2006 & 2009 Professional Photographers of America (PPA) International Photographer of the Year!

Bev Michel, CPP and Master Photographer is one of only a few photographers in Delaware and Pennsylvania to carry designated certification from Professional Photographers of America. Less than 3% of all photographers hold this distinction. Master of Photography is the highest honor PPA bestows upon a photographer.

A Note from Bev:
As a long-time photojournalist, my favorite images are the ones you don’t really know I’m taking. I am simply there to record your life; documenting. These are the times when you can just be you, and I can capture light as it wraps around you. What is it saying to you? It kisses your eyes, plays in your hair and caresses your soul. Whether it’s your son deeply engrossed with his iPod, your daughters leaping on your bed, your dog sticking his tongue out the side of his mouth, or your family laughing wildly at the dinner table after an impromptu food fight; my hope is to capture these moments in time forever. Light will be there revealing your life. I’ll be there to capture it.

This is what inspires me to photograph. Read less

Bev and her assistants were exactly what we wanted for our wedding. We've been to so many weddings where the photographer moves around a lot during the ceremony, makes a lot of noise, or gets in everyone's faces, ruining the decorum and disrespecting the whole event. Bev did the exact opposite of that - in most circumstances, it was hard to tell she was even there. Even more impressive, then, that the photos were beautiful and captured everything we wanted to capture, without any need for us to push or direct her around. We even opted for the Fusion package for the wedding video, because it spoke to how we wanted to remember the ceremony. Bev is a seasoned professional who we will definitely be recommending to friends as their weddings approach.

Bev delivered everything promised and much, much more. Bev did our engagement pictures and our wedding. Her talent is unmatched, but more importantly she is extremely hardworking, generous, and patient.
Everyone in our party was so happy to be able to work with Bev and we heard comments all night about how great she was with everyone.
In addition, Bev's staff is really helpful and prompt!

We would hire Bev and her team again and again in a heartbeat!

I chose Bev based on the reviews I had seen on wedding wire, and I was not disappointed at all. From the beginning Bev's calm professionalism was so reassuring, and I knew we were in good hands no matter what happened. Our wedding day was a wonderful time, complete with lots of love, laughs, tears, and dancing ... and a HUGE thunderstorm that knocked out the power at our reception. Bev caught all the wonderful moments and helped us make the best of the time with no power. Despite the heat, and pushy guests around her she never lost her cool. We ended up with beautiful pictures and I am so happy I will have them to cherish forever!

Bev came recommended to me through my venue. Once I looked at her website and saw how beautiful her work was I wanted to meet with her right away. She met with me at my convenience and was very laid back, but professional. I didn't feel pressured into making a decision right away, but I knew right away I wanted to use her. Bev and her team always answered my questions and emails in a timely manner. I NEVER had any issues. She did amazing work at my wedding and everyone absolutely loves the pictures. I ordered a couple pictures and they were shipped to me extremely fast. I chose my pictures for my album and they had a preview of the album almost instantly. Everyone I have dealt with at Bev Michel Photography has been amazing. They made the process go smoothly and that is what every bride needs! I would absolutely recommend her to everyone and I plan on using her in the future when I have children. Thanks again for everything Bev..you are the best!!

My mom and I found Bev at Harrys Savoy Bridal expo in the spring of 2010. I was hesitant to go to the expo because I was planning on having a destination wedding and did not see why going to a bridal expo in Wilmington De would benefit me. I was very wrong.

My mom spotted Bev first and introduced herself and me and my sister-in-law who got married this past fall in Oct 2011and we all hit it off. My sister in law, Julie and I both met separately with a few other photographers but I loved Bev already. Me and my husband had decided that we were going to use Bev whether or not my brother and his wife were going too but they also ended up using Bev and neither one of us could be happier.

Bev exceeded all of our expectations. We had very different weddings (my brother and I) He had a big wedding at the Hotel DuPont and I had a destination wedding at an all-inclusive in Costa Rica.

After seeing Bev's photos from my brothers wedding and our engagement photos I knew we made the right choice. She is truely an amazingly talented photographer. Not to mention, Bev is a great person and wonderful to work with.

Bev traveled with us to Costa Rica and we had a blast with her. Her pictures were awesome (just as we expected). Bev has become more than just our photographer, we feel like she is part of the family now!

She is so down to earth and modest but let me be the first to tell you she is worth every single penny. Your pictures are all that you have after your wedding to remember it and they are so important. I could not be happier.

My family and I will be using Bev as our photographer for all future events!

Thanks Bev! You're the best!!!

Love,
Your biggest fan... Annie "Hartnett" Laudeman
