Love Notes

Planning a wedding was, hands down, one of the most stressful things I have experienced. From worrying about decor, to the venue, to the guest list, my dress, logistics, and everything in between, it was constantly on my mind. But when it came to photography, that was one thing that I was completely able to let go of. Michelle made it easy for me to not worry about our photos for the  wedding day. She was so relaxed and at ease and made my fiancé and I so unbelievably comfortable and confident in her and her sheer talent. From the time we asked Michelle to be our photographer, to the day itself, I had no doubt in my mind that she was the best person to capture one of the most important days of our lives, and be a part of capturing every intimate moment, every laugh, kiss, and tear of our day. When it came to the wedding day, she was so calm and happy and professional that it made me feel completely at ease and even more comfortable in front of a camera. Michelle's pictures are such a gift to be able to look back on now and see our day captured so beautifully and truly to who we are as a couple. Michelle's work speaks for itself, she is very good at what she does. But on top of that, she is an amazing person and such a joy to work with, especially when wedding planning can get stressful. We are so grateful to Michelle for all her hard work and, ultimately, for the most magical photos to look back on from the most incredible day.

Michelle is by far the best photographer I've ever worked with. She is so fun to be around and make you feel so comfortable. Michelle fully understood my vision for both our engagement photos and our wedding day. She captured some really special moments and some really funny ones too. Finding someone to be a part of your big in such an intimate way can be hard. Michelle makes this decision so easy. She really listen to what you want and make the day truly fun. We took pictures for hours but it felt like no time at all. She captured our first look beautifully and found the perfect locations for us to take photos. The quality of the photos and the album we got are outstanding. I wouldn't change anything about our experience with them.

I came across Michelle's work when searching for our wedding photographer and immediately felt something inside me. I reached out to her immediately and she responded very quickly! Michelle and I exchanged so many emails, and through each message she sent me I could see more and more how passionate and how seriously in love she is with her work! I instantly felt a connection with her, she is so open and easy to talk to. Michelle was always available to offer any help and advice during the wedding planning process too! We had our engagement shoot in Point Reyes, California. Michelle loves the coast and the beaches and we were so happy to bring her back there! We had so much fun shooting our engagement pictures. It was also quite an adventure walking through fields of wild flowers : ) Michelle made us very comfortable and guided us throughout the shoot! We loved the special intimate time we had together for our engagement shoot. It also really helped us prepared for our wedding day! Our wedding day was perfect and Michelle captured it perfectly - better than I could have imagined! All of the pictures from our engagement session and our wedding are all my favorite, really! Michelle is truly special and James and I are so blessed to have had her capture this special time in our lives!

My wife and I had could not be happier with having Michelle capture our elopement in the Canadian Rockies. She was flexible, pleasant to work with, and took amazing photos. We experienced all that Banff had to offer - from sun and rain - to wind and snow. Michelle was super flexible with locations that we wanted to explore and gave us the freedom to be ourselves and feel comfortable in our own element. The photos we have today will carry a lifetime of memory and emotion. We highly recommend Michelle to anyone wanting to have their dream photos taken. It took my wife months to find her photos through social media (Instagram), and knew instantly that Michelle was the one. She was able to capture the overall mood and vibe of us as a couple along with encompassing the amazing scenery to create the ultimate portraits. Thanks again Michelle, we’ll be very forget our trip!!

We don't even know where to begin. Michelle is absolutely wonderful!!!! We did our engagement shoot back in September with her and were blown away with the photos! She captured us as a couple perfectly. There wasn't one photo that we didn't love. Michelle was easy to work with and made us both feel so comfortable in front of the camera. She was so fun to work with! 

Our wedding is in July 2018 and we are so excited to have Michelle be a part of our Wedding Day! She is incredibly talented and it shows in her work! She is very responsive and extremely professional. We would highly recommend Michelle as a photographer and we hope that we get to work with her again in the future. 

She truly is the best of the best. xoxo

Michelle and her husband, Shane, (as a second shooter) are true professionals. Understandably, every couple yearns to look unforgettable on their wedding day.  We all want to appear: natural, classy, hip, and elegant in that ephemeral moment on the day of our wedding. We want the camera to capture that quintessential element that defines us as a couple. And while every experience is unique, I can say with full confidence that working with Michelle and Shane immortalized our memories in the best possible light. They both understand the technical aspects that make for great photographs and they have invested in professional-grade camera equipment that allows them to flex their creativity and still present highly refined portraits.

We were very pleased with the overall experience with Michelle. At first, we were skeptical about the necessity of engagement pictures but Michelle offered very useful insight and positive points for having an engagement session. Trust her, she's right! And we are really happy we did them. Our wedding day was seamless with Michelle. She effortlessly fit in with our small ceremony and the pictures were incredible.

Whether you are looking for boudoir, engagement or wedding day photos, Michelle is THE photographer to have. She did all of the above for my husband and I plus a day after session. We got so many photos that were all superior quality which we will cherish forever. Michelle and Randi came with us all the way to Los Cabos, Mexico to shoot our wedding day. They were both fantastic, right on schedule, organized and just an overall pleasure to work with. I cannot say enough good things about Michelle! Not only are her photography skills top notch, but she is professional, flexible and very committed to making sure your vision for your special day, comes true. I could go on and on but I will just say thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
