Hiring Michelle to be my engagement/wedding photographer was by far the easiest and best decision I made throughout my whole wedding planning. Her willingness to accommodate both the groom and I superseded all of my expectations. The team and her are not only nice, their well groomed, young, fun and creative. I gave them a few ideas of pictures that I had seen and wanted for myself and she wasn't opposed to it and delivered beautifully . That day was beyond stressful for me, as I was worried about everything coming out right and she did such a wonderful job at calming me and reminding me that this particular day was all about me and my husband. I plan on keeping contact with her as I need her to be my family photographer. I would recommend her to any bride looking for a quality photographer, that will give her exactly what she wants.

When I looked for photographers I was astonished at the prices I was being quoted and when I found Michelle, she was willing to work with my budget and even included a 3rd photographer to capture the special moments as a freebee! Selecting her will probably be your best decision yet!

Thank you for all your hard work and dedication Michelle. You are plainly just wonderful at what you do!!! Keep up the great work!

Michelle and her team were great to work with. She was vey accommodating in taking photographs of our bridal party and groomsmen before our wedding AND made sure that my now husband and I didn't see eachother before the event. She had given us a month turn around time for our photographs and she did even better than that; we received our photographs sooner! Michelle is very professional and someone who I know I will recommend to all my friends who are in the search for a great and energetic, fun, personable photographer. My husband and I have decided that Michelle will be the photographer for our family pictures :)

Please do not be deceived. This girl has successfully trashed our wedding by not providing any professional photo shots. I cry myself to sleep every time I see the pictures she took for our wedding. I am devastated, and I will never forget how she destroyed these memories of our wedding. I am so devastated. She is the worst person I have ever known in my life and I really wish that she is who she says she is. ='( Bad experience.

You are better off buying the most expensive camera and have your nephew take pictures of your wedding.
You'll be lucky to have your photos after sending her 20-30 follow-up messages.
She calls herself and her team "professionals".. please check. They are far from being "professionals".

Lastly, if you still decide to go with this vendor, do not pay your final payment prior to getting your photos.
Otherwise, she is off to a vacation or making excuses that she needs more time to edit.

Really really bad experience.

I'd rather take selfies of myself than have her in my wedding. Can't even stand the thought of her. She will run away with your money, that's what she does best.

Michelle Darlene photography was AWESOME! I was recommended to them by a friend, and I am so happy we chose them as our wedding photographers. Planning a wedding from an overseas location made picking wedding vendors like a gamble, but they were perfect. Our special day has been captured and turned into a real beach fairytale. I highly recommend.

Michelle is such a WONDERFUL photographer! My husband and I weren’t able to meet her until our wedding day, but she was prompt about e-mailing us back and was very professional. Even though we had not met her before, she made us both so comfortable right away and was able to capture so many BEAUTIFUL pictures. She was also open to ideas and is very creative! When we were viewing our photos, we were able to see our whole wedding day in such great detail. We have received so many compliments and cannot wait to look back at our wedding album years from now and see it so vividly through her photos. Thank You so much for your work Michelle!

Michelle Darlene Photography is the best wedding photographer around. It was raining on my wedding day and I was afraid the everything was going to be ruined. Michelle was very proffessional and went out in the rain to take detail pictures of all our decorations and centerpieces. She assured me that the picture would come out great and they came out better then I could have ever imagined. She will not only capture the details of the wedding but she was able to capture the essence of our love in the photos. I would gladly recommend her to any couple looking for a wedding photographer. She was able to make what I thought was an ugly day into beautiful pictures Thank You Michelle Darlene Photography for all of your hardwork and dedication.

We recently hired Michelle to cover our annual fundraising gala event. It was a bit last minute because we contacted her about 2 weeks before the event and just got really lucky that she was available. This was not a wedding so there were no rehearsals or photo shoot sessions that would have allowed us to get to know Michelle before the day of the event. However, that didn't matter as Michelle is one of the easiest persons you can work with. She is sweet, easygoing, has no problem taking requests and got along well not just with our group members but with our 150 guests as well. In addition to posed shots which are easier to take, Michelle has this gift of being invisible because she was taking photos without anyone noticing her - and the candid shots came out terrific! Everyone looked so glamorous and beautiful in the photos and she really captured the feeling that was flowing throughout the evening. She was definitely the right choice and we can't recommend her enough. We love Michelle!

Michelle was extremely flexible and responsive with our plans and what we expected from a wedding photographer. While having a completely non traditional wedding is difficult enough on it's own, finding a photographer that can capture that same avant-garde style onto film can be another adventure on it's own. Michelle was able to achieve that, while maintaining that timeless deeply of class and beauty. I believe that Michelle exceeded the expectations of everyone who was involved in this wedding. She was very personable, attentive, and he involvement only added to the total experience of my wedding.

Photographers like Michelle are hard to find. She did my wedding this year and I couldn't have been happier. Michelle is knowledgeable, fun, creative, caring and passionate about what she does. I never had any issues with her and she was a complete joy to work with. She spent numerous hours detailing and putting her creative input to each and every photo. This meant a lot to my husband and I because it enabled us to remember our wedding day just as perfect as it was. Her photos came out just the way I had envisioned them to be for my wedding album. If I had a particular request for where I wanted a photo taken, she was very open and made the shot even better.

Michelle knew exactly where to be in order to capture every important moment. I asked her to take candid photos of friends and family members and not one person at the wedding were left out. With Michelle, I never had to worry about missing any special moments. I would definitely recommend her to all the brides out there who want to have an amazing wedding album to share with friends and family. She plays to the couple's personality and gives them exactly what they want. I am so thankful Michelle was our photographer for our wedding. Brides, if you want a stress free, fun environment for your wedding, DO NOT hesitate to book Michelle!! She is truly amazing..

Michelle did a fantastic job, due to logistics on the day of our wedding she was able to get some amazing photos even though we were short on time. The location we were at was rather large so she did a great job hunting everyone down and incorporating the natural beauty of the location into the shots. The best part- she edited all our photos on put them on to a disc for us, as well as made a very cool slide show with awesome music. Michelle was super flexible, nice, and a pleasure to work with. She provided a much better quote than other photographers and her photos were top notch!
