Sandra is a true professional, yet also so personable. I felt like I was hanging out with an old friend - it was so easy and fun! She loves to get the best shot and I’m so thankful to have met her. She’ll definitely be the first one I call for all my photography needs! More...

I was nervous to do senior class pictures with my son but Sandra made him feel very comfortable. The pictures are beyond amazing. The time she spends with clients and her attention to detail show in each picture! I absolutely love her and plan to do our family photos soon!!! More...
Sandra was so wonderful to work with. Her props were absolutely gorgeous and adorable and she took the time to make sure she captured so many amazing shots. Way exceeded our expectations. we are thrilled and I would recommend her to anyone!! More...
I don't know how she does it! We had Sandra capture our wedding last weekend and had no idea how much she would help us out on our special day! Her creativity, drive and coordination was astounding. She even went above and beyond with helping get us to our reception after our wedding party abandoned us as we got a few more pictures near our chapel. Thank you again Sandra and we'll see you soon!

Sandra is amazing! The senior pictures she took of son are absolutely incredible! Can’t recommend enough!
Professional, nice studio and reasonably price.
Sandra did a fantastic job with my Son's Senior pictures! Highly recommend!
Sandra does awesome work! She has been doing our pictures for a while now and she is SO good and very patient with my kids especially my daughter. I highly recommend her!
We feel terrible that it's taken us so long to give this review, but post wedding life has been busier than we could have imagined.
I'd like to start off by saying how incredibly lucky we were to come across Blue Velvet Images. We had been planning our Michigan wedding from Seattle, which had made it nearly impossible to meet with any Michigan based photographers. We were referred to Sandra (owner and lead photographer) by a friend and she was happy to work around our travel schedule. When we first met with her, she was very professional and friendly. Blue Velvet's portfolio is full of beautiful photographs. We were immediately impressed and eager to work with Sandra.
Sandra took the time in the days prior to the wedding to drive around the area and find the best locations for our after ceremony pictures with the bridal party. She knew when the sun was due to set and how to work with that to get the best quality images. Working with the sun actually helped with the timeline of our whole evening.
Blue Velvet images was very helpful making the entire evening flow smoothly and we couldn't be happier with the images that were captured of our wedding!
WeddingWire won't let me upload our photos due to the file size and I don't know how to change that, but if you'd like to see the incredible quality of our wedding photos, please visit www.bluevelvetimages.com Click on "Blog" and find Amanda & Eric. More...

I booked with Sandra for a newborn/family session. My family and I (son, daughter, and husband) arrived at her studio and were very impressed. Sandra had set up several different props and backdrops. Clearly, she had spent a good amount of time setting up before I arrived. My son whom is 2 made this photo session very difficult and needless to say Sandra was VERY patient and worked with him wonderfully along with his siblings. She is a natural! Within a few days my pictures we available. Needless to say they were beyond what I expected and I was in tears! Loved them!! I highly recommend Sandra and plan on using her in the future! I’ve used many photographers in the past and hands down she is the best... More...

Sandra is such an amazing photographer! She is always very professional and catches the most amazing moments, that my family will cherish forever❤️
Sandra had photographed my sister in laws wedding and her photos turned out amazing, so my husband and I had no reservations in hiring her to photograph our wedding this summer. Sandra and Jeff were great to work with on the day of the wedding. Sandra was also very prompt in responding to our several questions that we had throughout the wedding planning process. Our photos were delivered to us a couple weeks after our wedding and they look amazing! We could not have asked for anything better. More...
Sandra far exceeded our expectations for wedding photos!! She is so fun, involved, talented and just an overall wonderful person to work with. Not only does she take fabulous photos, but she's not afraid to tell you a piece of hair is out of place, or your smile is starting to look fake, etc. She responds to texts/emails in a very timely manner and works with your schedule to find what works. I would DEFINITELY recommend her for all your wedding/engagement photo needs. Very affordable as well :) We couldn't have been happier with our photos and service!! More...
Sandra with Blue Velvet Images was absolutely amazing! She came highly recommended early in our search by our videographer.
While researching photographers, we were really looking for 2 things: the quality of work and personality. From her website and samples, it was obvious that she enjoys what she does and knows how to capture those special moments. She really sealed the deal though when we met with her in person. She was very flexible on when and where to meet, and we instantly felt like she was someone we could be comfortable with, and seem more like a friend attending the wedding.
We wanted engagement photos in addition to the wedding photos. The day of our engagement shoot, she was so accommodating, gave great suggestions, and definitely helped two camera-shy people feel at ease :)
The day of the wedding, the wedding party was running very behind. Luckily Sandra already knew our timeline for the day, the important pictures we wanted to capture, and the locations we had to work with. She was great helping to keep us stay on schedule while not rushing us through each shot. Once we got our pictures back, we were honestly so happy!
Everything from start to finish with Sandra has been absolutely wonderful, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a fun, down-to-earth photographer who absolutely loves what she does!! More...
She is incredibly flexible and respectful with your vision. She has a great vision to add on fun pictures you wouldn't even think of. This allows you to enjoy your day and not worry about missing a thing. Pricing was fair and for the quality it was definitely worth it. More...
Sandra was such a great photographer! She captured every moment plus some that we wanted! I was pleased with all of communication we exchanged, as she was flexible in working with us as we lived 2 hours away and couldn't meet before the wedding. I especially loved that she didn't charge by the hour and stayed at the reception until everything we wanted was captured! Great photographer and great person! I would tell anyone that asked to use Blue Velvet Photography. More...
Sandra is absolutely amazing! Her pictures are beautiful. She has done both of my siblings weddings and mine within the last 4 years. We all absolutley loved our pictures. She has good ideas and a good eye at capturing the most beautiful pictures. I would highly recommend Blue Velvet Images to anyone! Thank you again Sandra! More...
Sandra is simply amazing. Thank you for making my brothers wedding so special with all of the great shots! Your management skills and attention to detail were phenomenal! Without a doubt one of the best wedding photographers I've seen. Thank you! More...
Had a fantastic and fun session with Sandra. She is very professional and does amazing work!!! Thank you
Rob and Enriqueta
We would highly recommend Blue Velvet Images. Sandra did an excellent job. Beautiful pictures !!!
If you're looking for a great photographer who's reasonably priced go with Blue Velvet :) Sandra was so nice to work with. The pictures came out so beautiful and she took tons of them. She has a great eye and is very thoughtful. Also the pictures came pretty fast which is nice and she even sent a cute box with some prints of her favorite images. She went above and beyond for us. So happy we hired her for our wedding! More...
Sandra and Jeff did an amazing job. The pictures turned out beautiful.

Sandra and her crew were excellent from the planning process all the way through the reception - very easy to to work with. We had some organizational hiccups prior to the wedding when our photos were being taken (our fault - but who doesn't,) but Sandra and Co. rolled with it and made everything happen to perfection. It was a breathe of fresh air with them running the show and definitely took a lot of weight off our shoulders. After the wedding at the reception, when the stress was lifted and the fun began, they captured every moment to perfection and didnt overwhelm us with a paparazzi like atmosphere - we were still able to enjoy our wedding. Most importantly, however, is that our photos turned out great! I would strongly recommend using Blue Velvet images for your wedding or event - we will always be loyal and use her in the future! More...
Sandra was amazing ! I had a rowdy bridal party and she handled them like a champ! my dress actually ripped during her taking pictures and she still made the pictures come out beautiful no one could even tell I actually used one of the pictures that my dress was ripped on my thank you cards! another awesome thing was she didn't have a location limit she will go where ever and when ever you want which is hard to find!! More...
Sandra did such a fantastic job shooting our wedding! Her shooting partner, Jeff, was equally amazing. They knew exactly when to take the picture and let us do what we wanted! Would recommend Blue Velvet to anyone! More...
They were wonderful, the pictures are absolutely beautiful! The only thing and I mean the only thing I wish they would have done a little more was to go around and get candids of different groups of the guest. The pictures they took were so beautiful, the exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend them and I will use them again in the future. More...
It was truly an honor and the best decision we could have made to have Sandra shoot our engagement and wedding pictures.
She is so professional, creative, and talented, we would recommend her to EVERYONE that we know! I cannot say enough good things about our experience! Everything was so relaxed and Sandra gave amazing direction and also listened to our ideas. Both sets of our pictures are amazing and images we will cherish for a lifetime. We cannot thank you enough Sandra!!!!

Sandra is great and anyone to have her as their wedding photographer will love her! Thank you so much Sandra- you were such a honor to have as a photographer! -- Amanda and Ryan T. More...
Sandra was beyond professional. Our wedding day was captured the way every bride and groom hope it to be. I can't praise and thank her enough for making our day perfect! It rained the entire day yet somehow she managed to capture every moment at just the right time!! More...
Sandra was great to work with! She was very organized and did an amazing job with our engagement and wedding photos!
I can not express how awesome Sandra was! She did our engagement and wedding photos. We did 3 engagement sessions, our summer session was in the water, fall was at Yates Cider Mill, and our winter session was at Wolcott Mills. We had our wedding at Fore Lakes Golf Course in Kimball, MI. Everything turned out so wonderful and the turn around time to get all of our pictures back was amazing! Even our wedding photos came back within a month or 2, I know some photographers take up to 6 months to get pictures done so I was shocked we got ours so soon. She was so wonderful to work with and it was amazing she was willing to jump right into Lake St. Clair with us for our pictures! The hardest thing has been choosing what pictures to put into frames, so I usually print a few for each frame so I can switch them out! THANK YOU SO MUCH SANDRA!! More...
Yes she does beautiful work. Check it out
