Review: Bronkema Wedding : )

  • I really like one of Mike and I walking into the reception. Neither of us are actually looking at the camera but the picture really caught how much fun we were having on that day and it's great to be able to look back on. So many of Gen's pictures were great it's hard to say just one is my favorite.
  • When we first met with Gen we kept talking about how we really wanted to get candid pictures rather than spend a lot of time with poses. Gen was awesome in keeping up with us and our friends and family the whole day to make sure she could catch all the fun times without forcing any shots. Most of our favorite pictures turned out to be the shots that we didn't even know were taken until we got all of them back.
  • We had a complimentary engagement session (with disc) included and a print credit. As a huge bonus Gen ended up bringing along a second shooter that was equally as amazing during the whole day. As kind of an unwritten bonus, Gen was amazing when it came to going above and beyond a "photographer" and helped with small reminders about events at the reception and so on.
  • Her overall personality makes it hard to not be comfortable when working with her. Gen was so accomadating through the whole process (tons and tons of emails back and forth from Florida to Michigan, unrelated vendor recs, etc.) that you knew she was genuinely interested and eager to help. By the time the wedding day got there, there was no worrying that the pictures wouldn't be great.

Review: Wonderful, creative, fun, and organized

  • What was your favorite wedding photo? Too many to pick just one! I love that we have favorites of different angles and poses, I can see all the details from my hair, wedding dress, and shoes. If I had to pick one, I think it would be my husband and I embracing each other from with our wedding venue in the distance, the building looks amazing and it looks so classic! I also love the images she captured of my husband seeing me for the first time as I walked out with my dad.
  • How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? She did a great job, I can't recall any time she was at all disruptive. She was great with candids, we have so many of moments when I didn't know she was there taking pictures. She also helped our day go even more smoothly since she knew the timing of the day's events, she would help to remind me what was going on next, which was a HUGE help with so much going on that day!
  • What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? We chose to have online viewing and a disc with rights to all of our images. Since we live outside of MI we only had the wedding day photography in our package. Gen had an assistant the day of our wedding, which was wonderful, we have images of our important moments captured from different angles.
  • How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? She is very laid back, organized, and easy to talk to and get to know. We felt very comfortable with her on our big day because she took time to understand what was important to us on our big day. I think she was even able to laugh at some of my dad's bad jokes! She made the day fun and easy going for us and our family.

Review: Creative, Classic, Beautiful Engagement Photos!

  • What was your favorite wedding photo? My (now) husband and I walking down Monroe in wool coats, holding hands. He is looking at me and smiling and I am laughing at a joke he just made. I also loved the shots in front of the waterfall at the Grand Rapids Art Museum, they are so textured!
  • How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? We used Genevieve for our engagement photos, and she was punctual and very knowledgeable. She told us in advance some of the settings, and advised us on several changes of clothes to bring. She took a number of action shots and portraits. We used the portrait-style one in our engagement announcement, and one of the action ones for our Save-the-Date.
  • What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? Genevieve took our engagement photos, and they were stunning. She gave us a CD with all the images, which made it so fun to send them to friends. We used a photo she took for our Save-the-Date cards; I cannot begin to count how many positive comments we received about that photo! She is very creative and my husband and I cannot thank her enough for the beautiful photographs. After our wedding, family friends who received the Save-the-Date cards or saw the photos online have driven to Grand Rapids from the metro Detroit area just so she could take their engagement pictures!
  • How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? Genevieve helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera (we were both a little hesitant at first) and was very open to incorporating our requests for particular settings into her own creative vision. She was a pleasure to work with, and I would definitely hire her again.
