How would you describe your style?
My style is a fresh mix of organic, traditional, fashion, and modern photography. I believe in romantic, natural light and well thought out backgrounds to enhance the imagery we are creating together. I use both film and digital so that I can capture your entire day flawlessly. My main goal, however, is to photograph your love in the most natural way possible.
We love modern photography but would still like some traditional portraiture, Do you do this?
Of course, we know parents like the family photos after the ceremony and all the typical photos with the bride and groom looking at the camera. I am happy to also accommodate those traditional needs at every wedding.
How many images can we expect from our wedding day?
Lots of factors go in to this, but typically anywhere between 500 and 800 carefully cultivated images from the day.
There are so many photographers out there, how much experience to you have?
This is always an excellent question. I have been photographing people in love since 2007. I've photographed hundreds of weddings in just about every scenario possible. Rain, sweltering heat, dark venues, high noon...you name it. I'm prepared for whatever your wedding day brings. I've been a speaker at photography workshops and conferences across the country and been published in a book by Design Aglow. To top it off, Click Magazine named me one of the 100 Photographers to Watch in 2015.
Michelle is phenomenal. She is bubbly, hilarious, personable and makes you feel so comfortable while shooting with her. We did both engagement photos and wedding photos with her and she knocked it out of the park with both. We were so excited to receive our wedding photos from her, and she did not disappoint. My husband could not stop marveling on the softness and romantic feel that she was able to capture in each photo. I cannot recommend her more as a wedding photographer!

To sum up our experience with Michelle into one paragraph is hard because there are so many wonderful things to say about her and her work! From making us feel at ease during our engagement shoot, to rolling with the punches the day of the wedding, her images were above and beyond our expectations. After our first meeting, I felt as though we had been friends forever. Her professionalism is top notch, and it’s clear she is passionate. She went above and beyond her role in our day. Without being asked she helped develop a schedule for the wedding day, kept our insanely large wedding party in check all while capturing the most stunning images. She is the whole package and I find myself searching for reasons to have photos taken just so we can see her again!

I cannot say enough positive things about Michelle and her amazing work! When my now-husband and I first met with her, we immediately stopped the photographer search because we knew she was “the one” - her work was stunning, and her personality was bubbly, calming, fun, and incredibly professional. She took our engagement and wedding pictures, and both sets of photographs are images that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Michelle has a way of making you feel normal during those awkward poses, and captures beautiful shots of genuine love and happiness. Not to mention, she was prompt in answering all of my questions and concerns before our wedding, and was such a calming presence on the big day for this nervous bride-to-be! Our wedding guests and family also RAVED about Michelle and her demeanor on our wedding day! She got people where they needed to be for photos, and made us all feel comfortable behind the camera. I will absolutely be asking Michelle to take more photos in the years to come, and will be recommending her to all of our friends and family!
