    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!

    Lisa & James,

    I loved your intimate and snowy day wedding! You two were so kind and laid back, the type of people I adore working with, so that makes me job easy ;) Thanks for being so welcoming to us both, and braving the cold snowy day! I love a couple who is ok with getting a little bit dirty (and in this case cold!) on their wedding day to get some beautiful and fun shots! I am truly grateful to have such lovely people come into my life. I sure am lucky to do this work with people like you both. Hugs!

    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!

    am speechless! Thanks so much for your kind words Erik! You and Lisa were so fun to work with, and will go down in history for that list of family formals! As you said we did it all AND got you those sunset photos! Thanks for being open to going in that somewhat suspect little boat that I heard had a wine cork to plug a hole in it! lol Thanks again for having me as part of your special day. I look forward to other life milestones that I get to be part of with you and Lisa : )

    Michele was recommended to me by my mother-in-law who had portraits done recently and I was not disappointed. From the first meeting with Michele, I knew she was going to be our photographer. She was an outgoing, energetic, positive person who helped us create the most beautiful memories. Michele went above and beyond for us. She even went out on her own time to scout the location where we chose to have photos to ensure we got the best ones on our day. Michele was able to join us at the venue to check lighting and layout numerous times. She was very creative and we have unbelievable memories to cherish for ever now. I cannot say enough good things about Michele and her work. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

    Michelle (and her assistant!) were fantastic to work with, very accommodating, friendly, great with kids and funny. Everyone says how beautifully they captured everyone's personality and all the emotions of the day. Michelle worked hard to make sure that everything we wanted captured was. They did a fantastic job of taking great pictures of the ceremony, without being intrusive of our guests. And did excellent crowd control in a public park to get what we wanted.

    Fantastic work, I would highly recommend to all.

    Thanks so much for your kind review Alyson! We had a great time at your wedding, and that family photo on the bench is one of my favourite of the year! I love how down to earth you all were and could really feel the love on your wedding. Wishing you all the best for the future! Please keep in touch : ) Much Gratitude, ~michele xo

    Michele is absolutely wonderful! Not only is she incredibly talented (I am so happy with all of my engagement and wedding photos!), but she is so personable and makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera. Going into our engagement session I was nervous and unsure about what to expect, but I was very pleasantly surprised as Michele and my (now) husband and I spent the entire session laughing like old friends! After, we were in communication leading up to our wedding day (which is even more impressive as we live out of province! We had numerous Skype dates!), and Michele made sure she knew us inside and out so that she wouldn't miss a thing on the big day. She captured countless amazing moments, and I couldn't be happier with the resulting album of photos. (I've also received countless compliments on our wedding photos from friends, family, coworkers). In all, Michele was professional, reliable, and an incredible resource while planning our big day. I highly recommend her!!

    Kristin you just made me tear up! Thank you for such a kind and thoughtful review! From our first Skype date to laughing so hard in the snow and then to end it all off with the Yardzee set you gifted me, I felt so lucky to have met you both and been part of such an important time in your lives. Thank you for picking me as photographer, I hope that I will get to capture more of your family as it grows over the years to come! BIG hugs to you both! ~michele xo

    No matter how nervous you may be, Michele's professional confidence and her skill set will put you into an ease. Michele is flexible and down to earth young women and professional who's talent is obvious and it speaks for it selves. I was so lucky that my son, professional publisher and social media expert suggested Michele's service for my wedding. He thought Michele's cheerful personality as well as her skill set would be just right for me, and he was so right about it. No bridal fears, threat of rain or tourist's curiosity could detour Michele's commitment to do the best possible job and to capture those precious moments. She gently but firmly guided over 50 people (and some para-shooting tourists) so we all had a wonderful experience. Once again, we are highly recommending Michele's services to couples and families who are looking to capture and preserve a true essence of their commitment and love for each other.

    If you are looking for an amazing photographer for your wedding, you just found her!
    When we were looking for a photographer for our wedding, Michele was recommended to us by a friend. And what can I say, she is just great. She offered a 4 hours package which you don't find often and it was exactly what I was looking for. But even though she would not spend an entire day with us, she put so much heart into this job. We had a first meeting with her to break the ice, she took some engagement pictures (which were beautiful), she came out to the rehearsal and she did an amazing job capturing our ceremony and wonderful portraits of us with family and friends.
    I am already looking forward meeting her again, capturing future important steps of our life as a family.

    Anja thank you so much for your kind review! It was my pleasure to capture your lovely wedding and I am so grateful for the referrals you have since sent me, which means I get to see you are more weddings this summer too!

    Much gratitude
