love is what we capture.
art is what we create.
Emotional. Candid. Timeless.
As you plan your wedding, you make hundreds of decisions that represent you as a person and as a couple. The venue, the colors, the first dance song, your bridal party...why would your photography be any different? My goal as a photographer is two parts: to capture your wedding day as authentically and artistically as possible, providing you with a timeless portfolio of images to enjoy for generations, and to make the whole experience, from the initial consultation to the delivery of the album, as fun and enjoyable as possible.
To ensure we provide you with the highest level of customer service, we limit the amount of weddings we take each year. Each wedding is treated with the respect that it deserves: timeline design, collaboration with other vendors, location scouting of venues, and hand editing of each image in your portfolio.

"Brian was worth every penny, without a doubt. From the moment we met Brian, we knew he was the right choice. He was professional, courteous and genuine. He has a way about him that makes you feel comfortable and like you have know him for years. The wedding day couldn't have been better. Brian has a way of being present without noticing him. Our photos are incredible! I have certainly missed several hours of work due to sneaking peeks at our photos. Brian captured all the shots we wanted and more. Brian is an extraordinary photographer and an even better guy. You don't meet many people as kind, talented and real as Brian. "
"I knew I wanted Brian to be my wedding photographer before I knew who I wanted to marry! I’m not exaggerating when I say he probably spent upwards of 20 hours just getting to know us and helping us from setting up a timeline for the day of, to recommending other great vendors he was there for guidance. The time he invested into us before our wedding made us certain that he wanted the best for our big day as well...His artwork is timeless, elegant and classic. Brian can’t tell you he’s the best because he’s humble…but I can! He is worth it! Book him, you will not regret it!
"Immediately after seeing his work, we called him and booked him—we actually moved the wedding up a week so that we could fit into his schedule, as it was only 8 months in advance. I cannot stress enough that Brian’s services are worth every penny, if not more. Looking back at the level of professionalism and the quality of the photos, if I could do it again and had to pay more, I would. Brian is a complete professional. Immediately after contacting him, he requested to meet with us to learn about who we are and what we envisioned for our wedding day."
"Brian was everything we hoped for in our wedding photographer. My husband and I live in Chicago, and when we initially reached out to Brian, he spent more than an hour chatting with us via Facetime. When we went back to Michigan to look at our Church and reception venue for the first time, he spent the entire afternoon getting to know us as we walked both venues together. He always made us feel as though we were his priority and ensured he understood what we were looking for in our wedding photos."
"Our portfolio is amazing! Tyler has to keep telling me to stop looking at all the photos. I can't thank you enough for all your hard work. You have such a natural talent and I will never forget how you calmed me down when I was having a breakdown and truly helped the day run smoothly and you did it all with ease!! Thanks for capturing Jenna [sister] and my special moment. I will cherish all these memories forever. I can't thank you enough for that or tell you how much I appreciate you!
"When we met with Brian for the first time we knew instantly that we wanted him to be our photographer. Brian not only makes you feel comfortable, but he makes taking photos FUN! This is huge considering my husband HATES having his picture taken. We LOVE our photos. We got married in an old catholic church in Detroit and the photos that Brian took truly captured the beauty of the church. Not only is his work amazing, but he was able to keep our 22 person wedding party focused during photos and took AMAZING pictures."
"Brian was an absolute joy to work with. We had a small backyard style wedding, and he not only took absolutely stunning photographs, he also helped make sure we didn't miss any key photo opportunities (he really went above and beyond). I highly recommend Brian to anyone looking for a photographer, and especially anyone who loves those perfect candid shots!! We couldn't be happier with the results!"

"By the time it came for our wedding day, it felt like Brian was an old friend, which helped in creating some amazing wedding photos . We were so comfortable around him and in turn our bridal party was also comfortable, making for an enjoyable picture taking experience. My husband and I truly believe that Brian was worth every penny. He helped make our wedding day the best day ever. Even our guests were raving about him and his photos by the end of the night. Brides and grooms, I cannot stress enough, consider Brian Weitzel Photography for your big day!"
"Brian, Thank you is the least we could say. You were a lifesaver for both Brooke and I. I really appreciated your help throughout our wedding day and we were both so relaxed with you. It was a pleasure getting to know you and your work. The way our pictures came out were above our expectations. We love them so much! We will be following you on Instagram and singing your praises."
"I cannot recommend Brian enough and have received SO many compliments on our engagement and wedding photos. He is so quick to respond and so wonderful to work with. We planned from Boston and he was very flexible and willing to work with us and our schedule. We were married on May 14th and we already received our photos [two weeks later.] Just by looking at them, I can feel every emotion I felt that day! He is nothing short of amazing."
"We knew at the beginning of our first meeting with Brian that we wanted him to be our photographer! He brings a level of professionalism that is rarely seen. Whether it was showing up an hour early to scout locations best suited to shoot, or making it a priority to learn the names of our entire bridal party. Brian was a first class photographer from start to finish. We loved all of our photos (engagement session & wedding) and received nothing but good comments on his amazing work from numerous guests. We would recommend Brian to anyone for any occasion!!"
"We used Brian for our wedding in Ann Arbor. We live in Seattle so all of our interactions with Brian before the wedding were done over the phone. He was very flexible to work with us, the time difference, and prompt in answering all of my questions before the wedding (and there were many!). As other reviews say, Brian is very detailed and has great customer service. He did many things throughout the planning process that added just an extra touch. We especially appreciated the quick turn around time for our wedding photos- we received them while still on our honeymoon."
"I feel so fortunate that I decided to go with Brian Weitzel Photography for my wedding photography. Brian was easy going but at the same time professional. He takes his time with you and appears to love what he is doing. Brian went out of his way to scout out our "first look" location and he couldn't have picked a better spot. Our pictures are unique to any others and I am in love with them. He has a classic, timeless style. Brian Weitzel Photography is worth the money and I would recommend him to anyone!"
"I would highly recommend Brian. The experience was unforgettable and the pictures are stunning. He goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable, special, and relaxed at all times. Brian is one of the nicest guys my husband and I have ever met; so it was enjoyable spending time with him. The ability to be personable as well as highly professional is a skill Brian has mastered. His skill and artistic eye behind the camera is exceptional and I believe that is what sets him apart from many. He pays close attention to everything and goes above and beyond. I would hire him again in a heartbeat!"
"From our first meeting we knew that he was the perfect fit for us - passionate and creative but also very organized and methodical. Having extremely large extended families, we needed someone that would take charge and make sure we got the shots we wanted and Brian certainly delivered. "
"I don't know that I even have the words to tell you how amazing these photos are. You managed to capture so many emotions and facets of our relationship; I can see our love for each other, as well as all the joking and laughter that goes between us. I am honestly just in awe. I usually dislike photos of myself; however, I literally could feel myself smiling and reliving all the emotions of that day as I looked through this collection of photos. Not only for the amazing job you did documenting our relationship, but also for making me feel beautiful in these photos. You are incredible at what you do!"
