Our Philosophy

 

Our goal is to provide our couples with an amazing, stress-free experience. We make it a priority to help you relax and enjoy every step of your wedding photography process. We are happy to answer questions and give advice on your timeline and other photography related issues. On your wedding day, we will concentrate on capturing events as they unfold naturally but step up as needed to help pose you and offer suggestions to help you look your best. With years of experience photographing weddings, we consider ourselves experts at helping people feel comfortable in front of the camera! 

 

Our Studio

 

We began this exciting journey of photographing weddings in 2002. Our studio is located in Clio and we are happy to travel throughout the state of Michigan (and beyond!). We focus on improving our craft and product offerings by actively pursing continuing education opportunities. We are proficient in both natural light photography and off camera flash (see our FAQs to learn more about these techniques). We offer high quality print and album products to complete your wedding experience.

Beth & Mike Severn

 

We are a husband and wife team with 15 years of experience photographing weddings. We are lighthearted and easygoing and bring a relaxed, calming energy to your wedding photography experience. We believe enjoying our career is essential (we can often be heard joking with each other and our clients). We are dedicated to every assignment we accept. We love working together and feel extremely blessed to be able to do so. And yes, there is a level of friendly competition between us on who is the better photographer. :) We compliment each other’s strengths and weaknesses (in photography and in life). We believe in marriage and take a lot of pride in being able to celebrate with our couples on the first day of the rest of their lives.

 

God has entrusted two beautiful little humans to our care - a son and a daughter, as well as two big, lazy dogs. We enjoy hosting get-togethers with friends, traveling, being outdoors, hiking, and boating. Music is an integral part of our lives. While Beth just loves listening to it and has no musical talent whatsoever, Mike plays guitar and serves as our church’s co-worship leader weekly. We are actively involved in our church and our greatest passions are seeking and serving God and loving people.

Brianna Danese

 

Bri is our amazingly talented studio associate and staff photographer. We have had the pleasure of knowing her for many years - and to know her is to love her! Her experience includes 6 years as a wedding photographer and several years as a traveling photojournalist. Raised in Michigan, she has spent the last several years of her life traveling the globe for pleasure and business, including mission work and living abroad in Japan for 4 and a half years. We are excited to have her back in the States and as part of our team. Her adventurous spirit and quick wit make her a joy to be around. Bri has a fondness for organization and is great at being efficient and productive while remaining pleasant and upbeat. Her attention to detail and love of catching candid moments really shine through in her work.

 

When she is not photographing someone or something, editing, designing, or holding the studio together with her mad coordination skills, she enjoys cooking (especially Japanese food), crafts/DIY, spending time with her big bearded boyfriend (they love grilling in the summer) and traveling to new places.

 


We understand that looking through tons of gorgeous photos on websites and Pinterest and seemingly endless photographer options can be inspiring…and overwhelming.  It can be challenging to find the right professional with whom you can trust your memories.  We would love the opportunity to speak with you, earn your trust, and see if we are a good fit as your photographers!  Get in touch with us at 989-737-4099 or through the Contact Us page.
