Does anyone know of a good photographer in the Metro Detroit area? The photos are the MOST important aspect of our wedding to me and I really want them to turn out well. At the same time, we can’t spend an arm and a leg for them. Help?
Our wedding is August 28th, 2010

I’m using Amy Boeve out of Grand Rapids. She includes travel to Metro Detroit in her packages though. I found her on a whim on craigslist and have referred her to one of my BMs too. We both love the way our engagement photos turned out and she has been great so far. I can’t wait to work with her for our wedding!
Good luck! Maybe some of the recently married bees can share their vendors too!

I’ve done some research on photographers. I wanted to find photos that were highly recommended! These photogs range from from about $1400 – $3200 for starting prices. You might be after a particular style; many of these do a blend of styles, but there is an emphasis on photo journalism.
Amy Boeve is also a popular choice as mentioned above!

we used Kahn Santori Photography: http://www.ksantori.com
We got married in downtown detroit. His prices we’re VERY reasonable, he came with 2 photographers and a lighting person. It was a great blend of ‘traditional’ and more ‘photojournalistic’ stuff.

Well. Photography is BIG on my list. So I went with the best in the biz. Marco Antonio I am taking up photography too as a hobby. So it really means a lot to me to have them perfect for my wedding. Marco is so good that when photographers call me from the bridal shows soliciting for my business and I tell them who I have, they are speechless :0 and tell me that I got a great photographer. He already did our engagement pics at the Meadowbrooke Hall and they are amazing. I can’t wait for the wedding ones in Jamaica!! We are flying him down. He is based in Sterling Heights, but people fly him all over the world to do their destination weddings. And the best part is that he and his wife are sooo nice. I totally recommend. Here is his site. Let me know if you pick them. I would love to see your pics!!!

I was like you and really concerned about my pictures, so we went and hired Emily Dowd out of Waterford. I couldn’t be happier with our photos! Emily was amazing to work with and has been great this entire time. Her photos speak for themselves!!!

Dolce La Vie is new to Metro Detroit. They haven’t done many weddings yet, but they live in the area and do a really good job. They also aren’t charging much for 2010 while they build up their portfolio. You should check them out: dolcelavie.smugmug.com.
Plus, you get two photographers with them and they take a modern approach…

I just used Mod4 for my engagement pics and I loved the photoshoot. I don’t have the pics back yet but the experience was awesome and so much fun. My photographer was Mike and his wifes name is Jennifer. I’m excited and if I didn’t have a photgraphy for my wedding (Turks & Caicos) I would use them.
