PERSONALIZED & INCLUSIVE WEDDING COVERAGE. We know what makes weddings special, and we know how to document it. We capture real moments with a cultivated eye.

We predominately work in Detroit, Grosse Pointe, and the surrounding suburbs, but we are open to destination weddings.






Our favorite weddings stand out in memory not for the lavish details (though some had them) but because our clients knew what was most important and stuck to their vision. Their events were meaningful and distinctive - and the sense of connection between the bride and groom and their friends and family was palpable. Showing that connection is important to us. We are junkies for family rituals, unscripted moments, and unrestrained emotion.

We will document your wedding day with great care and attention to the details that are important to you. Our goal is to create images that faithfully tell the story of your day. When you look at your wedding album, we want you to feel the excitement, joy, and love you experienced when you got married.






When you hire West Park Photography, you have the advantage of working directly with the owners. We don't believe in second shooters - with us you get the benefit of two fully qualified, experienced photographers. We photograph every event together, so on the wedding day we each know our jobs and can execute them efficiently. Our styles complement each other and let us tell one cohesive story from two unique vantage points.

We were fortunate to discover photography at an early age, and we both have over 15 years of experience. When we started, digital didn't exist and we spent hours in darkrooms huddled over contact sheets. We still love film and can shoot it on request. Because we got our start before Photoshop, we know how to get things right in camera and offer a high degree of technical skill. We know our craft and want to deliver the best images possible for our clients.

We limit ourselves to about 20 weddings a year so we can invest the time in getting to know our clients. If we sound like a good fit, please get in touch - we'd be delighted to find out more about your event and how you want it photographed.

Thanks for stopping by!

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Proof CD of All Images, Thank You Cards
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
As wedding photography specialists, working with varied lighting conditions goes with the territory. We pride ourselves on our technical abilities and like getting things right in camera.
Is your media preference film or digital?
We predominantly shoot digital, however we do enjoy working film. If film is important to you, we can absolutely integrate it into our wedding coverage.
How many photographers do you work with?
When you hire West Park Photography, you are working directly with the owners, and we photograph every wedding together - which we feel is a distinct advantage. We are both highly qualified photographers and you never need to worry about an inexperienced second shooter who's work isn't on par with the primary photographer. A lot of times a second photographer isn't adding a lot of value to your package, but with us, it really means something.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes, of course. We have back-ups for our back-ups. To not have them is crazy!
Do you charge for travel?
Travel fees will apply for any location more than two hours or 75 miles from our studio. This is mainly to protect you. Between summer road construction or our unpredictable winters, we don't want to be driving any long distance on your wedding day. We prefer to arrive the evening before to guarantee we will be at your event promptly, well rested, and ready to document your day.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
We reserve copyright of all images we create - which is typical for any professional studio. However, you will get a written release which allows you to have your images printed anywhere.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes.
What kind of albums do you offer?
We offer beautiful flush mount albums in a wide variety of cover options - from traditional to cutting edge, we can come up with something customized to your taste. All images are custom designed by us and are completely unique. (If you would like to see examples, visit our blog, and then click on "albums" under the category heading.)

West Park Photography takes beautiful pictures, but they are terrible at communicating. If you are looking for quick responses and answers to your questions don't choose West Park Photography. Weddings are stressful enough and you shouldn't have to beg your photographer to get back to you with simple answers to simple questions. We emailed them numerous times and called several times asking for an estimated date on when we could expect to see our wedding pictures. When they finally responded after weeks and months of frustration, they only gave excuses and never answered our questions. Very unprofessional.

Save yourself the hassle and DO NOT use West Park Photography. Very unprofessional and communication is horrible. They will go into hiding once they have your money and your problems will never get resolved. Pictures are decent, but there are so many great photographers around Metro Detroit...do yourself a favor and look elsewhere!

A friend of mine use Lynn and Andy as their wedding photographers and I had to ask for their info as I loved the way her photos turned out.

When it came our turn to meet Andy and Lynn, I knew we didn't have to look any further. They were incredibly relaxed helping us to relax too and are extremely in tune with your individual needs and style. They are fun and funny, making posing seem more natural. They have an incredible eye for good shots and know plenty of great "photo opp gems" around the area.

I would recommend them in a heart beat!

West Park Photography went above and beyond anything my husband and I could have hoped for when it came to our Wedding photography. I love looking through all of our photos as it truly captures the day, not a moment or detail seemed to have been missed. If you want a photographer who is professional and willing to work with you on any of your random and strange requests (and believe me we had some strange requests) West Park Photography is the way to go. We constantly are getting told how amazing our pictures turned out, and how well they captured our wedding day.

If you're on the hunt for attentive, professional photographers who will listen to you and also offer helpful suggestions based on years of experience, look no further than West Park Photography. I stumbled upon their portfolio by accident and was so blown away by their previous photo shoots that I scheduled a consultation immediately. They proved their worth after capturing an amazing set of engagement photos for my husband & I at the DIA (even accommodating our very hectic schedule). They are extremely flexible, working with last-minute changes up until the day of my wedding, and I have an exquisite set of wedding photos to show for it. They're down-to-earth, good people who are skilled at their craft. I cannot recommend West Park Photography highly enough!

Absolutely wonderful! Not only did they photograph our wedding and capture moments I didn't even know happened, they also did our engagement session. We didn't want an engagement session - but I am so glad we did. Every photo turned out amazing, and we have memories to last a lifetime! I cannot wait to see the final albumn (my must-have)! They were a pleasure to work with - fun, relaxed and most of all, talented!

Lynn and Andy are very talented! They did a fantastic job keeping in communication with us through all of the wedding prep since we live across the state. They were very professional and flexible which led to an amazing experience. We just got our proofs back and they really captured the moments and how we were feeling that day. Thanks guys!

West Park Photography has customers for life in my husband and I. Andy & Lynn's personality, creative energy and flexibility can help put any camera shy person at ease. We were so happy with the results. They captured the tone of the day perfectly. Highly recommended!

My biggest regret on my wedding day was not being able to freeze time. The day went by way too fast. When I got my pictures back, I realized that my photographers were able to do that for me. Going with Lynn and Andy was the best decision I made for my wedding. I was on a budget and I needed quality and value and they exceeded my expectations in both categories. If I had a million dollars, I would still go with West Park Photography. They are amazing.

Andy and Lynn are great to work with and when we need photography services again we will definitely use them! They are very organized, professional and have great ideas. When we viewed our wedding pictures for the first time they exceeded our expectations. The pictures were exactly what we wanted them to be. Together they work as a low key team snapping shots and coming out with some of the best pictures that you didn't even know they took! Their photojournalistic style was truely beautiful for telling the story of our special day! All day we were at ease knowing that Andy and Lynn would do a great job and they did, thank you so much again for capturing our memories, Elisha and Brian

Lynn and Andy are tremendously talented! Not being very artistic myself, I knew I wanted more than traditional, stuffy wedding photos, but I didn’t know exactly how to translate that desire. Lynn and I traded emails and had several conversations before the wedding to share ideas and examples of what I was looking for. I knew well before the wedding that Lynn and Andy’s style was perfect for our wedding. My husband, John, and I were also thrilled with having 2 photographers. It really helped to parallel-path and save time between the wedding and ceremony (Andy worked with the guys and Lynn worked with the girls). I also was impressed by their chemistry with each other. They serve as their own sounding board on the technical and creative aspects, keeping a low-key, stress-free experience for the bride and groom. We trusted them completely and it paid off in our photos! Their dedication is also more than I could have asked for. From the engagement session through the end of the wedding day, they were there from start to finish. I don’t think they missed a bit of action from mimosas at the salon at 9AM to the last dance of the night. All in all, it was a great experience and given the choice to do it all over again, I’d definitely go with West Park Photography.
