Holmes Photography Studio in Grand Ledge, MI
About Mr. Chris Holmes in Grand Ledge, MI
Terrific Value & Service
Our team of photographers at the Lansing State Journal created numerous national award-winning projects and special reports. We had great editors and a desire to do outstanding photography and more importantly we were given the time and resources to do so. I rose to the rank of Chief Photographer at the Lansing State Journal and helped transition the newspaper to digital photography before following another dream of mine in 2005 which was owning my own photography studio. For the nine years in the Navy and 18 years at the LSJ I had continued doing weddings and senior and family portraits as my personal projects because I knew eventually that would be my true calling and photographing fun and happy occasions was a welcome relief from the hard-news assignments (Car crashes, house fires, crime scenes etc.) of photojournalism. With the help of friends, family and many contractors we renovated an historic church building in downtown Grand Ledge, MI that was built in 1903 into what is now the Bridge Street Wedding Chapel and Holmes Photography Studio LLC. We now focus almost exclusively on weddings, portraits (seniors, executives and families) and corporate events and advertising. We've been blessed to see our business continue to grow and expand so that we now photograph throughout all of lower Michigan and other parts of the Midwest. We've been voted favorite local photographer and studio by newspaper readers and having our wedding chapel (Bridge Street Wedding Chapel) win the Lansing Bridal Association's 2014 Business of the Year has been one of our highest honors as it was a direct reflection of our clients' opinions of us as a business and our customer service.
Almost all photographers will tell you that they "truly love what they do" and it's almost become cliche'. What I love is the look in our customers eyes (sometimes with tears of joy and emotion) when they see photos of themselves or loved ones and are amazed at the results. That's what makes this so much more than a profession or a job could ever be and why I will never retire from photography.
