2012 Bay City Fireworks Display

This past Saturday Bay City celebrated the 50th anniversary of their fireworks festival by shooting off 50,000 shells in 50 minutes. Wow was it an amazing show.

Fireworks pictures are something that you really only have the chance to do about once a year, so I knew in advance I wanted to capture some unique shots this time around. I positioned myself on Liberty Bridge just prior to the show start. Through a combination of slow shutter speeds and some amazing light bouncing off the Saginaw River waters I was able to capture some images that I’m pretty happy with.

I hope you enjoy these Bay City fireworks photos! For more information on the show, you can visit the official Bay City Fireworks website here. To purchase prints, or view the entire set, please visit my online gallery of fireworks photos.

It’s my philosophy that you shouldn’t have to plan your wedding around your photographers schedule. Its YOUR day, therefore coverage for all wedding commissions cover your arrival at the church through the formalities at your reception, with NO TIME LIMIT. All wedding collections also include an image disk of (edited) high resolution digital negatives.


2022 wedding commissions start at $2495, with most clients choosing from album collections starting at $3095. I generally fill my schedule from April to October each year, so booking 10 - 12 months in advance is recommended.


Please call me at 989.233.8512 to discuss your day, or email me at ryan@collierstudios.com. I look forward to hearing from you!
