Wow, where do I even begin with Michelle?! If I could sum up my feedback regarding her work in 3 words, it would be "hire.her.now!" She was hands down the best investment that we made in our wedding. I had seen her work from the weddings she shot of previous friends and family. From the first meeting we had with her, we knew we would be booking her straight away. She's down to earth, honest, professional, charges reasonable prices, and hilarious! I honestly felt like I was sitting talking with a longtime friend about how we saw our day being captured. She was always timely with responses, and the proof is in the pudding when you look at her photos. She uses all natural light (stunning), is meticulous with editing and details, and really cares about how you feel about the end result.
As far as our wedding, I can't even put into words how in love with our pictures we are. First of all, Michelle did not stop moving the entire time! For 11 hours straight she jumped around our friends and family (completely unnoticed, mind you--this lady is a ninja!), capturing the most perfect moments in an absolutely perfect way. She knew how to make our huge bridal party (22 people!) focus, and also knew how keep us laughing while we were standing in the pouring rain. Our pictures are truly extraordinary--a bride is supposed to feel the most beautiful she ever will in her life on her wedding day, and Michelle captured that feeling for me in each and every shot. Her photos are candid and fluid, never staged/posed (though of course she does the formal family shots), and like nothing you have ever seen before!
To the brides out there deliberating about photographers, I promise you that you will find no better then Michelle Arlotta (I've been a bridesmaid 7 times-I know this for a fact!). Check out her blog, drop her a line, and book your date. It will be by far the best investment you make on your wedding day, and your wedding photos will be better than you ever could have dreamed!

I'm not sure Michelle really needs a review - just look at her work. but I'll give it a shot. I truly believe that the most important decision you will make for your wedding day (in addition to who the bride/groom is!) is who will be taking your pictures. The day will come and go but it is your pictures that will hang on your walls and stir up your memories for the rest of your life. As a bride, the pictures also serve as memories I missed that day because unfortunately, you just don't get to be a part of it all. Michelle will be that extra set of eyes for you. You don't have to worry about "missing" anything because she will get it and she will get it in that candid way that evokes real emotion. Every picture is a kick in the heart or puts a big smile on my face. Every single shot affects me. I feel everything I felt that day. I feel a part of the moments I missed. I gave the responsibility of capturing my most important day to Michelle and I have no regrets. She is one of those people that does the job right because its not just a job, it is a passion. You can tell she wants you to be happy and inlove with your photos. You aren't just another bride and groom. You are two people and she wants to get your story right. I will be eternally grateful to her and I will be using her again for my most important memories.

It was a pleasure to work with Michelle. Not only did she capture every moment, but she also helped to organize the event flow of our wedding day and acted as a day of wedding planner as well when it came to keeping us on schedule.

Michelle was nothing but spectacular for our wedding in late May. She went out of her way to come earlier than expected on the day of the wedding and stayed until the wee end of the night. She was even helpful when it came to us picking our transportation, on whether we should spend the extra money to get a rolls royce or not. She is a photographer and a little bit of a consultant, ha! Our photos also came out FANTASTIC. I would absolutely recommend Michelle for your wedding day if you want "in the moment" gorgeous, candid photos. She is extremely professional, and absolutely nothing but the best.

I can't say enough good things about Michelle. From our first email exchange to post-wedding questions, she was responsive, informative, and so helpful. I knew I was in good hands and Michelle delivered far beyond my expectations. I warned Michelle that my husband and I were pretty awkward in front of the camera and she was able to give us great direction and make us feel comfortable. I was most impressed by Michelle's ability to capture images without being intrusive. She is truly a photo ninja!

The pictures are beautiful, the experience was wonderful - use Michelle with confidence!

I traveled quite a bit to meet Michelle and the trip was worth it. Her unique style of photography was just what we were looking for. She was amazing the day of our wedding. She had a tough job with two brides but she was everything we could have hoped for. She is very calming and makes you feel at ease. Her heart-to-heart with my dad made me cry and proved just how much heart and soul goes into what she does. She is not just taking pictures, she is creating a story. We loved her!!

Michelle is an amazing photographer and a fun person to boot! She is professional, knowledgeable and straighforward...which I have to say was refreashing after dealing with so many vendors that would try to sell us with schtick. Michelle really took beautiful photos while expressing our own style and individualism which I can't thank her enough for!

Michelle was an absolute pleasure to work with and I would definitely recommend her to anyone interested in relaxed, chill wedding photography! Her work is AMAZING and we've received nothing but compliments from family and guests, not just on the photos themselves, but also on her attitude on the wedding day. Michelle was calm and unobtrusive during the "getting ready" portion and then was down in wet, fresh cut, slippery grass for our pictures at the venue! Her hard work definitely paid off because the pictures are amazingly perfect. Throughout the day she was practical and relaxed and never made Cory or I do anything we weren't comfortable with. Michelle definitely loves what she does and really puts in a lot of work to not old getting a great shot, but then retouching and enhancing the pictures so they really pop! I really can't say enough about Michelle and her work. She is exactly what I was looking for when thinking of my photographer! I can't get over the pictures and continue to look at them almost daily!
