For us, being Grand Rapids wedding photographers is truly one of the most reward parts of our lives! The friendships and experiences that we create with our LJ Couples last far beyond the wedding day. Before every wedding day, we spend weeks researching the venue and going over every detail to make sure we capture the couple, their families, and their celebration with excellence and creativity. Because we place such a high value on the importance of marriage and family, we limit the number of events we book each year to no more than 20 weddings, remaining an exclusive Michigan wedding photographer. We go to great lengths to be more than just another Michigan wedding photography vendor for our couples and stay in close contact with our brides assisting them with the wedding planning.
Your Michigan wedding photography should be an incredible EXPERIENCE! We serve brides who want joyful, genuine portraits of herself and her new groom. We love to hear your love story and about your vision for your wedding. The first step is contacting us. Then we'll move on to the booking process!
Now let’s make sure your date is safe and secure so that we can make this dream a reality! After we meet, we'll send you a custom online booking proposal. With this you can review your package and pay your deposit to make everything official! Now that you’re an official LJ Bride & Groom, it’s time to get started!! ....
After you book, we’ll schedule your engagement session. We’ll teach you EVERYTHING after the first few minutes of your session. We’ve NEVER had a couple not feel at ease! After your engagement session, you will be featured on the LJ Blog and get your online gallery of images to download and share.
Once we are about 8 weeks out from your wedding day, we will start making a custom timeline. We love creating these timelines for our couples to ensure that you don't miss out on your dream wedding photos. We work with our LJ Couples to plan their day so they create the perfect timeline for a worry-free wedding day!
It’s time to celebrate while we get to work! We believe in telling the full story of our couples' wedding day by capturing the romantic moments and luxurious details. After the wedding, you’ll be featured on the LJ Blog. We deliver your wedding photos ASAP while everyone is still on cloud nine.
After your wedding day is over, you will receive an online gallery full of all your wedding memories! We encourage our LJ Couples to sit down with a glass of wine and enjoy reliving their wedding day through their images! You will receive your album design (if you ordered an album!). Congratulations newlyweds!
Simple! Just message us to see if your wedding day is available. If it is you can book us by signing the photography wedding contract and paying the retainer. Your wedding contract represents our professional promise to you as photographers. Once you have signed your contract and retainer, your wedding date is secured -- we are officially and exclusively yours!
How do we book you for our wedding day?
You can expect roughly 100 photos per hour that we are photographing your wedding. We never cap the number of photos we deliver a bride and groom. We want to tell the full story of your wedding day and that can only be done by delivering all the images that turn out.
How many photos will I receive?
We constant hear how our clients love that there is two of us. We each have our own strengths that compliments each other well. We also hear how much fun we are to work with. Personally we always leave our sessions smiling and talking about how much fun we had. Our clients tells us they do the same.
What do people like most about working with you?
We do minimal amount of editing to our photos to keep them true to life and timeless. We are considered to be light and airy wedding photographers. We have nothing against the dark and moody look, but we believe it's a trend that will eventually change.
What is your photography style?
We believe a complete Michigan wedding photography experience starts with your engagement session. Our engagement sessions includes a two-hour session with two lead photographers (Leidy and Josh), up to two outfits and a Pinterest-style online gallery of retouched high-resolution digital images with the rights to share on social media, make unlimited downloads on unlimited devices and print at the place of your choice — or through our professional lab at Walgreen’s prices.
To prepare you for your engagement session, we have created a digital Engagement Session Guide and we mail our own engagement session style guide directly to your house! Our brides absolutely love this.
We're looking forward to getting to know you and your wedding plans over a cup of coffee at our meeting spot. Can't meet us in Grand Rapids? Not to worry – we love to do a Facetime or Skype Date! Amazing photography starts with getting to know each other. When we meet for your initial consultation, you can expect to meet both of us as we dive further into the details of your wedding day.
