“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever. . . it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
– Aaron Sussman
I love viewing and capturing moments through my mind’s eye and my camera’s lens. I enjoy anticipating and planning for the moments well in advance and as they begin to unfold – capturing the expression, the light and the detail in a simple, interesting and appealing manner. I learn from every shoot, often ruminating over how to make it better the next time.
My photography has taken me places I would not have experienced otherwise. It is my hope that through my pictures, others see and feel these places as well.
I especially enjoy photographing people. The camera offers an introduction, which when built upon grants access. It is however the photographer that develops the relationship. Through genuine caring and showing respect much is offered. My goal is for this special connection, be it vulnerability, uninhibited feelings or other expressions, to come through in my photographs.
How long have you been doing this?
My passion for photography began with my photography elective class in high school. I have offered volunteer photography services to philanthropic organizations, schools and others for decades. I established Lisa Vreede Photography in 2012. Since, I have had the honor to photograph hundreds of events for families and clients of all sizes including Michigan Medicine and the Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan (RIM) Foundation. Genres cover portraits and headshots, engagement, wedding, maternity, newborn, senior and events of all kinds.
