inclusivity makes a difference
My name is Brettina. It's pronounced like Brett and Tina put together and yes, my mom sort of made it up. I am wedding and family photographer born and raised in Michigan. I live near Lapeer, Michigan but travel frequently to Detroit, Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids, Traverse City, Rochester, and honestly almost every city in Michigan. (But don't worry! I also travel out of state!)
Feel awkward in front of the camera or never know how to pose yourself? No worries! One of my main goals is to make everyone feel comfortable and beautiful (and I'll definitely let you know what to do with your hands). Every single person is different and they cannot be photographed the same way. I strive for inclusivity in my work and representing the beauty in everyone.
In my free time, you'll find me drinking iced coffee like my life depends on it and reading a book, watching Netflix, or playing video games. Want to see if we would be a good fit? Check out my About Me page for more info about myself and my photography journey.

"I am not typically one who is comfortable in front of a camera, but Brettina made it incredibly relaxing for me and we had a ball together. The photos are amazing, and she is just such a delightful person to work with. I recommend 1000x over! My wife fell in love with the album she delivered us, as she captured shots from unique angles that produced more eye catching images. She captured all the details that we worked so hard on, and am so happy to have these memories forever. Thank you, from the Natke’s"

"Brettina was one of the best parts of our wedding! She was so calming and kept checking in to see how my husband and I were doing. She was also so fun and kept us laughing through all of the photos. Not to mention, she was so accommodating and respectful through the whole experience. The photos turned out BEAUTIFULLY! We got so many compliments on the photos and just how amazing Brettina was during the ceremony and reception. I cannot recommend Brettina enough! Book her now!"

"Our session was amazing! We had planned very last minute as my sister was going to basic training and we wanted to have family pictures done. I found Brettina on Facebook from a friends wedding and was able to have a very quick and prompt response. Brettina was professional, and very engaged with our loud, energetic family. We had my cousin who is visually impaired present and she worked so well with him, and the other little's there! I am so grateful we were able to work with Brettina, and that she was abl"

"Brettina did such an amazing job capturing our wedding day, I absolutely LOVE our photos and she was the biggest help on our big day. She went above and beyond to make sure things went smoothly and guided me through the day. I also did our engagement photos and a boudoir photo shoot with Brettina. She made me feel so comfortable and made everything so much fun! I would highly recommend her for all of your wedding events :)"
