Husband and Wife Team                          Serving Lake Orion, Detroit and Michigan                                                                        

Russell Photography is a professional husband and wife photography team working out of our creative home studio, on Lake Voorheis, in Lake Orion, Michigan. Michelle and I always photograph our weddings together. Two experienced wedding photographers will photograph your wedding for the price of one!  It seems so often we are told ”you didn’t miss a thing”.

We bring an army of the latest photographic equipment, cameras, lenses, flash, and backup equipment, to all of our weddings, whether the venue is local in Lake Orion, Oxford or Waterford, or located in Detroit or any of the venues in the tri-county area. Together, as a team, we offer our bride and groom a  creative, artistic, photo-journalistic, and candid-approach photography through the differing eyes of both a man and a woman.                                                 

We feel the traditional family and bridal party shots after the ceremony are an important part of your day and. We are expert in capturing these photos creatively and efficiently. As time goes by, the photos you posed so patiently for after the ceremony will become more important to you with each passing year. Also, should you choose to have bridal prep in your coverage, you have a woman taking those photos. Having a man in the bridal prep setting makes many brides uneasy and may disrupt the ladies karma.

Wedding Photography Our Focus
Certainly wedding photography and senior photos are our first love. In addition, we photograph families, children and sport. We have been the University of Michigan Cheer Team Photographers for almost 20 years, going back to the beginning of the century in 2000.

It’s hard to believe we have photographed over 600 weddings. If we don’t have a wedding on game day, you’ll find us on the field at the Big House photographing the Michigan cheer team.

Love of Photography
Our love of Photography goes back many years, to the days of film. But, there is so much more which can be accomplished with the digital imaging of today. It is so gratifying to witness the love between couples as they exchange vows in front of family, friends, and Deity.

We capture that love and cherished moments forever, in beautiful wedding photographs. Capturing your joy and happiness during that once in a lifetime party, the reception, tops off our photography of your perfect day.

All About You on Your Day
It is a high honor and great responsibility to be a wedding photographer. We bring passion to each and every one of our weddings to provide beautiful photographs of your perfect day. If you see a tear in our eye, don’t be concerned. We still cry at weddings, even after photographing so many. Rest assured, we’ll capture all the moments you’ll love.

Our wedding photography is about you, the bride and groom. So many photographers make your special day about their own photography. That is not how Russell Photography works. We offer our couples a stress free photographic experience. We'll ask if you would like to take a photo and make suggestions. We never demand or command our couples.

Our style of photography is tailored to mesh with the style of our bride and groom. We approach our bride and groom as key members of their support team. Michelle and I are retained to capture beautiful photos for you. Beyond that, we feel it is our job to help make your day perfect; everything you ever dreamed it would be, and give you the style of photography you love.

You will like us as much at the end of your day as you did when you booked us and love the beautiful photographs we take for you. We’ll be an important part of your perfect day.  Perhaps this is the reason so much of our work is from referrals.
