Hey there! I'm Caedy, a lover of ice cream, dancing, and all things creative. Born and raised in Michigan, I'm a devoted Michigander, but I've traveled all over the world and hope to keep exploring (camera in hand) for the rest of my life. I'm passionate about people, love, adventure, and popcorn. 

My approach to photography is all about savoring every beautiful moment of emotion. I strive to capture the joy and individuality of everyone I photography, and to create art with authenticity and intentionality.

Some things I like: Wes Anderson films, anyone who will goofy dance with me, popcorn, Lake Michigan swims, podcasts, Lord of the Rings, The Office, and naps. 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?

I take a lifestyle, photojournalistic approach to photography, with a fresh creative twist. My goal is to capture real moments of authentic emotion in a way that truly captures your individuality. I love getting funky, creative, and quirky with my couples to create images that are unique to you and your wedding day. Picture if Wes Anderson were to remake Pride and Prejudice. Lotsa feel-good moments, a love for pretty light, and some weird, eye-catching compositions and colors. I want to create art with you that you want to put on your walls not just because you're in it, but because it looks freakin' awesome.

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS + OTHER SHOOTS?

YES! I love photographing all over the place, and am happy to travel to your unique location. I've traveled for weddings all around Michigan, to many other states, and even internationally! Contact me for a travel quote specific to your needs, and I can't wait to create art with you anywhere. 

HOW DO I BOOK YOU?

To reserve your wedding date, I require a signed contract and 50% of your package price. Payment plans are available if needed. The remaining 50% is due two weeks before your wedding date. For portrait sessions, I also have a contract I'll have you sign, and the full session amount is due by the time of the session.

WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE, AND DO YOU HAVE BACKUP EQUIPMENT?

I have a variety of professional-grade camera bodies and lenses. If you want to know specifics, feel free to ask! I always bring my extra camera body, lenses, and memory cards to every wedding for backup. I've also got a sweet holster that lets me carry two cameras at once and makes me feel like a total badass. 

WHAT KIND OF EDITING DO YOU PROVIDE?

I individually edit every single photo that you receive. I edit for color, contrast, and mood to make the beauty of your day truly come to life. I do not do extensive body/skin retouching/photoshopping. You're beautiful! Let's enhance you, not try to change you :)

CAN YOU GIVE ADVICE ON WHAT PACKAGE FITS OUR NEEDS BEST?

Absolutely! I'd love to talk through the timeline of the day with you to make sure you’re getting all the photography coverage you desire. During your planning process, I’m available to give input and help you plan the timeline of day. My packages are fully customizable, so what you see is a starting point that can be easily adjusted to fit your specific needs.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A PHOTOGRAPHER?

I first fell in love with photography in 2010, and first started shooting weddings in 2013. I've been doing the photo thang full-time since 2015. But if you count all the sunset photos I took with my little point-and-shoot film camera as a kid, I've been into it my whole life. 

CAN YOU SUGGEST OTHER VENDORS? FLORISTS, DJs, VIDEOGRAPHERS, VENUES, ETC. 

Absolutely! I have a vendor referral list that I will gladly send your way.
