Our philosophy as a wedding + couples photographer is to capture real, authentic moments that tell your love story. By creating a comfortable environment where you can be yourselves, I'm able to capture the true essence of your relationship and the emotions that come with it. With my romantic + documentary + vintage style with true-to-life colors, you can expect photos that will bring you right back to that special time in your life, even 50 years from now. Say goodbye to stiff poses and hello to genuine interactions with my prompt-based approach. We think life + love story can be preserved in time through photography. When the years have passed and you look back on all those moments, you will be able to tell your whole life story without a word. Now let's go have some fun together, while capturing your unique personalities + your love story! 

Who we are:

 Let us introduce ourselves!

We are Bayge + Elijah, or as Elijah calls me "Bagel + Elijah".

We are based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We are a husband and wife team who have a love for outdoor adventure, quality time with loved ones, and capturing life's special moments. We share a passion for exploring new places, eating incredible food, going to concerts + festivals, and of course, enjoying each other's company. Our two daughters keep us busy and inspire us to capture the beauty and growth in everyday life. Photographing couples in love always leaves us feeling inspired + bonded even more.

They are incredibly talented photographers, but Bayge and Elijah's lighthearted and friendly personalities made the entire shoot even more enjoyable. They created a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, allowing us to be ourselves and fully embrace the experience. Their positive energy is contagious. Throughout the shoot, Bayge and Elijah’s talent and expertise were evident as they expertly guided us, ensuring that every shot was perfect. When we received the final photographs, we were absolutely blown away. Each image captured the love and connection between us in the most beautiful and authentic way. The attention to detail, the use of lighting, and the overall composition of the photos were simply breathtaking. Bayge and Elijah truly went above and beyond to deliver a collection of images that exceeded our wildest expectations. We wholeheartedly recommend Bayge and Elijah for any photography needs.  Thank you, Bayge and Elijah, for your exceptional talent and for making our couples shoot an unforgettable experience!
