When I made the move from a 20-year career in photojournalism to shooting interesting couples in love, I brought the same sensibility that makes for great stories, which is a genuine love of humanity and a commitment to authentically capture natural moments. No fakin’ it, nothing canned, no cheese. No hysteria - just great pictures.

I’m Annie, and I will show up, make you laugh, let you be who you are and deliver superior images. My job is to capture fully alive moments – funny, reverent, serious – and tell your compelling story, the one in which you are the leading role.

While I love Detroit and Pittsburgh, I photograph celebrations of distinction and character, worldwide, from destination weddings to Jennifer Anniston’s 40th birthday to Muhammad Ali’s 70th. My work has appeared in Grace Ormonde, Sports Illustrated and National Geographic, but perhaps the most important place it will reside is in the wonderful memories found in your gorgeous wedding album.

Annie was definitely our best wedding vendor! Easy to work with, great listener, reasonably priced, professional, excellent online gallery, and a completely real and engaging personality. I would highly recommend her for any type of photography needs. She was laying face down on a wet sidewalk covered in leaves in the rain for our wedding photos! Go Annie! We've received so many compliments and our families are very happy with Annie's work... can't wait to hang our wedding photos up!!

Annie was the ideal photographer from start to finish. She was very responsive, incredibly creative, and always on the lookout for little things here and there to make our big day better. Annie is not the type of person to sit back and just take pictures - she is on her feet around the clock looking for the perfect shot and trying to make the best of every second.

After the wedding, my wife and I felt that we would have wanted Annie there, camera or not, just because of the great energy she brought to the event. Her positivity and outward excitement helped to make our wedding care-free, fun, and beautifully documented!

To say Annie was amazing is an understatement. Not only were the lines of communication always open, be it phone or email, but she took all of the stress out of organizing this part of our wedding. Since we were planning for a wedding in one city from another, this was a huge help. But more than that, she did what a lot of other people don't: she listened. By getting to know us through casual conversations about non-wedding-related things (like life, work, family, friends), she really got who we were as people and as a couple. This allowed her to suggest locations and set-ups for the photographs that were totally us without feeling stiff, stodgy, or silly. And when we suggested a spot for photographs (like at a bowling alley that was important to us and our relationship history), Annie not only agreed to go there for photos, she ran with the idea and we have great pictures that completely encapsulate the fun of our wedding day and the importance of that place to us.

Annie was a godsend for us, and she (and her partner, Lake) endeared herself to our friends, families, and guests. The two things people raved about after the wedding? The food and Annie. Across the board, everyone loved her — beginning with us. The photos are beautiful — how could they not be? She's an incredible photographer who approaches things with a photojournalist's eye, which was exactly what we wanted in a wedding photographer. But Annie was more than that to us. She really was an important part of our wedding day, and we can't imagine our wedding without her as a part of it. We were very lucky to have her there, and we're really lucky to now have her in our lives.

We were so happy to have found Annie and Nancy. I had looked at a lot of photographers in the area and decided what kind of photography I wanted, a mix of posed and photo journalistic, and that I wanted to photographers during the wedding to get a mix of guests and us. I had picked up a card for Annie at the location we choose for our wedding and couldn't wait to get home to look at her website. I was really pleased with what I saw and we decided that she would do our engagement photos before we committed to booking her for the wedding. After getting back our engagement pictures we knew we needed to book Annie as soon as possible. In the weeks before our wedding the extra mile Annie goes to making sure you get what you want from your pictures really began to show. She first asked for a list of "must have pictures" and discussed with us how that would work into our time schedule (we had our ceremony and reception at the same location, cutting down on time between the two). Then she carefully planned out when she would be there and start taking pictures allowing me to organize family and wedding party. The night of the rehearsal I was shocked to turn around and see Annie there with her camera walking through all of various ceremony locations (we had an outdoor ceremony with two rain plans). She stayed for each location to see where we would be standing and guests would be seated. Of all of the weddings I have been in/to and friends that have gotten married I had never heard them say their photographer came to the rehearsal. This step to me was above and beyond and really showed when we got our pictures back. In the end our pictures were beautiful and we get compliments all of the time when people see them, including complete strangers.

I can not recommend Annie and Nancy highly enough. We have had some professional pictures taken since and while they were nice, we always find ourselves comparing them to the ones Annie took. If we ever find ourselves back in the Pittsburgh area or Michigan and need photos taken I will not even look for anyone else to take the photos. We couldn't have asked for better pictures and would and do highly recommend Annie to anyone looking for a photographer.

There is not enough great things to say about Annie. We love her! Everyone at our wedding loved her - people are still (3 months later) calling and commenting about the wonderful photographer we had. There was not a moment missed!!! My husband and I both feel that her presence at our wedding added to so much of the beauty of the day. She was a calm warm friendly presence that was not a photographer but apart of our family. She met and captured everyone.

She has been described as a ninja, by my husband of course, because whenever it was time for a picture, there she was, snapping away and then disappearing into the shadows. My father in law said she was like a bird flying all around. The same applies for Nancy. What a team!!!! We were so lucky to find them!!!! I look at my wedding pictures allllllllll the time!!!! I love them, the pictures and Annie and Nancy!!!!

I can't say enough about Annie. Throughout the entire wedding planning she was a source of my sanity. She was always there for me, beyond what any photographer would do. Even after the wedding. She has completely touched our lives. Annie is the best photographer, person and friend!!!!! I would love to offer any other feedback to anyone - my email is jackie61280@gmail.com

Annie was absolutely amazing!! My wife and I could not have asked for a more enjoyable experience! She met with us multiple times before the ceremony to capture all of the information she could on the feel of the wedding and what we were looking for out of our photography experience.
At the wedding, she brought an assistant, Nancy, with her to capture every moment of the day. They arrived 3 hours before the wedding to take pictures of us getting ready separately, and took some beautiful shots we may not have had otherwise. Having the two photographers also gave us different perspectives on the events, such as an aerial view of the wedding and intimate close-ups of the ceremony. Rather than having to run back and forth and missing potential moments, having both present captured everything. Annie and Nancy stayed until the very end of the reception, and even offered to stay for the bonfire afterward to take more pictures. She never pressured us on time or gave a set hour rate- she was there to capture the entire experience no matter what time the festivities ended.

Most importantly, in my opinion, she was the antithesis of many other photography agencies we've had experiences with. She never encouraged us to pose oddly for any photos and was more concerned about capturing a natural moment than a forced one. As a result, our pictures were amazing and truly showed the joy of the day. She was definitely worth every penny!

Annie was beyond perfect and we'll never be able to find the right words to describe how beautifully her pictures tell the story of our wedding.You couldnt ask for a better person to work with either!
Annie was there capturing every moment but was never "in the way" as I have heard other brodes say about the photographers they had. We had family members who didn't shed one tear during the entire wedding, crying their eyes out watching the slideshow of our wedding pictures!! We will never be able to thank her enough for everything. When it comes to a wedding the photographs are what you will have 20,30,50 years later and Annie has made stunning memories for us!!! We cannot say enough wonderful things about her. I wish that every bride could have her as their photographer on their wedding day!!!

Annie and Nancy was just the perfect modern photographers. They were extremely dedicated to capturing every detail, non-intrusive, and so professional and nice. We had a blast having them photograph for us, and the pictures are truly wonderful. I really don't think you can find people with better equipment, experience, skill and true enthusiasm. I'd recommend them to anyone, but be sure to contact them early as they get booked quickly!

Annie was wonderful. She was so easy to work with and really made taking pictures fun. Our pictures are amazing and really tell a story. We can relive our wedding day everytime we look at the pictures. Our guests commented on how the photographers never missed anything and we had 500 guests at our wedding. We also had a photo booth and that was just great. Our guests had so much fun with that and it was great way to have pictures of our guests.
