Introduction: Are you looking for the perfect Detroit Michigan Wedding Photographer, to capture the memories of your special day, with timeless photos that will last a lifetime? If you are planning a wedding in Michigan, you have come to the right place. David Taylor, owner of Stop and Stare offers beautiful Metro Detroit Michigan wedding photography at affordable price points. At Stop and Stare, we believe it’s about much more than just having a good eye and a great camera. It’s about taking the time to get to know you and planning out the details in advance, so that you can get the most out of your wedding day photos with absolutely no stress on you. And when we say “no stress,” we really mean it. We will work with you on photo location scouting, poses, and we will put together a fool-proof shot list so that we can capture all of your most important photos. Not to mention, we will collaborate on your engagement photo session so that you and your fiance will be naturals in front of the camera on your wedding day! Over the past 10 years, I embraced photography whole-heartedly, spending endless hours behind the lens of my camera. I enjoy the idea of capturing life’s genuinely beautiful moments and am especially drawn to the influence of lighting on a photo and how it can help tell a story or set a mood. As a premier Metro Detroit Michigan photographer, I pride myself of having a keen attention to detail and will do anything to get the perfect shot in order to make my clients happy. I love a creative challenge through and through from scouting locations, selecting wardrobes and props to pursuing creative lighting techniques and posing. I will make your vision for your special day come to reality by getting to know you and truly understanding your goals for each shoot. From traditional posed photos to artistic and whimsical to photo-journalistic styling, I truly enjoy it all!

Wedding and Event Photography

David made our day so easy and memorable. He was so professional from the beginning and made me feel so at ease. I am a very awkward person and really uncomfortable with cameras, but somehow he made it feel completely comfortable. My favorite shots are his candid photos. I can’t give more than 5 stars, but he definitely deserves at least 10!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I like to provide my clients with high quality photos at a value pricing structure. Simple, a la carte projects start at $199 and go up from there. I am happy to work with you to provide a package that meets your budget parameters. Also, if you book your wedding photography with me, I offer a 25% discount on your engagement session.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    If you are interested in my services, let's have an initial phone or in-person consultation. I like to speak directly with my clients to find out exactly what they are looking to achieve. We can collaborate and share inspiration photos via email if you like and plan the photoshoot together. Or, if you prefer to leave the planning to the pros, I am happy to take the lead and direct you as needed.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a decade of practical experience and have attended countless classes and workshops in the areas of lighting, editing, Photoshop, and posing techniques.

Not what you’re looking for?

No problem: we have pros for every job.
