A wedding day that isn’t about anything other than you and your partner. A unique experience that you two share together, spending your day doing exactly what you want to do.
Your wedding day should be so much more than a ceremony and photos. It should be an entire experience. From start to finish, spending the day doing exactly what you want to do with your favorite person in the world. No stress, no pressure, no obligations. Just the two of you, celebrating your love. Isn’t that how every wedding day should be?
I'm here to make sure you have the absolute best day possible. Everything from planning, helping you find the perfect location, answering questions, carrying your bags, helping you feel relaxed, and making sure you’re able to truly focus on the day.
I don’t see myself as your vendor and you as my client - I truly see us as friends, and I care so deeply about you having the best experience on your wedding day.
Michigan elopement photographer
I’ve been a photographer for over 10 years, and I truly feel like the luckiest person in the world to be able to combine my love for photography, nature, and capturing love through elopement and couples photography.
I became an elopement photographer because I truly believe it’s the best way to get married. My partner and I chose an intimate wedding because it was authentic and true to us, and it was the best decision we could have made.
And I want the same for you: so you can look back on your wedding day as the best day of your lives spent with your favorite person in the world.
At the end of the day, most photographers can deliver great photos. But I want so much more than that for you. The experience of your elopement day is my #1 priority, and I’ll do everything I can to make sure you have the best day. Forget about the expectations of what your day “should” be - we’ll work together to create a beautiful day that is true to who you are.
We are not normally comfortable getting our pictures taken, so we were hesitant about the process. We met with several elopement photographers before deciding to go with Brittany. The first call with her made us feel confident because she was easy to talk to and explained everything clearly for us. Once we moved forward, she was always available, kept us on track for planning, gave us ideas and resources (since we had never been to the locations before), and helped add to our excitement for the event (since it was going to just be the two of us eloping).
As an LGBTQ couple, we wanted to be confident that we would feel completely comfortable with our photographer during our wedding ceremony and pictures. From the get-go, Brittany made it clear that she was excited to work with us like any other couple. This is incredibly important. On the day of the event, she and Jake continued to make us comfortable, even though we had just met for the first time in-person, likely because we had video, phone, and telephone calls while planning.
Brittany is much more than a photographer. She helped us plan and gave us ideas for locations and activities. She was also very easy going and flexible.
On top of all that, the photos are phenomenal. She listened to our ideas for what kind of framing and composition we wanted in the photos, emphasizing the location in addition to us. The pictures captured exactly what we were looking for and we are very, very happy."
My wife and I decided a while back, after seeing the estimate for a traditional wedding in a local venue, that it wasn't worth the money or the hype. We wanted something more personal and intimate since that special moment is to be reserved for us.
Brittany, along with her husband Jake, made sure to capture each and every moment and the emotion of every moment just as we would have hoped! My wife is shy and hates being the center of attention, so naturally getting married, even in front of close friends and family, was unsettling and she really didn't like having her picture taken...
None of this proved to be a challenge for Brittany as her and Jake seemed to just let things flow naturally, give guidance when it was needed or when they saw a shot through their eyes, and magically disappear so you never even know they were there capturing those little moments when you think no one is watching. You know the ones... the ones so packed with emotion that you can really feel every ounce of love, caring, and passion you share with each other...all able to be felt through the photos Brittany and Jake were able to capture.
If there was anything at all we did right during this special occasion, it was having Brittany and Jake be there to capture these moments!
Thanks again Brittany and Jake! You guys are the best!"
April and I knew that we did not want a “traditional” wedding and had a vague idea of something that felt more us but it still felt a bit overwhelming. Enter Brittany!
From that small idea, Brittany helped us bring it to life in such a beautiful way. Her process in planning is very thoughtful with everything geared toward making things easy and relaxed for her clients. She had so many great options for our day and took the time to get to know us, honing in on what could make sense for April and me. Her responsiveness made us feel so well taken care of and let us know how much of a priority our day was to her.
The plan we landed on was perfect. It was such a lovely experience for April and me (and our dog Hazel) and memories we'll have forever.
And after all that... our pictures are absolutely amazing! We got sneak peeks VERY quickly (the next day!!!) and everyone we've shown them to thinks they were ripped from a magazine!
We HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Brittany and Jake to anyone looking for a totally unique experience, the highest level of care for your day, and magazine quality pictures capturing it all!"
