Michele is an outstanding photographer! She went above and beyond to catch every detail of our wedding, yet she never interrupted the natural flow of the event. On top of that she is a wonderful person with so much passion for her work and the people within it. She will support you, make you feel beautiful and she will capture every smile along the way!
Just talk to her. It'll be worth your time!

We had a somewhat unconventional wedding with a small and fun ceremony in our living room and then later a house party with all our friends. We skipped most wedding gadgets but were sure that we wanted a photographer but it had to be the right one! Michele was awesome from the initial relaxed but professional phone-meeting to the day of the wedding and the party. I am not sure how she managed to get the fantastic shots she did because I did not notice her moving around most of the time. We definitely wanted in-action shots and to avoid posed pictures and she gave just the right amount of suggestions and directions and they turned out wonderfully quirky. Thank you Michele!!

Michele took my wedding pictures in July 2016. She is an amazing photographer and very professional. The pictures she took were awesome! I am very happy with her service and would recommend her to my friends.

Amazing, dedicated, and caring.

Michele was our wedding photographer in 2017 and she was absolutely amazing! She really focuses on communication to make sure you are getting what you want, worry-free. She is great at helping you pose and also capturing the spontaneous and unplanned moments. From our first meeting, we could tell Michele truly cares about her clients and loves what she does.

Wedding day

We came across at Michelle's name when looking for a photographer for our special day and immediately fell in love with her natural and clean style of photography. Her fun and bubbly personality, mixed with her punctuality, organizational, and professionalism, makes for a stress free fun and smooth experience from an otherwise stressfull wedding day. It's hard to imagine a better experience, and we cannot recommend her enough to anyone and everyone who's thinking of recording their memories in a special way. She's truly special herself.

An all around amazing photographer!

We are so lucky we found and hired Michele to be our wedding photographer! She was the first vendor we booked (even before we had paid the deposit on our venue!) and from the start she has been such a pleasure to work with. We knew after our first meeting with her that her personality fit with ours- she is down to earth but loves to have fun, and that's exactly what we were looking for!

We did our engagement session with Michele just over a year before our wedding, and as we had never done a professional photoshoot before it was a really nice way to get a sense of what it would feel like to get photos done on the wedding day. Michele was really great about letting us be ourselves and feel natural, but also directing us when we needed it- and she had some great fun suggestions! We loved how our engagement photos turned out!

Leading up to the wedding Michele was very helpful, and even met me at the wedding venue one day to talk about possible photo locations (and good thing we made a back up plan for a rainy day, because it was quite rainy the day of the wedding!). There were other vendors who I felt were hard to get in touch with before the wedding or that I wasn't sure if we were on the same page, but Michele was always on top of everything and even called me a few days before the wedding to check in and make sure we were feeling comfortable!

The day of the wedding, we were running behind when Michele showed up, but she took it all in stride and somehow managed to not only get us back on track before the ceremony, but also to get all the before-ceremony photos done that we had asked for (we did first look, bride & groom photos, wedding party photos, and some family photos all before the ceremony)! I was so grateful because I was feeling stressed about time but she got us through all the photos without feeling rushed at all :)

She sent us our wedding photo gallery 5 weeks after our wedding, and we love all of our photos! We have such a nice mix of delightful candid photos, both of us and our friends & family, and of gorgeous posed shots. I have probably looked through our photo gallery a million times since Michele sent it to us, and each time I find new favourites! You can tell Michele really cares about her customers and in capturing these special life moments :) We could not be happier- if you are looking for an excellent, fun, organized, caring photographer, we highly recommend Michele!

Our best wedding vendor decision

We knew we made the right decision when we met Michele. Her talent speaks for itself when you look at her work but it’s when you’re working with her that you get a sense of just how good she is at ALL aspects of being a good photographer. She catches the hidden moments; doesn’t get phased by chaos and meddling family members; can connect with shy kids (and adults); takes initiative to support the bride and groom as needed; has a keen eye for detail, lighting, atmosphere, etc.; and all-in-all really puts her heart into her work. Couldn’t be happier!

Best Photographer Around!

We found Michele using a quick search online for a photographer near our home in the tri-cities. We have nothing but positive things to say about her and the work that she does. Our wedding was the day after a big snow storm, but Michele was more than prepared for any kind of hiccup that was going to come our way. She met with us weeks before our February wedding to scope out the best spots in the event of a downpour, snow, etc. On the day, we ended up with beautiful, dry weather – but she still ended up bringing along one of her wonderful assistants so that her focus and attention could be completely on us. Even with a small guest number of only 30 people, things still got chaotic, and Michele was so helpful and professional throughout the entire process! So many of our guests told us that we had such a kind and friendly photographer. We could not be happier with our photos, and we will be cherishing them for a lifetime; and we will, without a doubt, be calling up Michele the next time we want a special moment of ours captured! Thank you, Michele!

Rain boots and sunshine

Michele is a dream to work with. Not to mention she is an incredibly talented photographer. She captured every moment of our wedding; getting ready, the surroundings, the ceremony, and our cake cutting! Michele is a true professional and dedicated to her business.
We loved her energy. She is incredibly responsive (returning emails within a day) and very easy to work with. We love, love, love our photos and have received the best complements from friends and family on them as well. I have no hesitations in recommending Michele to anyone.”
There is something so special Michele, that immediately we felt so comfortable, so at ease, so well taken care of. Taking pictures with Michele felt so natural, so comfortable, so fun that it just flowed and flowed. And taking the pictures became so much more than just posing, but rather a true heart felt magical experience.
The pictures from the wedding turned out absolutely stunning. So beautiful. So genuine. So natural. She completely captured the essence of our relationship and our wedding day. We couldn’t be more happy and grateful for them.
Michele proves to be the ultimate photographer who will do anything to get the perfect shot, as she lent me her rain boots to wear to get the perfect shot on the beach, while she was in her socks…now if that’s not determination to get the perfect shot, I don’t know what is. And we did get the perfect shot, which I am grateful for. Thanks buddy :)
Love, Ellena and Marshall

Michele is an amazing photographer! We still get many comments on our wedding photos about how lucky we were to have a professional like Michele on our wedding day. She is more than just a talented photographer, she has skills, vision, and also has this gentle, charming personality that compliments her experience.

With Michele, we never felt rushed, and found her to be extremely flexible with our schedules to meet with us when we could spare time. She was able to complete the most massive set list of photos on the day of our wedding, and yes was still able to capture all the intimate moments and details that we would have otherwise missed.

We cannot say enough wonderful things about Michele! If you’re looking for a wedding photographer, don’t let her be the one that got away!
