Wedding Portraits, Photo Booth, or Event Photography- We offer you only the best!

Our Photographers Philosophy:
"As a wedding photographer I have a great responsibility that I take very seriously. In 30 years you will look back at your wedding through my eyes, not your own. I must capture your heart on your wedding day in order to create the best memory possible. I can't have a bad day on your wedding day. With over 150 weddings under my belt I feel I am successful at capturing your heart"- Brandon

Do you want your wedding day to be as stress free as possible?

"My job as a wedding photographer isn't just about photography, but about directing, and producing. When a bride or groom are stress, there photography will suffer. I don't ever like to see anyone stressed out, so it is my job to help in little ways to take that stress away. When everyone is asking you "What do you want?" I am there to support you in "Here are your options, my suggestion". I allow you to lean on me when you need help, because when you are stress free, your wedding photos will be amazing!" - Brandon

A lifetime of memories

"Your wedding photos are more than just pictures on a disc. You are a busy person and after your wedding I don't expect you to do my job as a photographer by having to print all your own photos. I don't want you to be the bride who doesn't have any photos after 3 years. The disc we give you has most of the work completed for you. My goal is for you to be able to print any photo straight off the disc without having to spend your time making "corrections" to the photos. Your investment in our services is an investment in your memories of your wedding."

Our Photo Booth is a great addition to any event

People love photos of them having a great time with friends and family, but don't like taking the time to print them. Our photo booth offers a great way to "Have fun" and get a professional quality print to remember the "Fun" you had. Our Photobooth doesn't limit you on size or background. The typical setup is 4-6ft wide by 6-10ft deep, but it can accommodate any size you like. We bring clean, fresh, fun props for you and your guests to be creative with. You leave the photo booth with a 2x6 inch print for you and 1 copy for the scrapbook. Our booth also has a 10 Sec video option where your guests can leave you a personalized greeting! We don't stop at just printing out 2x6 photo strips. We also have the ability to upload your favorite images to Facbebook from an IPad. Our photo booth starts out at $750 but discounts are available for Non-Profit, and when booked along with a wedding photo package.

2 Photographers- We attempt to always have Brandon and his Wife Emily, but when Emily isn't available a suitable trained Female Assistant will be substituted.

Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
No more than one wedding a day, and no more than events per weekend if able.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
In the event Brandon is unable to attend, a qualified experienced professional will replace him. We currently have a list of 3-4 very qualified photographers that work with us in the event of this misfortune. In 37 years of business at Modern Photographics only one of photographers didn't show up to an event and that was because the photographer passed away the morning of the wedding unexpectedly and this was before cell phones. We experienced a similar event in 2011 when Brandon was in a severe car accident about 7 days before an event. The Bride and Groom were notified within 12 hours of the accident a replacement photographer was acquired within 24 hrs. Brandon still showed up with his jaw wired shut to assist the replacement photographer. We do what we would want done for our wedding or event.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
We bring a minimal of 3 high quality cameras for our 2 shooters. Instead of leaving our backup camera in the bag we shoot with it throughout the day allowing us to know our equipment is good enough to use at any moment. The extra camera and lens allows us to be more creative without having to stop and switch lens during a moment.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
We have enough equipment and lighting plus extras for every event. Extra lighting for the formals, and reception, as well as extra portable lighting for on location.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
We have both hourly and full day coverage available. Full Day = Unlimited- you tell us when to get there, and we don't go home till you are 100% satisfied.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Extra hours are available at our normal $200 per hour rate.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We require a meal for the photographer and their assistant do to the amount of time we are with you at your event.
Do you charge for travel?
If your event is in Michigan we do not charge travel. Outside of Michigan we charge for mileage and/or airfare, car rental, and misc expenses created by the location (carriage charge, ferry, parking) Any travel charge will be agreed upon when booking the event. For any wedding out of United States, we charge additionally for hotel, resort, or additional fees that apply to being out of United States.

You will get a High Resolution Disc of Printable digital files that allow you to print the images wherever you would like. The images are color corrected, lightened, darkened, sharpened, and have artistic effects as the photographer sees them. We are proud that our clients don't have to edit their own photos after the event.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
You can keep your disk as long as you want (forever), but we encourage they make a copy for their safety deposit box and for Mom's and Dads'.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?

SO PLEASED! Brandon and Emily were the photographers for our wedding and they both did a wonderful job. They were full of energy and really knew their stuff! They were more than photographers - Brandon even got us drinks and found an emergency sewing kit for one of my bridesmaids. They were professional, punctual and seemed to really care about our big day. Brandon has a great sense of humor too!

We also rented a photo booth - SO MUCH FUN!!! If you are able I recommend this! The guests loved it and we love having the memories. I worked with Karen a lot as well and she was so wonderful. Thank you all SO very much!

It is hard to know where to begin praising Modern Photographics for their work. From researching our options to planning our engagement shoot to capturing memories on our wedding day, working with Modern Photographics has been an absolute dream.

Brandon has a way of making you feel completely relaxed and at ease in front of the camera. After shooting our engagement photos with him, we knew we had made an excellent choice. Brandon captured our personalities perfectly and we could not have been happier with the end results.

In the weeks leading up to our big day, Brandon made himself available to hash out details and to reassure us that every last memory would be captured. He also made it very clear that he was there not only to work the camera, but to help make our day run smoothly – whatever that might mean! When we arrived at our wedding venue, it was Brandon who carried in my wedding dress. When the flowers arrived, it was Brandon pinning on the guys’ boutonnieres. He and his wife Emily far exceeded our expectations throughout the day.

We had a large wedding party, 20 if you include Jon and me, plus our large families and Brandon and Emily had no trouble directing the crowd and capturing the best shots of all of us. Brandon was even able to make our two, sometimes shy flower girls warm up to the camera and happily comply with his posing requests.

The best part about working with Brandon was that we never felt like a stranger was tagging along snapping our picture throughout our wedding day. He was loved by all and contributed greatly to a stress-free, relaxed, and blissful day. By the time we said goodbye to him at the end of the night, we felt like he was part of our family!

The Modern Photographics team is truly the best and we could not be happier with our choice!

I wish the scale went higher so I could rate Brandon and Emily a 10.0.
Absolutely outstanding work !
As the father of the bride, I couldn't be more pleased with the professionalism and the down-to-earth nature of both photographers.
Their knowledge of the venue, their helpfulness with little details (such as helping the bride's dad with his tie and boutonniere), remarkable ideas for special photos to take (group photo for example) and their obvious devotion to Christ made our special day even more so.
Please make them YOUR photographers for your special day too.

By far the best decision we ever made!!!! Not only are the photos amazing he also did so many things to help out on the big day. Brandon is there to ensure a perfect experience on your wedding day. He even helped with talking to the DJ when they didn't have a song I wanted to hear. He is an artist and an amazing person. You are a fool not to go with Modern!!!!

The small details of a wedding last a day but the memories last a lifetime and Modern Photography has given us that and so much more. The passion that Brandon has is inspiring and his visions of our special day are laid out perfectly to catch every lovable moment. Brandon and his wife were more than just our photographers on that day they were the ones fixing my dress, grabbing us a drink to relax, and providing us with advice and assistance that allowed us to take it all in and put any worries aside. Modern photography made our day amazing!
Eternally grateful,

We loved working with Modern Photographics! Brandon and Emily were awesome throughout the whole process. They did our Engagement photos as well as our wedding photos. I can't explain how wonderful it was to have two creative people working with us on our wedding day. They captured pictures that my husband and I will treasure forever! After the engagement session, the pictures were handed over in a very short time, which was awesome! The wedding photos came back just as quickly! They not only met our expections, but they blew them out of the water! We look forward to working with Brandon and Emily again in the future!!! Thanks!!!

At first, I had doubts about flying the photographer out from Michigan for our California wedding, but every aspect proved it was the right thing to do. Brandon flew out personally, with his wife Emily. A lovely couple, they were there for the whole weekend. Not only did they capture the essence of the wedding and days surrouding it, but put a focus on exactly what we wanted, all the way down to getting those perfect expressions on everyone's face. They even helped with logistics, and helped provide a timeline for some of the smaller aspects that we didn't even think of. The level of professionalism and knowledge was extremely high, and we didn't even think of them as photographers - they quickly just became part of the family, and melded into the atmosphere so well that the subtle capture of true emotion in the pictures is unmatched. The quality was so high, that during a preview of the pictures on Brandon's laptop, my new wife couldn't help but go into a quasi-embarrassing rant about how great they were! If you're looking for the perfect wedding, make Modern Photographics a part of yours.

Modern went above and beyond our expectations for our Wedding photographs. We were so amazed at the pictures that were taken on our wedding. Brandon and Emily were easy and comfortable to work with and made everyone at the wedding feel at ease. We almost felt like they were a part of the family, the way they would jump up to do any little last minute detail that needed to be done, just so I would not freak out and possibly ruin a photographic moment :) The service and quality of pictures you get with modern is well worth the investment. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

The photographer that a bride and groom choose to capture their wedding
day is one of the most important decisions in planning a wedding. The
pictures that adorn your walls for the rest of your lives must be able
to entice thoughts, feelings and senses twenty years from now that are
the same as those that you experience on that special day. This can
only truly happen if your wedding photographer is one that not only
understands the importance of this day, but understands you individually
and as a couple. Brandon at Modern Photography was that perfect
photographer for us, but he was also so much more. In Brandon we had a
photographer who was there to capture every moment of our wedding day,
without being a part of every moment of our wedding day. In other
words, he was able to work behind the scenes and capture the moments
without orchestrating them. He also acted as a pseudo wedding planner,
blocking the little issues of the day from making their way to the bride
and groom. Brandon is very full of life, but that should not be
misinterpreted, as the professionalism and experience that he has is
reflected in both his pictures and his demeanor on your wedding day. We
were truly blessed to have had Brandon and Modern Photography on our
wedding team and can't wait to watch as he captures our lives for years
to come.

I would highly recommend Modern Photographics to any engaged couple in the West Michigan area. Brandon did both our engagement and wedding pictures and gave us exactly what we wanted: artistic photography that fit our creative spirits. They strive to get to the know the customer, and take the pictures the customer wants.
Modern Photographics made our entire engagement/wedding experience unforgettable!
