About Us

We are Metro Detroit & Destination Wedding Photographers

All Photographs on this Page Courtesy of BAMPhoto

Our life is fun and busy, filled with laughter and adventure. Several years ago after getting married ourselves, we decided that we could be great at this. We could give our clients an experience to rave about. We could make friends in the process; friends that would send their closest friends to us for that same incredible experience on their wedding day.

We could sneak a slow dance in here or there or teach the crowd on the dance floor how to Wobble when necessary. Most of all, we could use our vision to create keepsake photographs that will remind people for a lifetime what it was like to be at your wedding....to break it down on your dance floor....to belt out a Journey song....to laugh along with the Bride and Groom on one of the happiest days of their lives.

Heather

Heather Van De Steene

A professionally trained photographer, Heather has been behind a Canon camera for over 15 years. Heather is a former special education teacher, very proficient in the use of (ASL) American Sign Language. She is a full-time mother to our two girls. Heather is a beekeeper at our sister company Three Queens Apiaries, is a director at a summer camp for Deaf and hard of hearing children, and is a hardcore organic gardener.

Heather is detail oriented and excels at tweaking hair, clothing and flowers until the shot is just right. She acts as our business manager, keeper of all things social media, spelling and grammar Czar, and tracks our finances. In other words, she looks fantastic in a cape.

Steve

Steve Van De Steene

A professionally trained photo editor using Adobe Photoshop & Lightroom, Steve is able to quickly remove that pesky telephone pole or garbage can from an otherwise perfect scene. He is adventurous and has no problem climbing a tree, or laying in a puddle to get the perfect angle. He has returned from a shoot many times with torn, muddy and even burnt clothing that has a great accompanying explanation. He manages our SEO, Website, and Marketing. He scours the internet researching photography equipment, editing techniques, or secret session locations.

Steve is an IT Project Manager by day, Web Designer, and climbing gym for our two daughters by night.

Our Mission

We venture to use natural light wedding photography to authentically capture the feelings and emotion of life’s most important moments as they happen while building strong client relationships that extend well beyond a single day or event.

Our Values

We believe that everyone should have an equal opportunity at happiness with those they love in life. We believe that quality wedding photography is an important ingredient in preserving memories in this fast-paced life. We believe that we can run a successful business based on honesty, strong client relationships, and a dedication to quality service. We believe that love, personal relationships, and the environment should always come first. We believe in instilling positivity and a message of empowerment through our photography.

Why We Do It

We love being around people on one of the happiest days of their lives. We love seeing joy and capturing the tears, knowing these memories will be looked at and cherished for years to come. We know that we are personable, polite, compassionate people who can make your wedding photography a positive experience that complements your awesome event rather than takes you away from it for extended periods of time.
