Lydia | Bridal Session | Kalamazoo Creative Studio | Kalamazoo, MI

August 2, 2023

“Don’t just treat photography as just a job. Make time to create art every once in a while.”​​​​​​​​​

And to be honest, we thought that was the silliest advice we had ever been given. Our business was thriving, we were about to launch into our largest season yet, and we didn’t have time for things like “creating art.”

Fast forward a year later, and the grind was really beginning to take its toll on us, especially Andrea. Weddings days would end so quickly that we didn’t ever feel like we had time to “create.” But instead of simply thinking “that’s just how things have to be,” Andrea sat down one night and dreamed up her first styled shoot, completely unique to her and her vision.

And today, we finally are able to share the stunning results!

We know that we have shared the vendors below, but we truly could not have come close to the beauty of this session without the help of Lydia, Jen, Taylor, Sharon, Laura, and Vanessa.

So be encouraged, photographer. Don’t settle for how things are, but instead, dream about how things could be!
