Thanks for your consideration of Platinum Bride Weddings LLC. Our fast growing team would love the opportunity to speak with you about your wedding and demonstrate how we can provide services at affordable prices. Our team of photographers live in Southeast Michigan but we are expanding our reach to many other States by establishing partnerships with top notch vendors in all 50 States including Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Some team members will travel to nearby States without travel fees if your date is reserved far enough in advance. Travel fees in most cases are fully waived based on your total package investment.
Every couple has the opportunity to speak with one of our skilled lead photographers prior to your wedding dates. If you don't want to drive far distances, we can plan everything by E-mails, exchange a bunch of text messages, and discuss all details by phone months before your wedding. Dates are reserved up to 18 months in advance. We require a retainer to book any packages and we do accept credit card payments.
I hired this company after being offered a discount at a bridal show- after getting to know them at our engagement shoot we figured out what poses and shots work for us, and now I couldn't be happier with our wedding pictures! They were very open to suggestions, asked about what shots we might want, and were flexible about timelines and working with rainy weather. Great value for the price!
As our crazy winter winds down, I wanted to take the time to thank you for EVERYTHING that you have done for us!… You captured incredible photos for our engagement and we are beyond happy with our final wedding photos you gave us a few months ago. Not only were you a huge part of our wedding day but you were also a huge help in structuring and executing a seamless event. Everything was perfect - from the weather to having a few extra minutes prior to the ceremony to just breathe, we couldn’t have asked for anything more. You’re amazing for toughing it out with the guys at our home! From our meetings helping an indecisive bride decide what she wants to being in your element with your shoes off in the hotel bed to take photos, you both are awesome and I couldn’t have asked to spend the day with more talented photographers. Thank you both for making such an incredible team and taking our special day to the next level!
Photos were one of the most important details for us when we were planning our wedding, and we cannot be more happy that we chose the Platinum Bride as our wedding photography team! Ray (lead photographer), Melissa (secondary photographer) and Rob (videographer) were amazing to work with. We received our album a month later, and I kid you not- when I opened the album tears ran down my face because I felt the same emotions I had on our wedding day! These photo's were so incredible, and looking at them felt like we were reliving THE BEST DAY EVER! Thank you guys for being part of our special day, and helping us to be able to relive this day time and time again through your amazing work.
Our experience with Ray and his team was phenomenal! Working with them was a breeze especially in the in the early planning stages. They were great at making sure all the bases were covered. The day of made sure everything went as planned, and was there to lend a supportive hand, even outside of their expected duties as photographers. The image process after our wedding day was also a huge perk. We got our proofs the day we got back from our honeymoon in Hawaii! When I viewed the images I was even more delighted, they captured everything perfectly and we can remember all of the happy, silly, and sentimental moments of our wedding day. Ray was truly the best! I recommend him in the highest regard for any occasion.
I got married last June, and both photographers were so easy to work with. I don't consider myself or my bridesmaids to be naturals in front of a camera, but the helpful tips, friendly suggestions and artistic sense created very natural looking shots, even the ones that were posed. I was tired by the end of the day and I can only imagine how tired our photographers must have been, running around, directing us, scouting out locations ahead of us, etc. But the never let it show, always kept us moving and on time. I chose this team of photographers because their photos have a classic look to them, and everyone at Platinum Bride are serious artists with the experience and maturity to know what looks good not just now, but in five or ten or twenty years. Post-wedding processing took four weeks, and the bonus box with USB drive and canvas prints arrived just as promised within 30 days. I also appreciated how they were flexible in choosing a photography package that fits perfectly with our style and budget. They did not require us to buy a ridiculously priced album as part of the package as most photographers always seem to do, but will suggest where to buy prints and albums if you ask. They were also willing to stay extra hours at the end of the night if our party went longer than expected, and cut us a deal for those hours. Thank you Platinum Bride! Your photos are our most precious keepsake from that special day and I am so happy I chose your company!
I don't have enough space to write about how amazing our experience with this team was. The whole experience from start to finish was excellent. When we were first planning, photography was one of the most important things to us, so we had contacted about 13 photographers, but Platinum Bride Weddings was my top choice based on their style of photography. After we met with Ray the first time I remember telling him at the end of the meeting that we would think it over and contact him shortly. We walked out of his office and I looked at my now husband and said, "So we are definitely going with him, right?" "Oh yeah. For sure." He is incredibly professional, does excellent work, and is a lot of fun. Honestly, my entire bridal party, my friends he sat with at dinner, and my parents fell for him right away. He's just really cool and easy going. My partner and I did not go into this having any idea what we wanted photography-wise and both being quite awkward about posing for photos. In the end our photos were fun and happy and beautiful--which is exactly what I wanted. My husband and friends were super goofy and they just rolled with it. Other awesome things about Platinum Bride: pricing is INCREDIBLY reasonable. Especially for the quality of work and having 2 photographers all day. They also did engagement photos (which I highly recommend) and those were amazing. After our engagement photos, several of my on-the-marriage-path friends asked for his contact info. He brought a tag gun to our reception. Seriously. When my bustle failed to hold up my dress of 10,000 ruffles enough that both my Dad and husband stepped on it and ripped it prior to our first dance (apparently a common occurrence), threatening to ruin the dance we had planned (hard to dance a hustle and waltz with people constantly stepping on your gown, Ray came to the rescue with a tag gun and helped my friend tag up layers of ruffles out of the way--and it actually worked. #Hero. Love working with Ray and his team and will give them lots of referrals in the future!!
