About this Vendor

Perfect Moments For Your Life

Russell Photography is a husband and wife professional photography team. Michelle, my wife, and I always photograph together. 600 weddings and 20 years ago, we began our wonderful adventure of professional photography. Wedding photography is our passion and first love. We also shoot seniors, families, and sport – we have been the University of Michigan Cheer Team photographers for over 15 years. But, we feel there is nothing more gratifying than witnessing the love between a couple as they exchange vows in front of family, friends and Deity. We get to capture that love forever, in photographs. It is a high honor and great responsibility to photograph a wedding. We bring passion to each and every one of our weddings to provide you beautiful, lifelong memories, of your perfect day.

Wally and Michelle were by far the best choice for wedding photographers. They took incredible pictures and captured every single moment during our wedding that I could've wanted.

Michelle, my wife, and I are passionate about wedding photography. We look forward to every wedding with great anticipation. Wedding photography is hard work and we bring 120% to every wedding we photograph. But when you love what you do, as it is said, you never work a day in your life. Our photographs reflect a constant theme of love. When you have photographers who love what they do, photographing couples in love, wonderful images happen! Michelle and I always ask, never demand We provide a stress-free experience helping our couples to have the best day of their life!
