I’m Autumn, like the season, I am a photographer and videographer. If you’re looking at this page, you’re probably considering hiring me as your associate or second shooter. In which case that’s fantastic and I am already appreciative that you’re here. Now, I don’t want to waste any of your time, I know the life of a creative business owner is a busy one. So, let’s get to it!
I’m local to Lansing and I love to travel, so don’t count me out if you’re worried that I am too far away.
🎵 Ain’t no mountain high, ain’t no valley low, hunny. 🎵 I’m an extrovert who likes to make lame jokes, and work tv/movie and music quotes into regular conversation. I suck at talking about myself, but I could talk about my dog all day. Animals are my jam, if there’s a pet at a wedding, it’s virtually guaranteed that I’ll snap a few shots of them. Kind people are my kind of people. All love deserves to be celebrated, and a person’s chosen pronouns are important. I value women’s rights, LGBTQIA rights and black lives matter!
About my work:
I’ve been professionally photographing weddings for over a decade; my first paid wedding was in 2011. Being a lifelong learner is important, so I frequently attend classes and workshops to improve my skills and learn new trends and styles. I love being behind the camera in all capacities. To expand my skills and continue learning, I made the leap into videography. I have been shooting video for 2 years and I must say that I love it as much as photography. As a hybrid photo/video shooter, I now feel like my creative capabilities are endless!
Being a personality chameleon, I tend to blend in with just about any group of people. Wedding guests, Brides, Grooms and party members all usually enjoy my presence. I can wrangle all the party members and keep timelines running without being rude. You can always trust this detail queen to grab the detail shots you need to fill up that gallery. From the venue, ceremony space, reception room, cake/desserts, decor and more, I’ve got it covered! When I am not getting details, I’m happy to take my own lead or follow your instructions for assignments. I love to capture both candid and posed moments. I’ll even grab some killer BTS shots of you too! I work well independently using my best judgement and situational awareness. As an associate shooter, I am capable of delegating work to the second shooter with kindness, I am a tremendous team player.
I’m well versed in every venue and lighting scenario. From full sun at the lake to dark wooden barns, poorly lit ballrooms to glass-glared greenhouses. I’ve seen it all and gave kick-ass outcomes regardless of the setting! I am skilled in both on camera and off camera flash, and I am ready for any situation.
Here’s a list of my gear:
Sony A7iii (x2) *mirrorless, full frame, dual cards
Godox AD200pro (4)
Godox AD-B2 (2)
Godox V860ii (2)
DJI Ronin SC Gimbal
+ various light stands, modifiers, softboxes
My shooting style leaves exposure and color as true to life as possible, which makes me a very versatile second shooter. My work can be edited for Light and Airy, True to Life or Dark and Moody (please see examples below)

Referrals from Photographers & Videographers
Autumn has a very consistent style as a second shooter and is very helpful throughout the day. It’s great to have someone who helps keep me on track with the timeline and keep things moving. Her ability to crack a joke and snap me out of a panicked or stressful moment allows me to relax and refocus on capturing photos that I am more than proud of.

Autumn has been a great member of my photography and videography team. Knowing both sides of the profession has made her very versatile and helpful in so many ways. She is kind and friendly. She knows when to step up and lead and she knows when to step back and follow. She is reliable and will go the extra mile to make the day smooth for you as a lead. She is knowledgeable in getting perfect content and also knows how to rock the reception lighting in dark spaces. I highly recommend Autumn to help you fill your team.

I may be a little biased as her friend, but Autumn is an amazing second shooter! She is helpful, attentive, friendly and professional. I trust her with covering areas of the day apart from me and know she’s going to provide images I can and want to share in my couples’ gallery. She is knowledgeable in proper lighting, posing and OCF. And just to add a cherry on top, she gets great BTS content! So if you’re still asking if you should hire her, the answer is YES!

Autumn is so helpful as a second shooter. She is great at details and capturing the moments that as a primary, you rely on a second for. Highly would recommend her to other photographers!
