My name is Kaitlyn Cole and I’m a branding and wedding photographer based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I capture history and help people regain confidence and self love.

Whether I am your wedding photographer or brand photographer, I am here to provide you with an unparalleled experience. What this means is sitting down together and figuring out how you would like to be photographed, capturing that authentically, and offering stunning products such as wall art, albums and folio boxes.

There are very few certainties in life, but the one certainty I can promise is that I will take the best photograph you have ever seen of yourself. I will cause you to look at yourself in a new way. This is my promise to you.

Timeless imagery for the classic couple that believes in preserving their family legacy.

Show me the way!


Custom, creative imagery for the small business owner to tell their story and grow their business.

Yes that's me!

Thank you Kaitlyn Cole for being the best wedding photographer we could ever ask for (for both our American and Indian wedding)! I highly recommend having her capture your special day.
She was truly amazing and a joy to work with.
