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!Sent on 12/06/2018

We met Michele through a mutual friend long before we hired her for our engagement photos. We were looking for quality photos to capture our whimsical personalities and the essence of the Northwest, and Michele did not disappoint. Neither of us have spent much time in front of the camera, but with simple instruction, great lighting, and maybe a bit of luck, Michele captured great shot after great shot. We really enjoyed the experience and the photos delivered exactly what we were looking for. We only wish she could have captured our Washington wedding.Sent on 08/09/2017

I am so glad you love your photos and hope you look back on them with fond memories for years to come! I can't wait to hear how the wedding goes! Thanks so much for your kind review.

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!!Sent on 26/04/2017

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!
