Ray Anthony Photography is now better than ever! As a husband and wife team, combined, we will offer you Ray's love and passion for his documentary style of photographing weddings, and Beth's own creative talents as well! She has spent years working with Hollywood celebrities and catering to their specific (and sometimes eccentric) needs and winning them over with her attention to detail and her sincerity! You will know immediately from our first meeting, that you too will be given the "STAR" treatment!
When we are commissioned to photograph a wedding, we truly believe it’s our job to photograph the “complete story” of that day in your life! That's why we provide "unlimited coverage" on your wedding day!
If we were hired by Time Magazine to photograph a celebrity’s life in one day, we would be ready to go at the crack of dawn and plan to hang around with my camera until the wee hours of the night! We would not want one moment of the day to be missed! When we say “unlimited wedding coverage”, that’s exactly what we mean and it’s rare for us to be at a wedding less than 12 hours. If you want us with you when you’re waking up with your coffee and biscotti, we will be there. If you’re running out the door at midnight to your Cinderella-carriage, we will be there to catch the moment before it turns into a pumpkin!
We don’t want to miss a thing!
Our showroom is located in downtown Birmingham, Michigan to meet with you personally. If you are not available to meet in person, we are more than willing to provide you with a consultation over the phone or via Skype or Facetime.

Award Winning Photos
The Wedding Photojournalist Association proudly recognizes the accomplishments and creative excellence of Ray. The following awards have been earned by Ray from the WPJA. These achievements come with great merit considering the high level of competition that a member faces in the contests.
This fun moment successfully tells a story. The crop guides my eye to their entanglement.
The lore of the bouquet toss says that catching this fragrant bundle could lead to love, romance and a wedding proposal. But mostly itʼs just about the catch. The two competitors in a pileup confirm just that.
Five guys tying bowties may sound like just another tongue twister but, here they are all five doing their best to get it right before walking the aisle. However, itʼs the groom that makes the image even better with a face that says all we need to know about the challenge.
Itʼs fun, itʼs colorful, and itʼs an interesting composition. Great place to take a photograph.
