Sameer Vasta · Married on 08 of November of 2015
We would, and have, recommended Michelle Peek Photography to everyone we know! We recommend Michelle because she's a joy to work with, and makes the whole process of photography lots of fun. Instead of feeling like a task to cross off the wedding task list, working with Michelle was fun, easy, joyful, full of laughter, and full of warmth. Michelle knows how to make people feel comfortable, happy, and brings out the best in us -- she doesn't just capture events and moments, but the little sparks of emotion between people, the little unseen bits that make every day special.Sent on 08/07/2016
Michelle made us feel like ourselves -- which is saying a lot. In so many parts of life, we are told to play a role, to fit to a certain context; with Michelle, we were encouraged to be ourselves, to be as silly and as cozy as we are together, at home, on our own. Michelle made us feel like it was okay to show emotion, to show love, to show our quirkiness. More than that, Michelle was amazing at pulling us out of our shells, all while making sure we were always comfortable: comfortable with the camera, comfortable with her, comfortable with each other, comfortable with who we were. The entire experience was warm, friendly, fun, and easy -- we laughed so much because we were so happy, and because Michelle encouraged us, every step of the way, to share that happiness with each other and with the world.
So many people are quick to say that the choice of photographer is one of the most important choices you'll make in planning your wedding. They were right, but not just because the photos will be memory-markers of the special day, but because the right photographer will remind you that this special day is about more than just beautiful photos, but about celebrating in the joy and love of your family and friends. Michelle's photos were stunning, and will be cherished every time we look at them, but mostly we'll remember her smile, her ease, her warmth. She made us feel special every step of the way, and her joy came through in everything that she did. We definitely made the right choice.
Michelle Peek Photography's reply:Sameer and Lise! I just took in a huge, pause-inducing breath reading your words. You have a way of slowing me down and reminding me of why I started in this business in the first place. It's not just about taking photos that you can only hope will honour and reflect the love a couple and their families have for one another; it's about the privilege of being present in such a space, and doing your best to hold the space for others so that they can cherish this fleeting moment in their lives. Thank you so much for having me. xo
Jen Zigizmund & Maurizio Silvestri · Married on 22 of July of 2016
Whoa. We seriously could not have asked for a better photographer. The entire experience of our engagement shoot + wedding day was so so fun and easy! I was nervous about displaying or love in-front of a stranger - but from the moment I met Michelle it felt like she was an old dear friend of mine. She was awesome - punctual, friendly, super cool and captured everything we wanted to express in our photos! In addition to being really talented photographer who really connects with your story, she is also an amazingly warn, genuine and cool human being… We are so lucky to have found her and have so many amazing tear jerking shots to remember our perfect day. Thank you Michelle - much love. Jen & MaurizioSent on 26/10/2017
Michelle Peek Photography's reply:You're so welcome Jen and Maurizio. It has been an absolute pleasure getting to know you both, and being privy to your beautiful relationship has been so special! Also Jen, I keep meaning to tell you how much I enjoyed your wedding speeches - you two are fucking hilarious! So much love, xo - Michelle

We've finally caught our breath after a week of admiring the beautiful work that you've given us. It was the best day of my life, and I'm at a loss for words as to how you were able to capture all of the emotion, romance, and beauty of our day.Sent on 11/07/2016
We have such a reverence for these photos, and will treasure them forever. We will have an abundance of gifts for our family; their warmth and emotion came through in all of your photos as well. We've been admiring the photos daily, and are coming close to deciding which photos to get printed (ideally we would frame every single one). Every time I take a gander at your photos from our wedding day, I get butterflies all over again! And, I tear up when I try to put our appreciation into words. Seriously, your spirit and talent are unmatched - we are so lucky to have crossed paths with you :)
Michelle Peek Photography's reply:Sarah and Jason, your wedding day felt like a dream. And for all the right reasons; I was in complete awe at the love you two have for one another. It was such an immense pleasure to photograph this moment in your lives. Almost a year later I still go back there in my mind and relive the whole intimate celebration; I think a piece of my heart will always remain in the peach orchard with you two. Thank you so much. xo
Christine · Married on 01 of May of 2016
Michelle took our engagement and wedding photos. I wanted wedding photos that captured how moments felt, where my partner and I would look happy and in love and most importantly like ourselves (but our best selves!). But, I also felt that this was probably not going to be realistic - I always look awkward in photos and don't look like a model.Michelle immediately put my worries at ease - she is easy to talk to, understood our vision and is one of the most authentic people I have ever met. When I first saw our photos I cried - they were beautiful. Not only did they exceed my exceptions but they were better than I could have imagined. Michelle's work will be cherished by my husband and I forever.Sent on 07/07/2016
Michelle Peek Photography's reply:Christine: I don't have adequate words for you. You've been so effusive in your gratitude for your photos it has just blown me away. What I do know is that I am so grateful for you and Ken, and for the way you engage in the world: with love and gentleness, humour and intention. I love that so much about you two. I knew as soon as we met that your wedding would be so special because it was so full of heart. Thank you so much for choosing me :) xo
Kim Stewart · Married on 22 of February of 2014
When we set out to find a photographer, the experience was overwhelming. I am not one for having my picture taken, and growing up in a family that would freeze in front of a camera, the thought of having one of the most important days of your life captured while looking like a deer in headlights was not one I wanted.
Enter Michelle! From the moment you meet her you are at ease. From our engagement photos to the wedding day Michelle was with us in each moment. She captured our story in a way I do not think anyone else could. From our first look, to the ever famous kicking of the candle down the aisle and the many moments after, I look at the photos and I am there again, reliving the entire day with the biggest smile on my face.
I cannot thank Michelle enough for her patience and her wonderful ability to make you feel completely at ease and comfortable in front of the camera.
Michelle, I am so happy that you were our photographer for our special day and look forward to having you capture the many other amazing moments yet to come.
