The First's | Brick Street Studio


We are Brick Street Studio, a photographer team made up of Karlee Bailey and Marisa Lies. We own a studio thats based in the heart of Ionia, Michigan and love traveling the state and beyond for our client's photography needs. We shoot a lot of weddings, senior portraits, and families but also love going out of our comfort zones and producing other creative images whether it be for personal use or for a client. We've been doing photography for 7 years but our studio just officially opened in August of 2016.

Today we're going to share with you one of our favorite weddings from this past fall of 2017.

Mr. & Mrs. First

Kylie and Josh are unlike any other couple I have ever met. They are outgoing, fun, and extremely hard working. When Kylie approached us about shooting their wedding we were super excited to get started in the planning process with her!

The wedding took place on a surprisingly HOT September day. It was September 23rd, I think the temperature reached at least 90 degrees here in Michigan, which definitely is not a normal fall temperature!


When photographing weddings, we strive to capture a mix of candid shots and posed shots. We love seeing the beautiful moments between the bride and the groom but also love remembering those friends and families that were there on such an important day. Most of all, we want our bride and groom to interact with each other almost as though we aren't even there. This couple definitely did just that.



I think this was one of my favorite weddings of 2017 because of how absolutely stunning everything was. For being a small town wedding, every detail was absolutely perfect. The bride and groom looked amazing and you could truly tell how much they love each other. They were completely in sync with one another all throughout the day.



When speaking with the couple ahead of time, we talked about getting some sunset shots in the field. They wanted to be sure that this was a part of their day and I am so glad they made this decision! This location could not have been more beautiful for a few sunset images. We really like meeting with our couples before the big day to go over any details of their wedding that they definitely want to be included. We want to give our couples the most amazing day to remember and go above and beyond capturing moments they will never forget.


Although this was one of our favorites, we did have MANY other favorites this past year. It is hard to choose just one! Each session is completely different and we enjoy making new relationships with our clients each time we show up to photograph them. We are looking forward to 2018 and whatever it has in store for us!

Karlee & Marisa
