Then you are in the right place! I have an extensive and personal understanding of the wedding process that captures the unnoticed moments, unexpected perspectives and unique personalities. Based in West Michigan I specialize in wedding and engagement photography. I have been photographing weddings for over 12 years and am available for bookings in West Michigan and worldwide. I LOVE destination weddings, take me with you!! My style is romantic, fun, creative and shows emotion.
Mike the groom from destination wedding said "I was impressed with Wendi's ability to balance her creative vision while listening to our ideas that led to beautiful results. She made everyone in our wedding party and our guests (34 total) feel important and involved. She does a fabulous job of capturing candid moments without people knowing she is shooting, which made for some unique and wonderful memories. She also takes the time to get to know everyone so that they are comfortable with her and she calls them by name which was a great personal touch. Her understanding of subject, light and composition was excellent and as a result, we have some photos that are simply breathtaking. Let's face it, anyone can shoot a wedding with decent equipment and a little experience, but it takes a comprehensive understanding of photography and a passion to create beautiful memories to accomplish something special. Wendi was so fun and personable that I actually felt like she was a part of our group by the end of the week. I highly recommend her for your special day and can guarantee that she will capture your event in a unique and beautiful way. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a great photographer and an even better person."
Lisa said "Where do I begin? Wendi's pure excitement and expertise outshone all other responses I received, and combined with her stellar portfolio, I knew that she was the best photographer for us. For a couple planning a wedding in Michigan while living on the East Coast, Wendi made it so easy for us by providing her tips, tricks and timeline recommendations so that our wedding day would run as smooth as possible. Soon after booking Wendi, she asked if we would be interested in doing an engagement shoot in NYC while she was there on vacation. We were completely floored by the offer (Wendi may be the only person I know who didn't mind working on a vacation!), and we are SO glad we accepted it! We have iconic NYC settings and memories for us to look back on, and it was a great way to loosen up and get to know her and her photography style. Not only that, but Wendi made us a GORGEOUS guest sign-in book out of our photos that we still get compliments on. On our wedding day, Wendi was early, calm, made us feel comfortable, went with the flow, kept our groomsmen and bridesmaids in order and captured everything perfectly. Not a week goes by without me looking at our keepsake book, scrolling through our online gallery and reliving all of the amazing memories that she was able to capture. I highly recommend Wendi to anyone planning an engagement, wedding or anniversary shoot."
Emily said: "We had the best time working with Wendi! Every time I talked with her on the phone I would hang up with the biggest smile on my face. With all the stress of planning, she really put me at ease and was so helpful with setting up a game plan and timeline for our pictures! We didn't want to spend hours and hours taking pictures and wanted to have a lot of fun during them, with Wendi we got so many great shots and had a blast. My husband hates getting his picture taken and he even had a good time, and is still singing Wendi's praises. We both highly recommend her!"
