Row Photography is based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and provides services for weddings in the surrounding area. With two decades of experience, and almost 300 weddings captured, Don’s attention to detail and passion for photography will bring your visions to life on your magical day! He typically brings a helper / second shooter to catch everything.

I would be truly honored if you would consider me for your magical day! As you will see, I offer very competitive prices and my award-winning quality far exceeds my fees. I am Wedding Wire 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023 Couples’ Choice Award winners. This alone sets me apart from many others and can help your wedding budget. You will read in my reviews that I am pleasant, enjoyable, and easy to work with. My photography leans toward a more artistic slant. I would be delighted to meet with you in person to discuss your big day and determine the look you desire.

First and foremost, your wedding day should be delightful and memorable. My experience of photographing hundreds of weddings, coupled with my sense of humor can help reduce your nervousness and ensure that you have a fantastic day with hundreds of great photos. You focus on yourself and I will capture the memories. If desired I am more than happy to assist with posing.

To explain my services: I will of course capture all your big moments: the kiss, cake cutting, tossing the flowers, dancing, etc. Besides taking typically over a thousand photos which I edit. I also answer questions as they pop up during your wedding. I bring my laptop to display a slideshow of your wedding photos at the reception on a monitor. I will send you a wedding day timeline example to help you plan your day along with tips and a list of possible poses for your review. I typically send your photos to you within two weeks of your wedding and archive a copy of your photos in case yours are lost in the future.

Your reception will feel like a royal red carpet event with my take on the traditional photo booth. Optimal lighting created by two Aurora Orion lights with soft-boxes, makes for high-quality and perfect snapshots for you and your guests. Family photos are often a favorite as my photo-booth can accommodate larger groups of people comfortably. Rest assured, the joy that people get from the traditional photo-booths will not be lost. I come prepared with an ornate frame, old Saxon style 1940's men’s hats and some crazy fun sunglasses. My photo-booth is classy, producing a keepsake of quality for your guests; check out my website album for examples.

Best quality photos

If you’re planning a wedding of your own I would definitely recommend Don Row. He has the best quality photos for the best price. He also is a ton of fun to work with and his assistant has an incredibly sweet and calming presence. He is also extremely flexible! He was supposed to leave an hour before our reception ended but my husband and I made a last minute decision to leave the reception an hour early and Don graciously stayed a couple extra minutes to take pictures of the send off.

Awesome job

Worked with Don for our wedding 9/2 at Camp Newaygo. He captured Candida photos & group pictures of our 18 person bridal party & guests. From our getting ready to the ceremony & dinner we have some great pictures of our friends & family throughout the day that we weren’t able to see ourselves while being so busy focusing on everything else going on around us. We are looking forward to seeing the video of our ceremony!

Fantastic! Such a wonderful experience with Don! Would highly recommend his expertise to anyone!

Don was so professional, and flexible! Arrived early, and carried out the photo shoot in a timely and smooth manner. He helped tremendously in making people feel comfortable and natural in front of the camera, and came up with creative poses when we ran out of our own. Definitely highly recommend him if you are looking for quality!
