So you want to know what got me here? I have a BA in Journalism from Eastern Michigan University, and my first job was writing stories and taking photos for the News-Herald in Southgate, Mich. I am now a full-time portrait photographer and award-winning photojournalist specializing in weddings and engagements. I have spent years photographing prep sports, charitable events, magazine covers and families. I have worked for newspapers, Fortune 500s, brides and moms-to-be, all while trying to be the best documentarian I can. It is my great pleasure to bring this experience and more to your big day. - Adam Read less

I have only good things to say about Adam! He is everything we wanted in a photographer for our wedding; very talented, flexible and accommodating, professional, a great personality that was easy to work with and made taking photos so much fun...I could go on and on! He made everyone feel so at ease while taking photos; he has a knack for getting people to laugh and feel comfortable around him, which helps him capture all the personalities of the people in the photos. He was such a nice presence to have on our wedding day, and went beyond the duties of just a photographer. He helped keep track of time so we didn't have to worry about it, and even saved our wedding cake from a 3-year-old almost grabbing it! (We found out about that after the wedding, thank you Adam!) My husband and I agree (along with both of our parents) that he was the perfect fit and was by far our favorite wedding vendor that we picked!! We highly recommend him to anyone!

Adam is by far the absolute best. We got along right away, he's very easy going and light hearted. We had a great time doing our engagement pictures and getting to know him. He's very creative - he will see an amazing shot when no one else can. We just received our wedding photos and they are incredible. He really captured our day and the mood along with it. He is extremely talented and is definitely a photo journalist, telling a story with every wedding he does. He will do the posed pictures if they're important to you, but definitely let him do his own thing. He'll capture moments in a beautiful way. We will cherish our pictures for years to come.

Go with Adam if you can - you won't regret it!!

Adam is an amazing photographer, and we are so glad we chose to use his services for our wedding day! During the entire process, Adam worked hard to accommodate our needs and kept the entire process stress-free. Our photos turned out gorgeous, and our proofs were ready within two weeks of our wedding. I never expected to see them so quickly! It's only a month after our wedding, and I've already seen proofs, ordered photo prints, and received them. Adam's services are expensive, but it was so worth it for us, especially since the wedding photos were one of the aspects of our wedding that we were not willing to compromise. As a part of our package, we also received engagement photos, and those also turned out phenomenal. Our proofs for those were received within a week, Adam went out of his way to accommodate our location, and our session was the most fun I've ever had having my picture taken. In Michigan, I wouldn't recommend any other photographer!

Adam was one of our favorite vendors. We actually picked our date based off his schedule and I am so happy we did. Both he and his assistant photographer kept us laughing and made the family photos painless! The value is not a sacrifice for quality either. He did great work and I love our engagement and wedding photos. Highly recommend.

NOT impressed! I wish that I could say differently considering all that I have left of my wedding are the pictures!

I live out of state and came into town a week prior to my wedding. He was so hard to get ahold of, that I was left the night before planning out the next day! We all know that is one less burden that we want the night before!

He was really great being flexable with a back up plan. All my pictures... Lets just say I have VERY few floor length pictures! How is that possible! I am so dissapointed, all that time spent finding the perfect dress and I can count on two hands how many floor lengths I have. The pictures with "just the bride"... Yeah I'm laying in a corest and set in such a position that my breasts are LOPSIDED!! What angers me on that is prior to him snapping those pictures I asked if they looked lopsided! Lets just say every female who has looked at these pictures have walked away saying they are!

Walking down the aile... NO ONE HAS A FULL LENGTH photo shot except the ring bearer! There is a fence shot of my husband and I, I am hiden behind a fence with him in front! Once again my dress is not in these pictures. I then paid for a photo little booth area set up during my reception... why are these not full lenth? There is more height above everyone's head then needed. There are very few pictures of my guests and I am relaying heavily on my guests photos to build my album!

Once receiving my pictures online, I was once again disappointed by the quality. There were so many pictures that I couldn't believe he posted! Eyes closed, mouth open, just making an unattractive face... Just think he was going for quanity not quality! I am embarassed to have some of these posted! Disappointed all around!

We are so pleased with the results of our wedding photographs from Adam Sparkes. He was a pleasure to work with from start to finish, very patient with all of our questions and requests.

On the day of... Adam and his assistant arrived on time and were great about helping calm my nerves in the middle of a crazy morning! He was up for anything and got some amazing shots on a brutally freezing day in December.

He made sure to capture a little of everything and everyone at our reception. I would recommend him to anyone to trust their wedding or other important day in his hands.

I look forward to working with him in the future as our family grows -- but in the mean we actually asked Adam to do some pictures of my grandparents and those as well came out truly magical.

You will be so happy you book with Adam Sparkes Photography -- your photos will come out beautiful!

Adam was one of the best vendors my husband and I worked with. He is so commited to what he does that it shows in the way he communicates with you and the pictures he takes. I am very shy taking pictures but my husband is more outgoing than I am, but Adam knew how to get me out of my shell. He was reasonably priced and I enjoyed every moment we spent taking pictures. And can I say that when he takes pictures, boy! does he take pictures. Adam goes the extra mile by taking every detail that leads to sort of a story when you look back at your pictures. It was a pleasure working with him and his assistant. Best investment, hands down!!
