As a Michigan wedding photographer with almost three hundred ceremonies under the belt, I understand that every wedding celebration is different.

Are you daydreaming about an intimate Michigan wedding and you can't wait to walk down the pine needle layered isle, lit with candles, witnessed by the closest circle of the most important people in your lives? But perhaps you are totally ready to go full elopement mode in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, in a dramatic Pictured Rocks location that means so much to both of you!

You two are intentionally choosing to celebrate your immersive Michigan wedding or elopement experience in a way that is your own & I will walk/dance/run with you to help you capture your dreamy vision of the day in timeless photography and videography.

MY STYLE

"Yana is a true artist with a journalistic sentiment and a well trained eye for capturing a feeling, a setting..."

As a Michigan wedding photographer I document raw affection, authentic moments, delicate details, fleeting touch and loving interactions.

Intimate weddings and elopements are becoming a unique alternative to traditional weddings all over the world. Couples are opting to marry under the stars, at airbnbs, on the beach, anywhere beautiful.

Michigan

Intimate weddings and elopements are perfect for couples in love with nature and the great outdoors, for adventurers and free spirits that want to have an intimate immersive day event instead of a big traditional wedding with a couple hundred guests. Intimate wedding or elopement is for you if:

1. YOU PREFER A STRESS-FREE DAY AUTHENTIC TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP

2. YOU VALUE EXPERIENCES OVER THINGS

3. YOU BELIEVE YOUR VOWS SHOULD BE PERSONALIZED

4. YOU WANT YOUR DAY TO BE ABOUT THE TWO OF YOU, NOT OTHERS' EXPECTATIONS

5. YOU DON'T LIKE TO HAVE THE PRESSURE OF A BIG WEDDING PRODUCTION

6. YOU WANT TO HAVE FUN WITHOUT REGRETS!

THIS MEANS YOU JUST ENTERED A UNIVERSE

OF POSSIBILITIES.

HOW EXCITING!

The typical wedding day of 10+ hours can be stressful and the pressure to create an event for hundreds of guests in this added uncertainty can feel overwhelming. Instead, you can plan an intentional celebration with your one and only in a beautiful landscape or an intimate venue along the Lake Michigan. You can say your vows privately, under the pines, overlooking the Lake Superior or while you are sitting in a canoe on the Manistee river. Intimate wedding ceremonies are incredibly emotional and powerful. Being a Michigan wedding photographer for the past decade, I can help you craft your dreamy day!
