What fuels my passion for wedding photography? It’s the profound belief in the power of love stories. In a world where adult milestones are fewer, the journey of marrying your best friend and soulmate stands out as a core memory. I find immense joy in capturing the moments when love, support, and celebration intertwine, creating memories that last a lifetime.

She is a precious person who goes above and beyond to make sure the client has exactly what they want and envision. Before booking with her, she made me a Pinterest board of what her vision was for our big day based on our venue parameters and our personal wishes. This extra detail that she chose to provide helped me to feel settled in my decision, trusting we had the same vision! Furthermore, she gets to know her clients on a personal level so she can write our story pictorially. She is incredible and gives her heart and soul to what she does!

I’m Tylee- a Michigan wedding photographer with a passion for marriage. As your photographer, I'll capture images that are timeless, romantic, and honestly illustrate your love for one another so that you will always remember exactly why you fell in love. Whether you're eloping just the two of you, or getting married in your favorite place with all your favorite people, I will capture the photos that will help you to cherish your marriage for a lifetime.

Tylee shot our wedding on July 17th, 2020. We wanted to write this review because we had the most amazing experience with her. We met Tylee right before we got engaged and knew we wanted her as our photographer. We booked her right away and had a blast doing our engagement shoot in the winter. We were one of the many COVID wedding couples which came with so much stress, but Tylee was a breath of fresh air for us. She made anything and everything happen for us. We had a very small, intimate, family only wedding at my husband’s parent’s house on Bostwick Lake. Tylee was so excited to shoot our day and made us feel so special. One of the things that we will be forever grateful for is that Tylee suggested that Matt and I plan some alone time on our wedding day. To be able to escape for a half hour or so to just enjoy the moment and enjoy being newly married. We ended up going on a canoe ride on the lake at sunset and it was probably our favorite moment of the day. Plus the photos she captured of it were PHENOMENAL!! We love you Tylee! Thank you again for everything you did for us! We can’t wait for more photoshoots down the road! Love, Matt and Emma DeVries

Are you frustrated with combing through page after page of the same old cliche'd wedding photos? Looking for something classic and timeless but with a bit of an edge? We got you. I've been creating wedding day memories for over a decade now. New Orleans. Chicago. Minneapolis. The PNW. NYC. We travel all over this country, and even internationally, when the right opportunity presents itself, documenting love stories for our amazing couples. Our goal with each new wedding, is not to be just good or “good enough”--the goal is to be world-class, one of the top wedding photography teams in the world. Each couple helps us accomplish this.

I haaaate having my photo taken. I was super anxious about the whole process going into it. It takes a certain amount of trust to let someone photograph you... Jay and his Bellocq team were A from start to finish. We were blown away by A) the sheer amount of photos given back (they don't cap their packages at certain photo counts) and B) how seamlessly the entire collection flowed together from start to finish. We couldn't have asked for more. We will definitely be re-booking them for our family photos (first baby on the way!!!) in the future. Jay is incredibly kind and fun to be around, and just puts you at ease. That is the first thing you'll notice when you meet. Can't recommend Bellocq enough!!!

Nelena and Dom took photos at my rustic/modern wedding at cider mill in Princeton, Illinois. Once the four of us met, my husband and I loved how easy it was to speak to Nelena and Dom and how they immediately understood where we were coming from. As introverts we wanted a photographer with a larger-than-life personality, someone who would find candid moments on our day and Andreoni Photography really brought the fun. I can’t stress enough how truly wonderful our experience was. The two of them worked so well together. They brought so much excitement and fun when capturing photos of our wedding party. Nelena and Dom were always so responsive to my many questions and concerns I had. I could expect a response from either of them within 24 hours and usually much quicker than that. The first time my now-husband and I saw the photos, we melted! We had a date night and snuggled up on the couch, and loaded the photos onto our big screen. It truly felt like we were back on our special day. We loved the unique poses and fun and intimate moments Andreoni photography captured. I had no idea our small town wedding could look so incredibly beautiful. The finished photos ooze class, sophistication and refinement.

Kaitlyn was an incredible photographer to work with! We did 2 engagement photoshoot sessions with her, which were both so fun!! My husband was dreading the photography most, out of all parts of “wedding planning.” But Kaitlyn was able to make him feel relaxed and comfortable so that he actually enjoyed himself! And he actually loves the way he looks in the photos! (He usually hates having his photo taken and the way he photographs.) Kaitlyn was able to capture our silliness, laughter, and genuine happiness in the candid photos which is exactly the look and feel I was hoping for in our photos! (I’m personally not a fan of the stiff posed or moody photos.) Our second engagement shoot also included our dog, which was fantastic! Not only was Kaitlyn great to work with on wedding day and the 2 engagement shoots, she was also a great resource for planning the logistics and timeline of the wedding day. She had great input of the flow of the entire day, which was something I had completely overlooked. Most importantly, Kaitlyn was very professional the entire time. We also gave Kaitlyn the added task of photographing the flower girl nieces (ages 2 & 7 years) and the ring bearer nephew (age 5) who is on the Autism Spectrum. All 3 kiddos still talk months later about how they had so much fun at the wedding! And Kaitlyn was able to capture them all smiling! Photographing dogs and kids is always difficult to ask for, but the photos of our smiling nephew on our wedding day made the parents and grandparents cry tears of joy! It’s rare to catch this kid smiling! We loved working with Kaitlyn, and we can’t wait to do more photoshoots together in the future!

We hired Jessie to photograph our engagement pictures and our wedding based on a recommendation from a friend and we wouldn’t change a thing! To her personality, Jessie is such a sweet and caring person, which made us feel so comfortable. While she is very professional, we felt like friends – not “just” clients. Jessie made us feel natural and relaxed while taking our engagement pictures (our first professional pictures together). She helped us numerous times throughout the wedding planning process and even helped create our wedding schedule, which was a huge stress relief. One of our favorite things about Jessie is how she truly cares about her clients, and will both mentally and emotionally check in with them during the wedding day. Just knowing that you have someone supporting you, rooting for you, and telling you to “take a deep breath” truly makes all the difference on such an important day. We love Jessie’s one-on-one, down to earth nature and it was one of the reasons we chose her. To her work, Jessie is an outstanding photographer. Alex’s family is filled with professional photographers who had nothing but praise for Jessie’s style and quality. We love that she uses natural light and makes the people she’s photographing the stars of her photos. She also loves using real items from her surroundings like leaves, flowers, branches, etc. and incorporanting them into her shots to make them look more realistic. Lastly, her investments (prices) are very fair for the pictures and experiences you receive. You won’t find a better hype-woman and an artist. So, if you are thinking about hiring Wildcrest Studios as your wedding photographer, do it!

From the moment we saw Breanne’s beautiful photos, we knew we wanted her to capture our day too. Her style of timeless, elegant, and true-to-the moment photos fit our vision exactly. She was the first vendor we booked after our venue and it was the easiest decision we made throughout the whole process! We booked with her in 2018 for our 2020 wedding and then COVID happened. Through two year-long postponements, Breanne was supportive and understanding. Then, when we were faced with the predicament of finding a new venue 10 months out from our 2022 wedding, she was incredibly helpful and kind – providing not only suggestions for new venues to look at, but also lending an ear as a friend and giving us advice. Picking out a new venue was stressful, but having such a caring person as Breanne in our corner meant so much to us. On the day of our wedding, Breanne and her husband, Jason, made us feel so comfortable throughout the day and helped keep things moving, even when we got behind schedule. They made us laugh and encouraged us to really feel the joy of the day. When our wedding photos were delivered, we were blown away! Breanne and Jason captured moments both big and small and looking through them is like reliving the day. We are so grateful to have such beautiful and timeless photos to cherish forever.

Let me start off by saying I am pretty shy and am usually not the most photogenic gal out there. You can probably imagine how anxious I was going into our wedding planning - I was pretty worried about my awkwardness in front of a camera and the impact that would have on our wedding photos. But then I met LaDonna, and that all changed! She was so nice and professional in her approach and she really took the time to help me find my confidence in front of a camera. She was really patient and encouraging and was really great at giving me some direction early on at the beginning in teaching me how to look natural; by the time it came to our real sessions, I found I was hardly even thinking about my insecurities and instead found I was just living in the moment with my husband-to-be!

When I began my hunt for vendors for my 2/17/24 wedding, I stumbled upon Promani. Planning a wedding is, obviously, stressful, but Promani made me feel heard and supported every step of the way. Austin, our videographer, was so lovely. He was high energy, kind, and so transparent about what the experience would look like. He checked, double checked, and triple checked that we were on the same page the entire experience. Lola, our photographer, was just as incredible! She seamless grabbed shot after shot, getting right in the middle of the action, magically never drawing too much attention to her presence. The cherry on top was the stunning media delivered only 3 weeks after the big day. If you go with Promani, you certainly won’t regret it.

Hey! I’m Lara (say it like Sarah). I’m a Detroit native, but have been soaking up the gorgeous South Florida sunshine since 2014. I’m an old soul: a lot of my friends joke that I’m 30 going on 90. I love old movies, interesting traditions, crossword puzzles, Peruvian food, animals, and Harry Potter. And, ten thousand other little things…. I love traveling the world with my favorite travel buddy, my husband. We got married in 2017, and going through that process of being a bride myself gave me a fresh perspective on the art of documenting a wedding day.

We worked alongside with Lara for a wedding she photographed, and that I filmed. She is a great communicator, connects well with her couples, is sweet, takes candid pictures, but also encourages natural movement. Delivers photos quickly and is a really sweet person :) Would recommend

Featured on Today show and Wedding Day Magazine. I believe everyone deserves to have life's biggest moments captured on camera. But photos turn into heirlooms when the moments are documented in a way that feels absolutely authentically you. No forced emotions, no fake smiles, and certainly no awkward prom-pic poses. Whether you’re dressed to the nines on the day of your wedding or, the dirty white dress that spent more time on the dance floor than the altar let’s capture the authentic you and have a damn good time doing it.

It’s hard to put into words how incredible Mary is. From the moment we booked her, we knew we had made the right choice. Mary meticulously crafted mood boards, timelines and provided invaluable advice from the engagement shoot to the wedding. She has a warm and vibrant spirit that makes you feel comfortable and excited. We found many times throughout the wedding day we felt most calm with Mary while taking pictures. You won’t find another photographer like her, willing to go the extra mile to deliver a vision. We cannot thank Mary enough for our beautiful photos. They are mementos of a perfect day we will cherish forever.

Jason "Snorlax" Cun is an all around photographer that currently resides in Los Angeles, California. He was raised in the heart of Los Angeles, where he found his calling in photography. He aims to capture the beauty of the world and the people in them. He has recently begun his travels around the U.S capturing the life of those within that city.

Jason was recommended to me by a family member, and to this day, I'm so grateful. Jason was so quick with communication. He responded and asked for details from the very beginning. He was easy to talk to. We ended up booking him for our engagement photos AND our wedding photos. Our engagement photo session was seamless. Jason was easy to work with and he made my (now) husband and I feel so comfortable. Photo sessions do NOT have to be awkward with Jason. He recommended the LA Arboretum and the Pasadena City Hall for our shoot and we couldn't have asked for any better location. Jason knew exactly where to go and what to do. When it came time for our wedding day, Jason and Mae (his second) were so nice. They did not rush us for any photoshoot. He had us take our time, take breathers, and helped us stress about one less thing during the day. We just got our photos back and they are downright GORGEOUS. I could not believe these were us. I am still amazed by it all. The turnover time was so quick as well. Again, communication was so easy with him. I HIGHLY recommend Jason as a photographer. We could not have asked for anyone better.

Every individual has a unique tale, and mine is quite the whirlwind! When I was 5, my family left our Michigan home and has been on the move ever since. After living across the globe, I now proudly call Salt Lake City, UT my home sweet home with my wonderful husband, our sweet daughter, and our White German Shepherd! My journey toward becoming a wedding photographer is fueled by my romantic spirit, hope for deep connections, and wandering the world in pursuit of love. The idea of spreading love near and far, and passing on that love through generations puts a smile on my face every day.

It is very obvious that Lauren is so passionate about what she does. My husband feels awkward in front of the camera but she did a great job with keeping it fun. You would never be able to tell he was awkward by the way the pictures came out, she did fantastic. Thank you Lauren for capturing such beautiful photos that we will cherish forever!

I've been specializing in weddings for nearly 15 years. My style includes capturing the many genuine moments that occur during the wedding day in an unobtrusive and low key way. Documenting the day in an artistic and non cheesy way really tells the story of a couple's big day. I feed off the energy from couple's and their guests and craft a story of their day through photos. On a personal note, I have a loving wife, 3 kids and 2 dogs!

Matt is by far one of the best single shooter photographers I have ever met. He is everywhere he needs to be to get all of the amazing shots you want. He is so easy going and professional! You will love every single picture he takes and it will be hard to pick what ones you will want in your wedding album, and on your walls. He gets to know you on a personal level and listens to what you want. He is the best!!

Not only does she capture stunningly beautiful photos that make your jaw drop, she is truly a wedding angel! During the planning process she is a quick email away to answer your questions or concerns and is happy to hop on the phone for a conversation about the planning process. Her wedding guide is better than most blogs out there and is incredibly helpful! On the day of your wedding, she comes early, prepared, and ready to go. Having her there on our wedding day was like having a long-time friend present photographing our day. I was so impressed with her knowledge of how weddings go and I couldn't have done it all without her. I cannot say enough good things about Faith and her team! Hiring her was well worth the investment!

Hi, I'm Madalyn Muncy-Piens, the lady behind the lens over here at Madalyn Muncy Photography. I'm not into being the center of attention so I keep your wedding ALL ABOUT YOU. I'm all about balance, so I'm the perfect combination of organized and flexible, proactive yet not overbearing, knowledgeable but not bossy, and a comforting presence both with and without a camera in hand. When you hire me, you get someone who genuinely cares about comparing photos of our dogs, sharing recipes for dinner, and listening to your book recommendations. Check out my website or Instagram to learn more about me!

Awarded Best of Zola
Madalyn was probably the best photographer we could have asked for, it was like having a friend instead of a vendor throughout the day. She just does a great job of capturing candid and genuine emotion, and after getting all of our photos back we loved how she was able to capture us (and pretty much everyone else) looking great and having fun without being overly posed. In addition, she was so incredibly organized and professional throughout the entire process, she got us our timeline and I was able to use that to build the rest of our day-of-schedule around it. She communicated early and often and always made sure she got the list of required photos we wanted so we didn’t miss anything. Since she also hadn’t photographed at our venue before, she set up her own meeting with the venue before the wedding to get a tour and walk-through so it wasn’t a surprise on the day of the wedding. She was assertive when she needed to be to wrangle our families for photos but otherwise was extremely flexible in getting shots if the plans changed! Especially since our wedding was late in the winter and we decided against a first look, she made sure to have a lighting assistant on hand to help coordinate additional flash and we got some great evening photos, and the second shooter who helped out had some awesome ideas for important shots too. Also, she got us engagement photo sneak peeks within 24 hours and got us our wedding sneak peeks (40+ photos!) within 48 hours of our wedding. She just made the entire planning experience and photo sessions so comfortable and fun.

Awarded Best of Zola
My wedding photos were one of the most important things to me on my wedding day, as it is most brides, because they capture the memories made that’ll last a lifetime. Working with Ryan eliminated absolutely any stress I had of getting the perfect photos. Starting with the planning process he helped guide our “day of wedding” schedule and added input to ensure we got every photo we wanted. During our wedding day he made everyone feel VERY MUCH at ease. Our bridal party was laughing, joking, smiling, having an amazing time and nobody felt they were put into awkward poses and that was evident when we received our photos back. The natural feel of every photo is priceless! Ryan went above and beyond and I could not be happier with choosing him to photograph our wedding! 20/10 recommend.
