Here are the details about my metro Detroit Michigan wedding photography business...

I'm a Michigan wedding photographer based in Troy, Michigan with 20 years experience as a working photojournalist for the Associated Press, the Ann Arbor New, the Detroit News and Free Press. I switched exclusively to shooting Michigan weddings about 8 years ago and have now documented over 1,000 happy couples unique wedding day stories. My clients love my extremely unobtrusive style of shooting, that I'm very easy going and that I appear to be everywhere yet unseen!

My Michigan wedding couples receive over 1,000 edited, touched up, enhanced and ready to print high resolution images on disks they own within two weeks of their wedding day. All of my Michigan wedding prices and packages are listed. I think it's important to take all the guess work out of Michigan wedding photography.

A La Carte add ons to my Michigan wedding photography packages include the very popular photo "booth" station with props and hats as well as the 11x14 inch wedding albums that I create. If you're looking to put together your own wedding album, I've got a great resource guide.

I've got many metro Detroit wedding photography samples from all over Michigan displayed in slideshows so you can see not only my "best of" wedding portfolios, but also that each wedding couple is unique and so are their wedding photos! This is one of many things that sets me apart from other Michigan wedding photographers.

Since I've attended so very many weddings, I've included a section for wedding planning and wedding day tips and I've got a pretty extensive Q & A page that should help to answer a lot of your questions about how I work as a Michigan wedding photojournalist. Ask me anything, anytime... I'm always happy to help!

Links to my favorite fellow Michigan and Detroit based wedding professionals makes a great place to start sifting through all your options. Anybody who is on this list is someone I've worked with enough times to know they are true pros, LOVE what they do and can make "it" happen at each and every wedding. That's sadly a rare thing in this industry!

I charge $300 an hour of all my metro Detroit portrait photography. I edit, enhance, adjust and have the high resolution, ready to print images within two weeks and as always, you own them.

I predominantly take my Oakland County senior photos outdoors on location for a contemporary and natural look. I love working with Michigan high school seniors to capture their personalities so thoroughly. When you see all 300+ images, you'll see photos of what they looked like when they were young and photos of what they're going to look like in 10 years and everything in between. So much is changing so quickly and I love reflecting that in their senior pictures.

Easy going, relaxed metro Detroit area family photos are usually shot at your home or outdoors... whatever suits the style of your family and showcases you best!

My Detroit area boudoir and glamour photography shoots are popular not only as wedding gifts, Valentines day gifts and sexy birthday presents, but the 40+ year olds are finding this experience to be very empowering and fun. Sorry boys and girls... you won't find any "smutty" photos here... these are private photos for someone who isn't YOU! I shoot in your home or at a nearby Troy hotel... whatever you're most comfortable with. Most of my clients are nervous, but think having a female boudoir photographer is less daunting.

Baby photos are so fun to shoot! Patience, flexibility and lots of breaks are key for capturing their emerging personalities in a non stressful way. I try to shoot these at your metro Detroit area home since everybody's more comfortable in their normal surroundings. I bring the studio to you!

Maternity photos range from fun, in the moment shots with lots of humor to maternity boudoir type of shots. I like to shoot these portraits to the mom to be's taste and expectations and try to limit my travelling to the metro Detroit area.

My Michigan engagement photography isn't just limited to the couples whose weddings I shoot. If you have a fun theme or are looking for sweet moments or something more traditional, I'm happy to work with you to create lots of images that you can use for save the date cards, stamps, favors, programs and of course, actual photos! I try to keep my engagement photography business nearby the Detroit area and I don't shoot portraits on weekends as I'm shooting weddings!

I also shoot theater head shots, corporate head shots and photograph your business for your web sites. For all of my photography, I create the studio in your home, office or event. I also photograph individual parties, events, bar mitzvahs, trash the dress sessions and paparazzi engagements.

I also happen to have written and photo illustrated three children's books for Penguin Putnam that are now part of a national book club.If you're a Michigan school looking to have a fellow Michigan author and illustrator come for a school visit, I have lots of information on the programs I provide.

My three published books are; "Big Sister, Little Sister","Big Brother, Little Brother" and "I Was So Silly; Big Kids Remember Being Little".

And if by chance, you're actually curious to know more about me personally, you can either check out my bio or my facebook page.

I realy 100% on the happy referrals of my clients to keep my wedding shooting calendar full and my life very busy, so I don't advertise on any of the wedding sites like the Knot for my great reviews. Those all come from my Michigan wedding couples who are happy to spread the good word! I do have a rave review section, but for the past two years whenever couples let me know how happy they were with my Michigan wedding photojournalistic style of wedding photography, I ask them to please post their comments on wedding review sites so everyone can read about their experience with me and my photography services. What I love about the wedding photography review sites is that you can really start to see trends so you as the consumer can know what to expect and what sets me apart from other Michigan wedding photographers. Thanks to all my Detroit area brides and grooms who voted for me as their favorite Michigan wedding photographer and Detroit wedding photojournalist SIX years in a row!
