let's talk about your wedding photographs

with wedding photographer in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Cynthia MAE

your first family heirlooms

Marriage is real, raw, emotional and joyful. Your wedding photos should capture that and so much more. When you choose Cynthia Mae Photography for your happiest day, you’ll rest easy knowing that your first family heirlooms — photographs of the day that a new family began — mean as much to your photographer as they do to you.

I’m Cynthia, an award-winning wedding photographer in Grand Rapids, Michigan, whose ultimate goal is to create a beautiful visual history of your wedding day and the boundless love and happiness brought forth on such an occasion. 
I want you to come away from your wedding day with the incredible memories documented in stunning photographs. In your vows, you’ll promise to love and to cherish, to have and to hold one another all the days of your lives; I want to help you create a visual keepsake that you can love, cherish, have and hold through the good (and bad) days that come with marriage. 
I want these photos to give you a brief escape from the here and now, and help you to remember one of the happiest days of your life. I want you to remember the feeling of your husband’s hand on the small of your back as you first joined the world as a married couple. The intimate kiss that you shared during the first dance. The look in his eyes as you walked down the aisle to join him in pledging lifelong vows to each other. Moments like these are fleeting, and these memories should be preserved for the rest of your life!

Samantha & Jacob

Cynthia did an amazing job photographing our wedding and engagement pictures. Cynthia was very communicative and organized in the lead up to our wedding which took a lot of pressure off our shoulders. Cynthia was a calm and reassuring presence on our wedding day, helping us to relax and enjoy the day. She was incredibly efficient with our time throughout the day, moving us right along throughout each set of pictures according to the schedule we had discussed prior. Cynthia took pictures we will cherish forever! If you want great photographs taken by a wonderful photographer and person, hire Cynthia!

Isabel & Adam

Cynthia brought such a light and calming presence with her (while still being a complete professional) to an otherwise hectic "getting ready" time, and that alone was enough to make me so grateful we chose her to be our photographer. Cynthia was so easy-going but also worked incredibly hard to get the most amazing shots of us, all the while taking into consideration how we were feeling on our day. Our photos were so beautiful, we cannot recommend Cynthia enough!

Hiring Cynthia as our photographer for our wedding was the best decision I made while we were wedding planning. When people tell you your wedding day goes fast you cannot possibly wrap your head around it until you have lived it and FELT how fast a day can actually go. Cynthia kept us on schedule and was a calm presence and delivered photographs to us that were so effortlessly beautiful and in only a few weeks! We find ourselves looking through them over and over again finding our "new favorite" picture from the day. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for capturing our wedding day in a way that blew our expectations out of the water

Hannah & Isaac

Cynthia captured our day so beautifully! From the time she showed up in the morning until the time she left, Cynthia was so helpful and encouraging. She makes you feel like the most beautiful bride in the world, and captures it to make you see it too! If you want a photographer who will make you relive your favorite day over and over again every time you look at your pictures, then she is the one you want!

Jera & Joel

Jen & Dave

From start to finish Cynthia blew me away with her professionalism, communication, overall ease to work with and most importantly her quality of work!! She is so incredibly talented and also just generally sweet and fun to be around (seriously the sweetest person ever!). Wedding planning can be stressful enough but having her there to capture our special moments and to answer any questions we had really made everything easy. I had zero worries when it came to our photos because I knew she was on it. We are beyond thankful that we found her and don't think we could thank her enough for the amazing work she did for us.

Alyssa + Kyle
