for the

photos as unique as you

If a photo can't make you feel then what is the point? Whether the feeling comes from beauty in lines and color and creativity or the passion and emotion in the subject, we believe every photo should have life enough to make your heart stir.


If you feel similarly and truly want something more than just posed smiles, let's talk.


We are Little Blue Bird Photography - husband and wife wedding photography team. Primarily, we work in the Detroit area as creative wedding and elopement photographers, but we travel nationwide and frequently photograph weddings far outside of Metro Detroit. It is our pride and privilege to deliver high end, unique, evocative images that stand apart from traditional wedding photography. We love motion and drama, contrast and gorgeous light. We love dark shadows and muted tones. 

Our wedding photos are all about emotion, feeling, contrast, and natural light and DRAMA. We love using symmetry and lines and play with contrast and composition. Our work has been described as rich, moody, muted, artistic, evocative, editorial, and emotional containing a balance of emotional, candid unposed images and dramatic, Vogue-style portraits. If you are looking for predominantly traditional "smile at the camera" photos, we are not the right photographers for you - but if you are looking for real, raw emotion, artistic portraits, and something different and dramatic, let's talk!


Are you in our area? While we primarily work in the Ann Arbor/Detroit area, we really will go anywhere and have recently photographed weddings and elopements in Marquette and beyond!

We only take a small number of weddings per year, so it is recommended to book in advance.

Gabe and I have photographed over 70 weddings in the past few years in every style from boho and adventurous to modern and urban. Our photos have been featured on Junebug Weddings, Wedding Chicks, 100 Layer Cake, Ruffled, Looks Like Film + more!

< That's us. Obligatory working a wedding selfie. I know, a cell phone photo is a sin, but hey when you have four kids and a thousand birds and a dog, you take what you can get.
