I love weddings.  I love them so much that about 90% of my photography business revolves around weddings and engagement sessions.  I know this is super cliché, but I love love.  

My favorite kind of wedding doesn't have so much do with the location but more the chemistry between the couple getting married.  If you love to cuddle, kiss, hug, and let your guard down, that is the stuff that I love!  Posing doesn't have to be stiff so let your worries about that just go.  Literally like 80% of the people who contact me say "I'm not good at posing" or "I feel silly in front of a camera and get weird".  YOU ARE NOT ALONE TRUST ME.  As long as you are open to laughter, and embracing, you will be able to pose.

Locations:

I travel all over the lower peninsula of Michigan to photograph weddings.  I'm based out of Muskegon, MI and I will travel anywhere within 2 hours of Muskegon without charging any additional travel fees.  Anything further than that, just ask, and I'll get you a quote.  My quotes for travel are typically just enough to cover some gas, a couple of road meals, and a hotel room (if you need me at your wedding till later in the evening).  So whether your wedding is in Mackinac Island, Mackinaw City, Charlevoix, Traverse City, Ludington, Muskegon, Grand Haven, Grand Rapids, Lansing, Detroit, Kalamazoo, St. Joseph, Chicago or anywhere in-between, I'd love to photograph it for you! 

I also am totally willing to travel to other states to do weddings as well!  I love the adventure of going to new places and seeing new areas!

RATES:

Please contact me using my contact form if you're interested in booking.  Couples can expect to spend roughly $1800-$2800 on coverage.  Every wedding is different, though, which is why I like to speak with everyone personally and find out exactly what they are planning before just tossing out a rate.  I respond within 24 hours if messaged M-F, and under 48 hours on the weekend (since that's when I'm usually doing photo shoots and not spending time in my office).

The Mackinac Island Package:  

Planning a wedding at Mackinac Island?  I love to travel there!  My standard Mackinac Island package is $3800 flat rate and covers up to 10 hours of wedding day coverage and travel expenses for 2 photographers (gas, ferry tickets, hotels, & meals).  This rate is good for any location on the island including the Grand Hotel, Mission Point, Harbour View Inn, and the Inn at Stonecliffe.  I do not do hourly packages on the island.  I arrive on the island the day prior to the wedding and stay there overnight, so that I'm able to be at your "getting ready" location without the worry of not making it onto a ferry on time.  Please make sure to get your Mackinac Island wedding package booked at least a year in advance of the wedding, to ensure I have adequate time to book a hotel stay there (rooms fill up fast).  If packages are booked too late and certain hotels are already full, I will need to stay off the island and increase the total to cover additional ferry fees.

Crystal VanAntwerpen was in short Amazing. Fabulous really. She made us feel so comfortable and that is not an easy thing for me to feel in front of a camera. She took in her surroundings took fantastic shots and now my husband and i have the most amazing set of pictures to remember our day! Thank you Crystal! Also important to mention... her professional and positive demeanor were amazing to come across after many negative interactions with other wedding vendors.... If you want a talented photographer who has an authentic and trained eye she’s your gal....
