Todd L Church is an elegant wedding and portrait photographer located in Michigan.
Welcome to my site. I find that it's always difficult to try to write about myself in the BIO area. I can only say that I've come to photography from the standpoint of studying art. I've taken several art courses at Lansing Community College over the years and, during those years, been drawn ever closer to the camera by way of friends and mentors who were inspirational to me.
My first camera was a Minolta 5000i that I bought from Ritz Camera at the mall. I even bought fancy telephoto lens to go with it. I didn't know much about exposures and shutter speeds but I had a great time with that camera. I took it with me on a trip to the Polar Bear Capitol of the world in Canada to photograph polar bears. What a joy that was. The photos turned out nice and I shared them with anyone who wanted to see. That experience showed me how fun this profession could be.
Eventually I ended up in a photojournalism class at Michigan State University in 2006. It was then that I decided to pursue photography full-time. Since then I've had a remarkable journey and have met celebrities as well as regular every-day people. I've shot weddings, portraits, family photo sessions, events, corporate real-estate, and even hosted photography workshops. I love working with people and enjoy where photography takes me.
