intentional imagery.

I'm telling ya --- vendors will come and go but your wedding photos are for LIFE.

I am fully aware of how important my role is in your day, and is not something I take lightly. It is a huge honor to be trusted to document a whole day with no do-overs on the moments YOU can't afford to miss. Which is why I strive to be your:

+ kindest vendor
+ most flexible vendor
+ happiest vendor
+ most reliable vendor

Your wedding day is going to be filled with people who LOVE YOU, and I just want to be one of them. Seriously.

I am ALL in.  Let's party!

I'm Phern!

Natalie and Michael chose to celebrate their love with an intimate elopement at a breathtaking mansion nestled in the charming town of Saugatuck, Michigan.

Phern is absolutely amazing to work with and delivers beautiful and timely results! The amount of photos she took & edited for our galleries was incredible - it was very difficult to choose a favorite! Bright colors, beautiful black & whites, a keen eye for backgrounds, & she makes her subjects feel comfortable and beautiful, Phern is a kind and talented photographer.

  If you think you are awkward getting your picture taken... NO WORRIES with Phern, she is a magician.

She was very communicative with us, made us feel like we were in safe hands during our wedding day and is a powerhouse when it comes to getting the best photos and editing them to perfection!

I highly HIGHLY recommend!!!

   Phern is an unstoppable talent! If she could photograph all of my events for the rest of my life, I would have it that way.

We were so excited to have her in Colorado for our couple pictures and a boudoir shoot. Not only is she a great photographer, she is an awesome person and friend! She has such a great eye for detail and is willing to take risks to get the perfect shot (like hiking a mountain at 5 am to catch the sunrise) and makes sure you are always comfortable. 

We got the best photos and are excited to work with her again in the future.

   We cannot say enough good things about Phern. Working her was the best experience.
