Artistic Wedding Photography In Michigan.
We love getting artistic! It's your wedding day, a time to pull put all the stops, throw caution to the wind, have an awesome experience, and rock those wedding images. With that in mind, why not create a wedding collection made up of the typical bridal images you would expect to capture, with a sprinkling of creative shots thrown in. What exactly is artistic wedding photography? Great question, we wish we had an answer, because it's different for everyone. We have photographed a bride and groom underwater, and in locations as diverse as loading docks, fields, beaches, abandoned buildings, even a shopping mall. There are no boundaries, just a passion to create photographs for your wedding album that you will want to look at every day.
Wedding Photography Challenges.
Detroit & Ann Arbor Wedding Photography can have it's challenges, just like any other profession. The best laid plans don't always always go to, well, plan! The weather of course can be a little unpredictable. That's one of the challenges for Michigan wedding photography, and one that your photographer should be able to meet head on with confidence and skill. It's what makes it exciting - every wedding is a new adventure. The experience built up from years of dealing with unpredictability, means that your Venture photographer can always be relied upon to keep things moving smoothly along. But wait, surely the photographer is just their to take the photographs? No, it's much more involved than that.
Let Venture Keep You On Track.
One thing we hear after every wedding is this: "it went so quickly, it's all a blur". Yes, that day you have been planning for a year or more, looking forward to for perhaps many years, will fly by faster than you want it to. To get the most from your wedding day, you need a plan. Never planned a wedding day before? We have! We do it all the time. Let's be clear though, we are not talking about being a Wedding Planner. That's an entirely different discipline. We are talking about a wedding timeline. There will be a set structure laid down for your day, a path to follow, and of course you can't be expected to keep looking at your watch, checking to see what's to happen next. So who is around you all day long that could take that responsibility off of your shoulders, relieve you of that pressure? Your wedding photographer of course. Our timeline, that we have arranged with you, is in our possession all day long, and we keep the flow going. All you have to do is relax, enjoy your most special day, and leave the stress to us.
A Wedding First Look.
Many, in fact most, of our clients opt to do a First Look. There are many benefits to seeing each other before your actual ceremony, and we would be happy to explain what those benefits are. Many people are against it to begin with, then once armed with why it helps you have a much better day, they have a change of heart. Still, it's your day, and your call. Once you know what the options are, you can make an informed decision. Over the course of a year of Detroit & Ann Arbor Wedding Photography, probably 80% of our clients opt for a First Look.
If there was ever a cool place to conduct the business of wedding photography, Detroit has to be it. We can walk with our bride and groom from a building steeped in splendor, to an abandoned shell of a structure - in a matter of minutes. The photographic diversity is astonishing. There are of course the popular places to visit, like the DIA, The Fox, Comerica Park, and The Riverwalk. But away from all of the places where lots of newlyweds congregate, there are the hidden gems. Where? Oh, that would be giving away our secret locations, let's save that for your wedding, shall we?
As far as wedding venues go, Detroit wedding photographers are a little spoiled. We get to photograph events in beautiful venues, and no matter where we work, the staff always seem to be polite and courteous. It always makes for a wonderful day. Recently, we have worked with The Colony Club, The Fillmore and The Detroit Athletic Club. We have of course shot wedding at many more Detroit wedding venues, just ask if you would like to see example images of one that you are considering, or have booked.
