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

I'm a Metro Detroit, Michigan wedding photographer based in Troy, Michigan with 25 years professional photography 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 15 years ago and have now documented over 1,000 happy couples and their 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 and ready to print high resolution images they have full printing rights to within two weeks of their wedding day.

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. The only exception is family photography that is $400/hr. because anything with over two people will require a LOT of extra photoshopping in order to produce the amazing family photos you know and love.

Most of the Oakland County senior photos I photograph are outdoors on location for a contemporary and natural look. I love working with Detroit area 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. I'm based in Troy, Michigan and I photograph a lot of Troy High and Athens High School seniors for their senior photos. I also spend a lot of of time in Rochester and Birmingham photographing their high school seniors.

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.

Fun, affordable baby photos are a joy to photograph! Patience, flexibility and lots of breaks are key for capturing their emerging personalities in a non stressful way. These are the only photography sessions that I do not keep track of the time as I want to reduce stress levels for everyone. You have two options.

Affordable and creative "paparazzi style" candid proposal photography has become very popular in recent years. I've done quite a few of these candid proposal photography sessions in the Metro Detroit area. While the bride to be usually doesn't even know I'm there and I love to photograph these very photojournalistic moments, do keep in mind that most of the best Detroit, Michigan wedding photographers photograph weddings on the weekend.

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.
