The biggest advice all my married friends told me when we got engaged was to get an amazing photographer because your wedding day flies by, and the memories are all you have to relive it. When my bridesmaid recommended Michelle Arlotta, I automatically fell in love with her website and photos. Her style is so candid, and I love how the colors pop in her photos. She truly captures your emotions, not just smiles and poses for the camera. After my fiance and I met her, we both looked at each other and said that's our photographer, time to stop hunting. Yes, she may cost a little more than other photographers, but I really believe you get what you pay for. You can tell she is confident in her abilities, and it makes you feel confident that she'll do a great job. We recently had our engagement photos done with her, and we legitimately look like models! She did such an incredible job capturing our love and personalities. I can't say any more great things about her! Can't wait to see what she does on our wedding day! Piece of advice: because she's the best, she books up very quickly so contact her early!! You won't regret it :)
Update: She did an AMAZING job on our wedding photos! We had a long & busy day, and she was great at keeping to our time schedule without making us feel rushed. The candid photos from the reception of everyone dancing are the best - so funny! Can't wait to use Michelle for all our photo needs in the future :)

We’re so happy we had Michelle as our photographer for both our engagement pictures and our wedding. From the very beginning, she was easy to work with and very flexible with scheduling. She was always making us feel comfortable during the photo sessions, and she somehow captured the absolute best moments from our wedding day. Not only was Michelle so fun to work with, but the pictures came out AMAZING! We couldn’t be happier with how everything worked out and would definitely recommend!

We found Michelle Arlotta online while searching for photographers who had already photographed our venue, Perona Farms. Upon finding her website, we fell instantly in love. Michelle is incredibly talented, but what she does so perfectly is that she can capture not just what happened, but the joy and emotion behind every picture. You can literally feel her work, and since we didn't want a videographer, we really felt that she could give us pictures that would tell the whole story of the day as though it were on film. While she is wonderful at shooting posed pictures, the reason we happily chose her was how she could shoot spontaneous action moments throughout the day. Not only did she make us look good (and she absolutely did), but she caught those beautiful moments of true love in our faces and the faces of our friends and family as the celebration went on around us. She exceeded every expectation we had and we couldn't be happier - now we are just so excited to get our pictures and our album in the coming months! Remember - the flowers will wilt, you will never wear the dress again, but pictures are the memories of your special day that will last forever. You get what you pay for and Michelle is really worth every single penny. Plus she is the most calming presence if the day gets stressful, which was so helpful when things got crazy. We cannot recommend her enough.

Having followed Michelle's blog for quite some time, we had already fallen in love with her style of photography. And then upon meeting her, we fell in love with her personality as well! Michelle is a warm and welcoming person with a passionate spirit and a true love of her craft. Throughout the planning process, she was understanding, flexible, patient, and professional. Michelle has a wealth of experience that has given her a unique perspective and insight into all things weddings and she is more than willing to lend suggestions regarding all aspects of your wedding, not just the photography. Michelle helped us figure out a timeline for the day of our wedding, organize and determine a necessary shot list, and helped keep everything moving smoothly. With an extremely large family and a guest list of 250+ Michelle remained cool and calm throughout the craziness, which helped us to remain cool and calm and just enjoy our big day. We have received nothing but fabulous feedback from our family and friends! To quote my grandma (who may I add carried around a disposable camera, haha) "Michelle really earned your paycheck" - she cannot not stop talking about how many pictures Michelle took, how she managed to be everywhere all at once, and how she never stopped moving - needless to she was very impressed. I could go on and on!! We are so appreciative of Michelle's guidance, patience, dedication, and energy. It was a delight to have her as part of our special day and we cannot give a high enough recommendation. Simply put, if you are looking for the best, Michelle is it.

We could not have asked for a more thoughtful, brilliant, hard-working photographer to capture our wedding day! Michelle truly stands out in this industry. She spends time getting to know her clients and their visions, and she works diligently to build a connection that is hard to come by these days...and it shows up in her results!! Michelle's work is fantastic! We thought we were amazed by the images on her blog until she sent us our entire album, and the moments she captured just blew us away! We feel incredibly lucky to have had her as our wedding photographer and are so grateful for the beautiful memories she so brilliantly captured! If you have any chance of having Michelle photograph you and your loved ones, seize the opportunity!! Call right away, and find a date that works for both your venue and Michelle -- you will be SO happy to coordinate with Michelle throughout your engagement and you will fall.in.love with her photographs!

Michelle was AMAZING. She exceeding our expectations in every way in both our engagement session and wedding. Her pictures were able to capture amazing moments and she has such a creative eye. Choosing a wedding photographer, in my opinion, is one of the most important decisions in planning a wedding as you will have these memories forever. We are thrilled that we chose Michelle and will always have amazing pictures to look back on!

We truly enjoyed working with Michelle as our wedding photographer for a variety of reasons. From the moment we had our first meeting with her, we knew her sense of humor, friendly nature and helpful candor would work well to capture our special day and mesh with our energetic families and large bridal party. Leading up to the wedding she was always in touch, and offered honest feedback and real-time advice to help me plan the day's events. As a bride without a planner to guide my decisions, I really appreciated her transparency and professionalism in helping me make sure the photos captured would match what I had always hoped for.

On our wedding day, Michelle went above and beyond for us, shooting outside in the very chilly temperatures for early April, making us laugh and checking with us to make sure we captured each shot we had hoped to.

Following the wedding she posted sneak peek photos online in the days following (which every bride appreciates after the whirlwind of a wedding day) and a beautiful blog post that our friends and family raved about. Our digital proofs were delivered earlier than promised and our families as well as ourselves were taken aback and in awe of the photos and moments Michelle captured throughout the day. Seeing and experiencing the day again through her eyes is irreplaceable and we will cherish the photos forever, from the beautiful portraits to the AMAZING dance floor pictures that still have us rolling in laughter after seeing them multiple times.

Michelle is amazing, patient and so talented, we would recommend her to anyone :)

From day 1, Michelle was nothing but an absolute pleasure to work with. She has the most creative style to her photography which is what we were looking for. We were also very impressed with her album design. She was always responsive and helpful throughout the entire process, right down to figuring out how to button the last part of my dress the day of the wedding! She always made me feel comfortable even though I tend to be a tense person. Throughout the reception we barely noticed she was there and she captured so many great pictures. We could not have asked for a better photographer and person to be part of our amazing day!!!

We don’t even know where to begin to express how happy we are with the pictures from the wedding! Michelle was amazing and we really feel she captured who we are as a couple. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and truly knows her stuff. Our venue had some lighting issues that could make shooting a challenge, and Michelle knocked it out of the park. The day of the wedding, she really was a “ninja”…our families both mentioned that they didn’t even see her at the ceremony/reception and yet she was able to capture every moment.
