Behind The Lens

Everyone has a story. Here is ours.

Meet Dan Stewart


Hello! My name is Dan. If I could summarize the best parts of myself into two photos, this would be it. See that beautiful woman sitting next to me? We met back in high school and have been smitten with each other ever since… So much so that we decided to tie the knot and start our little family. My wife is my best friend; she has encouraged, pushed, and believed in me since the beginning. She is the reason I pursued photography and have been living my dream. It’s because of both her love- and the love of my Lord and Savior- that I’ve been able to meet incredible couples and families and capture their beautiful stories. It is through her support that I get to cherish these moments with you and many more.

Associate Photographer


At Dan Stewart Photography, all of our photographers are carefully selected, trained, and mentored by Dan Stewart. Beginning as apprentices before transitioning to associates, our photographers all share the same artistic eye, friendly nature, and commitment to quality.

Dan Stewart Photography may have grown, but our simple philosophy has stayed the same. We are storytellers.

Meet Anna Smith


I am a wife, sister, daughter, runner, and friend. I’m crazy about Jesus, coffee, and light. And if you laugh at my jokes, I’ll be your best friend forever. Having grown up in Northern Michigan, I’ve come to deeply love and appreciate a day at the lake, a patch of white birch trees, winding back roads, and any food you can sneak cherries into.
