Tim Blake's Photographic Studio
Plainwell and Kalamazoo, MI
Wedding photography is a blend of artistry and rapport. Artistically, using the light around me as a paint brush, I use the connection between a bride and groom and their friends and family to create timeless portraits. These don't just happen by taking hundreds of snapshots. They are created by having a wonderful relationship with my clients and knowing how they interact together. This allows me design a wedding book that shows this true love and connection they share.
Building rapport with your photographer allows you to be comfortable with and to trust the photographer to portray this wonderful story. The relationship between a photographer and a Bride and Groom is a very intimate one. We are together all day to tell this story of love. I offer a very contemporary style with a traditional flare. Every wedding and couple is different and I see that when I'm creating your images.
When you begin your journey of hiring a photographer, the two most important things to look for are: Style and a Connection. Look closely at style of portraiture and candid photography. This is your photographers comfort zone and most will not veer far from it. I truly believe the connection you have with your photographer is extremely important In order to obtain those unique shots, the Bride and Groom, their family, and their guests must feel at ease with the artist. A combination of both will thrill you for generations!
