Love Notes

Michelle is a magical fairy-photographer-mother who will make you feel like your wedding came straight out of a magazine. I met Michelle 10 years ago in a class I didn’t finish, but luckily I followed her photography journey through social media because I knew that one day I would want her to shoot my wedding. Michelle is everything you would want in a wedding photographer: obviously talented, romantic, fun, prompt, responsive and just so lovely to be around. She makes someone who is super awkward look absolutely amazing through her work. She gave tips, tricks and asked us fun questions during our engagement shoot which brought out genuine smiles and emotion to make for so many amazing shots. 1.5 years later and I still love looking at our wedding photos and wish we could relive that day. Forever grateful to have these precious photos by Michelle and to know such a wonderful human!

As soon as I reached out to Michelle I knew she’d be the perfect fit for our wedding photographer. We had the best time working with Michelle on our wedding day! She is so sweet, fun and extremely focused on getting the best shots! Michelle is so talented and we couldn’t be happier with our photos! They are everything we dreamed and more! Thanks Michelle, for capturing so many special memories that we will always have to look back on!

Michelle is an absolute goddess-no lie. Not only is she beyond talented behind the lens, but an amazing and kind person all around. Going into my shoot, I was really nervous and feeling as if I wasn’t up to standards compared to models she has shot in the past. Right off the bat, Michelle was beaming with kindness and made me feel completely at ease. Every few pictures or so she would shout “BEAUTIFUL!!” or “This is soooo gorgeous!”. I left the shoot feeling much more confident and excited than how I felt going into the shoot. When I saw my pictures a week later, my heart instantly flooded with joy. As I flipped though my pictures, I’ve never felt so confident and beautiful. I am extremely grateful that Michelle took my pictures and these are what I get to show for the rest of my life.

I have never had professional photos taken and was wary that I would know what to do in front of the camera. When I saw the photos that Michelle captured on my wedding day, I was stunned. I couldn't believe what I was seeing! It is amazing to see your love from someone else's point of view and so effortlessly! My husband and I felt so comfortable having our photos taken and at various points forgot that we were doing them! It was honestly one of our most favorite moments from our wedding day. I recommend Michelle to everyone I know not just because her work is spectacular but because she was a wonderful, talented person who deserves all the success in the world!

Michelle is nothing but an angel to work with - professional, creative and of course full of talent when it comes to creating beautiful images. She’s best at being the sweetest at suggesting various poses and gives great direction. I feel nothing but confidence when shooting with her and always love seeing the magic she creates.

Michelle is literally GOALS! Words cannot describe how amazing and talented she is. From start to finish, she makes the entire process super easy and seamless. My fiancé is super awkward in front of a camera, but during the photo shoot Michelle transformed him into a completely different person and he totally let his guard down. He felt so comfortable and wouldn’t stop talking about how awesome he thought she was. And don’t even get me started on how beautiful our photos were!!! They were literally perfection! With a week turnaround time, she created the most stunning engagement pictures that we will cherish to infinity and beyond. She captured our personalities in a way that tells our own unique story. She is SOOO talented, patient, kind, sweet, and I am forever grateful for our gorgeous pictures and memories that will last a lifetime

Michelle was more than we could’ve ever dreamed. I knew before I even met my husband that if I got married one day; Michelle would be our photographer! In fact right after my husband proposed and I said yes I shouted “We have to call Michelle!!!”. Her images are timeless and beautiful and she’s amazing at freezing time and vivid emotions. She captured our wedding and love with vibrancy and luminescence and made sure to capture every detail and every special moment. Because of Michelle, we get to relive all of the colors and magic of our wedding day. We could not be happier to have had her share in our most special day and capture our love. She is absolute magic. We love you Michelle!
