Unique & Affordable
We have several photographers at your wedding (not just assistants!), so that we can professionally capture and document all the parts of your wedding day! One photographer is with the bride and other photographer is with the groom, throughout your day and you will have more than you will realize, of the interactions and details preserved! For some weddings and larger events, we have had from two to five photographers too. Occasionally, for some events and certain destination weddings, we have had only one photographer and accommodated that request beautifully too.
During the group / family portion of the day, we work quickly as a team, to create beautiful lasting family heirlooms for you and your family. At the same time we can create candid / photojournalistic style images, throughout the day, even as one of the photographers is capturing the group images, the other is capturing the candid moments! It's your day and we document it, the way you want it to be! We do our best to make sure that you are relaxed, things run smoothly and we are ahead of schedule, in order to for you to fully enjoy your day! We are flexible, friendly and accommodate special requests too. We make your day the best it can be and create a multitude of images, which make you look and feel your best! Contact us if you want the best in wedding photography and a relaxed, stress free day!
Meet the Principal Photographer
Isabella started out as a nature photographer in 1972. In 1990 her desire to capture beautiful moments, natural light, being on location, as well as her love for people and their interactions, led her to a passion for her specialty, Wedding Photography! She is exceptional at creating an unobtrusive relaxed atmosphere for her work and sometimes creates the interactions she wishes to capture too. She has excellent people skills, is professionally adept and blends easily into a variety of groups and social settings. Her clients love her thoughtful and caring personality and have repeatedly remarked that they enjoy having her there on their wedding day!

Isabella has studied with the top Photojournalistic photographers in the world, as well as some well versed in more Photojournalistic / Traditional styles. She tries to capture the essence and beauty of her subjects, trained in the best facial angles, plus her images tell a story, so that when people see her work they remark, that they felt like they were there at that moment. She has been recognized by many of the photographers at the top of their field, as being truly exceptional. One of her top photojournalistic mentors, told her that she is in the elite, who shoot with the left eye, therefore using the creative right side of the brain to formulate the calculations necessary to complete the exposure, composition, and timing to craft the work, funtions typically done on both the left and right sides.
Isabella has also studied with several wedding consultants and she naturally helps on the wedding day. She has photographed hundreds and hundreds of weddings, all the way from California to Rome, Italy. She spent 6 months living in Italy and developed a sense of style and an appreciation for the culture and arts in the area. She has done small intimate weddings from a handful of people, to large events with over a thousand.
She is a graduate with high honors from Cranbrook / Kingswood school with a wide variety of studies in the Arts, Sciences, Sports and Humanities. While at Cranbrook she created artwork revered by the top in their field. Her mentors told her that the arts would be impossible and she showed them otherwise. She has a gift to envision the completed correct result, before even beginning the piece. She was also the sole recipient to be given the highest awards for her art, in over 25 years at the school.
She also is a graduate of the University of Michigan and her class work ranged from Psychology and Computer Science, to Natural Resources and Medicine. She excelled in creative arts, as well as developing an equally balanced technical expertise to her work. She is exceptional with computers, psychology and mathematics and uses this talent to capture stunning images and create some of the most beautiful wedding albums, people have ever seen, paying close attention to the details.
Not only is each image a work of art, the albums are a collection of works of art too! Isabella enjoys collecting albums for her clients, from all around the world, such as fine Italian coffee style albums, Australian Photojournal matted and flush mount gallery books, Japanese Silk and handmade watercolor paper albums, as well as an array of other domestic and more traditional offerings for the parents too. The albums are like a wedding dress, you need to touch them and see them to experience the full beauty and unique nature of their fine art qualities. She loves capturing people being themselves!
