I believe breakfast can be eaten any time of day...

leggings are the greatest invention, there is always room for cake, and CAFFEINE LIMITS ARE JUST SUGGESTIONS...


and I believe in joyful, true-to-life colored wedding images.


If you're on the hunt for a photographer who will make you belly laugh, capture all of your good sides, and remind you how stunning you are — you are in the right place!

I'm Cynthia, a wedding photographer in Michigan. First, let me say how happy I am that you’re here. It’s certainly not hard to find a photographer with a quick online search, but finding the right photographer for you? That’s an entirely different story.
I want us to be a great fit as much as you do. You’ll spend a good chunk of your wedding day (and engagement session) with me, and we both want that to be an incredible, fun experience. Imagine spending all that time with a photographer who doesn’t hype you up or make you laugh in a way that works for you — no thank you! 
I’ve spent over a decade behind the camera, and I’m excited to bring my expertise and passion for capturing each unique love story to your big day. I’m all in from the moment we book – from working together to craft a perfect day-of timeline, to fixing your hair before capturing the perfect shot of you and your beau, to keeping the groomsmen in good spirits during portrait time, all the way through to your gallery delivery. 
I’m passionate about so many things – motherhood, CrossFit, and coffee are just a few – but capturing the beauty of your unique love story is what I live for!

"The pinnacle question on your mind likely boils down to; "Is Cynthia Mae worth it?" The answer, is unequivocally "yes." She is worth it because her photographs will make you feel as if you waltzed off the page of a wedding magazine... Rest assured, dear bride-to-be, you are not hiring the camera, you are hiring the person behind the camera. And I can wholeheartedly say that person is incredible."
