Our wedding photos were absolutely beautiful! Michelle was such a pleasure to work with and did an amazing job at capturing every moment and feeling in each moment. Not to mention everyone looks great in all of the photos- there's really not one bad photo of anyone, it's incredible. I would 100% recommend Michelle Frankfurter for any occasion!

We can't say enough about Michelle! She was recommended to us by several former brides, and we're so happy we went with her!

Michelle's style was perfect for us - she'll take magnificent posed formal shots for posterity's sake, and her candid photo-journalism style pictures are priceless! She captured the true essence and personalities of our guests without being intrusive. She also captured the emotion of the entire day and every time we look at her photos, we remember exactly how it felt on that important occassion.

In addition to her pure photographic talent, Michelle is simply just a fantastic person. She was exceptionally responsive and flexible, but she also served as a third-party therapist during the entire planning process. I saved an email she sent me on the eve of the wedding assuring me that everything was going to be perfect. She talked me through all the nerves the day of - even softly distracting me with tales from her photography projects/trips abroad and stories about her sweet dogs.

Michelle is the perfect package - a fantastic photographer, a true professional, and just a great overall person. I hope to contract her services again for other important life events down the road.

I couldn't be happier with the photographs that Michelle took of my wedding. They are truly works of art. My husband and I both love natural, candid photographs, so she was a great fit for us. Though that is the type of photography that Michelle specializes in, she was flexible in taking a few laid back but posed pictures of us with our families before the ceremony, and was responsive to any guests who approached her and wanted to take a posed picture. We really feel that the pictures she took captured the essence of our wedding day. Michelle is also just incredibly nice and easy to work with. My husband and I both felt that her services were worth every penny!

Photography was an extremely important detail for my husband and me with respect to our wedding. We knew we didn't want a videographer (which we find intrusive) so we opted for documentary-style photography to focus less on portrait and more on those candid snapshots that make a memory a true, raw, and innocent moment in time. When we met with Michelle our personalities totally clicked and it was a match made in heaven! Her photographs are very delicate yet are brimming with sincere and electric emotion. As I look at our ceremony and reception pictures, I am instantly transported to that exact time and moment and feel the same emotion I felt then. Now that's talent! A huge "thank you" to Michelle for working with us to truly get to know us and our style and capturing who we are during the most amazing day of our lives!

Michelle doesn't take typical wedding photos, she creates works of art and tells the story of your wedding. If you want true, in-the-moment photographs (not cheesy posed photos), she is the photographer for you. She is very unobtrusive and catches the shots that typical photographers would miss altogether. I can't even tell you how many compliments I've gotten on our wedding photos, and that is no exaggeration. In fact, I was just at my 10yr high school reunion, and people who I hadn't seen or heard from since the day I graduated felt compelled to seek me out and tell me how stunning my wedding photos were (they saw them on Facebook). I can't recommend Michelle's work enough, honestly!

My wife and I found Michelle’s website from a co-worker’s referral. This was very early in our wedding planning process. We hadn’t set a date. We didn’t have a site for the ceremony. We didn’t have a venue for the reception. But on the bright side, we had found the photographer of our dreams!

From that moment on, we knew that we would schedule our wedding around Michelle’s availability.

Michelle’s work is absolutely phenomenal. She brings a sensibility and aesthetic to photography that conveys a truly moving narrative. Through her camera, she has this amazing ability to capture that moment of true emotion. Whether it’s that instant of boisterous laughter, or the subtle expression that reveals hidden emotions. It’s really quite amazing that she is always able to put her self in the right place, at the right time, for the perfect “click.”

My wife and I are thrilled with our photographs. I would recommend Michelle to any couple planning marriage.

Our photographs are truly unbelievably gorgeous. Many people who have seen them have told us they look like they should be in a brochure for best weddings ever. The gorgeous setting and incredible weather helped, but the spontaneous and creative angles Michelle captured allows us to relive the happiness of that day over and over without getting bored. We discover new things every time we pour over our photographs. From getting ready in the morning to driving away at the end of the party our entire story was told from our perspective. We are so so happy we choose Michelle for our special day.

Michelle does a different kind of wedding photography, more of a photo journalism style. She agrees to take only 10 posed photos, but did end up taking more than that. She likes to work in black and white, but did add some color shots of our Mardi Gras themed wedding. She was where the action was happening at the reception and got many photos of people dancing and having fun.
She gives you a CD of your photos and posts them online. Albums cost extra. I though she was a bit expensive, but worth it.

Michelle is truly an artist. I am so happy with my wedding photos - she really captured the emotions of the day, the sense of place and time, and the personalities of my family and friends. The pictures are so alive. There are a couple of things you should know before working with Michelle. She works in a journalistic style and limits the number of posed pictures only to what you specify that you want, usually 10 or so groupings of family in the church after the ceremony. If you want a ton of posed pictures, you should hire someone else. (I really hate posed pictures, especially of myself because I can't help looking stiff in them.) That said, the posed pictures that she took at my wedding are really lovely. But the candid photos are the ones that make me misty. You should also be aware that her services are on the expensive side, but for me, it was worth every penny. You have to think about what you want. If your top priority is dollar value, you can find much cheaper wedding photo packages out there, and your photos will be just fine. But if you want a living record of your wedding, a photograph that your great-great-great-granddaughter will pick up out of a box a hundred years from now and immediately feel like she knows you, hire Michelle.
