"...Competent and professional, Michelle was both engaging and friendly and invisible-- catching shots that I will treasure without interrupting the flow of the day." - Jennifer Turner

My goal is to participate with people in a way that creates connections through my camera and what transpires are beautiful images of you and your loved ones. You may notice other Wedding Photojournalists stating they just wait for the moment to unfold to capture the moment. I do this and much more. I actively look for these moments and can easily anticipate them happening through my experience of shooting many weddings, my keen sense of emotion and my ability to seamlessly blend in. You may not notice everything that is happening throughout the day and that is why you need a trained eye like mine to be there to capture the big and small moments.


Michelle is a photographer who brings a high level of style and sophistication to wedding photography. The years she spent working in the fashion industry, along with her eye for detail, has given her a creative edge. She is able to document the day with a fun and easy manner while gracefully blending in. This is what she calls photojournalism with style. Read less

Michelle shot our Engagement session in Brooklyn right before we moved back to CA. And I'm so glad we have her pictures as memories of our life on the east coast. She was super easy to work with and made us comfortable in front of the camera. She was adventurous in where she wanted to shoot and because of it we had some very unique shots. Thanks Michelle for everything!

Michelle was very professional and personal. She caused zero stress and made the entire day fun and easy. Her pictures were amazing and she was very fast at getting the final prints to us. We loved having her and I would recommend her to any bride.

My wife contacted Michelle on a friend's recommendation to photograph our wedding. On our first meeting we were immediately impressed by Michelle's obvious talent and we found her very easy to get along with. Just as important, we were really happy that instead of charging us a standard "wedding" fee that ran into the thousands, Michelle gave us an affordable quote that reflected the simplicity of our plans and the short time commitment required of her. We felt very comfortable hiring her and we are very glad we did.

We could not be happier with the pictures we got from Michelle. She has a fantastic eye and her compositional skills are terrific. She was also a whiz at directing everyone in our group quickly, efficiently, and politely. As someone who doesn't usually like the way I look in pictures, I think the highest praise I can give Michelle is that I think I look really good in some of the pics of me that she took.

Like so many photographers now she uses digital exclusively (which we prefer), and of the thousand or so shots she must have taken that day, returned to us 200 fantastic photos. She turned around the photos very quickly (she had some pics up on her blog just a few days after our wedding which was great because we could share some images with friends from all over the world who couldn't be with us).

Michelle is fantastic and we look forward to hiring her again.
