Any recommendations for wonderful photographers in the mid-Michigan area (tri-cities: Saginaw, Bay City, Midland)?
We would like to spend a maximum of $2400 and would really like the photographer to capture CANDID PHOTOS (i.e. our day, expressions and special moments) instead of just taking posed photos.
Thanks for any advice you can give!

- Wedding: May 2013 - The bride's hometown United Methodist Church near Kalamazoo
Here’s a bump for you: I hope you find someone! Too bad I’m in West Michigan: my photographer rocks and is very reasonably priced!!

I am bumping this again. I am in West MI as well. Our phototog is from GR but still too far away 🙁 GL

@midmibride: Midland is on the long list of places for us to elope. I probably looked a every photographers site in/near Michigan- most were the posed cheesy pictures. I found this guy who has a beautiful portfolio online, although I never spoke w/ him http://www.patrickhadleyphotography.com/engagement-gallery. Prices start a $2700 though. From what I remember his portfolio was far better than anyone else in the area.

I am living here in the tri-cities (Midland) and I haven’t found anyone that wows me yet either. :l

I would encourage everyone to check out my photographer, Jenn at Emily-Waid Photography. She’s from GR, but will travel (no travel fee). The only thing she asks is for a room if it’s 3+ (I think? maybe 4+) hours from GR.

I know of a couple people. All of them will do great candid photos and as far as I know, are willing to travel. They might have some costs for traveling, but their prices are really good!
They’re all personal friends of mine, but they do AMAZING work!

By the way, if anyone emails Jenn @ Emily-Waid, tell her that Brandy sent you!

I think I am going to start calling Photog’s tonight. I’m feeling a little overwhelemd but guess I have to start somewhere.
@vorpalette: I’ll tell Emily that ‘Brandy’ said to call. 🙂

I am using Simone Boos. She isn’t currently in mid-mich, but will travel for no fee. I like her stuff b/c it is relatively simple but she still seems to have a good eye. Idk, it seems to me that a lot of the “really nice” pics on blogs are photoshopped tons and tons…and I can photoshop just fine. But also that ones that weren’t “editorial”, the photographers couldn’t pose people or get angles. I think Simone is sort of in the middle- can pose people when needed but doesn’t over edit the pics. Also, she is pretty inexpensive (paying $1000 for all day, plus second shooter…prints aren’t bad either). Finally, if you want to see her stuff, use facebook. There are more recent pics here than on her website.
This is Brittany, if you contact her.
