I am Cecilia Proskauer, an intimate wedding & elopement photographer based out of Grand Rapids, MI.
My father calls me his free spirit, letting my wild nature guide me and create wherever I go. I thrive on connection and adventure, something I’ve been able to marry through photography. Currently my partner and I are renovating our eclectic little 1970’s trailer that will house all our creative endeavors and be our home on wheels. This will facilitate me coming to you and bring your vision to life.
Surprise has met me in every corner of life. Moving to Grand Rapids from San Diego, CA came out of a trip I took to the Grand Canyon with my friends. It was there I met a couple from Michigan who invited me to stay at their lake house over the winter. Little did I know a couples months later I would be packing my bags, driving cross-country and calling this place home.
Life can be so unpredictable and that’s part of what makes it so beautiful. Moments are so fleeting but once captured last a lifetime. This is what draws me to photography: the unexpectedness and surprise of the moment, the instinct that guides you, the adventure of getting there, and the result that touches you in a way nothing else can. This is my passion.
My goal is for all my clients and I to feel a kinship. To feel the freedom to simply be, create the space to feel safe, laugh and connect—make you feel vibrant and beautiful. And everyday I hone in on my craft is a day closer to capturing you in your purest essence.
My promise to you far extends beyond a simple photograph, I want to co-create memories together, capture tender, heartfelt moments that will outlive the click of the shutter. I want to capture your essence, your spirit and bring out your sense of adventure—no matter where you are in the world.
Lets do this thing.
