ShaVonne + Ryan | DOW Gardens engagement session

Recently I had the chance to photograph ShaVonne & Ryan at DOW Gardens here in Midland. It was an early morning session which I was totally stoked about. I’ve shot at the gardens a few times throughout the summer but all evening sessions. Because we scheduled this session in the morning the sun was in a completely different location in the sky which forced me to look at the entire facility in (literally) a new light. I constantly strive to bring a new perspective to the locations I shoot and simply changing the time of day we went out proved to be an incredible opportunity.

I can’t thank ShaVonne and Ryan enough for being fantastic subjects. Our session may have been a quick one but I still feel we got some really great images for them.

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!
