About this Vendor

I am a story teller

I am a story teller. Not only in words and writings.. but in moments. I love my job because it allows me to watch the most moving stories. It gives me a key to a world I may have never even have known of. I get to be in the room with a bride when she’s shaking and breathing slowly; clenching the sides of her gown and practically housing thousands of fluttering butterflies. I stand in front of the groom while he starts to hear the foot steps of his bride coming to make her reveal. I get to witness how unexplainably excited you were when he asked you to spend the rest of your life with him. All the heart pounding, life changing, charming, sweet moments eventually become stories..photos help pass them on..and that is my job; to help you tell your story.

Cassie has made me want to plan my wedding over and over again. Not only is her photography stunning and talent out of this world, but her personality and passion really make her one of the most incredible people I have ever had the pleasure of being around. Cassie made what can... Read More be considered one of the most stressful parts of wedding planning an absolute pleasure. Even with different venue changes, frantic emails from me, and only a few month’s notice, she continually amazed me! I loved looking forward to talking to her and her professionalism is above the rest with how collected and organized she made everything. My husband and I are not ones who like being in front of the camera, but about 10 minutes into our engagement session we felt more comfortable than ever. On our wedding day, despite the cold and windy weather, she excitedly trekked downtown Detroit with us and made sure we had all of the shots we wanted while also directing and getting photos I never would have dreamed of. It’s been over two months and I still look at our album every single day. I am so honored to have her mark on such a special day and cannot wait to do more sessions with her. Cassie is not only talented, driven, focused, and professional but also full of contagious laughter and happiness. She is the kind of person you want around during stressful times, but also on the happiest day of your life.
