What's your story?

Hey hey! We're Elisha and Mike, a husband and wife photography duo based in Detroit, Michigan. We've been using photos to tell stories since 2010 and would love to hear, capture, and celebrate your story!




hi there!

Field Gems Photography is a Detroit-based photography team specializing in Weddings and Family Portraits. 

We're Elisha and Mike, long-time college friends who fell in love, got married, and became best friends and business partners in the process. And while photography is definitely a love, serving people is our passion. 

And when we’re not having fun with clients, you can find us exploring the city on our bikes, obsessing over our vegetable garden and houseplants, playing with Bacon our dog, drowning ourselves in DIY house projects, and drinking way too many...smoothies (Elisha) and coffee (Mike). 

When it comes to photography, our style is raw and authentic. Our hope is that as our clients look through their photos, they are able to relive all the best memories of the day, from the way their wedding party cared for them while getting ready, to their beautiful expressions the moment they first saw each other that day, and even to that time when a family member decided to leave it ALL out on the dance floor. Even the more "simple" moments, like how an aunt kicked off her heels to help set up the decorations, create fond memories as we look back on them.

Special occasions last only a while. Our hope is to bless you with the opportunity to carry those memories--and the full significance of the occasion--with you for the rest of your life.



"Aside from their beautiful photography, they are the sweetest couple and really make you feel comfortable immediately after meeting them. We even had guests come up to us after the wedding raving about how great they were."

"Seriously I'm crying over here just looking at all the emotions you captured, especially in the moments that I couldn't see because I was hidden from Taylor all morning. You & Michael are truly gifted. Taylor keeps making fun of me because he will hear the cheesy music playing from my laptop and say "For real, ANOTHER slide show babe?" I can't stop!"

incredible works of art!!"

"I can't stop staring at your

"...from our wedding day again. When we were looking for wedding photographers the most important thing to us was that our photos captured the essence, joy & moments of that day & you two did that so phenomenally! [...]Multiple members of our wedding party contacted us today & mentioned how they were so impressed by the two of you--how you remembered everyone's names, how you said heartfelt goodbyes to them at the reception, & exuded so much warmth and kindness. We are so thankful you two were apart of our day."

My husband and I live in Washington, DC so trying to find a photographer for our wedding in Michigan was a tad stressful.
